So my friend has a 90's mini but has just brought a engine from a 83 mini which has the older style starter

Whats involved in using the newer wiring with old starter?

Thanks in advance...

Would imagine the 83 is pre verto.

Time it takes to swap the clutch over while they’re both out you’d be better off doing that and keep the 90s pre engaged stuff and the nice verto clutch.

If you mean inertia to pre-engaged starter then I believe you should change the flywheel ring gear too no? Makes it a bit more effot than its worth. To wire it is easy. The solenoid is just separate on older types.

Pretty sure he just means plonking the engine in as is and just changing the wiring over to inertia.

My opinion it would be quicker and better to just swap the lot over from the engine that’s coming out.

Just mount a solenoid close to the starter motor . Join the existing wireing loom to the solenoid and a large cable from the solenoid to the inertia starter.
