Topic: Helping a friend with a Mini
Hi guys, I have a friend that is a bit crippled up who has a hobby car build to keep him busy/entertained. It's an ex-racecar '72 Mini. He has asked me to help him get it running. Problem is, he bought the shell with no engine. Since then, he has picked up a couple engines and gearboxes, but it's still missing a ton.
I know some of you guys dig minis. I'm wondering if you might be able to help me source some bits to help get his car going. Perhaps sell us some of your surplus. Offer product and vendor recommendations, etc.
I think we're going to need a good carburetor, distributor, and starter.

The "good" (1050cc???) engine:
