Thank you Craig

I do really enjoy the car and so do complete strangers whenever I pull up on the side of the road.

It is a beautiful car which I enjoy immensely

Thank you Mike

I was really just kidding. I love the car dearly. Just like my kids though, the experience can be occasionally very trying!

Another suggestion gents.....................

Quite a few Healey owners both 100/4 and 6 cylinder car owners in Aussie "lag" (aka the old steam train/ferry days) the exhaust system from the manifold down under the car to the muffler. They do this to stop the passenger (in RHD vehicles) from "frying" on a 35 + degree day. One of the local Healey owners in the "North of The South Island" of N.Z. who is on the back end of a restoration has also adopted this strategy. I understand the old asbestos lagging is "illegal" but I also understand there is a suitable substitute.

This of course has the effect of keeping the exhaust heat contained and as a consequence I suggest would reduce the heat in the engine bay.........we have not done this with our 100/4 for the reasons I have already explained.

Cheers
Geoff
