I'm a total beginner to classic minis. I would like to learn about basic parts of a classic mini. Could you help me by directing me to a resource video/web etc?

 

Thank you

There are also many books, dvd's, youtube videos available on every aspect of the classic Mini including its design, history, maintenance, tuning and restoration if you search the internet and this forum.

As above also there's never a silly question, so ask as many as you need

I was new in September and literally had 0 knowledge
This forum has pretty much made me believe Im a mechanical god...
If in doubt go on google and search the problem youre having followed by mini forum and you will almost definitely find a post from here from about 10 years ago with the same problem and solution from the mini gurus that roam this site
