1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

What a great video. Makes me want to dig out my Genevieve dvd. Glad to hear that the 'new' engine seems fine now. I'm still in the process of rebuilding Henry's engine but in the meantime I've bought a Bullnose engine (Cowley) that would appear to be in great order (as you say - time will tell). Unf...

1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

The ones on eBay from Asbourne turned out to be for a Minor. She pulled the ad and relisted them. I did get a set of Cowley +0.030 ones from her but I need +0.060. I was pipped at the post last week on a very good STD Cowley engine which was being sold by Nick Williams. Hey ho.
Best wishes
Andy

1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

If it is of interest, a friend of mine, Russ Hennessy, has a set of +0.060 Oxford pistons for sale (new old stock). He had advertised them for £220 but they failed to sell. I got quite excited when I saw them until I realised they were Oxford not Cowley. Russ can be contacted on 01905 641749 or via ...

Thanks Alan. I will change the ball bearing. That flywheel looks brilliant. I presume you meant skimmed not shimmed or am I missing something

1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

Thanks Alan According to the service information sheet CO/5 there is sometimes a problem with wear on the pin and blockage of the holes. I will give my pump a thorough check over and replace the pin. 14 lbs off one side of the flywheel is pretty impressive. I haven't got mine to hand to measure but ...

1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

Hi I've got my crankshaft back and all the big ends have been reground (mainly because of ovality). They decided to just polish the mains as they were pretty good. I'm waiting to receive a replacement con-rod that I'm going to have re-metalled but have been told that as my others are still very good...

1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

Unfortunately HH ran a big end some 1300+ miles into the Round Britain trip and has come home for a rebuild. Needs a new bearing and shell and it probably makes sense to change the rod as it has been subjected to quite a stress. While it is apart I'm going for a rebore and o/s pistons, new bush for ...

Re: 1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

Looking great Alan. You've done a brilliant job. There are different schools of thought about using detergent multigrades, even classic oils, in the Hotchkiss engines but I can't remember all the technical pros and cons. If you have any misgivings let me know and I'll see if I can dig out the info f...

Re: 1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

I will be having a look at it over the winter, Alan. There is definitely play there. Don't know if the wear is in the bush or the shaft though. I would appreciate a copy of the method if you could email it to me. I've got to push out the broken valve guides too which will be fun. Someone in the past...

Re: 1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

Have you fitted a seal where the cam drive to the magneto goes? Mine leaks like mad. If you have done it I would welcome any tips
Looking great BTW

Re: 1926, Bullnose Morris Oxford 3/4 coupe

Hi Alan i came across your thread by accident so I've joined the Forum. I'm an owner of a 1927 Cowley in Carlisle. It is fascinating following your progress and I've learned a lot from your pics etc. I got my car some 18 months ago and whilst I would have loved to have run it as an 'oily rag', it ne...
