Fixed or swinging needles?
Is everything else set up correctly Howard? (knowing you i am sure it is)
What springs and needles are you running now?
Stock rich for a Cooper S fixed was M.

I bought a cheapo hf drill bit sharpener.  It does ok in a pinch.  Can't get small bits to come out even enough to be useful.

Good luck, I was never successful with mine. I watched all their videos, talked to them on the phone endlessly and in the end they couldn't understand how I could not get it to work.

The biggest problem I had was getting the chisel point square to the flutes - it was always off, usually by quite a bit.

A pair of 15' ratchet straps held my shell to its "cart"/dolly just fine - wrapped around the shell and under the dolly.  I put old towels over the corners under the straps to minimize rubbing.

If you're going off roading with your cart, I'd suggest having a way to bolt or strap it to the cart.  It will try and slide off at the first sign of ground resistance otherwise.

I was planning to strap the shell down before going off-roading, run two or 3 around it and the cart. Also could run bolts thru any holes in the floor pan area.

Still waiting on the shell. Last time I asked 3 weeks back they said just finished and waiting to do the primer and seam sealer. Same thing they said 3 months back.
Getting the same almost done put off on the transmission. Good Grief.....

Shoulda sent that engine and tranny to me!   ;D 77.gif

Also, it might be worthwhile to ask them to skip the primer and seam sealer since what they use is essentially garbage.  At minimum I suggest sanding down the exterior primer and using a proper epoxy sealer primer.  It will provide both adhesion and water resistance above what will be on it.
