    Re: BJ8 Frame Rust Options?

    One possible reason why one side of the frame rusted and not the other could be because of proximity to the exhaust system? I owned a Morris Minor which were notorious for chassis rust occurring at...

    On a somewhat related note, am I the only one who thought the photos looked colorized (Photoshop)?

    Re: Healey ergonomics question

    Thanks for the research steveg. The picture of FLW and the Benz is very telling. Still I think designers back then often tended to use themselves as a dimensional standard. Getting back to the Healey...

    Healey ergonomics question

    I often wondered about the cramped cockpit of the Big Healey, especially the 4 cylinder 100. It was said that the reason why houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright all have small doors and low...

    Re: Rebuilding roadster windshield

    Informative thread. I have contemplated replacing the glass on my BN6, which although not cracked, it is not perfectly clear anymore due to discoloration and flaws in the safety layer. Wondering if...
  9. Re: How to inspect the frame in a pre-purchase inspection on a restored car?

    When I was searching for a Healey, the response I heard most often when I asked a seller if the car had any rust issues was "none that I am aware of". Hmmm.
    Given that both cars underwent frame-off...

    Nice work! Compliments your very clean engine bay. I assume you checked clearance required for engine vibration/movement.

    As another said, sheepskin covers do work great. Way back in the day, my Bugeye Sprite had a passenger seat heater named Kathy.

    There are well regarded Nasty Boys with American V8s instead of the original engines, so maybe electric motors have a place in the Austin Healey ecosystem? After all, the Healey badge does include a...

    Re: 100-6 on Leno's Garage

    Cool video. The mods look ok, but hard to improve on the stock Healey design. I could almost tell that the owner wasn't totally comfortable being in the passenger's seat.
  17. Re: Shifting into 2nd, problem because of the Flywheel?

    I'm somewhat mystified by references to downshifting from 2nd to 1st. With 1st being nonsyncro, isn't there a risk of grinding gears? I've heard that some race cars had 'crash boxes' requiring the...

    Re: Door ding!

    Ausmhly, looks promising. My BN6 does not have the same access opening (see pic), so a hole would have to be drilled. I will give it more thought and discuss with the PDR technician.
