Re: Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

The bulkhead bush was fine with no play and no perishing so I left it be. Unfortunately the rubber sleeve for the spring was in less healthy condition and fell apart when I touched it so I'll have to come up with an alternative arrangement there. I'm not sure about the provenance of the wire locking...

Rubber steering coupling - does this look right?

I swapped out the rubber steering coupling in my 2500 today as the last one had split quite badly but on reassembly it definitely looks like it's under quite a lot of torsional strain. I've loosened the top and bottom column clamps and also the steering rack clamps to see if a subtle shift in alignm...

Re: Why no love for autos?

I've not had any direct experience of an auto Triumph but I did have a Saab 900 a while back with a BW35. It was a bit jerky from memory and not the most exciting car to drive, but then again it was old and had filthy burnt trans fluid when I got it so probably wasn't the finest example of the unit....

Re: A/C - Heater fan controller

I'm in Adelaide and have a 1977 2500S with AC (a Sanden system which I think has been installed since the car was new). It doesn't have the cabin thermostat though. At present the system is not functional - the interior units blows air when switched on but the rest of the system is discharged and wo...

Steering lock - Part number 160337

Exciting times for anyone who's currently starting their car with a screwdriver. Rimmer Bros have had the long-obsolete and prone to falling apart steering column lock re-manufactured - they'll be receiving 1000 of them around 31st Jan. Part number 160337 - fits Stag, Saloon and Dolomite, maybe othe...
