As always thanks in advance for the replies! I am planning on bringing my 1996 Rover Mini SPI to Kilbroney Vintage Show 2019, in Northern Ireland (Im based in the Republic). Generally speaking the car runs grand but very occassionally it gets the slight hesistation after starting up and clutching in (I've read sprockets guide and still figuring out the issue I think it could be the MAP sensor)
It's about 130km up and the same back, so I will be doing a good bit of distance compared to my usual sunday driving. I was hoping to get some suggestions as to any bits or bobs I should change prior to the journey.
In the last year I have purchased a new altenator, battery, spark plugs / performance HT leads, fuel trap intake, Stage 1 Kit from Maniflow.
I did a complete overhaul of the suspension which included new doughnuts all round, hi lows, kyb adjustable shocks, camber plates, adjustable tie rods, negative bottom arms, tear drops and polybush tie rod bushes / bottom arm bushes. In addition to this I switched to 10" wheels and ended up switching to the 7.5" cooper s brake setup on the front (drums on back).
When I bought the car it still had most of its original parts and I doubt very much has been changed. As such, I understand that if it ain't broke don' fix it, but I'm doing this as more of a ''pre-emptive strike".
Is there any parts / suggestions or tips on things I should periodically replace / check etc ? I'm a novice but I'm learning as I go along so any help would be greatly appreciated. Changing the fuel / oil filter myself next week and sticking on a decat pipe is my next plan.
