No, no, no!!!!
All Big Healeys and all MG's and all Sprites, Midgets, Triumphs. etc. all 
used the same splines.
What did change for the Healeys and MG's at least was the thread pitch of 
the knockoff cap about the same time in the mid '60's. They went 
from the fine thread (12TPI) to coarse thread (8 TPI) at about the same time 
in the mid '60's.
