    Yes, I’m actually in the USA but TBH I thought that it was a bit pricey, I do have an nos top half of the shroud I snapped up on eBay for a good price and could probably make the bottom half as I have some forming tools, meanwhile I’m still watching - who knows?perhaps someone will find one sitting on a shelf..

    I remember Glenn Merrell from the Stag club of USA had these cowls remanufactured in ABS. Costly import option for you though. - Alan

    Here are the pieces from my car that some other bugger is enjoying!

    As far as I’m aware the oil pressure switch does not need to be actually replaced, the three contact one has normally open and normally closed contacts both go to a ground contact so just selecting the correct one should be enough. The one used for the anti run on valve just becomes redundant

    The normally closed contact feeds the oil light(opens when there’s pressure— light off)

    The normally open one grounds the valve when there’s pressure but the valve has no power. When you turn ignition off it supplies power and operates the valve for a few seconds until the oil pressure drops.

    Thanks Raoul - the emissions control gear on this car had already been butchered somewhat when it came to me. The adsorption canister was still there, though connections to it had been messed with, and there's no sign of an anti run-on valve. Also there are no connections to the thermo switch on the radiator. I wasn't aware of the oil pressure switch issue, so will check status of that. At some time in the car's life the engine has been replaced with one having serial number quite close to the original, though I wouldn't know whether the carbs are the original ones. Engine is currently out and in the hands of a specialist who will check and sort any issues then tune it - I have told them the emissions gear is being ditched. Cheers - Dave

    Hi Dave,
    My car is/was an early 77 car with all the emissions stuff on it when I bought the car, I was told by a Qld Triumph guru that I would never get the car in tune with it fitted and he advised me to return it back to UK spec. It was easy to do however you will need to replace the 3 pin oil pressure switch, and isolate two of the electrical connections to it. They are live when there is oil pressure for the anti run on valve. You will also need to disconnect the fuel tank vent line, that is found running just behind the brake servo. The Rimmers Catalogue shows what parts you will need to buy to return it to UK spec.

    regards,
    Raoul

    Bloody rude thing to do, I reckon.... the b*****d!

    Thanks for your post Terry - yes, I have the two pieces on the right of your pic, but not the one on the left. I guess it would be quite easy to have fabricated if dimensions could be ascertained.

    Your comment regarding the tank breather is noted - I'm pretty sure it's taken care of but will check.

    I just read back a bit..

    If you are blocking up that short stub on the fuel tank you need to make sure that there is another way air can enter the tank as the fuel is used up. On federal cars the stub is the only vent and the UK type vent from the fuel filler is blanked off.

    I have recently fitted an aftermarket tank that does not have that stub so to provide ventilation I have added a vent into the fuel filler, just a matter of unscrewing the bolt and installing a 1/8 npt barb fitting... but I ended up with a 90 degree one as it fitted better.

    Hi Jeff - my car has now gone off for it's panel and paint job and I'm sifting through the piles of stuff I removed from it to figure out what's good/bad, what can be refurbished and what needs to be replaced. Being Aus spec. it has the 2-piece fan cowl, but seems to be missing this part - 313090 (highlighted below. This part seems to be specific to Aus cars and I don't see it listed on any of the suppliers' websites. Does your car have this and do you know what purpose it serves?

    If anyone else can advise, please post a reply. Thanks.

    Hi Dave

    You guess correctly - just blanked off with a bit of tube and a bolt. See attached photo.

    Let me know if you have any other queries!
