This looks like an early LH drive with an HS

As far as I can recall the throttle cable is on the RH side and the float chamber on the LH side from inside the car.... but I haven't had a HS on my car in a long time..

HS2. The white woody has a '73 RHD engine as it did not come with it's original engine and as the steering rack has failed, I should replace that one with the LHD rack that it came with as it originally was LHD and put a proper oriented carb on. Randy

On a LHD Mini, do the mechanisms on the carb face to the dr's side of the car or to the passenger's side? Randy
