Hi All

Havent been able to get onto the forum for ages, login issues etc.
Not much progress has been made on the conversion apart from mounting the motor properly into the front subframe and gathering a few items.
I may convert my mini scamp first to get all the testing and road development done first then either transfer into the marcos or do another conversion.

I have an instagram account electricclassicminis showcasing my project and all the other minis being converted across the globe.

If my previous post was not that clear, perhaps another option is for an owner of a lowered Jem or Marcos could measure from the lower subframe  bolt hole on the rear heel board to the tarmac. This would give me a fair chance . Same on the front, perhaps the rear mount. This is needed fairly quickly as I want to make a proper start this weekend now that the weather is a bit better.
Thanks again.
Ian

Hello All.
Having fitted a full cage to my Jem , I have a headroom issue.
Has anyone got a race Jem or lowered road car. What I need to know is how low can I put the floorpan. I have cut it out with a view to making up a frame work to support the seat.
Thanks
Ian

Re turning the throttle cable through 90 deg, you should be able to use a bell crank and adjustable linkage.
Something like this:

Although that particular one is a bit OTT the idea should be obvious.
Hope that helps.

So the inlet manifold fits - it's tight but it fits:

There are a couple of issues ot be addressed.
1. The Specialist Components stainless exhaust manifold has a different thickness flange than the inlet manifold (this was the same situation with the MPi inlet manifold) so I'll have to make a set of shims for this.
2. It's very difficult to access the inner branch studs for fitting the manifold nut too.  Also the MPi nuts (which have an in-built spreader washer doesn't seem to fit, so I'll have to find out the thread size and get some alternative nuts.
3.  The throttle cable on the SC set up exits the throttle body vertically, whereas on the MPi set up it exits horizontally.  This could be (will be) a problem with the bonnet in place.
Bent - did you see this throttle cable problem?  How did you address this?
