  1. Re: Trying to find an accurate tyre pressure gauge

    Bill - had a look at your jbtools web-site michelin gauge, and it's the same one that I'd found earlier in this process: "Gauge accuracy is +/- 1% plus 0.5 PSI"
    I'm not too hung-up on our LBCs as...
  2. Re: Trying to find an accurate tyre pressure gauge

    Just an update regards my note to Milton: never did hear back as to which (if any) are manufactured offshore or USA; never heard back as to their accuracy. Doug
  3. Which Lucas dynamo does a BJ7 have? A C45??

    We've got our car tucked away for the winter, complete with a noisy dynamo. It's not at all accessible for the next few months and I wasn't smart enough to check which model Lucas dynamo I've got. ...
  4. magnets and gas tanks, and other applications

    The discussion under 'gas cap parts in fuel tank' got me wondering if it would be worthwhile putting a decent sized rare earth magnet on the underside of a fuel tank, below the fuel sender location. ...

    Coroplast Signs under Wheels

    Canada just had a federal election, and there are several zillion signs made out of corrugated plastic being shipped off to be recycled.

    Re: Alternator help - please.

    The genertor on our BJ7 appears to be very unhappy, particularly when first starting it up. Diagnosis was the traditional approach of holding a long screw driver to my ear, and then putting the...

    Re: Gas cap parts now in tank

    For fun (?), try estimating what area that you'd be able to see or sweep when accessing the tank through the sender hole, and then stick a couple of rare earth magnets on the underside of the tank,...

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    Have a look at the AH Spares site: when you check for shock absorber oil, one of the products is Castrol, and the photo shows Castrol Automatic Transmission Fluid TQ-F 1747 1 Litre. Doug

    Re: Seat Foams and recommended interiors?

    My complete mental error. We have a bugeye being brought to life, and that's the vehicle that we installed the wooden 'wedges' under the seat rails to tilt the seat back rearwards and raise the...

    Re: Seat Foams and recommended interiors?

    Our BJ7 has spent pretty much all of its life (since the early 70s) apart, in storage. The seats look okay, although a bit squashed down (only a bit!).
    However, I've got a 3 inch thick chunk of...

  16. Re: Why Would Anyone Butcher a Healey with a V8?

    My perception is that it made sense to pop V8s into crapped out Healeys in the 50s/60s/70s; not so much since then.
    Fun watching the video, and seeing those (relatively) skinny tyres drifting out...

    Haasad recomended ensuring the throttle was wide open when doing a compression test. With the SUs, would it also be appropriate to lift the pistons? Thanks, Doug
