[Healeys] "SS" aka--scuttle shake

I have been told for many years that the rear axle housing, brake assemblies etc on these cars are so heavy that any imbalance will not be noticed.  Not so.  I balanced mine and I could feel the difference.  Also balanced a few other drums.  I strongly recommend balancing drums!!!  You will be surprised at how much out of balance some of them are.

Subject: Re: [Healeys] BJ8---clutch and "SS" aka--scuttle shake  Agreed, I had the tires shaved and the rear brake drums balanced - now no scuttle shake.

  Second------for the years I have had this car, I have hated the dreaded scuttle shake.  I have balanced all wheels--even added the scuttle shake "mod"  (cross beams on the inner body, behind the engine) and had the rear drums balanced locally.  All to no avail-----between 55 and 65 there is comes again!!  The drive was wonderful all the while as long as I drove slower or faster than these speeds.  What to do------what to do???  Any thoughts would be appreciated.Tom
