Default Allspeed frame

Still in early stages of my conversion (dealing with heavy restoration of the body) but wondered if anyone had any knowledge of the K series Allspeed frame.

It recommends the use of the r65 gearbox but from doing a bit of reading on here the PG1 seems to be the way to go, which will require some minor mods. I phoned Allspeed and he wasn't sure of what the mods were but said he had heard of lots of people running this setup.

Any info would be great.

Cheers

Some people have taken 2 gearbox mounts and made one, other people use the standard PG1 mount and make an extra part to join the PG1 mount to the Allspeed frame, itís a pretty basic adapter.
Thereís a few builds here that have done it.

Dan is right, getting 2 mounts, cutting them and welding them together is probably the best way. Once you take delivery of the Allspeed frame, you expect a warranty. If you start cutting it up, the warranty will be invalid.

The mounts used are the Rover Metro R65 and a MG ZR 1.8 or diesel type. This has a cable type clutch piece on it. A lot on here have adapted the pedal to suit this. A good upgrade in my opinion. Simple to do and saves a lot of space for your radiator which is much needed in a standard roundnose Mini.

Awesome thanks, hadn't found much info or build references using the Allspeed frame I shall keep searching unless you can point me in the right direction. Cheers for the info, I shall hopefully become a bit more active when the conversion properly gets going.

So just had time to check out the picture on Charly's build as quoted by Dan and although Charly has used the mounts as I quoted, for some reason he hasn't used the cup for the clutch cable, although he's used the cable via a separate mounting.
