    Re: Carb identification issue

    The number that counts is the number etched into the lower part of the body in pic 2.
    Offhand they appear to be H6 as used in the 100M or LeMans.

    Re: Whitworth Source

    I believe what Mike is looking for is neither UNF or Whitworth.

    Re: BN1 Crown Wheel and Pinion

    No they are not. The spiral bevel axle of the BN1 100 is completely different from the later cars' hypoid unit.

    If you are looking for a stock replacement ratio or any number of alternate ratios,...

    Re: Question on rear brake drums BN6 wire wheel

    You are not likely to find any shop today that has the equipment to re-arc linings. The last time I had access to such equipment was nearly 30 years ago AND we were not allowed to use it due to lack...

    There are three different steering box designs used in the Big Healey.
    #1 was used in the early 100 and had a flat top and a triangular 3-bolt front cover.
    #2 was used in the later 100 and early...

    Re: Rear springs

    Michael, I believe the difference in "leaf" count is due to the thickness of the current spring material versus our original spring material. The original springs used a very thin leaf. The...

    Re: radiator spigot fix

    Just a heads up, but the threads on the petcock/spigot are British Standard Pipe. To be specific, they are 1/4''-19 BSPP. Anyone looking for a drain plug, in stainless, they are available from...

    Re: BN1 Ignition question.

    You seem to be implying that NO BN1 has a timing mark on pulley or timing cover. Is this a known fact or just an assumption ? If it is a known fact, at what engine number were they added? I can...

    Re: extra stop/brake light

    Dave, you may want to check your state's vehicle code. I believe states typically do not allow the center high mounted light to have any function other than a brake light. Flashing lights of any kind...

    Re: extra stop/brake light

    The answer is fairly simple. The wire you refer to in the trunk is not a "stop light" wire. It is a dual purpose wire that operates the stop and turn light and there is one for each side of the car....

    OK, pulled the valve and spring out of my spare block. I have no doubt they are original based on the wear on the valve and the fact that this engine hadn't been run since at least the mid-70's. I...

    Re: 100 Main Bearing Caps--removal in situ

    Michael,

    As you can see from the pics, the stock 100 definitely has through bolts into the rear main cap. However, on the DWR site, you can find a pic of steel main caps that do not include...

    At the front, you also have two bolts going through engine plate and into the front main cap. Once removed, the cap will come off. One potential problem (and it applies to the rear cap as well) is...
