Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

Thats good to hear Ross - I was thinking that at some stage I might end up changing the box!! I have quite a selection of good used autoboxes from a variety of cars I have scrapped over the years, but I didnt make note of the id plates. I have a 1969 Mk2 auto PI that I am debating whether to fully b...

Auto gearbox identification plates

Having just checked my auto gearbox identification plate on my 73 125bhp 2.5 PI following a query from Tinsmith_Skippy (Ross Taylor), I was surprised to see that it appeared to have a 'lime' green coloured id plate. I couldn't make out the prefix numbers/ letter due to the limited access and dirt up...

Re: Gearbox rear oil seal

They are commonly available at most places, but CW is generally considered on here as one of the better suppliers. There are two types, the later rubber type with the tensioning spring, or the earlier type in which the seal is held in a metal surround. I used the later rubber type on my PI, as it wa...

Re: Anti-siphon valve?

If you have good access under the car or it is on a ramp, then an alternative would be to disconnect the union on the underside of the tank above the diff. It is offset, so that access is reasonably good. The hole for the fuel to drain out of is then bigger than from any fuel lines, so the old fuel ...

Re: Prices

In the condition you say, sounds a bit top heavy, but seeing some of the prices they get on Ebay, anything is possible! Good for the values of them, unless you are in the market to buy of course!

Re: Gearbox rear oil seal

I've just replaced the rear seal on the auto box on my PI - just use a long thin screwdriver to lever it out. Make sure that tip of the blade is in the middle of the seal by the spring to ensure that you don't score the alloy whilst levering it out. It pops out quite easily once its moving. Use an a...

Re: mk1 front wing sections remanufacture

The 5th post on page two of this topic has the details of Lloyd Reed who has instigated the manufacyure of these panels. He is the person to get in touch with, using those details or by a pm. As the forum is relatively quiet these days due to the Facebook fan page, I would suggest using the details ...

Re: Rimmers headlight switch

I think you will find that the block connector plugs are different on the later facelift cars, which were a hard white plastic with a triangular shape end, with pins. The earlier block connector plugs are a pliable rubber with bullet type connectors. The two aren't interchangeable, and the later car...

Re: 2500 S Project

I recollect now you posting you had got the white S, so hopefully your future renovations will be an interesting read! I remember the days here in the UK when you could buy scrap cars from the breakers yard - if you were lucky and there at the right time, a Triumph was driven in and a short time lat...
