  1. Triumph 2000 boxed did not have a dipstick, or O/D on 2nd gear. I think the top cover is from an early 3 synchro box, but with 4 synchro selectors. Bob
  2. Well, the 1st question is can you get 40thou under bearing shells ? 2nd would be is the crank case hardened, & if so how deep. If yes to 1, & no to 2 then I guess it should be OK. Bob
  3. It does not explain the lack of resistance variation of the sender, when float is raised ? Bob
  4. Starting would be delayed if float bowls were not full, as the pump would not start until pressure had built up. maybe that's a good thing ? Bob
  5. They are the same size, & fit well on 4" (TR2-4A) 4½" (TR5) & 5½" (TR6) wheels Bob
  6. Or, heat the whole thing up & quench a couple of times, then hacksaw a slot across the exposed end (inside the fork, & try using a screwdriver to remove it Bob
  7. Happy Birthday Bob. Another Bob
  8. When I re-built my 4 synchro box I replaced all the synchro rings with new from Moss. 3000 miles in they are working fine. Bob
  9. You should be able to buy piano wire at any good model shop. It's commonly used for Radio controled aircraft landing gear. Bob
  10. Hope you had a good one Alan Bob
  11. Great footage Hamish, engine sounds great. Any idea what BHP it's pushing out now ? Bob
  12. I would have thought that adding a gasket (of the right material) would definately help, & if needed "Firegum" or equivalent is intended for high temperatures.

    Rodbr's day

    Happy birthday Rod Bob
  15. Why not fit a modern "blinker box" - much more reliable. They can be altered to fit inside an original metal can (I have done a few) Bob
  16. As said above, having sold one of my cars, I wanted to alter the photos shown in my signature area. I can't see how to do it anymore ??? Bob
  17. I would agree with your diagnosis. Bob
  18. I like the way he checked the liner protrusion !
  19. Can most highly recommend classiccarleds.co.uk Bob
  20. If you add a spring you will most probably have to adjust the length of the push rod to give a small ammount of free movement. Bob
  21. I carry a spare Pertronix unit, will be much easier to change to in the event of a problem that reverting to points etc. Bob
