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.

Re: 2000 Estate - 4.1 Diff

A friend of mine has a 1972 2000 manual with overdrive. Due to an issue with the original diff, he replaced it with a 3.45 from a 2.5. He found that motorway cruising was more relaxed due to the higher overall gearing, but he found that it struggled with motorway inclines without changing down into ...

Re: Time Warp Pi

Hi Ross,
My Sienna 73 (125bhp) PI has got a transmission oil cooler which is the twin round bar type if that helps.

Re: Time Warp Pi

Not critising in the slightest Ross, but is there any reason for fitting a later round top radiator? With your particular attention to detail, should it not be a square /flat top?
Nice to see the original blue fan as well!

Re: Wanted nice Mk1 2000

Coincidentally, I have been contacted today by a Register member who has a friend who is selling a Mk1 due to illness. I know of the car as it was previously owned by an elderly Register member who died of cancer several years ago. The car is a later Mk1 saloon, but is an auto so I dont know whether...

Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

Hello all, a quick speell on Google seems to indicate a 3/4" bore for the Vauxhall fitment? The flange orientation is probably Lockheed's way of ensuring that visually similar but different bore sizes do not get fitted by accident? Alec Hi Alec, Yes, the Mk1 brake master cylinder was also 3/4" bore...
