Re: PAS assistance level

Actually, that is quite common! I have had several PAS Triumphs over the years, and the feel of the steering does vary - as you say some are lighter then others. This also applies to manual steering as well. Other factors do come into it - i.e. the efficiency of the pump, tyre pressures / tyre size...

Re: CV joints

There was a long entry in the Register Service Notes "Bible" about 20 years ago, a copy of which was held by an NZ Triumph 2000/2500/2.5 Register member. It included an NZ Motor Corporation service update on vibration problems. One of the critical points was that propshaft UJ angles had to be withi...

Re: CV joints

Hi Kev, I've been running a set of CV driveshafts for 16 yrs now and can't complain - it's really fit and forget! I've done at least 40k miles until now without a problem ... As mentioned before you're looking for Stag items for a Mk2, TR6 ones are too short. I believe CDD offer Mk1 items as well. ...

Hello Kev,

Chris Witor sells them, I don't know where they are made.

I know that Alec. CW will only be able to obtain what is available to the market place in general. What I was saying is that the quality of the present GKN stuff is not as good as it was (in my opinion).

Re: CV joints

Hello Torque2me, personally I would not consider a CV joint propellor shaft, I just can't see any advantage bearing in mind how cheap and esy it is to replace Hardy Spicer joints? I find they last a long time also. Alec Are Hardy Spicer joints still made? HS was owned by GKN during the life of the ...

Re: CV joints

Never had any experience of them myself, but the few Register members I know who have bitten the bullet, and been able to afford their high initial outlay, have had nothing but praise for them. I was thinking of doing the prop-shaft first as the drive-shaft's are extremely costly (small batch numbe...

CV joints

Hi groupies,

Anyone changed to CV joints on either the prop-shaft or drive shafts?

If so, what is your experience?

Re: Why no love for autos?

There’s a lot of comment on the Stag Owners Club forum about an update to the BW35 or BW65 three speed auto gearbox with a later three speed and overdrive ZF box from a later Jaguar. It seems that the conversion is about £4K-£5K, but it transforms the Stag auto improving driveability and fuel consu...

Or, strictly speaking, a TR6C engine (carbs not PI!)

That spec sounds awfully like an 'S' spec though.

Cheers,
Mike.
Off the top my head I think 'S' was 106 bhp and 105 mph. Them TVR's must be a lot lighter or had different gearbox/fd ratios.
