Re: Heater temperature

Whoever told you the dash needed to come out Malcolm was over exaggerating a bit!!!
The drivers side parcel shelf needs to be removed, and I accept it is a little of a contortionist act, but that's it. But I guess though you do need flexible fingers!!!! :lol:

Re: Heater temperature

Assuming HS6's are fitted, yes there is a T piece in the metal pipe to the water pump housing. On Strombergs, from the heater matrix, the outlet pipes go to the banjo at the end of the inlet manifold, and then to the metal transfer pipe running behind the manifold to the water pump housing. This doe...

Re: Heater temperature

What was the problem with the heater, and what was done to 'fix' it? In my experience, the heaters in our Triumphs are not particularly good in comparison to modern standards. They get relatively warm, but not roasting hot like modern car heaters. Mine put out reasonably hot air; it's the fan that l...

Re: New memeber

Just a reminder, if you able to attend, the next meeting for the Lancashire Group is this Thursday, the 22nd February. With it being virtually a week before the end of this particu...

Re: National 2018 update

Hi Geoff, You are right - there isn't a Local Groups list in the February 2018 SIXappeal. I have checked the previous issue in December last year and there is a complete list on pages 38 and 39. If you do not have this copy, either send me a PM with your email address, and I will forward you a copy ...

Re: Converting 2500 from left hand drive to right hand drive

Hi Thorston, I think you are correct! I have 'googled it' and it would appear that vehicle movements within the EU are permissable as Single Market Rules apply under EU laws, as taxes will have been paid to the original destination country. However, when I made the enquiries about the PI in Cyprus, ...

Re: Barn Find 2000 Mk1

Re: Correct clutch kit?

Last time I replaced the clutch on my 'S' (in 2006), I used a Laycock cover, with a Unipart GCP177AF (asbestos free) plate. Gave a lovely light clutch, mid way biting point, and trouble free changes. If you fit the Borg & Beck cover and plate, then I understand (and I will stand corrected on this po...

Re: MK1 fueling issues?

Dave, Earlier in his thread you said it would start and run for 2 - 3 minutes and then splutter and stop. But I take it now it won't start at all? That indicates to me that one of the components (or adjustments) that you have made is the cause of it now not starting. I think you need to start changi...
