    Re: Bleeding Brakes!

    Healey Distributor Cap, Phase 2

    Some may remember my recent jabber about my inability to get the carbon bit out of my BN7's distributor cap so I could attach the coil wire from a new Lucas ignition wire kit. Briefly, the Moss...

    Re: Healey 3000 Distributer Cap

    I had three side-entry caps. All identical in terms of the necessity of removing the carbon bit to reach the screw. I replaced the cap when I bought the car about five years ago without incident,...

    Re: Healey 3000 Distributer Cap

    So, I got a friend more knowledgeable about electrical issues than me (not too difficult a task) over to the garage with his handy-dandy multi-meter. There was no continuity between the coil plug...

    Re: Healey 3000 Distributer Cap

    I would try compressed air to force the carbon bit out but for the presence of the wire blocking the hole. This is a brand new cap marked as sold by Moss. I acquired it two years ago at the Amelia...

  9. Re: Healey redone on upcoming episode of Wheeler Dealer sold at Barrett-Jackson Las V

    Agree with the red interior. I have black, and it shows every speck of dust, grass, etc. As for the Wheeler Dealer car exhaust outlet location, I owned a Healey back in 1963 that had a number of...

    Re: MotaLita steering wheels

    I can't speak to the installation of steering wheels on the early cars. But I can say I have purchased really nice Molta-Lita-style steering wheels from a UK firm on eBay for both a Jaguar MK2 and a...

    Re: Correct run of the Choke Cable of BN6

    This may not be helpful, but I found the choke knob located in the top center of my dash was ineffectual in operating the choke on my '60 BN7. Hard pull just as you experienced. The cable is now...

    Ditto on that. I also made a wooden gripper like Moss sells for my since-sold Jag Mk2 and my BN7 (they aren't the same size). I found myself living on the economy in Rome in 1957-58, having the good...
