Re: Fuel consumption

I had a LHD 2000 - bog standard that I drove carefully so max ~ 70mph - cruising long distances at about 60mph as I was in no position to rebuild the engine and it gave 32-35mpg consistently (didn't really change after fitting overdrive, I just drove a bit faster.

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Early 2000 Mk1 had the temp sender in the thermostat housing, Later mk1 it was blanked off and the sender in the water pump housing. Mk2 had the different thermo casting with no place to drill and tap.

No idea when they stopped the earliest type

Re: Radiator cap mod

Maybe you need a filler plug like a stag on the thermostat (weld a boss / thread on or use Ford Fiesta thermostat cover? )and a Stag remote overflow bottle?

Re: Spin-on oil filters in Oz

Ryco Z63 or Z37 - perfectly adequate - I think 37 is a bit bigger

Re: Diff info

Alan, I always thought those big tyres on 15 inch rims plus 3.45 diff was a bit optimistic for a manual stag - they love to REV - triumph weren't daft fitttinga 3.7 to the manual - maybe the auto could have coped with a 3.45 although it really needed a 4 speed auto!
