RIGHT HEAD FOR A-SERIES

 

Mini Spares has just released a brand new five-port, alloy head for the classic Mini. The new C-AHT347 alloy head is based on the original Cooper ‘S’ 12G1805 version of the 12G940 casting with eleven studs.

Externally, the new alloy head is a replica of the Cooper ‘S’ 940 casting and is already gas flowed for performance in its standard form.

As most users dispense with the by-pass hose, the by-pass hose connector hole is not drilled.

C-AHT347 uses 35.6 x 29.3mm standard material valves, which costs £1231-9 inc VAT. However, most purchasers are expected to opt for 35.7 x 29.5mm race quality More >

THE POWER OF PROPER PAPER!

As a paid-up fan and user I was delighted to hear that Ordnance Survey’s (OS) iconic road map series OS Road have been relaunched after a seven-year hiatus. The eight map sheets, covering the whole of Great Britain, are back by popular demand and with a new twist that is aimed at helping tourists see even more of Britain.
