Hi everyone, Is anyone able to identify this noise? I have had a local mecanic have a look at my car and he put a camera down the spark plug chamber and noticed a few marks on pistons 1 and 2 on the bore. He seems to think it could be Piston Slap. So when the car is cold and idling, it sounds quite loud (as shown in the video). Once warmed up, the sound at idle goes. However, when driving and putting load on the engine the noise comes back. Everytime when putting on load. I'm not a mechanic and my skills are limited to servicing and hope someone on this forum is able to help me in any way. Also, if anyone knows a good mechanic for these classic cars in Essex/Herts area, would be very grateful. Thanks Kev VID_20210712_094930.mp4
Great video from Facebook showing the Triumph Herald Production Line I like the paint spray line where nobody is choosing to wear a mask I noted 2 reg plates WRW 404 & 7023 HP but no information on Gov Mot site so must have gone to rust heaven Paul
I bought my Herald back in July, and to all intents and purposes it appeared sound, with the just to be expected rust in the lower passenger door and adjacent rear wing corner. Having driven the car a few times the heater appeared to be jammed on so I thought I would start the restoration with the heater assembly, which was duly removed. This revealed a heater plenum chamber full of crud which had obviously trapped a lot of moisture over time, with the effect below. And in close up. This is the passenger side, the driver's side has some corrosion, but not as much. And again in close up. The rest of the bulk head is solid, so I'm loath to have to replace the entire bulkhead assembly. Assuming it is repairable, can anyone recommend a good body shop in the Banbury area. Karl
