Re: Door hinge pin removal

Hello Richard,

try and get to a dull red heat if you can. Have you tried just the hammer in case they are not as tight as you suspect?

Re: Door hinge pin removal

Hello Richard, I have never done this specific task but lots of similar ones. Soaking with a penetrating fluid such as plus gas for a few days may help. A good solid hammer and pin punch is required. Heat certainly helps a lot but will damge the paint, which may or may not be a problem for you? Cons...

Re: Auxiliary oil feed to rockers

Hello Cliff,

sorry, I missed what you were saying.
The only thing that can compensate for low pressure is remedial work to the engine. The system can only work within certain limitations.

Re: Auxiliary oil feed to rockers

Hello Cliff,

if you have an oil pressure gauge, you can see that, above low revolutions the oil pressure remains constant, this can only happen with a regulator given the engine speed and thus pump volume varies proportionately.

Re: Auxiliary oil feed to rockers

Hello Cliff, the restrictor limits the oil flow with this modification. What controls the oil pressure is the pressure relief valve (A misnomer really as it must be open at all times when running). When an engine wears the flow increases and the pressure drops. If an engine cannot maintain oil press...

Re: Distributor fitting

hello Tadge,

that is an unusual problem and it makes me wonder if there is a problem with the distributor drive shaft?
It's not entirely clear from your post if this problem is there on two different engines, which makes my suggestion rather unlikely. (both having a suspect drive shaft)

Re: Auxiliary oil feed to rockers

Hello Charles, Your reply is the general consensus but I would dispute it. Unless the engine is very badly worn, there is always an excess of oil capacity from the pump and the litle extra trickle from this modification should not affect the bottom end supply. Whether it is necessary is another ques...

Re: Oil pressure switch thread

Hello Phil,

I believe it is 1/8" BSP, as Chris Witor lists the oil gallery plug as that size?

Re: Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

Hello Llessur,

my Standard Triumph workshop manual does not show any wire locking on that item nor is it mentioned in the text. If that is how it was when you got the car then I believe a previous owner decided to do that?

Re: Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

Hello llessur,

I would sy that is normal as the two shafts are not in a straight line so the runbber must distort as the shaft is rotated.

You have anovel way of wire locking, why not drill the head?
