  3. I understand that if your battery charger won’t charge your battery as it senses too low a voltage, the trick is to put another healthy battery in parallel with it and try again. Regards Bill
  4. Ah, should have read further, table on times for 3rd gear increments...... 20-40 5.7 sec 30-50 5.5 40-60 5.3 50-70 5.8 60-80 6.8 Regards Bill
  5. Why not compare "in gear" acceleration with that of the Motor test of June 7th 1969? That way you avoid any antics with the clutch or gearbox..... Times below use o/d so may not be so easy to pick a 20 or 30 mph increment, but you get the idea! 0-30 3.2 sec 0-40 4.7 0-50 6.5 0-60 8.5 0-70 10.9 0-80 14.5 0-90 18.6 0-100 24.7 Regards Bill
  6. Latest from the site reveals that the 1970 car sold post auction for £13500 plus fees after it didn’t reach vendor’s reserve. Vendor would take home £12690. Regards Bill
  7. XPP 108J March 1971 CP with O/D realised £16702 including buyer's fees with vendor receiving £13544 (12% plus VAT and 5% plus VAT respectively on hammer of £14600) CYK 606H February 1970 CP without O/D bid to £13101 and didn't reach reserve price. It may be subsequently sold by negotiation. Regards Bill
  8. Showing my lack of knowledge of Triumph parts, are the trailing arms off a PI saloon or any of that range, the same as those on a TR6? Regards Bill
  9. I did respond to Ken when he posted and am due to meet him soon. He did recall there being a part rear bumper and odds from when he did some repairs but as to the exact items, he says they're out of reach in his loft! Perhaps I should have acknowledged this earlier! Regards Bill
  10. A quick check of DVLA of PWH 909H reveals that it was last taxed in 1991 and the MOT database doesn't go that far back to give any details of previous MOTs. It might have been bought in the renovation boom of the late 80's and never got restored for some reason..................... The colour and hard top look good though! Regards Bill
  11. Try BA9S and MES E10 Colin. Regards Bill
  12. I was way out on my pricing....... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MK1-ESCORT-RS1600-Logbook-plates-Monza-Blue-RS-BDA-TWINCAM-/115263600462?hash=item1ad63ef74e%3Ag%3AfXMAAOSwaIViFTbS&nma=true&si=%2Bfp1R4l3mFwWGuxsogXiAdOBLoI%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Old-Green-Log-Book-Memorabilia-JAGUAR-ETYPE-OPEN-SPORTS-1965-/353947429165?hash=item5268e9292d%3Ag%3AO1cAAOSwI6ViImqX&nma=true&si=%2Bfp1R4l3mFwWGuxsogXiAdOBLoI%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Regard
  13. Have they? Perhaps I underestimate the collecting bug, but why would anyone pay £200 for an old log book for let’s say, a Mini Cooper or Mk 1 Escort on that popular internet auction site? Regards Bill
  14. Rather sadly, I checked the length of the four NOS ones I have from around 1985 bought from C&B. I don't have numbers 1 and 4, 3 and 6 still coiled in sealed bags but 2 and 5 are in straight bags and these measure: 2) actual pipe 777 mm, so centre to centre adds another 17 mm making 794 mm and 5) actual pipe 497 mm, so centre to centre adds another 17 mm making 514 mm. So number 2 being ~ 7 mm longer, I can't see making any difference but number 5 being 38 mm short may..... The label for number 5 has the Leyland L in a circle, made in UK 1 x UKC362 followed by S350 K9.
  15. Thank you Derek. Orientation my fault! It does show some rather poor MIG welding dressing at the top of the B post. The rest is better but hey ho, none of it will be exposed when trimmed....... Regards Bill
