Gipsy engine parts

The list below shows the engine parts that I have found to be interchangeable with the Gipsy 2.2L Petrol engine and the Healey 100-4 2.6 petrol engine.

Austin Gipsy engine parts

As you may already know, the Austin Gipsy 2.2 petrol engine is (mostly) the same as the Austin Healey 100-4 engine, and with the Austin Healey being so popular this makes getting parts for your Gipsy much easier! Below I will list the engine parts and their respective original BMC part number. These are parts that I have used myself and found them to work
