Re: Top Front Panel Wanted

The two parts listed in the parts book look to be the upper exterior panel (ie between the front wings, just in front of the bonnet, plus the bonnet mounting panel which is the badly corroded bit in your first post.

Re: Top Front Panel Wanted

According to my 1974 parts book the p/n is 575893 and comes in two pieces, bonnet mounting & front upper panel assembly. Unfortunately none of the usual suspects list them apart from Chris Witor who is out of stock at the moment. Whether they are on Lloyd Reed's list of remanufactured panels, I'm no...

Re: Mk 2 saloon towbar WANTED

Not a Mk2 one, John, but there's an unused towbar for a Mk1 on ebay which must be a bit of a rarity these days!

Re: Old misfire - again

Clifford, I notice in your last post, referring to parts replaced, you have not tried a different rotor arm. I appreciate that you say you have a 'red' rotor arm fitted, but there could be a chance that it is a 'rogue' one that is faulty. Both my cars have had issues like yours in the past with both...

Re: Choke cable

There are two different types of choke cable fitted to our cars according to (I guess) the year of production. One type has a removable knob, held on to the ferrule on the inner cable by a small spring loaded plunger. The other type has a fixed knob on the inner cable ferrule. Whichever type you hav...

Re: Side repeater lights

The bulb you need is a GLB 254 festoon bulb. There are plenty of LED ones on ebay and the like.
Strangely, in over forty years of Triumph ownership I have never had to replace a side repeater bulb!

Re: HRW illuminated switch bulb

And if its not still in the switch knob, you will also need a short lightweight coil spring to keep the bulb pressed into the switch contacts.

Re: TAW 606J

Well, according to the DVLA database it is taxed 'til June this year but has no MOT. The last MOT in January 2018 (fail) does not make good reading however!

Re: Drivetrain knocking getting louder on braking

This may sound unlikely, but my Vauxhall Insignia had exactly the same symptoms as your 2500 when I first bought it. The dealer did a couple of jobs on it before I took delivery, including new rear brake pads. Unfortunately they forgot to tighten the rear wheel nuts up afterwards! Worth a look, I su...
