    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    This circuit will work. With the N/O (normally open) contacts open the stop/turnsignal relay will operate normally. There would be no interconnection of any circuits. When the 3-way toggle switch...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    Please forgive my miscellaneous ramblings on this, just thinking out load. I just realized that my circuit has a terminal flaw. As many know the difficulty in doing this with the Healey is that the...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    Larry, Well this has been like the old story of a brain teaser that won't go away. So I've taken another look at this. No i have not here-to-fore paid much attention to 4 way flasher circuits so...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    Larry, I'm glad you came back to see this again. Yes, I have to say that my circuit and ideas will not work to flash a
    4-way flasher scenario. Don't hook up to the #1 terminal of the...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. You never said "4 - WAY" . That changes the whole game, all bets are off. I couldn't figure why you would need an alternate circuit for your turnsignals. Well Good luck, My...

    Re: BN4 Longbridge flasher unit.

    Hello Larry, I'll have a go at this. i have schmatics for the 6 cyl cars. But Dougs use of colours especially on the switch don't really match anything exactly. I'll attach a few pics to help...

    Ray I was also going to suggest a stethoscope so be careful. If it is one designed for automotive use they are very, very sensitive and I believe could quite easily hurt your ears. Mine is so...

    Re: Steering Idler Noise

    Yep, do that. This is what it looks like. Be sure to shim the zerk fitting with a thin washer because its threads will go too deep and groove the shaft if ya don't. If your idler arm and shaft are...

    Re: BJ8 Adjusting valve clearance

    The chart that red57 has shown is the rule of 13. It is good for any 6 cyl engine with 2 valves per cylinder. So you pick a number from 1 to 12 and open that valve fully then adjust the...

    In my case it was up to around 2000 rpms. I never gave it a thought about possibly the distributor causing it. I am sure that my distributor is in good shape but lets assume that the centrifugal...

    Re: Intake manifold drain pipes

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

    Looks like nice work Max. I'm curious in wondering if the Chevy six had a split manifold and exhaust like the Healey would the exhaust note be similar to the Healey's? I'm also wondering if the...

    Re: Master cylinder packing pieces (shims)

    I don't know that I can attest that the shims can be used to adjust the height of the pedals. I have shims on both my masters and my pedals are even. It seems to me that there is enough play in at...

    I think the use of the shims by the factory fits right in with the thinking at the time. Remember that Donald Healey built this car to race and rally. He built it light and cheap. He didn't know...
