    Re: 66 Austin Healey fuel pump replaced

    So, the answer is to never sit still in a Healey? I wish it were that simple, but stop lights/signs and traffic jams keep getting in my way. Neither of my cars has heating issues underway, but the...

    Re: 66 Austin Healey fuel pump replaced

    I think the main issue with pumps sitting above the exhaust was cavitation ('vapor lock') of the fuel above the hot exhaust. Kinda moot since you have the same issue with the carbs sitting above the...

    Re: AH EFI build... again

    How much for the P-80 (or is it a T-33?)?
  4. Re: H Type Carburetors BN2 M version Leaking Fuel At Jet Bearing Area

    I think the only way to do it would be to attack from underneath, but I don't know if that's even possible. I think these seals--either rubber or cork--are going to leak sooner or later; maybe why...

  6. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    Absolutely! Grease/anti-seize keeps the splines from rusting together; any old grease or anti-seize works fine. Smear some silicone RTV on the inside of the hubs to prevent the grease from being...
  7. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    Sounds like you won't be able to easily rotate them, though.
  8. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    Twas (half) a joke. But have you ever seen what happens when the rear wheels don't go the direction the fronts do?

  9. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    From what I've heard/read you should always have the best rubber on the rear wheels, even on FWD cars. I think--maybe wrongly--that it's actually the rear wheels that do the steering; the front...

    The LPM guys generally go 'by the book;' i.e. FAA AC 43.13, the "A&P's Bible." It's online--646 pages--here:

    Thanks. I've got a couple of ratcheting crimpers, which I like, but I haven't been able to find connectors that crimp both the stripped wire and the insulation, which I think is the most robust...

    Hey Steve, Where'd you get those nifty clear spade lugs? Nice work, BTW.
  17. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    For over twenty years I put 4-6K miles on my BJ8 (most on an annual long road trip). I always rotated them at 5K miles (annually) like any other radials and never had an issue (FWIW).

  18. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    That's a cutting torch. I'd be pretty careful with it.
  19. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    Is there enough room to get a large bearing splitter between the wheel and the hub?

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    If I've got this right--not guaranteed--caster angle on a Healey is achieved by offsetting the bottom A-arm brackets. IOW, the front and rear A-arm brackets are not parallel to the main chassis...

    Re: Petrol Drains

    Moss sells them now (I believe they have a distributor somewhere in England). They're almost $10 each(!), and the 'ferrules' that come with them are just small, round rubber grommets.

    FWIW, my dad bought a Falcon SS muffler for our BN2. When first installed, I thought it sounded tinny compared to the mild steel one on other Healeys, but after a few hundred miles--maybe running a...

    Re: Trafficator and steering adjustment

    If you tighten the adjuster stud on the box too tight, the steering won't self-center (at least, that's what happened when I did it).

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    Doesn't sound right to me; call or email Peter at WWA and ask him. WWA is considered the best in the business, I'd hate to think they're 'slipping.'
