Moral of this is be really nice to the old guy down the road with a Morris Minor, if Russia gets arsy he's one of the few still trucking....


Wouldn't the capacitor in the Morris Minor Distributor be fried by the EMP?

Sorry for being a Smart Ass... :p :D



I don't think a capacitor/condenser in a distributor would be knocked out by an EMP, best bet is an old diesel with no electronic sensors and mechanical fuel pump etc.

Not sure it is a Rotax, I have owned a 500 and a 600 Rotax in the past and both had an ugly full height magnesium cover on the left hand side to protect the rubber band...

My mistake David, I made an assumption it was an Armstrong MT500, as that's what I associate with military looking bikes. On checking, it clearly isn't.

Ah yes, you can clearly see the hideous cam belt cover with the optimistic TDC indicator window at the upper end, they were left kickers which I have never managed to get my head around despite owning a few including Husaberg and KTM.

Thinking about it, the MT500 would make for a superb mode of Post-apocalypse transport assuming you could get the thing to start before or after...
