Lower Stabilizer Kit, left hand side
Designed as an almost mandatory addition to any Mini with a rod change transmission, extra stabilizers will greatly aid any car. In stock form the control is left to the upper stabilizer. This often results in not only significant movement but even a cracking and breaking of the bracket that is welded to the bulkhead.
This kit fits on the left side and connects to the lower front gearbox case studs/bolts and goes rearward to bolt on the rear leg of the subframe, where one hole will be required.
The bushings used are the stock bushings as used in the stock upper stabilizer
Kits are made for both the right or left side of the tranny; either or both can be used.
(See MSSK which fits to the lower clutch casing/flywheel case studs and then goes rearward to bolt on the rear leg of the subframe, where one hole will be required. )

FITTING INSTRUCTIONS

MSSK1 - LEFT HAND LOWER ENGINE STABILISER KIT


This kit is designed to greatly improve engine stability on all Minis, and derivatives utilizing the engine and front subframe assembly from the Mini. It is particularly useful on the later rod - change type gearbox (post 1973 models). Easily determined as reverse is selected by lifting the gear lever rather than the earlier "slap-over" type.

It is located on the left hand side of the gearbox, mounting to the speedo-drive casing directly under the radiator, and passes backwards to connect to the left hand rear subframe leg.

Remove the three 1/2" nuts from the speedo drive casing as indicated in the drawing below, fit bracket as shown and replace the nuts.

The bar extends backwards to meet the subframe leg. With the bushes and tube fitted to the bar, press it against the subframe and mark the position through the centre of the tube. Move the bar out of the way and drill a 3/8" diameter hole where marked. Move bar back into position and secure with 3/8" bolt, washers, and nut provided. Ensure all nuts are tightened correctly.
