I was clearing out the loft space above my workshop when I found an large old box with a load of carburettor parts in it. It's been there for about 14 years I reckon and I had completely forgotten about it.
On opening it up I found:
A pair of HS2 carbs on a Mini manifold complete with heat shield and linkages, just need stripping, cleaning & polishing.
A good pair of HS4 carbs with a manifold, just in need of cleaning & checking over, but all complete (they will do nicely for my newly acquired 1990 Cooper 1275).
Three HS6 carbs that just need stripping and cleaning (all the same hand so not suitable as twins, but would make a good up-grade for a car with an HS4, especially if gas-flowed.
An HS4 in good condition, just needs cleaning and polishing.
But, maybe best of all, a matched pair of H4's on a manifold which is a better one than the BMC one. They need float chambers, linkages and a re-build, but matched H4's are very hard to find and are required for some race applications (pre-1967 FIA). I have twin H4's on my 1964 historic rally 'S'.
So It's been a good day all told!
However, I also found some brake calipers and I thought I had found a pair for 7.5" discs. One is, but the other is from a Rover 214. Never mind.
