    It was a Toyota valve from NAPA Geoffrey....Pick up I believe. Fairly cheap I believe and works very well.
    I put one in the TD as well.

    The control panel.

    There was a similar raffle a couple of years ago when someone had donated their car to an MS hospic in Scotland. The car was probably worth around 4K at the time, but raffled for a good cause it generated around 3 times that value.

    I guess I am much lazier than Kevin because I took the easy way out of controlling my heater output. I installed a NAPA inline coolant flow valve just behind the heater that is cable controlled via a knob on a panel I made. I also am using a variable electric rheostat switch to adjust fan motor speed. So, I can obtain just the amount of heat I need in the cockpit without much effort. See what ...

  • Glynn Williams24 October 2014

    I have been trawling for hours and hours through the archives for clarity on this question but I'm more confused than ever!

    As previously stated, I am going to be fitting a Type 9 5 speed to my 1275 A series. I have bought an MMC bellhousing and a later type 'box from a Morris Minor owner.

    I plan to install a concentric clutch setup with probably a 7.5" clutch (from Avenger/Escort?),...

    Sorry for posting this, Laverne - I just checked and my hoses are 5/8 so the units I've been looking at will work fine. Don't know why I thought they were all half inch... oh well

    Hi all.
    sorry about the header- been watching too many "Carry On" films recently!
    OK - serious question - are all the grease nipples on the MG Midget mk III front suspension the same thread size & type?
    Cheers all

    Laverne, I've revived a thread on heater installation with a specific question about your setup - please read :) thanks!

  • Geoffrey M Baker24 October 2014

    I'm reviving this thread with a particular question for Laverne.... regarding your neat under-dash heater switch...

    While googling for automotive heater valves with a pull type control like the one you have installed, I've only seen 3/4 or 5/8 inch pipe versions. What size is yours? As all our pipe/hose is 1/2 inch, do I need adapters to go up to 5/8, or are there 1/2 inch versions of this ...

  • Nick and Cherry Scoop24 October 2014

    Good advice, thank you Nick. I decided not to do that.

    Peter - what a kind offer. But, for better or worse, I've now notched the backplate in two places - only a sixteenth - and it fits! I found that the backplate hole doesn't correspond with the block sinking - not a different dia, just lower - so I'm wondering if Mr Derrington threw this engine together from bits.

    The tin cup wi...
