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...

Re: Gearbox/overdrive question

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. There are relatively minor visual differe...

Re: hello

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!

Re: Gearbox/overdrive question

Hi Sal, The body numbers aren't much help to you really, as there are no known (so I believe) records of specific vehicles they related to. It looks like the engine isn't the original from new - the BW at the end indicates it originally was mated to an auto box. That in itself isn't really an issue ...

Re: Prop shaft question...

The similar principle of a the sliding spline and UJ exiting from the gearbox on a BW35 auto Triumph doesn't seem to have any adverse affect relative to driveline vibration.
