Re: 1966 Mk1 2000 Modifications

Hi Guys! Thanks for all of the input. I must apologize for the delayed response. When I arrived at work the morning of my post I was greeted with the news that I am to revive an old project which I am to work on secretly while still keeping my other projects ongoing. Consequently, I am saying farewe...

1966 Mk1 2000 Modifications

Hi There Everybody, I am looking for a fair amount of advice as I try to finally to do some serious work on my 2000 after 15 years of ownership. The help you have given me in the past has been well appreciated and applied. I apologize in advance as there is quite a lot on my mind. So off I go: 1: Th...

Thanks Clifford, I will try Chris Witor again. I would really like to establish a working relationship with him. There are so few 2000\'s here that expertise is lacking and there are also no specialist suppliers. As an aside, I took my TR250 for a 75 mile run as a tune-up for a rallye next...

Thanks Guys for your help! I will take all your suggestions into account. I just hope I\'m able to get the thing back on myself. The old saying of \"Installation is the reverse of removal\" can be a load of -insert proper expletive here- ! I can always have it towed to my mechanic to fix but I ...

Hello Again! As usual I need some assistance from you all for my 1966 Mark1 2000. I removed my leaky manual overdrive transmission and thought to take the clutch out as well. The throwout bearing (sorry for the American vernacular but I don\'t know the real name) was pretty chewed up with lots of ro...

Thanks Guys!
I do indeed know exactly what you mean now. They are the people who make your eyes glaze over while you are trying to think of a suitable polite escape.

Hello All, No further updates here just a couple of comments... Mike- I had noticed when I did the first strut that the angle was difficult so I jacked the suspension up at bit until it looked/felt right. This was really useful for the second strut as that one was much more difficult to fit. I think...

Hello All! My niece and I were able to get the car back together. I have one piece of advice though: don\'t get distracted after the Loctite is applied and the nut has been tightened part of the way down. This is especially important if the nut has dodgy edges that make stripping it with a socket&nb...

Thanks Guys! I am really glad to hear that I can re-use the nyloc nuts. All are in good condition (threads are good and I can\'t spin them by hand). I bought some Loctite last night for extra insurance. Mike- I am indeed using poly bushes (red). I have the whole kit but will have...

Hello All, I took my drag struts off to change the bushes this evening and I noticed that the nuts are of the nyloc variety. Can these be re-used or should they be replaced? Also, my manual has no information for this procedure so I am concerned that I might over/under tighten the nuts when I r...
