Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

Hello Dave/Johnny,

thanks for the info.

Yes the flange is wrong but that's not insurmountable. It's had a hard life for a new item and I suppose the price reflects the scarcity?

Re: prop

Re: prop

Hello T2000,

from the Triumph parts book it shows the sliding end at the gearbox. I suspect that there is little real difference which way round it goes?

Re: MK1 getting hot and holding back.

Hello SAH,

do refit the thermostat as it regulates the water flow, without it there is a less distributed flow around then engine.

Reset the tappets and try a bit more ignition advance to see if the performance improves.
