    Re: Choke sticking

    My '60 BN7's intake manifold had fittings for the automatic choke Healey used briefly during the time my car was produced. I have neatly sealed those ports as that choke system had been removed by a...

    Re: 15 percent ethanol

    I believe most of my collector car friends buy non-ethanol fuel from service stations here in northeast Florida, some of which provide above-ground fuel tanks for that purpose. In fact, this is even...

    A terrible disaster has taken place in western Florida. Since I was asked about, I can report that we didn't even get rain where we live just southwest of Jacksonville before, during or after the...

    Re: Incredible Healey Rebody

    Awesome concept and workmanship on the Testa Rosa copy. I thought I saw a slight flaw in the fit of the left rear fender ventilation, but that didn't diminish my amazement at the design and...

    Re: Brake lights on all the time

    That's a typical Healey repair. Disassemble the suspect organ, examine for a fault, reassemble, it works. My Lucas driving lights installed by a previous owner quit working. I found a bundle of...

    Re: Screen for warm air side

    I have no screens on either hose and haven't had any issues with material blowing into the car. Since I am in North Florida and have my heater tap shut off, I chose to disconnect the hoses on both...

    Re: Proper Aluminum Sump Installation

    Thanks for all of the comments regards my post. I will take them all seriously and will probably follow Steve's advice on purchasing new bolts. I'm hoping to get our Healey club to do this as a...

    Proper Aluminum Sump Installation

  10. Re: Radiator Core Replacement and Sleeve Thermostat Alternatives

    I was able to install the Moss sleeve in my BN7 without incident, but perhaps the gasket I hand made was thicker than standard. I had my radiator rebuilt after buying my car five years ago, but the...

    Re: BJ7 Crown Wheel

    I purchased a 3.54 ring and pinion from SC Parts in the UK at reasonable price. I spent something over $200 having these gears installed by Gear Works in Clearwater, FL, in a donor differential...

    BN7 Speedometer issues

    Since my '60 BN7 has an unidentified Toyota 5-speed and UK-sourced 3.5 differential gears, I don't have much hope that I can get my speedometer to match the car's road speed. I have a Garmin GPS...

    Re: Starter

    I'm not selling GR starters, though my 3000 came with one, but will share a short story. A member of our Healey club had installed a rebuilt engine in his 3000, and the original starter didn't have...

    Re: Broken Spokes

    I have some experience building and truing bicycle wheels, and it seemed that it was accepted that the weight of the bike hangs from the spokes. Those spokes have little strength under compression....

    Anyone looking for the drip pan modification mentioned by MGTF328 above in Healey6 will find it under "modifications." That logic eluded me. This is an excellent site for Healey owners, for sure. ...

    Re: Size of axle bearing nut

    I believe it is 2 3/16" . Borrowed the socket--it's the size of a tea cup--from a fellow club member. Also borrowed the 1" ratchet and extension to go with it. Happily, didn't need to use any of it.

    Re: Bloody "bleeding" issue

    I don't know the answer regards Girling brakes, but I should have spelled Norman Nock's name correctly since I had his book on my desk. I apologize for that.

    Re: Bloody "bleeding" issue

    For what it is worth, Norman Knock, in his book Tech Talk, discourages the use of "pressure bleeding methods" as not being recommended for Girling brake systems (p. 237). I had tried to bleed my...

    That is correct regarding Jaguar wires and Healeys. I had retained my wooden knock-off protector after I sold my '62 Jag Mark 2. It does not fit the Healey knock offs. I was living in Dayton in...
