Description

This book helps you identify all the things you need to be aware of to avoid trouble systematically describing all the main components of the Midget/Sprite and detailing what can go wrong with each. Being able to identify simple warning signs can keep you ahead of a big repair bill – and possibly save you from being stranded at the road side.

The author

Trained as a tool maker in the aerospace industry, Terry Horler has a keen interest in all things of an engineering nature. His first Austin-Healey Sprite, a 1959 Mk1, was bought from a work colleague in 1969. After considerable repair work, it was sold just nine months later – an action that was soon regretted. The next Sprite came along in 1976, followed by several other Sprites and Midgets. Terry still owns and drives a 1960 Sprite purchased in 1979, and a 1968 Sprite MkIV purchased in 1984. This interest in the marque led Terry, along with another work colleague, to form the Midget and Sprite Club in 1983 when these cars were at their lowest ebb. Since then, Terry has been a technical consultant for the club, writing many articles for the club magazine, forming the Sprite and Midget register, and helping owners with a wide variety of problems. Terry’s first book, Original Sprite and Midget, was published in 1994, and is regarded as the definitive work on these cars. Terry is now the club documentation officer, dealing with valuations, DVLA re-registration applications, and general technical advice.
