This has been very educational and I thank Charles for all the time and work that went into this project. Also for guiding me though the conversion.

These brackets look simple enough. 2D from flat plate.Cad isn't too difficult to learn and you can get LibreCAD or FreeCAD and draw these with a little experience. Then modifying them will be easy. AutoCAD is a great program but way too expensive for common use. There are more free or user priced CAD programs out there depending on what platform you use, Linux, Apple, or Other. Thanks for the share.Bob - 1971 MGB-GT

Bob,Thanks, I'll look into that. It's frustrating trying to find someone who is willing to help, even if I pay them.

Not looking for payment. If I can help my email is bobharper (at) bigpond.comI am interested in the mod and would consider doing the same to my 1971 MGB-GT. It was a US delivered car that has been converted to RHD for Aus by changing US parts to Aus parts.I also have Lathe and Milling machine, but old eyes.

Details received. I'll see what I can do this week. It loaded up into LibreCAD without any issue, so editing shouldn't be an issue. I'll see if a friend can advise if I need anything special for a water cutter pattern, or flame cutter etc. Holes may be best drilled for precision.CNC cut is also an option.

Bob,I misplaced your e-mail. I finally got a chance to trace out the bracket and add in the radius values for the bolt holes without all of the other clutter. Please send me an e-mail and I'll send the tracing.

What do you call they tensioners they fitted toA-Series engines from day one please Charles?
2017-11-26 12:35:33 # 46351
Comment by charles durning
Mike,The original was 2 O-rings on the cam sprocket. It was not very effective.

Comment by Gene Johnson
Great job! I was expecting a need to use a different, A+, front plate.Couple of questions:1) How did you address the fan/breather interference? (I trimmed the breather ant an angle and welded on a patch) I'm looking for a better solution for my new A+ cover.2) It appears you used a simplex chain; I want to use a duplex and vernier cam sprocket. I've read of various other fit conflicts. Do you envision any?

Comment by charles durning
Gene,It is a simplex chain. There is an issue with the duplex chain touching the A+ cover. I have read that the cover can be modified with a BFH for clearance. For details on the duplex chain, I would contact the Mini guys. The breather on my cover is oval shaped so there is no issue with fan clearance.

What do you call what we call O-Rings please Charles. Our O-Rings have a circular cross section to the rubber.

Comment by charles durning
Mike,Look at Item 69. Those are called tensioner ring. Those rings were eliminated in the A+ engine

Comment by Mike D
I'm hoping to learn what you call what we call O-rings Charles.Our A series tensioners are nothing like what we call O-Rings.

Comment by charles durning
Mike,I see the link did not work. Go to Moss Europe a d bring up the internal parts for a 1098 engine. In that illustration there are 2 rubber rings (#69) next to the cam sprocket. Those are rubber O-rings that ass tension to the timing chain.
