|Rubber carb mounting on its way to failure.|
The Triumph Dolomite Club sells some very nicely made solid aluminium mountings to replace the rubber ones and I bought a set of these together with some more replacement spark plug tubes as mentioned in a previous post.

Next job on the list was to sort out an annoying clonk from the exhaust. Its a very nice fully stainless system that I got from S & S Preparations and it was touching somewhere at the rear of the car but not all of the time. All the mountings were OK so I checked all the clamps and went out on a test drive - nothing at first then lots of clonks after a few miles. Looking again I realised that when the system gets hot it was hitting the towing eye on the rear chassis rail. This was soon sorted out with the angle grinder and it now has plenty of clearance !
