for those of you who are on here a lot, you have probably seen my carb thread. if not? ive got a 95 that is in cherry condition with only 50kilo's on it. got a/c & all. very sweet ride & good looking mini. but it has the usual carb issues & got swapped..... so while all this was going on i had no mini to use & we work the crap out of one here on the little hobby farm. caught a deal on a 2002 from a guy down in KY. we are gonna call this one Zuki. its got 70K on it & its been used by a lawn service. the body was much rougher & it was generally just in "ok" condition. no a/c, nothing fancy on this one... jsut a worker. what it did have was a awesome powerplant in it. needed a clutch/throw out & pressure plate & LOTS of TLC & cleaning & cleaning... then a dose of CLEANING! heater didnt work either. so going thru it & after lots of cleaning & then the clutch job (see other thread) tonite i turned to the heater issue. it was the same as most of the other mini's.. setting in a barn & a critter had made a home in the blower & heater core. finally got it all apart & cleaned out. found 11-- 22lr rounds in there, lots of shredded paper, ink pen lid, a couple of dimes. and all the damper controls were broke. but with some patience & effort? got the dampers set to split the air between floor & defrost & got the heat flapper working. since it has no A/C all ya gotta do is turn the fan on when you want heat. next it was checking the brakes. fronts were brand new looking, rears were non existent. got those on the way now too! it also has a new master cylinder & Power brake booster on it. so once the rears are on .. then i'll see what we really have for brakes. still gotta make a couple of gate latches for the rear & will get some pix up later in the week.
