Re: gear knob

I was planning to fit a new gaiter. I understand that it can be fitted with the T bar still in place by warming it in hot water and a bit of lubrication. The old one can be just cut off.

gear knob

I need to fit a new rubber gaiter to my gear lever. The knob has unscrewed with no problem but the chrome part below the knob seems really tight. Is there a recommended way to unscrew this ?

radiator

My original Tiger radiator now needs either repairing or replacing. Radtec seems to offer a good replacement. Has anyone any experience of their product? ie is it a perfect fit?

instruments

Recently on the U.S. TV show Fantomworks, a Tiger owner brought his car in and asked for the instruments to be changed to original Smiths gauges. I thought all Tigers were fitted with Jaeger gauges, or were export Tiger different and indeed fitted with Smiths gauges for the U.S. market.

Re: temp sender

Thanks Gary. I thought of connecting the lead to earth to test the gauge, but the workshop manual advises against this saying that the gauge windings may burn out. Have you tried this yourself ?
