Next time you can't get it to shut off, stick it in 4th gear, let the clutch out with the brakes on......

 :-[ moment.   After googling choke issues on Hif44 I found a couple of videos and found out my choke was wrong.  Iíd locked the cable down to when the choke was fully disengaged the arrow was pointing at the fast idle screw.  Well thatís wrong.  So I unclamped it and let it go back fully and then clamped it.  Then followed the video on setting it.  So fingers crossed tomorrow when I start it the choke and idle act appropriately. 

Valves were really close but adjusted them a little.  New plugs and double checked gaps.  Timing still accurate.   Did all of this before messing with carb.  Will double check timing when start up tomorrow.   

Moved the back wheels to the front and still rattling over 50.   With or without throttle.  In or out of gear.  Still trying to get local mini owners to come over.   Guy in Burlson has some but thatís completely across the metro area.

Wish you were a bit closer, I'd be happy to loan you a set to try and sort this, but given how much trouble these have given you already I think I would just invest in a new set of wheels. Don't buy those with the sleeved lug nuts tho, get them with the tapered ones.....

I still have the set of Minator 10"x6" wheels/tires I posted earlier.  They are complete with tapered nuts and center caps.  I was considering posting them in the "Parts for Sale" section at $320 for the set.

He would need tires too, wouldn't he? I was just saying he just needs to borrow a set off a car and drive around a bit to see if that's his problem (I'm betting it is)

However, since I haven't heard the noise from in the car, I would make sure the backing plates on the rear brakes are tight, that the top nuts on the rear shocks are tight and so on.....

Itís the exact same noise from last time.  Itís very distinct.  I have a set Iíve picked out, almost identical to mine.  Just would really like to know before buying a set and then still have the issue.  Last post on classic mini of Texas got a little more traction.  See if anything comes of it.

The ones I have include the tires currently mounted.  They came off my panel Van, which has the 7.5" front disk brakes.  I had no noises or rubbing from them the few times I drove it with them on before changing to some narrower ones I already had.

The Van does not have flares and looks better with the narrower wheel/tire combo now on it, so the 10"x6" set is now extra.
