Re: Old misfire - again

Accelerating uphill, puts the biggest load on the fuel delivery system. In no particular order I would check the following; 1. Dirt in the float chambers - whip the tops of the float chambers and check - add filters, blow out the hoses, clean out fuel tank. 2. A slowly failing mechanical fuel pump -...

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

I think that would be ideal as it will sense the temperature on the radiator side of the thermostat. Until the thermostat opens you're not really bothered as the engine isn't up to temperature. Once the thermostat has opened, then the temperature either side of the thermostat should be the same. As...

Re: Front Seats

Thanks Kev - that possibly opens a new avenue for me. What I don’t know is whether the Stag seat height can be the same as the 2000 with its height adjustment, or will need boosting up a little. I think I will whip my Stag drivers seat out and trial fit it in the 2000, although I might just wait unt...

Re: springs

Just to possibly throw a spanner into the conversation. On my Stag, I felt the rear springs were very soft, although roughly the standard ride height, with a bit of weight in the boot or with a rear seat passenger, as you pulled away the mud flaps would ground on the road. I too checked what the pou...

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Exactly Mike.

Hold that thought! If CW doesn’t come through then I’ll come back to you if that’s OK?

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Yes I have the Revotec system on my Stag, with the switch in the top hose, I wanted to avoid that too. If I can find a thermostat housing either with the extra port already drilled/tapped or undrilled, that would be great. I can drill/tap/adapt as neccessary. I am probably being way too anal, but I ...

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Yes the bolt pattern is common across lots of Triumphs, including Herald, Spitfire, GT6, Vitesse, TR6 etc.

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

That’s great Clifford. My engine has the 2500 arrangement for the temp sensor, so if anyone has the 2000 type with the sensor in the thermostat housing going spare, I’m happy to talk beer tokens.
