Re: Fuel hose lubricant

You could also try a hot air gun on its lowest setting? Don't go mad with it though - I usually hold it at a distance so that the item I am warming can be still touched by hand which helps you gauge the heat on it. If you can sneak the wife's hairdryer out of the house, that might be a better bet!! ...

Re: Club Triumph RBRR 2018 at John o' Groats

Thanks for sharing those fantastic pictures Ian! Great cars and great pictures! It looked like the decent weather we had in the middle of the country this weekend didn't quite make it to John O'Groats! However, it's something I have always thought about doing, but never got round to it (as with most...

Re: Clutch lever arm - which hole

Irrespective of which model, I always have fitted the clevis pin to the middle hole. This gives a pedal with moderate pressure which I prefer - the front hole gives a heavier pedal, and some say gives more clutch cover clearance, whilst in the rearmost hole, there may not be sufficient clutch cleara...

Re: replacement radiator

Do you specifically want a new / recored one, or would a good known used one suffice? I have a reasonable number of used radiators for our Triumphs - all the various types for all models. Incidentally, did you manage to source an interior light door switch for a Mk1 - I can't remember now whether I ...

Re: Red vinyl on a mk2

Red was a relative common interior with Mk1 models in the UK, but was it an option only on early Mk2 models. It was Matador Red, and was an option with white, green (?possibly?) and grey cars I recollect. I have a 1970 sales brochure which shows a red interior in a white saloon. It was available in ...

Re: Fuel pump cleaning (& tank removal)

Just as Charles says, although sometimes it is also easier to remove the upright part of the rear seat to gain better access to the slotted screw head of the wire clamps for the rubber fuel filler hose - it all depends which side the slotted screw head is visible from. I'm sure you know how to remov...

Re: Convert TC to S spec

I dont know what you are prepared to pay for a good manual S, but this seems to be worth a look, a South African spec 2500S. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1977-TRIUMPH-2500S-MANUAL-WITH-OVERDRIVE-Genuine-50000-miles-Service-history/292729912741?hash=item44280ffda5:g:VU8AAOSwuxhbnj6X In the long run a ...
