Just been reading about A series diesels in the Austin A30 club magazine. A number of cars, including Minors, seem to have had them retrofitted.

Quite a rare find nowadays. Stationary is the best way to leave it. Don't be tempted to fit it into a Morris Minor - or anything else which is required to travel along a road :wink:

it has a scary rating of 16bhp so way to much for the road

It would be a lot of work to convert your car before you found that out :o
