Re: Mk II interior floor access panel

No true Rootes built MKII has the door in the photo. If your car has that door and someone sold you a 'MKII' at the least, the rear clip was replaced with a Alpine or Tiger MKI clip.

You may want to look at this web site.

Re: Pulley line-up

The pulley line up problem is caused by the non-standard pulley on the original generator. Ford swapped the generator pulley from another application to make it line up with the non-standard water pump pulley flange. This allowed the fan to be mounted closer to the engine in a Tiger application.

Re: Originality: hubcaps

Gene Winfield created the Get Smart car from an Alpine with all the trick features. Look for the book, The Legendary Custom Cars and Hot Rods of Gene Winfield. There are a few photos of the car with Don Adams checking out the spy stuff. The AMT Get Smart model is an Alpine based off of Gene Winfield...

Re: Can You Rebuild Original 260 & Make it fun?

If your driving experience is typical British sports cars like Trimphs, Mgs, etc. then stock 260 performance is a great improvement. Plus, there is no real need to do "improvements" to the car. On the other hand if your experience is with big engine Mustangs like you say, then you probably...

Re: transmission color

The transmission on my car was not painted when I recently rebuilt it. However, I did paint it with "cast iron" paint after the rebuild.

Re: Tiger 260 Lower Engine (Crank) Pulley

The part number is C4JZ-6312-A. It was supplied by the Ford Industrial division and will not match the usual 260 or 289 pulley. A poster on this list says he has several for sale:

Re: Tiger 260 Block Questions

""Get a copy of Performance Tuning the Sunbeam Tiger, it will answer a lot of questions you pose" I wouldn't trust that book. That is the source of the rumor: 260 block with three freeze plugs is the same as a 289 block but not bored out to 289 specs. Any info in it pertaining to 260 ...
