If using these on 10" wheels with Hilos you may have to cut 3/4" off the end of the centre threaded bolt of the old type Hilo with a circlip as it will bottom out on the cone spring face and the car will sit high, for extremely lowered cars the hilo face will also need machining a few mm.
I'm not entirely sure what the centre threaded bolt is? Can anyone show me exactly what this means perhaps with a diagram?

Did you fit hilos for adjustable ride height? To be honest, if you've bought the hilos fairly recently I doubt they'd be the old type.

Thinking it sounds like they need taking out and turning down about 10 or 12mm
The leverage is 3:1
You can take material off both the seat part and at the ball end

Good to see you got the hilo problem resolved. So the new genuine hilo you bought from minispares had the circlip? In their description, I thought the circlip was an older type that has been superseded. I'll take note as I have some to fit to mine with 10s but its all boxed up waiting to be fitted.

CCK historic should be able to get your suspension set up. They are used to working on classic minis and many other classic cars and arent too far from Tunbridge wells also have a rolling road for getting carbs etc sorted and setup:
I cant say I have used them but I was looking to take my car there to get setup once its on the road

Don't know if it's relevent, but the suspension can take a fair while to settle after you've fitted new parts. Wait until you've driven it for a bit before attempting a final setup. The factory figure is about 1 degree of positive camper.
Oil pressure might be down to the relief valve sticking.
