    Try Healey Surgeons. They're close to you and have quality stuff.

    Re: hydraulic line material

    I would agree with what's been said; the pre-made copper-nickel stuff is the way to go. I re-plumbed my bugeye with it. It's easy to bend (with a tubing bender of course), and it doesn't rust.

    Thanks to everyone who answered. I had no idea there were so many good choices out there. Time to start making a decision, I guess.

    Re: Compensation

    If you have a truck that big, you can just hang a few Morris Minors (or Bugeyes for that matter) off the sides as lifeboats.
  5. bugeye front tilt hood fastener -- choices

    I need fasteners for my front tilt bonnet. I am considering getting one of the choices in the links below. It looks to me like the first one (the all metal one) is NOT spring loaded, and the...

    Re: Leaking Carburettor

    Steve is correct that these are overflow ports. However, a correctly functioning carb shouldn't overflow. If you've got fuel leaking out it's probably because 1) the float is incorrectly adjusted;...

    Re: Proper Engagement of Overdrive

    I don't use the clutch with the overdrive, and I don't think it was originally designed to use the clutch. Interesting idea, though, to use the main clutch and save wear on the overdrive clutch.

    Thanks John. That one appears to have a lot of adjustment, and the price is great!
  11. Re: starter motor pinion gear -- 9 or 10 teeth?

    I was hoping to fix the starter I have, but you're probably right; it's not worth the time or trouble. If I'm going to replace, I'll probably go for the GR starter. My wife drives the car more than...
  12. starter motor pinion gear -- 9 or 10 teeth?

    I have a late model 1275 cc (the engine number starts with 12V) engine in my bugeye. The starter motor works fine except that it doesn't appear to engage the ring gear smoothly. There's a lot of...

    Re: Tire choices for Bugeyes

    Ya gotta forgive Drew, he's always using those highly technical terms like "light flickability". :friendly_wink: I think he means how quickly the car handles.

    I also use 155/80R13 size tires...

    Re: trouble on 1st start

    Just because the the pulley notch lines up with TDC doesn't mean the cam timing is right. HealeyNut is correct; you need to look at the valves.

    Also, the fact that the wires from Moss don't work...

    Please let us know what happens. Many of us (well, at least me) are interested in the outcome and learn from these puzzles.

    Re: trouble on 1st start

    You may have good fuel pressure to your carbs, but are the float bowls full? Easy enough to pull the top and check.

    If you've got spark at the plugs and the distributor is oriented correctly,...

    Re: AngliaGT - calling Doug! calling Doug!

    Tom,
    Why don't you take 5 boxes at a time in an old Mercedes? Think of the fun you'd have!

    If you're really planning to do this (in a truck, I mean), I hop you plan to stop in Utah.

    The choke cable is probably not pulling the jets all the way down. Pull the choke cable all the way out and look at the position of the jets on the bottom of the carburetors. Then disconnect the...

    Nice job TL. I can't believe you did it by yourself. I had 4 helpers, and it was still a bear. Like you said; at one point I started to wonder if the thing was actually going to fit!

    Re: bugeye top bows

    So, do your bows stay in the straight position by themselves? Or, is your top tight with the bows in the collapsed position?
