Re: Torque Settings Part 2

Hi again Joe, it's unusual to have a warped inlet manifold I would say unless it was subjected to some sort of extreme pressure during the work you mention. In any case if you still suspect a leak between the head and manifold caused by warping I suppose you will be removing it to check properly, wh...

Re: 'Orrible modern fuel

Hello John, I'm pleased that you found my old article interesting, since then I have made small modifications to tidy up the appearance of the fuel system and hopefully further reduce temperatures. I have replaced the tin over the fuel pump with a stainless steel canister, (actually a storage jar/co...

Re: Bad oil leak

I had a bad oil leak from the large core plug at the back of the block following a rebuild, turned out that some of the "Triumph 2000 full engine set core plugs" as it said on the packet were not a particularly good fit, only apparent when the engine was re-installed and running-gearbox came out aga...

Re: Gearbox Mount

Hi Sam, so ok then it's not to original spec but it should locate the gearbox for now until finances permit a better solution. I did buy a new mounting from Rimmers a few years ago and I was most unimpressed with the quality, overall it was thinner metal and the bolt holes for cross member were too ...

A couple of very smart cars being driven in lovely w...

Re: Longest Triumph 2000 ownership?

That's fantastic Pete, you must be very attached to your lovely car, it looks really smart. Obviously we cannot think of anything better to replace them with.

Re: Longest Triumph 2000 ownership?

37 years for me on my mk2 but I would imagine there are longer ownerships than that. Some of our members who clocked up long term 40 plus years ownership from new have now sadly passed away but it says a lot about these cars when we still don't part with them for so long. I still get a lot of pleasu...

Re: MK1 driveshaft

Hi, replacing the uj's is straightforward with basic tools, the Haynes manual covers the repair. You need to remove the outer shaft and press out the uj cups in a vice and if you can- make sure the replacement uj's have a grease nipple fitting. When the shaft is out it's much easier to feel for any ...

Re: Wheels & tyres

I recently fitted a set of Uniroyal rallye 380 to my 2000, no complaints about them, they are the proper load index for our cars unlike the van tyres, I have not tried them in snow as yet so cannot comment on that but good in other conditions- and they came from oponeo, took about ten days to arrive...
