Introducing the Mini Mania "1275cc Powerunit" Engines For Sale

These rebuilt Classic Mini 1275cc engines are built with highway cruising in mind:
1- Special camshaft timing results in improved low RPM torque and throttle response.
2- Cylinder Head Valve sizes and porting specially selected for maximum torque at lowest possible RPM's.
3- The transmission has a wide ratio that allows for low speed performance while the final drive ratio of 3.2:1 will provide great freeway comfort.
4- All powerunits are also equipped with an 'overdrive' primary gear that results in a very effective final drive ratio of 3.1:1- the ultimate Cruiser Special!

The Highway Cruiser 1275cc Classic Mini Cooper Power Unit - Motor.

This is a rebuilt Classic Mini motor engine assembly from Mini Mania and is guaranteed for 12 months or 12,000 miles whichever comes first. Both the Mini Motor engine and transmission have been rebuilt with our vast experience to ensure the right combination of economy and performance; you get good performance at an economical price!

Build to use unleaded gas, the Classic Mini engine should produce between 65 and 75 horsepower (comparable to original Cooper "S"). The transmission is the rod change linkage type that uses inboard CV joints.(Special order units with the older remote shift and yoke outputs are also available!) Clutch, flywheel and all covers are in place so it's ready to run!  Just bolt it in and go.

This powerunit is built to accept your existing intake/exhaust, cooling and electrical systems.

Note: There is NO CHARGE for the core. However, if you're interested in saving a little money, call us and let's work out a trade in for  your old engine!
