    Re: Someday we'll do it again!

    Haha!

    As soon as I told her about it, she's like, "you're going to get it, right?"

    She knew that I wanted to do another "floors & rockers (sills, etc.) job" being infinitely better set up and...

    Re: Someday we'll do it again!

    Must've been something about A) that time of year, and B) that era; I bought my Austin-Healey 100/6 2-seater on April 1st, 1978!

    By by 1978 though, I'd already owned four (4) MGBs ranging from a...

    Re: BJ8 Frame Rust Options?

    I believe repair sections of the frame are available, and that would be the easiest route to take.

  6. Re: Rear shroud connection to the floor pan on a BJ7

    While solid rivets were originally used, I'm sure there's a high percentage of Healeys today wearing easy to install pop-rivets.

    My recommendation would be to use the "closed end" variety, to...

  8. Re: Steering Wheel Location with non-adjusable column

    It has been a long time since I made a direct (back to back) comparison, but I believe the adjustable wheel only brings the wheel closer to the driver.

    To get a little bit of knuckle space, a...

    Re: side change gear box stuck in top gear

    DING! DING! DING!

    That's where my money says the problem is (from the guy that drove from just south of Atlanta to just north of Tampa, using only 4th & 4th/ovd).

    If that is (was) the case,...

    TH, I too wish to extend my condolences; knowing the value of a good woman that if not sharing, at least tolerates my passion with cars is a lucky find.

    MGB Re: Diff refurbish

    It has been a long time since I've had an MGB (something in the works right now....) but there were two (2) driveline "fixes" that I would do almost immediately.

    Re: Front sway bar mounting?

    Hardly! I wanted something thick enough to tap, allowing a minimum of five (>5) threads of engagement.

    Re: BJ8 NGK spark plug

    The NGKs will clean themselves if they get fouled, like getting loaded up in stop-n-go traffic. After an Italian tune up, they fire as crisp as they ever did.
