fuel pump fuse

I have a intermittant fault in that the fuel pump sometimes does not run. I am fairly sure it is a relay base fault as taking the two relays out and putting them back in gets the pump running again. I will take the bases out and have a look at them when time permits but at rhe same time would like ...

Trunionless front supension

That's been discussed several times in the past - essentially it's the wrong Triumph suspension for our cars (the shape of the upright is a give-away). It's the "small Triumph" setup, as used on, e.g. Herald and Spitfire, not the "large Triumph" one used on TR6 and Scimitar. So rather underspecifie...

Trunionless front supension

I'm considering subject kit from Canley:- https://www.canleyclassics.com/suspension-steering-and-brakes/trunnionless-front-suspension-kit. Firstly, I'm aware there have been several stub axle variants in Scimitars but, have all uprights been consistent over the years in respect of the upright stub a...

Wiper wheelbox spindle length?

Can anyone out there give dimension length of Se6 wheelbox spindle, from forward face of the wheelbox housing to end of spindle splines (the amount spindle sticks out the box).
I assumed Se6 and Middlebridge be same but supplier is casting doubts.

Yes, that's right, access is granted by Phil as a manual process once you've entered your details ( see this thread for more details ). It normally happens quite quickly. Worth noting that it doesn't just give you access to the Wiki, it also gives you access to the entire back-catalogue of archived...

Wiki

Been a member for some time and only just realised I that to get into WIKI I must enter my membership number in my profile (it doesn't happen automatically).
Anyway, no problem, I've now entered my number and assume access will eventually be granted without further input from me. Yes?

That’s the aim of the wiki (for members only I’m afraid) - it just takes time to collate the info into one place.
More power to your elbow!

Wiper wheelboxes

That’s the one I was thinking of - has some 6 details such as part numbers and number of teeth each side. I think any FAQ thread on wheelboxes should include the motors, fittings, tubes, etc as one “Wiper system” FAQ. Entirely agree. If as much info as possible on any single topic or system were pu...

Wiper wheelboxes

A good number of answers to those questions will be in the parts manuals or on this site. I’ll try and find time next week to pull them all together into one FAQ thread. Hi Jim. This idiot has just found:- https://scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/viewtopic.php?t=4946&start=15 which goes a long way to many a...

Wiper wheelboxes

Duff wheelbox, drivers side, must replace. Will do both at same time. For future reference shall be pleased to know:- 1) Are wheelboxes same for 5's, 6's and Middlebridge? 2) Are they same passenger side and driver side? 3) Are front and rear boxes same? 4) Do we have part numbers (Lucas, BMC, Relia...

Good make of clutch for 2.9efi

So many horror stories about poor quality clutch kits nowadays. I hear only LUK and Valeo spoken of with high regard but both these manufacturers no longer list a clutch kit for 2.9efi.
Suggestions or comments please.

I thought stiff gear selection was due to the grade of oil
I suppose stiff shifting or difficulty engaging correct gears can be caused by many things. I can only relate my own experience.

Middlebridge gear lever

but I could see no signs of such modification on the one removed from MB50 This may be a daft question, but what was actually wrong with the original one? Not a daft question at all. I was having difficulty selecting 1st and 2nd gears. I suspected either too much wear at lever fork end or too much ...

Warning! 25A switch won't handle 18A for long.

Like I said here is no indication of what the rad fan fuse value should be - only the two relays. Thanks Peter. I traced wiring to F17 (cockpit, nearside, front bulkhead) and found 25A fuse, functional but showing signs of distress. Of course, I've no idea if 25A is original spec'n or if someone ov...
