    Re: BT7 seat rails

    I'm 6'3" and have come to actually like the driving position: there's adequate leg room (with the stock seating position), and a sort of immediacy of having a steering wheel only inches in front of...

    Too lean?

    I have a Falcon stainless steel exhaust on my BT7, which I think is fairly high-flow (at least it sounds loud, for better or worse).

    The car drove fine, but on hot days, it was running rich enough...

    Re: Rain water entering my car

    Isn't that funny?

    I really try to keep my Healey out of the rain, but of course, living in New England, localized showers pop up on otherwise brilliantly sunny days. I've been caught in sudden...

    Re: Windscreen washer pump upgrade

    So, I replaced my pump this year with the (manual, dash-mounted) one Moss sells.


    We'll see if it holds up, but so far I've been pleasantly surprised how well it works.


    Of course, I really...

    Re: winter hard starting BJ7

    I dunno, my Healey starts fine in ~20 degree F (-7 C) weather, without gadgets. Anything colder usually means we're in salt season.

    Even with a hardtop and side curtains, though, it's cold! It's...

    Re: Stalling

    Clogged inlet screens on the carbs? Clogged fuel pickup? (I've seen cars act similarly with very dirty fuel filters....)

    Is your gas cap venting correctly?

    Starter Drive Washer?

    So something bad happened to my starter, causing the cotter pin at the end of the drive assembly to disintegrate and the end nut to strip out. (Actually, I'm guessing the nut was stripped first,...

    To add 2 cents to your original question, like others, I just unbolt the slave cylinder (from underneath the car) to bleed it. The top bolt can be tricky, but a cheapie offset wrench works for me:...
  13. Re: removal of transmission cover from 1959 100-6

    It's a puzzle in my BT7 too. I clearly remember at one point, the first time I tried pulling the tunnel, I thought it was impossible with the handbrake in place, but then suddenly I got it. Something...

    Re: Loud Trans Scrapping Noise

    I'll second this. I once hit a bump that manged to get the cable wedged between the driveshaft and frame. Scary noise that would change significantly with driveline torque load.

    Yes, there are screws along the bulkhead flange. Hopefully you can gently peel the carpet back enough to get to them....

    In my car, the carpet piece covering the removable tunnel was tucked very...

    Re: Overdrive pressure question

    Bingo -- I cleaned the operating valve seat with a clean cloth, tapped the ball lightly with a drift, and gave the spring a tug to stretch it out a bit.


    Now, when stopped, pressure gently falls...

    Overdrive pressure question

    Hello all --

    My overdrive has been slow to engage (and sometimes slips) when hot. I thought I had licked the problem with heavyweight oil and an operating valve adjustment a few years ago (which...

    Re: 6-port head casting numbers?

    So in my case, someone installed that 100-6 head onto a (29D) 3000 block. The engine _seems_ to run great with plenty of power, et cetera -- are there disadvantages (other than orginality) to this...

    Mine used to do that too. I assume a pump rebuild is eventually in order, but in the meantime I:

    - adjusted the operating lever so the ball valve...

    After 4 1/2 years of a similarly unending restoration, I did have Knut Holzer/BMC finish my 3000 BT7.
