  1. Get on eBay and buy a used good brand adjustable. Probably similar price to a modern item but you just know the thing will be precise fit with little or no slop in the jaws. Or use it as an excuse for a rummage at an autojumble.
  2. That's on my GDrive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/mobile/folders/0B_CE2l4Osa3SMGIwOWI0MTgtZjQxOS00NDVmLTg4M2YtMjkyZTFkMjU4MDYz/1dLQHyjG3OCrhu1DeEVvn02aItqXhAA1q?sort=13&direction=a
  3. Do you mean the Spitfire MK3 emission control supplement? I am sure I have that somewhere.
  4. Annoyingly some sites hotlink to my content and even have the cheek to charge for it. My content is free.
  5. Here is a link to a late edition of the Triumph Herald 1200, 1250, Vitesse and Spitfire Workshop Manual that does include the Herald 13/60. https://app.box.com/s/9ite5u16tvc4u83b7fnndwyxtjqcqpjg An earlier edition is linked to from my website page: http://vitessesteve.co.uk/Servicemanuals. That could do with replacing as it a scan with pages out of order and missing later amendments.
  6. The Herald 13/60 is included in the later editions of the Triumph Herald 1200, 1250, Vitesse and Spitfire Workshop Manual. As far as I know the 13/60 was covered by extra material issued by way of amendments. The original document being in a paper multi page loose leaf ring binder format. I have never seen a separate factory Workshop Manual for the Herald 13/60. I will check which edition I have online.
  7. Many Triumph car dealers used to give away branded tax disc holders. I have included images of several tax discs holders in the blog posts about Triumph Car dealers I have written: https://vitessesteve.blogspot.com/search?q=tax+disc Some have been reproduced and come up for sale via eBay. If you know the garage who originally sold your car you maybe able to source a period current tax disc holder.
  8. There are other MAC compatible browsers. I used OPERA in the past. Have a look at: https://browserhow.com/best-browsers-mac/
  9. I understand not even Microsoft recommend Internet Explorer any more. Surely people who insist on using Microsoft browser can use Microsoft Edge instead. Out of date browser are potentially insure and leave users vulnerable in the same way as using other out of date software.
  10. This is from the early GT6 Parts Catalogue fiche version.
  11. I extracted from this edition as found on the Heritage CD.
  12. Pages from Triumph GT6 Spare Parts Catalogue.pdf Here are some pages from the Triumph GT6 Parts Catalogue for early cars.
  13. I had my Vitesse Strombergs refurbed by Burlem Services: http://zenithcarb.co.uk/. Knowledgeable telephone chaps and a rapid turnaround on the work after booking the carbs in.
  14. You might like to take a look at this old Triumph training. Originally a film strip that was scanned by Adrian Hebron to PDF. Converted to video format by me. The booklet about the subject is available from my website: http://vitessesteve.co.uk/ServiceTrainingNotes.
  15. As the video shows it was the Triumph Spitfire that ran at LeMans. It featured changes from the normal road car including a special reshaped body.
  16. Tony Lindsay Dean used to supply diffs. I think is now winding down. Have seen that he is selling off some stock
  17. Technically - electric car purchase is subject to car tax. They do currently pay lower or no VED + the benefit i kind charge is lower than petrol/diesel cars.
  18. Quoting from their website Robush became a UK distributor for Trelleborg™, Novibra™ and Metalastik™ in 2005. I seem to remember Trelleborg as a rotoflex source in the past. Think they are Swedish.
  19. Assuming you started the thread. Click on the 3 dots for the post edit functionality. The 3 dots appear to the top right of the post on Windows PC. If the thread has several posts you will need to go to the start.
  20. If you bought the wheels from a trader they should be able supply appropriate nuts. Alloy wheels often fasten using tapered washers or nuts rather than flat face nuts. A photo of the wheels showing the holes might help somebody identify the nuts needed.
  21. Try here lots of Triumph stickers: http://www.classicrepro.co.uk/Triumph.htm A business owned by real enthusiasts.
  22. More searching found it. HOLDINGS S&M LIMITED Company number 11443748 The Administrator appointment and notice of proposals tell the story: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/11443748/filing-history/MzI3MzMwNzY3OWFkaXF6a2N4/document?format=pdf&download=0
  23. S&M TRIUMPH RESTORATION LIMITED went to members voluntary liquidation 14/11/2018 according to companies house. This is old news see https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2018/11/0166/SM-Triumph-Restoration-Ltd-enters-liquidation The auction is said to be on behalf of an Administrator acting on holdings of S & M Ltd. I can not find either "Holdings of S & M Ltd" or "S & M Ltd" listed. So the business would appear to have failed again but not not sure what it name it was actually registered under.... S&M T6 TRIUMPH SPITFIRE LE MANS LTD is currently listed as an active company. However the T6 moulds are in the auction item 20.
  24. The auction is of S&M Ltd stuff according to the website listing.
