I’ve got an issue with the metal clips that secure both 3/16” brake & 5/16” fuel tubes to the chassis. They don’t suit the 3/16 tube! They are too small. Has anyone else experienced this? Is the only solution to use the plastic ones?
My rear nearside flexible is somewhat tight /different to o/s. Is this union correctly mounted? Should the fixing be the other side of the vertical port, giving more room for the flexible to operate in?
I've been looking at replacing my rear be a drums as I think they have warped but when looking i can only find drums for sale at over £50 each and that seems steep to me so I was wondering if anyone else has replaced theirs and if so where did they get theirs from and how much were they? I've found A pair of spitfire drums for £20 so surely gt6 drums can't be 5 times more expensive
Hi All, I am looking to get a replacement Brake Master cylinder for my triumph spitfire IV. When I bought the car it originally had a 0.75 inch bore diameter master cylinder fitted which worked very well and felt really nice to operate but unfortunately only had a small reservoir which was the same size as the clutch master cylinder which I wasn't happy with. Within the spares I got with the car there was a master cylinder which had a larger plastic reservoir (which I can see from restoration pictures I got with the car was the type fitted before it was restored) but only a bore diameter of 0.625 inches (standard spitfire IV size). I cleaned this up and fitted new seals to this master cylinder and fitted it to my spitfire. From then on I never found the brakes to be as responsive or as sharp as when I had the 0.75 master cylinder fitted. Now that the 0.625 master cylinder is leaking between the plastic reservoir and the ally main body I’m looking to get a replacement master cylinder but in 0.75 inch bore with the larger capacity reservoir. I've looked on the websites of all the usual suspects but they all seem to sell different ones and different GM part numbers (GM205, GM209, GM220, and GM224) but not all say the bore diameter size of them. Can anyone help locate the type of master cylinder I am looking for? I have attached a photo with both of the master cylinders Alex
