Re: 2020 Calendar

Eric, makes me think of fitting a snow plough to the front. I can just imagine it with a huge rooster tail of snow flying into the cockpit. Flying helmet and googles definitely needed!

Re: Petrol Pump Failure.

On my type 1 the SU pump is some 34 years old so probably should carry or install a Facet in parallel so pipes can be easily switched over. Takes hours to get a tow truck up in the mountains around here.
Carrying a spare distributer wont help if no petrol.

Re: Information 1000cc Triking with Ford gearbox etc

Not possible to remove the sump without lifting engine. Might be possible with an external oil filter. At least one T1 has been modified to make the cross member removable. Not possible to fit a sump extension. It is not such a big deal to lift the engine. I'm 67 and remove it from my T1 in under 30...

Re: Tall Triking Drivers

If left hand drive you get slightly more pedal room. Dropping the back of the seat base a couple of inches say 50mm through the floor is supposed to work well. Being 5'6" don't have a problem myself.

Less Depressed

Hi, Changed the head and base gaskets on both barrels as slight oil weeping. (1985 ish G% engine) The bores and heads are virtually unworn as they should be at only 11,000 km.
