Re: Mk2 Estate Hubs & Diff, panels- Wanted

The Stag diff mounts the same way as the Mk1 and estate (i.e with the steel bracket on the back) and the diff casing is a smidge larger to accommodate a slightly larger crown wheel and pinion (but this makes no difference in terms of fitting). All Stag diffs are 3.7:1. The Stag prop shaft input flan...

Re: Dashboard removal and re-covering

Taking the dash out on a Mk2 is indeed surprisingly easy (unlike Mk1 where it's welded in!). Remove the various bits attached to the dashboard that will get in the way (wooden bits, centre console, heater ducts etc) them then it just unbolts. Think having the dash recovered has been done (can't thin...

Re: Service notes & website question

The service notes are available in both paper and electronic format (CD Rom) via Malcolm and Jan Stewart - "regalia at triumph2000register dot co dot uk". There is a members area on the forum (not that there's much on there at the moment) you need to get an admin to change upgrade you. There is a fo...

Re: Mk1 parts wanted

If you look in the other post his Mk1 is a "C" reg pre-facelift.
Looking it up on the DVLA site it was registered March '65 so probably the early type.

Re: Halogen conversion kits

Mk1 headlamp wiring also runs behind the RH inner wing (in fact most of the wiring runs that way as the fuse box is located at the front of the RH inner wing).

Re: Gearbox swap

Depends whether your new box is an A type or J type. The longer type studs and spacers for the gearbox cross member are definitely required for a J type o/d (not sure about auto boxes as I've never has one!). It's made from 2 stud with a bit of plate tacked between so as Alec says you could easily m...

Re: Rocker shaft

Dave builds engines so he's not a parts supplier in quite the same sense as Rimmers or Chris Witor, but does have a stock of some parts including some NOS and parts he's had batches of made. If you need something there's certainly no harm in asking, if he doesn't have something I'm sure he can advis...

Re: Rocker shaft

"Triumphix-uk" is our Dave Harvey so would suggest that's the superior product.

Re: Door catch strap

I think it's the rears that are handed? Plus I think they are slightly different on Mk1 versus Mk2 too? (not hooked at the end?) - So that would be 6 different types.......... Anyway, they're all a pretty bad design, they angle at the bottom is too sharp and they fatigue and break off. I'm sure it m...
