Triumph TR6 - Heater Bulkhead Connector

Has ANYBODY ever mentioned a SS bulkhead connector. I think I need to change mine and I thought for sure I've seen 1 mentioned somewhere. I thought I changed mine with the engine work but I guess not. After 26 years not too bad.

You are right to be concerned about the foam placement Don, mine still makes a slightly annoying "chink" instead of a "thuNK" when switching between screen and feet.

I think you could make a couple of educated guesses with the foam and not be far wrong - unfortunately it was too long ago for me to rememeber where they went and event then it seems it wasn't right!!

I suggest getting the 'radiator' part pressure tested and check fan brushes and motor operation before before re-assembly. Also think about having the bulkhead twin-hose connector re-made in stainless steel - that, and some nice relaxing music when you start to re-fit it.

Cheers

I must have change them right before I pulled it of the road. Why do they look like that??

I found 3 places in the UK and europe. One of the UK was Moss. Anybody know of West Claasic

Don,
I think that I got mine from TRF...not likely to be stainless, but I'll look in a day or so and let you know.

Why so important to go SS for this part? I mean like antifreeze has anti-corrosion properties... and you did say "After 26 years not too bad." ( if you are talking about the life of the part here???).
I would think SS is going to be 2 to 3 times more$
I put my corroded "necks" one back in and still going after 5 years more.

It turned out that part was less than a year old and probably only had 3 starts on it.
DON KELLY

Don,
Use only distilled water in your radiator. Change the antifreeze every season (2x/yr) and flush it with cleaner every other change...you won't have the build up you see in your connectors:)

I think it had something to do with 10 years of not running. You should have seen the engine when I removed the stop on the block.
I created a Super Fund Site with that cleaning
I only owned the car for a little over a year when I tore it apart.
I don't know if I will put enough miles on it to change every season now that I have 2 cars.
