Triumph Vitesse - HELP - fuel tank required
|Can anyone help. I need a fuel tank for my 13/60 Herald convertible - the Vitesse conv/saloon one will also fit.|
Does anyone have a good, non rusty one for sale in the south east?
|No, but I have one in the North West. Clean, rust free outisde and no noisey bits inside when you shake it. Contact me if you can't find one nearer home.|
|It would depend on where you are and what your price is!! Can you let me know?|
|Lancaster. £25, OMMAO.|
|What does OMMAO mean?|
|Or Make Me An Offer.|
Come on, Nick, stop messing about. You have my email address, if you want this fuel tank, contact me.
|If that's your attitude, forget it.|
|Nick - I have one but as they are like gold dust so i'm keeping it - sorry. You could try Triumph Spares of Chelmsford (01245) 257739 for a second hand one or a place in Forest Gate, East London 020 8534 1981, between them they have never let me down for a s/h part. Alternatively TD Fitchett (sorry, don't have a number) have had some remanufactured but I seem to remember they were quite expensive - £120 ?? Good luck, let me know if you can't find one and I will ask the local TSSC group.|
Thanks very much for taking the time to offer advice - it's nice to see someone on here with a helpful attitude!!
I have repaired my original tank with some excellent stuff from Halfords and rustproofed it inside and out so hopefully it will last a few more years. If it goes again I will probably buy a new one from Quiller - it is expensive but should be a permenant cure.
There is a Herald in a scrapyard in W Drayton
|I actually bought a used one from Quiller (0208 854 4777)6 months ago for £30.00. They had 3 or 4 other Heralds in their yard, don't know if they've still got the tanks in or not.|
You probably feel we've done this one to death.... ther are two advertised in this months practical classics... d.stevens, bucks 01494 862024 'cheap to clear' ......Reg, staffs, 01889 271037 £10 with locking filler cap .....might make a cheap spare
|Haven't been online for a while - thanks to all who posted helpful comments.|
Got the dreaded MOT next week - fingers crossed.
