Austin Healey 3000 Newbee

Hi from Ipswich UK I’m new to the forum new and new to the Austin Healey mark. Previous cars include all the usual get to work BMW’s Jaguar’s etc plus 1976 Ferrari 308gt4 a real barn find with engine trouble which turned out to be a valve head broken off from the stem spun round and punched a hole in a piston, repaired it and drove for a couple years, next was a TVR chimaera which was great but sold after two months as I was either going to lose my licence or end up in a ditch neither of which seemed appealing. I’ve now bought a proper car! It’s a 1966 ex New York Austin Healey 3000 Bj8 fresh from a full restoration, engine, gearbox, overdrive and car it looks really nice.
Ive had the car 3 weeks it runs well but idles a little too fast, I have read the forum, as a guest, a few times and the information I found has been excellent, thank you.

Hello Falcoray

Welcome to the forum

Nice find.
I had a hankering for a TVR at one time but could never find one that I could afford.

Hi I’m having problems with a noisy rear dif on my Healey 3000 Bj8, are they normally noisy?
Falcoray, I suggest that if you post this specific question in our Austin Healey forum you are likely to get more answers. Our AH forum is very active, but not all of the AH guys ever check this New Member's intro forum.
