    Re: Fuel pump racing, no gas

    As Tahoe Healey suggests, drive without the gas cap, this will at least answer the question whether a vacuum is being created in the tank due the cap not venting properly. As mentioned, I had exactly...
  2. Re: Post- Open Roads 2002: Tahoe to MD the long way

    Wow, it would have been pretty special to get hit by a Grosser, the dictators’ favourite car, they are rare things.

    Im enjoying reading the blogs Michael.

    Maybe, but do you really want a pink interior?:)

    Re: Fuel pump racing, no gas

    Check to see if the fuel tank cap is venting properly. If it isn’t a vacuums effect is created. You will hear a pressure hiss when removing the cap. Just a thought, it happened to me.

  6. Re: Distributor to Spark Plug lead wire continuity

    Those AH Spares bumblebee wires with the solid plastic terminals are not very good anyway. I bought some but quickly changed them out. Wires are OK but I hated the terminals.

    Re: Engine rebuild

    Which camshaft profile? Those numbers look optimistic given that in period they only put out about 120 bhp in reality.
  9. Re: Does anyone still make or sell a quality condenser?

    Denis Welch make a quality condenser which sits outside of the distributor. Or you could install the Powerspark ignition system, which is simple to fit and provides better running of the engine, plus...

    Re: Slide Assemblies, BN4L

    I’m not sure that it is especially difficult in accessing the top when it’s stowed. True that it takes a some time to erect and it’s not something worth doing for a light shower, however accessing...

    Re: Slide Assemblies, BN4L

    Blue skies, there is a particular method to be followed in how to fold the Longbridge top in order to get it to stow away properly. It’s set out in the owners manual, If you haven’t tried it, check...

    Craig is correct. They are two different things regardless of whether you keep the starter solenoid or not. The original inertia starter is primitive compared to the modern gear reduction, pre...

    Re: Primrose Yellow / Black with yellow upholstery

    That looks a little too pale and lemony to me. I think Skinners colour is probably correct. It should be fairly similar to the tone and hue of the paint itself otherwise it will clash. You have to...

    Re: Primrose Yellow / Black with yellow upholstery

    I have seen an example of one since I stopped updating the website, unfortunately I can’t find the photo or reference to where I saw it. My memory says it is definitely a yellow colour rather than a...
  17. Re: Steering Wheel Location with non-adjusable column

    Even Ferrari’s are like that, with the wheel on a flattish plane rather than more upright, it makes the cockpit look a bit weird to me.
  18. Re: Seat Bottoms And Bases Don't Seem To fit Together Well

    The corner of the upholstered seat looks to be too much of a right angle rather than curved.

    Re: A little "Stay-at-Home" Healey Nostalgia

    Great photos and a great turnout of 120 cars. Look at the driver demographic, all young, those were the days, although I only had a Triumph Spitfire.

    Re: Steering not right

    Dave, you are right about DWR not showing it as a part. I called them up to discuss the subject and said “I don’t suppose you just sell the arms do you” and they said yes we do. It was a good price...

    Who was responsible for the sloppy spline work? After my crash my splines were completely twisted so I bought a replacement shaft from DWR.

    Re: Healey ergonomics question

    The steering on these old cars is very heavy, not just Healeys. In order to be able to turn the wheel it has to be closer to your body in order to get leverage. The leg room is ok, in fact for some...

    Re: Boot floorboard?

    Steve, there was no wood under the armacord and no flap on the 100-Six. The armacord sits on the tank and folds down into the recess. The 3000s were the same. BJ8 maybe different.
  25. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    I agree with Healey nut. How do you rebuild a hub, you may want to question your garage about this and also ask them to help you remove the wheels as it appears they caused the problem. Otherwise I...
