  1. Hi Karl, If you do decide on a cam change at some point I can recommend this cam from Chris. I have it in a 2.0 and is a very nice motor, although recommended for 2.5's. https://www.chriswitor.com/proddetail.php?prod=CW3003EX
  2. Her's a decent looking car, I know it's an auto but there is also a j type box on ebay too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1969-Mk1-Triumph-2000-Automatic-mot-and-tax-exempt/303948817892?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l9372 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/triumph-gearbox-with-Laycock-J-type-overdrive/174719104132?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l9372
  3. I think I have one spare one left if anyone is interested.
  4. I think I may have a good spare if you get stuck. I definitely have one with the corner missing where the nut goes if anyone wants that for the cost of postage or free to pick up.
  5. Link to prefix numbers didn't work so here it is again, I hope. http://www.team.net/www/triumph/trprefix.html
  6. Found this article very informative. https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5c6dec53b10f25d4edf0b3f7/t/5d0195273ad9b100013f50c5/1560384809248/Reliable+Clutch.pdf

  8. MK prefix would be a later 2500 S or TC, which is the same as mine. have a look here for part number designations. Beware the input shaft is different between the TR box and saloon box and require different clutch drive/friction plate.
  9. Shunt resistors are a cheapish way but there is some good info here but as it is Wiki don't take everything as gospel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Current_sensing
  10. You could try to contact him through ebay, by using the "contact seller" option on one of his items for sale. Probably will not make any difference but it might be worth a try.
  11. After building up my nice 2.0L and my 2.5L motors I will have a lot of parts left over, early saloons and a domed piston GT6 mongrel motor, so thought I would build something up with whats available. A budget build, as much as is possible, to make a pile of stuff useful. I have the same outlook as yourself Nick in as much as improving stuff at minimal cost by using what's available. I don't think cheque book engineering would be much fun even if it were a possibility.
  12. I have a plan to put a skimmed MK2 head on a MK1 short motor at some point, be rude not to as I have the bits, should be good for revs and aftermarket manifolds/efi...
  13. two good books for you to read.http://www.wolfitt.com/
  14. That's not that much more than a T9 conversion. Perhaps not within everyone's budget but there will be many who would not hesitate at the cost. I have always had to do my projects on very tight budgets and I get great satisfaction achieving my improvements at a fraction of the cost of off the shelf solutions. Saving the money allows me to do more improvements or to shell out for the items not available for a "bargain" at the right time, they turn up a few days after you have made the "painful" purchase.
