Re: Fluctuating Speedo

Sounds like the speedo head. A couple of drops of very thin machine oil will help it. Not too much though!! Alternatively the speedo can be serviced/refurbished at a company like Speedycables in Swansea.

Re: Radiator cap mod

If you mean that there is a gap between the radiator and the front vertical panel, the UK cars are flush at that point. My Oz 1971 PI had this flush arrangement and a mechanical fan only, and did not have trouble even when in Darwin. That included the PI system!!

Re: Radiator cap mod

I have electric fan and an oil cooler fitted in front of the radiator, and changed the radiator cap to a sealed top like an MGB and fitted a Stag overflow bottle with the pressure cap on it. Works a treat.

Re: Gearbox swap

I am pretty sure that the auto and A type overdrive drop studs are the same. The J type OD ones are longer. The spacer tubes are obviously longer too. All available on CW site!

Re: LeJog in a Triumph

Thanks for the images Ian, we were delighted with our silver medal, team prize and 6th overall. The conditions were somewhat challenging with ice and snow throughout Wales and Scotland. The 2000 was amazing, going up and down icy slopes, only having to push when on several occasions, Minis got stuck...

Toe geometry

I have been using my new Gunson tracking tool on the Mk1 rally car. The front wheels each read 0.25 degrees toe out. I reckon that that should be as near as damn it parallel or just toe in. The rear wheels are adjusted by shims on the rear shackles. The readings are 1.00 degrees toe in on the offsid...
