Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

Returning to the question after visiting the project car 2.5Pi saloon (Mk1), with original 2500cc engine that carries CR prefix engine number.... Measured distances From the boss on the block to the dipstick tube open end - 116 mm From cup on the dipstick to LOW mark - 283mm These don't seem to matc...

Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

I should have written, engine for comparison must be from 2.5Pi mk1 saloon or estate. That's because saloons/estates have canted installation of engine.

Thanks,

Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

Yes, these will help if they were measured on original Triumph 2.5Pi mk1 engine. (I'm not sure which changes were brought in through evolment of mk2.)

Measured values sound logical except - possibly - the height of dipstick tube that differs from earlier measured values in this thread.

Thanks,

Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

Hi again. It would help the comparison if somebody would measure the distance from oil dipstick felt washer cap to FULL mark and to LOW mark. Engine must be 2500 mk1 Pi, because there are differences in how much engine was canted in different models. (2.5Pi mk1, TR5Pi, TR6, 2500S, ... ) I will check...

Found an unused 2000 Mk2 spare part bare block, but unluckily it lacks the oil dipstick tube.

Re: Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

The engine block type was used in Triumph 2.5Pi (mk1) and TR5 (Pi).
I'll try if I can still find identical engine block for comparison. Have to check also if there are chances that oil dip stick has any part that could have moved itself.
Thanks for your help so far,
J

Oil dipstick tube position for 2500cc engine (1968) ?

Is there any way to reposition exactly correctly oil dipstick tube that got removed during engine rebuild? I have no other engine block available for comparison. Regardless of correct oil fill volume oil level is too high according to the oil dipstick that goes too deep into the bore on side of engi...

Re: MK1 white faced KPH speedo DESPERATE !!!!!

I guess this case is already closed. Anyway, find a photo attached. 1057 (640x360).jpg 1059 (640x360).jpg There's old speedo that I took from a wreck in Finland about 25 years ago. I don't offer it because there's pitting, rust, and marks on edge. Old Triumph Kph speedos like this used to have a sti...
