Tortron’s ‘62 Moggy oil leaks and electrical issues discussion thread.

Recommended Posts

I am fortunate for several reasons

 

1. I have free, endless access to coffee

 

2. The man at the steel shop immediately felt sorry for me when hearing what I was building and threw in several extra meters of steel

3. I have a half decent minor to take measurements from

I don't know much about the commercial chassis's I'm afraid Rus.

After this I will be fully set up to replace sedan chassis legs, fairly quickly. So tell your friends

It probably is good to keep that information secret so there's less people capable of keeping these things on the road. 

The greater good. 

Keep calm and minor repairs.

Designed for a boxer 4 so wide and short

65 cm between the lever arm bodies

About 52 cm from crossmember to radiator panel

About 41cm between the chassis rails

 

More or less as tall as you like.

 

Generally you have to cut out the crossmember to fit anything decent. Also the steering rack is directly below that. So that's in the way of most gearbox bell housings.

Tube front ends seem common enough

Not much cutting to get this in - just a RHS front crossmember under the radiator.

My great-uncle bought it like that from the dealer mayte.

Must have been short of the right engine at the factory and grabbed another one that was lying around.

Its just had an oil filter relocation kit put on it :wink:

The real question is why bother changing the number. They get removed when you skim the head anyway

That's a point. Not sure that any of the seven BMC cars I've owned over the years still had engine numbers.

Both the 1098 in mine, and the spare I have, are still sporting their 10MA tags.
