This model has a side valve engine fitted with no water pump, and relies on a thermosyphon system to circulate the water.The model I am looking at has no heater. Is there any way a heater can be fitted
Thanks for the info. Looks as if I'll have to travel with a "Hottie" in the winter if I buy it, as the engine number is 18958.
According to the Original Morris Minor book, from engine number 77001 it is possible to fit a water pump, and so a heater. If yours is earlier than this then I think you are out of luck - dress up warm!
I fitted an electric water pump to MORRX which has done the job so far, it has an adjustable temp control. I do not know anything about side valve engines but I would think it would be easy to fit as it grafts into the radiator hose.
