    Re: fan belt change on BJ8

    My BJ8 had a 1/2" belt, but when I changed the crank damper to the Pro/Race unit I had to change it to a 3/8" belt. I had to change the water pump pulley to 3/8" also, but not for the alternator. ...
  2. Re: Healey assembly line - engine installation

    For BJ8s, it was not the body number stamped on the bonnet latch, bonnet hinge flange, and boot lid prop rod attach tab but a number not related to identity of the car. It was a letter, followed by...
  3. Re: Steering column steady brace and scuttle shake?

    I have that piece in my BJ8 and still had scuttle shake. If scuttle shake exists and the piece is missing, the steering column would vibrate more, for sure. What fixed the shake for me was:

    Re: Body Parts Code

    Don't know what that problem is, Tahoe Healey. When I click on the link, it opens a new email message to myself. Did you try typing it into an email yourself?

    Re: fuses

    Wally, it sounds like something is wired incorrectly. Normally, the overdrive is not fused but the pull-in coil in the overdrive solenoid draws a lot of current (about 24A) for a short period of...

    Body Parts Code

    Hello, Healeyphiles -

    During assembly of the bodies of Healeys at Jensen Motors, a number was stamped in three places: on the fixed part of the bonnet latch, just in front of the radiator; on the...
  8. Re: BJ8 Leather interior - what pieces were leather/vinyl

    Someone did notify Heritage, several years ago. I got a call from the honcho at Heritage (forgot his name) who was making the new leather kit for Patrick67BJ8. He argued with me that the rear side...

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    [QUOTE=Bob Hughes;1125136]I found that my shocks squeaked if a bolt was slightly loose. For a banging noise to have occurred, and for the problem to be associated with the bolts, I would imagine that...

    Re: BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    Yes, putting a clamp on the muffler would change its resonant frequency and could work to quiet it down. What kind of clamp would you recommend, Keoke? The restricted space around the muffler would...

    Re: BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    I installed a stainless system after going quickly through two mild steel mufflers (not the original design). In those days, I was driving the car frequently to work -- 3 miles there and three miles...

    Re: BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    Thanks for the response, Steve. I believe it is the inboard muffler that's rattling, but I won't know for sure until I remove it. Assuming that I can find another stainless muffler that I can buy...

    Re: Front Wheel Bearingsknow

    I have a BJ8 and your front bearings may be different, but this is what I got when I changed bearings in 2002:
    Inner bearing: SKF CK-LM67048 (Germany)
    Outer bearing: SKF 11949 (Mexico)

    The...

    BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    I have had a stainless exhaust system from Moss on my BJ8 since 1986. The car has developed a rattling noise under the driver's seat, becoming obnoxiously loud at idle, but not noticeable at speed. ...

    The BMC parts manual for BJ7/BJ8 doesn't show different horns for German-spec cars (or different horns for any other country).

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    Well, when I say they don't leak, they don't "drip" but might seep slowly enough that they require topping up every few years or so, depending on how much the car is driven. The last time I serviced...

    Re: Rear Lever shock, add oil?

    I agree with Bob about loose rear shock mount bolts causing the banging noise when you hit a bump. That happened to me many years ago, and not again after tightening until it occurred during our...
  18. Re: Meaning of the ‘dots’ under the temperature scale?

  19. Re: Removal of Intake and Exhaust manifold. Austin Healey BJ7

    Bryan, whatever you use to paint the exhaust manifolds is not going to last very long anyway due to the high heat. Some people have used barbecue grill paint. For long-term durability, I have found...

    Re: Fan Blade Failure

    I was driving home from work when my fan blade parted company with the hub. I had installed a Moss 6-blade metal fan on my BJ8 on 3 May 1995 (31,590 miles showing on the odometer). On 16 January...
  22. Re: Removal of Intake and Exhaust manifold. Austin Healey BJ7

    Be careful removing the vertical bolts that connect the intake and exhaust manifolds. It's possible to break them off in the blind hole. Go slow, use a lot of penetrant, and when they move turn...

    I noticed while checking the condition of the front wheel bearings ('73 Midget) that there was a greasy mixture of dirt and oil on both disc brake calipers and on the pads. I've...
