Post Engine Steady Bar
Is the Engine Steady Bar found on the lh side looking into the engine bay a GTM part or Mini part?
It is an s shaped bar connecting the main tub to a bracket fastened onto the block besides the thermostat housing
Mine is in two bits :( . But now I know where one rattle comes from :D

Sounds like a GTM part Phil, Mini's only had a steady at the top on the clutch end.

Picture would help to confirm it though

I think the engine steadies are from an Allegro.
Possibly re-bent into the S shape

Post Re: Engine Steady Bar
Owing to the difficulty of obtaining Allegro parts I designed
a replacement steady bar for the Rossa some time ago.
Although it has been fitted to the demo engine I have taken
to the shows, it has not been tested as our Rossa has been
sorned for some time.
The Metro thermostat housing is replaced with one with a side lug.
The GTM bracket on the bulkhead is replaced with a new one.
M12 studding inside tubing and Mini tiebar rubbers with washers
complete the set up.
If anyone would like to test the set up, I can send them the parts
Cheers
Alan
