Triumph Dolomite Sprint Restoration Update

Thursday, May 28th, 2020

This is the last piece of my Resto jigsaw – the under dash shelf. Had to remake a new one to personal specification that includes front speakers and an oil pressure gauge.

And now fully installed . . .

Ian Burman’s new Toy!  A very nice companion for his TR5 . . .

Time to do a little maintenance on the TR8

Tuesday, April 21st, 2020

The fuel sender unit will not read Full when filling the tank.  Need to check the sender unit with the tank empty.

To remove the tank with room to work, the rear axle was removed.

When the fuel pump had been flooding the Carburettors, I fitted an external pump with the plan of fitting an original in-tank pump when I could source one.

Dolomite Sprint Project Update

Friday, April 10th, 2020

Okay, lead by example they say!

With a bit more time at home lately, my isolation in the shed has meant my Dolly Sprint is almost finished!

The engine bay has come up a treat, and is now a goer with the new cam run in and then the mandatory check for leaks . . . None! Amazing, and everything works as it should! A few final bits to finish off and we will be set for a road test.

Here’s a shot of the engine bay . . .

Now, over to you! How about sharing something about YOUR Triumph?


Stag Sold!

Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

For all of you who may have admired / criticised my Stag, I am pleased / saddened to advise that it has been sold to an enthusiast who could see it for what it is . . . a fine example of the model with all the patina of its 44 years since production, but a solid car underneath and with the benefit of its new interior, soft top, and many other enhancements. So, to those who admired it for what is was, thanks, and for those who poo pooed it . . . well, understood. Will there be another Stag in my garage in the future? We’ll see . . .
