Re: Intermittent starting

Mike I have a feeling you might be right. I think the Alternator was not charging properly. I have tested it and the values are OK but the battery was low. I have cleaned up the battery posts and Vacelined them. They looked OK but just be on the safe side. The measured values are now somewhat better...

Intermittent starting

I know there have been pages of info about this subject. I have read a lot and found no answer. Some time ago I noticed that the starter just buzzed twice (no clicking) but did not turn, then by the third try it allways started. The starting is excellent.

Wilhelm Schwebe

Wilhelm Schwebe Died a few mounths ago aged 93. He was the Karmann man who did the TR6 and the MKII range. I met him last year, a very unassuming man.

Clack Clack

When driving over bumps I hear several clack, clacks. The clack that worries me most, comes from the driver's door (LHD Drive) It is a heavy metallic sound. The sound is simular to a boot lid flopping up and down when there is too much play in the lock. I thought it was the lock but I cannot find an...

Re: Longest Triumph 2000 ownership?

I do not qualify for a single owner. My car has only had 2 owners, me and another person. Which means my car has shared two owners over 43+ years.
