As someone else said, and ive said in the past, just get a gmail
account that you just use for this list. Works for me. Easily
searchable. Free. Never have to delete anything.
I didn't see any spam from Richard Pratt.......

Greetings Gentlemen,

I have just started the greatest project of my life, a 100/6 form 1959.
Though I have got some experiences with BMC cars, this would be my first
Big
Healey, which I would like to do as good as I can.

Though I have bought the car last year i could only start it now, and I
am
at the very start now, slowly removing the parts/documenting.

Clifford (Cliff) was first registered in the USA and apperently lived all
in
its life in Texas. After a small front collosion in the ealy 80s, it
stopped, and aited ever since to get back on the road.

It looks like it had an engine transplant, as it has an early mkI 3000
(29D) in the engine bay.

I have got a few questions, if I can ask them...

Greetings:
Gergo Feher

Welcome to the list, as you may have figured out the list strips e-mail
attachments and pictures, if you have questions ask away, we get off
track
from time to time, but I think many are ready for some actual car related

I doubt if any spam filter would keep you from getting this type of
email.
Since the email address was hijacked from a trusted member of this list,
you
would have had to block the sender before his email address was, in fact,
hijacked and who among us would have known before hand that someone was
going to hijack his email address. Kind of like buying boat insurance
thinking that some time in the future you are going to buy a boat.

And, having a Mac might prevent hijacking your own email address but
would
not prevent you from receiving an email from a hijacked source.

Back to Healeys.

They are suitably marked.

Among them are:

Don Hardie's latest batch of Technical items

Home Made Soda Blaster (made one -- it works)

Drive on Ramps (home made -- another winter project.)

Drip Pan Fabrication - Thanks Jim Shope (Winter project for me and
designed
to keep oil off of the garage floor -- very innovative.)

Would like some input on shop car lifts that some of you may have. I like
the
idea of the scissor type as you don't have a post in the way so you can
work
on the exterior and interior, and don't have the ceiling height for a
full
lift. Moss's lift about right but would rather have hydraulic instead of
a
drill to operate it and looking for a place in the northeast to pick it
up.
Any thoughts? Bob 64 phase one 25809

Tail light wire bullets. Are the wires soldered on the end or bent over.

 I have the MaxJax two post lift which is made for home garages. It is
hydraulic, lifts the car a maximum of 48" (enough to roll around on a
wheeled
stool and reach easily), and will lift 6000 lbs. It bolts to the garage
floor
and the posts can be rolled away and stored if necessary. I have mine
installed in the smaller bay of the garage, and, if I park close to one
post,
there is still walking room to the house door. So, I can leave it in
place
all the time.

I got it on sale for $1000 with free shipping to Rochester, NY from
California.

Feel free to ask questions.   I could send some pics.

The ones on our (mostly) original BN2 were bent over.   Exposed wire was
just long enough to be bent back and almost
reach the base of the connector.

Great stuff John.

BTW I have been trying to contact the guy who is making the Trafalgar
glass
bottles but he hasn't responded. Not sure why, he might just be busy as
he
runs an aircraft maintenace firm in France. I know he thought the
printing
on the lids was not up to standard as well as some of the bottles not
being
100%. He'd found a glass maker to re do the bottles but not sure about
the
tops. I'll keep trying.

regards

Derek

Gergo -

Almost all of the Austin vehicles shared most, and in some cases, all of
the components of the Austin suspension. Kingpins, A-arms, hubs, etc.
In
the day a common upgrade for the 100 was to bolt on the larger drum
brakes
from an A90 Atlantic Saloon.

Suspension of the 100 & 3000 is virtually identical to the suspensions
they
put in the A90 Atlantic, the A40, the A70, etc., etc., I would suspect
the
A110 used the same suspension too.

I'm sure if John Harper is lurking, he can comment further.

Thats nice. I realy liked the suspension of the Cab. Though it was by far
not "sporty". I think after the WWII, it was a realy rationnal move to
use
the same parts.
It is good to hear, as I have made nice contacts for the suspension
parts+have many items laying somewhere in my storage.

Time to bring out the Service Parts books to actually compare the
component
parts. I think you will find that in most cases, though the design is
identical, the British were famous for making the parts slightly
different,
enough to NOT be interchangeable. Shock arms and lower suspension A arms
that have different angles, etc. come immediately to mind. Even BN1 lower
arms are different from the BN2 and beyond.

What one has to bear in mind here was that for the introduction of the
A90 Westminster almost all the original Austin designed parts were
modified. Mostly they were beefed up. One has to remember that most
parts were first introduced on the A40 and then used on the much heavier
and more powerful A70 and A90 Atlantic. As items such as the suspension
was destined for larger cars and medium size commercial vehicles there
was a real need for strengthening.

So we have the BN1 with the Austin A40 etc. suspension and the BN2 on,
with the BMC Westminster stronger items. This was the time that for
example the bottom links were cranked up and UNF threads introduced.
There was however the strange period when later BN1s had the Austin
front suspension and the BMC rear axle.

The FX4 Taxi used the BMC units and just as an example the bottom front
spring pan will fit the early BN1's but is made of thicker material. One
example of strengthening. Another example was the rear hubs. Using these
on early BN1s was pushing the strength almost to the limit. The
replacement on the BN2 and onwards was much heavier and if my memory
serves me correctly was last used on a large delivery van after A-H
production has ceased.

Having said all this it is important not to get the two timeframes
muddled up. Many parts look very similar until one gets them close
together or tries to fit them.

I am not aware of anybody previously have done this and would like to
know more. I am doing this but I have had to have made special front
hubs to that the spokes clear the 2 1/4" drums and fit spacer rings
behind the rear hub extensions.

The reason is that the car originally had 1 3/4" alfin drums that were
corroded and looked unsafe. Perhaps unjustified but I did not feel that
the new alfins available were safe either. In any case they were very
expensive.

Everything now fits together and looks OK but I have to admit that I
have yet to road test this set up because the rest of the car is not
quite ready.

If you know anybody else who has carried out this conversion I would
like to make contact.

Gosh, you're right, Don, I did pay $2000 for the MaxJax.   Must have been
wishful thinking.

Also, you might be interested in how I paid for the lift. I applied to
New
York State unclaimed funds, and, after some months, received two checks
amounting to just over $2000. Hallelujah! Here's the link for the New
York
site (I imagine all states have the service)
http://www.osc.state.ny.us/ouf/index.htm

There is no cost for the service.

Last spring we purchased a hydraulic scissors lift from Total Tool in
Castleton-on-Hudson, NY (Albany area) after looking at the one on display
at
the Rhinebeck, NY, car show.   This one was made by Quality Lifts
(Louisville, KY -- but TT website currently lists only one made by Mohawk
--
maybe they've changed brands?) Width between outer edges of lift
framework
is 39-1/2", so any post-war British car can drive over it--but we did
have
to make 3" thick ramps out of some 10' 2x8s left over from house
construction so our MGB-GT's exhaust system would clear the swing-out
arms
when driving over the unit (it has no more ground clearance than a
Healey).
The lift locks at heights from 2 to 5 feet, and so far we're pleased with
it, though we haven't used it a great deal (summer is outdoor, not
workshop,
time here in northeastern PA). The lift is heavy and does take some
effort
to roll around on the floor (you'd need a trailer to pick it up
yourself--but Total Tool assembles and tests each lift and then delivers
it
and gives operating instructions.) Website: Total-Tool.com; our
sales rep. was Chris Holmes (800) 677-8685.

  winter in the workshop)

My BT7 engine is bored 40 over. I see on ahead4healeys' site that they
have
.60 over piston and ring sets.
I have always feared what would happen if I ever had to rebuild my engine
again?
So the question is can I use .60 over pistons safely in my 29D street
engine, if need be?
With around 30K on the engine, I hope this will not be an issue during my
lifetime, but just in case......
Thanks

Ira,
I think you worry too much.   My BT7 turned 50 in August. The engine has
never been out of the car.    I do not baby my Healey, I drive it
spiritedly
when I can. I consistently    do well in autocrosses, and the car has been
driven all over the country   in the 26 years I have owned it. I use 20/50
Valvoline racing oil and it   still doesn't smoke from having over 115,000
miles on it. 30,000 miles?     It is just getting broken in. Just drive it
and have fun.

Ira,
These engines can be rebuilt many times over the years if need be. Boring
to
+.060" oversize is acceptable, then if need be, they can be sleeved back
to
standard size and start all over again. Theoretically our grandchildren
will
still be able to put the miles on these engines.

Message-ID: <032a01cb9275$0e278110$2a768330$@verizon.net>
I have had several requests about the drip pans. Great idea and I am
going
to do it. The stock can be found at Home Depot. They sell 12 by 12 sheets
of
galvanized steel and aluminum of various gauges. Five bucks or so. I
have
added this information to the PDF on the site.

As usual, great comments and advice, concern born from hitting a rock
with
oilpan when I had around 6000 miles on the engine, spinning a crank
journal
and scoring a cylinder wall requiring me to bore out again......

Ira,
I have the Denis Welch 85mm cosworth pistons in my BJ8. That's approx
65 thou oversize
Many healeys in Australia have Volvo pistons to get 3.3 litres ie well
over 120 thou oversize.
I used to have a Sprite with Hillman imp pistons - again well over 120
thou oversize.
BMC blocks have quite thick walls.
If your block is at 40 thou, don't worry, it has plenty of birthdays
left...
;-)

Hi John,

Clifford - or Cliff comes from the fact that this car lived in
Texas/Dallas.
My favorite character from the "Dallas" series I have seen many years ago
was Cliff Barnes, who looked like a loser, but at the end won everithing.

Ira,

in the end you (or more likely your kids) could use cylinder liners and
start from standard size with the pistons. Just a thought in case you
were worrying (sorry, wondering) about the time your grandchildren will
inherit the car.

Eric


What me worry?
Just wondering, not really worrying. My kids want to inherit the car, so
just looking our for them, like a good dad :)

Gergo,

There was a black caulking type of substance applied to the top edge of
the
under scuttle steel to attempt to effect an air tight seal when the
shroud
was installed. If it's still the original stuff, a careful but steady
pressure applied to the left and right edges adjacent to the firewall
will
eventually pop the shroud free. DO NOT pull from the front of the car or
you'll cause a very substantial fold in the metal long before it lets go.
I've never had to resort to heat, but the steady firm pressure (not
beating
or hitting) will cause it to let go without damage. I usually use a block
of
wood along the under edge of the shroud with firm upward levering
pressure
off the top of the A post supporting gusset panel.

Kilmartin Automotive Sheetmetal makes the best of all these items, but
you
need to check to see if their outer sills are the correct sweeping curve,
and not straight. Most people miss the fact that the bottom edge of the
doors and the outer rocker panels have a sweeping compound curve to them,
continuing from the front wing lower edge. Don't let anybody sell you
straight ones.
Certainly the ones marketed by AH Spares have the proper curve.

use a heat gun to 'peel up' from one side; be sure to either leave the
tar or
use butyl electricans tape{ made for self vulcanizing} when re-
installing;
  the
purpose of all this stuff is to prevent galvanic corroding of the
aluminum
(dissimiliar metals---acts as sacrificial anode).

Further to my earlier reply (see below) I apologize for not suggesting a
source. I purchase these items from Autofarm, here in Ontario. They
should
have all in stock and ready to ship.

Kilmartin Automotive Sheetmetal makes the best of all these items, but
you
need to check to see if their outer sills are the correct sweeping curve,
and not straight. Most people miss the fact that the bottom edge of the
doors and the outer rocker panels have a sweeping compound curve to them,
continuing from the front wing lower edge. Don't let anybody sell you
straight ones.
Certainly the ones marketed by AH Spares have the proper curve.

Yes, there are still some spam messages from hijacked email accounts
getting through now and then. I've been working on the issue a bit,
but it is turning out to be a case of 'shipwright's disease' as we
know it, applied to computers. If you don't know what I am talking
about, check out
http://www.team.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=32


Basically to tighten up security and improve a few things I'm planning
on updating the operating system and all the user level programs that
Team.Net uses. Not a small undertaking, but well within my abilities.
Currently there is no budget for hardware upgrades, perhaps after the
spring fund drive. Of course, if you haven't yet spent all your loot
on holiday gifts and such and wanted to donate [ link below ] I would
not complain ;-)

The process will take a fair bit of time over who knows how many late
nights at the keyboard. With luck it will all be unnoticed by you
folks, transparent to the user, as they say. But there is always a
chance of service not being available for some period of time,
hopefully no more than minutes at a time. It could be something
simple, like a stupid typo in a config file, or it could be one of the
cats jumping the the keyboard as I go to fetch some more refrehments
and somehow managing to hit the CONFIRM REFORMAT OF ALL DISKS button.

 I remember what it was like when the ISP I was using for the DSL line
went belly up and Team.Net was off the air for 8 days - not a good
thing. Actually, I wonder what the up vs. down time percentages might
be over the last 19 years and 7 months of Team.Net. I won't count the
years before that when I ran it from the U of U.

Anyway, short story is if Team.Net disappears at times over the
next few weeks, don't panic, I'll be working on it.

Many years ago I sent for the Heritage certificate for my BT7 tricarb
HBT7L
18718. This was back in 1983 when the BMIHT certificate was on a piece of
paper that cost me a whole $5.00, but that's another issue.
Anyway it listed the Healey Blue car as being dispatched complete with
Black
hardtop, but there were no hardtop numbers listed.
I found it interesting that they were clamping hardtops to these last
tricarbs and getting them shipped over here for distribution as these
hardtops were about to become orphans as the new BJ7 "Sports
Convertibles"
were already in production by then.

Ira, I'm a bit skeptical here. I know there's a lot of meat in those
Austin
blocks, but I would like some confirmation from someone, or two, down
under
that they have actually bored out their 3000 engine 120 thousandths (.120
inches) without having any issues.

My BN7 Tri-Carb (#18014) came through as a Ivory White with Red interior
and a
BLUE hardtop. Very patriotic! :-)
The hardtop was listed that way on the factory build sheet (& Heritage
certificate) but was not on the car when the original owner bought the
car
from the Chicago dealer.

I've put a black hardtop on it.

Here`s a question to the 100/6 experts.
Some 100/6 cars were fitted with engines prefix 26C, not 1C-H or 26D.
Does anyone know about them. We have about 10 on the UK register and we
couldn`t find anything in the books about them.
Would be great to have an answer on this.

G'day Josef

In my list of Austin-Healeys in Australia there are 27 100/6 BN4s with
engine numbers starting with 26C out of a total of 158 cars (100/6).

In my car (BN3/1) the engine number starts with C26W which stands for
C-series, 2.6 litre and W-Wolseley.

It is a very early engine supplied by BMC to the Donald Healey Motor
Company
to see how it would fit into the Austin-Healey. As we know that once
fitted,
it provided inferior performance than the 2.6 litre 4-cylinder. That was
fixed by working the cylinder head and fitting triple dual-throat DU-6
SUs.

I have copies of certs for 700 cars in the BJ8 registry, but only one
that
lists a hardtop. It just says "Hard top" and gives no serial number.
The
cert also says in Other Information: "This car was finished in a special
one-off colour scheme [my note: Silver Grey, with trim that was Red,
with
White Piping]. A hard top was not normally available for convertible
Models"

In the production records factory hardtops are only listed as one of the
extras without any serial number. As far as I remember there is just a
mark
"HT" in the production book for the specific car.
So the registrars at BMIHT have no source to find any hardtop serial
number.

Thanks Rich,

It may be a bit cold in my garage, but I was unable to release the panel
only by trying to lift it. No problem how long I did it. I am afraid of

Does anyone know the application of Churchill tool S337?



Is there a link on the 'net to Churchill toll numbers?



Thanks,

Thanks fro the help. With a bit of heating and continous pressure I had
managed to remove the front shroud. I will do a "website" today and put
some
pics on.
Still collecting my questions.

Got an email from Google today. They are upgrading their security system
and
asked me verify my login, password, and email address.

Gee, I thought they knew it.

BTW, I have started getting phone calls telling me that I have won a
lottery
that I haven't entered.

Parts are all gone. Sorry I wasn't responding here, I wasn't watching the
list closely. But, I'm glad to report that they went to a happy Healey
owner from here on the list - and hopefully will help out.

Hi,

I have proceeded with the dismantling of the Healey. I feel very lucky
yet
as the body in my opinion is v-e-r-y good.
I have removed the cylinder head also just to get a hint of the engine.
Well, it is far from new, but still it is a std bore early 3000. The
cylinders are well worn though soo they will need 1st oversize pistons.

If intrestead take a look at austinhealey.fw.hu

Have a nice Sunday:

G'day Gergo



The Wolseley 25HP is a pre WW2 car. The C-series engine was designed and
built by Morris Engines (for BMC) as their mainstay engine during the
early
1950s. It was fitted to the majority of the BMC marques including Austin,
Morris, Wolseley, Riley, Van Den Plas and Austin-Healey.



Depending on what marque an engine was destined for, dictated what prefix
it
received. The engine in my car was taken from the engine production line
during a run of engines for Wolseleys, taken to the DHMC for their
experimental work and fitted to my car.

Hi,



Is this 2.6 "Wolseley" engine the same as the one fitted to the Wolseley
25HPs?



Gergo

2010/12/4 Patrick and Caroline Quinn <p_cquinn at tpg.com.au>

G'day Josef

In my list of Austin-Healeys in Australia there are 27 100/6 BN4s with
engine numbers starting with 26C out of a total of 158 cars (100/6).

In my car (BN3/1) the engine number starts with C26W which stands for
C-series, 2.6 litre and W-Wolseley.

It is a very early engine supplied by BMC to the Donald Healey Motor
Company
to see how it would fit into the Austin-Healey. As we know that once
fitted,
it provided inferior performance than the 2.6 litre 4-cylinder. That was
fixed by working the cylinder head and fitting triple dual-throat DU-6
SUs.

