Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

Hello all, a quick speell on Google seems to indicate a 3/4" bore for the Vauxhall fitment? The flange orientation is probably Lockheed's way of ensuring that visually similar but different bore sizes do not get fitted by accident? Alec Hi Alec, Yes, the Mk1 brake master cylinder was also 3/4" bore...

Re: Mk 2 Brake master cylinder.

That one listed ^ has the holes in the mounting flange in a vertical plane (as does the Mk1), whereas a Mk2 that Alec requires has the mounting holes diagonally.

Re: MK1 Master cylinder seal kit

Hi Jeff, I'm not exactly sure which seal you are referring to. I am aware of the 'trap valve' or sometimes referred to as the 'check valve' (part no 502747), but the parts book does not show a seal specifically for this part of the kit. I have got boxes of seal kits for all the hydraulic parts of ou...

Re: Gearbox rear oil seal

I 'm not as experienced as 'harvey', but on the ones I have done, the rear seal pops out quite easily with the assistance of a long thin screwdriver. As said previously, just be careful that you don't score the alloy casing where the seal sits with the tip of the screwdriver whilst prising the seal ...

Re: NOS or rechromed items wanted

Hi Dave, The over riders fitted to the MGB look the same as the MK1 but they are different. The cut out where it fits round the bumper is at a different angle so an MG over rider fitted on a Triumph will lean backwards. The Triumph over riders have L and R stamped on the inside near to where the rub...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

Thanks to Dave , Harvey and Ross, I am now reasonably satisfied that the auto box with the id plate 452 in my 73 Sienna PI is the original one according to the Jpat guide, which lists it from 10/68 to 05/74. The one in the white 69 Mk2 PI with the 13EZ blue id plate auto box, according to the Jpat g...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

I managed to check the two auto gearboxes this evening, with surprising results. The '73 125bhp Sienna Mk2 PI with the lime green id plate has an all number prefix '452' followed by the stamped in serial no. The '69 132bhp white Mk2 PI has a mid blue id plate with the prefix 13EZ followed by the sta...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

Looked at both videos Ross - very interesting. I got the second one re the torque convertor, but the first one - well, I understood the basic principles, but then it went a little over my head (rather quickly!) So the original question about what the differences are still remain.... Maybe 'harvey' o...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

Hi Ross, I will check the H reg PI gearbox id code (with interest now!) over the weekend. So I may have the wrong gearbox in then....😕. And I may just check the other boxes whilst I'm at it so that I know what other boxes I actually have It would also be handy to know the thoughts or experiences of ...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

Thats good to hear Ross - I was thinking that at some stage I might end up changing the box!! I have quite a selection of good used autoboxes from a variety of cars I have scrapped over the years, but I didnt make note of the id plates. I have a 1969 Mk2 auto PI that I am debating whether to fully b...
