Lloyd Reed at South Wales Triumph, lists them but they are out of stock. I don’t suppose Anyone has any in their parts/panels stash by chance?

In the absence of any pre-formed panels, our body man has fabbed up some Sections from scratch and let them in. He’s also added metal back to the door edges and n/s rear wing. Now for the paintwork.

Sorted a Low speed mis-fire seemingly badly adjusted front carb, so need to check the mixtures again.

Then took her out for a high (legal) speed test up the local dual carriageway and discovered a high revs stutter when gunning it through the gears, which feels like fuel starvation. I have posted a query in the tech section if anyone can help?

It couldn't be anything as simple as excess sediment in the base of the pump or the gauze partially blocked in the pump restricting fuel flow that may be causing the hesitation or stuttering when the carbs fuel demand is at its greatest, could it? Equally, the S had an in line fuel filter just prior to the fuel pump - if this was fitted along with the S running gear, if this is partially blocked with sediment or silt, then maybe a new filter may help?
Or maybe a weak mixture?

The external filters are all new. Good point about the internal Pump filter, when I rebuilt the pump, the internal filter was quite distorted and although I corrected it, it would have been better if the rebuild kit had a replacement. It’s possible that the filter has returned to its previous rather mangled shape. Top off to check I think.

Good call on the internal pump filter, we have replaced the rebuilt fuel pump with a new one. On inspection of the old unit, the internal plastic filter was both twisted and detached. The replacement has largely cured the mis-fire apart from when screaming the nuts off it.

Plugs for that! Use Denso iridium plugs.
