The Mini Spares team are the experts when it comes to sourcing hard-to-find parts for the classic Mini. However, if they can’t source a part that’s up to their high standards they will not compromise on quality and so will opt to make their own version.

A case in point is the latest Mini Spares Engine Front Plate for A Plus engines that use a timing chain tensioner.

The main bearing cap screw holes are countersunk to allow flat-faced screws to be used in place of bolts, thus providing the extra clearance required when using a duplex chain.
(Screws are available as AEA687 or CMZ407)

The plate can be ordered as part number 12G2626 and retails at £29.70 inc VAT.
