Well, here is one solution:

% use a default setting in case you want to change the spacing in the
    {\parindent \z@ \raggedright
      \Huge \bfseries  #1\par\nobreak
      \vskip 40\p@

That seems to work. I am using the memoir class. I assume that if I put
this at the beginning, I can stil se memoir commands to customize my
chapter headings. I assume that I can find teh default settings for
sections and subsections by looking at memoir.cls.
