  1. Presumably the Auster had some modifications as it did the trip non-stop and was in the air for seventeen and a half hours. Long range fuel tanks and equipment to enable night flying? Mike
  2. I agree Chris, after all it is what Triumph recommended. Although to be fair they had previously stated SAE 30 or 40 for the gearbox. Both SAE40 and EP80/90 are used by various reputable experts for the gearbox and I think it has been established before on here that either are perfectly suitable and won't give any problems. Mike
  3. Mick, I don't have the actual itineraries but I do have quite a bit of information which may help. It may take a while to dig it out so give me a week or so and I will see what I can find. Mike
  4. Ralph, you have a PM Mike
  5. Hi Grant, Suggest you contact the Kent Group, someone there is bound to have a recommendation. Mike
  6. So sorry to hear this Tom, we have been away and didn't realise it was so close. Our thoughts are with you Mike and Marilyn P.S. I have the T-shirt and will treasure it.
  7. I have a similar problem Hamish.
  8. Many years ago it actually used to be on a TR3 but currently on a Mazda.
  9. Hi Ralph, Mine is 3in from the capping to the back of the steering wheel. Wheel is standard and I have a 3A upper column going into a TR7 intermediate column which then attaches to a Mk2 Escort rack. Any adjustment would be minimal, a small amount on the couplings I guess. All limited by the position of the rack itself I don't know how the different conversions compare. I find it quite comfortable and I am well over 6ft. Mike
  10. Colin, If you can PM me with your email, and commission number (TSxxxxx) from the bulkhead plate on lhs (facing the car) I can give you some advice. The process is different depending whether the car is a Home Export car (as it will originally have had a UK reg) or just an export. Whatever you do don't give the DVLA more information than they actually require. Mike
  11. My inbox may have been full, have now deleted a lot of messages. Please try again. Mike
  12. David, I now operate this service so if you would like to PM me with your email address we can get this going. Mike
