Default Morris 8 Engine workshop manual

Knowing that quite a few members are involved with historic vehicles, would anyone happen to have a workshop book/ manual for the Morris 8 side valve engine?

Many thanks,

Phill.

What do you need to know Phill? I have a 1940's book that includes the Morris Eight series E engine/gearbox/ axle and body.

I've taken on the rebuild of one of these engines and would just like to have any information that may be available. It's such a simple thing but it can be really useful to have figures for ignition timing, clearances, that sort of thing.

Can get you settings tomorrow, they are a doddle to work on. Pistons/conrods come out from underneath past the crankshaft like most engines from that period. Something you have to watch, there is a gasket on the tappet sideplate that must be fitted the correct way up so take note!

That would be great Pete, thanks! It's in "basket case" condition but pretty much all there.

Our family business was a Morris Agent and had various workshop manuals including the Morris 8. They were given to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in the late eighties before the business closed down. I don't know what arangements the NMM has for access to such things, but it might be worth asking. My recollection is that the Morris 8 manual had a lot less information than the later Morris Minor book.
