Paul,
That is a real testament to your knowledge and thoroughness. A real piece of history brought back to life.

Cheers

Using the principle that a photo a day keeps David Anderson away, here goes.

IMG_81054.jpg


The front wheel is double sided so needs a balancing lever to equalise the pull on each side. The original levers used by Healey were Cuppini or some such name which I was unable to find but the ones I did find were very similar. Unfortunately, they didn't have the balancing mechanism. Having searched for a mechanism for a long time, I eventually found one on an MV at last year's Stafford Show. So I asked if they had them available through the MV Club. The answer was that I could join their Club (somewhere around £50 if I remember correctly) and would then have access to the spares but they had no idea whether the balancing mechanism would be available or what it might cost. So I took the simple route and made one myself, working from photos of the one on my previous Healey. Naturally, it took some time to make but it works well enough.
