Definitely easier to remove the engine/gearbox on their own.  Assuming it's late enough to have inner cv joints rather than rubber couplings it's do-able in an hour or so if nothing's too stuck (although I suspect I've got quicker with practice so maytbe allow a bit more!).  The rubber couplings take a bit longer but can be undone with a spanner; it does help to have the special tool to do inner cv joints but not essential.  Similar with the gearchange; if it has the earlier 'remote' shift (snap across for reverse) it can be undone with a spanner; if the later rod-change (lift for reverse) it helps to have the correct size punch to knock the pin out.  Both the driveshaft couplings and gearchange changed part way through mark 3 production.

All that's wrong with the suspension is that bodged schrader valve which I plan to replace for you with one of my spares and I'll also top it up so the car is sitting level.  As far as I can tell, the rest of the system is in rude health so it shouldn't cause you issues.  Even just riding around the potholed yard the suspension feels pretty healthy and smooth, like these should.

Awesome but at the same time disappointing as it's one less thing I need to fiddle with/fix!

Googling around it does seem that Minis that have sat around can suffer from stuck clutches. Including this person's Mini that has a very familiar user name ;)

I don't HAVE to fix it ;)  I just thought it'd be one less thing to worry about since I've got all the gear here to sort it in about ten minutes and you then don't need to stress about trying to find someone with a pump, etc.

Nah I think it makes complete sense for you to if you could. Saves me having to bodge a grease pump and a lot of swearing.

So as there's no drivers floor at the moment, I got to the workshop a few days ago and there was a cat sunning itself inside on the parcel shelf and purring quite contently.

 

I filled in the gap to stop it happening again and the feline intruder did no damage, but I was amused by it.

 

I might've said "You've got to be kitten me!" out loud when I saw it. To no one except me. Then I laughed at my own pun.

No doubt my cat will attempt the same. She seems to like to sit on the most awkward of places. Like ...

...on top of a set of precarious boxes

...in a tiny space behind a light.
b1a9c135f06e9c7e034b5b4c63a493ab.jpg

...under the bed.
20171223_113118.jpeg

...or even directly on top of a tea towel when it fell off the washing pile.
aef97da3e08fd0d98725ee587bcc5664.jpg

So no doubt it'll be a new thing to explore. I need to figure out actually how I will let her in and out of the house when I start welding. The cat flap is directly where I will be working.

What's the deal with the MK2 and MK3 front brakes? There seems to be complete brand new calipers, seals and pistons readily available for the MK1 but virtually nothing for the MK2 and MK3. I see the MK2 and MK3 is a different design, is if completely unique for the ADO16?

The clutch plate will be sticking on the primary gear splines. A Mini 1100 clutch kit used to be just the plate. The release bearing a diaphragm go again and again.

Mark 2 and 3 cars had sliding calipers and not the fixed twin piston ones of the older car.

My work can rebuild them. By the sound of it, they're a similar design to the Allegro, if they share pistons then they are unobtanium. Fortunately, we've got about 20 new old stock LH Allegro calipers we've been robbing pistons from to complete customers' jobs.

Really useful to know. If the piston is damaged, it can be either cleaned up on a lathe or remanufactured from bar stock on a lathe?


The clutch plate will be sticking on the primary gear splines. A Mini 1100 clutch kit used to be just the plate. The release bearing a diaphragm go again and again.


I guess I need to double check the clutch hydraulics are doing what they're supposed to do first. If they are fine, how would you recommend going about releasing it otherwise? Iirc Vulgalour has tried different tricks to try freeing it while still on the car to no avail.

Are they sliding? I had it in my head they were swinging.

Looked it up, they are swinging, hence the wedge-shaped pads.

As above, Mk 2 & 3 used swinging calipers and wedge shaped pads, completely different to Allegro and unique (as far as I know) to the ado16.  Nothing to stop you fitting a  complete mk1 set-uo, including the smaller discs, but the mk2/3 set up works much better if in good condition (despite only one piston).

I don't believe there's anything wrong with the front brakes, they stop the car pretty well.  The rears likely need adjusting as the handbrake is quite weak, but otherwise the brakes seem to be in good order.
