Yeah man ill be at it!! But will you be? Saw the comment on insurance costin ya 9k!?!? Thats insane!!!
The mini is lookin well!!
As for your problem I cant help ya!! Mine seems to be splutterin and findin it hard to drive (feels as if its tryin to cut out everytime you let the clutch out) and we dunno what it is either!! Mine was a case of running grand for ages than just suddenly that happened!! And Iddles grand!
When I find out what happened with mine Ill let ya no and hopefully it will help ya!!

Hey people...just finished school on Thursday until I have to go back in 2 weeks for the leaving cert...!
But with the nice weather me and my mate decided to try and start the mini it hasn't been started for months whilst I've been in school(I know bad exscuse!) so we put his battery from a mk2 golf in and it was turning over as if it was about to start but wouldn't any ideas?!
My old mini did this too and it turned out to be a faulty rotor arm could it be this??
Cheers
Nathan

you could also try putting some fresh fuel in. I know mine wouldn't start until I did this after leaving it lying for long periods,
the fuel you have in it will be fine to drive with once you get it started too

Hey all had a go at fixing my mini with my buddy today and we reckon that the carburettor is being starved of fuel...when we start it it won't stay idling it just contiously cuts out!! :(
We cleaned the carb and float valve barrel thingy as it was full of rust and gunk!!
Any ideas on what to do next??
Cheers in Advance.
Nathan

Air leak ok I'll let the mechanic know thanks tmg !! Im calling in professional help so I can get this ready for the camping weekend!!:)
Would dirty fuel have something to do with it because there was a fair bit of gunk in the fuel and if that's circulating would it not cause issues??
