i would like a full parts list for each car, cooper, vans, clubbies, k's including part numbers so its easier to place orders. I realsie this list could be rather large, so maybe adding them to the bottom of each how-to

PS, i just did all the front control arms etc, so i have heaps of pics. also a can explain a handy way to do it without a cone compressor. so im up for putting my two cents worth in.

drexxle all the parts numbers are in the mini king book with all the differant models, not sure if thats what you are after

Lots of people been asking about bearings, etc, so we might as well do a basic maintainence guide. These are great skills that help us maintain our cars, and it beats paying a mechanic to do these simple jobs.

I am soon (probably 2-3 weeks) going to be installing a thermo fan into a mates mini for low speed cooling. I will be doing soldering, heat shrink, wiring a relay & switches, working out current draw to pick fuses etc. Does anyone want to know how to do this?

Ok Matt, just for you :) Do you still have your thermo fan wired directly to the ignition circuit?

Matt, please find my write up in the how to forum or click this link. Hope this helps you out.

Everyone, also please note - it contains the easy "MiniMan" way to get your radiator in and out.

I got the adjustable switch off of eBay. I am currently in talks with the seller as it is really only adjustable up to 70°C, not the 120°C as indicated in the ad. I have subsequently bought a Davies Craig one from Supercrap and plan to fit that. It is of a more open design so I have also bent up a splash guard to stop water getting into it.
