I have been offered a complete recondition crankshaft assembly for a late 1930s Morris 18, is this interchangeable with the Wolseley 18 models ?
Thanks for any information as I know that some models of Morris engine’s were not a direct replacement into the equivalent WolseLey Model without some modifications.

It will depend on the model of Wolseley that you have and the model the crankshaft is from, if yours is a Series111 it won’t be suitable without modification as the series11 and111 Morris had a cork clutch and the oil supply for this is a feed from the crankshaft. However if yours is a Series11 it may be ok, But all main bearigs are line bored in the block with this type of white metal bearings so If I were you I would only agree to buy it if you can trial fit the main bearings if when tightened it feels even slightly tight then leave well alone and don’t be tempted to swap the main bearing caps from one block to another as gain they were they were line bored from new. The only advice that I am really happy to give is to have your crankshaft reground and conrods and mains remetaled, everthing else is a gamble.