Here`s a question to the 100/6 experts.
Some 100/6 cars were fitted with engines prefix 26C, not 1C-H or 26D.
Does anyone know about them. We have about 10 on the UK register and we
couldn`t find anything in the books about them.
Would be great to have an answer on this.

Gergo,

Overall, it looks quite sound and should make a great base for your
restoration. It's worlds away from some of the rot boxes that people
have
started with as the supply of project cars has dwindled. Best of luck
with
your restoration.

Happy Healeydays,

Rick

Good luck Ira,

I've been looking for those for a long time, both the wide ones for the
later 6 cylinder cars, and the narrower rounded ones for the Hundred. The
repros are really a hit and miss proposition. Some come through pretty
good,
with the correct little stainless steel rivet at 12 o'clock, and others
without the rivet. Also repro chrome finish quality can vary from okay to
totally unacceptable. N.O.S. is certainly the answer if you can find
them.

We got a phone call a while back. The caller said it had to do with the
fact that we shopped at KMart or Walmart, I forget which. He knew our
name
and address. He wanted to deliver a significant amount of money to us at
9:00 o'clock the next morning. He said that he would be accompanied by
nine
FBI agents to confirm his legitimacy. I told him to bring cash, not a
check, and that I would have our local police here, also. Darn! I'm
still
waiting for him to show up. Christmas is just around the corner and we
could use the money.    ;-) Ho Ho Ho!

As a data point, I located a NOS set about 6 years ago in Lucas boxes
that did not have the rivet. I know the source I bought these from
and am certain that repros were not slipped in their place. While I
agree that the rivet would be more correct, it was also not always
present in the Lucas spares.

Ira,
Its better to look for two similar ones, as also original rims differ.
When
they are from lets say an early 100/6 they are really much different in
shape
to BJ8 ones. You see it, when you put two together.

Good luck Ira,

I've been looking for those for a long time, both the wide ones for the
later
6 cylinder cars, and the narrower rounded ones for the Hundred. The
repros are
really a hit and miss proposition. Some come through pretty good, with
the
correct little stainless steel rivet at 12 o'clock, and others without
the
rivet. Also repro chrome finish quality can vary from okay to totally
unacceptable. N.O.S. is certainly the answer if you can find them.

Hello,



Two years ago I bought a BN6 and I would like to know something about the
history of the Healey in USA.

The Healey was exported to San Francisco in July 1958 and came back in
the
UK in the late months of 1993.

Following the data:

Car/chassis number                           BN6-L/1570

Engine number                                 26D-RU-H/64687

Body number                                     1089

Specification                                     LHD, North American
Export

Color                                                    Healey Blue

Date build                                             17-25 June 1958

Date despatched                               16 July 1958

Destination                                         San Francisco, USA

Other numbers                                  Key Number: FP.630



Maybe someone can give me some information. Thank you very much in
advance.



Kind regards

Hallo Dirk!
Thank you for the 100/Six inquiry. I do the Registry for both the BN4 &
BN6. I have the records for all the US and have received files from
England,
Germany, Netherlands, etc.
I do not have your car in my files. The closest is BN6 1570 in New
Hampshire and then BN6 1603 in Texas. With this information from you, I
will add
you and the car into the Registry. Information is kept confidential.


An explanation of the VIN is: A is for the smaller size engines and all
Sprites start with an A. B is for the big Healeys. The next letter N is
describing it as a Roadster. They used a J for Convertibles, however
something
got screwed up along the way and there were cars with BT. The 4
indicates it
was the Fourth design in production. The L is for Left hand drive as
were
90% of the cars manufactured. The remaining number is a serial number
and
doesn't have much logic. There built MGA's along with the BN4's so I'm
sure
number were interchanged.
A good site for information on the cars is:

_http://www.healeysix.net/_ (http://www.healeysix.net/)                (A French
Owner's Site)




Here is another good site for information on the 100/Six.

You can order a certificate with the details on your exact car.                    Go to

     It appears that Lucas used this same part number for quite a long
time.
We had some NOS rims in sealed boxes with this part number and although
they
were the correct shape, they had no rivet. I did hear that very late
BJ8's
did not have the rivet, but have not been able to confirm that, one way
or
the other. We sold a pair to an owner on the west coast who was
restoring a
BJ8 and his old rims had no rivet. No one could be sure that these were
original to the car or replacements though.
Cheers.......Bob

I received a few e-mails asking me where the serial number is stamped.
Thought I would share with the group. The alum trim is stamped in the

up.
It maybe partially covered by the door seal.
My one hardtop is stamped 4/259144 (four seater/ Feb., 1959, serial

144). My other is stamped 0633743 - this one is confusing??
I sent my 1959 hardtop info to Rudy Streng for the BN4 registry.
Maybe a factory hardtop registry is in order? Wonder how many were made/

Ok, you got me thinking about the BT7 hardtop I have sitting in the
basement and went to look at the serial numbers and they don't match what
you suggested the numbers to be. My serial number is C/0858140.

   I may also be ready to sell it if someone somewhat local is interested.
It needs restoration, but is complete including the rear window. There
is
no headliner, but all the brackets and brightware is attached, and it
does
need a sanding and a repaint, but has no cracking from what I see and
would
be a great starting point. I can send pictures if you're interested.

It would seem that I have hit upon the Holy Grail part for my car. I
easily
found one complete nos headlights assembly. I now know how lucky I
was....
There has to be a nos rim out there somewhere. It might take a knights
templar.......

Josef,

There are actually 2 part numbers for the 6 cylinder cars which
explains your findings. Up until late 59, the part number was 556234,
and the 60- was 54520673. Note the earlier number also fit the Austin
A95's.

We are fitting the boot lid on my BT7. It seems to be sitting a bit high
between the hinges, and we have not yet installed the seal. Is there any
way
to adjust the fit? It also seems to need movement left and right to
center
it.
Thanks again,

All four fenders and beads have been fitted. Engine compartment detailing
continues. Running lights installed, and we are just about ready to
install
armacord in the boot.

Hello Ira; According to my 1965 & 1966 BMC Fast Moving Parts List and
its
cross-reference, there were three rims for the Big Healey.

Model             BMC                   Lucas
100                17H5143            554440
100-6              37H5530            556234
3000               37H5530            556234
3000 BJ7
(c)18764          57H5018           54520673
BJ8                 57H5018           54520673


Hope this at least helps in identifying the rims. Now you have to find a
NOS
or quality replacement rim. Good luck in your search.

Message-ID: <000a01cb94f5$f53a7b20$dfaf7160$@com>

To all,



I am selling my 1960 Austin Healey Speedwell Sprite. I purchased this car
from Tom Colby out at Speedwell Engineering about 10 years ago. This is a
California car, never wrecked and never rusted. It was vintage raced out
on
the West Coast.



The car has a Speedwell Monza bonnet with alloy shrouding to the
radiator.
It has an extremely well crafted roll bar, with side intrusion bars, but
still can fit a soft or hard top to the car. It is, for the most part,
street legal, although wipers will need to be fitted to the car. It has a
Fuel Safe cell built into a stock Sprite tank in the original location.
It
has a central fire extinguisher system installed. The car sits on
Panasport
wheels. It needs new tires, and they are included with the sale. It has a
Mota Lita steering wheel. A soft top and side curtains are included. A
very
solid, restorable Bugeye bonnet is included with the car. A factory hard
top
is also offered for an additional cost.



Current motor is a fresh 948, with flat top piston, a 295 casting head,
and
a BMC factory "649" cam, with a cast header, with the exhaust tucked up
in
the pan, exiting through a Super Trap muffler.



The car is priced to sell. See

My engine is bored 160 over (to a 3.2ltr)..... mind you, i had the
engine sonic tested and some of the bores are offset.

My point being that 60 over if carefully done is no problem.

I seem to recall that BMC, as everything was going tits up in the
early 80s, was selling parts as "OEM" through the dealers but in fact
were simply substituting common parts that would fit any car, e.g. MGB
headlamp rims being sold for Healeys. This would explain the missing
rivet. Technically they were OEM, and they fit, they just weren't
quite the correct part.

On the original headlamps, the rivet holds a metal clip inside the
headlamp
ring which secures the top of the ring to the fender and shroud. The ring
is attached to the body by clipping the ring to the top, then swinging
the
bottom down and in place and securing it with a large screw up through
the
bottom of the ring. The fakes rely just on the edge of the headlamp ring
rim to
hold it in place. Obviously, when they were doing replacements, someone
figured out that you could delete two components and the labor necessary
to
secure them in place by simply faking the rivet. I'd be prepared to
believe
that this was actually done by BMC in the later stages of supplying
replacement
parts, rather than some much later copycat manufacturer duplicating an
original part. That's why it doesn't surprise me that someone found an
NOS part
in an original box with the dimple. Just because it's NOS doesn't mean
it's
OEM (original equipment manufacturer) spec.

Subject: [Vintage-race] Speedwell Sprite for sale

To all,



I am selling my 1960 Austin Healey Speedwell Sprite. I purchased this car
from Tom Colby out at Speedwell Engineering about 10 years ago. This is a
California car, never wrecked and never rusted. It was vintage raced out
on
the West Coast.



The car has a Speedwell Monza bonnet with alloy shrouding to the
radiator.
It has an extremely well crafted roll bar, with side intrusion bars, but
still can fit a soft or hard top to the car. It is, for the most part,
street legal, although wipers will need to be fitted to the car. It has a
Fuel Safe cell built into a stock Sprite tank in the original location.
It
has a central fire extinguisher system installed. The car sits on
Panasport
wheels. It needs new tires, and they are included with the sale. It has a
Mota Lita steering wheel. A soft top and side curtains are included. A
very
solid, restorable Bugeye bonnet is included with the car. A factory hard
top
is also offered for an additional cost.



Current motor is a fresh 948, with flat top piston, a 295 casting head,
and
a BMC factory "649" cam, with a cast header, with the exhaust tucked up
in
the pan, exiting through a Super Trap muffler.



The car is priced to sell. See

If the car has already been painted then you have a difficult task.
Adjustments/ test fits should be made during bodywork. The seal will
probably
just make the miss fit even worse. If it isn't too bad then you might
just
have to live with it. Most boot lids on Healeys have a fit that is much
less
then perfect. Shifting the holes a bit can give you some side to side
fit.
Being high in the middle sounds like bodywork.

We are fitting the boot lid on my BT7. It seems to be sitting a bit high
between the hinges, and we have not yet installed the seal. Is there any
way
to adjust the fit? It also seems to need movement left and right to
center
it.
Thanks again,

All four fenders and beads have been fitted. Engine compartment detailing
continues. Running lights installed, and we are just about ready to
install
armacord in the boot.

Gary,
I am surprised that you as an editor are using assumptions to make
your case, but since I am not, I think I will. I should start off by
saying that I am a "have-not" and deeply suffer from the rivet envy
because of the emphases placed on it from the "haves". While mine is
without, it is still a NOS high quality chrome OEM part that is a
correct fit and as it has the same part number as the lucas
replacement parts list for a 60-61 year model, which also matches the
62-67 part number on 2 different Lucas catalogues that I have in my
possession. So, if they got it wrong, they got it wrong on at least 2
accounts.

With that said, I have since learned that the convertibles may have
been supplied with non riveted rims, which would demand a different
part number. It makes sense that the replacement catalogues would
consider issuing an "updated" part if it fits an earlier model. But
why not make this the same for the 100/6 and the early 3000s that have
a different part number? Maybe there is something on these cars that
will not fit with the newer rims. In researching the part numbers for
the other components tied to the rim, I have found the following:

The 1960- do not have a dust excluder
The light retaining plate (which I believe is where the rim is
affixed) is the same for the 100s and 100/6 and pre 60 3000s, but
different for the 60-61 cars and yet different again for the 62- cars.

It is the latter finding that substantiates why the pre-60 cars may
need a different rim to fit "properly", hence the different numbers.
Or maybe they fit properly with all other parts changed since the
shrouds were interchangeable.

I should also add that from the "Mechanical Service Parts
List" (series BJ7 and BJ8) there are 6 pages front and back dedicated
to headlamp assemblies. And for the North American models, BMC lists
a different part number for the rims (57H 5018) as the others (37H
5530). Since I do not have a parts list for the BN7 and BT7 series, I
would inquire for someone to fill in this blank.

So, on behalf of the other "have-nots", I am making the following
appeal for concourse revisions:
When judging for the rivet, the pre 60 cars should have one, yet the
60-67 cars should be given a bye to either "have" or "have-not" unless
someone can prove differently as there was most obviously a transition
point that no-one has yet to define. And if that occurs, you still
have to give credence to the fact that pulling boxes off the shelf
could have gone in any assortment until all riveted stock was depleted.

Interesting comments. People make assumptions all the time to fill in the
gaps when recorded history is insufficient to provide exact answers. The
only
harm is when people overlay known fact with assumptions that suit their
interpretation of history -- as seems to be the case in politics these
days --
What we try to do with the concours standards is to make assumptions and
label them as such, if we're aware that there is an issue, until we have
more
facts.

But, you make an interesting point regarding possibilities for changes in
the headlamp rim. If other changes were being made that might have
permitted
the supplier to make a cost-saving change in the headlight rim during
production, then dimpled headlight rims should be found on all of the
last run
of
convertibles. All of them. So, the question to people who own phase II
Mark
IIIs is: do you have dimples or real rivets with snap brackets on the
back?

If we could establish that the all of the last convertibles produced had
the dimples rather than the rivets, then our question would shift to when
the
change point occurred, and we could modify the standards to indicate that
such a change appears to have taken place, but we don't know when.

Is there anyone on this list with a late unrestored convertible -- say,
built in 1966 -- that has riveted headlamp rims?
Thanks

reminds me of my car=
FYI: when you get the fit perfect and before paint,
drill 2 small holes in each
hinge and lid support to INDEX the location of
the 2 tightened-bolts on each
side. Use pins or needles,etc in small (I meant
'small') holes whenever you
reassemble after paint. Saves lots of T&E and lid
is again in perfect location
w/o paint scrapes. Can fill holes with matching
Crayolas if concourse.

Hi Gary and all:

I have a "have" '66 with rivet-type headlight rims.
BUT . . . but .   .   . the car was redone by Forintune in the early 80's.

So, are the headlight rims original to the car.   Maybe.   Maybe not.

Unfortunately there are no numbers on the 4 sets of rims I have. A
pair with the rivets and spring clips, a pair with the rivets and no
spring clips, a pair that someone re-chromed and buffed the rivets off
and a pair with dimples.
Looks like someone needs to find a good replica of the rivets so they
can be added after chroming. They look like brass that has been
chromed. It would be a snap to add them to the dimpled rings.

Relax Chris,
  I only said I was "skeptical" and asked about "having any issues" with
boring
out to 120 thou. I'm not challenging your statements so don't get your
knickers in a twist. I Just wanted some additional information. In the
good
ole USA, we - I mean "SCCA" (Sports Car Club of America) - only allow 30
thou
max. overbore. So I don't have a lot of personal experience with
overboring
engines in the 120 to 200 thou zone.
As for the Aussies whooping the American's asses a few years back, I
would
like to sum up my impression of that series with a statement I made to
Phil
Coombs on the eve of the very first event at Road America, in 2005, after
I
had surveyed the Australian Healeys in the paddock.    " I think I have
come to
a gun fight with only a knife."
In spite of that statement, I still whooped a lot of Aussie ass!!!! Do
you??

My BJ8 (36666) was built 6 June 1966 and has the riveted headlamp rims.
They were on the car when I bought it in 1984, and since the car has not
suffered any accidents, I have no reason to believe they are not
original.
They appear original to me.

The BMC parts manual for BJ7 and BJ8 specifies Rim Assembly P/N 57H 5018
for
all North American cars, while all other cars got P/N 37H 5530.   There
is
no definition of what makes one part number different from the other. It
seems sort of odd that a supplier would delete the riveted attachment to
save production costs, then add the dimple which would certainly add cost
for no benefit.

These kinds of configuration questions remind me of the issue with the
dash-mounted rear view mirror. According to the parts manual, BJ7s and
Phase 1 BJ8s got the all-stainless/chrome rectangular mirror, while all
Phase 2 BJ8s got the more oval-shaped mirror with the black plastic back.
My car has always had the earlier style mirror (photos from 1969 show it
installed as early as that), and in the BJ8 registry I have a record of
160
Phase 2 BJ8s with the earlier mirror. I only record the dash mirror type
when I see it personally on a car or in photos. Some of those might be
replacements, but I think it very unlikely that all of them are. Anyway,
it
seems more probable to me that a replacement would be the same type as
the
one that was there before if both are available. On the other hand, I
bet
there have been a lot of original early mirrors on Phase 2 BJ8s replaced
with the later style because the parts manual said the originals were
"incorrect".

My '62 tri-carb (fairly late top-shift) has it's original headlight rings
with rivets - no clips in evidence, just the rivets in the holes.

My very late BJ8 is the same - rivets, no clips. I believe that both
rings
are original to the car, but can't swear to it. When it was taken apart
for
restoration, there was no evidence anywhere on the front end of accident
damage, hence the assumption. The restoration is (finally!) almost
complete - we rechromed and re-installed the rings.

Any takers for a headlamp ring with SS rivet and clip? It is usable,
chrome not perfect, a bit dull but no rust, a few small scratches, small
dent near the bottom, out of sight when fitted, very small dent at 3
o'clock which can easily be pressed out with some care.
I think it was taken from an AH, but I am not absolutely sure.

Free but for the shipping.
Next week it will be binned.

Not sure if that would work anyway.

Adjustments/ test fits should be made during bodywork. The seal will
probably
just make the miss fit even worse. If it isn't too bad then you might
just
have to live with it. Most boot lids on Healeys have a fit that is much
less
then perfect. Shifting the holes a bit can give you some side to side
fit.
Being high in the middle sounds like bodywork.

