    Sound proofing recommendations

    I know most of you guys over the pond are more concerned about blocking heat rather than sound but Iím hoping somebody has some good suggestions for the latter. My car is relatively stripped out plus...

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

    The bigger question for me is why was a Corvette powered Healey allowed in a race at Goodwood. I don’t recall seeing that before in UK classic racing, which is based on controlled specs. That...

    Re: Scuttle shake.

    Before tearing the car apart, take a deep breath and consider where you are at the moment. Does the car still suffer badly from scuttle shake after you installed the new wheels etc? Have the rear...
  6. Re: engine stutter of rebuild BT7 engine (tri-carb) above 2500 rpm

    Is the rotor arm a really tight fit? I had a similar hesitation under hard acceleration and it was due to a loose fitting rotor. Get a new one from Distributor Doctor. Worth buying even if it doesn’t...

    Not going to install one myself but I’m curious to know why it is always Toyota gearboxes that are installed?

    Re: Trying to contact Pete Delaney 5 speed.

    Of course a Toyota gearbox is better than the original but then you aren’t driving an Austin Healey.

    Re: Trying to contact Pete Delaney 5 speed.

    Might be simpler to just change back to a set of normal gears. Switching to a 5 speed means spending money and reducing the value of your car.

    Re: Unique Nasty Boy Race Car On BAT

    Not much of a Healey left but a cool car, however I prefer the way it looked when it was white. It didn’t have the big cut out in front of the driver and the steering column looked like it was in the...

    I use the Powerspark electronic ignition, I’ve used it for 3 years, the price at the time was about £30, less than half the competition price over here, so I have a couple of spares just in case....

    It’s not entirely clear what your aim is. Are you trying to improve the handling, the performance or both? In isolation I see no point in updating the rear springs in a normal road car. Replacing the...

    Re: Tune Up Trouble

    Popping on the overrun is usually caused by excess fuel igniting on the hot exhaust. Popping while coasting is not a backfire.

    Re: Gold Level Concours Value

    Agree with the comments that ‘the market’ prefers shiny late BJ8s or 100s rather than the 3000 roadsters. The interior is correct for a Pacific Green or Florida. Green car. BRG was not a production...

    Re: New cylinder heads

    Vette, aluminium heads are considerably lighter and removing all that weight from high up in the front improves handling.

    Interesting development. Cast iron heads had become so rare that UK competition rules were amended to allow alloy heads, as racers complained they could not find any iron replacements. I think this...
