  1. Not sure if this has been moved but it may be worth running some fine emery or crocus paper between the points to just give them a clean. I used to do this "back in the day" after leaving my car standing for months whilst at sea.
  2. Those dash switches are not standard so you will needto trace the wires, good luck
  3. Sounds like an airlock to me, fill the system really slowly letting air escape as the water displaces it, then with the rad cap off run the engine until no more air bubbles are seen. Can be worth getting the front of the car higher so it encourages the air to vent and possibly loosening the top hose replacing it once water is running freely.
  4. Outrigger can be replaced with the body on, Southern Triumph Services are in Bournemouth only 30 miles from you and will be able to do this work. I have never used them but heard good things (NFI etc). http://www.southerntriumph.com/

    MOT

    Someone in the Derwent valley goup must know a "friendly" mot tester, this group are also very helpful in fact you may get inundated with advice
  6. You can try packing out the lower fixings with washers until the alignment is more acceptable, I am sure an expert will be along shortly
  7. A handful of cement powder can absorb oil stains but it may have been left too long. I would try it and leave it down for a week or so then clean with a paste made from bio washing powder and hot water rinse as post #4
  8. Doesn't look as if they do any Herald items. As far as I know they only supply complete bumper kits, front, rear or both. I do know they ask for original items as patterns to work from but this can be a drawn out process with the items going backwards and forwards until they get it right. May be worth a try getting in touch
  9. I have just fitted stainless steel bumpers to my Stag from Harrington. They look great and are an easy fit. I just had to use longer bolts on the rear bumper to accomodate the towbar. http://www.groupharrington.com/en/part/700/triumph-spitfire-mk3-gt6-mk2-bumpers.html
  10. I think most stag owners who have done this job fit them together as a unit. Using the same process as when removing the unit raise the back of the car as high as possible to reduce the angle required.

    New Forest Run

    Jezza, I'm going provided I get the car all sorted in time, busy at the moment reinstalling the interior having collected it from the bodyshop a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately I have a secret weapon (Doug) who has restored 2 and working on his third. There are lots of Stags making the run. You need to register beforehand in case anyone else is thinking of going. Provided the weather is fine it should be a good run.