?I have an original '67 BJ8 built in late September of 1966 approx. 400
from
the end. I am the third owner and it only has 30,000 miles and has never
been messed with other than one repaint. It HAS rivets. Just weighing

Interesting comments. People make assumptions all the time to fill in the
gaps when recorded history is insufficient to provide exact answers. The
only
harm is when people overlay known fact with assumptions that suit their
interpretation of history -- as seems to be the case in politics these
days --
What we try to do with the concours standards is to make assumptions and
label them as such, if we're aware that there is an issue, until we have
more
facts.

But, you make an interesting point regarding possibilities for changes in
the headlamp rim. If other changes were being made that might have
permitted
the supplier to make a cost-saving change in the headlight rim during
production, then dimpled headlight rims should be found on all of the

Message-ID: <4CFF25D4.5050605@iinet.net.au>

Hi listers

I have a query re my BN1 first gear and synchro, the synchro cone and
coupling adaptor were loose on the splines which allowed the units to
slide about 6-8 mm away from the gear. We removed the worn cone and plan
on replacing it with a new cone using the recommended method as per the
manual. The coupling adaptor looks to be in perfect condition as does
the first motion shaft and gear. When I press the coupling adaptor onto
the spline in preparation to fit the cone, it has the same 6-8 mm
movement when the shoulder is pressed against the gear (ie it is not a
press fit right up to the gear). My question is will the shrink fit of
the new cone be sufficient to hold the coupler tight against the gear or
should we either get a new coupler or use some form of adhesive or
silver solder to secure?

thanks

Ira:

Have you inadvertently interchanged the right and left boot lid hinges? -
they are sloped slightly differently. That might be contributing to the
mis-fit problem. There should be enough play in the hinge mounting holes
to
make slight side to side and fore and aft adjustments to the lid in the
opening. I usually do this and the latch adjustment after the seal and
the
three buffers are fitted.

reminds me of my car=
FYI: when you get the fit perfect and before paint,
drill 2 small holes in each
hinge and lid support to INDEX the location of
the 2 tightened-bolts on each
side. Use pins or needles,etc in small (I meant
'small') holes whenever you
reassemble after paint. Saves lots of T&E and lid
is again in perfect location
w/o paint scrapes. Can fill holes with matching
Crayolas if concourse.

My unrestored 66 only had one headlight rim, just dug it out of the
garage and
and it just has the real rivet (no dimple) with no bracket, be it a
slightly
wider but less pronounced domed rivet than the reproductions I have put
on it.
The quality of the original? including rivet seems far superior, I cant
see
any makers / or part numbers on it.

Gary: HBJ8L39031, Built 10-17 Nov 1966, dispatched 16 Mar 1967. Rivets.
JUST rivets. No clips at top. The rim hangs on the bucket at the top
with a
single screw securing the bottom. Now that you made me look, I find that
I
do not have, and do not recall ever having, the Seal, rim to bucket (Moss
280-120), in there. Looks like this research is going to end up costing
me
money!   ;-(

As I said Richard, my personal experience is:

1. A 1100cc sprite engine bored to take 68mm Hillman Imp pistons (~220
thou overbore).
That engine gave over 10 years of reliable service until a circlip broke,
and scored the bore. I still have that engine in storage.
I also had a 948 blocked bored to the same size.

2. My old 100/4 had Holden based pistons. That made it a ~3 litre
100/4 (~200 thou overbore).
That car/ engine is now owned by another active member on this list,
who has sleeved the block back to standard.

3. As I said, my BJ8 is 65 thou over.

Here are some Australians who run 3.3 litre 3000 engines, (~3.5 in
bore, which is ~ 220 thou oversize) - usually with Volvo based
pistons:

Cameron Sell; John Wakeling
http://www.natsoft.com.au/cgi-bin/results.cgi?22/03/1998.ARDC.E13

Neil Dunn (3.2 litre); Eric Rudd; Colin Rule; You'll also notice the 3
litre 100/4 of Peter Ford
http://www.natsoft.com.au/cgi-bin/results.cgi?25/07/1999.ORAN.R4

Road going 3.3 litre 3000's - to many to list.....

Typically, these kind of overbores require offsetting bores; and
decking blocks; and getting compression heights right. And not every
block can take that sort of oversize 50 years later, due to
corrossion/ casting irregularities.

However - you doubted it was possible. It clearly is....

Overbore at your own risk - but 60 thou is more than pretty safe.....

i have a bunch of headlight rims that i have accumulated that fit neither

not. even though the catalog says it fits, lots of time it does not. i

plated. I am the second owner of the car which has been well maintained
and
never been restored.

Olin,

Your credentials as an engineer explain everything.   I am well aware of
the
typical engineer's lack of spelling skills ;-)

Regarding the rivet and those wishing to restore their cars with this
feature in place.. a few details are in order.

As Gary has explained, the rivet is there to hold the clip in place on
the
back side of the chrome ring. Original rings with the rivet if you have
yours, can be properly restored but it requires some work.

First of all the rivet is nickel plated copper and not chrome, which is
why
on many original cars, after years of polishing the nickel wears off to
the
underlying copper. Also, the clip on the back side is zinc plated steel,
so
just re-plating the ring in chrome ring with the rivet and clip in place
is
not correct.

Others have had good success with drilling out the rivet, then chrome
plating the ring and zinc plating the clip then re-attaching the clip
with a
new nickel plated rivet. A bit of work but this is Concours after all,
and
that's how they were produced by Lucas. And, in anticipation of the
obvious
question...yes I will check on where I found the proper rivets.
I too have had no luck in 20+ years finding NOS chrome rings for my 100.

Regarding the use of NOS parts... one common item I have seen over the
years
is the use of the NOS grill for the 100. This grill, even though it's a
factory replacement in NOT the same as the original due to the obvious
flat
top on the chrome surround and will receive a deduction in Concours
judging
if used. So one more example where the factory replacement is different
than what was normally installed at the factory.

Cheers,

Curt

As the AH, like many other British cars of the time, is a collection of
bits and pieces taken from and used on many other UK cars it is certain
that the head lamp ring was used on many other cars. You cannot go by
the part number as one and the same part can have many different part
numbers.
So have a look at the rims of Triumph, Austin, Morris, Mini, MG and many
other UK cars.

Old parts were used. Then new parts used or old parts found in a corner
so
were used out of sequence.3000s with 100-6 grill badge or horn bottom.
Non
rivet find may have been installed during , before or after rivet rings
were
used.
I guess I will restore a good used ring with rivet.   I will look to see
if
rivet holds clip on nos bucket assembly I bought.

unfortunatly the record of my car was lost.
Now I am looking for cars close to mine to figure out my specification.

My vin no. is BN4L 052381. The car was built late 57 (december is my bet)

Ira, did you happen to check with Moss for your rims? I swear that I
purchased their rims and they
sent me their Gold Level rims that had the clip and rivet and there on my
car right now.

Sometimes things are only as hard as you make them to be.

Not only UK cars, but cars that used Lucas headlights, like a Volvo 1800
which does have the same headlight rim as some big Healeys. The ones on
my 1800E are the same as those on my '62 tricarb.

I have never seen the clip that the rivet holds being used to hold the
rim
on an Healey. That goes for the early more rounded off and narrower rims
of
the Hundreds, through the wider, flatter rim of the 3000's.
The top edge of the chrome rim fits behind a raised lip of the bucket
edge
at 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock. The rim is held there by the single screw
coming u from the bottom into a captive clip on the bucket at about 5
o'clock. I believe the rivets I've seen are usually stainless steel, so
have
a very slight yellow look compared to the blueish chrome of the rim.

Gergo,

Just a long shot, but maybe you should try BMIHT again, only quote your
number as BN4L O 52381. The O in the middle is a separate letter, not a
number and stands for "overdrive". If some clerk is typing into a
computer,
one digit off and they'll never see it.
You could also quote them the Batch and Body number tag. They may find it
that way.

Charlie,

The wood pieces are all available and would be covered with very thin
pebbly
grained ivory coloured vinyl. I have no dimensions but here are some
pictures that may help. I got the thin vinyl from Heritage Upholstery and
Trim and it's called "Parchment".

Thanks very much, Pete. As BJ8 Model Registrar with an interest in
identifying ALL BJ8s that exist, I appreciate my Healey friends keeping
their eyes open and letting me know when one surfaces.

I have this car in the registry, but only because it was an original
Black
car (long story). No other details, but the Hemmings ad will provide
many
of those. It helps a lot when the ads identify the VIN of the car.

Happy Healeydays!

Strange .... scuttle back appears to be in good shape but the front is
trashed. Looks like the front was cannibalized.

I have a (late) MkII BT7. With rivets.
Yes, rivets slightly yellowed in comparison to chrome of rims.
No, the clips held on by the rivets do hold the rims to my Healey. (But,
who
knows if my Lucases are the originals but they'd appear to be. Hate to
contradict a Wise One).
My rims were showing their age. I couldn't find a decent pair of
replacements. (Over some years of on/off rather desultory looking).
Either
too short or marginally too big so needed to be screwed up too tight or
just
plain rubbish. Did see some riveted ones at some stage, but NBG.
So the tatty old things kept going back onto the car. (Too badly dented
for
repair and rechrome).
Then I found a pair that were right shape but rivetless. Took clips out
of
originals, doctored new rims, put old rivets and clips into new rims.
Looks
fine. Hopefully a good working compromise. Need to be fairly delicate in
order to preserve enough of the rivets' "stalk" to keep it usable.

I have never seen the clip that the rivet holds being used to hold the
rim
on an Healey. That goes for the early more rounded off and narrower rims
of
the Hundreds, through the wider, flatter rim of the 3000's.
The top edge of the chrome rim fits behind a raised lip of the bucket
edge
at 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock. The rim is held there by the single screw
coming u from the bottom into a captive clip on the bucket at about 5
o'clock. I believe the rivets I've seen are usually stainless steel, so
have
a very slight yellow look compared to the blueish chrome of the rim.

Old parts were used. Then new parts used or old parts found in a corner
so
were used out of sequence.3000s with 100-6 grill badge or horn bottom.
Non

were
used.
I guess I will restore a good used ring with rivet. I will look to see
if
rivet holds clip on nos bucket assembly I bought.

Thanks very much, Pete. As BJ8 Model Registrar with an interest in
identifying ALL BJ8s that exist, I appreciate my Healey friends keeping
their eyes open and letting me know when one surfaces.

I have this car in the registry, but only because it was an original
Black
car (long story). No other details, but the Hemmings ad will provide
many
of those. It helps a lot when the ads identify the VIN of the car.

Happy Healeydays!

Subject: [Healeys] NOS...correct or rare
Message-ID: <5F8465ED817B4CF7AD57836625E572E1@CATMAN>

The following from Curt/Nancy Arndt brings up the interesting conundrum
regarding what is or is not "correct"

"Regarding the use of NOS parts... one common item I have seen over the
years
is the use of the NOS grill for the 100. This grill, even though it's a
factory replacement in NOT the same as the original due to the obvious
flat
top on the chrome surround and will receive a deduction in Concours
judging if
used. So one more example where the factory replacement is different
than
what was normally installed at the factory."

As those with interest in the history of the original design of our
beloved
Healey 100's know, the original peaked grill was a non starter appearing
only
on the Earls Court car. The removal of said peak required a redesign of
the
grill surrond. It seems to of created a flat topped design that was
quickly
redone to the familar curve. It seems that in later years the factory
sent the
earlier flat top grills as replacement NOS grills, probably when the
others
were no longer in stock, or on back order. So the question is, are these
grills rare early examples of the history of our cars or something to
distain
as "incorrect"?

The battery doesn't know if the car is positive or negative ground.   The
charging hookup is always the same. Red on positive and black on
negative.

All batteies are charged the same way. The battery itself determines
where
the respective charge leads attach. Plus to plus, Neg to Neg. The
battery
does not know how it is being used.

Neither.

First note there are no 'positive ground' batteries, only positive ground
cars (e.g. Austin-Healeys). The 'grounding' of the car is determined by
which battery terminal is connected to the chassis (aka 'common').

If the battery is on the bench, charge like you would any battery:
positive (usually red or green) lead from the charger to the positive
terminal of the battery, negative (usually black) terminal to the
negative terminal of the battery. The battery terminals should be marked
'+' and '-,' and the positive terminal is usually larger in diameter than
the negative.

If the battery is in the (positive ground) car, connect the negative lead
of the charger to the negative terminal of the battery, and the positive
lead of the charger to (preferably) bare metal on the chassis (make sure
the cutoff switch is on). You can connect the positive lead from the
charger to the positive terminal, but it's generally considered safer to
connect to the chassis (in case there's lingering H2 gas and a spark is
created making the connection--rare, but it happens).

Hi Mell,

Thanks for the info!
The car is LHD, and looks original (no signs of a conversion, soo not
likely
that it was a CKO kit assembled in South Africa.

52500 ooks pretty close. Is there any chance for me to know the
specification of the engine of this car? I would like to know what kind
of
cylinderhead it had.

When charging a battery with a battery charger you will connect the
RED to the Positive + side and the BLACK to the Negative - side of
the battery

The polarity to the car will not matter when hooking up a seperate
battery charger

Just to add to this thread more detail. My 64 BJ8 (original owner) had

one rim with the clip and one without.
Probably one was replaced back in 64, by the dealer, as a young
Frenchman had backed into it outside our house in Paris. They are
otherwise identical, except on the one without the clip, the rivet is of
poorer quality, the nickle plaiting has worn off to the brass, while the
other one is fine. If anyone wants them (for the pattern of the
clip):-) , free for the shipping. They are not good for re chroming,
without work.

Message-ID: <004f01cb97f0$7ef03dd0$6401a8c0@9535DEE118EC44B>

Hi Gergo

Just looking at a combination of Clausager's book and the 100-Six Parts
List:

The late 100-Six engine with the six-port manifold and HD-6 carbs was
fitted
to ALL cars from Chassis/ Engine No. 52602 on, in November 1957.   The
switchover from the old-type gallery head motor was fuzzy, the new motor
having begun being fitted at 48863 on, but 312 old- type motors,
individually
listed in the Parts List, continued to be fitted intermittently into the
next
3,740 cars until 52601.

Your C/E number , 052381, is NOT in this list of intermittently-fitted
old-type motors. The last few integral gallery-head motors in the list
are:
51742, 51743, 51744, 51755, 51746, 52550 and 52601.    So you should have
the
new six-port head motor.

Some other cue points for roughly dating your car (52381) can be:

Sept. 1957 (47703)- sidescreens changed from front-opening (plexi angles
forward), to rear-opening type (plexi angles backwards like most)
                 (48387) -locking door handle dropped for late non-
locking
type
Oct. 1957   (48863) -begin motor change-over to new type
                 (48863) - brake master/ clutch cyls. now have a single
remote
reservoir, not separate integral type
                 (50759) - accelerator controls now snap-lock type, not
spring-loaded barrel type as on 100's
                 -----------
Nov.1957    (52602) - new six-port motor and remote reservoir now in all
cars
Dec. 1957- (52704) -strengthening hoop introduced in bulkhead

Best regards
Peter

like to keep it "unrestored". The seat backs are OK but the bottoms are
pretty ratty. He is wondering if anyone has recently restored a 100-4

He will be needing a few other items if you know of a stash of NOS 100

Check with British Miles in Morrisville, PA. He has a bunch of big
Healey seats with original covers on them. Some of them may be 100s. I
know he has some 3000 ones. If they are not torn, but still need some
work or are the wrong color, check out Color Plus
http://colorplus.com/. Be sure to read their "About Leather" tutorial
which describes the whole process. Perhaps even the ratty bottoms can
be saved with restitching and restoring.

I guess we all make errors and ask questions or read answers that seem
odd
from others. It would be my personal hope that we don't scare someone
away
from asking a question or answering a question because they are unsure of
the reaction. There are no bad questions and am grateful for anyone's
attempt to answer my questions right or wrong.

Subject: [Healeys] Little Rivets
Message-ID: <957442.58883.qm@web51408.mail.re2.yahoo.com>

Little Healeys also have the rivet issue. Bugeyes came with riveted
headlight
rims, but the repros are rivetless. When I restored my Bugeye, I sent
out all
the original chrome pieces to a local shop for replating, including the
riveted headlight rims. It was a high end shop that did the plating for
a
number of Ralph Lauren's cars. When my parts were returned, I quickly
realized the headlight rims were a little different. Not only were they
quite
a bit larger than the Bugeye's, they were imprinted with the word
"Carello".
A few days later, I got a call from a Cape Cod restoration shop (which
coincedentally had done the restoration of Roger Menadue's LeMans
Nash-Healey) inquiring whether our plating orders might have been mixed
up.
Seems they had my Bugeye rims and I had the rims from a very rare
Maserati (1
of 7)    We did an even swap, but I think I should have held them ransom.

BTW, happy to note my Nasty Boy BJ7 still sports its original rims with
rivets.

I have many MGA spares from years gone by but the profile of the rims are
different. Hard to explain
but if you had them side by side you would see the difference.

To all my Healey friends, please forgive me---but--this Dryman is a true
prick. I never said that at all. He has decided to send me and the
world one of his nasty undiplomatic posts. Actually it was he who
confused the message and comments I was referring to and shot from the
hip without checking.
Here is the message I was referring to.

" Peter Ryner <pryner at verizon.net> wrote:

=============
The battery doesn't know if the car is positive or negative ground.     The
charging hookup is always the same. Red on positive and black on
negative."

To which I replied "I think you are correct --- but don't try to use the
car body for the ground---use the battery neg post." I thought it would
be obvious why.

I was merely cautioning to not forget and stick the negative from the
donor car on the Healey body------but rather on the Healey battery
negative terminal.

Do I expect an apology from this classless person----nope. Suggest you
READ the context of messages before commenting DICK-------or do you have
this burning need to criticise to better cope with yourself.

