Default Trial Engine Fitment and Introduction

Hi all,

I have been reading this forum and slowly chipping away at my mini for the last 4 months, so I thought it was about time I started adding to the forum and introduce myself.

I am turning my 1994 Mini Sprite Auto 1275cc into a B18C4 powered clubman fronted manual (I have got hold of some 1970s license plates). i am using a skunk2 inlet manifold and alpha throttle body with the intention of using Jetex parts on my exhaust.

Having squeezed my B18C4 into my allspeed frame and began fitting the mounts I noticed that my cam cover engine mount appears to be different to the one in the allspeed instructions, as it has a lip on the rubber housing, has anyone else found this? It is stopping me from fitting the two inner bolts to the mounting plate. Any solutions?

I have just offered up the engine and frame to the front of my mini and have found that the brake master and distributor clash, am I doing something wrong here?

I am sorry if these questions have been asked before but I have had a good rummage of the forum with no success.

On the allspeed frame the brake master and dizzy clash, you need to angle the brake master away or run without one, or run without a dizzy < bit more to it than just that

Quick search




As for the timing belt cover try and get a picture up if you can, I know the b18's have a three bolt mount as opposed to the two bolt found on the b16 but clearance should still be the same to the plastic cover itself

I don't know if the c4 belt covers are different? can't see why, hopefully wilp will chime in and let you know
My mini has got nothing to prove so nothing to lose
