Good to see updates again Brad and great to hear the end of the bodywork is in touching distance.

It must be a great incentive having that monster engine sat there waiting for it's place to live.

Fan Belt

Hi, I'm in need of a new fan belt.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a make and part number that is the correct size.

I assume that no-one makes one specifically for the tiger anymore.

Thanks.

It's a standard 260 layout with generator btw.

Your car, your rules.

Healey blue is a lovely colour in all it's shades.

You can't get away with that Stuart. You have to show us your big Healey now. :D

What colour was it originally Brad?

Seem to going I ever inreasing circles, need to touch that bit up, oh more panel work, touch that weld up,metal too thin.... It's why they invented beer. :D It can seem that way sometimes.

Never mind this pair of lightweights, Lets get down to business.

How about a straight swap for a pair of equally interesting MK1 headlight rings AND 2 of the highly desirable clockwise helixical spiral fitting kits.

Do you have a price in mind Jerry?

Do you want a new one or a used one to match the other side. I'm probably wrong but I think the only people who sell new ones are the C.A.T. parts depot but you have to be a member of CAT to buy one. They are $30. We do have a member in our midst though. Edited to add. Sunbeam Spares have them liste...