Again--my upfront apologies to others here, but thanks for listening.

Sorry, what is causing a possible misunderstanding is: You wrote your
response
to Michael Hartfield , the originator of the thread (whose question was:
>
"When
charging positive ground batteries, what is the correct connection,
red to
ground, black to positive, or the other way around??")

  Your
response should have been to Bob Spidell.
 His was the only post to this
thread that mentioned 'car body' anyway.

Could be extremely misleading when
folks see your reply to Michael as:
 "I think you are correct --- but don't
try to use the car body for the
ground---use the battery neg post."

The
point of my unbelief was that the post might create a dangerous
situation;
hydrogen and sparks do not mix.

My original 100 BN2 rims have more than rivets, they have lots of dings

I know I am late on this; been busy.

'62 BT7 - both rims have rivets one with and one without a clip, no
dimples. The flange that faces the headlight bucket on the rim with a
clip is flatter than the non-clip rim.

I agree, very odd. Looks like the PO may have taken the shroud off for
some
reason then parked the car outside for 10 years. If you note on the back
end, however, the paint is peeling off, so something is very amiss here.

While Mr. Dryman may or may not be a prick (I won't comment as I do not
have
enough info to draw a judgment)
YOU are the one shot from the hip and confused the subject.
Read the first 2/3 of the first sentence of the OP
"When charging positive ground batteries, what is the correct
connection,"
>From this we can deduce that the OP wants to know how to correctly
connect a
battery charger to a positive ground automobile.
Five individuals answered the question correctly.
Then you come along with
"I think you are correct --- but don't try to use the car body for the
ground---use the battery neg post."
mkay do you see where you screwed the pooch yet? No? Go back and read
the
OP again. When charging a POSITIVE GROUND car...
Still can't see it? OP puts neg terminal from charger on neg terminal of
battery, positive terminal to either the body or the positive terminal of
the battery (electrically the same place) Then he reads your post and
moves
the positive terminal of the battery charger to the negative terminal of
the
battery just like you recommended.
If the OP followed your advice he would have both the positive and
negative
terminals of the battery charger attached to the negative post of the
battery. Trust me this is not the recommended method of battery charger
attachment.
Then when Mr. Dryman called you on it, you went even deeper into left
field
in your rebuttal with "I was merely cautioning to not forget and stick
the
negative from the donor car on the Healey body------but rather on the
Healey
battery negative terminal."
Donor car? WTF? You have now confused charging a battery with jump
starting a car, and you still haven't figured out it is a positive ground
car. Furthermore you got the instructions for jump starting wrong. When
jump starting you DO connect the last connection to the body so that
when
the a spark jumps from the cable to ground it does not ignite any stray
H2
that might be around the top of the battery. Since battery chargers all
have either a switch or a plug that allows them to be turned off, this
caution is not necessary with a battery charger.
If I were you, I would ask Mr. Dryman for forgiveness.

Judging from the amount of corrosion localized to the front of the car
and the
missing sheet metal I suspect that the car had an engine bay fire at some
point. Maybe the bonnet was off the car at the time since it doesn't
appear to
have been damaged.

If the 3000 engine is in good shape run with it. There are many bn4 s
out there with 3000 engines. Its a better set up imho. Only reason to
chsnge is if you are building a car to be judged. My bn4 came with a

<       My bn4 came with a 3000 engine   >

The Browning/ Needham book on the A-H from 1970 has extensive detailed
tuning
info on the various models. The Tuning section for the 4-port 100-Six
consists of one sentence:

"The larger capacity '3000' engine will fit into the'100-Six' without
much
difficulty."

Gergo, I don't know how late your 3000 motor is, but visually, the only
real
difference between a late 2.6 and an early 2.9 motor is that the 100-Six
head
doesn't have the little flat "shelf", for the Thermo-Carb sender, next to
the
thermostat at the front.

My original 100 BN2 rims have more than rivets, they have lots of dings
and
one has a crack! I originally intended to have them restored but it will
take an artist finish-metalworker to deal with these compound curves.

Anybody has experience with this or do I need to join the NOS-riveted-rim

Gergo,

Another point...in addition to Peter's excellent research into cars close
to
yours, your engine, being a newly introduced 6 port engine should be
painted
in the dark Morris Green paint. The National Concours Committee has been
conducting extensive research on these cars, and this is one of the many
significant details we've been able to confirm. It seems these engines
were
painted his way from the time they began installing the new 6 port
engines
at Abingdon from late October '57 until about April of '58 when BN4
production paused for a few months while the new 2 seater BN6 came on
line.

Mike--you were in no way the cause of unpleasantness. Certainly I had a
major part to play in that. I guess I could and should have just let the
comments go.

I can see where my comment could have been confusing.   My intent was
something other.

So--again----to all----I add my wishes for a safe and happy holiday

So, when charging a battery on a Healey, I put the red cable on the +
and the black cable on the headlight rivet? That is unless you
dropped the rivets in the concourse, at which point, you would be
unable to charge it.

Peter - as always, great info

per the listing
Nov.1957 (52602) - new six-port motor and remote reservoir now in all
cars
Dec. 1957- (52704) -strengthening hoop introduced in bulkhead

I know it does not apply to my Longbridge, but what is this strengthening
hoop
TIA - jim lesher

Riveting theory though!   I got a charge out    of it!

Hi Peter,

The engine in my car is a ver early 2.9. Only nominaly sronger than the
original 2.6. The head does eve have the "thermo switch" for the
"auto-choke".

Jim,

The early 100-Sixes were criticized for excessive scuttle shake. This
strengthening hoop was introduced with the idea of minimizing this
transverse
"paralellogram" movement of the cowl structure.

Looking into the engine bay of an early 100-Six preferably without the
motor,
you see that the space between the footwells and upper bulkhead, (where
the
bellhousing sits), you see a perfectly rectangular opening.

On all later Healeys, this space between the footwells is now a
semicircular
shape hugging the bellhousing more closely. This effectively "gusseted"
the
corners of the rectangle, making the bulkhead more resistant to sideways,
transverse motion in relation to the frame.

Best
Peter

too impatient, have to source closer   to home....
Thanks, will use that as a fall back   position.
I had no idea when I found the found   the NOS headlight assembly how lucky
I
was and how cheaply I bought it... I   guess I will have one of my
collection
of used rings restored.

A magician worked on a cruise ship.

The audience was different each week so the magician did the same tricks
over
and over again.

There was only one problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows each week
and
began to understand how the Magician did every trick.

Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show, "Look,
Its
not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under   the table!"
Or
"Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

The magician was furious but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the
Captain's' parrot.

Then one stormy night on the Pacific, the ship unfortunately sank,
drowning
almost all who were on board.
The magician luckily found himself on a piece of wood floating in the
middle
of the sea, as fate would have it ... With the parrot.

They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word.

This went on for a day... And then 2 days. And then 3 days. Finally on
the 4th
day, the parrot could not hold back any longer and said...

"OK, I give up. Where's the fuckin' ship?"

Message-ID: <000f01cb988c$df27ec10$9d77c430$@e.maier@t-online.de>

Hey listers,



I have a few problems with the cylinder head of my 3000 engine.

In summer I rebuild the head by renewing the valves / guides and the
surface
was grinded.

But it turned out after a few kilometers around 600-700, that oil was in
the
cooling water and then I tightened the cylinder head after about 1000km.
But that didn t have any effect, the amount of oil in the water was
actually
increasing.
So I removed the head again and I gave it to an engine shop to put the
cooling ports under pressure, but it did stand the pressure. I thought is
probably due to the sealing or assembly.
I brought a new set of seals and reassembled them, but there was still
oil
in the water. I torque down the head with 3 / 6 / 8 / 10.5 Nm here in
several stages.



Do you have any suggestions what I could do to solve this problem? Thank
you
in advance.



Regards

Dirk

I have never torqued a Healey head, but all others were a heck of a
lot more torque than 10.5 Nm. They were more like 100-120 Nm.

That's actually not a bad price.

Headlight rings for my Studebaker are $70.00/ea (I use the Sudebaker
as a cost benchmark for prices as parts for it are normally cheaper
than dirt).

Yes I missed that.
10,5Nm is very little and certainly wrong. It should probably read
10,5Kgm which is roughly 105Nm.

I also don't think $110 is outrageous for quality NOS rims if they are
correct. Pricey... yes, but hopefully you get what you pay for. When I
consider the effort and cost to drill out and make the proper rivet then
re-plate and assemble the originals, then the price is more in line.

By definition, they are not making NOS parts any more, so get them while
you
can

Remember the old adage that... "When you go from a 98 point car to a 100
point car, you double the cost of the restoration."

Cheers,

Curt

Hello Dirk,

You may have a problem with two oil galleries which run through the water
jackets of the block, especially if you have recently descaled or acid
dipped the block during rebuild.

This problem is not unusual with the 'C'series block.

Cape International in the UK have a kit available for the repair if this
is
the problem - costs about 50 GBP and you need to strip the block, find a
good machinist and have it repaired.

My 29D block has a similar problem wherein after a long trip I have
traces
of engine oil in the radiator.
I am still driving my Healey with this problem and I won't touch it until
running temperatures (160 degrees on a hot day, 190 in traffic) increase
or
I see water in the engine oil.

Who knows anything about this oil gallery repair kit as sold by SC Parts,
see
No 85 and perhaps other suppliers:

Is this kit to vercome a weakness in the block?
Could that kit be a solution for Dirk`s problem with oil in the water?

Subject: [Healeys] 100 rims alternative sources
Message-ID: <455898.79397.qm@web36708.mail.mud.yahoo.com>

Using the Lucas 400e parts manual it's clear that the headlight
assemblies
were used on multiple car brands/models in the 50's. Below is data for
the
51336 (F700 (dip left) 12V) This is just one of the 5 different
assemblies
used for the AH 100 BN1 and BN2. Note that there were variations in the
assembly part# by using a letter suffix, ie A, B, C,... These indicated
that
the whole assembly was interchangeable.   Consulting the same manual you
can
check that the rim with part# 554440 was used on these assemblies.

This opens
up the search quite a bit. I just hope a lucas 554440 rim for let's say
a
Wolseley in this list is the same as the 554440 for the Healey. Also
this
list is referenced only from Lucas perspective. The car manufacturers
might
have used other brands parts. Little chance to that with Lucas
domination in
UK at the time but still double-check any findings. Also as already
pointed
out Lucas might have changed the design ie. dropped out the rivet in
subsequent issues of the same part so I would stay close to a the
original
manufacturing dates 53-56.

enjoy

Hi Rod, hi Bill,



when I removed the head, I saw that the oil port with pressure is only
one -
it's for the rocker shaft.

The other ports are only for the return flow of the oil,   with a low
pressure, I think?

Is it right?

I have also had oil in my coolant.   I checked with a Healey specialty
shop
about the repair. I don't remember the figure but it was more than I
wanted
to spend. There is a place in the block where the oil passage and water
jacket have a very thin amount of metal between them. A little corrosion
and it starts leaking. The good thing is that your oil pressure at 20 -
50+
lbs. is always higher than your coolant pressure at 7 lbs or so. That
means
the oil will seep into the coolant, but the coolant won't push it's way
into
the oil. The shop told me the oil, in small amounts doesn't really hurt
anything. I open the radiator and dip the end of rolled up paper towels
into it to swab out some of the oil periodically. About once a year I
drain
the coolant, refill it a time or two with water and run it to rinse it
out.
I have even put some Dawn Dish soap in the water and run it to emulsify
the
oil into the water to get more of it out. After a good rinse run, I
drain
and refill with my coolant mix. My car always runs in the right temp
range
(per the thermostat I have installed). Until it gets much worse, I will
keep doing what I'm doing. I've never found signs of water in my oil.
The actual repair requires having the machine shop bore the oil passage
and
then they sleeve it.

My 2 cents worth

Yes I missed that.
10,5Nm is very little and certainly wrong. It should probably read
10,5Kgm which is roughly 105Nm.

Took my boys over the see the car, about 20 miles from my house. The NOS
headlight bucket came with a non-rivet outer rim!
So now I will have one with a rivet and one without!
So I will now take a rivet from an older unit and adapt the NOS unit with

Wow,

He sold 5 out of 8 rims already!   I should have asked for a cut but
no, I believe in good Healey karma. I am asking the seller if he has the
100

Subject: [Healeys] Oil in the water cooling system
Message-ID: <883539.96135.qm@web82206.mail.mud.yahoo.com>

Hello,
I have my engine sitting in the garage waiting for me to rebuild it this
Spring. When I popped out the core plugs I found nearly 1/2" of rusty
"dirt"
in the water jacket. The block is all standard but the bores are worn.
Are
there any visual clues as to whether or not to sleeve the oil gallery -
even
if it passes a pressure test? The last thing I would want after a
restoration
would be to find oil traces in the coolant.
Thanks for any advice,

Hi guys,
thank you very much for your helpful suggestions.
My problem with the oil is quite the same what John and Bill described.
I worried about dismantling and stripping the engine.
But I think the only way to find out where the crack is, is to put the
block
under pressure.

Kind regards

Send the block to redistrip.

The leak from the oil gallery to the water jacket is an issue. But
I've never actually seen a block that has that issue.
Never.
Clean the block first.
And when you punch out the core plugs, look at the water jacket
between the bores.
And take a pic or two. Before and after.
Just humour me Joe. Don't just put you block in caustic. Go for
redistrip.
No financial interest.
But I wouldn't recommend any other way.
Punch put the welch plugs. Punch out the oil gallery plugs. Measure
the distance to the bottom of the water galleries from the top of the
bore, and the bottom of the welch plugs. Observe the gap between bores
from the welch plug holes.
Then record the same data after it's been to redistrip.
Then send me an email.
;-)

Hello Healey listers,
Just short of 3 years after buying a disassembled 64 BJ8 Phase I, and 2
years and 3 months after starting work on the car at BMC Restorations
with
Peter Brauen in Kiln, Mississippi, I drove her home yesterday 120 miles
to
Baton Rouge. What a thrill! Peter only worked on the car while I was
there,
so of course the schedule was limited by my availability. What a
delight,
driving a car that I've wanted since high school in the early 70's.
She's
mine, and she's home. A dream come true.
http://picasaweb.google.com/mlandrick/HealeyGoesHome121010#
Not quite finished yet though. As you can see from the pictures, I still
need to install the grill and attach the front bumper. A bigger task is
putting together the convertible top frame and getting the top on. I'm
going to attempt to do those myself at home over the next several weeks.

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some
detailed
instructions for reassembling the frame and installing the convertible
top
on it. I have Norman Nock's Tech Talk book but I don't see any reference
to
this particular task.

Thanks to all who have answered questions and helped me find parts. It's
been fantastic having you all in the Healey brotherhood as a resource.
Now,
maybe I can start to become one myself.
Cheers,

rick,
looking good! don't forget to flat black the x brace in front of the
radiator where it doesn't show through the grille after it's reinstalled.
you'll find that a fun chore.

Rick,



Thanks for the pictures, I never get tired of looking at Healeys and
yours
is especially nice. You look like a tall fellow did you have to move the
seat back? Also, is that black dot on the shroud by the windshield for an
antenna? Again great pictures and I know you are very proud.

Rick,
Take an advice from a guy who intended to do the same on his BJ8: don't
do
it! Take your car to a pro, and let him both supply the soft top and fit
it.
Your car is looking so beautiful, it would be a pity to spoil it with a
clear I-tried-to-do-it-myself-but-in-hindsight-I-shouldn't-have-done-that
top with wrinkles, leaking like hell when in a unexpected rain burst.
I've done a lot of work myself in a 7 year long reconstruction period,
but
among other jobs fitting the soft top (and also fitting the upholstery to
the seats) I left to people who are familiar with the tricks of the
trade.
Again, it would be a pity for a car looking so great!
Have a look at picasaweb.google.nl/j.aeckerlin to see what pro's do with
a
good soft top.
Good luck!

The video set sold by Moss, covering the interior and carpet installation
on
a BJ8, has a good section on installing the top. Buy or borrow a copy if

years and 3 months after starting work on the car at BMC Restorations

Not necessarily so, Mark. Suppliers, including Moss are very
inconsistent. I
ordered two for a Hundred 3 weeks ago and they came in with reasonable
quality chrome, proper shape, but no rivets

Car looks great, I like the white over blue.

I am generally a strong proponent of DIY efforts, I too would give some
thought to having the top professionally done, it is sort of a get it
right
the first time or your hosed proposition, but I have no idea what your
skill
sets are, but it is kind of a specialized deal.

Then again if you are like me your car will spend very little time with
the
top up!

If you do it use the old carpenters adage, but measure three or four
times
before you cut, glue, etc.

As I said to Rick, leave the top to a professional. I too did a frame off
on
my phase 1 and was determined to to the top to perfection, but was never
satisfyied with it and tryed to correct the fit a number of times. I'm
not
sure if it was the top or my abilitys. As I have said over the years to
clients, you stay home and do what you do best, and I'll do my best for
you,
whether its restoring a car or a house. The interior is relatively easy
with
the kits out there, with patience, it can make you proud of the
results.The
convertible top is a beautiful and functional thing and really sets off
the
car when done right. I recently did my MG-TD top (way much simpler, start
with
one of those), and always attract lookers at car shows with the top up.

I know that NOS Locators was selling the correct Bugeye chrome ring with
the
rivet on eBay. However a recent search on their eBay store didn't turn
up
any hits for that item.

