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 ...

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...

Re: Bottom radiator hose - PAS cars

Well it certainly looks feasible from the diagrams in the parts list although I have to say that I have never tried it myself, my car is power steering anyway and I always had the proper hose to hand, get the knife/saw out and give it a go if the non pas hose is of no use to you.

Re: replacement radiator

It is a little lower than original, any higher and the cap fouls the front panel flange, but I'll see how I go on when topping up, all my pipe work came from auto silicone hoses, they do a good range of stuff.
