Looks great , I'm just doing an engine swap and general refurb on my clubman estate and think your wheels would look good on it , can you buy them new anywhere?

Hi,

Its a Metro 1275, bored +20

Fitted with Nural Slipper Pistons, each of which was lightened to match the lightest in the set, they're mounted on lightened and balanced A+ Rods

Crank is ground 10/10 again lightened and balanced, its got a Mini Spares Evolution001 cam, and Special Tuning Lightened cam followers, using competition push rods. ARP rod bolts.

The head is a CNC machined head based of a later new casting, with 31mm exhaust valves and 35.6mm inlets, double valve springs, race valves and viton oil seals and steel top caps.

Its got forged 1.5 ratio rockers, heavy duty (thick walled) rocker shaft and solid spacers.

Compression ratio is around 10:1 from memory, possibly 10.5:1

Gearbox is a standard box, with a 3.1:1 FD ratio, and a Cross pin diff and central oil pickup. Ultralight backplate, Lightened flywheel and a AP Organic clutch plate, braided hoses etc.

Its got a Lucas 64DM4 electronic distributor with modified bob weights, and an HIF44, single 1" 3/4 carb.

I have no pictures of the engine bay, as I'm busy driving it but, here's one that Matt Woods Photography took :-)

EDIT: I should probably note, its getting supercharged over winter, so the HIF will go and be replaced by a DCOE weber :-)
