Ok.... found the answer now.

My confusion was with regard to the top tax hose. Never seen one like that. Now know the reason. Interesting

Re: I’m back.

I’m not worried about ferry. I spend a lot of money with Irish ferries for work each week so never pay for any personal trips. So won’t cost me. I work in wales on Wednesday’s

I’m back.

Been away a long time lads busy with having kids and health and work and stuff but I’m back in Mini ownership.
Just bought a 1988 mini Mayfair. Was owned by a club member at some stage as there is a IMOC sticker in the back window

Re: Mini trailer

I was gonna build one a few years back and did a lot of looking around and research and the best idea i was given and saw was ditch the sub frame and use a nice set of coil overs from a motorbike. They are designed for less weight so suit a half mini very well and make it great to tow.

Re: Snapped Stud

Fitted a set of wheel studs at the side of a very busy Donegal road very early in the morning to Mick Glennons mini clubman back at MTM and due to only having a short supply of wheel studs he completed the rest of mtm and home again on 3 wheel studs.

Re: MTM 2012 weekend timetable

Both Glennons finished despite Micks attempts to kill his mini firstly 4 miles short of breakfast stop shearing 3 wheel studs which we fixed at side of road. Then got to lunch stop and filled his clubby with Diesel. (wishfull thinking i guess). Only car not finished under its own power was a Hornet ...
