[Healeys] Distributor and Tach Drive Housing

I'm in the middle of my build too.

Almost all of the gaskets needed are included in the set called a "Conversion
Gasket Set". It's not listed, but it's there. I don't think any of the smaller
gaskets in the set are available separately--IIRC, only the sump and cam cover
gaskets are.

While the drawings made for the car are fun to look at, the style decisions
like having the engine drawings done with the engine facing right to left
should not have overridden the better choice to show the engine from the angle
that would show the most details (cam covers, distributor drive, oil filter,
etc) are all viewable on the opposite side of the block. That could have made
it practical to show that gasket on the block drawing instead of the internals
drawing that skips it as well. As a technical illustrator, that has always
bugged me.

gasket shown in either the Service Parts book or in the Moss catalog. What am
I missing?
