Re: Project Pi

Just like to share the completion of my dads Pi. We tried to get it to Lydden hill but failed. After passing its mot on the Friday over the weekend test driving there were a few problems so we decided not to take it. So we had to fix the radiator which we had repaired at top now it has decided to le...

Re: 74 Triumph 2000 mk2 dangerously slow and sluggish.

You have exhausted my checklist in the ignition/timing department. I haven’t owned a carb 2000, being a Stromberg version I don’t know if it has a vacuum advance on the dizzy, if you suspect a leak and all other vacuum inlets and outlets etc are behaving themselves this diaphragm could be split. You...

Re: 2500 TC has the wrong head ?

In your previous post you said you bought the from a dealer? Depending on how it was sold / how it was described. If the dealer is a reputable one I would ask him some questions.

Re: Historic race Lydden Hill Kent 27/5

Fantastic day out Charles would definitely attend next year! As you mentioned classic car racing and car show spoilt. Impressive performance from these little Austin’s https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1Qm039zxncT_diA3WqxP178yXDtTwoDiO https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1NlVW7zhetD327ZmScqocejsyBeW7I8zx

Re: Wanted nice Mk1 2000

What about this MK1? https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1109226 Looks a good project that one! I agree with Tony what I paid for the Pi with a seized engine, a bit of rot in the wings and tired paint. To break even I would have to sell it for 15k. But our big saloons have rarely tested the water ...

Re: What colour

Chris have you thought about matching it to the body colour. It’s damson isn’t it? It’s quite a dark red so would look quite subtle, besides once all the gubbins are in you don’t see a lot anyway on the pi. It’s big decision! There’s no unnecessary keyboard wear in discussing it. :wink: I’m painting...
