Re: In these uncertain times

On the 2 Minors I had there was a hole in the drivers door mirroring the internal lock in the passenger door. The driver's door lock mechanism had a hole where a tab as per the l/h locking tab could be fitted. It was easy enough to replicate an internal locking tab. Probably added for foreign markets

Re: To fit a crank damper or not?

I don't want to thread hijack but what were the reasons for limiting to 7500rpm? Was it engine life or other parts of the drivetrain not coping?

I love the idea of a 10,000rpm a series

Re: 1200cc Datson Engine

Is that the Datsun that is very similar to the A series, perhaps even a copy? Might be useful to someone if Micra's were a source.

Re: Quiet on here

Couldn't resist https://i.imgur.com/jYEa2Uv.jpg There is a chap I follow on Flickr who posts mainly pictures of his lunch. Seriously. Sometimes he varies it a bit, and posts photos of someone else's lunch, or of the group he's with. Occasionally it'll be a photo of a bus or train, some of which are...

Re: Which 1275cc to use ?

Just out of curiosity, was the Marina A series simply a cost cutting version of the Midget version or did it have later refinements? Also, are the better bits: tuftrided crank, better rods etc easily available from Mini tuners and would they fit the Marina?

Re: Engine

Probably obvious but I'll add it anyway, use the Ford propshaft too. In case it's lying around when you go to pick up the axle. You might have to shorten it but the ends should be correct for axle and gearbox.
