    Re: Tonneau Install Question

    Red 57 asked the right question, and it was a good point - on the outer stiffeners I had to trim about a half inch or so, on the trunk side of the stiffener (and an angled cut to boot) to get the...

    Re: Tonneau Install Question

    If you look on the Moss Motors website, "tonneaus and stiffener bar", they provide a visual as to how the tonneau bar and stiffeners are supposed to fit, and yes, the "flattened" end of the...

    Re: Type L SU fuel pump

    Writing just to say that I found Randy Forbes' comments (and accompanying photo/website reference) on using a facet fuel pump to be a good alternative to the SU fuel pump, in the event of failure....

    Re: Another leak, another question...

    Chet,

    Yep, the best Christmas gift to give a Healey owner is a set of chromed axle stands, because you'll be spending a good deal of time on your back under these Liberian tankers, locating/fixing...

    TR6 Re: TR6 tires

    Tom,

    No I'm not looking for 165/65/15 myself, but "TR3 Driver" was asking if Kuhmo was still making their skinny 165 tire, so I happened to come across that size (Kuhmo) in my search for tires and...

    TR6 Re: TR6 tires

    Tom,

    Bang on. Those Commanders with the slim roofline, and the Golden Hawks were way ahead of their time, style wise.

    BTW, I did look up Kuhmo tires in response to Randall's question about...

    TR6 Re: TR6 tires

    Hey Tom,

    Thanks for the input. I hear you on all counts - in fact I was considering Kuhmo, as well as Yokohama, and they seem to be a good compromise between driveability and affordability. Was a...

    TR6 TR6 tires

    Noticed some cracks in the sidewalls of my Avon tires this summer, so looking to replace them this coming year. Did some web searches, and was looking at the usual suspects - Coker redlines,...

    AH 3000 engine leaks

    OK. Truth to be told, my BT7 is a bit of a British Bulldog, in that it likes to mark its' territory. Several years ago, I installed one of the Moss rear engine seal kits to try to stem the seepage....

    AH 3000 activating the overdrive

    Was just reading the posts on "Overdrive Issue", and it brought to mind another question that a buddy of mine and myself have differences of opinion about.

    Evening folks

    Quick and dirty question.... (couldn't find anything on the "search" option). Picked up some sparkplugs for my 3000, and purchased NGK BPR 6ES. Then I did a bit of research after the...

    Bob is right. The eyelets do come in several sizes, and are mated to the corresponding size fasteners. I just replaced several of mine. Got them from a local upholstery shop that does car/boat...

    update - upholstery glue

    A while back I posted a reply about the glue that I used in redoing the upholstery on one of the Healeys. I suggested 3M Super 77, because it seemed to work well.

    I stand corrected.
