Austin-Healey 100,100S,100-Six - scuttle shake
|I am helping a friend with the ground-up restoration of a 100-6. Now that the chassis is fully accesible, we would like to use the opportunity to reinforce the chassis. All steelwork is brought into a sound and straight condition and we already welded in some small additional braces between the outriggers and the main beams for improved strength. I have read somewhere that a reinforcement of the firewall/tunnel area is further improvement for serious use. Does anyone out there know where to find the details, dimensions etc. of this. Your help is greatly appreciated!|
I have been told by one of the U.S.'s leading experts in Austin-Healey restoration and racing that almost all of the scuttle shake common to Big Healeys can be eliminated by welding the foot well panels to the main frame with a continuous bead. Sounds like a simple solution that does not require additional bracing. If you wish to investigate further, e-mail me off line and I will give you his contact information.
Best of luck,

This letter may come to you as a suprise based on the fact that I
have not had any previous contact with you.Briefly, I
am Amato Daniel, son and heir to the late Dr Daniel,
former director of Sierre Leone Gold and Diamond Corporation who
was murdered by assailants believed to be working for his political
enemies. Shortly before this unfortunate incident, my father had
informed me about an important business deal he
had executed with some of his colleagues in the office. He
told me that he had diverted some money totaling
Nine million US dollars (US$9M) which they had
realized from the sale of gold and diamonds in the
black market. He showed me some lodgement documents
with which he had deposited the money encased i
n a trunck box with a security /safe deposit company here in
Abidjan, Cote d Ivoire. He infromed me in confidence that the
seciurity company is not aware of the exact contents of the box ;
rather, he had told them that it contained Family Valuable that
he had assembled for his overseas partner who would soon
be coming to claim them for exportation. As a result
of this explanation, the box was accepted for safe-keeping
by the security company without inspection.
When the political situation in Freetown, Sierre Leone worsened, I
escaped into Abidjan, Cote d Ivoire and had since contacted the
security company, identified myself properly and informed them
about the sad fate my father had suffered. I presented the l
odgement documents and they confirmed that they have
the trunk box in their vault. So I informed them that
I intend initiating contacts with my fathers overseas
partner who owns the consignment so that he can come
and take delivery of it.
My decision to retrive this box, transfer the money and
start a new life forms the basis of this enquiry from you.1)
Could you advise me on a good business proposition into
which we can invest this money so that it would yield
good dividends ? 2) Could you assist me obtain resident
papers in your country so that I can continue my education
there from where I stopped. If you can assist me on these 2
points above, I shall give you 30% of the total money while
setting aside 5% for all incidental expenses that may arise
in the course of actualising the transaction (such expenses as
phone calls fax messages air tickets etc.)
I need not inform you that this matter is strictly confidential.
I want you to treat it as such.
