    AH 300O MK1 Choke Knob Position

    On the mark 1 AH 3000 Where is the choke bracket affixed, i took a photo at Ah spares who had a mk1 in their show room photo attached and it seems to be affixed to a bracket , but not sure if this is correct or a after mod, i know on the mark 2 it was in the dash board.
    Anyone with a mark 1 who could advise,
    Mine is now right hand drive the photo is of a left hand assume it would be in the same position?

    Hi Phil. You posted your question in the "FORUM Help" forum. The FORUm Help forum is meant as a place to ask questions about navigating the forum (how to do things like post pictures, quote someone in a reply, etc.). I am moving your post and your question to our "Austin Healey" forum where you are more likely to receive answers to your Healey-specific question. I will leave a pointer in the original forum, but if you're reading this, you are now in the Austin Healey forum.

    That's the original location of the choke knob on a 100-6. On a 3000 Mark 1, if it has a manual choke, the knob is on the dash above the cold air "Pull" knob.

    Hi Phil,
    My 60 BT7 is 4422. I have had it since 1971. The choke was under the dash on my car as in your photo.

    Lin, Yours may have been modified before you got it.

    My '60 BT7 is 4646 built date 15-17 September, 1959 and had the thermo-electric choke when I got it in 1987.
    I promptly removed the thermo-electric and mounted a manual choke as in Phil's picture.

    According to the Clausager book the thermo-electric started with car 2194 and ended with BN7 5234/BT7 5310. When they discontinued the thermo-unit n Nov. 59, they placed the choke in-dash like Steve's picture. It doesn't say for sure but presumably prior to 2194 it was probably under the dash like the 100-6 predecessor.
