Re: Heater Valve

I don*t understand. If Triumph tried to use common parts, why are we going to MG or Jaguar or or to get a valve which is standard on the TR series? The TRs have the same engine, so why should they have another valve? I am not talking about quality. :? :? :?

Green Clips

Does anybody have a solution, for replacement of the green clip that keeps the heater control cable in place. It is the one near to the control lever on a MK II heater: My hands are too big for the space and I have not found a tool that could be used. The clip is simular (but not the same) as the cr...

Re: Accelerator part 101614

Thanks. I have sourced one from one of the lads in the Stag club. Sometimes I think the Stags and the Saloons should join up together as there are so many simalarities.

Re: Accelerator part 101614

I think the clip was never there, because is must be inside the car and it isn't. Nothing has been touched in this area from day 1. Even the carpets are still as they were when delivered. A vacuum cleaner cannot get at the area where the clip must be. I have found out that the BA screws on the clamp...

Replace heater control cable MKII 2000

Does anybody have instructions on how to replace the heater control cable. I believe this had the number 80-10-01, I can only find 80-10-06 in my 1973 Stag manual. My saloon is a very late one and it does not mtach up. I am trying to do it in situ. So far with little sucess.

Re: Accelerator part 101614

I have just found out that this little clip is missing :x So I will have to take the carpets out and start looking. Unfortunately I have the car in an unheated, above ground garage, I do not want to lay on the floor to find this dammed clip, when the temperature at the monmentis 8° F

Accelerator part 101614

Can anybody tell me how the Cable location collar for the accelerator pedal is fixed to the reinforcement plate for the throttle pedal. Is it a push in? Is it a weld? Is it held in with a circlip? In the Stag book there is no information. From the parts catalogue page 21-24 it could be a circlip job...

Re: The first car club in Britain to achieve Brexit

I think the points have been made from both sides. It is now time to calm down and get back to every day business. For me the affair is finished, thanks to you all.
