Happy New Year All (if it's not too late to say this!).  Anyway, hopefully here's to progressing in 2023!

I haven't posted on here for a while, and have a bit of a rhetorical question.
I've done a little bit of work on the MM including fitting a second fan, but after Christmas I printed off the paperwork to resubmit for another IVA - I'll not be submitting this for a couple of months, but looking up the previous submission I realise this was done back in 2018!
Now I think I might still have an issue with emissions - running the car up to warm it through, the exhaust pipe tip is still very dirty afterwards suggesting to me that the mixture is still too rich.
Since having the car mapped I've changed the lambda sensor, plugs etc.  Don't know if any of this has changed things.

Now the thought I have is I intend to submit the car as is, expecting one of the items to be picked up to be the emissions.  But doing this will give me a list of items to address.
But looking back over my engine build, one of the things that needs to be considered is my fitting of 1.5 roller rockers along with a cam - the extra lift given does seem to adversely affect the emissions by conventional thinking.
But if the car does fail emissions, do we think it'll be best to revert to standard (around 1.3) rockers before getting the car remapped, and accept a little less power?

I would ask the same question of RS Tuning of course, but thought I'd start the discussion on here, to get peoples thoughts.
Also - can't remember if its possible to change the rockers without the need to change the head gasket (the rocker arm retaining bolts I think, are also head retaining bolts)?

Cheers All.

Hi All

I am the new owner of the Mini Marcos project and it has now been safely collected and transferred to my lock-up. I have another project on the go at the moment and serious work will start on the Mini Marcos once this is completed. In the meantime I will be keeping my eye open for the necessary parts I will need.
Once work starts I'll start an new thread to update on progress.

Mike

My car is a MK2 with MK3 style arches. I would be surprised if it was used as the buck for the MK3 moulds.

Hi Maxos
Regarding the MK 3 Jem are you quite sure Malcolm fell made it, i know all his cars where identified with MRMSFx xxx but on the gallery page there are a few that are not his who made those? was it High performance mouldings  in Wombwell Barnsley if so could anyone tell you HPM chassis numbers and how many they made. Mike the ex rally car you have was this made before or after he decided to close down.

It's not too late - tickets are still available for the Le Mans Classic event, with prices starting from £57 (GB pounds) to cover admission on all four days.  Thursday 29 June - Sunday 1 July 2023.

That is just £14.25 per day to gain access to the world's largest classic car meeting/classic car race meeting

Details are in the "Autumn" edition of our club magazine, but if you are not already in the owners club (why would you not be?) simply contact me via e-mail for further details on Roger@minimarcos.plus.com

Absolute Steal.

Best of luck to the new owner.




It's going to a worthy owner who will actually do it, after 49 years, and I'd priced it for that reason... I wish the new owner luck too... it takes the right kind of person  to see a car project/build through from start to finish...
