    Re: My BJ8 Barn Find

    Would love to see some pictures. Also, how does the frame/bottom of the car and the rest of the structure look?

    Re: Before and After Pics Longbridge 100-6

    He is quite the guard dog, lol. He watches a lot of work very intently. And he's always under the car with me, trying to lick my face, whenever I have to work there. It's good to have a helper.

    Re: Before and After Pics Longbridge 100-6

    That Longbridge Healey on BAT could well be one of the best survivors left and may have a future in a museum. I would be afraid to drive it out of fear of putting more wear and tear on it.

    Before and After Pics Longbridge 100-6

    This car came to me after the person who began the restoration suffered a stroke and could not continue the work. He had done an excellent job of rebuilding the frame and much of the car structure;...

    Re: Healey ergonomics question

    Leg room and other space certainly is a bit limited in both the "big Healey" and the C1 Vettes. Many of us are reminded of this whenever getting into and exiting any of these cars. Once seated,...

    Re: Fuel pump racing, no gas

    If the filter is down stream from the pump, as it appears to be, installing the filter backwards should not cause the pump to continue clicking/running. For some reason, the pump is not building...

    Re: Safety-wiring knock-offs

    healeyblue - thanks for correcting my lapse in terminology. I meant the knockoff - the hub had not come off. The first time it happened, the knockoff was found separate from the wheel. The second...

    Re: Safety-wiring knock-offs

    From experience, I can tell you that Healey wheels can come off while driving. This happened to my BN6, twice, in one evening when I was 20 years old. I was only a few hours into a 1,400 drive when...

    Re: Calibrate Smiths Tachometer

    Do you have a digital timing light? That should tell you the RPMs. Or, if you have it available, try a stroboscope.

    Re: Fuel tank safety

    Not sure whether those extra parts in there would ever cause a problem. Certainly, avoiding sparks in trying to retrieve anything is an important consideration.

    Re: 1962 3000 Hood/Bonnet Grille

    These things are a bit delicate, so it's good to see your cautious approach. I could be wrong, but the main reason for the fiber washer between the chrome surround and the hood/bonnet may be to...

    Re: new generator....

    It's not difficult to access the points and check them. Or you could try a new solid state regulator. Or some other issue that will take more detective work may well be the cause of the problem.

  13. Re: Side window question for early Longbridge BN4

    John, thanks for the reply. I agree that the sidecurtains that you have (and those in my first photo) probably are the correct style for this range of Longbridge cars. So, today, I began rebuilding...

    Thanks, johnea. I had seen those pages. But Anderson and Moment complicate it by saying that Healey changed the side window design three times just during the relatively short time of Longbridge...

    Interesting video - helps me understand why so many of these cars have become impossible to obtain for the majority of us. Healeys - at least the run of the mill variety - may remain one of the few...

    It does not appear altered - maybe stretched a little, but still close to spec. Long-shot thought here, but is it possible that you have seat backs from an earlier Healey, possibly from an early...
