    Re: Gearbox and Overdrive Oil Level

    Hi Gerd,

    I appreciate the effort you have extended to validate your conclusion but, since I have not performed the task for quite a while, I have requested comments from friend who rebuild...

    Re: Gearbox and Overdrive Oil Level

    Hi Gerd,

    What is confusing is that the transmission box alone is specified to take 6 US pints or 2.8 liters with the remaining to 1.5 US pints or 0.8 liters to satisfy the OD. Your level pf 5.5...

    Re: Gearbox and Overdrive Oil Level

    Hi Gerd,

    Keep in mind that the overdrive is a pressure pump and its passages need to be filled. Let the engine/transmission stand for a day (arbitrary) to allow for the oil to seep into many of...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Drone,

    I hate to correct you but they were the Good YOUNG Days and these are the Good Old Days...at least as I see it. Back then I drove from Stowe Vermont back to NYC with my Healey's rotor...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Hi Drone,

    First, isn't it nice when a fix works that doesn't require a replacement. I like your TR6-fix and will consider using it before ordering new parts.

    Good work,

  6. Re: How to inspect the frame in a pre-purchase inspection on a restored car?

    Hi All,

    When evaluating the Healey's frame, keep in mind that when testing the frame as previously recommended, you are not only stressing the traditional box frame for movement but all welded...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Drone Dog,

    If the leak was relatively light, it may have been slowed by the engine heat expanding the connection. However this would not be as probable if the opening was in the pipe created by...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Hi Rob,

    No. I am talking about changing all the rubber in the clutch master cylinder (i.e. rebuilding). I always understood you had to take the MC out of the car to perform the rubber exchange. ...

    Re: Clutch Master Cylinder Leak

    Hi Drone Dog,

    I don't mean to expand your issue but have you identified the location of the leak specifically within the reservoir-MC line? If not, I would suggest you look under the dash and...

    Re: Electric Relay Placement

    Hi All,

    Steve, yes, many manufacturers have centralized protection centers for fuses, relays, and diagnostic computer plugins and, due to their electronic complexity, were designed that way. Our...

    Re: Turn Signal Indicator Light Always Flashing

    Hi Doug/Vette,

    I stand corrected in that the ground is different for a single dash indicator as with those having 2 dash indicators. Based upon Vette's explanation, I can appreciate his analysis...

    Re: Turn Signal Indicator Light Always Flashing

    Hi Vette,

    As I understand Doug's issue, his turn signals work fine and, when activated, the dash indicator lights. However, the dash indicator continues to flash and glow at a low level even...

    Re: Turn Signal Indicator Light Always Flashing

    Hi Doug,

    The Flasher Relay Box is not a simplistic unit in that its operation is, in some instances, counter to straight forward logic. The attached diagram is one I put together to understand...

    Re: 64 front end too high

    Hi All,

    Bob, what looks odd about the thermostat housing?

    It is a Phase 1 BJ8 and should be even lower them a comparable Phase 2. I'd bet they installed new or re-arched springs at both ends...

    Hi Michael,

    I can't blame you for putting this issue's correction off as long as possible as its solution involves a broad analysis of a number of components and not just springs. I must admit...

    Michael,

    If the levels were even, would you ever notice? From where I am coming, it is a matter of perception and what you like. I went through the effort because it both bothered me and was an...

    Re: raising ride height

    Hi AJ and Happy New Year,

    Leaf spring creaking is caused by metal-to-metal movement under pressure. Although not all leaves in the spring move, those that do cause your noise. Spraying will...

    Hi Michael and Happy New Year,

    Around a decade ago, my Healey had also sunk in the rear to a height that started to take a toll on my Ansa resonator. Concerned with the loss and not liking the...
