Blackbelt Triumphero (6/13)



  1. Would it make that much difference? There are already 4 flexy hoses connecting the brake lines to the calipers and slave cylinders? Gully
  2. According to the Courier mag, the Club Shop is still posting to Europe - last time I looked they supplied Penrite and Castrol Classic. Gully
  3. I've always run NGK BP6ES in my GT6. Not tried the multi-electrode plugs yet. I did try Champion N9Y, but found the car didn't enjoy running on choke with them. Gully
  4. Fair enough - was looking for a solution to an odd problem, but looks like the issue should be solved using the smaller Canley nut, with the problem being caused by the original nut (and washer) being oversize. The Spalding site does recommend talking to them about performance requirements and specifications before ordering, which is sound advice and a good service. Gully
  5. They do thin form nuts which may be appropriate. Gully
  6. The other clanger to avoid is positioning your door mirror so you can't fully open the quarterlight! I must sit taller than the PO who fitted them and the additional tilt back on the mirror means the driver's quarterlight fouls it. Passenger side is mounted in dimensionally the same position on the door, but the quarterlight clears it. Gully
  7. Before I changed to CV shafts on my GT6 I bought a spare nyloc just in case I needed it after a job I was planning to do. It came from either Canley or Paddocks and was a much deeper nut than the original. If I'd used it, I don't believe the nylon section would have engaged with the thread sufficiently to lock it, which sounds as if it could be the issue you are encountering. My CV shafts with the original bearing design use a shaped nut that is peened into a channel to achieve locking. Gully
  8. I have one of those too - bought via Chic Doig's eBay shop around 5 years ago. Gully
  9. The specs look right to me, including the viscosity. Gully
  10. Given that the Spitfire in the same sale went for £19k plus premium, I'm not sure that's true! 😄 Gully
  11. Welcome back! Fingers crossed a few shows happen this year - seems there's an awful lot cancelled already. Gully
  12. Nothing like consistency! 😄 I'm intrigued by the reversal in pressures for the last models - have you ever tried the hard front, softer rear on your '73? Mine's a '70/'71 Mk 3, so even the WSM and owner's manual (extract below) don't align... Really is a case of going by feel! Gully
  13. My GT6 made its way down to Hampshire last week for it's Spring holiday - we've some building work starting at home this week, so needed the Triumph out of the way. It's now residing in my parents' garage. Had a good run down via the A505, M1, M25 and M3, before hopping off the motorway to cut down to Odiham, Alton and then through the Meon Valley to the coast. Around 120 miles and just under half a tank of fuel. I'll be visiting once a month until the building works are complete and the GT6 can return home! Gully
  14. Welcome to the forum. Great looking car - but them I'm biased... Gully
