Re: Search for a Mini

I remember looking for that car for kieran a few years ago. I couldnt find it then and think it's been scrapped. The mini NCT only ran out on 02/6/2020 so I am guessing it should be around somewhere If you have taken this from the NCT booking portal then unfortunately it means nothing other than if...

Is your oil pressure gauge union going to clear the feed pipe to the oil filter at that angle ?

Ronan had a stand for running engines on back in the day, frame to hold the engine and a panel with a few gauges to check oil pressure, water temp, rev counter that sort of thing

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.
