Some lovely stuff there.

What kind of witchery is going on with the one with the Webbers (or Dellortoes or whatever) at the front of the head?

I assume it was / is as simple as reversing the flow and using a re-profiled cam?

Thanks Colin - it never occurred to me to ask about those carbs on the front, I've seen that car a few times and never thought about it! I do know it started out as a 1970 Mk3 850 though.

This morning I picked up another Mini which I'm planning to customise once I've given it a thorough going over, it's a cherry red Mini 30 which has already had a replacement engine and 'box and a complete new front end etc. I drove it home in the wet and I'd forgotten how twitchy they can be on 12'' tyres, I'll be changing the set up to 10'' wheels asap for starters.

I don't think 10's will clear the late(r) front brakes?
