Re: Auxiliary oil feed to rockers

I wouldn't bother to be honest. They fit one end into the main oil gallery (allen screw at same level as oil pressure switch) or off a tee from the oil pressure switch at one end, and into the back of the head replacing the bolt at the nearside corner with the banjo bolt and copper washers supplied ...

Re: Mechanical Fuel Pump Differences

Had this problem for years on my rally car. Carbs rebuilt, re stripped, fuel pump the same. Sorted it in the end. Change the plugs to Iridium Denso ones. Yes really! Only took me about 7 years to sort it!

Re: Warning lights

Dave B, the handbrake switch is easy to get to. The gaiter has a velcro opening on the seam for easy access!!

Re: Bad oil leak

Sounds like the rear seal, but get them to check the sump gasket at the rear. Quite often can be nipped up. Oil from here drips off the rear plate that the gearbox attaches to.

Re: Triumph 2000 Classic Car Insurance

Been with Footman James for about 20 years for the whole fleet including the modern and have made several claims. Great value and very easy to deal with in all matters.

Re: tyres mk1

The other thing you need to consider is the wheels. Mk1 wheels are only 4.5J, 4 1/2 inches wide. Wider tyres then have more of a tendency to 'roll' off the rim. Mk2 steel wheels are 5J and the later 'S' alloys 5.5J. Even using the Mk2 steel rims makes a huge difference.
