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.

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.

#460027 TR2 TR3 Boot Lid Side Drip Channels

Posted by Stevecross on 18 January 2016 - 01:05 AM

Hi All


Had a good day today working on the rear end of my TR2 restoration.


One of my problems was that the side drip channels were rotted out and I could not find anyone reproducing them.


Set about recreating from what I had and made up templates & formers to produce my own.


V pleased with outcome but just wondered if any other members would be interested in these before I lose the templates & formers.

I have made these over length at 55cm so can be cut to size. Also undrilled for wing fixing so could be used as a repair piece.

The up stand at the wing edge is also around 2mm higher than my sample to take into account corrosion etc but will just need a sand off to fit flush.

They were originally a 2 piece construction which I have copied and spot welded to as close to factory as I could make out. (spot welded not plug welded so no grinding out in the channel necessary)


If any members would like me to reproduce them then PM me. I reckon around 14 quid a side + p&p will cover my costs before I lose the templates!

#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

Stay with the Pi system, just get it sorted properly, you'll learn to love it!! TR5/6 .. Pi ... synonymous you know it makes sense!!

25 years with one of the Pi saloons, I never once dreamed of converting it to carbs, I was proud of it being a Pi, and yes, at one time or another I had every part of the system into it's component parts. Once you absorb all the available information about the system it becomes infinitely tune-able for either power or economy and with some patience both.
Cheers Rob

#211624 Fitting new hood

Posted by Don Elliott on 19 April 2011 - 02:38 AM

Here are the holes I had to punch in the new Robbins top I bought from Roadster Factory in 1989. The holes line up with the pegs that are located along the top of the frame for the windscreen and are pressed down around the hexagon part of each peg before pushing the outer push-cap down onto the peg.
