just bought this on the bay litererally 20 mins ago
aparently the clutch system was empty and he filled it up and it doesnt work so he figures a slave or master cylinder small bit of welding in passenger footwell then I hope its going for a test with any luck this will be at the gathering as the engine for my avenger seems to have fallen through tight squedual but I love a rush job
fetched her today the car is as i expected a few more problems than i thought but overall very solid so far i can see the boot floor is gona need some plates, the rear of the exhaust is rotten there is a nasty bit of rust under the windscreen not a hole but its screen out to repair it and the fuel pipe turned into a sprinkler a moment after i started it but like i say I'm happy with it scabby but solid
that brown paint has got to go though yyeeeeuuccchh
haha man love the title of this thread caught my attention right away its got a lot to answer for!cant get much more retro than a lovely brown triumph look forward to seeing its progress what do you have in mind if i may ask ? cheers paul

yes you may. i need a daily drive so this is it if it likes it or not so plan is get a test on it and then tidy as we go,
as for the end product I'm thinking nice set of alloys, sprint quad headlamps , and daytona yellow with possible black stripes anything but that brown!!!!!!
right had a bit of a go round the dolly tonight started in the engine bay with the split fuel pipe quickly found the culprite
could have been nasty also noticed the battery was a bit close to the alternator a bit very close
anyway sorted those out and fired her up, started ok but all was not well if you rev it it knocks a lot so i think after a short nosey on the forums probably picked up on one of the big ends, so much for my engine that doesnt need any work as i was happily tell ing everyone, hey ho not a big job by the sound of it so on with inspecting the shell.
first up was that nasty bit by the windscreen
looked nasty but i bit the bullet and got out the trusty flat blade and surprisingly no hole!
so bit of a result there however not such a nice bit on the pillar behind that
thats gona want a plate on it (very awkward spot too.
bit puzzled by these on the parcell shelf four of them not sure what for?
anyone got any ideas
did have a bit of a poke around some of the other scabs but found no holes mostly surface even those crusty wheel arches didnt hide any nastys so I'm still upbeat even if i do have some engine fetling to do,
