Re: Rolling road and tuning

There were Hif44 carbs complete with manifolds going for around £130 at the IMM last week, I don't know if there is any auto jumble at the Mini 60 show in Mondello this weekend but there usually are sellers at the Causeway Coast Mini Show in Portrush the following weekend.

Re: Rolling road and tuning

HIF44 is the way to go with a 1275. To be honest I wouldn't bother tuning the auto if you intend to convert to manual anyway, save your money for that conversion instead.

Re: Engine doesn't turn over

Hit the solenoid on top of the starter motor a few smacks with a hammer, might encourage it a bit.

Re: Correct knuckle joint....

Brand new cones are much more domed when you get them and the will raise the suspension somewhat. This will settle down as the cones bed in so to speak. Some of the guys on here have fitted the Moulton Smooth-a-Ride system, perhaps one of them can share their opinions on that for you.

Re: Correct knuckle joint....

I wonder if the problem is in the rubber cone or tie bar bushing rather than the knuckle at this point.

Re: Stay Original or Not?

It's your car so you can do as you like with it. Now it it was a black version with the factory sun roof, then original spec would increase the desirability a bit .

For the brake lights, check the switch on the brake pedal for a possible short.

Re: Mpi

Don't think the forum is dead, mightn't be the hive of activity it used to be, but there are still people posting and reading posts. If you are looking for instant answers then there are a myriad of Facebook pages you can try but you'll generally get more opinions than you ask for and some ridicule ...

Re: stage 1 problems

Bit more info needed, but sounds like a fuel problem.

What carb/air filter/compression ratio/dizzy/cam/fuel pump are you running ?

What do the plugs look like ?
