Hi
Took off valve actuator motor tested on bench all ok checked springs etc all OK. I'm waiting for our local independent mini specialist to come out this coming week and hopefully use their bmw software on it to see what that throws up if anything.

Good job it's only a project car and no one is relying on it.

Regards

True I retired last October and this car was my sons partners car she never looked after it and paid the price she always wanted a four door car bought one (not a mini thankfully) and was going to scrap the mini so I put it in my garage and started dabbling with it December 18. Enjoyed dabbling but disappointed re the no fire but there you go. I'll let you know the progress if any. If not ill scrap it.

Thanks for your interest.

Regards

Thanks for advice and the link. I'll try my local mini man first as I think the cost of both packages is just a little less than Nick ( mini specialist) is charging me for calling to see me and letting me have two hours of his expertise.

Hopefully I'll move forward from there. Wished you lived near me you could call and take a look for yourself and have a chat and coffee😉

Regards
Kevin

only difference is you would have that diagnostics to use as many times as you need to in future when he's two hours lol
