  1. From Malmoe it's 116 km upp north along the coast to Mellbystrand, add about 15-20 km across the bridge from Copenhagen to Malmoe. Passing Ängelholm you might drop in at Konigsegg and opt for one of their cars.
  2. https://www.blocket.se/helsingborg/Triumph_TR2_1954_86112360.htm?ca=11&w=3&last=1 https://www.blocket.se/halland/Triumph_TR_TR2_2_0_90hk_86163862.htm?ca=11&w=3 The white one (TS928) was restored and put in traffic 1990, 23k SEK is a starting bid, the other ad (probably TS 3594 according to VTR survivor list, reg no EOY676) has everything explained in English. Both cars in south-west of Sweden
  3. I bought them from Rimmers late 2016, drove the car first time spring 2018, first one started leaking last autumn and the second one now. And this is what the seal looks and what it looks inside. Pitting in the cylinder wall and scored rubber seal.
  4. ....story continued, today I discovered a massive leak in the other side rear brake cylinder (lasted two years from new) thanks to Peter W I had a NOS cylinder ready to go in, so car is ready for road again. The quality of those repro cylinders is really poor! State of paint of inside rim is awful. http://www.ijonsson.se/tr2/photos/updates/IMG_20190714_155508.jpg http://www.ijonsson.se/tr2/photos/updates/IMG_20190714_155523.jpg
  5. I would go for the liquid sealant, so much better than tape, and it has a bit of thread locking effect as well.
  6. Fuel pipe from pump/filter goes in front of engine and hasn't any lagging, fuel pipe between carbs is the old rigid type above. Engine is a lowport but an TR3 block. Our fuel, all types can hold up to 5% Ethanol. Regarding electric pump was just a thought to keep flow high regardless of engine revs. I have a new, but old type of radiator, with hole for starting crank. I have extra spotlights but they are placed to the sides. The water pump is, if I recall right from Moss, and the 5-vane type. The electric fan keeps temperature down at low speed, but not as low as running at 60 mph without electric fan working. I have a modern type of thermostat and reduced area in the by-pass.
  7. Well, summer temperatures in Sweden at last, and with that some, probably, fuel issues in the TR2, plugs look nice and fuel consumption is approximately 28 mpg. Nothing serious, but running slow at narrow roads is causing a bit of misfire after a while. I have put in a duct from behind the grill up to the carbs but no duct fan. What I want to ask is if anyone has tried put in a heat shield below the carbs, it will not make much difference to hot air below the bonnet, but would take away some radiation heat. Another heat related issue I've been considering is what good an electric water pump would do? I already have an electric pushing fan installed.
  8. What do you know, I also have one of those brackets in my "left over box".
  9. I bought bezels and domed glasses from Holden
  10. Am I missing something? why don't use the pegs for the tonneau/hood for the hood stick cover as well? /Inge
  11. This is how I did it, there is a supporting plate behind the rubber with about the same shape.
  12. Will do that, new Lockheed MC has a slight leak in clutch piston, so original MC will be refurbished soon.
  13. Tom Mull is right, mine at the TR2 are brass and all square in shape, a similar one to the one shown is still in a box of surplus parts.
  14. The hinge looks like my TR2 door hinges