Hi Dirk and Josef. I suffered from this in my BN7 for a number of years,
tried head gaskets, etc., and then did the SC kit in the first rebuild
of
the engine, in 2000. It didn't help, but then, nothing about that rebuild
was right. After finding my heart for the fight again, I pulled the
engine
another time, and took it to a better engine rebuilder. This shop did
everything differently, really understood the engineering process, and
the
results have been terrific. The oil in coolant problem was fixed with a
concrete-like product that the builder, Guy Henson, carefully flowed into
the area he calculated was the source of this porosity. Bingo. I have
watched the coolant carefully for 8 years and about 12K miles without a
problem. You can find Guy at http://www.dgmotors.biz/default.htm

I love these fellows. Jim Wojcik, BN7 Minnesota

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the guidance. I've done two MGB tops and wasn't really
satisfied
with either of them. That being said, I'm older, wiser, more patient,
and
more experienced than before, but still certainly not an expert. In this
case I'll go down the road of doing it myself for awhile - learning,
reading, talking, trialing, and then decide. Your feedback is helpful.

Hi Jerry, Mel, Jaap, Herb, Greg,
I'm on the digest, so just seeing all of your feedback.

Appreciate the comments on the car. It was originally Ivory White, but I
needed a little more color, and with my favorite one being blue, I had to
go
with Healey Blue coves with blue interior and top. Distinctive color
combo
for sure. I only found 7 BJ8's with that color combination when I
searched
Steve's registry files a couple years ago when I decided what color to
paint
mine.

Jerry - I hand painted the x brace silver to match the aluminum air
conditioning condenser, so when you look through the grill, the x brace
disappears into the condenser, I believe the factory's intention with
black
in front of the black radiator.

Mel - seat doesn't go any farther back because of the panel around the
convertible top attaching pad. Too bad, I'm feeling quite close to the
dash. Good eye with the 7/8" rubber grommet in the hole where the
antenna
used to be. We cut 2" out of the foam before putting the seat together to
lower my eyes below the windshield frame. I'm 6'2" and it works great,
although the seat is a little hard. Should have done the holes too.

Jaap - very nice pictures of your car. Mine started out completely
disassembled for 15 years, but fortunately dipped and primed, so not as
rusty. I hear your advice loud and clear - I'll definitely read, study,
talk, measure, measure, and trial fit before I decide to use razor
blades,
glue, and tacks.

Herb,
Forgot about the Moss video. Knew they had it for MGBs, have seen it,
but
didn't think about Healeys. However, now with everything done but the
top,
not good value for money, but I'll check with local contacts to see if
they
have a copy I can look at.

Greg,
Thanks for the accolades, but I'll have to give credit to Peter Brauen of
BMC Restorations in Kiln, MS. He's the real craftsman, I'm just the
helper
and learner.

Cheers,
Rick

Subject: [Healeys] 6 cyl headlight rim with rivet for trade or sale
Message-ID: <451383.22394.qm@web36703.mail.mud.yahoo.com>

Hi,

I have a 6 cyl headlight rim with rivet for trade or sale, pic on

http://www.flickr.com/photos/50942694 at N05/5252232147/

This came of an early 6 cyl of a friend. Light scratches that will
polish out. Rivet is slightly more yellow so probably original but not
100% sure.
More pics on request.

Looking to trade for things like Lucas ST330 master battery switch
(broken ok), Overdrive dash toggle switch (long toggle), starter
solenoid, sideshift transmission knob, 100 headlight rim.

Will also part out and sell the rivet to the highest bidder!   ;-)

cheers,

Bert

The frames were painted black only on cars that had headlight rims with
no
rivets, all others were painted body colour. It's late saturday what can
I
say.

Practically speaking this would not make sense since the substructure,
which was welded to the chassis at Jensens, would (by default) need to
be painted body color because of how the whole thing was made. If the
chassis was black the substructure would have to be black as well.

rick,
my first Healey was a '67 BJ8 acquired in '78 while then living in
Plano,
Tx. my first major chore was to install a new top since the BJ8 was
relegated to the driveway until my new garage/workshop was completed.
the
top was a Robbins which came with no instructions or chalk-marks.
through
trial and error, i finally obtained a passable fit,however, along the way
established the one-hand record for the longest toss of the U shaped rear
retainer.
cheers,
jerry

I've always loved the lines on an E-type, but the wheelbase is too
narrow for my eye. The wheels on a 3000 are almost flush with the
body, and I prefer that look.

Very nice anchor, I don't think I would have wasted the time to take
pictures. I like the raised "Duck Tail" rear, looks like it's back is
broken.
Then there are the well preserved rusty fenders in plastic. What a
deal. A case of your favorite brew to anyone who takes this pile of
rust on.

I like the use of the word "uniqueness".

I also like the VIN tag:
"When ordering replacements quote car number: <whatever it is>"

Does that mean replacement "car"?   ;)

Reference my previous question on (dead) speedos....

Once again, many thanks for all the replies and data.

Now, I did spot an angle drive going cheap on eBay and just resisted
buying
it. (Is it just me or does anyone else throw new parts at a problem until
it
goes away?)

I raised the tunnel cover and got to the angle drive.

The speedo cable was broken about 4in up from the angle drive. So that
much
is solved.

Do these things often break? Mine doesn't do many miles and I don't think
I
was stressing it by, for example, having it at too acute an angle.

And should the angle drive be removed and serviced(?) in any way whilst
it's
accessible?

I presume that one just loosens off the round brass cross-hatched
threaded
wotsit and the drive just comes off?

Since the cable broke, that might indicate that the speedo is binding.

Subject: [Healeys] Smitty 5-speed for sale
Message-ID: <84006.26074.qm@web36703.mail.mud.yahoo.com>

Hi,

I acquired a complete Smitty transmission last spring from a Healey
restorer who was bringing a BJ8 back to original spec. The idea was to
start driving with with this box, while restoring an original BN2
sideshifter with broken overdrive. I also got tempting offers just for
the original bellhousing, one from a 100s owner. I only live only a
couple miles from smitty's workshop so it should have been a no-brainer,
right?

Well last summer I restored the OD and refurbished the gearbox. OD
needed everything including new uni-directional and the steel ring in the
annulus as both were shattered. Plus bearings, washers, springs,
balls... the works. Initially the OD was not building up enough pressure
but seating the operating valve ball with a punch and replacing this ball
with a new one did the trick. I got perfect pressure with the trans on
the bench driven by an electric motor. I ran the box multiple times on
the bench for about an hour and operated the OD observing the speed
change with a digital tach. So I decided this summer the BN2 side
shifter goes in the car and the smitty is now for sale.

Add, info and pictures on British car forum.

Hoping this goes to a good home.

Working on the xk150 trying to resolve some leaking/seeping carb issues.

Is there some sort of gasket dressing that can be used to supplement the
fiber washers?

Car has one of those electric thermostatically controlled "starter
carbs" instead of a choke.

The car uses HD4's and the starter carb feeds off the bottom (where the
float bowl would be fastened with 4 screws on the HD8).

There are a total of 5 fiber washers used to connect this thing, and I
am leaking out of 4 of them.

I am a bit concerned about continuing to tighten the steel fitting into
the bottom of the aluminum carb in fear of stripping or cracking it.
(both on the main and starter carb)

Alternatively, apparently these elect starter carbs are such a problem
that I'm wondering if it may make more sense to fashion a manual choke.

The fiber washers actually work quite well. They do require a couple re-
tightenings as they soften with the fuel contact. Make sure the ones you
are
using are very close to the same thread diameter on their ID. Those
13/16"
[sic] 7/16 Whitworth fitting will take a surprising amount of torque.
Don't
have any numbers but I'll guess I go over 50-60 ft lbs very often..

Subject: [Healeys] Carb. Fiber Washer Question - Jag - not healey

Working on the xk150 trying to resolve some leaking/seeping carb issues.

Is there some sort of gasket dressing that can be used to supplement the
fiber washers?

Car has one of those electric thermostatically controlled "starter
carbs" instead of a choke.

The car uses HD4's and the starter carb feeds off the bottom (where the
float bowl would be fastened with 4 screws on the HD8).

There are a total of 5 fiber washers used to connect this thing, and I
am leaking out of 4 of them.

I am a bit concerned about continuing to tighten the steel fitting into
the bottom of the aluminum carb in fear of stripping or cracking it.
(both on the main and starter carb)

Alternatively, apparently these elect starter carbs are such a problem
that I'm wondering if it may make more sense to fashion a manual choke.

Bert,
Bench testing is great, but I'd wait until the BN2 tranny is proven in
the car before selling the Toyota one.

couple miles from smitty's workshop so it should have been a no-brainer,

with a new one did the trick. I got perfect pressure with the trans on
the bench driven by an electric motor. I ran the box multiple times on
the bench for about an hour and operated the OD observing the speed
change with a digital tach. So I decided this summer the BN2 side
shifter goes in the car and the smitty is now for sale.

Take the generator to a local shop that rebuilds generators and have them
test
it. It's not a bad idea to take the regulator in with it so they can test
them
together.

Permatex makes a sealant that is resistant to gasoline. I get it at my
local auto parts store.   The tube is marked Permatex 2 Pliable
Non-Hardening Sealant, and it says it is resistant to oil, fuel, and
chemicals. I've used it on the flange of my fuel tank sending unit, and
it
hasn't leaked yet.

My concern, more than the price is the ratios.

5 gear is 1:1. (as 4 gear w/o overdrive on the BN2)
6 gear is :0.47 ( a very high drop on engine revs and may not very
suitable
for normal road use)
I just hoped that the ratios were
4 gear 1:1
5 gear 1:0.75 more or less
6 gear 1:0.6 more or less

The toyota is
4 gear 1:1
5 gear 1:0.78

But jumping from 1:1 to 1:0:47 in 1 gear is too much...


And i got some pictures and YES the gear shifter is in the side a the
original
car. This is great, but the ratios are terrible

Has anyone seen one installed in a BN1 - 2 - 4 with side shift ?

Thanks

Jose

Thanks for the responses so far. I probably should clarify that I
already
know it doesn't work, just want to know if it is the field or the
armature.

Jose:
my preference would be
fourth gear of 1:1
fifth gear of .8
6th gear .6

this would give you a close box where you need it and two great
cruising gears. the 6 th gear is for over 80 MPH cruising.
here are the ratios from a 550 Maranallo, 6 Speed Manual with a 3.9
Final Drive
1st Gear Ratio 3.15:1
2nd Gear Ratio 2.18:1
3rd Gear Ratio 1.57:1
4th Gear Ratio 1.19:1
5th Gear Ratio 0.94:1
6th Gear Ratio 0.76:1

Can anyone supply me with the references (size) of all the oil seals
required
for the gearbox and overdrive for a BN2.
I had then ordered from Moss but got seized by Colombian customs ... And
now I
wont have them before new year...
I just need the sizes...
Thanks

Jose

Hi Listers,

Sorry, I didn't anticipate to get so many inquiries from listers
within a couple hours. I offered first to our online community of Healey
enthusiasts thinking there might be somebody interested and I would hear
back
in a couple days or a week or so. I don't want a bidding war so I am
handling
this chronologically.   But with 5 inquiries in one afternoon I am
putting a
hold on the Smitty for now. Otherwise I will need to disappoint even
more
people. I'll let you know if/when it's still available.

Bert

Mark, fluctuation of the fuel gauge needle, IMHO, indicates fluctuating
voltage as the fuel gauge is no more than a volt meter. I got rid of the
fluctuation by soldering a thin flexible wire to the float arm and
grounding
the other end on the sender body - see attached picture (for your eyes
only). The explanation is that the current through the sender mechanism
has
to pass from the shaft with the wiper to the sender body. Lucas thought
their equipment was corrosion free, but it isn't , and one gets a nice
fluctuating resistance in the bore.
With the flex wire the resistance is close to nil and also not
fluctuating.
At least this solution worked for me....
Good luck!

Jonas -

I have a '59 Mk IX with twin HD6s + the starter carb.   It is very similar
in
set up & age to your XK 150.

The fibre washers will eventually seal, you just have to tighten them
with a
little twist, probably twice over a couple of months/500 miles type of
thing. I figure it's easier to tighten them up then pull the bloody
thing
apart again and use sealant.

Note that the starter cab is an open system and, depending on how hard
you
drive your car, the carb will splash fuel out of the top and leak to the
bottom of the AED & the carb it's attached to. It can look like the
fibre
washers are leaking when in fact it's the fuel coming out of the top of
the
AED (starter carb) and wicking into the fibre washers at the bottom of
the
AED.

Note that the carbs use BSP threads to anchor the banjo fittings into the
aluminum carbs. This means you can put quite a bit of pressure on them
to
seal them up without worrying about stripping threads in the Ali carbs.
 Generally speaking you should be safe up to about 35 ft-lbs or so of
pressure (medium to medium hard hand pressure on your spanner).

The best way to use your AED is to bypass the Lucas Otter switch, and do
a
manual toggle switch to ground. I use it this way on my AED and keep it
off
most of the time, and when I do turn it on I only turn it on for about
10-20
seconds to get the car running.

Cheers,

Alan

Jack

On most, if not all sender units that are fitted to our cars, the
electrical connection does not, as you describe rely on current passing
from the sender shaft to the body through the bearing surfaces. There is
a small hair spring of about 3 turns that wraps around the shaft at its
centre that make a direct connection between the body and the rotating
section.

This is hardly visible unless you remove the resistor former. Not an
easy task I admit. This light coil spring often breaks and a fix like
yours becomes the only realistic solution.

For the record, our sender units were made by Smiths not Lucas.

Listers,

Yes I know we're talking about transmission transplants but this also
brings
up the subject of final drive ratios. I have a 3.54 rear end for my BN1
and
others that have installed them in their BN2s loved them, especially for
long distance cruising. I'm curious as to the final drive ratio when
switching from the stock 4.11 rear given this quote...

Does anyone have these numbers?   Mike Lempert?

Steve,
I can highly recommend Apple Hydraulics. I send all front shocks to them
and
they come back like new. The only thing you need to change are the bolts
for
the back plates. The shocks come back with hexagonal screws instead of
slotted
or poxidrive ones.
But for rear shocks I always go with new ones.


Btw: Could anyone tell me when the change was (what year) from slotted to
poxidrive screws?

Rich,

Although I know nothing about AMCO tonneau covers per se, I offer the
following general points. If you have a way to ask for a measurement
of the length of the long zipper down the middle of the tonneau I
would get it. The original zipper length for a factory tonneau is
approximately 31-32". If the zipper is shorter than 31 " it will
likely be difficult to fold one side down (driver side) and snap it to
the heel board behind the seat. Further, with a short zipper the top
may not lie flat across the top of the rear shroud when one side is
folded down and fixed to the heel board.

Also, I notice from the pictures provided that all of the snaps seem
to be installed on the cover. If the placement of the snaps doesn't
match the positioning of the posts on the car body you may have
further difficulties. I prefer to install my own snap hardware and get
it right.

Simon, With the drive cable broken above the angle drive, it is highly
unlikely the angle drive is the problem. It has to be with the
speedometer.
Years ago my girl friend's MG Midget's speedo quite and I found the drive
cable broken and thought it had just worn out, so I replaced it. It
worked
fine for a few days and then broke again. I used a small common screw
driver
and inserted it into the drive at the back of the speedo to see if there
was
any drag and found it to turn quite easily in one direction but would
lock up
in the other direction in about half of a revolution. Turned out the
other
direction was the direction the transmision would turn the cable when the
car
was in reverse. I opened up the speedo and found a lever had come loose
inside and would lock up the mechanism. It was a very long time ago, but
I
think it had something to do with the odometer and would lock up in
reverse
but would work fine in forward.   As I remember, it was a snap ring or
clip of
some sort that had fallen off and allowed the lever to get caught on the
inside of the speedo housing. I found the clip (snap ring) inside and
put it
back on and had no further problems after that. That is why it worked
for a
few days until the first time she backed up and I snapped the cable
again.
Try turning your speedo by hand and see if that is the problem.

Reference my previous question on (dead) speedos....
Once again, many thanks for all the replies and data.
Now, I did spot an angle drive going cheap on eBay and just resisted
buying
t. (Is it just me or does anyone else throw new parts at a problem until
it
oes away?)
I raised the tunnel cover and got to the angle drive.
The speedo cable was broken about 4in up from the angle drive. So that
much
s solved.
Do these things often break? Mine doesn't do many miles and I don't think
I
as stressing it by, for example, having it at too acute an angle.
And should the angle drive be removed and serviced(?) in any way whilst
it's
ccessible?
I presume that one just loosens off the round brass cross-hatched
threaded
otsit and the drive just comes off?
Simon.

Just looking at the numbers, if a 0.47 OD is applied to a final drive
(rear
axle ratio) of 4.10 you would be effectively at 1.93. Unless you are
running
at the salt flats that axle ratio will not be useful on the street or
highway.
Actually I'm not sure anyone runs a ratio below 2.00. The horsepower and
torque curves of the Healey engines will not work with this set up. Its
tough
to climb a hill on US 40 (at or near the speed limit) when your Healey
RMP's
read somewhere near idle. Just saw a some what related example of this on
one
of the Supercar shows on the Speed Channel. A Viper, that has lots of HP
and
torque, falls flat in top gear because the gearing is just not quite
right.
The Vette on the other hand had a slightly different set up and powered
by in
top gear. Although I would like to drive either at 180MPH.
Aloha
Perry

Hi all,



I have a knock coming from my rear end that I am trying to track down.



It occurs only 50% of the time. Often when jarring the car forward such
as
when engaging the overdrive and sometimes when starting to take off.



I don't believe that it is coming from the differential but can't be
certain. When the car is on jacks and I turn the rear wheels back and
forth,
I do not get a Knock.
The shackles are all tight.



Could it be the radius arm bushings??     Or the bushes on the spring
shackles?



Thanks

I believe that it is much better to install the snaps yourself. When I
bought my car 15 years ago, the tonneau did not fit correctly and I
deduced
that it was because of snaps preinstalled. I bought a new one, installed
the
snaps myself and the new one fits perfectly. Just had to take my time and
be
sure that I got it right. Our cars are pretty much standard with respect
to
the mechanics but the body work and accoutrements need tweaking that can
only be done on site.

