[Healeys] Speaking of generators

Most likely a dealer swap of a defective generator before the car was sold 
or some such similar occurrence.

Reminds me of a discussion I've had more than once about restoration. One 
must decide what point in the car's life is to be represented to do an 
accurate restoration. There are cars out there with incredible histories, 
that were simply standard production cars when they left the factory, and 
became known for much more later in their life.
