Re: rebuilding two 4A's

Yesterday the first primer on the wings, at the company we were spraying a lot machine parts, and the wings could be done together ;) So when I am finished, and the wing should be in the body colour, inside near the chassis and engine, and the dirty side, all body colour? That means easy painting, j...

Re: New Project

For the original oil I am not sure, but at my company we make our own shock absorbers for weigh scales . Maybe another user knows exact what te original oil was, but I have spend some time by self building and modification from shock absorbers. My '51 Morris Minor needs mineral oil grade 20, except ...

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

When cleaning the metal parts, inside the engine bay, and the front wings, I found this grey colour.
On other cars inside is black, but I have also a car who is inside and outside green...
The grey layer looks like original, from the factory, or am I wrong?

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

Good to know, in that case the one without the bracket is original.
Maybe the previous owner had put him there because of a rotten front, to give more strength..
I do not remove him now, you don't see him when all is on his place.
The other one is also there, and already mounted on his place.

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

I already found a small trick to get a rusted old screw out, take a cheap new screw and a mig welder. One short pulse to connect them and turn it out ;) The biggest question now is the difference between the two, one of the steering columns has a metal strip with 2 holes under the dash, above the pe...

Re: rebuilding two 4A's

By removing the old wood, I see copper and steel screws, what should it be original?

Re: Seen For sale

it is possible to take a car with you as air freight, we are sending also machines by air to other sides from the world.
In that case the height is important, so a big wooden pallet and the wheels inside the car will help.
Putting in a container is cheaper, maybe both together in one?

Re: Bumper jack 4AD

Just look in your area for a Morris Minor Jack, he was in use from 1948 till around 1956, but a lot of people don't want tu use it. For the Morris it is not a nice one because of the place from the jack points. I have just one for my Morris, and am looking for a number 2 and 3 for my own Singer 4A's...

Re: Bumper jack 4AD

I know from pictures, and the Jack from my Morris MM, it looks like the same as that one.
But I have a 4A Singer, so I am not sure about the 4AD one..

Is this the possible color?
This gearbox was not in use since 1968, so it is not far from the production in 1950...

Heritage certificates

I have 2 4A's, both of them not on the road for ages.
One of them has papers, but the year is not correct, the other has only a chassis number and without documents.
To get them with the right information on the road, a Heritage certificate should be helpfull.

Where to get this?

Re: Complete frame

At my both 4A Singers, the chassis number is stamped on the R-side about 10 cm after the front bumper bolt
