  2. I recently had to revisit one of my CV shafts endfloat setting - don't ask ! I wanted to avoid taking the whole shaft off the car, as that involves slackening the transverse spring to let the inner end of the shaft pass the spring leave clamp bolt and then crawling underneath again to disconnect the driveshaft at the diff. I needed to change the 'distance' piece (spacer). Of course it's buried inside the inner bearing race when in situ. So I ordered 10x small neodymium magnets for £10.00 sellotaped them together and managed to 'fish' it out. See pic. Gav

    That's what they called the mk2 in USA It's all here in Wikipedia, so it must be true! Triumph GT6 - Wikipedia Of course your chassis and engine may not be a pair? Doug

    I suspect that is just the chassis number. Do a google search, and I found a USA enquiry with a chassis number similar to yours for a GT6. But as above, no records kept anywhere for them. The identity is entirely tied to the commission number (often wrongly referred to as the chassis number) So take it for what it is, a rotoflex rolling chassis with a US engine (can be sorted to similar specification to UK unless one of the heads with the odd port spacing). You need a tub etc, so you just need to find one with an identity (obviously with a chassis, even if that is just some rusty bits of metal, to keep it all legitimate) otherwise you will be looking at the difficult/arduous task of registering a "built up classic" which is best avoided.

    Ian, From this: Triumph Spitfire and GT6 Engine Numbers Engine number prefix KD i is from a GT6 mk1 or 2. Compression ratio 9.25:1 And from this: GT6 Commission Numbers – Triumph Owners Club Christchurch (triumphclub.co.nz) KD was used exclusively on the GT6 plus in the USA, so an import. Do you have a V5? You can apply for a Heritage Certificate and get a lot of info. Doug

  9. No point, they are only legit for another 8 days. Bin it and buy a UK one. From https://www.gov.uk/displaying-number-plates/flags-symbols-and-identifiers On or after 28 September 2021 You will need to display a UK sticker clearly on the rear of your vehicle if your number plate has any of the following: a GB identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack) a Euro symbol a national flag of England, Scotland or Wales numbers and letters only - no flag or identifier If your number plate includes the UK identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack), you do not need a UK sticker. If you’re in Spain, Cyprus or Malta, you must display a UK sticker no matter what is on your number plate. If you have a GB sticker, cover or remove it.

  12. Back in the early 90s I had a Rover 213s, the Honda-engine version, and it was a great car, but I suspected the brakes were sticking. One night on the way to work I decided to lift the brake pedal up with my left foot to see if this released anything. Unfortunately I hit the pedal with my left foot whilst getting it in under, the nose of the car dipped, I panicked and put my feet on clutch and brake, except it was one pedal too far over and so was brake and accelerator. I'm standing on both brake and accelerator, the clutch is still out and the engine is fighting the brakes. I've no idea of what damage it did to the car but the damage to my nerves stayed with me for some time.

    Joke

    A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week so the magician did the same tricks over and over again. There was only one problem. The magician had a parrot in the act and the parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once the parrot understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show, "Look, it’s not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table!” or "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?” The magician was furious but couldn't do anything. In fact, the act became a comedy act and the magician was in demand on every cruise ship. Then one stormy night on the Pacific, the ship unfortunately sank, drowning almost all who were on board. The magician, luckily, found himself on a piece of wood floating in the middle of the sea and , as fate would have it ... with the parrot. They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day... and then 2 days. and then 3 days. Finally, on the 4th day, the parrot could not hold back any longer and said... "OK, I give up. Where's the f*ckin' ship? "

  14. Thanks Pete. I suppose a lot of club members may buy from the usual suspects and get non original parts unwittingly and then end up it costing a fortune replacing them again in short order. Especially painful (financially at least!) if paying someone else to do it! Bob
