I can't imagine saying you bought it recently to cut up your spuds and carrots in the kitchen would wash with that sort of knife.

Re: 1968 Austin 1100 Mk1 (Take 2)

Worried the calipers maybe seized up. Not something to worry about even if they have. Those twin-piston fixed calipers are far less hassle to sort out compared to the later swinging singles. Iirc they're identical calipers to the MK2 Spridget. So plenty of spares available, unlike the MK2 and MK3 1...

Re: 1968 Austin 1100 Mk1 (Take 2)

I hope you are going to put a split pin through that handbrake clevis at some point ! With the door catches I find washing them out with WD40 or similar to get them all moving, then blow out and liberally grease them. With the grease nipples have you got a modern / new grease gun ? I suspect they a...

Had a bit more time yesterday to get on with this. Firstly changed the front hoses. These are the old ones. Quick enough job that I forgot to take after pictures. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200705/4f31773c97d6f3feaba0c41eb59ab13a.jpg Blowing compressed air through the old ones showed that th...

Mojo has been low and busyness has been high recently for getting on with this. Riveted on the pipe mount I made. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200704/912bff92e4388a298f2b81fbca534d24.jpg Cleaned up and painted the offside brake back plate. Also mounted the cylinder while it was off the car. ht...

Given that it sounds like it potentially sold previously on gumtree (presumably then buyer backed out) then I reckon direct.

My other half (who's car it is really) found out it had sold for £100 on gumtree earlier today. She is on the Triumph Acclaim Appreciation Group. Shame, I would have given that for it.
It's been relisted.
