you did right to send it away! just because> if you mainly wanted the lump he could have spent half hour to make it run for you, i think it had hidden problems or shurely he would have!!

Been tidying up the alloys. Who ever had owned them before liked kerbs! Fortunately there isn't any serious damage and have cleaned up nicely. Jacked up the one rear wheel of Scorpion and put it on a axle stand. Then removed a wheel. My neighbour came over to see what I was up to. When I told him he thought I was mad as Mini's are front wheel drive! Fixed the alloy on and fired up the engine. Into first and gently bring up the clutch. Trimmed up the alloy with the grinder.





Going to send them to a local place for sand blasting and powder coating in gloss black.

Got the wheels back from shotblasting and powered coating. Very happy with them and the price of 64 for all four is amazing!





Also bought a new AP clutch. This is the type fitted to the L series diesel turbo so will hopefully take the power expected through it without issue.



I am sure this isn't the flywheel I was meant to get although is sold as a L series diesel flywheel. The thing weighs a ton! Looking like I need to swap this for the one with holes in the back for the crank sensor.





I needed loads of components like, cam cover, timing belt cover, coil packs, plastic cover over coils, HT leads, injector wiring loom and alternator, Saw this and paid 50 for the lot! It's a 1.4 but has everything I want on it. It's a good engine but I will put that back on eBay, and make back my money!



Got loads of other stuff like fuel pressure regulator and blank kit, fuel injectors, both turbo oil feed and return pipes, etc.

Getting close to actually starting the conversion now...

Thanks for all the good comments!

Chris, that would help if you can. This flywheel is just one of loads of stuff going to end up on ebay. If you can find out exactly what this is from so I can advertise it properly, that will help too. Cheers.

Blooming garage is brimming with spares again. If anyone reading needs anything, just PM me.

Next job is to get Scorpion over the pit and see how to get the engine out...

Are you going to need new wheel arches or will they fit under the current ones ?

I have bought some more arches although not because of the width as they are the same, more because the current ones are knackered Sportspack cheap plastic copies.

Ah ok, I just thought I remember TerryG saying at some point he had widened a set of Sportspack arches so I didn't think they were standard width
