FIRSTLY, you have a gem. The 4A-GE engine is regarded as a classic and much sought-after to fit in Mini Clubmans. There are no major problems to be concerned about with the engine. Secondly, the engine is a free-spinning design, the piston tops are relieved to provide clearance to the valve train so there shouldn't be a problem if you break a cam belt. That said, anything is possible if you break a belt at high engine speed, when you might stretch a valve stem enough to make contact. High-mileage cars can have a problem with fifth gear, but don't panic, it's not something to be too concerned about.
