Re: Late 2000 Steering Wheel Centre - Wanted

The only way you could get something like it that wouldn't look out of place on a 2000 is to fit the one that had the word 'TRIUMPH' in the centre instead of '2500', although I can't think at this moment which model actually had these. My 2000 has one of these fitted to a PI/S/Stag wheel, it came o...

Re: Centre console removal

IIRC there is a spring-loaded plunger on the underside of the spindle of the fan switch knob, and some, but not all, of the choke cable knobs. Just depress the plunger via the little hole on the underside of the knob. If it's a non detachable type on the choke, disconnect the inner cable at the carb...

Re: Quickest way to get engine out

Take the inlet manifold off, complete with carbs so they don't get damaged, this will also give you a bit more 'wriggle' room! Remove the bonnet, as you suggested and then, if there are no lifting eyes, make up an endless sling from a length of strong rope, or better still, beg or borrow a webbing s...

Re: Mk1 2.5 PI Dashboard Wanted

I stand to be corrected, but neither a Stag or Dolomite dash will fit a mk2 2000 or 2500. Here's one that will........ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pre-Face-Lift-Triumph-2-5-2500-Pi-Dashboard/302974623640?hash=item468ab1df98:g:T2IAAOSwBPRb~Urq:rk:2:pf:0 No connection to me!

Re: Brake drums

Charles, I seem to remember in the dim & distant past (25+ years ago !!!) bolting two brake drums together back to back so I could drill the two holes you refer to in the correct place, so I think the answer to your question is yes you can!

Re: Quickest way to get engine out

Re: replacement radiator

I would try getting a few quotes to repair/recore your own rad first. I have used Serck Marston in Bolton a good few years ago, but here are a few others in Lancashire....
