Re: National 2018 update

Geoff, I have to agree with Sharon & Colin, its not all about the cars at all, there's all sorts of other things going on, as Colin has referred to. The ladies in our local group are not particularly into car related stuff, but still look forward to and enjoy the week. On the only day that is anythi...

Re: Location of Battery

Actually, the original battery spec. was a Lucas Pacemaker, red top with translucent case. If memory serves, the model no. was B9 or A13, relevant to the number of plates in the battery. They have been obsolete for quite a while now, probably since the current style of battery id 015,096 etc came, I...

Re: Door catch strap

Actually Ted, I think the rear ones are not handed but the front ones are, so 'only' 3 different types! Not really relevant though because, as you say, the RH front is like rocking horse droppings anyway! Cheers, Mike. Mike, its the other way round (on a mk2 at least). Fronts are same for either si...

Re: Location of Battery

In the myriad of battery sizes and capacaties available these days, there seem to be two constants, battery widths of 135mm and 175mm. I dont think there is anything above 45a/h available in the smaller width. Although my car has the wider battery tray, I had the same problem as you when I put a 250...

Re: flasher unit

I would think that would be fine, Mike. Just remember its likely to be Ho Chi Lucas from Bejing rather than Joe Lucas from Birmingham these days though! Will do the job, I' sure.

Re: flasher unit

Both my Triumphs have electronic flasher units salvaged from Vauxhall Cavaliers if memory serves, well over ten years ago now and have been completely reliable with a constant flash rate irrespective of engine running or not. New ones are available on eBay and the like for under a tenner, just be su...

Re: flasher unit

I would fit a 3 pin electronic flasher unit from a more modern vehicle. You would just need to add an earth wire to terminal +31 and then its a straight swap. Much more reliable, constant flash rate whatever the battery voltage, and a louder 'tick'. It will also support a trailer lamp should you tow...

Re: Trim Clips

Never heard them referred to as Tucker clips, but these are the correct ones for sill trims.

Those are for mk2 models, there is a smaller size available for mk1's.
