    HELP THE NHS ~ I've let my adjoining empty house (fully furnished) to four NHS nurses free of charge during this National Emergency. We have a very large General Hospital at the top of the road. Some of these nurses have to travel large distances to the hospital. Now these nurses are in walking distance to the hospital. My late wife was a Nurse and I'm sure she would approve of my actions. It's the least we can do for our 'Angels' who work very long and dedicated hours. When this emergency is over my Grand-daughter and her family will move into the house. Tom.

    Well, it's about 16 months since I posted here. I've been lurking for a couple of months or so, but feel now is the time to join in, contribute hopefully, and to gain again from the camaraderie of fellow TRR'rs. Here are the TR and Stag, taken in Feb after they had both had a run out. They both got a run the day before the current restrictions came into force. If the travel restrictions remain then I'm sure one or both will be employed on a shopping trip at some point.

    Today, the British Motor Museum held a press launch to unveil its latest, most exciting exhibit. Ken Timms Chairman of Board of Trustees at the British Motor Museum and David Stocker, Trustee for The National Heritage Memorial Fund announced the addition of MVC 575 to the collection at Gaydon. The Museum now own the car, thanks to a £250,000 grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF). This historic Triumph TR2 broke the land speed record for two-litre production cars in Belgium, on the Jabbeke Highway. On that day in 1953 and with Ken Richardson at the wheel, it made the Triumph TR sports car a household name around the world. We covered the rebuild extensively in TR Action Magazine, was there at the launch of the restoration at the RAC Club in Pall Mall and even took it back to Jabbeke in 2017. Today marked an exciting moment in the life of this iconic TR. Video below, full article here: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2020/03/0220/Jabbeke-TR2-arrives-at-British-Motor-Museum

    John Yes I do listen to the TV and radio It told me that people who exhibit symptoms were being tested. How true is that? Only a few know Early action only delays. Take Germany. Today their health minister (I think it was) stated that there will be a big increase in CV19 deaths. Germany got lucky, testing early, mainly, it turn out the young fit and healthy skiers, returning from holiday; not my words . . His. Thus their figures are skewed. I stated the obvious because it needed stating. The media are screaming about the lack of PPE and they are right, there is a lack, but, the gov't we have is the best of a bad job, the alternative being JC. I don't think they are deliberately making themselves public enemy No1, there is a tonne of kudos and years in power on offer if they get it right, why would they not want that? I don't excuse anyone John, not my place. I mearly offer what I see as a reasonable counter to your position. Is your position wrong? I don't know. Is mine wrong? I don't know. Only time will tell. What I will say is, that being constantly negative, without offering positive counters, does no one any favours. It's a problem the BBC have but havn't yet recognised. If someone constantly cries wolf, the audience stops listening. I note that you ignored my last comment . . . I rest my case.

    No.3 pot has been low on compression since car was re-commissioned in 2013, but lately it's got a lot worse, now around half the value of the other 3. Car still running ok, so I was going to leave it till I stripped the whole engine. With the current restrictions, I decided to whip it off now to see what was happening. Following a suggestion from Hamish, today I made an adapter out of an old spark plug to allow me to inject compressed air into the pot. So rocker box off, turned engine till No. 2 rockers were rocking, so that I knew both valves on No. 3 will be closed. (yes there was clearance between valves & rockers) inject air at approx 50 PSI, & lo & behold lots of air exiting from the exhaust (none form carbs). Result, so now I know what to expect to see when head comes off. This could be interesting, as it was last put on by the Triumph factory circa 1965 (factory recon engine) Bob.

