    Re: Speedo drive gear

    Speedo calibration is done in the speedometer head, not via the transmission gear. All the transmission speedometer drive gears are the same. You'd need to change the gearing in the head to...

    Re: Speedo drive gear

    The 4.55 rear came in the Morris GPO van. Perhaps check with a speedo from one of those. I have a 4.55 in my bugeye and sent the speedometer out to a specialist (Nissonger in the States) to be...

    Welcome to the site, Anton. Basil will probably be along shortly to move this to the Austin-Healey section. Here is a thread on AC,...

    Re: Redline MTL or equivalent?

    More food for thought. The owners manuals specified 30W Non-Detergent motor oil. The reason given was since there is no filter in the transmission, a non-detergent would allow wear particles to...

    They sure do a lot with a little and in the dark you can't see what's coming up so you everything takes you by surprise.

    Tach Trouble

    The tach with generator tach drive in my bugeye goes from 0 rpm to 1000 rpm when I start the car but won't go any higher no matter how high the engine is revved. Went through the cable and...

    Re: Cost of V8 conversion

    Hi Dave,

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for correcting any of my mistakes on your build. Your post points out that just putting the motor in place is only the beginning of an engine swap. There...

    Re: Cost of V8 conversion

    That's in a Vega. The last year of manufacture for the Vortec 4200 was 2009 so finding one in a Pick-n-pull would probably need a rebuild. It will mount to a Camaro 5 speed. The engine, is all...

    Re: Cost of V8 conversion

    The Vortec isn't so bad once the plastic junk is removed. Nice looking DOHC. The problem is it's a tall engine and in order to fit it under the bonnet I think David had to use a different intake...

    Re: Cost of V8 conversion

    Richard's right. There's a lot of other options besides a V8 and if you go inline 6 you don't have to do the body mods. David Pfaff has used a Chevy Vortec 4200 Atlas motor. Here's the specs:

    Re: Cost of V8 conversion

    Basically a "How long is a string?" question, Steve. I'm guessing a guy with great skills, rebuilding his own motor and transmission, might be able to do it for $5k. A guy paying someone else to do...

    Re: Caving in

    Steve,

    Instead of trying to eke more power out of those lorry motors, drop in a V8 and your passing opportunities will increase immensely. :devilgrin:

    Re: Caving in

    That's a Series I E-Type bezel, available from most of the Jag stockists. When moving my headlight dipper to the dash, I used an extended toggle to make it easier to find in the dark.

    Re: Rendezvous Redux

    Re: Spruce Green Healey 100

    You're right about the interior, Reid. The original-paint car I saw was a low-mileage survivor and the interior color was more "green" than "olive", It didn't exactly match the exterior color,...

    Re: Spruce Green Healey 100

    I've seen both the Jackie Cooper 100S and another original paint 100 in spruce green and I can say that color appears quite different dependent on lighting. It appears quite dark in low light and...
