Re: Miles per Gallon

In the last 18 months I've averaged 32.41mpg over 10k miles, all local stuff within 15 miles of home.

Re: Want a 1300 engine?

It is a company but he’s only really done work for people that he knows in recent years. I do know another chap in High Wycombe that does machining if that’s any good to you?

Re: Want a 1300 engine?

An old pal from my Mini racing days is doing the machining work that I haven’t got the facilities for. I’ll do the easy bit, bolting things together.

Re: Want a 1300 engine?

Well I'm having a 1216cc built, 1098 block overbored so you can use most of your current engine parts. It needs a bit of work on the head and the block to accept a 1300 read gasket, but certainly much cheaper than a 1300.

Re: rallying call 2021

Maybe this site would see more action if the email notifications worked? I was sent a PM yesterday, I only saw it by chance as I logged on in the evening to see if the dead had been awakened, but no, there were no new posts. But there was a notification top right telling me that a PM was awaiting me...
