Healey grill

Update to this vehicle, the clutch replacement went well. Front brake rebuild, clean gas tank, and all is working fine. Daily driver in nice weather.

Easy Out

Pulling the engine was the only option left, it was obvious the disengage lever was at the extreme limit of travel. Everything went well. After disassemble, you could see the bent lever. The push rod had been lengthened to achieve this damage.

I've had bugeye parts lying around for 40 years, since 1973 when I dragged a '59 body home from a cow pasture. I worked on it a little in the '90's, then again 5 years ago.
