So it was less a restoration more a putting the old mini badge on a collection of stuff off eBay


Still surprised it broke

Me too - the old distributor was shagged out so I bought a new electronic one instead of a new mechanical one (I hate setting points)...

Jeez what a faff that used to be.  And then you had to reset the timing in case you didn't get exactly the same gap as before. 

And then there was setting the carburetor with a Colourtune.
Well, whatever nevermind

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
