#190405 scuttle vent flap

Posted by Don Elliott on 05 November 2010 - 03:36 AM

Stan - Here is a sketch of mine which I drew in 1988 plus a more recent sketch from Johannes who is restoring his TR3A on Germany. I also show a photo of mine showing that the front is up 3 inches.

#190371 scuttle vent flap

Posted by ntc on 04 November 2010 - 08:20 PM

Hi Stan
This is how I did mine to make sure it worked until the right parts came along including the seal which does not fit, and it seems to work fine :D however do not bank on it being correct :unsure:

#17706 Grinnall TR8

Posted by malcolm on 21 June 2004 - 05:46 PM

There has been a fair amount of discussion about the Grinnall TR8 recently on the forum as cars have come up for sale on ebay, some attracting high prices.  This has become particularly topical this year with the formation of a fledgling TRR Grinnall Register and renewed interest in Mr Grinnall and his cars expressed in TRaction by our editor Steve Redway.  As TR7/8 Registrar I've heard conflicting oppinions on this and I'd be really interested to find out what you think.

Please vote and/or comment.

#391435 Ceramic coated exhaust manifold

Posted by whatmore179 on 11 September 2014 - 06:06 AM

I had my 6 phoenix stainless ceramic coated by Zircotech 3 years ago now. It does help with the heat in the engine bay, but it still gets hot in there.
You can put your hand next to the manifold and it radiates warm not scolding, plus it cools down quicker.
I would use Zircotech again. Costly but I think worth it.
Zircotech are based in Abingdon and are used by all the motorsport teams.

#338597 vented brakes and soft pedal

Posted by harrytr5 on 29 September 2013 - 09:04 PM

Thanks All,

I am aware that I have hi jacked this thread and I am sorry for that.I am fitting the RPV on the front tomorrow to see what changes it does and then report on in a new thread.

Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

New thread. I fitted RPV's from Willwood. 2 lb front and 10 lb rear close to the master cylinder.Took calipers off and machined the alloy support to give me equal clearances both side of the disc,s.Bled the system twice.Reversed out of my garage with a slight hump to pavement and braked,drove forwards and braked,same result as before long brake pedal. What the f$$k is going on!. Looked at buckeye.org for clues.I had all this with standard parts when first fitted up eight years ago.Been changing parts and upgraded with the same result.I will be looking at the rear cylinders as this has not been changed since the rebuild and could be here.I checked the servo push rod and adjusted up too far, I now believe according to buckeye.It should have 35 thou clearance and could be here.The pedal is rock hard with the engine off.I put the old master cylinder back on as the new one did not make any difference.I just can not believe something so simple can cause so much grief.This time I am going to persevere till I solve it,BUT WHAT!

Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

Hi, I have just become the proud new owner of a 1959 TR3A and wondered if anyone could give me any contacts with regards to balancing the SU carbs in the Northamptonshire area.

many thanks Louis
