To be honest Shaun, all it needs is headlights fitted, and the handbrake mechanism needs to be altered as itís too stiff to pull up.... apart from that car is ready for MOT... just need some time

Well had a few days on the mini, started getting things done, the list of things needed doing is getting smaller and smaller. Then I started her up as usual, tapping from the lifters when cold as usual, then the tapping didnít stop like it normally does, then something blew the melons up inside the engine, because now itís a massive crunching sound. Sounds like maybe a tappet has disintegrated, or maybe a valve has. Itís definitely top end, and Iíve still got 60lbs of oil pressure, itís very very mysterious. Any ideas? Started stripping the top end off the engine. Anyone selling a c20xe

Disintegrated pike? Don't happen?
They are so strong, let us know asap
More like something's been allowed to be sucked in!