I had a similar knock that you are describing a few years ago. It turned
out
to
be loose rear shock bolts. I tighten them and the knock went away. It's
worth
checking.

Subject: [Healeys] Rear Knocking noise

Hi all,



I have a knock
coming from my rear end that I am trying to track down.



It occurs only 50%
of the time. Often when jarring the car forward such as
when engaging the
overdrive and sometimes when starting to take off.



I don't believe that it
is coming from the differential but can't be
certain. When the car is on jacks
and I turn the rear wheels back and forth,
I do not get a Knock.



The
shackles are all tight.
Could it be the radius arm bushings??    Or the
bushes on the spring
shackles?



Thanks

paul

Check to lug nuts holding the spline adapters.   I had a knock, thought

His name is Brad Del Sorbo. He and his warehouse are here in
Connecticut. I
have purchased several hundred of dollars of stuff from him, wiring
harness,
exhaust manifolds, generator and an aftermarket trafficator, to name a
few. I
do not know, but he seems to get his stuff either from Moss or directly
from
overseas.

I'm not an expert on the quality of parts, but I've used everything

I agree,

I had mine done a few months ago, I thought they were new when I
opened the box.
Beautiful work.
The ride has improved remarkably.

Paul,
I had a knocking sound several years ago and checked all the stuff that
you
did. My noise was actually a rear shock mounting hole that was enlarged.
Put a
wrench on both shocks bolts and see it they are tight.

Does the Moss video show how to safely remove the old covers? My front
seats, dash pad and rear squab are in fine shape and could be bought
(used)
by someone with a daily driver or rat Healey (as mine was before
the transformation).
I'd like to borrow a copy of the video too. I'd like to begin work on

Paul,

A year or two after having my rear shocks re-built I began to have
knocking noises in the rear of our BJ8. The only source I could
imagine with enough mass to cause the heavy thudding I was beginning
to hear when crossing a road bump was a loose shock mounting. I
pulled the wheels off and sure enough I could put a small amount of
torque on at least one of the two nuts on the mounting bolts. That
quieted them down until late this last summer. I began to hear the
noise again. So, one of my winter jobs this year is going to be
pulling the four bolts and replacing them with fresh new bolts washers
and locking nuts. I plan to use grade 8 hardware. I also plan to use
nylock nuts on the bolts in the hopes that they will stay tight this
time. Although I suspect the reason my old bolts have loosened up
twice is that they are the original bolts and are probably stretched.

If you find that your noise is due to loose shock hardware be sure to
check the bolt holes for egg-shaped wear from motion under load.
Additionally, inspect the shock links carefullly as well. I have
found mine (again the factory originals) have begun to shift the
bushings out of position. I am also replacing the links during my
winter projects.

Paul -

Generally the diff will whine when it fails, rather than knock, so you
should be fine.

I'd check shock mount bolts, that's what it sounds like to me. Also
possibly U-joints, but I'd look at the shock mounts first. They need to
be
TIGHT on the healey.

Had the same problem on the FX4 Cab. I had to put a sandpaper "gasket"
under
the rear shock to stop its movement (well...erm... not a factory
solution,
but worked - I was afraid of pulling the thread off the bolts).

I just saw on the World Wide Auto Parts wep page the change in fitting
of the
front shocks from No RM6075 to No RM8002 was inn 1961/62.

Joesf,

Their catalog (http://nosimport.com/shoxcatalog.htm) shows RM6075 for
the roadsters and RM8002 for the convertibles. Based on the factory
parts list, I don't think that's correct:

AKD 8555 (3rd edition) parts list for BN6 gives 1B4459.

The AKD 1151 (4th edition) parts list for BN7, BT7 and BJ7 shows the
front shock changed during roadster production:

     Original P/N: 1B4459
          New P/N: AYH4040
       Commencing: 17236 BN7 (Wire Wheels)
                 17129 BT7 (Wire Wheels)
                 18484 BT7 (Disc Wheels)

AKD 3523 parts list for BJ7 and BJ8 gives AYH4040.
So 1B4459 is RM6075 and AYH4040 is RM8002.

Off on a tangent: AKD 1151 shows BN7 production ended with car number
18888; BT7 with 19853. BJ7 production started with 17551. The
overlapping numbers would imply that all three series were in production
for a period of time, but the "Original Austin-Healey" by Clausager
states that the BN7 production ended in March 1962, BT7 ended in June
1962 and BJ7 started in May 1962.

Bob,
Many thanks, that`s very helpful. World Wide Auto Parts catalog says
RM6075 up
to the year 1961. That may mean not to the end of BT7/BN7 Production.
Their
catalog also says RM8002 starts with BJ7, which seems to be wrong.

What`s the difference between RM6075 and RM 8002? Is it just on RM6075
there
were slotted screws used and on RM 8002 poxidrive? I have both types in
front
of me and that`s the only visible difference I can see.

The spring rates on the roadsters vs. the convertibles are different
(because the convertibles are heavier); therefore I believe the damping
rates of the shocks are different.

Thats the easy part. The problem is putting the new ones on and getting
the
piping tilted in the right direction,
and getting as little glue on you as possible,

Just release the the old stuff carefully at the edges and lift slowly and
evenly all the way around. Take
care not to pull too much of the foam off if it is glued down.

You may want to send them to Heritage.    Less pain and tears.

Listers,

I ran across Steve Petrosky's website - http://www.driversroad.com.
Several Austin-Healey prints (some that can be customized) at
http://www.driversroad.com/healey.html and one of the '54 streamliner at
http://www.driversroad.com/new.html. Lots of other LBC. A Healey is
featured in "A Day In The Life Of A British Car Owner" cartoon.

Steve customized a Healey 100 print for me (removed the bumpers) and I
purchased a few other prints. Quick turn around. Nice guy to do
business with. NFI.

If anyone needs a set of original BJ8 front disk brake rotors, I have
two.
They're in good shape, with surface rust that probably will come off when
the pads apply pressure, or they can be polished or turned before
installation.

 I reiterate; these rotors are originals, not Chinese. Make a reasonable
offer with shipping.

Bob, Josef,
      Sorry, I was off list for a bit. The shock 6075 and 8002 are
externally identical. The number we use is the Armstrong number
stamped on the underside of each shock casting on the fronts. (on the
rears, the number is stamped on the lower edge of a mounting boss)

         Internally, the valve springs change wire diameter by a few
thousandths. Not terribly significant, and honestly, probably not as
noticeable as a change t radial tires from bias ply.

         The screws are not the difference. Armstrong had running
changes in manufacture over the years going from slotted to posidrive
to Phillips screws all on the same part number. There is usually a
date code on the front shocks into the 1980s. The valve nut (7/8")
also changes over the years as does the seat in the body.

         I have a downladable copy of the Armstrong catalog page for
the Healey shocks if someone wants to host it. And Bob, your numbes
are correct, as both the BMC and the Armstrong numbers are stamped on
the shock base.

         Now.... what about color..... ;-)

Sometimes hitting a bump would cause a knocking noise originating from
the
rear of my Tricarb. It was caused by a badly worn bush on the Panhard
Rod.

Listers,

I ran across Steve Petrosky's website - http://www.driversroad.com.
Several Austin-Healey prints (some that can be customized) at
http://www.driversroad.com/healey.html and one of the '54 streamliner at
http://www.driversroad.com/new.html. Lots of other LBC. A Healey is
featured in "A Day In The Life Of A British Car Owner" cartoon.
Steve customized a Healey 100 print for me (removed the bumpers) and I
purchased a few other prints. Quick turn around. Nice guy to do
business with. NFI.

Cheers,

Reminds me of this email that I received.
Are you sure you didn't try this and forgot to let your wife out???
- - - - Why Some Men Have Dogs And Not Wives:
1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.2. Dogs
don't
notice if you call them by another dog's name.3. Dogs like it if you
leave a
lot of things on the floor.4. A dog's parents never visit.5. Dogs agree
that
you have to raise your voice to get your point across.6. You never have
to
wait for a dog; they're ready to go 24 hours a day.7. Dogs find you
amusing
when you're drunk..8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.9. A dog will
not
wake you up at night to ask, "If I died, would you get another dog?"10.
If a
dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.11. A
dog
will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.12.
If a
dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's
interesting.13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.And
finally:14. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.
To test this theory, lock your wife and your dog in the trunk of your car
for
an hour. Then open it and see who's happy to see you....

Paul: Since the 'knock' comes when "...starting to take off...", my
experience was worn splines on the rear hub/wheel. To quote Norman Nock's
Tech Talk, "The work "clunk" is a very good description of the sound made
by
a worn wire wheel hub or wheel splines..."

Engage the parking brake, jack up the rear wheels, move the wheels back
and
forth and see how much play there is. There is a recommended maximum
movement but I can not find the info at this time.

Listers,

Many cars of the period, especially in the rust belt, has a dark colored
undercoating applied either by the dealer or soon thereafter. This could
and has caused some confusion in the past.
Also OEW 100s often had the engine compartments and other area of the
frame
and chassis painted black from the factory, but as far as we know, this
practice did not continue into the six-cylinder cars.

Cheers,

Curt

I have a dog and a wife, respectively, 145 pounds of Bernese Mountain Dog
and 125 pounds of ... We're not sure. She was adopted.

I know she's not talking to me when she says:
   Where's my big handsome Boy?
   Do you want dinner?
   Want to go out?
   I love you, my big furry boy. (and I have a beard)

I know she is talking to me when I get into bed and she says,
   Did you let the dog in?

I love my wife and she loves me. We joke a lot.
As she likes to say, "29 years and I'm still here. What more proof do you

Mine was undercoated and I think's Z-Bart. At least that's what was
around
the mid-west in the 60's.

I'm sure it's why the the body is in such great

I believe that the tooth belts were developed for alternator equipped
cars. Alternators have smaller pulleys. The toothed belt can wrap
around a smaller pulley than the solid one.

Actually we have seen some specific evidence of a few black engine bays
on
very early Old English White 100/Six models.

Thanks for that information. My neighbor has a very original BN4 body
number 374 (all matching numbers) that was originally OEW but was painted
red in the mid 1970s. I will check the car out this week and see if
there
is evidence of a black engine bay.

BTW the car is for sale and it's one of the most rust free cars I've ever
seen, plus literally no accident damage, shrouds are perfect. In fact
the
rear wing doglegs don't appear to have any rust in them and I don't
believe
they've ever been repaired.

Cheers,

Curt

Email me if interested

Toothed belts wrap around a pulley better, providing more friction
surface and less stress on the belt and bearings. All around a better
solution.

There is a early 3000 on e-bay right now that claims that the rails being
painted black are original. I knew the previous owner/ car and tried to
tell
the current owner/ seller that may not be accurate.

Yes, Most likely a loose shock. When they get to the point where you have
a
"knock", the mounting holes may now have become oval. Rather than just
try to
tighten the old bolts, I would remove them, clean and oil them up and
replace
the nuts with new nylocs.

My 1959 100-6 BN4 generator died (22489B). I acquired a BN1
generator(22456).
The pulley is different between the two and also the rear oiling system.
The
mounting spacing is the same. If I swap the pulleys, is there any other
reason why the BN1 generator could not be used??

I once owned BN4L -0- 31903. It did not have the "gusset" plate in the
bulkhead that we are talking about in this thread. At the time I just
thought
that the factory had forget to weld it in because every Healey I had
owned up
till then had that gusset plate.
By the way, the -0- in the VIN is not a number. It stands for Overdrive.

A toothed belt is less prone to cracking because it is much more
flexible so it lasts much longer on small pulleys. Also grip is better
than the old smooth belts so they can be fitted a bit less tight, saving
the water pump and generator/alternator bearings.

They are basically the same. Actually, the earlier ones are a bit
better built, so I see no problems with this.

I have found steering arms in my attic with a piece of paper saying these
are supposed to be from an AH 100 BN1. There are numbers cast in the
arms. One is "1B6164-CFA9B-1-RH", the other "1B6165 MF B4". I'm not sure
of the correctness of the numbers/letters on the second arm, as it is
hard to read. Much to my surprise I didn't find these numbers in my BN1
parts manual. The numbers for the steering arms in the manual are 1B4312
(R/H) and 1B4311 (L/H). Can somebody shed some light on which steering
arms I hold in my hands, please?

Thanks

FWIW, I don't find those part numbers in the 6 cylinder (BN4-BJ8) parts

Those numbers will not be part numbers you'd find in the Parts List. They
would more likely be casting numbers for the unfinished casting. I
believe
the earlier Hundred arms had threads to receive the through bolts,
whereas
later models had the holes smooth right through and the bolts ran through
to
flat keeper strips and nuts on the other side.

Subject: [Healeys] BN1 steering arms

I have found steering arms in my attic with a piece of paper saying these
are supposed to be from an AH 100 BN1. There are numbers cast in the
arms.
One is "1B6164-CFA9B-1-RH", the other "1B6165 MF B4". I'm not sure of the
correctness of the numbers/letters on the second arm, as it is hard to
read.
Much to my surprise I didn't find these numbers in my BN1 parts manual.
The
numbers for the steering arms in the manual are 1B4312 (R/H) and 1B4311
(L/H). Can somebody shed some light on which steering arms I hold in my
hands, please?

Thanks

Eric

In Au, we   have a late 6 cyl car, pretty well documented from new.
Delivered   in undercoat/primer
Delivered   to the DHMCo
And guess   what?
The DHMCo   didn't pull the engine to paint the car..
Engine bay was undercoat. Or primer. Can't remember.
He's not my accountant.
Just sayin.

Just put up a dozen or so new items on my site including:

Wire sizes and power limits
Freeze plug installation
Oil in cooling system fix
Water Valves (Taps)
Repairing odometers
Homemade Soda blaster
Drip Pan fabrication (could also title it how to make something to stop
the

More goodies from the fertile mind of Charlie Hart
Pedal extension fabrication
Shock Catalog
Much more

AND, a whole bunch of new links including a link to Ira Erbs restoration
photos. All links were tested and fixed over the past weekend. It is too
damn cold outside to do anything else so there will be a lot more updates
over the next week.

Many thanks to all who have given me material for the benefit of the

Thanks to those who commented on fan belt type. I figured a tooted belt
would bend more easily, and you all confirmed my lay engineering
understanding.

What are the advantages, if any, of a toothed fan belt over a solid one?
Any list wisdom on pros/cons?

Thanks for all the comments on the rear knocking noise....

Consensus seems to be splines, shock mounts or splined hubs...

I'll keep you posted.

Yes, Most likely a loose shock. When they get to the point where you have
a
"knock", the mounting holes may now have become oval. Rather than just
try
to
tighten the old bolts, I would remove them, clean and oil them up and
replace
the nuts with new nylocs.

Thanks for all the responces so far. I like to share with the group when
I
learn something new. I did learn that the BN1 puts out 22 max. cont.
output
(amps) and the BN4 puts out 25 max. cont. output (amps). So there is a 3
amp
difference. Is this a big deal? I'm not sure, but would think so?

Actually, the 22 amp might actually be better, less chance of frying
your VR if you drain the battery.

As long as you don't have a high powered boom box or 4 fog lights on
the front you should be fine.

The gen will normally be only charging minimally anyway.

The regulator, Lucas 37183, is used from the BN1 through the BJ7. The
BJ8 used Lucas 37331. This would mean, I believe, that the output
should be consistently close to the same for all cars up the to the BJ8.

It depends on which electrical consumers you use. The simple equation is:

amps (needed) = watts divided by volts

Just add up the watts of all eletrical consumers (headlights, wipers,
blower, lamps, radio, etc.), divide this number by 12 (or better 13) and
you'll get the amps the dynamo/alternator should be able to generate at
least, if you use all these consumers at the same time. No need to add
the watts of the starter motor, as this is fed from the battery for
obvious reasons.

The 25 amp generator is good for about 325 watts, while the 22 amp
generator will only serve 285 watts consumers. Consumers with the highest
consume rate are typically the headlights.

Thanks for all the responces so far. I like to share with the group when
I
learn something new. I did learn that the BN1 puts out 22 max. cont.
output
(amps) and the BN4 puts out 25 max. cont. output (amps). So there is a 3
amp
difference. Is this a big deal? I'm not sure, but would think so?

Let's say you were driving at night during rain. Headlights on (~120 w),
lamps (~40 w), wipers (~40 w), blower for demisting the windscreen (~40
w) and you have a consumption of about 240 watts. The 22 amp gen puts
out 285 watts at a maximum, and I've not calculated the power needed for
the ignition and maybe other small consumers. Not to forget the max
output figures counted for new gens and have always been on the
optimistic side.

Actually, the 22 amp might actually be better, less chance of frying
your VR if you drain the battery.

As long as you don't have a high powered boom box or 4 fog lights on
the front you should be fine.

The gen will normally be only charging minimally anyway.

Not quite correct. The voltage regulator doesn't control the output, but
the voltage. The output is measured in watts, which in turn are dependent
on voltage and current. Voltage is stabilized at about 12.7 volts by the
regulator and the current produced depends on the demand of all
electrical consumers. So we can say that the generator output is
"controlled" (or better determined) by the demand of the consumers. Max
output is limited by the generator's ability.

The generator output is controlled by the Voltage Regulator not the

I think the question should be what the max output is. As you can read in
my earlier mail (response to the Nocks) the output is not determined by
the voltage regulator. And the BJ8 used to have a Lucas C42 gen installed
unlike the earlier Healeys, which had a C45 installed. I believe that the
C42 was capable of a higher max output rate.

The regulator, Lucas 37183, is used from the BN1 through the BJ7. The
BJ8 used Lucas 37331. This would mean, I believe, that the output
should be consistently close to the same for all cars up the to the BJ8.

May I chip in here.

What matters with a generator is that it must not overheat as it will
burn out if taken much above its maximum output rating. This is why
regulation voltage is set at a given temperature. The regulation voltage
is allowed to increase if the temperature is lower and therefore the
cooling air is more effective. Interestingly the C45 generator had its
output rating increased prior to its application on A-H with just an
improved fan and no other change.

