  1. That kit is for oil leaks, dont know if it would work for fuel. Stuart.
  2. Go to Gates website for a better explanation. They have a product to sell on the Volks site. Willie here you go https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402094860670?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Stuart.
  3. I would move up to R14 Hose as thats more resistant to vapour escape. Also still try the talc dusting everywhere as it only takes the slightest weep to really stink. Stuart.
  4. What hose is that by the pump? The smell could be permeation from them. Also is that an ally tank? Have you checked the seams? Stuart.
  5. Sealed beam units that have been in storage for a very long time (Lets face it we havent really used them for anything for many years) do tend to burn out very quickly when pressed back into service. Just bin them and go to standard H4 or LED if that floats your boat. Stuart.
  6. If you look at my picture you can see its offset to the right to clear.
  7. If it does then your chassis isnt as good as it could be. If you have a good chassis then nothing should change from having the chassis and shell on stands placed under the wheel centre line to being on its wheels, furthermore if your suspension needs height setting then that would confuse your gapping even more. Stuart.
  8. No it works fine if you just offset the unit slightly. Stuart.
  9. Wiper rack and wheel boxes then loom then heater box and the two pipes to the adaptor plate on the bulkhead and add the plate, after that it doesnt matter so much. Stuart.
  10. I have a "Y" adaptor here but its standard steel Im afraid. Stuart.
  11. For the T7 You can use your original heater rheostat to control the fan and the fittings as you can see from my picture are just two pieces of 20mm x3mm bar bent up to suit and bolted to the dash support brackets, a lot easier to fit than the original. Plus you have the bonus of a whole lot more room behind the dash. Its the same output as the Clayton and so much cheaper too. Stuart.
  12. I suspect they will take one look at the way its constructed and say no. Stuart.
  13. This shows what you should have https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr2-4a/exhaust/exhaust-systems/exhaust-system-tr2-4-1953-65.html Obviously the front one is completely different and the rear one should have the strap straight and right angle brackets to allow it to sit like that. Stuart.
  14. All of those mounts are non standard so Im afraid all bets are off and your just going to have to go through it all front to back and adjust as required to get rid of any rattles. Stuart.
  15. Go for the T7 if your not worried about originality its more efficient and smaller so theres more room behind the dash. https://www.t7design.co.uk/3-5kw-lightweight-heater-with-side-vents-12v-187-d1e-05a.html I make my own brackets as the Revington kit is expensive. Stuart.
  16. As its a TR4 not a 4a all the above answers dont apply, do you have the rear mount fitted behind the rear box? Item No 45 to 50 here. https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr2-4a/exhaust/exhaust-systems/exhaust-system-tr2-4-1953-65.html See below just behind the main box Stuart.
  17. Torque setting is ....................Tight! Stuart.
  18. Unscrew the knob and then unscrew the bezel from the front and it will just drop out behind. Stuart.
  19. Not sure that one of those would reduce pedal pressure and theyre not an easy DIY fit. Stuart.
  20. I have fitted a servo to a clutch on a 6 its only a case of altering the pipe work and a T in the vacuum line. Use any of the aftermarket servo kits and fit to the left hand foot well, you do have to relocate the washer bottle but I just put it down the front by the overflow bottle . Stuart.
  21. Unfortunately all the manuals for tuning SU were written back in the days of real petrol, the guff we`re running on these days bears no relation in terms of how it burns etc so its really down to individual tuning of your engine and the type of fuel available in your location. A good session on a rolling road with someone who knows what theyre doing will make a lot of difference. Or conversely buy yourself a Wide band AFR kit and then you have your own rolling road. Stuart.
