    Discovered a nasty crack.. 1972 P6 2000TC

    Thank you all, I already contacted Johan for this and sent him the same pictures I did here, awaiting his response. Geoff from Wins International might have these reinforcement plates ? I’m going to the UK again in the first week of March and can collect them there, who knows. Wilfred

    Discovered a nasty crack.. 1972 P6 2000TC

    Good afternoon all, This afternoon I made a start with cleaning the surroundings, as it looks now it is definitely a corrosion issue, not an ideal situation when you also hit a curb (I believe that’s the English word for our “stoeprand”) This might have happened in the past after which the...

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Hello, I installed the yellow headlights finally, I think it’s suits the colour of the car and the fact that it’s an oldtimer. Have a nice evening, Wilfred

    Hi from Sweden.

    Hello, Welcome and greetings from The Netherlands. I’ve also got a 2000TC since last May, it’s a nice car to work on. Good luck with the welding, I thought that Sweden didn’t use salt on the roads ? Wilfred

    Replacement fuel cap lock P6

    Good evening, I’m busy with a rather small but useful repair, which is replacing the fuel cap lock. I was a bit hesitant to remove the fuel filler, as I created an open connection to the inside of the tank and I don’t like the smell of fuel in my garage. So, to be on the safe side I put the...

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Good evening, I haven’t had time yet to properly install the yellow lights, I’m afraid. My other oldtimer needs some serious attention to get it past the MOT. Not dramatic but the rules are much stricter now. Also, I’m in the UK this week to visit a motor car company in Crewe Which is nice...

    choke clip?

    Good morning, I also spent a few hours yesterday to figure out how the choke light is supposed to be operating.. So, if I’m right the choke light stays off as long as the engine hasn’t reached a certain temperature yet, even when the choke is pulled out ? Once the engine is on temperature and...

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Hello Bernd, Thanks, but what am I supposed to look at ?

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    End of experiment, I thought I could use conventional H4 halogen bulbs, but my P6 has got a combined reflector/bulb instead. Not sure if that’s common on a P6, but I will just leave it as it is. Anyway, it’s a nice discussion. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Wilfred

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Different for sure, you’re right. You can’t miss a car with yellow headlights, I associate it with an oldtimer car. I will change them tomorrow I think and see how it looks, that’s the only way to find out ;) To be continued.. Wilfred

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Hi, yes no problem. Lights at the front can be either white or yellow. At the back only red is allowed, except for the return lights. They must be white. Indicator lights must be orange. (We like rules that do not make any sense :))

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Hmm, nice combination with the colour of the car, my Mexico Brown would also fit I think. Either you like it or you don’t, there’s no in between. It’s also safer they thought, when you drive in the fog for example or heavy rain, the reflection is much less, on the other hand traffic plates...

    Yellow headlights on my P6, would it work ?

    Good morning, Some oldtimer cars are equipped with yellow headlights, French cars are a good example. I also read that Triumph used yellow lights as a standard in the old days, at least they offered it as an option. So.. I wonder how it would fit on my P6. Are there any members who did the...

    Electronic ignition module in my P6

    Morning, That’s hard to tell from a distance, maybe this diagram helps you out. The only difference with your example is that the control module is inside the distributor. To measure is to know ;)

    Valve clearance, timing chain etc. P6 2000TC

    I’m just reading this and realised that I kept my spark plug gaps at 0.6 mm, which is about 0.024” You wrote it can be changed to 0.04”, which is about 1mm. Is that correct? My P6 has also got electronic ignition, hence my question. Cheers, Wilfred

    Valve clearance, timing chain etc. P6 2000TC

    That’s clear then, I could get 0.15 easily in though. So it’s probably close to 0.20

    Hi, I just did when I changed all coolant hoses :thumb:

    Finally started replacing my P6 steering box.

    ;) Hi, it’s made of wood. The reason I looked for another one is that I damaged the old one while removing it. Some funny bloke tightened the central nut far too much, so that I even had to use my air wrench to get it loose, also a pulley pooler (don’t know the English word for it) to get the...

    This part is used to control the indicator lights after a U-turn

    Valve clearance, timing chain etc. P6 2000TC

    Hi, so each pair of bearing cap bolts also tighten the head then ? That’s a good idea indeed, do you think that the current clearance is still acceptable for this engine?