The current that flows and therefore the amount of heat generated
internally depends on the difference between the regulation voltage and
the destination voltage. This being the battery. A low charge battery
will take more current than one that is fully charged because the
battery voltage rises as it takes charge.

However with a low battery and the extra load of the headlamps etc, the
voltage difference might be too high such that more current flows than
is safe. Therefore on the two coil regulator there is another current
winding that reduces the regulation voltage to a point where the
generator current is safe. On a three coil regulator maximum current is
more carefully controlled so a maximum figure is quoted from the same
basic generator.

Thinner brushes also helped but I will not go into this.

 From what I have read the C42 was improved such that it could run hotter
safely and therefore give a higher output although being smaller.

G'day Chris

I just happen to know about this car - and yes he is my accountant.
Incestuous lot we Austin-Healey owners are.

It is a dark blue BJ7 that was despatched new on 15 March 1963 to the
Donald
Healey Motor Company. Nothing unusual about that, but the current owner
when
he received the Heritage Certificate found out that it was delivered
finished in primer.

A request for information to Geoffrey Healey didn't reveal much, but a
later
letter to Brian Healey was quite the opposite.

Bic stated that he could recall selling a 3000 to a customer who wanted
his
car in a dark blue colour. So the DHMC had one delivered in primer and
then
had it painted. Brian also said that while the outside of the car was
painted, the engine bay was left in primer as the owner wasn't prepared
to
go to the expense of stripping out the engine bay for painting.

Many years later the car was restored and a decision had to be made to
leave
the engine bay as it was or paint it in the dark blue. It was painted.

Hope this helps.

Listers,

FYI, the so called circular depressions on the head, i.e., the four
little
indents around the phillips head slots are there to denote that the screw
is
a Unified fastener, 10/32 in this case, versus a British fastener which
would have been 2BA. They are very close but not interchangeable.

So while you can find the correct fasteners at your local hardware store,
don't expect to find then with these markings on the head. Unified
British
fasteners were marked during the 1950's to distinguish them from the
older
British thread forms that were being phased out, e.g., Whitworth (BSF,
BSW,
etc.) and British Association (BA).

On British bolt heads there was an actual circular depression on the
heads
of Unified (UNF, UNC) fasteners. Nuts and studs were also marked to
denote
the difference.

Cheers,

Curt

And you're reaching Southern Ontario...we finally got a bit of snow.

Healey content...examined some carefully preserved 56 year old interior
trim
today and most of it is in good enough condition to be going back into a
restoration we're doing. Yes!!!!

LA freeways turned into parking lots.   Nobody here knows how to drive in
the
rain!

http://www.sigalert.com/Map.asp?Region=Greater+Los+Angeles

Taking time
off for the next 2 weeks and hope to make some good progress on the car!
Planned: Front-suspension fix, some minor engine refurbishing (was
rebuild by
PO), mate and paint engine/gearbox, finish and install rear axle, finish
rebuild of switches, brake/fuel plumbing and further assembly... picking
up 48
spokers next week (for under the xmas tree ;-) )

Now that sounds like fun!

Hi,

I have found a good-looking engine for my BN4 to replace the younger
3000ccm
unit. The engine code is 26H though.
What can be the origin of the engine?

Well, it got up past freezing and while there is no snow in the forecast,
I
decided to crank up the old snow thrower. Seeing that it needed gas, I
decided to take the Healey to the gas station with my gas can. 33 degree
wind means frozen ears but it is still fun. Probably the last chance I
will
have before March. This is the latest I have had it out since I left Las
Vegas 10 years ago.

It'll probably be out of an A99 or 6/110 or something like that.   It

Gee, no email for a a short while and people wonder if the world
has come to an end. Well, it did, in terms of Team.Net last week, but
luckily it didn't last long. If you want to wait for time and all
eternity
between messages, you could subscribe to some of the Team.Net lists
like the-local, or chapman-era, or maybe single-malt. To see them all,
go to http://www.team.net/mailman/listinfo

The ones I mentioned along with some others see maybe a few messages
a year, not a few every hour. Personally I'd like to see everyone
subscribed
to the-local, a place to discuss whatever you'd like, car related or not.
A place to whine about overdoing Christmas, bad drivers, stupid
politicians
or lame jokes or whatever. And no one can complain about off-topic
messages.

Oh well, I try to make useful stuff available, sometimes it works,
sometimes
it doesn't.

Be careful here....Smiths made the same angle drives which turn in the
opposite direction... but externally look identical to the 6 cylinder

If anyone needs one of those be sure to contact me!!

Ken, You don't mention what it is made of, but I'll assume that it is
vinyl. SEM makes a good vinyl paint/dye, but check out a place called
Color Plus (colorplus.com). They specialize in leather restoration
products, but they also can be used for vinyl. Check out the customer
reviews and also the About Leather information.

Subject: [Healeys] 26H engine
Message-ID: <005401cb9f29$500261c0$6401a8c0@9535DEE118EC44B>

Going by the BMC Workshop Manuals:

The first six cylinders carried on using the 1C ( first series C-type
engine)
number system, with an "H" denoting High Compression.

The numbering system was changed from late 1957 on, and was now three
groups
separated by slashes:

In the "First Prefix Group":
- the number is the displacement, ie. 26 = 2.6 liter, or   8 = 850cc

- the first letter is the BMC make, ie. M is for Morris, G for MG, R for
Riley, V for Princess, W for Wolseley, J for Commercial and......wait for
it
Gergo.......H is for "Miscellaneous Special".

'A' for Austin as a first letter is not found on Austin motors. ( for
eg. the
first 3 liter A-99 had only a '29' motor, but the similar Wolseley had a
'29W' motor.

- the second letter after the displacement (or the first one after, for
Austins) is for "variations of engine type". Here, an 'A' was used as a
First Variation. For eg. the second model of 3 liter Austin, the A-110,
had a
'29A' motor, and the corresponding Princess Mk II had a '29VA' motor.
The
Austin motors in the Healey 3000 had 29D,E,F and K variations.

 The "Second Prefix Group" has to do with the gearbox, R being Laycock
overdrive (O is Borg Warner), and U being side or centershift (as opposed
to
column shift).

The third group is the serial number, preceded by a high (H) or low (L)
compression indicator.

........so is there anything interesting about your 26H motor ?

Yesterday we had our Queensland club Christmas lunch. We drove the BN1

Ward Special about 100km (60 miles) each way. A few miles from the venue,
I
noticed the speedo was reading 120 miles an hour (itb s a 140 mph

were in fact doing about 40. On the way back, eventually the needle went
off
the scale and ended up against the back side of the stop. Currently itb s
indicating a tad over 140mph, with the car sitting in the garage! I had
the
speedo recalibrated when I got the car about 7 years ago, as it hadnb t
been

Hi Peter,

The speedo operates by a spinning magnet generating magnetic currents in
an aluminum disk which causes this disk to spin.    This disk is
connected to the pointer through a shaft as well as a little spring which
keeps this disk from continuing to rotate.

It sounds to me that this spring is loose or broken. Most likely the
gauge will need to be fixed at a smiths instruments repair shop.

I used following pdf to guide me in the restoration of my speedo and
tach. Both springs were ok on my instruments and I was very careful
around them. There is a diagram at page 5 or 6.

cheers,

Hi Peter,

When driving home from a vintage car event last autumn I had a similar
experience. I reduced the speed and the speedo showed an increase and
little
later went the wrong way round to 0 again.
To avoid possible damage I stopped and disconnected the speedo cable. At
home I took the speedo out of the car and with a screwdriver it moved as
it
should. Then I took out the t-piece for my Halda Twinmaster, reconnected
the
speedo cable directly and it did work again.

When I took out the Halda t-piece and checked it, it was full with
totally
stiff grease. Kind of a miracle that this did not happen during the
rally.

Cheers

Reinhart

I've been fiddling with speedometers for several years with varying
degrees of success and frustration. While the
return spring--which looks like something that came out of a large watch-
-is a possible culprit there is often no
obvious cause for a problem. The document by Anthony Rhodes is about the
only reference available, but it doesn't cover
all the possible failure scenarios.

Depending on how much you want to learn about this device and your
confidence with things both mechanical and mystical,
you can either send it out for repair or take a stab at it. I would at
least open up the speedo and have a look, being
very careful to not lose any of the fiddly bits (pretend you're doing
brain surgery). Sometimes the cause is obvious--I
had a cracked odometer gear once which caused the needle to jump at a
regular interval--and sometimes (usually) it's not.

If nothing's obviously broken you can clean the insides with 'electrical
circuit cleaner'--DO NOT use 'electrical parts
cleaner', it will remove paint--and lightly lubricate the moving parts.
I prefer light silicone oil for both the guts
of the speedo and the cable (I've tried everything from white grease to
graphite to nothing for the cable).

Have a look at the cable while you're at it. The adapter, cable, sheath
and speedometer comprise a true system, and all
have to cooperate in harmony in order to get a decent approximation of
your actual velocity.

Perhaps grinding down the bolt heads to about three mm thick and/or
fitting them without washers (use Locktite instead to secure) will give
you sufficient space?
Problem with spacers is that you often have to change the wheel studs or
bolts for longer items as well.
Universal aluminium spacers are available in many thicknesses and wheel
bolt patterns, have a look at ebay

Ran across this in my winter USAA   magazine.



 We embodied the old military clichi of having to have the hot sports
car,
she says, reminiscing about the red Jensen-Healey convertible they drove
away in after her husband s graduation from West Point in 1974. It was
one
of those dream cars, but it also cost us a ton of money

The proud owners and USAA members took the snazzy car to their post in
Italy, where it spent long hours at the repair shop.

Jim,

To paraphrase Yoda, There is no ICH, there is only 1CH. Peter carefully
explained this 1CH was for the "first" series of engine.

Sometimes the factory was known to sub other digit stamps but this was
only
an occasional anomaly.

There's a number of nice Healeys, both in Phoenix and in Tucson.

Hi,

I am planning an adventure.
I have bought a 2.6 engine in the UK for my bn4 to replace the non-
original
2.9 now fitted.
Instead of shipping it home and reconditioning it here, I have decided to
travell to the UK, and do the engine there.
A skilled and well recognised engine reconditioner/builder offered me to
do
the engine and at the same time teach me the basics of engine machinery,
if
I help him in his daily work.
Naturaly I have to supply the parts for the job.
His workshop is situated just west of London, soo I am looking for decent
engine parts supply store in the west-london area. Any suggessions?

Hi Gergo,
Congratulations, it seems you have found your engine. Which head do you
use
now, two or six port? You also need the right carbs + inlet manifold for
your
100/6.

AH Spares is about an hour`s drive from West-London. Ahead4Healeys and
Denis
Welch`s are a bit further, but also reachable in less than two hours.
Cheers,

Not these days. You cannot even decently travel at all at the moment.

I used an engine reconditioner recently who could find almost anything
and had a long list of contacts and found all that was needed for my
engine very quickly. He also, because of his long background, knew what
inferior parts to avoid. If your reconditioner has the same experience
of our age of engines I would leave it up to him to find the spares.

On the driver's side of my BT7 is a flexible tube that is supposed to

air into the cockpit by ram action.

Can anyone of those privileged to use their cars year round tell me what
the
inside diameter of the air intake assembly (on page R43 of the parts
manual)   that the tube is connected to?

There are a number of round 12V fans available from electronic surplus

flow when stopped.

Hi Josef,
This was by bare accident. I have found one on ebay for a very good price
(embrassingly low I mean). It is a late 2.6 block from an unknown car
(maybe
A105?) with 6 port head.
The engine number is 26H - I was told here, that "H" stands for
"miscelaneous" origin :). Soo must be good for my car. Or? What do You
think?
The carbs/inlet now on the 3000 engine are not good for my application?
It
looks they are not originals for this 3000 (it should have the cold start
extra carb attached, but instead this is a plain twin H6s).

Unfortunatly this engine reconditioner has not firsthand expeiences with
the
C-series. I think its my share to get hold of the parts needed. Though I
would be realy gratefull for any hints what to look for and what to
avoid.

Hi Gergo,
Congratulations, If you have got an engine with the 6port head plain HD6
Carbs
without the cold start extra carb should be right. For early 2port heads
H4
without the cold start are right. All 100/6s had manual chokes with a
pull
button under the dashboard. So if your carbs are HD6 and not as you have
written H6, you have the right carbs and you can use them with your new
100/6
engine.

Cheers,
Josef

Hi Josef,
This was by bare accident. I have found one on ebay for a very good price
(embrassingly low I mean). It is a late 2.6 block from an unknown car
(maybe
A105?) with 6 port head.
The engine number is 26H - I was told here, that "H" stands for
"miscelaneous"
origin :). Soo must be good for my car. Or? What do You think?
The carbs/inlet now on the 3000 engine are not good for my application?
It
looks they are not originals for this 3000 (it should have the cold start
extra carb attached, but instead this is a plain twin H6s).

Rich - I realize Yoda has spoken, but I am simply requesting additional
wisdom
and knowledge that the learned one possesses, if he is willing to share?

I can only speak from the Longbridge BN4 engines, that I have seen and it
appears that the "I" may not have been an occasional anomaly. But then
again I
am not a Concours judge.

Hello,
I am unclear why you are doing this? Are wanting a concourse show car?
This seems like a great expense to downgrade your car from the better
3000
set up IMHO.
Adventure indeed!
Keep is informed as to your progress. As for suppliers, other than those
listed. Check out John Sim wonderful site www.healey6.com.
All suppliers are as close as your post box

There is a lever inside of the rear brake drum that is part of the
parking brake assembly. Should it be zinc plated or painted silver?
Mine was silver but I may have painted it earlier in this decade.

Jack, Many years ago I had the same idea on my BJ8 as to increase the
air
flow through the left hand fresh air duct too. I noticed that the right
hand
side heater blower housing could have the motor assembled on either side
of
the housing. So I took a heater blower from a junked Healey at a
wrecking
yard and reversed the assembly of the motor and housing so I could mount
the
blower on the left hand inner fender in a mirror image of the right side.
I
found that the blower cage turned in the wrong direction to eject the air
out
of the outlet in an efficient manner, so I opened up the motor housing
and
reversed the wiring to the field windings and was able to reverse the
direction of the motor rotation too. Then I had the problem of the hose
on
the left side of the car being larger in diameter than the one on the
heater
side. I made shims out of aluminum strips and built up the diameter of
the
hose conections on the blower housing and firewall connection so I could
used
the same original hose. I used a toggle switch on an accessory switch
panel
to control it. I don't remember the size of the hose or the inner
diameter of
the hose connection at the firewall. I do remember a mention of some one
on
the list mounting a small fan in the inlet at the firewall to boost the
air
flow and there were pictures, but can't find it in the archives. Maybe
you
can give it a try or someone on the list will remember.

Make this up, did not I .

The breakdown of chassis and engine numbers is found in most period
factory
Workshop Manuals for all the various BMC models. They all clearly state
that
the "H" stands for "Miscellaneous SPECIAL".

What's the rest of the number, by the way? What does it have for gearbox
info
? If "26H" is the only thing on the plate, it would confirm that its
something out of the ordinary. I'd be all over that motor with a fine-
tooth
comb.

And Jim, Clausager refers to the "1 C" number, written like that, in a
couple
of places, including the engine numbers chart on p.57. Maybe yours is a
Roman
Numeral "1", like in Spitfire Mark IX, or maybe the guy lost his punch
and
used the "I". Sheesh.

Force-fully yours
Y.

IMHO an axial-flow bilge-blower is a better way to go on the fresh air
inlet vs trying to mirror the stock heater blower.

One of our Austin Healey Association (So Calif) members, George McHarris
has installed one on his BN2 and it's a very clean installation.

Y - thanks for your wisdom, and Sheesh? as always.
 I actually do have the same remarks directly from Clausager about the
"1" vs
the "I".

The only thing I can say is that there appears to be more Longbridge BN4
2
portheads out there with the "I" rather than the "1" on the engine plate.

but again so much for Healey trivia - jim lesher

Jack, I took another look at the archives and used the term "duct fan"
in the
search window and item number "10" came up with a link
http://www.hopkins-carter.com/catalog/Blowers.htm to a company that sells
bilge blowers as Steve Gerow suggested. On the left column select
"Electrical Equipment" and then select from the middle of the page in the
upper row "Blowers & Fans" and they have a large selection to choose
from.
Several 3 inch and 4 inch 12 volt axial and centrifugal flow blowers.
Hope
this helps.

Hello Ira,

Being honest I have also lamented on this engine problem for a while
before
making my decision. This is my first Healey. I hope not the last :). I am
restoring cars as a passion. I did some other BMC cars recently. I have
long
realized that I find my joy in building the cars, and only enjoy them for
a
short period. After this I usualy let them go, and look for another
mission.

Although I am not a diehard originalist, I would like to keep/restore my
cars near to the factory spec. Or at least at a level, from where factory
originality could be reached without much efforts. Thats why I would like
to
build this car with a 2.6 engine rather than using the 3000.
But at the same time I would easily accept using a 6 port head on this
engine rather than the 2 port. This is something which can be altered any
time with not much work.
And in my opinion, a 2.6 engine with a 6 port head is not much worse than
a
3000. Or?
What are the point the 3000 is better than the 2.6?

Gergo

My BN4 has an I instead of a 1... Never actually noticed until now.

Y - thanks for your wisdom, and Sheesh? as always.
 I actually do have the same remarks directly from Clausager about the
"1" vs
the "I".

The only thing I can say is that there appears to be more Longbridge BN4
2
portheads out there with the "I" rather than the "1" on the engine plate.

but again so much for Healey trivia - jim lesher

I wouldn't worry too much. The housing market tanked so badly here
that there are TONS of vacant houses and just as many new houses that
have never been occupied.

