You just need to carefully bend the fork holding the fuel delivery needle downwards so the the fuel level then sits just below the top of the jet. Float chamber extensions are simply not needed for a road car. read

Hi All thanks for the replies a real help. I'll probably be asking more questions later in the renovation. If there are anymore of these types of querks with the JC Conversion cars it would be very useful to know. Thanks again read

Alfabee71,   I have a JCC on a 1990 Flame if that helps.  I do know that the majority of heads were painted a fairly bright blue colour. I think that these were the ones supplied by Janspeed.  But not all heads were blue. Mine is actually a yellow-green colour and it's been untouched since 1990 when it was fitted. read

Hi, This may seem a silly question but originally on a Mk1 Cooper and S was there a handbrake lever gaiter?  I had always believed there wasn't one, but I have found it difficult to find photographs of Mk1 interiors which show the handbrake lever.  I am aware that Newton Commercial produce a handbrake lever gaiter, and when I attended the National Mini Show at Stanford Hall recently I made a point of looking at Mk1 cars to see if they had one.  Some did and some didn't.  Certainly cars that were in the concours appeared to have one, but on ... read

Hi, I am trying to source a Hardy Spicer Differential Output Flange Seal.

I switched to normal tyres soon after I bought my 2003 MCS JCW. Even driving it home with the runflats (Pirelli's) I found the tramlining and general ride pretty awful. Although my car was prepared as a trackday 'special' by the original owner, as far as I know, it only has the original sports suspension option and I am running the 17" crown spoke alloys. I switched to Kumho Ecsta as they had the best wet grip but not the best lifespan! The ride on these tires is great, and I no longer suffer from the front of car tracking all over ... read

Body number and interior colour query

2 months ago
Hello, I have a Mk2 Cooper with an early build date of 22 September 1967. The body number is 142 and I am struggling to find out if this number relates to anything.  Could this be a sequential build number (142nd Mk2 body made) or perhaps the reference that all Mk2's shared - any ideas?   Also, the interior has been quoted on the Heritage Trust certificate as being Red.  Would this mean that the seats were tartan red with gold brocade (Mk1 specification) or a solid red colour? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Roger read

Run-flats

4 months ago
Despite what MINI may say to the contrary, I'd recommend dumping the brick hard run flats (have you actually felt how stiff those side walls are?) and go for some nice 'normal' radial tyres with a nice pliable side wall which will improve the ride tremendously. And if you really want to improve things in that department, dump the 17 inch rims and get some 15" rims and enjoy the comfortable ride. As to punctures, just get a can of goo and hope for the best. read

I don't know if it applies to the Verto clutch but I have found that on some occasions with the pre-verto, the push rod in the slave cylinder is not long enough.

I have experienced this in the past on my Austotest car and recently had this problem when rebuilding the engine on the 25, everything was either new or had come off before the rebuild and was in good condition.

But the last big job, and what's keeping me bust today is the clutch (which doesn't work).  When bled through the pedal was/is solid suggesting I've put this together wrongly. I've taken the clutch cover off, checked I'd refitted the top hat (I had): The clutch plate/end of cranklooks okay: Inside the clutch cover looks okay (I think): The release bearing is secure on the shaft (but is free to wobble on it) but the arm shaft (with the clutch stop nut and lock nut on) is free to move - that is, seems like it isn't reaching the top hat to apply pressure. ... read

So a cable from the diagnostic port under the bonnet to a USB connection, when an Android app is used you'll need an aditional OTG adapter(not included). Works with programs like Mems gauge and Mems analyser (freeware on the net) or Mems Diag what's a payed app in the Android app store. £35,- + postage.
