No grease nipples on the Tiger rack. It's filled with a heavy oil instead...
Does that mean it's supposed to be Maintenance free or can you top up the Oil?

Presumably by Heavy oil you mean Gearbox/Diff oil, EP80/90?

Re: RHD steering rack

Peter Thanks for the info. I believe the PO of my car did strip down, check and re-assemble the Rack on my car, I find the steering quite heavy and a bit notchy :( Are the original Racks supposed to be maintenance free, I can't see any grease nipple like on some contemporary 60's cars? My previous T...

Re: RHD steering rack

Yes, I suppose the majority of Tigers went to the States or other foreign countries and left hand drive, hope mine is in good condition? :shock:

Re: Standard air filter replacement filter element

Mines got a K&N Filter fitted in the original AC Filter Housing.

This was installed by the previous owner and I have no Idea if it is more efficient than a standard one, although K&N are a well known performance upgrade manufacturer?

Re: Tyre Pressures

Ok thanks, I don't suppose the original Tyre Pressures quoted when the car was new are any good now due to the radial tyres?

Just out of curiosity what were the specified pressures Front & Rear for the Tiger with Cross plies fitted?

Tyre Pressures

Hi All

I've done a quick search on this forum but can't find the answer.

I'm running 185/70 x 13" Tyre's with 6J Alloy wheels on my Tiger, what would be the recommended Tyre Pressures front and rear for normal everyday use?

Thanks
