· . The following infoLlt1ation is issued in order to facilitate the choice of a suitable fin~l drive ratio and tyre for any particular application •

The table indicates the wheel revolutions per mile for various tyre sizes, fro~

this the veh.i.c Le speed per 1000 engine revolutions per minute can be calculated using the fo.rmul.a : '

- 60,000 J

M.P.H./1000 R.P.M. - or K.P.H. 1000 R.P.M •

where A ~ Final Drive Ratio :1

B a Wheel revolutions per mile

This f'o rrnu l a gives the speed in direct top gear only but the equivalent road speed in any intenl1ediategear can be calculated by dividing this by the gearbox

gear ratio. ·

9verhe~ting

Assuming that the cylinder head gasket is not leaking due to distortion ·and

. .

that the correct sparking plugs, ignition timing and mixture are being used, check

the running temperature wi th an accurately qr eduat.ed ga1.1ge. Note the boiling

points under pr e s sur e - 5 lb/sq.in. 226op, 7 lb/sq.in. 2~2oF, 13 Ib/sq .. in. 246°F and refer to the pressure on the cap. If excessive temperatures are ccnf.i rme d ,

'possible cause may be found amongst the following paragraphs, but overheating in traffic can often be prevented by opening the water valve and running the heater so that 'this acts as an extra radiator.

Examine bottom hose on 'A~ series engines in case heater outlet portion protrudes into the main bore. Cut off sU~llus with a sharp knife or replace if there is

any sign of f'Lak i.nq , T1:1e wat.e r pump should be checked to ensure clearance betwe~I

vane and body is no more than .020 to • 030in. (. 508 to • 762,%.) ...... The water pump intake bore should be as large as possible and the grinding of a slight taper into

• . j

the bore will also assist flow. Ensure fan belt tension is adequate. A larger

water pump 12G 1771 was fitted to the late Cooper'S' models and the 1275 GT, this may be fitted to earlier models after grinding away part of the block casting to

clear the pump rotor. . A new bottom hose 12A 1550. MUST be fitted at the same time_

. .

If existing t.hezmos t.at; is working correct16 1 it may be better to fit a colder

operating one, such as 13H 3727 (74°C, 165 F). When thermostat is removed altogether it is essential to blank thermostat bypass, using sleeve kit C-AJJ 4'012 On 'A r series engines, the bypass connection between head and water pump m,ay be sealed.

After continual use in dusty conditions, the radiator core may become partially blocked with leaves and insects. This can be cleared by compressed air or a jet of water used in the opposite direction to normal air flow.

-

Obstruction& to air flow, such as badges, extra lights and rally plates can: all

.cause overheating, and should obviously be reduced as much as possible. If a ·sump c;uar·d is fitted, i t is e s sent.La l to use a large capacity cooler, and

this is also desirable for competition or motorway use. On the Mini range use

a cooler such as that contained in kit C-AJJ 3309. Onthe,Clubman range use kit' C-AJJ 4030. Full details for oil cooler installations are shown on the M.G.B. Midget and Sprite parts micro film but a larger one is available part number

C-ARO 9875 for the M.G.B. and ARO 9809 can be fitted to the Midget and Sprite.

On the Mini Cooper '5' the radiator efficiency was improved by changing from 13 gills per inch (25.4%) to 16 gills per inch (25.4%). This may be checked 'by counting vertically the number of horizontal fins in a given height of the

radiator core. The latest Part No. ARA. 2064 MUST be used with the co.r.rec t; cap

ARA 2161 and improved top hose 12G 1164 on the'S' only. This same radiator and cap can also be used on the Mini Cooper, but top hose. 12G 104 must be used.

For very severe· conditions, an auxiliary radiator may be fitted to the Mini range using Kit C-AJJ 4011.

.

For the .Mini range, 6 bladed fan 2A 998, Stiffener 2A 803 are the most ~fficient

for cooling. Teh 11 bladed Plastic Fan 12G 1305 is quietest, but for racing

,

1,or 2 bladed Fan C-2A 997 may ,be used with stiffener 2A 803.

r:

The latest thermostat part NOS. are as follows:-

13H 3727 (74oC, 1650p), 13H 4070 (82oC, 180oF), 13H 4964 (88oC, 192oFJ~
