I started this project in 2004 when I released the Parts List on CD-ROM for the Austin-Healey 3000 (BJ7/BJ8), and continued in 2005 with the release of the Parts List CD for the Austin-Healey 3000 (BN7/BT7), but I abandoned the project in 2009 before completing the Parts List for the Austin-Healey 100 Six (BN4/BN6). I never began work on the Parts list for the Austin-Healey 100 (BN1/BN2).
The BMC publications listed below represent hundreds of hours of my time scanning, transcribing, proofreading and coding. I felt a proprietary sense of ownership over my work, but I have come to realize that it truly belongs to the Austin-Healey community. Now, I am making the parts lists available to all for free in the hope that it helps the Austin-Healey community.

BMC Parts Lists for the Austin-Healey
Please recognize that these Parts Lists were created over 15 years ago when browsers and coding languages were very different than they are now. Everything seems to work as it should, but the Help refers to the browsers of the day (Netscape's Navigator, Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Apple's Safari). They have a turn-of-the century feel to them, which I guess adds the classic nature of our cars.
Note: BMC Carburettor Service Sheets. Each of the three Parts Lists contain one or more BMC Service Sheets on how to tune, maintain and repair the carburettors for that particular model. They are some of the most helpful publications I have found because much of the information is not included in the workshop manual (especially the tuning procedure for the BJ8's HD carburettors). The Service sheets are found in the "Reference" sections of each Parts List.

- Online Parts List: BN4/BN6 (AKD 1423, AKD 855)
- WARNING: These two publications are unfinished. They contain errors and omissions, both in the information displayed as well as the page formatting. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
- BN4 Parts List (AKD 1423) From memory, I know that this one is very rough; you can probably get some useful information from it, such as the illustrations and some parts numbers, but I can't guarantee the accuracy of any of the information displayed.
- BN6 Parts List (AKD 855) However, this one should be very complete; I can't remember if I did a final proof read on it, so it may still contain errors.
- I never finished these parts lists, though I was very close. It's unlikely they will ever be finished; over the years I have attempted to finish them a few times but each time I run into the same technical difficulties that prevented completion on the previous attempts.
- NOTE: These two publications are presented on one web page as if they were one publication. When you arrive at this page, the Parts List for the BN4 (AKD 1423) is shown.

A Note about the Parts List .zip files
I have had reports of the Parts Lists not working from a hard drive. It seems some of the modern browsers refuse to load the files for security reasons; browsers from 15 years ago weren't quite as locked-down as they are today. There's nothing dangerous about the files, just coding anomalies that the browser doesn't like. If that happens to you, send me a report and I will see what I can do to fix it.
