The olive is the round end of the output shaft. That is, it is part of the machined shaft, not a separate part. You'll see it when you remove the front section of the drive shaft and notice that it...

One of the reasons I tried the Milestars is the Cooper name. I was not aware of all of the history you provided but some of it.

It has been awhile and I don't have a diagram handy but I think you can jump terminals 30 and 87 on the fuel pump relay (0280 230 001) to run the pumps whenever the key is on.

I can't help with the 123 question. However, setting up a set of DHLA 40-Ls on a modified 2L has been straightforward. I don't think tunability is a problem.

I have had some that last ten years and some that seem to barely last four or five. Could be due to the quality variation Ed referred to. Centerline is probably as good as any other supplier.

Is the problem lack of fuel or excess fuel when the engine is hot? On my Webers and the Dellortos, it is the latter. The throttle needs to be held open to clear fuel. It takes about three engine...

If you have any doubt, remove the plastic covers and the jet holders and see what you have. Very straight-forward but you may already know that.
