Nice to see a Healey at a local show today. It had a 2 litre Ford engine fitted which fit in the engine bay perfectly.

A yellow Interceptor was also present.

The electric kind, off a Corsa? Or hydraulic?
16 valves but 4 extra pistons.

I have an adjustable Corsa one for my Healey. I have one fitted in my old Jeep and it works a treat. Saves meddling with the rack. Easy to find on Ebay in my experience.
