Re: Clutch fork

Hello Lessur,

that looks fine. I assume the taper in my shaft is a bit on the large size, as mine would screw all the way into the fork and end up with the head tight against the fork. To ensure that the pin was tight in the cross shaft I relieved the head slightly and that worked.

sintered bronze bushes are fitted after soaking but I don't think this bush is sintered.

Re: Clutch fork

Hello Llesur, it should be a snug but not overly tight fit. All the ones I have done they have slid easily.

Re: Heater Valve

Hello Jeff, The Jaguar MK 2 does use a valve that is very similar to the Triumph Mk 1. However I note the seller is Ashley Hinton who trades in heaters and accessories amongst other things so I suggest that he probably is correct in saying it fits the Triumh. http://www.mg-cars.org.uk/ah/index.htm ....

Re: 1968 Mk1 interior mirror.

Hello Johnny,

mine has one crack which is why I wouldprefer to replace it.
I would be happy with your first one, if you want to let it go?

Bank transfer or Paypal, is probably easiest if you wish?

Many thanks,

Re: J Type Overdrive.

Hello Tony,

they should be flat but I don't think that slight bend will affect the operation of the overdrive.

Re: Rocker shaft

Hello GSouthee, set the tappets to the clearance specified by the cam supplier. After market cams often have different clearances than Triumph specified so that is quite normal. It is better to have slightly loose clearances than tight as this ensures that the valves seat on the head and are less li...
