Retired mechanic that started working on Minis in 1965 as an apprentice, have lived in Norway nearly 47 years. Currently have two Mini 850s the 1971 one with a 1293 engine + many Cooper S parts added to the mix. The 1973 Mini 850 will be getting a bored out 998 engine + many Cooper S parts. Hope that I can post more photos of the two cars. The 1973 Mini is undergoing a total restoration and it is mainly the engine and transmission + wiring that remains to be assembled. The 1971 Mini sorely needs a total restoration as it has been neglected due to health issues. Mainly the dreaded rust worm, the car is mechanicaly good. More later.
