In 1998 I bought a Triumph Herald 13/60, here you can read about it's restoration and share in a few photo's from it's travels. Please feel free to leave comments to any of the posts, of even email me if you want to.

Good Vibrations

The weather has been beautiful here in Devon this weekend, which spurred me into doing a couple of jobs on my 'to do' list. Most importantly was to fix the vibration that could be felt from 45~60mph.

The balancing & tracking weren't to blame, these were done shortly after the MoT pass in January, so the next likely cause was the propshaft. For a small sum I purchased a rusty strap type from Spitbitz, cleaned it up, fitted new UJ's and left it with Propshaft Services in Feltham, Middlesex to have it balanced. Finally fitted it today and what a difference, everything is now nice a smooth.....

The other job was to fit a 'Dis-car-nect' security device, which I hadn't done as I had to make up a new battery lead but didn't have a heavy duty crimping tool. A little improvisation with a vice, standard crimping tool and a hammer and it was all fitted in a round 10 minutes.

2 good jobs done, but still need to fix and fit an original header rail to my hood frame.
