    • Hi, I'll probably be there again this year. You can buy tickets on site the day of the race and they have a special parking for classic cars on the other side of the new paddocks. JC
    • The booking of the hotels / B&B's must have been a nightmare, and how did you manage the underground parking  as well. I think you had a fantastic trip, and only one litre of oil for 2200 miles i reckon thats brilliant, thanks for sharing it all 
    • Hello All                This is a round up of our trip. We sailed from Portsmouth to Bilbao Drove to San Sebastian 2 nights Pamplona 2 nights Oloron Sainte Marie France 1 night Jaca 1 night Vielha 1 night Andorra 1 night Seix 1 night (back in France) Antichan De Fronigns 1 night Sarrancolin 1 night St Pastous 1 night Angouleme 2 nights self catering Sainte Verge 1 night Classic Le Mans 4 nights camping! St Nazaire 2 nights self catering Huelgoat 2 nights self catering 2200 miles covered plus ferries! We did  17 ( I think!) Mountain passes the highest just under 7000 feet Erro 801 m Mezkiritz 922 m Ibaneta 1057 m Puerto De Somport 1640 Fadas 1470 m Port De Labonaigua 2072 m    El Canto 1720 m Port De lers 1517 m Col De Agnes 1570 m Col de Latrape 1110 m Col de la core 1365 m Col de port de Aspet 1069 m Col de Mente 1349 m Col du Portillon 1293 m Col De Peyresourde 1563 Col De Aspi 1490 m Col Du Tourmalet 2115 m Spitty ran ok just a bit hot and a bit lean at tops used just over 1 lt of oil? & 36 to 37 mpg!

    • Yeah, something must have jammed, but I can't see what. As I reassemble I'll make sure everything is as it should be. 
    • Hmm, unusual failure....... Check everything else is free-running before renewing so you don't "do" another....... Nick
    • Binny's speedo packed in the other day... odo and speedo not working, so it's not the gauge.  I tried replacing the cable, but still no joy. On removing the drive pinion the "fault" is very obvious!   219002A is the pinion part, 21 tooth.... seems to be pretty much unobtainium from all the usual and unusual suspects, but the splendid chaps of the Triumph Dolomite Club came through and I've managed to get a replacement. I already had a spare drive gear in the bits box from an old spitfire single rail box I stripped down.
    • thanks, I'll look for air leaks tomorrow, btw perfect explained  
    • I used to have a similar problem with the Vitesse, and also bad popping on over run. The cure was fixing the exhaust leaks. I now know ages before I hear anything if one of the exhaust joints is leaking because the over run popping starts increasing. Out of habit now I always turn off the fuel pump a few seconds before killing the ignition. I think the bang isn't so much that its rich but if you turn off the ignition the sparks stop, but the engine does a few more revolutions sucking in air fuel mixture that doesn't get burnt but rather gets pushed into the exhaust, if there is enough air in there (like via an exhaust leak) and its hot enough (your wrap will have made it hotter) then the un-burnt mixture goes BANG!

    • btw had a little meeting this morning at rotterdam airport, 22 showed up
    • of course "now" must be "know" but with 29 celsius in holland my brains are overheating and I have no heat wrap left over....
