  1. Had one off the ratchet straps around the chassis and through the rear windows so only way it was falling off was to take the roof with it. An interesting drive. Regards Paul.
  2. Agree about 70KG definitely less than 100KG, once carried a Vitesse chassis about 300miles on roof bars fitted to a Triumph 1500FWD. Regards Paul.
  3. If overdrive fitted quite a bit of oil will remain so a couple of drains not a bad idea. Had a couple of teeth break off third gear on the cluster, held by magnetic drain plug untill I got home. Needed replacement cluster and third gear only. Regards Paul
  4. Early 2L Mk1 HC179E. Regards Paul.
  5. Thought I read somewhere that aluminium wheels need a different torque setting to steel. Or am I just dreaming. Regards Paul.
  6. I have an early and late 2L Mk1 engine, the early shares a lot of features with the 1600, the early engine has an adaptor for the oil pressure switch the later engine does not. This is not a T piece used to connect a switch and gauge. Regards Paul
  7. Also been looking as it involves a 400 mile plus round trip so weather dependent so did not want to prebook. Midnight tonight is cut off for prebook, saving £5.00 for the Sunday, and paperwork sent out two weeks before event according to website. Perhaps just Duxford this year as well under half the distance. Regards Paul.
  8. From old black loose leaf PM. Regards Paul
  9. Had to look up the launch date, now sitting here feeling old and depressed. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Regards Paul.
  10. Just a quick question, if I use the mini flanged cylinder head nuts, Vitesse 2L Mk1 engine, I do not need washers under them. Is this correct?. Thanks in anticipation. Regards Paul.
  11. Picture from when I stripped solenoid to replace o rings, important ones are on shuttle, five in total sizes on buckeye triumph. Be careful when removing circlip, best down in plastic bag in case it tries to escape. Regards Paul.
  12. Is this the thread?. Regards Paul Regards
  13. Have you looked at the Securon site?. http://www.securon.co.uk/seatbelts_layouts.htm Regards Paul.
  14. The cap on my Vitesse has a slot cut in the seal retainer, I always assumed this was how the tank vented. Regards Paul.
