Mk1 Austin Mini 850 with a Cooper S inside

We have a beautifully restored mk1 Austin Mini on the rollers this morning. From the outside the car appears to be a standard 850cc model other than the wider rubber but on the inside the car is fitted with a 1330cc engine, twin SU carbs and Cooper S disc brakes. The engine has only recently been built so we are getting the carbs balanced and giving it a base setup for running in.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint and GT40 Replica on the rollers

A beautiful little Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint came down from London running rich with very poor fuel consumption. Graham re-jetted the twin 40 DCOE Weber carburetors to achieve a proper state of tune. Also on the rollers was this GT40 replica fitted with Rover V8 and four Weber IDF’s. Due to being sat for some time the carburetors required a strip down and clean before they could be setup on the dyno.
