    AH 3000 Mk1 BT7 new owner

    It’s been decades since I owned a Healey, but I just a purchased a 1960 big Healey. It is apparently one of the 1,500 cars fitted with HD6 “thermal” carburetors. There is no manual choke, but an auxiliary carburetor to (according to my old Haynes manual) “provide automatically differing degrees of mixture enrichment at:
    a) starting
    b) idling and light cruising conditions
    c) full throttle conditions”

    Searching for information about these is what led me to find BCF. Such forums didn’t exist when I owned Healeys previously, so having additional resources and expertise available is certainly welcome.

    Looking forward to getting to know y’all.

    welcome, glad you are here, that carb sounds very interesting. My Midget had a Zenith water choke - not any more
