Engine and Power Train Options



Morris Minor 'A' series engine1) STANDARD RECONDITIONED 1275CC ENGINE


This fits easily in place of the 1098cc Morris engine and the standard gearbox is all right if the car is not used as a ‘racer’. The ancillaries from the 1098cc engine are fitted to the new engine. The power output is not spectacular but gives drivers more flexibility to quickly pass other vehicles and offers a comfortable cruising speed on trunk roads and motorways – a welcome relief from being pushed onto the verge by trucks and buses!
The larger engine can be fitted without suspension improvements but it is advisable to improve the brakes, and a servo would be considered a minimum. Also, it is necessary to fit hardened half shafts to handle the additional power created by the engine.

Engine, supplied and fitted with modern modified rear crankshaft seal
Supply of donor unit for reconditioning 
Essential requirement – modern breather system 
Toughened half shafts – again essential 
1275 engine – supplied and fitted total £2,875 +VAT

NB: Toughened half shafts are again essential to handle the extra power output of the 1275 engine. All engines are supplied to run on lead free fuel - please note that leaded fuel can also be used in lead free engines and will not damage the engine in any way.




5 speed sierra gearbox for the Morris Minor2) GEARBOX OPTIONS


The gearbox conversion we have developed is a 5 speed one based on the Ford Sierra gearbox. This gearbox is very strong and durable with full synchromesh in all forward gears. Fifth gear pulls well behind a 1300 engine and is also suitable behind a standard 1098 engine, offering decreased engine revolutions at cruising speed, and therefore less engine stress and greater fuel economy. Kit includes bell-housing, gearbox and all necessary items. 
Supplied and fitted £1,875.00 + £60.00 surcharge on old unit +VAT (As an individual job)
