Re: Convert TC to S spec

As regards the tyre sizes, Dave B on here runs 15" Minilites on his 2500, but I don't know his full tyre size. There must be a web site that gives the rolling circumference of various wheel and tyre sizes? I use 195/65/15 on my 2500, and they are a very snug fit in the rear arches, dont know how an...

Re: Convert TC to S spec

I dont know what you are prepared to pay for a good manual S, but this seems to be worth a look, a South African spec 2500S. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1977-TRIUMPH-2500S-MANUAL-WITH-OVERDRIVE-Genuine-50000-miles-Service-history/292729912741?hash=item44280ffda5:g:VU8AAOSwuxhbnj6X In the long run a l...

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.
