Mini Cooper Register
Does anybody reproduce the cylinder number stckers for spark plug leads?
Failing availability, does anybody know what they look liike? Maybe I could get some done easy enough.
They're shown in the parts book (printed 1964), period photos show them and I have seenphotos of restored cars with them.I think theyexisted.
seen em on later cars too, not to sure about the early ones
Uk built cars never had the leads numbered. I guess this must be an antipodean thing.
Maybe they were supplied loose so that the ownercould put them on beforeheremoved the plug leads !!!!!!!! 🙂
Have a look at the under bonnet photos on your web site to solve the mystery!I bought some a few years ago but cannot remember from whom/where- sorry. I do remember you have to heat shrink them onto the the cables. Hope that is of some help.
Sorry meant to say see your web site MK1
Bugger, what do they say, Never say Never 🙂
The were certainly not a regular feature on UK cars, but must have come and gone. I ahve just checked the parts list and they were certainly 'standard' fitting up to 1964 hen this parts list is dated. Seems od though that both my very early , low mileage cars with original caps and leads didn't have them on.
Another Mini mystery to solve.
Thanks, I have e-mailed you.
Hope you can work out those numbers AlI need some for my 1964 S
they are listed in my parts book .
I did before I posted my last comment 🙂
Heat shrink spark plug lead labels, heat & chemical resistant, a bargain at. . . .
Ã‚Â£2.50 / set plus postage, 50p in UK Ã‚Â£2.50 for rest of the world.
Please find a pic of one of the labels fitted to a plug lead.
I have received the lead numbers from Mark and they are perfect, a lovely finishing touch under the bonnet. Thanks Mark, guys like you that reproduce these small parts at an affordable price do a wonderful service to our hobby.
