Mr Ed gets more horses..
Last week Elaine tried to take Edward out to the AMOC (Ashford Mini Owners Club) meeting, but we only got a couple of miles before aborting the mission due to evil clutch slippage :-(
We tried adjusting the return stop with little effect, so resigned ourselves to a clutch swap.
Now, seeing as without a flip front, a clutch change is virtually an engine out job, we could always just drop the spare 1380 from Doris for now...
Of course Ed would have to force himself to put up with an extra 50 or so cc, stage3 head, 1.5 roller rockers, x-pin diff, centre oil pickup and straight cut drops, but we thought he would probably be able to manage ;-)
Elaine cheerily undoing horrid, greasy, grubby things like gear linkages and CV boots.
Edward getting lighter and lighter as bits come off.
Until there was a nice clean shiny gap.
Dorisses old 1380 on the way to its new home.
The first start up on just the LCB was a bit loud, especially the backfire, so a bike exhaust made a handy temporary silencer.
After about 8 hours work the only thing left to fit was the grill :-)
Sundry other pics of Ed looking shiny during the surgery.
