The throttle cable, you can use a SPi or MPi Mini one. It's a straight swap.

I bought an mpi one, but there isn’t enough adjustment available on it to bring in the slack.

I’ve got some ferrules at work so will crimp a new one on the old cable and see how it goes.

Strange, I re used my mpi cable on mine and it worked perfectly

If you are finding a Mini MPi cable too short would a Metro one fit ?

I modified the original mg cable tonight......I crimped a new ferrule on the end. Not sure why I didn’t think of that before wasting £12 on a mpi cable!

Works perfectly.

Spent the evening in the workshop aka shed tonight, rather than the garage working on my gearbox coffee table - the box that went into self destruct mode which started the 16v project.

Got the casing back from vapour blasting and re-assembled it - I think it looks pretty sweet!

It's vapour blasted - carried out by RD Cox of Reading. They do blasting for all sorts of people, including a Mini gearbox company who's name escapes me. Cost £105 for all that I had done, but the result is outstanding. I wish I did it when the gearbox was still serviceable!

I've got a R65 sat on my front lawn, could be tempted at that price. The only dilemma is will the Mrs be happier that the gearbox has moved from the lawn that she is annoyed that it has turned up in the lounge as a feature table.

Got the loom in today and connected to see if I could get the engine to turn over.....it only managed a single click of the starter.

Battery is good (12v), I have a 12v start command out of the ignition switch, through the fuse boards and sitting on the start relay, but it seems to go no further. Where does the crank Power earth? Is it through the crosstalk line between the alarm and engine

Is it possible to remove the immobiliser altogether? I assume that earthing the crank line and the crosstalk line will be sufficient to delete the immobiliser?

It is possible to lose the immobiliser, I had an ECU that had been flashed to do away with it, I now run Emerald which allows you to switch it on and off as you please.
