    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    Hi Steve,
    Maybe the issue of the trunnion and shock arms don't center is because of how I have the car jacked up?

    It seems no matter how much information I provide, I just don't provide enough....

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    Jack stands are placed under the frames I-beams.
    Scissor jack is placed under the spring seat, so I can raise/lower the control arm.
    Front shocks are bolted in place.
    When the control arm is...

    Re: BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    Hello Derek, I agree, they are going to fit. (disclaimer, nothing on a Healey will fit without a little work).

    My question wasn't if it will fit, rather the design change. "Don't know what type...

    Re: BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    Is there a noticeable sound difference between the mild steel and Stainless muffler systems on a Healey?
    I'd assume the mild steel would sound more similar to the original Healey's, being originals...

    If a shock does not leak, yet occasionally needs topping off, where does the oil go?

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    I received the 4 shocks back from WWA. I Put them on the bench to test them. One front shock doesn't have much resistance. I raised the arms on both front shocks to the top, released them at the...

    Re: Exhaust Manifold Flange Stud

    Thanks Bob,
    Youtube showed how to do that. My concern...remove situ with Vice Grips, stud snaps clean at the flange so a nut can't be welded, or enough stud left to weld a nut then it re-snaps clean...

    Exhaust Manifold Flange Stud

    The six Exhaust Manifold studs at the exhaust flange seem to be the original and worn out. I've cleaned them with a brass wire brush to find out they're not really in good condition. I thought about...

    Would a leak at the manifold exhaust flange (or any leaks in exhaust system) impact the fuel system?

    Re: Exhaust leaks

    Ok, not the first guy to ever ask this question, so feel free to school me.
    If the flanges are warped, would having a thicker gasket help? Being they come in only one thickness, double the gaskets?

    What performance problems could exhaust leaks cause?

    I did a leak test today by attaching a leaf blower to the tail pipes and spraying soapy water to the entire muffler system. More leaks than I...
  14. Re: Led headlight conversion kit with Lucas headlight bucket

    Halogens draw more amps vs the old sealed beam headlights and LEDs.
    I've read LED don't provide the same light pattern as Halogens, however they hardly draw any amps (good for plug and play with...

    I'll assume to install the rubber bushings one would grease the rubber, inside for the fulcrum pin and outside to help with pressing them straight in. Insert the fulcrum pin, nut, cotter pin. Done....

    The camber on both front wheels are off.

    Since I am having the front shocks replaced, this would be a good time to replace the stock rubber trunnion bushings with adjustable ones.

    Hello Elliot,
    How many coats of Urethane did you apply?
    Would you post a photo of your shift knob so I can see how it came out?
