Did the Wolseley 1100 have the same engine spec' as the MG ?, ie. 12G295 and twin SU's ?.

Think it may have been a single carb...

I'm sure my '67 Wolseley I owned in the early '90s had a single HS4 carb, but I maybe mistaken as the Wolseley did not have the Cooper type air cleaner.

But if you look at the brochures on this link it shows twin carbs

Thanks. The photos I've seen do show twin carbs but with a central cylindrical filter box, not like the cooper so at a quick glance you might think it to be a single carb.

Robin,

The Wolseley 1100 was first produced in September 1965 and had the identical engine and gearbox as the MG / Riley Kestrel and Vanden Plas 1100 with twin carburettor application. The 1098cc Wolseley engine had the 12G295 cylinder head and high compression pistons and AEA630 camshaft that can be identified by two rings near to the large bearing journal end of the shaft. This is the same camshaft as the 998 Mini Cooper. This block is identical to the Mini 998 engine, just a change of crankshaft and pistons. The very early MG 1100 engine of 1962 had a cross-drilled crankshaft and used the 997 Cooper camshaft which has one ring and is a fantastic cam. This early MG 1100 engine had the 12G206 cylinder head which had retained the standard inlet valve size, however it benefited from improved porting and inlet manifold locating rings for the twin carburettors.

Hope this is helpful.

Alan

Thanks Alan,
I was looking at a nice original Mk1 Wolseley but it was too high an asking price for me unfortunately
