The A-Series engine first became available in 1952 when installed in the Austin A30 but later came to prominence as the power plant for the Morris Minor. The engine was progressively developed, grabbing attention in 1959 for its performance potential when a revised version was launched in the Mini. Subsequently, considerable development took place, with significant increases in power, while the unit's flexibility made it an ideal and widely used engine for the tuner and motorsport enthusiast.
First published in 1985, this successful book has come to be regarded as the essential reference for A-Series engine tuners, and has now been extensively up-dated to include the latest developments in engine tuning technology.
David Vizard passes on first-hand information on how to build engines with a variety of power outputs such as a standard 53 bhp unit with 68 lb ft of torque prior to upgrading, which ended up producing 138 bhp and 112 lb ft - enough power to propel a standard weight Mini from 0 to 100 mph in 15 seconds and give it a top speed weil in excess of 120 mph!
With an easy-to-read text and approximately 750 illustrations including many specially prepared diagrams, this book will help the reader to get whatever he needs from his car's A-Series engine, whether it be greater horsepower or simply an improvement in fuel economy. Although featuring this popular engine in all its forms, from 803 to 1.275 ccm, much of the information and data will also be found to be of considerable use to those working on other, similar power plants.
