    Re: 100 bn1/bn2 id

    Yes, and set a new record price for a first-gen Rx-7, too!

    It was an impulse purchase based on low mileage, one owner, outstanding original condition and proximity to where I live. I drove it a...
  2. Re: Longbridge 100-6 Windshield Posts - Body Color or Silver?

    The Anderson-Moment book includes errors; outdated information that is corrected in the Originality Guidelines. You're taking a chance using an obsolete reference, pictures or not.

    Speaking of...
  3. Re: Longbridge 100-6 Windshield Posts - Body Color or Silver?

    The Anderson-Moment book is basically a very outdated edition of the Originality Guidelines. It may hold some attraction as a collector's item in the same way that a 1945 edition of the Farmer's...

    Luckily you'll be able to obtain the Originality Guidelines before the reassembly.

    Re: 100 bn1/bn2 id

    Well, I'm first and foremost a Healey man, but my automotive interests tend ecumenical. I currently own examples of:

    Austin-Healey (100M, '56 BN2 and 2 x '60 Bugeye)
    Alfa Romeo ('67 Duetto)...

    Re: Thread Locker on Shock Bolts?

    Interesting video/advertisement. My takeaway is, "We're all gonna die!"

    Seriously though, since no Healeys (or any other cars?) were made with Nord-Lock washers, and since mostly the cars stay...

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    If your lever-arm shocks are feeling perhaps somewhat worn or even worn out, is it worth trying a little thicker oil in them before throwing in the towel and sending them out for rebuild or...

    Re: 100 bn1/bn2 id

    Mystified that no one has yet asked what the VIN is. Don't see the VIN plate and there's a "shadow" on the firewall and the two screws holes where it was mounted. (Why would it ever have been...

    Re: Healey model and year

    I hope you're not contemplating buying this thing. Or receiving it as a gift.

    If it comes with a payment for hauling it away, hold out for big bucks.

    Re: No Job is Really Simple

    Well, I think as you may have picked up, my comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek and a play on words ("off the streets" when "on the streets" is a car's natural habitat). I'm well aware that for some...

    Hmmm... if your Healey "keeps you off the streets," I think there's something wrong with that picture.

    Re: Yet Another Oil Question!

    That brings up the whole philosophical question about these matters, including additives (for oil and gas).

    The mechanic didn't say anything bad about VR1 or recommend against it. He merely...

    I used VR1 in all of my vintage cars for several years, but on the recommendation of a mechanic friend a couple of years ago I switched to Penn Grade Partial Synthetic (used to be called Brad Penn). ...
  16. Re: Interesting Jalopnik article on BEING TOUGH ON TODAY'S ROADS !!

    I don't know of a kit for that, but I have seen a couple of custom jobs like that done by owners.

    Conversely, there WAS a kit for adding a boot lid, but apart from pictures I've never seen one.

    Re: Fuel pump inertia cutoff switch

    Both 121.5 VHF and 243 UHF are the "guard" frequencies that ELTs broadcast on. A landing would have to be really hard - a crash on the runway, essentially - to set it off. It's meant for really...
