Thanks for taking the trouble but would only help if I was installing a standard subframe with 10" wheels.

All I was hoping was that someone that had fitted a K series into the front of a mini using a Rover/Metro/MGF subframe could just measure the distance from the top of the rear rail to the underside of the engine bulkhead crossmember. Its just a reference really, I think it needs to be around 4 to 5 inches

Page 1 of my build shows how the Watson's frame fits.

In particular this picture.



The cross bar against the bulkhead on my frame was too tight. I had to address this with the lump hammer. Once fitted, it's never been any problem.

I would be really difficult to get an accurate measurement with the engine in place but can try if it helps.

No that all good fellas, bottom of the frame level with the bottom of the floor pan is roughly where I thought it should go. Just on with fabricating some new inserts for the crossmember ends so that I have something to bolt the end plates to so wanted confirmation

Cheers
