Was any 1938 morris 8s manufactured with auto gear box

With a little initiative, you could probably research this yourself on Wikipedia. A brief review makes no mention of automatic gear boxes in the article on Morris motors. The first automatic transmission, as we currently understand it, with torque converter and planetary gearsets, was the hydramatic transmission introduced by General Motors in 1939.

My van battery is good what could cause it to drain the alternator is good

something that is always on such as alarm systems, remotes, clocks, computer, is now drawing too much current which kills the battery. brother in law installed aftermarket items loom large on the list, the way this is determined the **** way is to pull one fuse at a time and let it sit over night. when the fuse is finally pulled which, when left out, allows the car to start the next morning you have begun to isolate the bad doodad as it is on the circuit of that fuse. another faster way to do this is put an ammeter in line with your battery and begin pulling fuses until you pull the fuse which cause the amperage to drop down to almost nothing. you have then isolated the circuit on which the bad doodad resides. you can live without that doodad or replace it.
