Brrm Brrm, my tachometer arrived from China today, so I quickly wired it in so I can see how close to valve bouncing I am.
People have asked why I do what I do; buying broken cars and fixing them. It’s because despite all the blood, sweat and swears, it’s fun and nothing beats the satisfaction of that first drive.
Another big day working on the Mini today, but not everything went to plan.
Like all the cars I obtain, I don’t mess around, so today I tore into the brakes to replace the leaky cylinders.
So what do I really think of the Mini Cooper?
Whilst wrapping up the servicing work on the Mini the other week, I happened to catch a glimpse of something that bothered me.
Since getting the Mini, I have been using it a lot, but it needs a good servicing and to fix the coolant leak. I got around to doing it the past couple of days.
When working on the Mini yesterday one thing I noticed was that the coolant overflow bottle was full, despite the cooling system being empty. Clearly something wasn’t right there.
