Re: filler hose

Have you checked the breather pipe on the other side of the car? Should vent to underneath.

Re: Fitting Alfa 156 seats

Fit the front first with the seat at an angle, then rotate the seat to fit one rear one, then 'spread the runner to fit the final one!

Re: Fitting Alfa 156 seats

I used the Alfa rails directly onto the Triumph floor pan. You will need to cut off the 90 degree drop section at the front (obvious when you see the rails) and drill the rails at the correct locations to accept a torx type bolt to attach to the floor pan. The rails are too narrow to re-use the orig...

Re: Fuel pump cleaning (& tank removal)

It just comes up through the floor. You will need to disconnect the fuel intake rubber, and the associated breather attached to it, and the tank breather on the top on the other side. Four bolts and the sender wires once the boot back board is removed is all it takes.

Cleaning overdrive internals.

I am due to swap an A type overdrive for one I have had for ages off a gearbox. I am thinking of swilling it out with paraffin to ensure I flush out any dust etc prior to fitting it. Is this OK to do wit all the bands/clutches etc? Anything else to think of prior to fitting?

Re: Electronic ignition

I think the Pertronix is the same as Aldon. The Aldon is a great bit of kit. All my Triumphs have them. I did try a much cheaper Simon BBC one once. The early cars rev counter does not work with it! Aldon would be my advice.
