  1. Phil, too many questions to answer in writing - i think some pictures will help - send me an email address and i'll send you what i have, or give me a call 07967 725 999 and we can try and sort out what you have. regards Mike
  2. I have the same Dolomite base as you - the pull switch is suspect - first: loosen the red switch cover (unscrew) and work in in and out a few times - this allows the switch contacts to move over a greater distance. Second: unscrew the red cover, and unscrew the switch from the dashboard - disconnect via the six pin plug that is about 75mm down the wires , and try some switch cleaner. Third: buy a new switch from Rimmers 159905A (£50) i've totally rewired my car - running earths from everwhere - there is a lot of uneccesary wire in the loom (heated rear windows, boot light, courtesy lights, heaters) etc. also there is a Night dimming relay in the rear brake light, and indicator circuits - i suggest you throw that away - it has 6 terminals - just link the wire from contact 3 and 6 together, 2 and 5 together, and 1 and 4 together. this dims all the rear lights when you turn the headlights on The circular warning light cluster works well, but has 'interesting' internal connections - work to the original wiring diagram and its fine - alternatively just pull the plug off the back off the cluster its about 50mm in diameter - i can send you the wire numbers to connect to individual bulbs - only one queston -does the cluster have two individual turn lamps or one dual turn lamp where are you based - i'm in Clithere, Lancashire, and have suffered most of the problems that the dolomite mechanicals/electrics can throw at you.

    Hs 6 Twin Carbs

    Hi, I need a pair of HS 6 1 3/4" carbs - ideally from a Triumph Dolomite 1850, but any will do these are for a S7 robin hood thanks Mike 0967 725 999
  6. Hi, Good Luck - Triumph engines at that age don't seem to have engine numbers stamped on them if it is present you'll need to take the inlet manifold off to see it - its between the carb's under the manifold My chassis number is written in weld on the chassis angle running under/alongside the engine good luck
  7. Hi, I have a dolomite based S7 which is nearly on the road (typical hoody comment). I live in Clitheroe, Lancashire if you send me your contact details - you are welcome to come and have a look
