Re: Electronic ignition

https://www.classicheads.com/Electronic-Ignition/ Both my Triumphs have been fitted with a kit from these guys, and have never missed a beat in over 10 yrs in the blue car, and over 15 yrs in the red car. I have never had to adjust anything once they were set up, they have been completely reliable, ...

Re: Forum Updated 18th August

Hi Simon, there seems to be a delay on submitting a post and it actually appearing, hence the duplicate and triplicate posts that have been made.

Re: Stiff gearchange

Assuming that the clutch is set up and working correctly, this is normal.
Facelift cars, (74 on) had a longer gear lever to try to overcome the problem, but unfortunately, that didn't help matters much.

Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

Pay attention at the back there, Charles :lol: Its a brake master cylinder Alec needs, not a clutch m/c. Here's a new one, Alec, allegedly fits the the Triumph mk2's as well as the Cresta PB/PC, but check the position of the mounting flange. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vauxhall-cresta-1965-67-pb-to-c...

Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

As you say, Alec, they are very thin on the ground, and expensive when they do turn up. Have you tried getting quotes for having your old one resleeved with a stainless steel tube? There are several companies that do this specialist machining. http://www.classic-spares.co.uk/ http://www.pastparts.co...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

Hi John
A bit of digging found this, https://vdocuments.site/jpat-converter-guide.html (scroll down to p.34), but unfortunately doesn't tell you much more than harvey has just told you.

Re: Rimmers headlight switch

I doubt the wiring would be there on a 1977 car. If it is, there will be a red/yellow cable in the centre of the area behind the front grille, but in front of the radiator. Good luck!

Re: Longest Triumph 2000 ownership?

Can't beat that either with one car, but I have always owned at least one Triumph 2000/2500 since 1976, my first being a mk1 2000, then a selection of PI's and 2000's, then my current 2500 was bought in 1993, then the blue 2000 came along in 2006. It doesn't seem twelve years since I bought that one!

Re: mot

I am in a similar position with my 2500, the tax expires at the end of May, but the MOT expires at the begining of June. I have a V11 reminder, but this says 'This vehicle needs an appropiate MOT test certificate' as it was sent out in early May. I am going to wait until June and then tax the car ei...
