    Re: Wheel bearings

    The front bearing kit (inner, outer & seal) is GHK1004 and is common to the Triumph TR7.
    Same is true for the rear bearing kit, GHK1030, which is used in the TR7 4-speed models.

    Re: stiff gearbox

    I believe BGH used to recommend Comma semi-synth GL4 SX75W-90...might be worth giving them a call to check latest thinking..? Here's a link to an article about the T9 & BGH...oil advice is on the...

    Re: Roadster hood

    It was a long time ago, but IIRC I fitted the Lift-the-Dots to the rear tub & base of the hood (find the middle & work outwards), then stretched the hood forward over the cant-rail...using contact...

    I recently fitted a set of ETB instruments...I used a Revotec electronic adaptor for the Type 9 to drive the speedo, which seems to work well...bit of a tight fit in the Roadster tunnel...

  14. Re: Mudguards brackets bolts and rattles

    Had a similar problem with mine, with cracking around the bolts.
    I opted to try the 7-esque approach & use windscreen sealant to bond the wing directly to the brackets...so far, on the one wing I've...

    Does not the box section of the A post merge into the solid screen surround...so it might depend on how low you mounted the mirrors..?

    Re: Luggage rack for Marlin Roadster

    I used to use old Cosmic locking wheel nuts to secure the spare...omit the sleeves & lock barrels and you can bolt down through the rack into the exposed threads.
