Your 79 had origianlly had diagonal spit master and bulkhead block. 

If you want to keep this, you should have GMC167

Have a good think about how to plumb in a later 80-89 front / rear split to the bulkhead block. I should work though. :-)

Thanks for the heads-up! But I understood that my Mini was built in Belgium and these Mini's already had the front-rear split circuit. Check below picture:

It has been a while since the last update. I have been sick and had to regain energy to start working on the Mini again... Today I finally found some time and energy... Also last week I finally received my parcel from Bilt Hamber containing a bottle of Electrox and some Epoxy Mastic, so I could finish off the front hub and steering arm;

After the Deox-C bath I used the Dremel to remove the last bit of junk from the hub and the steering arm and this is how they looked;

After the first layer of Electrox;

Then I started working on the steering rack. It had to come out to replace it, but I discovered I barely had enough space to take it out;

When lowering the subframe for the steering rack to come out, one of the rubbers broke. No problem, I was going to replace them anyway;
