    Nuts and Bolts

    With Namrick closed due to Covid 19 I browsed for another supplier of nuts and bolts for another project. I hadn't heard of www.Accu.co.uk before but found their website easy to use, comprehensive and clear, great range. Very quick despatch and the best packaging and labelling I've seen. Nylocs supplied are the blue liner too.

  3. The good thing is that it can't do it any harm. I think you have enough to do at the moment as well. Tony.

  5. when you get it stripped out let us know ,if the middle pivot has the rubbery bush its a light squeeze fit in the rod , all shim washers go between fork ends and bushes none on the outside the hardest is if the main spherical ball needs replacing is getting the tight circlip off the stick its a bit of a sod this holds the reverse push down spring there is no end of clip to ping off , just lots of faf with small screwdrivers and pliers and elastoplast pete

  7. Top notch rattle canning there! And yes, that bit of the linkage will have been causing big problems but the rest of it looks well worn and the grey spherical bit is on the verge of failing completely. Definitely a good time to re-bush it all.

  8. That's an excellent job - well done! Those loose linkages won't have helped the gearshift so you'll find a massive improvement once the kit is fitted. Remember that the bolt points downwards with the nut on the bottom; I have in the past inadvertently fitted it back to front then had to dismantle again.

  10. Lovely day for rattle canning! The remote is off too. Much easier in Neutral. I think i've found the problem. See video. 290E068A-7310-4653-B284-53E4938F3D1F.mov 290E068A-7310-4653-B284-53E4938F3D1F.mov

  12. I agree, since changing the exhaust it sounds better, accelerates better is more responsive and I think I am getting an extra 5 miles to the gallon. All in all well worth the expense, in fact I will probably saved myself money, nearly enough for my new wheels!!!! Happy lockdown to all Bob

  13. And never forget the well known fact that spending money and changing parts on a car always seems to change the way the car runs no matter what you do😉

  14. The bolt at the bottom of the gear lever if fitted the wrong way around can cause problems selecting reverse. Regards Paul

  15. I knew it would be my fault. agree the WSM doesn't say support but without measuring the travel and cable angles etc its simple principles that dictate anything is best in a running condition theres no doubt full droop or at running does affect the cable length the underfloor compensator angle is very important at 15Deg ie it pulls from 5 oclock to 7 oclock so the lever advantage is at its maximum if is set to go from 6 - 8 you loose a lot of mechanical advantage at the horseshoe.

  16. does seem strange, I wouldnt have thought the axle movement would make a lot of difference as they pivot on a point not far from the handbrake cable guide. This is probably by design as Triumph wouldnt have wanted brake operation due to suspension movement...
