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?



Nick

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.
JohnD

It would depend on where you are and what your price is!! Can you let me know?

Nick

Lancaster. 25, OMMAO.
JohnD

What does OMMAO mean?

Nick

Or Make Me An Offer.

Come on, Nick, stop messing about. You have my email address, if you want this fuel tank, contact me.
JohnD

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.

Keith,

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.

Cheers,
Nick.

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.
