    Re: Non-Adjustable steering column questions

    Chet,
    yes, I think it is simpler than the adjustable version. As Bob mentioned, yes there will be some leakage when the stator tube is withdrawn. It depends on the grade of lubricant that is in use....

    Re: Non-Adjustable steering column questions

    G'day Chet,
    Be sure not to cut the wires, they should unsnap and be different lengths to allow them through the stator tube (which you will not be needing to do). The stator tube is held in place...

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

    G’day Michael, I attended the Goodwood Revival in September 2017. I was really impressed by the way the cars were driven.....hard! The racing of old machinery is well supported by a thriving industry...

    G’day lbcspinners,
    I really enjoyed reading that, especially the last bit about wearing a bicycle helmet to lunch! Driving a Healey in Queensland has similar problems, because SUVs are now the most...

    G’day Larry,
    I find this interesting. I have been using NGK spark plugs since KLG became unavailable, and with satisfactory results. But the last four NGKs that I bought (just last week) were...

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    G’day aero3113,
    those wheels are the right colour but obviously not original Sebring wheels. They will certainly fit on one, though.
    I have a spare spiral bevel rear axle. If I advertise it for...

    I hope this reaches you before bedtime. This is Hans & Ria from the Healey Museum in the 100S of a well known authority on the model who lives here in Queensland. Count the spokes!59506

    I believe the Nash Healey Pininfarina Coupe was marketed as the ‘Le Mans’ to celebrate their success.

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    Steve, I would say most 100S owners have understandably replaced their original wheels with a stronger wheels. AC Aces might have had 16” wheels but they were still 48 spokes. 16” wheels were also an...

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    Steve, I wouldn’t say that, although I am not qualified to state an opinion. As well as the Austin-Healey 100, 48s were fitted to the 100S, MG TF and MGA, Triumph TR2 and 3, and the AC Ace. 60 spoke...

    Re: Chrome or painted wheels

    Gday Dave,
    I had painted wheels on my 100 for many years. In the late 70s I found a wheelwright who could rebuild wire-wheels and had a good run for a couple of years. Then the spokes started to...

    Re: Trafficator stopped self-cancelling

    G’day Michael,
    I notice that most of the replies refer to adjustable steering columns, as fitted to six cylinder cars (and the very early 100). On most BN1s and all BN2s the self cancelling ring is...

    Re: Austin-Healey fold-down windshields?

    G’day Reid,
    I wonder if that is where Didier Mongin got the idea? I don’t think he uses this Forum but he posts frequently on one of the popular social media.
