The function of that port is news to me. I have a '60 BN7 in the range that had the starting carb. The ports in the intake manifold were present when I purchased the car, but each had a short piece of rubber hose blocked by a small bolt. They had no function, and the car was fitted with two HD6 carbs and was absent the starting carb. My since sold Jag MK 2 had a starting carb, and it gave me no problems. I have since removed the intake manifold bits on the Healey those and pretty nicely covered the ports. But now I know that my car likely has a replacement head. It does not have the triangular port discussed here.

I’m pretty sure that’s the sender for the thermo-choke carb setup.

While viewing the shot if the engine, I see something that I can’t identify. Mounted to the head by 3 screws is a triangle shaped component with something protruding up from the middle. It is right next to the thermostat housing. What is that?
