I have not seen one myself, but Id say it is an internal float SU of the 1-1/2 inch variety, which would make it a HIF6 and with the water heated manifold, it's probably from a later Mini. Other have installed them, so they should be along to verify.

It is an HIF, could be either 38 or 44, 44 is also called 6. Usually a 38 on a 1098 engine as the 44 is too much, could be a 44 if you have a 1275 engine. I think you have to measure the throat to be sure.

Definitely a HIF. If it has 2 mount bolts it's a HIF38. If 4 bolts it's a HIF44. Two HS2 carbs have about the same throttle surface as 1) HIF44. Common conversion for Classic Mini's. I have the HIF44 conversion for my Morris when it gets the 1275.



If it was good 60 years ago, does that mean it can't be improved?

In looking ate the throttle cable hook up, you may not be getting full throttle.

Bernard,

First have someone push the throttle pedal to the floor. Then check that you have full throttle. If you don't, to get full throttle you will have to re position the anchor for the cable housing or change the arm where the cable connects to the carb. Here is a pic showing the crescent shaped throttle arm that will give you 90 degrees using the existing anchor. The throttle cable is routed through the slot in the crescent. This is a common arrangement for Classic Minis. Joe Curto may have the arm you need.

Here is my HS4 setup. works great. I did have a HS 6 on there but found that all around driving the HS4 was better even on my 1275. It'll still run 80mph no problem.
