Got the E-type running today

11 posts in this topic

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...

No go on the Healey today - a defective part is holding up progress until Monday.

Forgot to take my camera too, sorry Stang.

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!

Yeah, it's a known problem.

BTW: this car is a restored street car, not one of the race cars.

I'll get you some pics soon.

I'm giving you fair warning: When you see the pics you will suffer extreme Healey-lust.

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...
