My Co driver and I have had a quite heated argument. Please help settle it. He wants to start stripping the cylinder head off the engine and service it. I say we should get the car running and MOT'd first, then do it if we have time. We have 8 weekends left before we set off on the mongol rally, two of which I can't work on the car.

    How much experience of Minis do you each have?.

    From 50 years of 'playing' with Minis, the only reason to take the head off an engine that is going OK, would be to check the size of the exhaust valve, and carry a spare.

    I admire your choice of car. I'd have picked a 4X4 Panda.

    I've had a mini since I was 16 and currently own two. I know some of the history of the engine as the car used to be my daily drive when I was 17. The engine ran when removed.

    The rally organisers said no 4wd this year. I think they were fed up of people using suzuki jimnys and panda 4x4
