As of now I have not resolved the problem. Primarily for now the car is in
storage because I am on a two year adventure living in a RV and traveling.
When this is over I will return to this problem - - hopefully with a good game
plan with the help of this list.
1960 Austin Healey Sprite (Mk IV in disguise) - in storage
1966 Austin Healey Sprite Mk III (Trevor) - still in boxes - in storage
