Coupe Heater valve

Aha, thanks David! Do you know, when I was looking to replace my Coupe heater valve a few months ago I searched pretty thoroughly on the forum here and online but couldn't find the correct-handed valve - only references to how they are NLA. My wife would tell me I had a man-look :) So I bought the r...

Coupe Heater valve

Do you mean this? IMGP4303.JPG If so, these are readily available but with the opposite orientation, as shown in the photo (LHS). For instance, here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRIUMPH-GT6-MkI-TR4-TR4A-TR5-TR6-HEATER-VALVE-TAP-565755-NEW/182288436255?hash=item2a713ccc1f:g:7o4AAOSwd0BVu205:rk:1:pf:0 ...

660XYB Engine fix

Glad you got it back in and mated with the gearbox with no problems Philip. From your description of getting them apart in the first place I feared it might be a royal PITA.

The rolling pin clearly worked a treat!

Coupe at the Coppa

Good luck Oli! Please let us know how you get on - and if you're ok with it I'd like to use your photos in Slice along with any write up. Is that ok? Many thanks :D I know other members who don't necessarily use this forum would love to hear how you get on and I can't think of any other Coupes out r...

Forum editing capabilities?????

I just click the 'Add files' button below the text box, select my photo then click 'place inline' and bingo. A quick Preview checks that all is ok and the photos are in the order you want them, and Submit. It takes seconds in my experience.

MOT exemption

I think if I was the owner of a nice, original, pre-1979 Morgan that I had declared MOT-exempt I'd be a bit concerned about that wording in the DfT letter. Assuming it's genuine, which it looks to be.

That’s interesting - I must have missed the bit about it no longer being in production to be VHI?
Agreed - that's new, surely?

Doesn't affect our cars - but there must be some out there. Early Caterham for example? Morgan? And what's the definition of "type"?

660XYB Engine fix

I think we get ours from gaskets for classics they do have a website 👍 Yep, good shout. I must have bought some when I did my engine rebuild but I'm darned if I can remember where, and it must have been easy or I'd have remembered it. Best guess is that Kev at ZMS supplied them with the Mays head g...

660XYB Engine fix

I've checked my notes from my engine rebuild and I can't find any reference to the exhaust gaskets I used. I've got all the receipts and there's no note of me buying any, which makes me think I used ones I already had. I don't recall making any up. They're obviously not the same as gaskets from the ...
