  1. The Courier finally arrived to this remote little island today! Great work Pete! The more users we can attract the better, this forum is definitely one of the best benefits with TSSC membership.
  2. I drove from The Åland Island to the south of Sweden (Kristianstad) to collect a 2000 Saloon engine, then to Gothenburg fore another engine and back to the ferry which took me back to Mariehamn. 900 miles or 1400 km including 2,5 hours with a ferry...
  3. I think I found a reason for my confusion! There are 7 pipes to connect so no matter how I do it one will be left... It turned out that the cylinder head on my old Vitesse HC engine is different. There is a water pipe on the cylinder head on the Mk I Saloon engine but the HC engine has a blanking plug in that place. I guess I will just put a plug where there is a pipe, then I have 6 pipes to connect which should be doable with 3 hoses... Anyone who knows why this is different on Vitesse HC engines and Saloon Mk I engines? (Picture from HC engine). BR Roger
  4. Thanks a lot Paul, that was just what I was looking for, at least the matrix hoses are clear on that picture! I don't know if it was Firefox or if you have spent a lot of time in Sweden, but the answer in Swedish was appreciated 🙂
  5. Progress has been slow on my Vitesse project but I have finally reached a point where I soon can try to start up my “new” engine for the first time. I usually take a lot of pictures before I take anything apart, but unfortunately I have no pictures of where the water hoses goes. I searched for pictures in WSM and by Google “Vitesse engine” but haven’t found a picture yet that shows which hose goes where. Do anyone here have a picture (or can explain) which hose goes where? There are too many of them! I could bypass the heater matrix for the moment, but I don’t want to stop or restrict the water flow in the engine in any way, so even that became a too complicated task for my brain. Thanks in advance! /Roger. Edit: I forgot to mention: The engine is from a Mk I 2000 Saloon, inlet manifold is from original Vitesse HC engine. I don't know if the 2000 Saloon had any different system for heater matrix.

    It will take a long time until the latest issue of the Courier reach The Åland Island so I tried without success to download it from the website (despite logged in as a member). But I noticed the latest number is 666 so I suspect that this is related to April the first...
  7. Cats are very vulnerable when they are upside down with their belly exposed to any possible enemy so it’s a good sign to see them in that position. Then you know for sure that they are in a good home feeling purfectly safe and relaxed. The picture doesn’t tell, but Nisse was snoring very loud when I found him on my desk. Never had a cat snoring that loud before. Priceless! Sixten lived for many years in a house with drug addicts and they did not treat him well. He was extremely scared and afraid of everything when we got him. It took two years before he trusted us, but now he is also upside down in the chair. I try (without success) to keep them away from my garage since they get oil on their paws and there are many sharp items on the floor.
  8. Interesting thread! The white / grey one is Nisse as I found him on my desk this morning. A bit difficult to concentrate on work... The black one is Sixten which we rescued a few years ago. I attend a lot of Zoom meetings in my work and they are both a bit famous now within the company I work for. They often attend the meetings.
  9. The Norwegian language is very similar to Swedish so we can communicate to some extent using Swedish & Norwegian. They seem to do a lot with their Triumphs! Norsk Triumph Klubb
  10. Thanks for your reports in the Courier John, interesting to read. Unfortunately I have no updates or photos to share at the moment. There are many Triumph clubs abroad, most of them very small compared to TSSC. A report about some of these clubs might be a subject in the future? Just a thought. The club "nearest" to me is Triumph Club of Sweden Im not active in TCS but I guess most countries in Europe has at least one small Triumph Club and there are several in the US.
  11. I have not tried to fit the large gearbox to the MB engine (yet) so don't know if that works.
  12. Its difficult to show the difference between HC flywheel and MB on a picture, but also the clutch from the MB engine seems to be needed.
