Re: RHD steering rack

Only 812 Tigers were built for the UK! The USA took 5109 of them while Canada imported 572 TIgers. Europe (exlusive the UK) imported 356 Tigers and the rest of the world imported 218 TIgers. In this last 218 Tiger are included some RHD examples. It is safe to asume that max about 900 RHD Tigers are ...

Re: Cats Whiskers

The essence of my remark is that the text in CW is talking about Europe while it concerns a part of Europe. The mainland Europe isn't precise either because Britain is not the only island that is part of Europe. I write this with a smile because I have seen it over and over again that a lot of Brits...

Re: Cats Whiskers

Today I received Cats Whiskers issue 105 and as always it was a pleasure reading it. But there is one little error on page 45 which I like to correct. The Panhard PL 17 Tigre is mentioned as the reason why Rootes had to sell the Tiger as Alpine 260 in Europe,but at the same time there is mentioned a...

Hi Graham,

Thank you very much for your prompt answer!
Indeed I seem to have missed the information about the printer messing up with the posting to overseas members.
Thanks again for informing me!

Best regards,

Hi Martin, I am glad that I could help. And no I haven't been able to locate the spring, but with the information you supplied I am going to test my luck again in the Netherlands. We have here several suppliers of Mustang parts and from one of them I have bought in the past parts for my Tiger. So I ...

Hi Martin, as promised I inform you that I have been able to track a drain tap here in the Netherlands at Rootes Parts Service which costed me, including posting, 8 Euros. In your case you can buy this tap closer to home from Alpine West Midlands. They sell both the earlier and the later type. The t...

Thanks Mal, I had already this option in mind, but it is very frustrating to take out the radiator while a simple replacement of the tap should be a possibility. But thanks anyway for your advice!

In the meantime I found out that drain taps for all Alpines (series I up to and including series V) are the same for Tigers up to and including chassisnumber B382001894. I just got a mail from Sunbeam Spares Company that they only supply Silicone bottom hoses for RHD Tigers. For LHD Tigers they only...

Hi Martin, Thanks for your reply and thanks for your suggestion, so I will do as you advise and contact the forum of CAT.

Hi bigbob, I guess you don't have the answers on my questions? I am not a member of Facebook and I will keep it that way. Besides the information disappears after some time and will be to no benefit of other Tiger owners. So in my opinion Facebook isn't something good for the Tiger community. Well i...
