Re: Exhaust sound getting louder !
Well, Lets See......................
The Morris Minor is a British car, so the heater only works in summer. It doesn't work in winter by design. (same with the defogger). I learned to drive in this car, took my first drivers test with it, drove it in high school & my Wife & I drove it on our first date.
They are still out there, you will see them from time to time.
If you own a British car......You'd better not be afraid of tinkering, so I guess that's just what happened here. Everything is easier to get to with the side cases off........besides, once you get there, they're only held on with four bolts...Easy !! (you will be amazed how much fun bleeding the rear brake is with all that stuff out of the way.
The exhaust manifold was just 'like' that when I got to it ?? (2000 LT, 40,000 miles)
The last owner took pretty good care of it !
