The Jule Frame

The Jule Frame comes with a 5 year guarantee. In 1986, we started to develop a replacement frame for the Austin Healey after examining a number of frames and finding repeated failures. The frames had cracked engine mounts, front cross members that were split or crushed, front shock mount cracked, compression buckles in the main rails in engine mount areas, X members side walls becoming radius shaped from torsional loading, main frame rails dented and split, lower A arms brackets twisted, main chassis rails S shaped, broken welds on rear bulkhead to chassis, frame buckled under rear axle, cracked rear shock mounts. We found this happened in cars untouched with only 25,000 to 33,000 miles. These major failures happened within 3 years of use. We read articles where Healey owners in the 1950s and 1960s complained of shuttle shake, doors opening on hard cornering and car spinning out in corners. We concluded replicating the original design exactly would not be beneficial. We chose slightly different path. After all these years and hundreds of replacements and many miles, we have not yet replicated any of the structural failures that haunted the Austin Healeys of the past.
