Re: Rear Handbrake Cable Mark 2

the right-angled bar was specified for automatic transmission cars Y'know, that's how I remember it too. So either we're right - or both of us are wrong (as well as the parts book)! Cheers, Mike. Having a manual & an auto, I can safely say the auto has the right angled bar 158970 and the manual has...

Re: Door hinge pin

The easiest way to start would be to replace the bolt-on part of the hinges with some from a scrap door. I see you are in Exeter, try Andy Harrison in Crediton, he breaks 2000/2500 models and has lots of parts for sale usually. He is local Register group leader for Devon, his contact details are on ...

Re: Steering column bulk head rubber gromit

As Phil T says, easier with the shelf removed, also disconnect the multi-plugs for the wiper/indicator/lights & ignition switches to allow the steering column to be pulled back inside the car once the rake adjustment clamp & the top bolt in the steering shaft u/j have been removed. As previously men...

Re: Engine knock but good oil pressure

The "National" is a week long (or less if you wish) meeting of owners and people interested in the Triumph 2000/2500 range. Its not all car related though, plenty to do, day trips to local places of interest etc. The venue changes every year, but usually on a nice holiday park somewhere between Scot...

Re: Engine knock but good oil pressure

No, as far as I know, they usually crack from the bolts securing the flexiplate to the crankshaft, not the bolts fastening the plate to the torque converter.
If you Google image search "triumph cracked flexplate" you should get one two results to show what I mean!

Re: Engine knock but good oil pressure

My money would be be on the autobox flexiplate, I think that's where I would start investigating. Its easier to drop the gearbox to have a look than take the engine out, the engine seems happy enough with good oil pressure and compression readings. Those driveplates can develop radial cracks from on...

Re: Hi from Lancashire.

I tried to get a local friend of mine interested in your car when it was for sale, but he let the opport...

Re: Engine only stays started when starter engaged!

As Mike says, but on both my cars the ballast resistor is on the bottom alternator bolt, white in colour, 1/2" square x 2" long with two spade terminals on it.
