Does the relay click when you supply 12 vdc and ground from the battery with test leads? Will this cause the horn to blow? No: Check polarity of relay. Some are polarized with a small diode inside to

That's not unusual at all in relay design. Often you have a control set of voltages and current running the relay that is isolated from the current being run through the contacts. Low voltage powerin

I agree that this sounds like the differential to me. If the transmission is absolutely positively engaging, then the differential is the next culprit. Jack up the rear of the car with both rear whee

I'd be curious if you can turn the engine over by hand. Try grabbing the fan blade and turning the engine slightly with that. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the starter simply wasn't strong enou

Cleaning the head with lacquer thinner is a good start. Then paint the entire head (except gasket surfaces) with good quality engine paint meant for engines. NAPA's paint line is made by Martin Senou

I'm not aware that there *is* a footswitch for the highbeam dimmer in early Spits. I certainly haven't found any in the ones I've scrapped so far, but that might be just dumb luck. -- ** * * * Flinth

Gaining access to the slave cylinder is one of the few areas our Triumphs were pretty well designed. While you could technically get to it from under the car, it's more comfortable (and drier!) to do
