Easiest way is to follow the battery cables. if the Negitave (-) goes to the engine block , frame or body, that is a negitive gorund system. If the Positive (+) does, it is a Positive ground system.

Follow your negative battery cable. if it goes to ground, you have negative ground. If it goes to the starter or anywhere else, it's positive ground.

Fh41825he engine number what cc


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).

Hi, i have a triumph spitfire 4 1963 have recently converted it from pos ground to neg ground ,fitted alternator new plugs points condenser ,coil, car runs for aprox 3 miles then splutters to a halt ,after...


It sounds like you have to fit a ballast resistor in the power supply to the coil or get a 12 volt coil. Later spits (-ve earth) used a 9 volt coil with a resistor to drop the battery volts down when running, when starting the full volts are used but the starter will drop this to 9 or 10 anyway, this helped cold starts.)

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.
