Thanks RR. I sent him a message yesterday. Spitfire Graveyard has got back to me. He has some but the heater elements are not working. That is not a huge issue for me so at least I now know that I can source one. Next problem will be to have it shipped over. I also think that I may have discovered one in Dublin (waiting to hear back from a lad) which would be a lot handier if it was to materialise.
First meet of the year for the club, not many Triumphs in attendance as most people had gone soft and brought there moderns, a suspicious amount of which seemed to be made by Porsche.
The GT6 went well on its new engine, few niggles though, the interior light comes on dimly when you go over a bump, the doors are drafty with the rather fresh air coming in at the handles and door pulls? and the overdrive did its usual party trick of giving up.
Will have to check the OD oil level again but nothing on the garage floor when i drove out so suspect its pressure related and leaking at speed.
Picture of the GT at Corlay Chateau or whats left of it anyway.
Good advice Phil!
Years ago my then 8 year old and I started together at the top of a black run. She just crouched down and skied straight down the middle of the piste without turning! When I arrived, having zig zagged all the way down she looked pitifully at me and said "You think too much about this". Crushed.
Glad you are now hooked. I am off to the Spanish Pyrenees as a new destination in a week's time and trying to get myself to somewhere on the Sella Ronda in the Dolomites in March - a great location for mature skiers. Give it a look. Can thoroughly recommend Hotel Col Alto in Corvara but likely to be stuffed already.
Just whatever you do don't try and keep up with him, it seems the smaller the child the less fear they suffer, and are more than happy to launch themselves down slopes at breakneck speeds whilst we are still quivering like a jelly at the top lol!
Steve Morris...... in Tavistock, Devon. Somewhat elusive, but he usually has something on sale on Ebay. Failing to find anything right now though. In theory I have a number for him. In practice I have to coax it out of the sick remains of my old Nokia phone.....