    Knock Knock ...How do you make a duck into a great singer...you put it into a microwave and wait until it's Bill Withers. Time passes and music marks the memory of good times and bad and who can forget Bill Withers contribution who has recently passed away aged 81. Neil McCormick in the Telegraph reports Bill Withers walked away from music in 1985, when he was 47. He had done all he needed to, had made a lot of money, and by all accounts enjoyed a long and productive retirement. He released no more music for the next 35 years and expressed no regrets. So let us not become too overwrought at his death, at 81, from heart issues, surrounded by his family. For those of us who only knew him through his music, he left a small but perfectly formed catalogue of some of the greatest songs ever written and recorded. It is very hard to put a finger on what made Withers so unique. His sound existed in a place between blues, soul, gospel, country, funk, jazz and pop. His arrangements were sleek and unfussy. And he sung with relaxed pace and restrained emotion, never over-stressing nor employing any of the showy, expressive techniques common in R’n’B music. His songs were melodious, philosophical, pared down to their essence and usually very short and to the point. But wow, they did everything a song needed to in their allotted space and time. It's going to be more difficult to find those "Lovely days" without Bill. Mick Richards

    When restoring an old Triumph (or no doubt an MG), it used to be possible to check when the bodywork had been repaired. After digging out the filler, just look for the date on the newspaper! Nigel

    I have been contacted by a TR Forum member who is restoring an early TR2. He asked if I would make him a pair of bonnet catches complete with their inner wing platforms. As you can see from the pictures the prototype items have been made. My thanks to Daniel Morris in Honolulu!!! for supplying me with a rare original set to copy. My intention is to complete one off, small batch, of catches and/or platforms. The price for the twin bonnet catches will be about £340 for a pair, the cost for the handed inner wing platforms will be approximately £100 a pair. Please contact me if you would like further information. Regards Russell

    The wedge is having an extra long hibernation in the garage. Sadly it is 20 miles away in my partner's parents garage, so I will not get to see it again for a while. I had planned on taking it out for a drive next Thursday to coincide with my birthday, I am rather sad that won't be happening. Hoping the majority of the travelling restrictions will be lifted before the end of Summer.

    The problem with a die nut or a but with slots cut in is getting it started. If the first few threads are damaged you may well end up damaging more threads The picture below came up on the TSSC forum last year. It is a clamp of hardened split nuts You clamp it in the middle where the threads may well be OK and unwind to clean the start threads. Genius - but long gone. Roger

    I couldn't waste a beautiful day like this, so did a 60 mile circular loop out to Avebury and back, across the Berkshire and Wiltshire downs (no roof, aeroscreens only). In the odd dip the roads were flooded where there's run-off from the fields, so I managed to get my right elbow soaked by an inconsiderate oncoming driver who didn't slow down through one watersplash. TRs are very low down compared to the ubiquitous Chelsea tractor ! The photo isn't from today but is on the route I took. This is the Chute Causeway (Roman road) north of Andover.

    Unashamedly stolen from the TSSC forum - Paddy goes to the toilet at work but doesn't return for about 20 minutes. "Where have you been all this time?" asked the boss. "Washing my hands, I forgot the words to Happy Birthday so sang Bohemian Rhapsody twice" he replied Thank you TSSC. Roger

    Thats why the factory leaded at that point to correct this, pretty much every one Ive done needed this. This is a 5 but same applies, often a little on the bottom of the boot lid helps too Stuart.

    Rather laying my classics up for lockdown, I'm currently using them in rotation for essential trips to the shops. This is of course allowed under the current restrictions but I realise the police may pull me over suspecting I'm simply out for pleasure. I take a shopping list and carrier bags, which should provide some evidence that my journey is essential. Nigel

    I am doing my bit for self isolation just me in the TR, she had a wash and clean yesterday and then a 50 mile run around Buxton area. Today I had a run up the motorway to Liverpool and back along the B roads stopping off at a quiet spot to take a photo and then back home, this could be one of the last runs for a while, keep safe everyone.

    For those that may not be aware, The late Alec Pringle organised a series (3 I think) of "TRarchaeology" outings where a number of interested owners got together under the leadership of a "proper archaeologist" (who has been on TV, & also happens to own a TR3A) and got to see some really good ancient sites. This could be viewed as a continuation of that theme. Do a search on TRarchaeology on this forum & you will get an idea of how much fun it was. Bob.
