It shouldn´t be a problem. When you already reached last undersize on the 
crankshaft, there are still complete 948cc engines available as they were 
used in Morris Minors as well. Best to have a look at Beaulieu autojumble 
(just this weekend or the big one in September) or the Morris Minor Owners 
Club in England. There is also a baby Auustin Club in the UK to ask. Or you 
can ask at www.spridgets.net <http://www.spridgets.net> .
For a rebuild I can recommend Limora, as  there is a very good engine 
rebuilder, knowing these engines very well.

The Austin A35 from my stepdaughter is powered by a BMC a-series engine, 
which is the same as in Sprites and Midgets. During a classic car event the 
engine started to get noisy. So we shut it off and had it transported to 
the workshop of a friend of mine.


Still before the engine was opened he meant that it sounded as one of the 
bearings on the crankshaft might have failed. And he told me that for the 
948 cc engine new crankshafts are not available.


Is that true? If not, where can I get one?


Thank you in advance,
