Re: MK1 Rear Trailing Arms Strip Down

I was told that MkI rear hub flange is thinner and weaker than the MkII flange.

AFAIK the hub asembly is interchangeable between the two version of trailing arms.

Re: NOS Triumph 2000 Trico Column Lock 601143 (132135)

That was fitted as standard to a MkIV Spitire; bloody awkward to get to if you had put your seatbelt on in a Spitfire :lol:

I think it became law post 1970 to have a steering lock fitted to a car as standard. Courtesy of the insurance companies complaining to the government.

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

Thanks Ted that explains the situation a bit better.

There was a process where 'short lived' molds could be made from existing panels. I recall that up to a 100 pressings could be made before the die had to be melted and recreated.

Is this what you are looking into?

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

There must be some large pressing facilities somewhere? Where do the GT6 bonnets come from?

Re: Mk2 Front Wings.

Ted I sent you a pm via the Club Triumph forum.

I do have some NOS wings that could be used (non-destructively) as templates.

Not for sale before anybody asks as they are earmarked for projects.


Who do TD Fitchett use to press their panels?

Re: Mk1 PI Brake Master Cylinder identification

I agree with Andy, mine has the integral aluminium resevoir and I think that is OE.
