Engine in the mini is a metro turbo. I’ve put on a stabiliser (top righthand side) but the intake chamber is touching the bulk head.. do I need a longer fixed one? or do I need an adjustable one?

Im guessing the stabiliser I have is standard..


The fan has the smooth side facing the engine doesn’t it? But when I try That way it hits the breather.
Does it need a spacer between the pulley face and the fan?if so can I get longer bolts?

Ideally you need a 1990 onwards front subframe. You could try adjustable steadies

The fan will be marked engine side...

Yes you can use an extra spacer and longer bolts - or flatten the breather can.
