Re: Strombergs / SUs

Hello Charles, "Strombergs MUCH better built!!" I do see this sort of comment from time to time but wonder on what basis ? Alec Supposedly from data available in the era. Strombergs were designed and built by Triumph as an alternative to the SU which they believed the factory was being overcharged ...

Re: Gearstick gaiter

I'm in the same boat as you but just in case I've bought a Stag one (eBay) and e-mailed vendor with regards to doing other sizes. He stated that was no problem (which is what I expected). Haven't ordered one as you say, a local yokel will knock up a couple for me using the old one as a templates. Kev

Re: Radiator cap mod

Is it an oem uk radiator with flanges for the factory fitting? At this stage of the game the rad could have been replaced a few times. Ditto the flanges. I let the radiator manufacturer/re-furb company of Unipart do my Stag radiator. The replaced flanges were not even close - whoever did it obviousl...

Re: Roller Rockers

I too would like some opinions on this subject. The original set-up as per Stanpart specification is a good, long lasting one. As parts become scarcer there may be a need to look at alternatives, especially if aftermarket products are poor (not enough Rockwell hardness at the tip of a rocker). I hop...

Re: Cloth seat material

Well, I've still got the seats stored in one of the garages so they can be made available. I've got a couple of weeks a/l to take during December so I'll root them out to check them over and what type the rears are. Difference is estate rear back is solid whereas the rear saloon back is wire.

Re: Location of Battery

Dead right on the Lucas Pacemaker info - my parts book (last printed) still shows probably the original page with a drawing of the Pacemaker. I certainly think the 015/038, and the ilk, numbering came in either when Unipart was set-up or during one of the reorganisations. I have receipts for 015's f...
