Run-flats

2 weeks 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. With the piston out as far as it will go, the shaft through the cover is still free to move. 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. I have 3 pushrods left over after the build ... read

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

I bought an MPI engine from ebay (I always wanted to build the car as an MPI) and got the bits together to put it together.  Unfortunately my mini cracked a piston so I ended up using the bits for that.  This put me back 6 months or more while I built the engine for the mini and then saved for all the bits again: I'd ported a head for the car as part of a collage course (I built a flow bench): The engine is fitted with an SW5i cam, lightened steel flywheel (attached to a clutch that isn't currently working, ... read

Mini SPI diagnostic cable

3 weeks ago
At this moment only for SPI cars! Diagnostic cable to connect your ECU to a laptop or an Android device so you can run your own diagnostics and reset faults in the system. 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. I'll be at Mini in the park if somebody would like to save on postage!   alecissigonis82@hotmail.com read

Jon - corroded electrical connectors, they need to be sparkly clean. Especially the earth contact on the -ive terminal on the battery.  Sensor/s will fail with just a tiny drop in the earth. The -ive connection needs to be completely clean (inc. terminal, connector and screw that holds it in) and all connections need to be screwed tight.  I always remember reading years ago that once you have the -ive connection 100% clean to then smear it in Vaseline to keep it from corroding. Then if all else fails replace the senor/s.  I'd have also recommend filling the car with ... read

After the short drive to the local garage for the MOT, the brakes were locked solid, cracking the joint on the front of the servo released the pressure. Back home, I suspected the servo's air release valve but after cleaning that and replacing the seal, the problem still persisted. The main piston moved up and down the bore with its new seals and the diaphram was new. Out of ideas I decided to replace the servo, after hearing horror stories of new units failing, I rang David Kingerley of Classic Car Spares (01332 873685) to see if he would take a ... read

Hi The information you have provided about this car doesn't make much sense to me for the following reasons. 1/ If the log book gives an original engine number of 53657 I think this number suggests a 1275cc engine probably fitted to a MK2 car built mid 1969 but the prefix to this number should be 9F-XE-Y and not 9F-SA-H which I think was used on some MK1 engines. 2/ The VIN/Chassis number should start with KA2S6-1---- 3/ The Commission number should start with 250S-16------ Hope this helps,   John.     read

Thanks John, The date of first registration was 23 January 1970. However I have just found out that the car was a Complete Knock Down which I have been told by British Motor Heritage Trust when I enquired about a heritage certificate. I am trying to find out where it was assembled, but guess the 1969 must have been when it was made. Without giving away the full VIN number it starts CA2SB130**** I am now a bit worried about going through with the purchase as I have an engine number that doesn't seem quite right and an uncertain start in ... read

Hello, I'm in the process of buying a 1969 Mk2 Austin Mini Cooper S 1275. The car has had one owner from new (who I am buying from) and was extensively restored in 2001. The VIN number on the V5 document verifies the car as genuine, although I know that it is as the owner is an absolutely honest gentleman only selling due to his age. The Engine Number on the V5 is odd though. It is 9FSAH53657. The "H" points to a 1071S, but the number is much higher than the final 1071S engines. If the "H" was a "Y" then it ... read

In response to Basil there really is no significant mechanical difference between a 60's 1275 S and a carb Mainstream so in this my 50th year of Mini ownership I have continued to use 20W/50 with no problem until now. I don't know why the other grades mentioned were recommended except perhaps at the oil Companies request!

I have used 20W/50 in all capacities of Mini engines and in line A series motors as well. The interesting point is merely ... read

3 months ago
It has been confirmed that the Mini of the "Mini Girls Rally Team" will be at Beaulieu. "Diddy Dave" Thomas (father of the team driver, Louise) will be bringing the car all the way from Mull to help raise funds and awareness of the dedicated and invaluable work of the Marie Curie Charity. I hope all attending the event will contribute to help make his journey worthwhile. read
