Re: Fan thermo switch

The original S one was fitted in the 1/2" hose that runs from the thermostat housing to the inlet manifold. Both N.Z. and Aussie one's had these fitted . You should be able to pick up a second hand one fairly easily I would think.

Re: Cleaning overdrive internals.

Re: Electronic ignition

Nothing wrong with the Pertronix unit. Have fitted them to all my Triumphs and a big improvement on points and condenser.

Re: Tatton Park - Classic and Performance Car Spectacular June 2018

My only problem I have with the black rear panel is that they rust underneath.
Had an S and had to replace the complete panel on it for this reason. didn't notice the rust until I took the black one off for a cleanup. Beware :cry:

Re: Dilemma

Over the years I have wrecked several 2500's. I bought them cheaply at the time, got a recently recon'd motor and a couple of overdrive gearboxes this way.

Re: Wish I Had Somewhere To Keep Her !

Trouble is I'd then have 4 cars. I'd never sell my TC which I've had for 20 years. My BMW Z3 convertible I got to reluctantly replace the Spitfire. My knee wouldn't let me in or out of her. The 525i station wagon far too comfortable and useful to sell. :shock: :cry:
