The wife and I just bled the brakes on 17798 using the Speed Bleeders I installed last week. They needed to be bled after putting the three new brake hoses on. I am a believer! I have used the Vacula and other pressure vacuum systems, but the Speed Bleeder is the best IMHO.

Hi John,

How did you know that I've been working on it?  Actually just purchased a few hardware items - one to replace the plastic clips in attached photo with metal screw-in design.  Should be good-to-go in a few weeks.

Still have the Clutch Lever Boot available, as well as a single Damper Kit - then I have to try finding more raw dampers.........

Just started the design and market potential of a couple of items.  Have to determine what the market quantity will be as tooling costs are very high..............:
  • The small rubber gaiter that closes the end of the Clutch Cable (under the car).  Gaiter, Clutch Cable # 91391. Tooling costs are quite high.
  • Rubbber boot, Grommet, Gearshift Lever # 91692,  that fits under the leather gaiter on the Gear Shift lever.  This keeps the heat out of that area, as the leather is ineffective for that purpose.
  • Investigated producing the rubber base under the front and rear sidelights, but the market was not enough to make it feasible.
Pete

Hey Pete,

Ive been thinking of marketing your Pete's Kits through the "Billy Mays" pitch marketing system.

Something like...... " Its'  ______ for The famous "Pete's Kits" Do you Jensen Healey Owners cringe at the thought of your key being unable to unlock the trunk when you need it most. Imagine the anger, embarrassment, and frustration of being locked out of your trunk. Your wife's umentionables, kids christmas presents or your trusty tool box locked inside  the trunk with no way to open easily without spending 100's if not 1000's of dollars at a locksmith who wont have a clue what to do. RELAX..... With a Pete's Kit's instant unlock Kit you Just...... PULL once   and "CLICK" It's Done!.... "

A Pete's Kit always Fits... of course a money back guarantee if you ever get locked out of your trunk and the thing just doesnt work.

ONLY  $29.99 while supplies last>>>> But wait, order in the next thirty minutes, cause we can't do this all day and we'll throw in a second Pete's Kit instant Trunk unlock kit for FREE. ( just pay minor shipping and handling fee of 29.99)

I heard the Shamwow guy is available to help

 - John

Hi Pete,

91692 is described as a "'73 shift boot". Was this part used under part# 99852?

I can see how it would help the heat issue. I have been using a jerry-rigged plastic bag with fiberglass packing under the shiftlever boot. It works for a while until the fiberglass gets matted down.

Put me on the list.

Kurt

I found that Harley Davidson has a clutch cable gaiter (dust cover) that fits very well at a very reasonable price.  It looks almost identical to the original.

I found a cheap generic rubber shift boot that fits the JH with a little trimming: http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Gasket-9648-Shifter-Boots/dp/B000BW8W66/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1286380501&sr=1-3

Kurt: 
  • Can't fine 99852 in the parts manual.  Also, rubber gaiter not shown for post 13350 chassis, but my Gaiter fits nicely.  See attachment.
  • My parts Manual calls 91692 a "Grommet, Gearshift Lever - pg G-13.
  • I've referred to 91692 because the parts list for the later cars does not show a rubber gaiter.
Speedy: 
  • That Mr. Gasket part looks close but has a rectangular hole for the round Shift Lever.  Also, the hole is centered on that part and needs to be offset to match the Lever.  See attachment.

Hi Pete, 99852 is the leather(?) gearshift boot on the mk2 cars. It is shown on Delta's website.

I assume the early cars with the plastic tray got the rubber item.

Speed bleeders are the way to go. They are available at most auto parts stores. You can bleed the brakes by yourself in 30 min or less.

Kurt,

I was confused (nothing new there) about your reference to "99852 as the leather(?) gearshift boot on the mk2 cars. It is shown on Delta's website."

Turns out that for some reason the Parts Manual and Delta website have two different numbers for the same Gearshift leather part.  Delta=99852, Manual=97122.

OK, not confused any longer..........   well, l guess I am still confused - why are the PN's different????

Pete

Hi Pete,

I put the question mark in there to indicate that the Healeys probably got nauga hides instead of leather. My car came with an aftermarket boot so I don't know.

Do you have the part number and/or sizes? From SpeedBleeder.com I would guess SB3824 for the front and SB1428 for the rear since it is very common and fits the MGs (the only British car listed) of the same year.

Thanks in advance,

Speedy Mitch

I had that information at hand in May and can come up with it again, but please bear with me 'til tomorrow. I've got to sort through a bunch of memory circuits and bits of paper.  Each time I use them I am more impressed. I have them on my TR7 as well.

Thanks Pete. I used 2x SB3824L for the front and 1x SB3824 for the rear (only the passenger side rear brake caliper has a bleed screw). They are $7 each from SpeedBleeder.com.

Also confirmed these simple devices make bleeding the brakes much easier.
