Mk2 pre facelift front seats - FOC

Got the seats out today, only to find that the drivers seat frame has three separate broken welds. The seat covers are good as is the passenger seat frame, all the runners are fine.

If there is brakefluid in the servo then the rear seal has gone on the master cylinder.

Re: Water pump query

That’s fair enough then, I should have realised when there were no adverts for upgrades anywhere. Being a Stag owner, I’m a little paranoid about cooling. Whilst at Stoneleigh I was chatting to a guy in the Triumph/MG indoor car park, he said that whilst most big Triumphs had a two core rad, some (2...

Water pump query

Whilst working on the engine, I was surprised to see that the water pump impeller only has four vanes. My Stag has 6 vanes, with option of the 12 vane impeller from the TR7.

According to the parts book, it is 513862.
Chris Witor is usually the best source of both info and parts for our Triumphs. I haven't bought anything from Rimmers for years........
Can you confirm the part number, I can find 513682, but not 513862.
