    TR2/3/3A Re: Dot 5

    I've had DOT5 in my bugeye for about 30 years and still good (maybe time for a bleed and refill while I've got some spare time) Great stuff. Only disadvantage is a slightly spongier brake pedal...

    Re: A Virus Scene from my Kidhood

    Just like there's no atheists in foxholes, I suspect some of those folks may be re-examining their beliefs once a coronavirus vaccine is available.

    Re: Austin 7- amazing find!

    Great story, JP. Someone commented on Bring A Trailer that there should be the equivalent of Ancestry.com for cars. You'd have a good start on the Seven's family tree.

    A Virus Scene from my Kidhood

    62928

    This is from a drive-in polio vaccination spot in Los Angeles in 1960. It's notable Mom is driving a bugeye as Dr. Jonas Salk, the inventor of the polio vaccine, drove a bugeye when he was...
  6. Re: Steering Wheel Location with non-adjusable column

    I remember that technique being called "shuffle steering" where the wheel is held at the bottom and is passed between the two hands, rather than the crossed arms that occur when using the 10 to 2...
  7. Re: Steering Wheel Location with non-adjusable column

    What a difference in driving positions to the Fiats that I owned. An orangutan could've been comfortable driving those cars.

    Great story, Lin. They say never meet your heroes. Donald was the exception to that rule.

    Re: On the road again

    Very nice bugeye. Funny how complaints about the bugeye's lack of a boot lid and the funny-looking headlamps is what caused the redesign into the Mk II and now are the features that make them...

    Bugeye Sprite and boot lid???? Wha.....? Now we definitely need pictures.
  11. Re: Healey assembly line - engine installation

    For point of comparison, this is the original jpeg that Jim Blohm submitted to Reid and me along with his article from his original slides. I'm guessing Kodachrome as well, as Paul Simon once said...
  12. Re: Congratulation To Healey Marque Magazine

    Reid has done a great job lining up a steady group of contributors. It's not an easy task finding new and different stories about a marque that has been out of production for more than half a...

    Re: My BJ8 Barn Find

    There's generally a reason cars were rolled into barns and it wasn't so some happy new owner could find them years later, change the gas in the tank and motor away. Usually, something broke and was...
  14. Re: Envirosafe R134a replacement refrigerant

    One issue I haven't heard mentioned with Envirosafe is that since professional shops need a dedicated reclaiming machine for each type of refrigerant, they won't work on your system once you fill it...

    So sorry to hear this. Must be particularly difficult to be without your partner in this period of isolation.

    Re: John Wheatley, R.I.P.

    Try this, which is the whole program the Wheatley clip is taken from Start around 16:25 which will get you into the 100 history and the Wheatleys. Actually, the whole show is very good.

  19. Re: Envirosafe R134a replacement refrigerant

    Been doing some reading on Envirosafe. Looks like it's been around for quite some time. Might be best for R12 conversions and some report that it's colder that R134a. My BMW conversion will be set...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Inner tie rod ball joint.

    Can you wedge a pickle fork ball joint separator in there and drive it in far enough to provide tension? You may have to lever the pickle fork downwards to get enough tension.

  23. Re: Envirosafe R134a replacement refrigerant

    Since I'm basically building the system from the ground up for 134a, guess I'll have to do some more research before it's time for the refrigerant fill.
  24. Re: Envirosafe R134a replacement refrigerant

    I thought R134a was the environmentally safe replacement for Freon. What's the advantage to this? Am rebuilding an AC system for R134 in an 80s BMW and would be interested in what the latest...

    Re: Safety-wiring knock-offs

    That's a Triumph GT6 top that was sectioned on. There's also an ACME top that looks similar (no relation to Wile E. Coyote)
