ANNOTATION:
The A-Series engine, first installed in the Austin A30, came to its own as the power plant for the Morris Minor.

All aspects of tuning are covered in detail, including filters, carburetion, intake manifolds, cylinder heads, exhaust systems, camshafts, valve trains, blocks, cranks, lubrication systems and pistons.
