Re: Still after a few MK1 parts....

Hello SAHtuning,

I was looking for a MK1 front bumperblade, for rechroming, but on Chris Witor's website he has a brand new, still wrapped (partially) for sale. About £375 from memory?

Re: Anti roll bar

Hello Baller,

although my car is modified as far as the anti roll bar is concerened, i.e. I made the bar mounting brackets my bar is above the track rods and the bar is shaped with a bend to keep them clear of the track rods on full depression.

Re: Anti roll bar

Hello Baller,

as it's a Mk 1 it must be a modification and as such it doesn't sound as though it was done well? (Wasn't an anti troll bar first fitted by Triumph to the S to compensate for softer springs?)

Re: Differential Wanted

Hello Chris,

OK, that's fine.

Basically for road use, I've been meaning to fit one for years and this restoration session I decided to buy and fit one. Not yet on the road to see the effects.

Re: 2500 TC has the wrong head ?

Hello Tadge44,

Yes to the flywheel and manifolds.
The distributor is another matter, P.I. and carburettor engines have different curves and as putting carburettors on a P.I. engine makes it non standard so some trial and error may be necessary to get the best from the engine.

Re: Differential Wanted

Hello Chris, I note that you have had little response to your request, at least visible on the forum?

Re: Steering adjustment this weekend

Hello Thjorsten,

what wheels have you fitted, I have experienced after market wheels with too small a counterbore to fit the hub correctly, which can affect true running of the wheel?

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.
