The problem is that ,while driving, the car seems to be lacking power and judders, even pulling the choke out dosn't seem to make any difference it is like a fuel problem but has only happened since i replaced those parts .Any ideas welcome.

Also, did you move the dizzy whilst you were doing the points and/or cap? as if it's not in exactly the same position that it was, this will throw the timing out.

You can't just say don't use 3 in 1 for the dashpot, and you can't just say always use SU fluid. Depends on what carb it is (even 3 in 1 is to thick for the HD carb in most cases for example) and it depends on how the engine is tuned and what you want from it. Any serious Mini tuner would tell you that you can get very different results by changing the type of carb oil. The only thing they would all agree on is that most multigrade engine oils aren't up to it as Guesworks said.

Thanks every one for your help i have got a kit to refurb the carburetter so i will do that and then get it tuned.The carb is probably the same one that it left the factory with, 97,000miles ago so it has done well.
