    Re: DIY Extension for Clutch Bleeding

    If my memory serves, I don't think you can gravity bleed a Big Healey's slave cylinder because the hydraulic line to the slave runs along the top of the firewall. It is higher than the master and...

    Re: Aluminum radiator

    Smart move with the Shroud Rick. But does it work as good laying on its side. I can easily accept that aluminum radiators can work well, ie they are used in most modern cars as well as cylinder...

    If you think your jets are close then instead of just turning the jet nut one way or the other which to me is a guessing game, I instead put a quality tach on the distributor or coil and turn the...

    Re: Tune Up Trouble

    I believe it is running lean.
    How well does it accelerate?

    Re: What is correct wire harness outer wrap

    Yes it does but I wasn't sure if the print would be large enough to read and it is mostly redundant to what was just said including the supplier that you linked to would surely show what was needed....

    Re: Wiring for two front Driving Lights?

    I know that many in the LBC hobby like using relays whenever possible and I know that many times it is not only a good idea but it is necessary. To me whether you use relays or not is not the main...

    Hello folks, sorry to bring in some counter points to the general consensus here but YOU DONT NEED RELAYS. In my opinion there is entirely too much use of relays in the LBC world. People get them...
  12. Re: BJ-8 SU Fuel Pump Clicks Much Faster Than Before

    Ray, don’t you think he should at least offer alms to the old pump. Ya know it didn’t even have the benefit of a TVS. :)
  13. Re: BJ-8 SU Fuel Pump Clicks Much Faster Than Before

    My recommendation is to make sure you don't have any leaks then also buy a new pump. After 46 years I would not want to go any great distance or any distance on that pump. Just bolt a new one up...

    By the way, my tonneau cover has put rub marks on my rear shroud which had an unblemished paint job of only a few years old. I'm not happy about that either.

    You know Rick I am just teasing you. I wouldn't want scratches in my new paint job either. Give it a week or two then take the tape off to achieve patina, if you can get the tape off. Considering...

    Yep, no argument here. I've read both his books. Well worth it. Good lessons on internal management and economics with a little sarcasm & humor thrown in.

    Ok pd, now you can race that Alpha. I'll bet you a C-gar that you can run circles around Rick's Healey. Although I did see a video once of Rick's Healey on the Gymkana, it looked pretty good.
