1965 Mini Cooper S Twin Engine For Sale
Created by: Cincimini
Only advantage is it seems like something I can do and the rod change shifter would take a shift rod exiting straight out the back of the shifter housing and the two engines would all be linked together with one shifter fairly simply. More simply than 2 remote boxes, I think. And within a $500 budget limit. And then I could race a twini (preferably Trinity-- 3 engine) mini in Lemons. 848cc engines, that is.
Mike, what is the advantage or is this just to show technical prowress? Just curious.

I dont' know how it's done on the remote boxes, but someone smarter than I pointed out an idea that I'm using on my build:
On the rear transmission when using a rod change tranny, take out the reverse gear and reverse shaft and replace the 1/2" shifter rod that typically comes out the back with a length of 1/2" rod that goes straight forward and exits the front of the box. Tig weld another support collar on the front of the box and voila, you have a rod change that comes out of the front instead of the rear. You don't need reverse on both engines, anyway!
I'll post up my stuff as my build gets going in earnest (some time after XMas 2011)
I'd like to see how they ran the rear shift linkage...
