Re: Steering Wheel Swap

The horn push assemblies are different so you'll need one of them too. Other than that it's a straight swap.

Re: Help With Engine Rebuild/Larger Head

An unfortunate consequence of fitting a damper is that you loose the timing mark notch on the pulley as it's in a different place on the Mini version. So line up the timing marks with the original pulley, fit the damper, and transfer the mark onto it. A shallow hacksaw cut or chisel mark should be e...

Re: Help With Engine Rebuild/Larger Head

Just to throw another (controversial) idea out there I found I needed around .020" to get the valve to block clearance measured without a head gasket. Looking at the exhaust valves I noticed the faces of the valves had loads of meat on them (for heat dispersal I believe.) so I actually reduced the t...

Re: SU HIF38

A Mini airbox with a K&N element flows well and is nice and quiet. You will need the carb inlet elbow as well to fit the Mini filter box. I would agree the AAM would be a good starting point. I have an AAA fitted to my traveller which has a 12G940 head, HS4 with a Minispares alloy inlet manifold and...

Re: Brake lines-minimum bend radius?

A friend of mine had a copper pipe go on the front brakes on his Humber Super Snipe. He was just pulling off the motorway, luckily there was a fairly long slip road for the hand brake to slow him down

Re: Electronic Ignition

I found I had to make a big alteration to the timing when I fitted an Accuspark dizzy. So much of a change that I needed to move the leads round 90 degrees in the cap to get enough adjustment, works great once I sorted it out though.

I've just bought one of these for the Mini. Cheap as chips but they get some good reviews, no CD but has the option of USB drive, SD card or external MP3 or the like. Not fitted mine yet so can't confirm https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Car-Bluetooth-Radio-Player-Stereo-MP3-AUX-USB-Classic-Stereo...

Re: Big bore exhaust

Looking at Panky's exhaust manifold it appears to be a MG Midget/Sprite manifold which has the manifold outlet facing forward.
