Personally, I have had no problems with the auto adjusting mechanism as long as everything is clean and free (and ...

Re: Brake shoe adjuster question

Hi Sal, Have you got an original parts manual for your age of Triumph? They can provide a wealth of info, not only for the correct parts / nos, but also an indication of their correct assembly. There is a small cut out in the smaller half of the auto adjuster in which you can insert a flat bladed sc...

Re: mk1 steel wheel

I'm not promising, but I know I have various upper and lower Mk1 dash trim sections, although I would have to check whether I have any early lower sections. I can let you know by the weekend if you can't locate one elsewhere.... As you probably are aware, the Mk1 dash trim is bolted and glued to the...

Re: mk1 steel wheel

I may be able to provide you with a set of Mk1 rims, but would have to check - how desperate are you for them? Which part of the dash are you referring to - I presume you mean the centre cubby hole drop down lid forward of the gear lever? If so, how old is your car because early Mk1's had a black pl...

The A type was fitted to earlier cars, and then from 1973 ish, the J type overdrive was fitted although as discussed the A type was still found in 1974 registered cars.

Oh I am Dave - don't worry! Even the application forms for Club stands at both Tatton Park shows have come through and been submitted, so I live in hope they may be able to go ahead too!
