Re: 74 Triumph 2000 mk2 dangerously slow and sluggish.

I had a simular thing. It was not just one thing it was several. a.) Accelerator pedal not going down far enough because of the thick carpeting, b.) Measured the fuel pressure going to the carbs (somewhat down) i.e Not enough fuel. Cleaned everything changed the filters etc. c.) checked the timing t...

Re: J Type wiring

I have just come back from the garage 3 1/2 hours trying to put 4 electrical connecters in place. I did drop the G/B down a bit it helped a lot. I got the new looms in place using a TR6 J type logic. The colours and everything are the same. Charles just as you said the sound deadening was the cause ...

Re: J Type wiring

Have just come back from my garage. I have just in case renewed the gear lever cables. The old cables just go to some squash type connectors (definately not Triumph bits) under the body work. Even with a mirror I have no idea where they are going. Reverse lights OK. So it looks as though I will have...

Re: J Type wiring

I don't quite get that one. I can see checking the switch cables. The brown lead goes to earth and the black lead has 12V permanent. So if I pull out the grommet I presume I can get at the leads coming up from the G/B but what is that going to tell me? I do not know what is going where. I need to kn...

Re: J Type wiring

Charles as I suspected, you have just confirmed that the junction is under the metal body work after the grommit. If I pull out the grommit is there enough wire to get at the bullet connector or whatever.

Re: J Type wiring

That sounds good. I hate taking the G/B off or dropping it down. Or even worse taking the O/D off on your own.

Re: J Type wiring

This problem has been around since the Scotland National. Oil has been checked. I have reserve cables from Rimmers but the horror is dropping th G/B down. Therefore I am hoping there is some way of doing it without dropping the G/B. I know the A type vewry well and over the years I have had it out a...

Re: J Type wiring

Alex
