Re: Injector fuel line supplier.

Hello Dave,

thanks for that, I did look on E-Bay earlier but perhaps I chose the wrong description as nothing showed up.

Injector fuel line supplier.

Hello all, does any one know of a supplier of the nylon injector fuel line. The only source i have seen so far are Revington TR but they are asking sillyl money for it (+£8 a metre) and it seems they are promoting their braided kits, which I do not like. I can find industrial suppliers but I don't k...

Re: 74 Triumph 2000 mk2 dangerously slow and sluggish.

Hello Bdraw97,

another little, but important point to check is the distributor mechanical advance mechanism (Not the vacuum advance) in case it's seized due to standing. This will have a severe effect on performance if it has stuck.

Re: Petrol Leak - Siphoning

Hello John, the floats on a HS6 and HS4 are non adjustable, although the level can be lowered, to some extent, using extra washers under the jet. It should be impossible for fuel to syphon back to the tank, as there are two one way valves in the fuel pump, one suction, one discharge. If one of those...

Re: Wheel bearing spinning on stub axle

Hello Llessur, Yes, Loctite would probably do the job, but there si another alternative which is to make or haver made a spacer that goes between the two races and the spindle nut being done up tightly. This clamps the two inner races together. Shims will be needed to make the end float adjustment e...

Re: Old misfire - again

Hello Cliff, mine's a 25D6, but from memory the 45 also should have a screw. Is the steel collar just a washer? If you remove the base plate you should then be able to lift the rotor off and see better how the end of the spindle looks. Could it be that the screw has been sheared off insitu? Whether ...

Re: Rear screen seal replacement

Hello SAHTuning, I used my hand, it doesn't take a lot to pop it out unless the rubber has gone very hard? Cutting is another option if it's difficult to move. You can reach round to keep pressure on teh screen while pulling teh cord. Incidenatally I use single flexible electrical cable rather than ...

Re: J Type wiring

Hello Peter,

very often, due to gearlever movement, one one of the switch wires breaks where it exits the gearlever. That's the first place I'd look.

Re: Rear screen seal replacement

Hello SAHTuning,

just push the screen gently from one corner. I don't use any mastic when replacing it and also find it quite easy to replace it without any assistance, being fairly flat it is not difficult to fit.

Re: Just another Thrust Washer

Hello Mike, I would have to disagree with your suggestion, on two points, it is the steel backing that need to be made thinner and that it is next to impossible to lap a piece such as a thrust washer and keep it parallel all over. While I do like to do as much as I can myself, I would not try and do...
