I've had a similar problem in the past. It was simply the rods getting all tangled up. They needed aligning correctly, but a short term fix was a 5/8 ring spanner at side of box to persuade the linkage to free. 8) Sorry to be picky Tony but its is a 9/16 ring spanner.! Easy when you know how, but v...

Re: Stuck in forward gear

Hi Dave, have been driving for a couple of weeks but noticed gearstick was sticking as it came out of reverse, will look at linkage later. It looks like it is stuck in top gear.

I have been told on good authority that when fitting an Aluminium Radiator , rubber bushes should be used on the supports. They are quite fragile. Speak to Jim Oven.

T50 Ethanol in petrol

Just a point about the fuel in France. The petrol has 10 per cent Ethanol (E10) in France 5 per cent more than here. Do you think this will cause problems and is there anyway we can overcome this?

Thanks

Master cylinder

Hi Martin, speak to Dave (Red Baron) about a place in Suffolk that replaces the centre with Stainless Steel. Other than that try Sunbeam spares

Ethanol in fuel

Having a fuel filter is a must these days as the Ethanol in the Petrol is taking small flakes from the fuel tanks and into the fuel lines. Has anyone fitted one before the Fuel Pump? I take it you would need a Stop Cock fitted as well to clean it out?

2nd exhaust box

Has anyone fitted a 2nd exhaust box at the rear of their Tiger. If so where did you get it from? Just thinking it might be a bit quieter on the way to Monte.

Thanks Rob
