Re: Fan thermo switch

Without going and measuring the top and bottom hoses physically, I know that the stainless jubilee type clips I have recently fitted have 40 stamped on them, and they also state 30 - 40mm size; presumably suitable for hoses between those sizes externally. They fitted snugly, with about 5mm excess wh...

Re: Brake Pedal very hard

If a UK spec car, it will undoubtedly have a single line braking system on it. Mk2 tandem systems usually have a twin pipe outlet on the brake master cylinder which will have a plastic reservoir, with a metal reservoir on the single line system, which easily identifies them. I agree that it sounds l...

Re: Forum Updated 18th August

I have just submitted a post, and it took quite a long while relatively for it to appear on the topic.
This is probably why some members have submitted duplicate posts - because their post doesn't appear as quickly as it did previously, they are clicking the submit button a second time.

Re: Fuel consumption

A correctly set up PI can be more economical than one running on carburettors. However, unless you are proficient in setting up a PI, invariably they can be more thirsty. It possibly also doesn't help as the nature of the beast (a PI) probably encourages you drive more spiritedly! I used to get top ...

Re: Auto box tailshaft movement

Yes, this is perfectly normal. Having recently replaced my the rear seal on my auto box in my PI, it was exactly the same as you describe.

Re: Blue cloth interior

In 1973 and 1974 MY (model year), the interior trim options for French Blue 2000 / 2.5 PI models were either black or grey (vinyl or cloth), but it was changed to black only in 1975 for some reason. New model spec etc were usually introduced around October for the following year so there will be som...

Re: Hello from the USA, 2500S Estate owner

Looks a very presentable example! As you say estates are getting quite rare here in the UK, so to see one in the USA now must be exceptionally rare sight! There are a few white saloons knocking around here, but estates, no. White estates seem to be few and far between. If you haven't already conside...

Re: Blue cloth interior

In 1975, the only exterior body colours that had a blue interior trim were Triumph White, Ice Blue or Delft Blue. French blue only had the option of a black interior. 2000's and 2500PI's both had the same colour options, whether that be vinyl or cloth.
