Re: New member here, Facebook must be the main source of activity?

Re: 1973 Mini Innocenti 1300 Export

Since my last update I've finished rebuilding the engine and transmission, got the new seat covers and door cards from Newton Commercial and had them installed although the interior is not yet in the car. I also ordered a new wiring harness as after repairing a number of poorly done and bodged wires...

Lower Control Arm Bushing Tool

New member Julian Sandino has gifted the club with this very cool and useful device, used to change the lower control arm bushings without removing the control arms from the car! Thank you, Julian! While he was in there he used the club's tools to change his supercharger pulley, tensioner and do som...

Re: Calling All Miniacs! Sunday June 9th

OK, we are as set for tomorrow's bush whacking adventure as we can be. The ZTR is running and I got the place mowed, the tractor runs but has a huge hydraulic leak where a squirrel or something has chewed thru one of the hoses. I was able to get one replaced but could not get the other one off in ti...

Re: Calling All Miniacs! Sunday June 9th

I got my chainsaw fired up tonight - haven't used it in probably 5 years. The brake was locked up but once I got it free it ran like a champ. Next I'll get the weed whacker to run....that might be a bit of a challenge as it's pretty worn out. But if I can get it to go it will be useful. I've got Gat...

Calling All Miniacs! Sunday June 9th

Looking for club members to volunteer to help me at my property in Olathe.... Rose and I bought some land out in Olathe a number of years ago to build our dream home, but the universe had other ideas. Now after a number of years and some health setbacks we're going to have to sell it, but before we ...

Re: British Car Celebration & Concours D'Elegance, Saturday May 18th, 2019

My car isn't made of sugar, and neither am I, so I will still go. It's very unfortunate that this has happened 2 years in a row and I feel for the organizers as well as those who have all made such an effort to put this together. It's especially maddening to me because Sunday is forecast to be cool,...

Re: 1973 Mini Innocenti 1300 Export

The Innocenti left Tulsa this morning for my shop, looks fantastic!
On another positive note, DHL finally admits they've picked up my parts from MiniSpares and claim it should be here by Fri "end of the day", but given their track record of late I'll expect it on Monday. :roll:

Re: 1973 Mini Innocenti 1300 Export

Engine update..... When I put the crank and pistons in I noticed that the pistons were well short of being flush with the deck of the block, so I did some more investigating, and found that the original crank was stroked - by 1/8", so instead of a 1380, the stroke makes the engine a 1413! So I took ...

Re: 1973 Mini Innocenti 1300 Export

I'm going to take the front seats up to my local interior specialist and let him do them, the Inno seats are different than Mini seats, having more ties and different foam and so on. The rears are simple and I'll do them.....along with the door cards and carpet. It was fairly spendy as I ordered Inn...
