Dec 5, 2012 update to the Austin Mini Cooper S project car

Time for a Clutch

There's still nothing under the hood, and there won't be until the drivetrain is sorted.
Jere Dotten finds that we have all of the original clutch components.

With our engine coming together, it was time to find a clutch.

Our car came with a new, stock clutch and pressure plate. Though they were 30 years old, we decided this OE British Leyland equipment would work fine for our nearly-stock Mini. We bead-blasted and painted the bellhousing, then painted it silver before assembling everything.

It was an itsy bitsy, teeny-weeny rally-winning project Mini. Subscribe to Classic Motorsports and get them in your mailbox.
