Got a new one again, couldn't resist and found a good one for sale in WA. Got some technical questions that I'll ask in that forum, but I thought I would introduce myself here. 

 

Used to have a 77 Mini 1000 Canada car. 

 

Got this one, which I believe is a: 
- 1991

- Japanese market car

- Factory AC

- I think it's a 998cc correct me if I'm wrong please

 

Taking care of a few things to get it back up and running like: 

- new clutch master

- new tire (one was flat)

- new alternator. This one was interesting because of the small belt that connects the AC unit and the alternator, which was hard to find

- looks like the cork valve cover gasket was never replaced, hard as a rock an I had to grind it away lol

- new battery

- coolant flush, brake fluid flush, etc

 

Excited to be back in the game!

Looks like a Japanese 998cc spec based on the front facing position of the Air Conditioning Condenser rad, the later 1275cc SPi have the Air Con rad fitted flush in the LH inner wing with a fan.

Underbonnet pictures of the engine/cylinder head would help to confirm.
