    Hi Waldi At present its not worth paying for a £75 hardness test [other than to satisfy my curiosity ] when I can use that money toward a new Cam + Followers Like most Tr engine problems , the actual cause may be different to the strongly suspected cause but in reality my time is now is set on rechecking the whole engine and to put a new cam in that I can trust .

    peter ~ running in oil used bought from Classic & Modern workshop ~ unused cam other than 14 miles actual road use: cam damage not down to oil type used. I reckon that this ends the discussion loop .Thanks everyone robin

    thanks for that roger ~ I am going to search for a company that can test my cam for hardness, which I think is suspect . robin

    Hi waldi ~ ok checked my used black seal and looking at a slight angle it reads as 15 not 16 not sure it if was the mould number or my eyes so it is 15 x 24 x 7 cheers robin

    Thanks Waldi I intend to fit these brown Viton seals. It is not only Revington , its Rimmer , Moss and TRGB [have not checked with TrShop ] They all flog the back version ~ its kinda ironic , given that Chris Witor does specialise on the Triumph saloons. Not sure if Neill Ferguson [ K Raven Smith on Ebay] refits PI distributor drives . All the PI drive pedestals I have taken off over the years have shown black seals so finding out about the brown Viton ones is interesting. Either way I may well ask Revingtons about the black ones ~ all helps with the 'knowledge' cheers robin

    Good points ,the chris witor link is very useful as Prestige use the brown version in their overhauls My black ones are from Revington and are the correct size . Rimmers offer the same type The size/s being on one of the seals taken out. 16 24 7 Thanks everyone, I guess that draws my enquiry to a conclusion.

    Anyone fitted the Pi distrib drive seals ~ there are two of them . These seals are hard to the touch p/ n ref 145720 The seal nearest the distrib is the more differcult of the two to put in without distorting it . Thanks
  10. thanks everyone , just hoped that a resto bod would have a few seal kits left however will chase up the info given which is a great help ~ anyone else having great tips all will be welcome robin gwtr

    I have redone my heater on my 6. The Heater resistor may need replacing If this is so on yours and you need a new one as per original design I have one ~pics on request . cheers robin. cringle@waitrose.com
  15. I have a 73 M reg Tr6 , its taxed under the heritage sysytem. In 1987 I changed the plates. I want to have the original M number plate reinstated onto it and to keep the personalised plate on it now on retention. The V137 is for taking it off and the retention part Anyone familiar with the right DVLA form / process for the re instatement of the original plates. I have pics and a photocopy of the orginal Reg paperwork. thanks ~ robin
