Dan - what are the intake air temps like? Once that engine bay heats up, I expect that the exposed air filter would be sucking in some rather hot air, unless you've put some kind of cool air feed to the filter?

I'm pretty sure his air filter is under the passenger guard and get's cool air that way.

Hey Dan!

GRN 850 is amazing! I'm pretty sure I've seen it down at MCCNSW mini's in the park (Lions spring fair, Gannons park Peakhurst september) a few times, I'll have to check my old photos. I've loved this car since I first saw it. Amazing, really amazing work. Its a shame it's now for sale, but these things happen. I'm sure you've enjoyed it in the past few years. The pictures look great but they just don't do it justice!

Regards,
Brad

Can anyone identify the source of the black overflow tank in this pic (back left of the engine bay)?

Australian assembled Mokes and the Morris 1100, among others, had one fitted as standard.

You can still buy new - https://minikingdomonline.com.au/produc ... k-and-cap/