The local economy is so bad that even the illegals are going back
south of the border.

By all means, come to las vegas.

Similar climate, no state taxes and housing values at 40% of 2007 values
(and 25% below true market)

Never been a better time to move here (unless you need a job)

Why is a 3000 engine better than a 2.6?
First, the engines are virtually identical on the exterior. The only
visible
difference is the boss on the block where the engine number plate is
placed.
Only an expert can discern the difference. ( I am talking about a later
100-6
with the 6 port head).
As for the interior, everything is identical except for the 2.6 block
that has
the smaller bore and the smaller pistons. Otherwise, the crankshaft,
rods,
heads, valve size, and every other engine component is identical to the
3000.
Camshafts are the same with minor profile variations.
 So why use the 3000 engine? Because the 2.6 liter engine (2639 cc) was
weak
and not fun to drive and the 3000 engine (2912 cc) produced a lot more
power -
almost 300 more cc's - that's a 10% increase in displacement !!!!!
That is why people put 3000 engines into 100-6s. Not the other way
around.

Gergo -

I've driven both 3000's and 100/6s, also 100/6s with gallery heads. At
the
end of the day, the difference in power between all the different
versions
isn't all that noticeable for every day driving. Yes, the Mk III motor
is
more powerful, but even the gallery head 100/6 has pretty good pick up...
I
think if you go with the 12 port head, HD6s and a Mk III cam, it will be
as
fast as your 3000 motor... and you'll get better mileage in the process.

Cheers,

Alan

I would really think this through in light of you desire to sell it at
some
future date.
The 3000 engine has more BHP. If the current engine is in running
condition,
you will be ahead of the game as you can do a compression check and on
it.
As I said before, I had a BN4 with 3000 engine. The car was wrecked, so
I
bought a 3000 body to put the engine into. Front disk brakes vs drum in
the
BN4.
I think the resale value with the 3000 would be better than the 2.6, even
with the 6 port head. Others might have a different opinion.
If your 3000 engine is in need of rebuiilding, rebuild it. Its cheaper
than
buying an unknown block.
There so many places that matter (show) to spend money on. if its an
early
Longbridge car, it has unique soft top frame and interior features to
consider.I am restoring my car a 1960 BT7. I have updated my Carbs to
HD8s
and a cable throttle to replace the stock contraption.

I feel you should build your car anyway you want, including putting a V8
in
it. I was just trying to figure out why you would spend so much money on
an
inferior engine. Concourse judging would be the only reason I could see.
Again IMHO. These are fun cars to drive and work on,I have had mine for
36
years.
This list has amazing people on it with detailed information on the
smallest
part.
have fun, ask question, and then do whatever the hell you want.
cheers

Just one suggestion.
Before you move to Vegas, Phoenix, or thereabout, I suggest you spend a
couple of weeks there in July and August.
I have known people who have moved there in Feb and moved back in
September
after one summer in Phoenix.
Phoenix brings new meaning to the term "Burn you ass black upholstery" in
your average LBC.

Gentlemen,
There is very little difference between a stock later 100/Six engine at
117
BHP and the early 3000 engine at a stock 124 BHP. Certainly for normal
road
use the noticeable difference would be very little.
Resale??? A 100/Six should be best valued as a 100/Six.

I will never understand why more displacement, horsepower, torque, etc.
is
always perceived as better, especially as these cars become more and more
collectable. Each model stood its own in its period of time, and
sometimes
it's fun to try to capture that machine as it was in its moment of time
and
development.
Modify....improve....faster....bigger....Why is that always thought of as
better???
Of course to each his/her own and what motivates one just doesn't apply
to
the next.

I'm currently building up an early 100/Six series BN4 complete with the 2
port gallery head, 4 wheel drum brakes, etc. and having a ball
researching
all the early details to get everything right.

My question to him has always been.... If the 3000 engine is good, there
is
no reason short of concourse judging to switch out the engine. if it is
beyond rebuilding, then sure get an original or 3000 block if available.

one of the first things you learn living here in vegas is that "only mad
dogs and englishmen go out in the noonday sun." i always get my stuff
done early in the morning or late in the evening and hole up in my garage
with the swamp cooler going full blast in the afternoon. i try not to
take notice of those people who have to be out and about in the hot sun
so i will not have to feel sorry for them.   hjim

What Rick says about the Phoenix Metropolitan area is true. July and
August can be oppressive if you're not used to it. In the past 10
years the growth of the city has only made it worse. Our air quality
is lower, the nightime temperatures don't drop, and the overall
humidity has increased. So please, don't move here. :)

But, Phoenix is not the state of Arizona. Our overall geography is
such that we have everything from super hot deserts, to 12,000 foot
mountains with snow year round. Were I able to move here without
having to worry about a job I'd seriously look at
Prescott/Payson/Wikenburg/Flagstaff in the north and Tucson/Casa
Grande/Sierra Vista/Bisbee/Tombstone/etc in the south.

My wife and I are actually planning to move the family   down to Sierra
Vista in a couple years. It's rural but not too rural,   an hour to
Tucson if we need a city or a proper airport, and with   it's elevation
doesn't get much above 90 in the summer or below 50 in   the winter.

And I'll admit that the Tucson British Car crowd is generally more
active than Phoenix not to mention a fun bunch to hang out with. I
often drive down from where I am (Tempe) to hang out with them.

If you do have to move to Phoenix be smart and move to the fringes of
the city. The further away from the tons of concrete and asphalt you
are the cooler it is.

But remember, you don't have to shovel sunshine. :)

As I told Mike in separate email, here in Tucson we DO go out in the
mid-day sun. Every August TBCR hosts the "100 Miles at over 100 Degrees"
run for
British cars. You can run anything from a BN1 to a new MINI...just
British.
We do this run and end at a gelato shop for cool refreshments. We have
had
great participation and no DNFs.

Nope....you guys are all wrong.

The place to be is the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs area) in
California.
Small airport, easy to get around, no congestion 2 hours to everywhere.
More moderate climate.

Gentlemen,

Thanks everybody for the input.
I only sell my cars to be able to switch to the next project. Soo overall
value is not all that important. My fun needs the original 2.6 engine,
soo
if only possible, I will go with that. I dont care if it means extra
money.
It is a game anyway :).

Soo if I take You right, it is possible to use my 3000 head with this
block
isnt it?

Ira,
here in continental Europe we can realise its going different to your
opinion.
A 100/6 is more worth with an original 2.6 engine, than with a 2.9
engine.
Also owners go back to drum brakes in the front as they give the 100/6
appeal.
The wrong 26H engine number would not bother me too much, as this is
interchangeable like a cylinder head. Its more important the engine is
done by
a reputable engine rebuilder and this can be prooved by invoices. And the
body
and professional paintwork is well done with even gaps at the doors and
lids.
So we do not care that much about Concours features like painting engine
all
over or using the old original bolts and fasteners. Using stainless
bolts or
a stainless exhaust is fully acceptable. Also many go with the Sonnenland
top
material as used with modern convertibles instead of the everflex.

It's free and really well done, plus they gave me a really nice review

the
articles and pictures here really well worth it and the fact that it's
all

    Have a look and see what I'm talking about.

One thing I am checking IS the yearly weather outlook for any region I am
considering. The way it is raining here in San Bernardino, it does not
look
desirable, even here in SoCal.

Just one suggestion.
Before you move to Vegas, Phoenix, or thereabout, I suggest you spend a
couple of weeks there in July and August.
I have known people who have moved there in Feb and moved back in
September
after one summer in Phoenix.
Phoenix brings new meaning to the term "Burn you ass black upholstery" in
your average LBC.

one of the first things you learn living here in vegas is that "only mad
dogs
and englishmen go out in the noonday sun." i always get my stuff done
early
in the morning or late in the evening and hole up in my garage with the
swamp
cooler going full blast in the afternoon. i try not to take notice of

After reading various postings I realize there are two groups of people
owning healeys. One group are what I call "Car guys" guys who love cars
and
what they can do , The second group are historians who are interested in
Healeys as a collectible antique. collectibles are kept in museums. Car
guys
want to drive cars on today's highways with car's with today's
technology.
Cars today respond quickly, stop quickly and owners of these cars expect
other cars on the road to also be able to respond in the same manner.
Keeping
a car completely original has its place but perhaps not on today's road.
Modifying a desirable car doesn't hurt the value of a car if the
modifications
are done well. There is a very large market of people who enjoy a sports
car
as a car that performs and handles well on the highway.Many of you may
remember the slogan from the 60's
"Win on Sunday, sell on Monday!" ts always about the performance.

Gentlemen,

There is very little difference between a stock later 100/Six engine at
117
BHP and the early 3000 engine at a stock 124 BHP. Certainly for normal
road
use the noticeable difference would be very little.
Resale??? A 100/Six should be best valued as a 100/Six.
I will never understand why more displacement, horsepower, torque, etc.
is
always perceived as better, especially as these cars become more and more
collectable. Each model stood its own in its period of time, and
sometimes
it's fun to try to capture that machine as it was in its moment of time
and
development.
Modify....improve....faster....bigger....Why is that always thought of as
better???
Of course to each his/her own and what motivates one just doesn't apply
to
the next.

I'm currently building up an early 100/Six series BN4 complete with the 2
port gallery head, 4 wheel drum brakes, etc. and having a ball
researching
all the early details to get everything right.

Rich

One of the things I like about all Big Healeys is that they can keep
up with modern traffic. We're not talking about MG TCs, which I like
but wouldn't want to drive on a Southern California freeway except in
convoy. No stock Healey is going to win a drag race; that is not the
point.

So perhaps there are more than two groups of Healey people. They
range from Nasty Boy people through serious competitive racers, guys
who just like to play with their Healey's engine, drivers and enjoyers
of stock Healeys in club activities, to those possessed by 'hanger
queens'. Then there are busted knuckle and greasy fingered people
like me who just want to get their cars on the road some day.

I'd get a Miata or a hot Mustang if modern car performance was my
objective.

This is a trite oversimplification at best and pure bullshit at worst.

I own a 'new technology' car (2008 Bullitt with 315HP) and a nearly bone-
stock BJ8, and I drive the hell out of both of
them.   I've got over 100K miles on the BJ8 all over the western US,
Canada and Mexico including 115degF in a sand storm
in Death Valley, snow-covered passes and mile after mile of deserted
Nevada desert.   I never have any trouble holding
my own with 'new technology' in the Healey--what it lacks in 'technology'
can easily be compensated for with
attentiveness, guile and plain driving skill and training.

Most 'owners of these <newer technology> cars' don't have a clue about
automotive technology--it's an appliance to them.

On the back of the rear drum backing plates a lever sticks out that
is connected to the hand brake cross rod.

Is the lever zinc plated or painted; perhaps silver?

I would agree. Austin Healeys can be safely driven in todays traffic.
It's a
feature that means a lot to me.

It's also a feature that bodes well for the future of Austin Healey.

Beyond that I'm in a group it is that finds itself fascinated with
writings of
those able to highlight the rough and fine points of the margue.
Spending
time there elevates my appreciation all things Austin Healey - beginning
to
end. Thank you so much.

Any bushings I've bought over the last few years have been solid, not
split.
I suppose a split bushing could be installed over the rod and into the
eyelet without any dismantling of the rod assembly, but I fit the new
solid
bushing as things are going together and have never found the need to
replace one unless a total restoration is under way. The originals seem
to
last almost forever unless they've been torched or covered in paint.

Martin,

Your statements show that you know little if nothing about Austin Healey
Concours as it is currently organized and setup. We go out of our way to
encourage Austin Healeys to be driven, more so than any other marque
specific Concours group currently in existence.

In fact, our cars restored to original condition are more than capable of
handling modern roads and driving conditions, with the only limitation
being
an individual owners reluctance to drive them as such. This is one
reason
we allow radial tires on all Austin Healeys with a full five point credit
for a car being driven 500 miles in the 6 months prior to be judged.
There
is also no deduction for using an aluminum head on a 100 since they are
virtually indistinguishable from the original externally but internally
they
vastly enhance performance and reliability. Just two examples , but
there
are many more.

I personally take exception to you classifying me as NOT being a car guy
as
you state, just because I promote and encourage our cars to be restored
as
original and to be driven. Or possibly it is you who has the issue with
Austin Healey Concours since our guidelines have a standard 50 point
deduction for replacement...* "Frames that can be visually determined to
differ from what was "correct" when the car was new."*

BTW, Kilmartin frames receive no such deduction.

Cheers,

Message-ID:
<AANLkTinUe=u81M=gFNtsGFF6o7oxmrffhWMeMMB+TPRe@mail.gmail.com>

Listers,

Recently had a new top installed on a BJ8, Now, when the windows are
rolled
up and the door is swung closed, the rear of the glass overlaps the top
canvas by about 1'. The window line is perfect with the windscreen
post/frame. So there's no way to move the window forward. But I can't see
any way to move the topbows rearward. What adjustments can be made to the
top bows.
Is there any web site with instructions for adjusting. Or does anyone
have
any insight as to how to correct this lousy fit?
Thanks in advance,
Bob

As I look back on my life of almost 81 years I can only thank all of the
Healey Enthusiasts, the world over, who have helped me enjoy 60 years of
owning several of these wonderful cars. Until recent years I have not had
to
endure the prominence of some who In spite of their commanding presence
and
responsibility for the lives of many in their occupation seem, in
contrast, to
carry their emotion upon their sleeves. Perhaps it is the state of our
times
that is promoting this behavior or perhaps it is the mistaken view that
their
prominence carries over into their private lives. What ever it is I hope
that
they will find time to adjust their emotional responses to compliment
their
presence and responsibility.

Bob,

Its not the car or the bows, its the incorrect tailoring of the top
itself.

My fix was to unpick and open up the long diagonal seam on each rear
quarter
panel, and take out a long, thin triangle of top material. It tapered
from
about 1 1/2 " at the bottom to a sharp point at the top of the seam
where the
curve to the horizontal begins. Test fit and mark with chalk first
before
cutting, and don't forget to leave a seam allowance.

Dismantle the whole top from the bows and rear channel in order to fit it
into
the sewing machine and resew to the chalk marks. Seal seam with VLP
Vinyl
Repair on the inside. Refit top. Steam out stretch marks.

An imperfect solution, as the whole rear quarter shape becomes a little
bit
distorted, and a real pain to have to do in the first place.

Curt,

      You are way off base about Martin. He knows Austin Healeys and all
about concours. He believes in keeping Healeys on the road and has made
it his life's endeavor.

  We all have our opinion what is ok to do with our cars and what is not,
but isn't that the car culture as a whole?

Happy Holidays,

Message-ID: <16E10AA82E01422DB7407D06CFA7F0DD@charleygmd4th1>

    Since there are a few current 'threads' about the subject, I will
recount
my, fairly recent, experience.

    Again, in my experience, Robbins' tops and tonneaus are actually
'built'
at a job shop (or other job shops) and then shipped direct to the
purchaser.
The directions included can be confusing, and might be incomplete.
Communicating (e-mail and telephone) with Robbins is much less than
satisfactory and with the job shop, impossible.

    Bottom line, Robbins customers are strongly urged (by Robbins) to
have any
Robbins product installed by a "professional, certified Robbins" shop.
Any
(ANY) problems are, and will be, the fault of the customer if attempts
are
made to install the items yourselves.

    The tops and/or tonneaus shipped may, or may not, be the correct one
for
your car. They may be assembled incorrectly; if so, that will also be
'your
fault'.

    Ultimately, the 'certified professional' I used said that Robbins
products
and service have degraded quite a bit in the past few years.

    I have installed non-Robbins tops and tonneaus in the past with
nothing
more than the usual inconveniences.

     Grain of salt, fire suit on, etc, etc.

The best access to the water jacket is first through the water pump

need the correct springs for a BJ7 to hold the top in place:

 Twas The Night Before a Healey Christmas


 Twas the night before Christmas, and I was certain
not a Healey was stirring, even with side curtains.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that new parts soon would be there.

The Healeys are nestled all snug in the shed,
While owner s dream of summer days ahead.
Some up on blocks, some in car covers,
some donating parts for the benefit of others.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
tore open the shutter, and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
was hidden by the dust from the objects below,
when, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but eight tiny Sprites and a 3000 this year!

With the driver enveloped in smoke so thick
I could barely tell it was old Saint Nick.
Chugging and popping, his coursers they came,
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name:

On Bugeyes, On Sprites, that I keep fixin,
or next year its back to Comet and Vixen!
Hmm, Healeys or Reindeer, he thought while stopping,
they both have merits, and they both have droppings.

As quick as a Healey s water will boil,
As fast the crankcase will drain of oil,
Up to the housetops the little Sprites flew,
the 3000 shedding parts, as they all will do.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the spire
the squealing and slipping of each little tire.
I knew as I heard their Yuletide jingles,
I was going to have some well oiled shingles!
He was dressed all in fur, from toe to ear,
a bad choice in a Healey, even this time of year!
Sweating profusely, he jumped from his ride
and down the chimney with gifts at his side.

His eyes how they twinkled, still teary from smoke.
His face regained color, as he thought with a joke,
the Healeys are fun but look at my clothes,
what once was red, is now black rose!

And where is my trademark   round little belly
that shook when I laughed   like a bowl full of jelly?
Always there proudly as I   made the rounds,
One night in a Healey and   I ve lost forty pounds!

Less chubby and plump, but still a jolly old elf
I laughed when I saw him; I drive a Healey myself.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but Healey parts he did toss
from Welch, Cape, Hemphill, and Moss.
All the stockings were filled and he turned to reflect,
I sure hope I got those part numbers correct!

Up the chimney he rose, ready to depart,
he said the Healey prayer: Lord please let them start .
I was amazed when they started on the first try,
and like the down of a thistle away they did fly.
But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight,

 Healey Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas to all my Healey friends, wherever they are, from a
snow-covered Holland. The second consecutive white Christmas over here,
has
not happened since 1901!
