Camino LS6    866

It had a bad O ring in one carb (had to remove the carb to fix it - bit of a PITA). Runs great now, and no more puddles of fuel under it.

BTW Stang, it is an earlier car than I remembered ('69 Series II).

On to the Healy 3000 now...

Thats Okay.

Although I'm having trouble believing any 50 year old British Sports Car would have a defective part...much less a defective electrical part.

Good thing vintage racing is usually not done at night...

:lol:

Yeah, imagine that!

Funny thing is, the problem part is an electrical part.

But get this, it isn't a Lucas original - it's an aftermarket knock-off. Defective right out of the box.

It's the pressure switch that actuates the brake lights.

As a former SCCA flagger...I know how quickly cars get black flagged for that.

Interestingly, I have black flagged Healy's during vintage races for just that problem!

Amazing how the Chinese take a suboptimal defective design and make it even worse than its original crappy 50 year old self....

And I'm already in Healy lust...
