Hello everyone from the US. Do to a strange sequence of event I am now the new owner of this 75 mini. It runs and drives but it definitely needs some love and care. So i figured joining a few forums would be a good place to start because i do not know much about these cars. the first thing i need to do is figure out what engine is in the car. i know it was swapped by a previous owner and the person that i acquired the car from believes its a 1275cc engine but he was not sure, i went to look at the plate on the engine but it is no longer there. also im wondering if these motors have a timing chain because the car makes a weird rattiling when you accelerate that seems to smooth out the higher you rev the engine.
any help would be much appreciated I am super excited to own this car and look forward to learn more about it. here are some pics. image1 (2).jpeg 140.69K 0 downloads image2 (2).jpeg 158.53K 0 downloads image3 (2).jpeg 136.79K 2 downloads image4.jpeg 136.17K 0 downloads image5.jpeg 154.55K 1 downloads image6.jpeg 125.74K 3 downloads image7.jpeg 131.91K 2 downloads image1.jpeg 124.7K 1 downloads image2.jpeg 110.87K 0 downloads
