72 triumphs booked, and a few owners :lol: :lol: Only 24 of them are pi's though - and that includes John's & mine.

Still have an engine to build, some door hinges to cut off & weld on new ones, interior to finish & fuel lines. 56 sleeps isn't sounding a lot of time...

Its only 49 sleeps now, Sharon, but at least there is a chance of 24 PI's after rousing Johns Sienna PI from its 20+ year slumber today!
Still a bit to do, but I'm sure it will make it.

Yes, Plan B (the Sienna PI) has now started! I just felt there was far too much work to get the white PI to the National in the time left. (Why does the nice weather start so near to the National??!!??)
After being asleep for approx 21 years, it turned over ok by hand, so the old (4 star!!) fuel was drained out, fuel lines cleared, but the pump was solid, so several replacements were tried. One sounded better than the others, didn't get hot and didn't leak (!) which did the trick, so with some new fuel, points, condenser, dissy cap and a borrowed battery, a quick oil change and plug clean, after about half a dozen churns, it fired into life!! Excellent! Trouble is I had taken the exhaust off for some reason (can only think someone wanted an auto mild steel system, and having a stainless already for it, I sold it?!?), and it sounded like a bronchitic dragster! :lol: :lol:
Rear brakes were seized, but everything seems reasonably straight forward (?!?), so new hydraulics and some steering and suspension items, cooling parts / rubber hoses, exhaust and new tyres are all there waiting to be fitted, so hopefully.... fingers crossed! The PI system will be learning curve again, as I haven't run a PI since the mid nineties... but I don't think there will be too many issues, hopefully!
A quick bath to get rid of 21 years of dust, and it looked a million dollars! (well, as much as a Sienna one can! :D )
Back to the garage......

Will be bringing one Pi's. If I have a fuel tanker to follow I could bring two but that could be a logistical nightmare later on. We are continuing our hols in Devon for another week. I'll have a think about it. Also the MK2 is a pig to steer no PAS, got lazy since my youth. I count 39 sleeps to go ish.

Car MOT’d and seems reliable - so barring complete disaster our Swedish registered Arctic 2000 will be starting south complete with the whole family on about the 20th June. Hopefully Doug will have an overdrive gearbox ready dor swapping in ready in time

Having just returned from this years National at Paignton, Devon - what a superb week! Fantastic weather in a beautiful part of the country, a 1st class site and a brilliant turn out of Triumphs! The display of Triumphs, especially the rows of PI's, on the Saturday was stunning!
A big big thanks to Derek and Sharon for their outstanding efforts in arranging this week long event - up there as one of the best Nationals in my opinion!
