SOURCE: suspension

swap your shockers see if it is then on the opposite side. I fyes replace your shockers if no rotate your leafspring as well but not before inspecting the rubber spacers. If they are squashed perished and or missing then replace with poly washers (do a search for this).

SOURCE: 1972 Triumph Spitfire, 3rd gear grinding

Jumping out of third was a common problem with the Spitfire quick changing up from forth gear would beat the syncro and chip the teeth on the drive dog then the bits would stop the syncro from engaging fully and it would jump out. If you replaced the syncro and the drive hub it may just be a bit stiff, the selector also wore quite quickly and misaligned the drive hub causing it to be hard to select.
I will scratch about in my very old manuals and see if I can find the spitfire gearbox manual, If I can I will post it.

SOURCE: I am having trouble with my 1969 Triumph Spitfire

Mine have done exactly the same. worked perfectly before but stopped doing so on the day it was booked in for MOT! Looking at the wring diagrams, it seems that the hazard light circuit is linked to the stop lamp circuit. I noticed my hazards have been playing up lately so there's the starting point.

If I sort it, I'll post the solution. Point of note - my brake lights have never worked with the ignition turned off, only when on. I've had five Triumphs - two 1500 Spits and three Sprints and they were the same regards this.

Where are the timing marks on a triumph herald 13/60


Timing marks on Triumphs are always (at least for the Herald-based cars-Herald, Vitesse, Spitfire & GT6) on the crankshaft pulley. There is a "pointer", a small triangle of sheet metal tack-welded to the timing chain cover, that acts as the reference point for your timing light.

The F series engines are from Triumph Spitfires. FH is a 1300cc engine (1296cc) from a Spitfire Mk4. I can't remember if it's a small crank journal engine like the Herald 13/60 GE engine (good) or a large crank (not as good).

How do i wire a smiths tachometer in a triumph spitfire 1500


easy... remove the mechanical tach and fit the light from the old one to the new eletric tach. Next run a wire from the back of the tach connection that looks like a small pole and run that to your ignition coil - negative side. Also make sure the ground wire (black) is mounted to one of the install bracket posts that hold the tach in place behind the dash.

On older model vehicles we start having lots of electricle issues. the current flow gets interupted and broken because ALL of our GROUND wires get corroded where they are screwed to the body or frame. it is important that these connections get sandpaper shiny cleaned and tightly screwed backin. solves many issues.
