Austin, MG, Morris, Triumph conversions and parts

MG Austin Healy Sprite; Austin; Morris Minor; Triumph Spitfire Conversions:

MANY Austin Healy Sprite; MG Midget; Austin, Triumph and Morris vehicles have been converted to the 1971-1982 Datsun A-series drivetrains (engine and transmission) or simply to the Datsun 60 series overdrive 5-speed transmision. The Datsun engines are very close in size to the British Leyland A-series engines and come in sizes from 1200cc to 1500cc.

The Datsun engines are much stronger 5-main bearing engines than the British Leyland engines. Parts between the Datsun A-series engines are very interchangable (with very few exceptions), and they are VERY easy to work on and reliable.

The Datsun A-series transmissions are very robust. The most popular is the 60 series 5-speed, an overdrive transmission that allows MG/Sprite owners with MG/Sprite engines to keep up with highway traffic. [Rivergate and other firms make a Datsun conversion kit for the MG Midget/Sprite. Information on the Rivergate kit for your MG/Sprite conversion to the Datsun 60 series transmission can be found at: http://www.rivergate5speed.com/about_kit.html ]  

Lately I have been stocking more used parts for these conversions as I purchase more complete Datsuns for parts. [My main interest is racing, but I hate to throw away good parts.] I now try to stock intake manifolds and carburators; exhaust manifolds; distributors and repair parts; and engine internal parts.

Contact me for details as my inventory changes weekly.
