I agree. The "freshness" date on the forum front page is misleading.  There must be a fault in the database addressing. I ignore it and click on recent posts. This does seem to be a quiet forum, compared with others. read

Mk3 Engine Colour?

24 hours ago
Hoping someone can help with the colours of various engine bay bits. The engine itself should be black but is this semi-gloss, gloss or? Wiper motor casing a black wrinkle finish? Dynamo casing black but ends are bare aluminum? Dynamo pulley painted and what colour? Water pump colour and is pulley yellow and what shade? Also, are calipers gold originally? Drive flanges a machined finish or painted. With my mk3 it is mostly original but some parts were replaced and are not original colour and I'd like to make it as it left factory. Sorry for all the questions. Help ... read

Forum?

3 days ago
I'm a bit confused by this forum - the front pages keep telling me the most recent posts were a year ago, etc. but that doesn't always seem to be the case.  I do appreciate how much work goes into keeping all these things up and running, but it does seem that the whole area has gone really quiet since the re-design, probably coincidentally.  This seems odd when every other car forum I use just gets busier and busier.  Are Coopers now getting rarer and less-well supported, or are owners/restorers not bothering to post any more?  Worrying... read

Peter Baldwin's Rolling Road

3 days ago
Yes, very sad, I've been using Peter since 1974 (Jesus Lane) for everything from Jensen Interceptor and big-block Mustang to Sprites and 3000s.  I always promised to take him a Mini, and phoned to book a couple of months ago.  Damn, damn and damn. The guy at Wilshire's insists that Peter has simply retired, no other reasons given.  Not sure anyone asked Peter. The next recommendation I have been given is Lynx at Raunds, which is further away for me and completely unknown.  Does anyone have any experience of them, or other recommendations?  I have a noise which I think may be ... read

F56 Mini Cooper D 3rd Gear Intermittent Problem

2 weeks ago
Hi, I have a problem with my F56 3 door hatch Cooper D which is a very intermittent problem, but does occur when you least expect it.   The car occasionally jumps out of third gear.  This was and continues to be an intermittent fault which happens at odd times whilst accelerating fairly sedately between about 2500 and 3000rpm in third gear, usually on an incline.  Unfortunately it is a problem that is very intermittent and has been difficult to recreate.  The car has been in to the dealership on four occasions specifically to look at this fault, but they have been ... read

Hi there, Looking forward to sharing things and the excellent advice that is available on the forum. I'm retired now but have been familiar with Minis virtually my whole life. Raced a Mini in 70's on oval dirt tracks with a 1430, 48 Weber etc; did quite well against VWs with their Porsche motors. I've restored a few Minis in my time but this time have to step it up and do a perfectly proper restoration. Just got an original 71 Mini Cooper S which requires a "bit" of work. Actually quite a bit. Waiting for large order from MMachine and ... read

Oh no.  Oh, please no.  Peter tuned every car I've ever owned (apart from the modern junk) since 1976, everything from Jensen Interceptor to Mustang to Cobra to.... you get the idea.  He was only 10 miles away.  Oh well.  The engine/box were built up 5000 miles ago by SMMC, so I can take it back to them for a rolling road session I guess.  The reason I wanted to do it was because I've just switched over to roller rockers which are a higher ratio, so the setup has most likely changed.  They did the gearbox so I'm sure they ... read

Hi there, mini idle gears do rattle especially when hot.  Presumably when it was re-built you shimed it correctly and fitted new bearings?  It might be worth letting Peter Baldwin see what he thinks (he must of heard 1000s), although I thought he had shut down? Paul read

I haven't run it for some time but took it out today to stick some fresh petrol in it, and make sure the new MS roller rockers feel OK before booking a trip to Peter Baldwin for a setup.  When I parked up, I noticed a loud clacking noise coming from the motor at idle, which disappears when I press the clutch.  I fitted a new flywheel, clutch plate, cover and release bearing etc. about 1500 miles ago, and everything seems to be ... read

Wheel nuts under hubcaps

I think my fears for the forum may be true... it's not felt quite the same since it went to the 'big print' version! Anyhow, I've turned down the nuts on the lathe so they clear the hubcaps.  It's all a bit odd as JBW tell me they've sold loads of sets and supply Minispares but nobody else has noticed.  There must be a lot of cars out there with a neat row of dings at a set radius in the hubcaps!

I have a set of new JBW CRS wheels, the ones that look like steel 'S' wheels but are in fact alloy copies.  They seem very well made and needed virtually no balance weights, and were supplied with chromed 'tall' wheel nuts and stainless steel hubcaps.  On the car they look great, but the wheel nuts just catch on the hubcaps and leave a very small dent in the surface as a result. I'm not sure standard bzp Mini radiused 3/8" UNF wheelnuts as supplied by Minispares will work safely with these wheels, as they are presumably designed for steels.  The ... read

Body number and interior colour query

Hello, I have a Mk2 Cooper with an early build date of 22 September 1967.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Roger read
