  1. Rich

    Good evening

    We are just off the A&N roundabout 5 Fraser Close CM2 0TD

    I am usually around . . . Here, at my daughters in Chelmer Village . . . . . At my sons place in Witham.

    Just call me on 07713 916725 and we can meet up

     

    John

  2. Pete - If Ralph doesn't want to part with his, I've got a spare one fully refurbished - let me know if interested. Ralph - I've also got a spare 3A/4 manifold - ditto cheers Rich
  3. Rob I think we are getting confused here - trailing arm brackets are at the rear - you seem to be referring the the front lower suspension mountings. I've attached some photos of strengthening brackets on one of my chassis ( I haven't finished dressing them so apologies for the welding looking a bit lumpy at the moment) - these photos are of the nearside - hopefully they will help. I used a standard strengthening kit and modified it a little with some additional fillets - just make sure the very front strengthener ( one on the left in second photo) doesn't stick down too far otherwise you wont be able to fit the bumper support bracket! Cheers Rich
  4. Hi - do you have a name? Apologies for not responding earlier. To send a PM in response to a post, simply click on the circle to the left of the post with the posters initial or photo - in my case with the letter "R" in it and that will open a new screen in which there is a box along the top which says "Message" - click in that box and it will open up another scren where you can type a private message to the poster. Hope that helps and look forward to your PM! cheers Rich
  5. Hi everyone Have put ads in Classifieds in the recent past and not had much response, if any. I know a lot of forumites don't look there so hope you don't mind me posting direct on here. I need to create some space and cash flow after collecting too many gearboxes and diffs in the recent past for my various restorations. I have various specs of gearbox, including TR converted Stag boxes, all with overdrives, including both A & J types with 22, 25 & 28% ratios. These have all been uprated with 3 bearing laygears, steel thrust washers and extra pinned clutch forks/shafts, and have been fully stripped, reconditioned & bench tested by one of the country’s leading rebuilders. All are at very affordable prices. I also have a selection of IRS diffentials for 4A, 5 & 6 in 3.7 and 3.45 ratios, all again fully stripped, rebuilt and restored. Last but not least, I have a couple of brand new alloy fuel tanks for TR 4-6 going spare s well If of interest,please PM me for more details Cheers Rich

  8. Dave - Welcome to the forum from me as well - you will find a wealth of knowledge and experience on here to help you - joining the Register and getting to know other restorers in your local group will be an enormous help for you - whereabouts are you based? When you say you have rebuilt your chassis, do you mean it's all finished and beautifully painted because, if it is, you have potentially created a problem for yourself. If you mean you have repaired it, but not prepped it, then thats fine. Your chassis has to be your body jig, and rebuilding even a good body will inevitably mean damaging a pristine chassis because of all the welding and cutting which will go on all around it. To assess how good or bad your body tub is, we really need to see some photos - views will vary tremendously on what is good and what is bad, as you will probably find out shortly!!! Anyway, don't be put off - we really will try and help you!
  9. Jon - from past experience on my part, I personally would not be looking to replace the floors in your car en masse, but rather it I would cut up a new floor pan to make repair sections for those areas which need it - your floors don't look that bad! Similarly with your sills - if the rest of your sill is sound and only the front bit under the wing is rotten, just cut it out and weld in a new bit - new sills are nowhere near as good as old ones and you will have to do a fair bit of work to make them fit well, so stick with what you've got as far as possible. I've learnt the hard way that we are typically too quick to cut out panels in total when there is only a little rot, whereas it's often, admittedly not always, easier to repair in situ and avoid losing the integrity of the original panel alignment. However, you have to assess what you have properly and I don't dismiss replacing in total when you have to - I also agree that reality is often much worse than it appears when it comes to rot but I don't think your front sill is anywhere near as bad as the photos PodOne has just posted Just my pennyworth Cheers Rich
  10. Worst of all in my view is that I understand it is flammable - think about that in the event of a crash! Cheers Rich
  11. John - according to the "system", it's telling me you haven't read my original PM which I find puzzling - not sure if that is true or not - no doubt you will know!! Cheers Rich
  12. Hi - to read a PM, scroll up to the very top of this page, and on the right hand side, you will see an icon of a bell and an envelope, to the left of your name - just click on the envelope and it will take you into the message box where you will be able to see and reply to any messages. If you want to send a message to someone like John Morrison who has replied in the post, simply click on the circle beneath his name and it will take you to various options I can see that you haven't yet read my original PM - don't give up, e'll get you there Cheers Rich
  13. Hi - a PM is a personal message sent to your inbox - if you go to the top of any forum page, you will see an envelope icon which is your inbox - if there is an unread message in your inbox, there will be a red tag above it - click on it and it will open up and you can then read your messages and reply , privately if you want cheers Rich
  14. A member on here called Steve manufactures this part i can’t remember his “handle” but I’ll PM you his phone number cheers Rich
  15. Andy from my limited knowledge of this area, a 69 tr6 would have had an A type Od if fitted by factory l also didn’t think there were any material differences between a 4A casing and a tr 6 one - the ratios are the same as well so not sure why you think it’s a bitsa unit - it sounds pretty correct to me and the chassis is for a Atype Od in any event so it will drop straight in i don’t think you have a problem less I have misunderstood your post incidentally , who is doing the refurb? cheers Rich
