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.

Re: Rostyle wheel trims

I have refixed the alloy nuts by tapping them and bolting them on..... but you need the nuts! I possibly have some if you wish to go down this route.

Very nice. PI saloon facelift is quite rare! Lloyd Reed of South Wales Triumphs will become your friend! Where did you find them? Keep us informed of your progress.

Duplicates deleted. I wonder why we're getting a spate of duplicates again?

Cheers,

I am also for ever deleting duplicate posts! Something to do with the delay in a comment saving onto the forum after hitting the submit button!
