Re: Solex spares

I believe that the same 26AHD carburettor was used in the Peugeot 190 S, I have a photo of it, a search on t’interweb might bring more info, but France may be a better starting point for your search, (France eBay).

Re: Healey coming up for auction

Silicon bronze welding is the preferred way to build these type of frames, the process relies on adhesion not fusion, the secret is cleanliness and fluxing the area to be welded, it is a oxy- acetylene process and the big advantage is that, if it is done properly, you get a fillet on the inside of t...
