    Sure their are more engines readily available. But how much taller is the engine than a micra k11.

    HIF44. Twins for show really. I've had both. HIF44 will make almost the same power but will cost half as much.

Does anyone know what the colour code for Blaze orange and were I can get hold of some.

    Blaze = BLVC16
    Have you specifically chosen this colour to paint your Mini as it's an early 70's colour.
    In 1980 you would have had Vermillion BLVC118
    Supposedly a red but looks orange on the car.

I have an automatic front subframe, and want to fit a manual engine, I could purchase the subframe mounts needed to allow a Manuel engine to be fitted, has anyone done this and if so what's it like, any advise would be appreciated.

I am thinking about changing my front drums on my 1984 Mayfair to cooper s 7.5 brakes, can I use my original hubs or do I need to change them also.
