Good point. Everyone that I know who has Putzke's Fahrpass tube shock
conversion loves it.

It all depends what YOU want out of the exercise.
Interesting that no-one has mentioned handling and ride comfort.
I would do the usual mods to the engine, with the DW cam or similar (I used
a version of the race version of the BJ8 cam which went really well because
it was tailored to my requirements). High compression pistons work well with
a modern-fuel-compatible head and modern set up. Personally I used Hepolites
Lighten as much as poss and make sure it is all balanced and that whatever
your heating/cooling needs are, are taken care of and make sure that you
avoid excessive heat to the fuel lines. Carbs can be whatever you want.
Personally I like SUs but not everyone does.
I mention ride because when you have done all that you do to your engine and
transmission, it has to be usable when you drive it. I drove a couple of
Healeys recently both of which had more power than they could reasonably
handle over the sort of roads we were on. Look at your suspension carefully
and make sure that you get the level of firmness that YOU want. I used poly
bushes, anti-roll bars and tinkered with bits to get a ride that was good
enough to impress the late Alan Cameron storming up Prescott (which he ran
at the time).
