Im looking at the situation with my front suspension bolts - most if not all of them need to be replaced.

Im trying to find a listing of the description of the bolts so I can order more locally. There is a listing in the Operations manual however it dosent state the part number or the bolt length - Im trying to get a list together so I can order replacements. Does anyone have such a list - im told the older Operations manual has such a list.

Does any one has such a list ?

thanks

Alastair
Looking on British E-bay, I found several Triumph Toledo parts catalogues and microfiches listed for sale

What computer software package does one need to open documents with a file name ending with a dot_RAR suffix? I don't recognise this format!

.RAR is an archive file. 7-zip is my preferred utility for handling them.

chipping away at cleaning blasting and painting my entire front suspension set up including the brakes bearings and subframe - who knew there were so many bits? Im keeping everything prety much standard as I fear I will have problems compliance wise when it comes to registering it if I stray from the original set spec too much.
Im using rustoleum paint over an etch primer so hopefully the paint will be up-to the task. Im now at the point where I can start reassembling it all and hopefully I will be able to start by putting the sub frame back in this weekend - very hot out here at the moment - fortunately the garage is under the house and is one of the cooler places to be.
I've been luck in being able to find just about everything I need relatively easily. Only problem has been a j-type overdrive - I had one lined but due to a miscommunication it got sold to someone else - they-re rare out here. So if you have one tucked away somewhere I would be keen to hear about it!
Ive also overhauled the air blower and the brake booster and have put those back in, so starting to make progress!

What also intrigued me was the rear bumper, which I believe to originate from an early-model Triumph Dolomite 1850. Did New Zealand specification Triumph Toledos have a plain bumper like mine and number-plate illumination in the underside of boot-lid top or was production rationalised by using a Dolomite bumper!?! In one of the pictures below, one can just see the edge, of what might be a number-plate illumination unit in the underside of boot-lid top

I rather like that early-model Triumph Dolomite 1850 rear bumper with the long single number-plate illumination lamp, but I wonder how well it would illuminate the higher-position licence plate on a Toledo!?!

Here are a matched pair of front & rear bumpers which I am contemplating the acquisition for my 1974 Triumph Toledo.

I don't presently have a front bumper and that rear bumper looks as though its chrome plating might be in better condition than my existing rear bumper. In addition to licence-plate illumination, I also need to consider the routing of the lamp-units wiring, given that I also have a Dolomite towing bracket fitted!?!
