Hi there, i was hoping to get some help/advice from people here. I own a 64 Cooper (Aussie) 998 and like i am sure has happened to most here, either the sender or voltage stabilizer has had it. I've sent the sender off to a chap in SA who deals with classic gauges and he has advised that the sender i sent (and had in the car) was completely incorrect. I have found a few in the UK on eBay and also one on Mini Spares in SA, the code for the item is  XNB10007.  

 

Please can someone confirm whether this is or is not the correct part for the mini? Many thanks in advance.

Hi

 

I can only see this one (XNB10007) for carb - and the XNB100380 - which is for injection models unless anyone knows any different

ARA984 seems to be the original part number which has seems to been replaced by XNB10007.

Being of that vintage it's around the change over time from the early, non-stabalised gauge to the later stabalised type, though I think it's a later type, but I 'air' this so you can check first as this sounds like the miss-match you presently have.

 

Is there a Voltage Stabaliser on the back of the Speedo ?

 

If there is not, then that's not the right sender.

 

If there is, then happy days.

 

There's a few Gauge Companies much much closer to you who are very good with Smiths Gauges.

They also changed in 1964 from the bolt in type to the later twist/ lock ring type. Potentially you could have one of three types - you should definitely be able to tell the difference between the bolt in type and the later ones. I have heard some companies can modify them to suit any fuel gauge you have.

My Aussie 1964 is the earliest type and non stabilised gauge (silver face)

Thank you for all responses, seems that what i had found through research was also the same, XNB10007 is more likely the correct part. I have ordered one from Minisport and will report back. Oh and yes, i am running a voltage stabilizer so again, makes sense that this is all correct.

Strange,my '63 has the twist lock ring style and voltage stabiliser?
