Hello - thanks for all the help i've gotten in this forum.
My mini ('65 countryman, 850 original engine) makes a sort of whining / grinding sound when i start it - not always, but sometimes. It usually stops when the car turns over, but not always. i could swear i smell the smell of metal on metal grinding in the air too. It happens more often when the car hasn't been started in the cold for a bit.
Here is a video of the issue. any help is appreciated!
