Thanks Andrea
The limit switches seem to be doing there that part is okay. My problem seems to be the motor itself....which I dont think is original. It only has the 2 wires going to it.....the original has 3 (including the GREY....mine just has the BROWN and WHITE connected).
Do you have a picture or can you confirm that?

The switch seems to be behaving too : if you push it up you get 12v to the circuit raising the window and vice versa for the other "down" circuit...

As much as I like the little car I have to face facts, too many now to keep them all, other than sticking them in a shed, which they don't deserve..

More fiddling around showed that the jubilee clip alone is too much of an imbalance to counteract the balance weights fitted so I was able to dispense with the second jubilee clip and just use one with a piece of lead at 180 degrees to reduce the effect of the clip. With this I was able to make the shaft roll evenly on the knife edges This made little difference to the remaining slight vibration. I then turned the propshaft end for end, thinking that perhaps the engine and gearbox might be a greater transmitter of propshaft imbalance than the axle, the jubilee clip and weights are now at the axle end. Again some improvement such that vibration is now rarely noticed, mainly with a light throttle on a downhill stretch at 3000 rpm plus.

Karl your observations make sense as usual, however I have checked the propshaft very carefully and it is straight and when turned by hand in place on the car there is no more than 0.5mm measurable eccentricity in the middle or at either end. Your thoughts on the fabric discs are very logical. I have to say that there was only a small improvement when  new discs were fitted although one of the old discs was in poor condition and the new discs, which were made to Morris Parry’s dimensions are very accurate and fitted perfectly to the driving spider couplings using real 8mm bolts not the 7.8mm ones which are usually supplied.

Certainly the diameter and the mass of the discs makes them suspect even if they appear to run true so I will have a go at them, sandwiching the disc between the two centering spiders  even if, dammit, that means taking the propshaft off for the umpteenth time!

In fact the car is very driveable now and the vibration only happened a couple of times today on a 40km run. In fact it is as you know completely brilliant fun on a winding road and puts a big smile on my face

Yesterday the oil pressure seemed a bit low but cleaning the pressure regulating valve resolved that.

I keep forgetting to ask.  Is there a bolt on the engine block for draining the coolant from the engine or can all the coolant be drained from the bottom rad hose or rad stopcock?
Only bottom drain plug and bottom hose. Water pump will let block water out. Be prepared for a messy exercise.

Spot the difference - my vintage transport photographed in the same spot in 1960, 2010 and 2021.
Trees have grown a bit - Douglas Fir but could easily be taken for Giant Redwoods
