Mike,The original was 2 O-rings on the cam sprocket. It was not very effective.

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?

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.

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

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.

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.
