With the bolts removed, the end covers can be removed. On the flywheel side you will need to remove the O-ring, spring, ballbearing and detent sleeve. These can be cleaned and stored safely. The gaskets can also be removed at this point. If the differential housing proves difficult to remove, lightly tapping it with a mallet should help to ease it off. Taking care to support the casing, tap where the studs pass through the casing and not on the thinner walls. MBy flipping the gearbox casing...

You may recall giving us some goodies at the MiniWorld Action Day which we took to Mike and Rhonnie Guido in Florida. We made contact with them via the internet after seeing a picture of their Mini 51 T-Shirt featuring a Woody in MiniWorld. They live near Orlando and agreed to deliver the T-shirt during our stay. They picked us up on 21 November and took us to their home so that we could see their collection of Minis. Andy was then driven in Mike's Lil Turbo and Dee in Rising Sun,...

What's happening in the wonderful world of Mini Issigonis in the Elf Hornet-shaped beach car at the Cooper press launch in September 19E1 Beach Car discovered in Athens scrapyard In what must surely be one of the most significant Mini finds in recent years, a long-lost Issigonis Beach Car has been discovered in a scrapyard in Athens, Greece. John Reymondos spotted the car and was originally told that he would have to cut it up to buy it as it could only be sold as spares and should legally be...

When you how Iwiithed this mo gazin pis se rvcyd iL When you how Iwiithed this mo gazin pis se rvcyd iL I was impressed with how many of our hardy readers were still using their Minis in the snowy conditions the UK endured throughout December. Updates on our Facebook page of Minis looking lovely in the snow were a real treat. Of course, we all know that our lightweight Minis are great in icy conditions. In fact, Peter Barker is probably praying for more snow in France as he competes in the...

Panier Pour Chien

The idea was hatched in 2009 when the MiniWorid team came up with the plan of building a new project Mini as the basis for our Keeping Your Mini Alive spin-off mag. During discussions, the name 'Bogus' kept popping up as being our most exciting ever project Mini. Bogus was an integral part of the magazine right from the early days of MiniWorid. It was the magazine's first real project car and was put together by the original MiniWorid team. For me, the main thing about Bogus was its stunning...

Mini Sidewalk 1995

This is Penny, our 1995 Mini Sidewalk LE. My dad, Dave, and mum, Ange, bought her in August 2009 and we haven't stopped having fun with her yet I don't think we ever will. She recently took my sister Zoe to her Year 11 school prom. The Mini was the talking point of the evening and why wouldn't it be We have just fitted a new exhaust which sounds ace. Under the bonnet there is a 1275 engine. It is mostly original, except for some things like the dampers, spots and a few stickers. In the third...

Hat made Balazs Kotroczo's win even more impressive was the fact that he'd trekked half way across Europe to get to Longbridge, and had barely washed the car before it was judged. I simply couldn't believe it, he remembers. Me, the poor Hungarian, first time in England, in the cradle of the Mini, won the award I think on that day that every second of the hard work was worthwhile. Representing the 1970s cars in the Heritage run was just the icing on the cake for him. For Anglophile Balazs the...

Peter and Karen Wright would love to fill in some of the gaps in the early history of their 1967 Austin Cooper. They bought her from a garage in Millom, Cumbria in 1990. Originally white with a black roof, she had been painted blue. Peter was told it was a company colour as it was previously owned by a company called Tropimere in London, and was bought by them in 1975. According to the DVLA, the car has had numerous homes in Oxfordshire, Surrey, and Buckinghamshire. The Mini Cooper Register...

Two of the three went home with awards the LEJOG Novice Award was won by Duncan and John Mcleod, and the Gold Medal went to Kevin Haselden and David Kirkham. See www.heroevents.eu.
