Re: Front Seats

Thanks Kev - that possibly opens a new avenue for me. What I don’t know is whether the Stag seat height can be the same as the 2000 with its height adjustment, or will need boosting up a little. I think I will whip my Stag drivers seat out and trial fit it in the 2000, although I might just wait un...

Re: Front Seats

Useful stuff here and some interesting options. Having read this string end to end, no-one seems to talk about refurbishing the existing seats. I have seen Chris Witor can supply new diaphragms, but does anyone stock the various foams involved? Every upholster I spoke to said they could do the foam...

Re: Newbie says hello

Hi Carboy0 here, I’m looking for my first 2000 or 2500, I have a Stag TV8 Man OD which I love, but the lure of a four door is too great to ignore. I have had a look on EBay and Facebook Marketplace and have been to view several but they are either more work that I am prepared to undertake or just p...

Re: Electronic ignition

I must try again with Petronix. I had a frustrating experience trying to fit it a few years ago. It seemed as if I'd been sold the wrong kit - the timing was about 30 degrees out, and non-adjustable. The fixing hole in the plate was in the wrong place, and I gave up trying to work out where it shou...

Re: Hello from the USA, 2500S Estate owner

Thanks gents, I do plan on joining the club as I'm sure it'll be of great help to have the resources I'll need to keep her on the road. Fortunately it seems Rimmers have a decent stock of parts as well as Chris Witor. I've had to order some things already such as a proper fuel tank as the car was p...

Re: Auto Flexi plate / fly wheel

Dolomites weren't ever fitted with 35 boxes. All I can say is that I've still got the box in the garage. :shock: Tell me the series number on the data plate and I should be able to tell you what it's really from. I don't think it's even possible to put a BW35 in a Dolly because the tunnel it to nar...

Re: Auto Flexi plate / fly wheel

Well, I've had auto boxes (35 and 65) on Dolly's, both 1500 and 1850 but not above 100k. Not had trouble on with the plate on those mileages and I always thought them bullet proof - but what's the value of just one other person's experience? A long time since I ran a 2500s with auto box (BW65) but i...

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
