So i got a question for everyone.. I have a 998cc mini engine out of a donor car same year and model as mine.. looks fairly rough but would it be worth it to rebuild it maybe just like a goodclean out and stripped and new gaskets and maybe new head?..
I honestly dont have much clew whats wrong with it because i used thecar for spare subframe and interior parts..

Any considerations are appreciated highly,
Kieran.

strip it down anyway, If it's terminal you'll find out and if it's workable rebuild it with new parts where it needs and it should be good again :D

So as the welding underneath was done i went on to clean everything down to bare metal. Etch prime the lot, then wax oil, a coat of stone chip and finally some grey zinc primer.. Which is close enough for the colour im going for so i said that would do!

So the welding on the outisde was also finished.. new wings, front panel, A panels.. so i cleaned everything down to bare metal and acid etch primed the lot.. This gave me a nice clean surface for me to paint on in the future..

So lately i out the subframes back on.. with adjustable GAZ shocks, hi lo suspension and adjustable arms ..
At this point i was getting excited and now that it was rolling i could actually see it looking like a car again :lol:

Also if anyone has an electronic distributor for sale or a webber carb.. Let me know! :shock: :D

Thanks a mill for viewing!

Thanks Billy much appreciated! It was on hold for a while now but back in action now.. By any chance you know much about removing the flywheel on the engine.. Im using the puller tool and everything but she wont budge.. Would applying a small bit f heat to the shaft be a bad thing to do..?

Mini is comming along nicely .
On the flywheel , have you definitly removed the locking washer at the end of the crank, when you look in you should see a slot accross the crank and flywheel.
Measure the tops of the 3 bolts on the puller to the face of the flywheel and make sure they are the same lenght to insure that the puller is pulling straight.
Tighten the center bolt on the puller as much as you can and than strike it sharply with a heavy hammer. The shock can release the flywheel with a bang and mind your feet.
If all this fails than you can heat the flywheel and again shock it.
I only ever had to heat one up and that was on a botched up turbo with A+ primary gear and A gearbox and drops.
Good luck
