OK so I have access to 3 x Mini Metros. One in a barn and the other two have bee sat in a field for 10 - 20 years
Two are 1275s and one had a A+ 998 fitted just before it was laid up.
I have posted on here before saying that I was planning this scheme of salvaging some parts (mainly the engines) and today I finally made a start.
I will be stripping out as much as can be salvaged as possible, cleaning them up and selling them on to fund some much needed front end work on my Mini (Subframe / Brakes / Engine).
First up I have removed two of the carbs (sadly one of the HIF44's has been removed already), I think one is a HIF 38 (That came of the 998) and the other is a 44 (That I pulled from the 1275) but I found this thread that should help.
1. What would be the best method of cleaning these up. What tools, drill attachments?
2. Should I fully refurbish them using a service kit before selling them or just clean them up?
3. What's the going rate for a HIF 38 and HIF 44?
TVM for any info
