Aha   ta

Is Beast 1 no more like?

 sad32: sad32: sad32:

There was a 'son of Beast two' too at one point. cloud9:

Absolutely gutted when I sold them.
One now in Scotland,(black) the other on Dartmoor (red)

Immense fun and hugely enjoyable off road...apart from the cocky knob heads i had to mix with when green laning.

The business venture was actually quite successful, only the arse hole land owners bolloxed it all up for me with their never ending quotes form the E.A. and DEFRA handbooks regarding such excitement as 'stagnant water' and 'bare roots', not forgetting the ban on me advertsing due to lack of planning permission. Banghead

Oh, and let's not forget the obscene P.L. insurance quotes too! Angry9:

Come over here and do it ........ :thumbsup:

Summer job?! rubschin:

Used to be hot enough doing it over here sitting next to kids that wanted to kill the car, (and us)  and sometimes adults too.
Very stressful, but immensly rewarding.

Does the gearbox share the engine oil...?

You can only use 20/50 Mineral Oil in a Mini because thinner oil or synthetic can fuck the gearbox right up apparently...  scared2:

If it was me, I'd put 20/50 Mineral in it anyway - wot it was designed for like...  Thumbs:

Ey, another one for you BM.
MoMo is dripping oil on the path, and Mrs G is actually not overly impressed  whistle:

I crawled underneath it last night, and in my estimation i consider it's leaking from simply the sump drain plug. rubschin:
Are the sump washers readily availble for the 'A' series in your experience, 'cus i suspect that's the problem? rubschin:
