Re: wiring loom recommendation?

Dave I purchased a standard Wiring loom off Autosparks for a Triumph I restored in 2002, I was impressed with the quality and I fitted it without any issues? It looks like Autosparks do a number of options and I'm sure they will be able to make you a custom made Loom with additional Fuses and relays...

Yes Gary... fully on!
Ok great, thanks for confirming Graham.

I will get the date added to my diary?

Hopefully some sort of normality to the Classic car show scene this year, I've pencilled in the Sunbeam Spares day on the 1st of May as well :D

Re: callipers

If you have the original Girling 16P Calipers fitted the thread should be 3/8" UNF for the Bleed Nipple and Pipe inlet This is a link from a Triumph Website regarding the 16P Calipers (Thread sizes should be the same for all UK supplied Cars I believe?) https://forum.tssc.org.uk/applications/core/in...

Re: Brads Tiger

Brad

You may find when you use the car and have done a few hundred miles the suspension will settle

How much uprated are your springs?

Re: Wheel sizes

I have 6" wide rims 13" Diameter on my Car with 185/70 Tyres with no issues, the off-set is the important thing but I would guess 8" wide would be marginal. The Tyre Selector for 8" Wide rims suggest 225 or 235 is ideal with 215 the minimum which will safely fit, you don't say what diameter the Rims...

Winter Maintenance plans

Just wondered how's everyone doing in the Sunbeam Tiger World?

My car is tucked up in a nice warm garage under it's cover, plans over the winter holiday period are adjustment/re-greasing of the front wheel bearings and an Oil/Filter change.

Anyone got anything planned for their cars?

Re: hard Top rear window

Hi Gary, No I didn't. I got a price from Sunbeam spares at £250 ish plus packaging which seems expensive. I ended up fitting a flat acrylic one, although not perfect on the corners, does the job as I don't often use the car in the winter and not purposely when wet! Regards Rich Yes, I had a similar...
