I try to collect any old one's I can.
I think we're being a bit hard on these things. Don't forget they're 40 plus years old and done a lot of bending. :shock:

Re: Brake Master Cylinder [1968 2000 mk1]

At the time was told if you have problems just clean it with a rag and fit new seals. Never had to. Mine is a tandem cylinder so a much cheaper option than a repla...

Re: Barn Find Triumph Pi

I think only the P I's came with bonnet soundproofing. The bonnet on my TC came off a PI. The only one I've seen.

Re: diff seal

Sorry, but looks like the pinion seal needs replacing. The oil will also have washed the grease from the quill shaft bearing which is a sealed grease filled one. this will also need replacing. Not the simplest of jobs. The nose piece will need to come off. I've always dropped the diff to do this but...
