Re: Rotisserie/Rollover Jig

I have recently bought a jig for my Mk2. The jig is now assembled but the shell isn't on it - yet! Mine has the height at each end adjustable so your figures Alec will be very useful! Mine came as a 'kit' that needed some welding and includes castors so it can be pushed about - in theory anyway. Fir...

Re: 3.45 diff wanted

Just to add to johnnydog's excellent reply, if you are going to remove the diff C/W front nosepiece, disconnect the hand brake cable at one rear wheel. If you don't the whole lot hangs on the cable and pulls on both rear brakes!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: Distributor advice? Powerspark or NOS.

Alec is right, the one I have on the PI does use the points and the electronic box has a 3-way switch on it (Electronic - Off - Standard), so it is easy to switch between the standard and electronic systems. My choice would be for a non-points type, but I have it and it works, so... The Stag has a L...

Y'know, that's how I remember it too. So either we're right - or both of us are wrong (as well as the parts book)!

Cheers,

Re: Distributor advice? Powerspark or NOS.

All the distributor specs are also in the original Triumph manual. In addition to the vacuum advance/retard amount being on the 'trumpet', the amount of mechanical advance is stamped onto the advance arm which can be found under the points mounting plate. I have a feeling that the figure is distribu...

Re: Rear Road Spring

That hole doesn't (or shouldn't!) go right into the box section, just into the spring mount. As the hole is facing down, any water getting in there should drain out anyway. Spraying some anti-rust treatment and/or protection in there is certainly a good idea. Some years ago there was a suggestion of...

Re: Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

My 1967 Mk1 had the rubber coupling. I always thought they were standard on the Mk1.

It is quite while since I had a Mk1 though..

Re: Wanted: Drivers (RHD) sill tread plate

I have 185/80-14 on both the PI and Stag and I'm very pleased with them. Hankook I think? (It's too dark and cold to go and see). Yes, I've found the electronic invoice - Hankook OPTIMO K715 185/80 R14 91T. They are quiet and road holding seems fine but these days I don't drive quite like I used to!...

Re: Steering column bulk head rubber gromit

I hope you managed this OK. Beware that there is a scroll pin holding the rake adjust clamp bolt in place. It's hard to see and thus often forgotten. And yes, I have in the past missed it too!

Cheers,
Mike.
