Try Jim Oven or Stuart Wilkinson. Jim supplied my kit. Works a treat. You need to supply an Alpine steering column. jim.oven@jo-engineeringltd.co.uk

That should work ok. I'd check thermostat. or water pump. Also sender can read wrong. Try infra red temp probe to double check.

I sold my old 260 to a local man who has totally rebuilt it & upgraded it to about 250-300 bhp. Last time I heard he was hoping to sell it. Don't know price, but wont be cheap.

I'd be very interested as well. Ignore the bandits, how much do you want?

Welcome to the Club. I used an ex-TVR Cosworth T5 gearbox. Advantage of TVR version is that gear stick is same distance as original Tiger [but central]
A few years ago they were about £350-400.
Dave's done good work on my car. Worth a visit.

Hope your neighbours are more understanding than mine. I had to change from cherry bombs, which to me sounded great. But to them they were a public nuisance & I had to change them.

I thought 289 heads fitted a 260. I used to have Hi Po 298 heads on my 260.
But best get confirmation from an expert.
