    One Carb Or Two?

After more than two weeks with the Mini down, I received my order on Friday. So I found time Sunday morning to change the fuel pump. I got it done by removing the carburetor to gain access to the nuts. Everything worked, I even did about 30km that day. I had to do the usual adjustments on the carb after.

 

The pump is the non-genuine one. On pictures I thought the plastic on the end was to protect the arm during handling but no, is it the contact surface with the cam...I'm not sure how I feel about that.

 

The KAD quickshift feels really nice!

I did a 2 hours drive yesterday! Having time for myself is a rare thing so I went for a long drive. The clutch is still slipping but if I'm careful with the throttle it's good.

I also have a new bonnet hook so I'm not worried about it flying off

Thanks Timmy850 for the idea, I painted the exhaust clamp so it's less apparent

Even less apparent if you swing it round so the nuts are at the top. 

Bit more of a faff to tighten/loosen, but how often do you do that?
