My company [the company I work for LOL] was the first ever to arrange a tour
around the Morris factory. It was an eye opener for many customers who came
with us to see the quality control and to see oil being packed in cans for
many reputable manufacturers in OE colours and brands apart from Morris
Like I said my 110 has passed an amazing 10,000 hours of work, which would
be equivalent to 300,000 miles at 30mph. In fact it has done some 130,000
miles of very short offroad journeys mainly fetching cows and pulling a vast
cattle trailer. No work done on any major component apart from clutches and
power steering. I do put the gearbox life down to using MTF type oil in the
main box and thin oil in the transfer. The engine has always used long drain
oil [SHPD] changed every 5000 miles for convenience.
