Re: 'Ians Hot Maxi/Mini' - He doesn't say it but back in the 1980/90's it was quite common to rob scrapyard Hillman Hunter's (and other Rootes Arrow derivatives) of their remote servos for use in Mini's as they were plentiful and cheap. I don't recall any noticable drop or increase in performance and think only the only physical difference is the air valve piston diameter. Only trouble is, if someone goes to rebuild it later and is unaware a different overhaul kit is needed... (SSB 1061 I think)
