12g940 means it's a 1275 head. There are differences between A+ 12g940 and A series 12g940. Here's an extract from the retro minis UK site

12G940                   1.401/35.6           1.15/29.2                  21.4                          Stamped 12G1805 behind thermostat - MG1300, Austin 1300GT & Mk3 Cooper S
12G940                   1.401/35.6           1.15/29.2                  21.4                          1275GT, Austin 1300, MG Metro, Late 1275 A+ &  Turbo (note 2 & 3)
12G940                   1.312/33.33         1.15/29.2                 21.4                           Early 1275 A+

The first set of numbers are inlet valve size and the second set are exhaust valve sizes.

Thanks Wakerley.  My inlets are 33.2 and the exhausts are 29.2 so i guess that makes it a good chance to be the early A+ head then.

What a transformation!

Looks very nice. Don't see many yellow motors. Won't be very forgiving in terms of hiding oil leaks, but hopefully that won't be an issue for you  :)

PS. Mazy - something for Alan to work on for yours once he has the red one back up and running  ;)

It does look good, and if an oil leak does develop, it will be easy to track, unlike a black engine  ;)
Many years ago I rebuild my Dads little Honda Civic engine and gearbox. I painted it all bright yellow just like yours, only I didnt tell him. He got a shock when he popped the bonnet for the first time, but he smiled and drove it around for years.

Yellow is my local Member for the Oppositions favorite colour, considering what she let me spend on the cost of parts and machining I thought she was entitled to pick the colour.  Just not too sure about a white valve cover, dip stick and fan pulley though.  I will surely know straight away if i have any oil leaks.

When we got back from Tamworth you could have knocked me over with a feather when she said, "maybe i should have my own Moke if we stay up here"  hmm, it must be contagious.

Yes, the Round Up has had that effect of people before.... We really should put some sort of warning on the rego form  ;). Then again, we've never had any complaints about it  ;D
