  1. Richard ...This is what is shown on the now retired Malcolms web page relating to the "Bosch type" pump fitted alongside a picture of the arrangement http://www.prestigeinjection.net/pumps.htm
  2. I purchased a pump set up from Malcolm of Prestige (now retired) a couple of years ago.... Working great but I understand not a Bosch pump anymore...Any ideas which pump should I ever need a replacement?
  3. Why convert to carbs when this chap is around to refurb your pi kit at an afordable price? Neil did all my pi equipment (Metering unit/Injectors/pressure relief valve I fitted a new Bosch conversion from the now retired Malcolm at Prestige and basically the whole system has been touchwood fit and forget!
  4. I'm sure I read somewhere of somebody offering a proper restoration service for the original enamel badges? Probably not cheap but possibly a whole lot better than some of these awful "pattern" badges around?
  5. Same here...I had my whole PI system overhauled a couple of years ago and have had no problems whatsoever (touch wood)... I do know though that modern fuels tend to "go off" a lot quicker than the old stuff...I always leave at least half a tank in it when not using it and start it up once a month
  6. Mine is NOT for sale ...I've owned it over 30 years...however the values seem all over the place..I've seen PI CP models for sale recently between £7000 and £35,000! How you value one accurately would appear a finger in the wind touch IMHO
  7. So Stallie...Did you manage to find a solution...if so what did you do.....Why do you think when the pump was held it cut out?
  8. Are these condensors in a green box with white stripes on by any chance, because I have one of those along with two other green boxes one containing a new set of points and the other a new rotor arm in my glove box....plus of course some fag paper for setting the gap!
  9. On a slightly separate note...I remember reading how leaded petrol provided lubrication for the rotating parts of the metering unit...and that using unleaded would cause the metering units to fail... I've never put any lead additive in my TR6 and just run it on supermarket 95 Ron and so far no problems...although to be fair I've ony covered about 3k since I got it back on the road
  10. Andy was it easy to install ? I'm not great with electrical wiring...do you have to convert to modern car electrical sockets for the power and speakers?
  11. I realise it a cheapy from china ...but it kind of looks the part and i'm sure will sound better than the 35 year old cassette radio in my car Has anyone tried one of these out at all? https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/173383738701?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=173383738701&targetid=520884170599&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1006976&poi=&campaignid=6744139833&mkgroupid=78343140446&rlsatarget=pla-520884170599&abcId=1139126&merchantid=114962564&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI6umA59Dp5QIVDbDtCh34MwKxEAQYBCABEgKluvD_BwE

    MX5 seats

    I recently bought a pair of MK1 seats from Paul Bishop that he has overhauled and recovered in gorgeous blue leather...I'm absolutely chuffed with them and paid Paul £650 for them...He doesnt send seats through the post though now...you have to pick them up Runners as recommended by Paul... £100 from TR Trader
  13. https://groupharrington.com/brand/triumph/page/2/ Not sure if any money is saved buying direct...plus if it arrived damaged that would be fun sorting that out sending it back etc I'd personally buy from a uk supplier such as TR shop
  14. With a proper Bosch pump set up, a clean fuel tank and the metering unit/prv/injectors/throttle bodies reconditioned by someone like Raven Smith there really are not a lot of problems to be honest...and I speak from experience...and we are talking a 50 year old vehicle here too
  15. Hi Don't want to hijack this thread...I own a 71 CP UK TR6 and I never knew there was a rod. I've always opened my metal scuttle lid by hand externally...It opens and shuts ok this way and is on a spring If I do have a rod where would I see it in the car...If I don't does it mean I just need the rod and will it be easy to fit with everything in situ? .....Edit ...Sorry should have read the thread more thoroughly before my original post.....No sign of any lever on my car near the H frame...and I notice that the lever is not available at moss either
