    Brake Fluid

    What Pete said + Silicone is often coloured purple and doesn't need changing, that's one of the reasons for having it. Silicone and the others don't mix, in fact when you change to silicone you just pour it in and bled the brakes until the fluid comes out purple. Doug

    Brake Fluid

    Dot 3 , 4 and 5.1 are all compatible amd made of a semi clear brown gold oily looking fluid Dot 5 is a silicon material its not mixable with the others and visually a bright dense colour If you have 3 ,4 or 5.1 then a flush through with new fluid is fine, use dot 4 is standard just pump till new clear appears in your carch bottle when bleeding have a long tube and have the catch bottle up higher than the wheels , this stops air running back in the nipple threads Theres some good clues on https://www.buckeyetriumphs.org/brakes But i cant open it on my tablet thingy.

    Suspension setting

    i did say you can work back we did in the factory as the vans needs a ton of weight blocks to sit on spacers to get the height , once bitten . unload and see what the result was to get it set on track in a suspended state needed 3/8 toe in on the tyre to get 1/16 laden they all said thats rubbish but it worked and solved early life tyre wear., and on checking toe on the rim or on the tyre , 3mm on rim is doubled on the tyre periphery where as parallel makes no difference triumph do not specifiy the diameter the toe is measured at !!! back to a simple like gunsons side slip gauge ( trakrite) tells you exactly whats going on between tread and road surface and at £45 from amazon its a winner ,

  6. He went to Loughborough university - so was three years I assume. I know he got some pieces he made back home on the bus - but he had to use a van to get the extendable 6 seater table and chairs back - still in use today. He did a teaching degree (or whatever it was called back then!)

  7. Watch it Richard! I've got a Jag. When I picked up the Jag I said to the man "You sure this is wood? It looks plastic!" He spluttered a bit, well a lot. The trouble is it's so shiny perfect it looks fake. Which is a problem you can make with dashboards, it should look like wood. Doug

  8. Hi there, Just a quick note / feedback having just received my TSSC membership pack and latest "Courier" magazine. Really impressed with the quality of the membership pack and all correspondence within. Very high quality and professional indeed. Over the years I've been a member of a number of motoring clubs relating to various marques and the TSSC product / service is up there with the very best. Thanks to Angie and all at the club HQ. Should anyone be pondering over joining the club, I'd thoroughly recommend it ! 👍 Regards. Dave.
