    Re: John Wheatley, R.I.P.

    Rest in Peace John. We met in 1978 and spent some time together when I had several months visiting my country of birth. Before I returned to Australia he gave me an Austin blueprint depicting the...

    Rick & Reid,
    Your comments are spot on! I have been involved with organising Australian national events since 1977 when we held the sixth National Rally in Brisbane (the first in Queensland). We...

    Re: Healeys at Goodwood

    Vette,
    I have a 100 and a '60 Sprite in my garage, so I checked the width of both screens. They are both 47" wide at the bottom, so a Sprite windscreen will certainly fit. If you would like to learn...

    Re: Healeys at Goodwood

    G'day Vette,
    The coupe in the Goodwood video is OAC 1 which was converted to a roadster in the '70s. The coupe panels came to Australia to be used to build a replica of ONX 113. That never happened...

    Re: Austin-Healey 100M auction on BAT!

    Reid,
    The correct English term is "thingumabob", though this is often shortened to 'thingy". Parts of London might say "fingamebab". Certain dialects may use the alternative "watchamacallit" but as...

    Re: Non-Adjustable steering column questions

    Chet,
    yes, I think it is simpler than the adjustable version. As Bob mentioned, yes there will be some leakage when the stator tube is withdrawn. It depends on the grade of lubricant that is in use....

    Re: Non-Adjustable steering column questions

    G'day Chet,
    Be sure not to cut the wires, they should unsnap and be different lengths to allow them through the stator tube (which you will not be needing to do). The stator tube is held in place...

    Re: Why Would Anyone Butcher a Healey with a V8?

    G’day Michael, I attended the Goodwood Revival in September 2017. I was really impressed by the way the cars were driven.....hard! The racing of old machinery is well supported by a thriving industry...

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    G’day aero3113,
    those wheels are the right colour but obviously not original Sebring wheels. They will certainly fit on one, though.

    I believe the Nash Healey Pininfarina Coupe was marketed as the ‘Le Mans’ to celebrate their success.

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    Steve, I would say most 100S owners have understandably replaced their original wheels with a stronger wheels. AC Aces might have had 16” wheels but they were still 48 spokes. 16” wheels were also an...
