Re: Crankshaft thrust washers

A point to consider is the origin of the MM engine you are refurbishing, if its come from a car with an auto gearbox, its more likely too have less wear on the thrust washers than one from a manual g/box car, due to the clutch mechanism trying to push the flywheel/crankshaft forwards.

Re: Clutch advise please

The slave cylinders are relatively cheap & available, the master cylinders a bit more elusive & expensive, but repair seal kits and springs can be sourced, see Chris Witors site. Some owners have fitted Land Rover 90 or 110 master cylinders with slight modification to the hole in the bulkhead and fi...

Re: Wheel nuts

I know its not every ones cup of tea, but you may get a response on the various Triumph 2000 or Stag facebook pages, a lot of members use them these days. As John said, they're expensive new, £5 or £6 each. Try Lloyd Reed or David Harvey on FB for starters. Good luck!

Re: My new Mk 1

That is a very honest example of an early mk1, which reminds me of my first T2000 back in the 70s, very similar with the twin spots and the same colour (gunmetal?) I generally preferred mk2's at one time, but I'm appreciating mk1's much more these days! We have a resident Register mk1 guru Lee who h...

Re: Electric Power Steering

Roger has just this week advised on FB that he has several pas conversion kits available that he was willing to take to the National in just over a weeks time. I'll PM you his number so you can catch him beforehand.

Re: Electric Power Steering

Think it was a Corsa D, but they had problems with them fitted to Corsas, never mind owt else!
Not to say it can't be done, but not straight forward I would have thought.

Re: Fuel line leak on 2000mk2 1970

After reading all the posts on this topic, I decided to have look at my car, especially as it has a long trip to the National coming up. All the 'under bonnet' rubber fuel hoses have been renewed fairly recently, but not the one from the tank outlet to the nylon fuel line. I was pleasantly surprised...
