The driving position was awful but dropping the steering column ala Mini sorted that. Curiously very little oil ever leaked out of the hole and the problem never recurred anyway once the hole was drilled.

A temporary solution was to drill a small hole in the bottom of the gear shift box to eliminate the pumping action. Computers had not been invented then!
The major problem was clutch replacement. It was the best riding car I've ever sat in. I still have to stop Reckless relieving himself all over my drive! Only real thing is the chronic understeer at speed, they really are dreadful but its solved with Rover SD1 alloys. The engine was blueprinted and would spin to 7000 rpm.
After that we decided enough was enough in those abominable conditions. I presume my mate must have got a "monday or friday"car. Maintenance was generally cheaper than Cortinas because many Ford components could not be repaired no parts available and had to be replaced complete. Mine was auto, and used to eat drive shaft inner UJs.
I can't remember the last time I saw one. Throw in all your Landcrab stories into this Landcrab thread poodge Joined: 23 Nov 2007 Posts: 687 Posted: Mon Nov 01, 2010 3:33 am Post subject: A friend of mine owned an early morris 1800.
When we started switching to Cortinas many customers requested the "old" cars.
The "book" time for that, from memory, was about 20 hours. seats on the Wolseley 6s are awful nylon and the carpets are poor too. I did this one night, but the road was icy--------- With the back wheels sliding on the ice, the car gently drove off down the road all by itself!!!!!!!
