Hi, all. Never posted before, but need help in Spring/Houston area to tune my 64 S. Have tried everything - new needles, plugs, timing, etc etc. Starts, but then runs rough. Have lost track who may still be around to help. Last was Graham who did a great job on the car a few years ago now. Will arrange or pay for transportation. Thanks.

I wonder if you could contact Swiftune with the engine # and ask if they have details of the build.  Also, just wondered where your car came from.

Thanks,

Jim, Diana and Jimmy

Surprisingly, I got it right here in Wylie from Dallas Motorsports. They deal mostly with Porsches, but dabble in anything interesting they can make money on. They took this in on trade for one of their Porsches from a guy in Arkansas. It had a few Minis of the Ozarks stickers on the side window too. As far as where it was manufactured I'm not sure. It's a LHD car.

The guy who I bought my car from told me that a former owner had built up the engine but he had no details what so ever. Other than a header and Weber carb, I have no idea what else has been done to it.
Hopefully the people at Swiftune can help you out.

I second Jim's thought about contacting Swiftune.

The NGK BP6ES seems to be the popular choice for street Minis.

Hi Dan,

I am running BP5s in my street car and BP7s in the race Mini (1275S, 11:1 compression, Weber side draft) and that worked well.   NGKs get cooler as the number goes up.   

I'm guessing you're on the west side of McKinney, I'm on the east side outside the city limits.


Cheers,

Jim, Diana and Jimmy

My Mini has a Swiftune 1380 motor, but since I got it through a trade with a dealer I don't have any info about it's build. I looked around on Swiftune's website but it doesn't seem like there is a "standard" build motor, more of a built to your wants type deal. The block is stamped "Swiftune 1380 ST" with what I'm guessing is a serial number after that. Is there any info about these motors out there or am I at the "only way to really know is to take it apart" point.  Undecided

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

Yes, Lucas is not that far at all. We pass through there sometimes on our way to McKinney, trying to avoid 75.  Grin After quite a bit of diving in my Mini I realized it must have sat for a while. The tires looked nice but quickly started splitting so I replaced them with new A008s. The motor acceleration seems a bit flat, so I think I'm going to start with a compression test, ignition tune up, and carb fiddling. Most stuff looks a little aged, but the plugs seem new. They are B8ES NGKs, but I think 7's might be a better fit. We'll give everything a freshening up and see where it's at then.
