Post A Series engines and other bits
Hey guys

I have a few A-Series spare bits lying around (at my parents house in my old Bedroom actually! :oops: ) All located in Macclesfield.

Kind of a preliminary sales thread really...

I just wondered if there is still any interest here for A-Series parts for use on the coupe?

I have:

Unused 1310cc engine with Omega flat top Pistons and Kent 286 Cam
Head that came with above engine (not sure on valve sizes as I'm not with the engine)
A 4 speed synchro Gearbox in good cosmetic condition but I think the main bearing may need repalcement)
Lightly used Swiftune SW5-07 Camshaft and followers
A used earlier type MG Metro engine, cam and head
Set of used 1:3 Roller rockers light blue in colour (maybe Minispares maybe Titan I can't recall)

Probably more stuff too that I can't remember.

These were mosty collected when I still had my mini and were never destined for my Coupe so now I have neither it's silly to keep them (altough I do keep looking for another Coupe :D)

Anyway if this sort of stuff does have a market here I'd rather photograph and sell here than on the mini forums but if not I'll head over to the Mini haunts instead.

Cheers

Rob

I'm interested.

I'm after 1505 crank, anyone? Anyone? Tumble weed, tumble weed :cry: :oops:

And

I'm after a standard 1275cc un machined block- non liner-ed.


So I'm interested in the metro engine. Do you know if it's been rebored?

£££ :?:

This is a good question as I hadn't actually considered pricing anything up! :oops:

I guess I'll have a look about and see what prices seem to be right and update the thread.

Cheers John I think the engine could be quite a nice unit if set-up correctly.

I'm 99% sure the metro block is standard 1275cc some usage marks of course but not too bad if I recall again not sure on the price yet

So I guess in summary there seems to be some interest which makes it wortwhile me heading up north to my mums house to take pictures of all this stuff and getting some prices together.

As I mentioned it is all in Macclesfield so would need some kind of collection. I have a smart car so can't help with anything larger than a camshaft really! :lol:

I'll update the thread when I have the pictures.

Hi I live up the road in Wakefield and could collect the engine block for Stu 'turbocox' if that helps?
