    Re: Open Roads International 2002: A Journal

    Re: Hide the Women and Children

    I've had that same thought myself. And maybe on top of that, no one will even be able to drive them anymore - even if you could find anyone who wanted to - because at some point they won't be...

    Re: Hide the Women and Children

    Thanks for noticing. French is my second language (although some might say that English is) and I do try to defend its honor. Carry on.

    Re: Hide the Women and Children

    I love the last line of the ad, "*We highly recommend each car is inspected by a third party prior to purchase."

    A third party? You mean, because if you see it for yourself you'll run the other...

    Re: Need an Anti-Tramp Bar?

    Tadek,

    Not to change the subject, but I'm curious and perhaps you can contact me via PM to address my questions:

    Is there a Healey club or British car club in Poland? If so, do they have a...

    Re: H6 Carb Mounting

    Just by way of follow-up, we found that the cold air box would not fit with the spacers ("insulating blocks") installed. I suppose that the special shroud support bracket could be modified or...

    Although it's quite possible that someone here can advise you about this - a general auto electrics issue - note that there is also a "Spridgets" Forum in the British Car Forum and you might want to...

    Re: Starting After Carbs Rebuilt

    Just a brief sidebar, but I only recently became aware that an Australian nickname for starting fluid is "Start, ya bastard," as in, "I need a can of start, ya bastard!" I love it! Leave it to the...

    Re: H6 Carb Mounting

    Thanks for the responses. Makes sense.

    The clear plastic spacers with wavy edges and holes drilled that the PO put on the car may have been for the same purpose.

    H6 Carb Mounting

    .
    Speaking of H6 carbs, is there an advantage to installing spacers between HD6 carbs and their manifolds,
    such as those shown (in black) in these pix?

    Good point! It's like all the flavoring settles to the bottom and the first few sips are awful. Yeah, who hasn't been there, done that!

    Good news, thanks! The Austin engine I have in mind is an A90 (in a BN2) and the previous owner modified the shape of the sump and the result is that this car takes 10 quarts to reach the FULL mark...

    Me too. I figure this stuff is getting better with age, and at some point I can make a killing selling it on eBay paired with a great vintage Cabernet.

    Vintage Oil

    So I recently acquired two cases of some apparently vintage Valvoline oil.

    Re: Austin-Healey Parade Cars

    When I drove in the "Parade des Pilotes" I was in a borrowed 3000 roadster - no convertible top or top frame to get in the way, and the "pilote" sat up on the rear shroud. Worked well. I don't...

    I agree. It looks better than homemade. Maybe some long-obsolete kit?

    But wait, there's more! Yes, this BN2 with long-term (57 years) ownership suffered/enjoyed numerous owner-mods. Here are three more that you may not have seen before.

    So at the end of those...

    Yes, just the usual nut, which, when threaded on, would close off that end of the passage, so no "breathing" could go on anyway.

    A few of you are already aware that Kent Lambert (Hood River OR) and I recently bought another project together. I've mentioned it several times on my blog.
