  1. OK its now running OK. Timing sorted. As for rev hang. It was the linkage. There are 3 main springs. I was only using 2. At the pedal, and at the swivel bracket under the carb. I have now taken of the one below the carbs and attached the one from the top of the linkage to the rocker cover. That sorted it. Easy pedal and nice rev drop. I will now get it on the rolling road and depress myself by finding out my 150hp engine only produces 130 ha ha ha. Sure as hell it will be that way.
  2. I've set it to 12° on idle. Thats all I can do for now. It was at 18. I have bad rev hang. I'm going to go through the comete linkage to check somethings not sticking. If its still hanging, ill have a look at the carb settings.
  3. Hi guys. I have electronic ignition with vacum disconnected, PI cam, triple webbers on my TR6. I have a strobe light. Would i be in the correct ballpark of 11° static and 33° total at 4500rpm Thanks guys. No need to be exact, but would this be a sensible starting point.
  4. Well I've set static at 12°. It was at about 18. Still getting bad rev hang. Ill need to go through the linkage from start to finish. It may be just the cable needing oiled. Start with the basics I guess.

  6. Did the new Dash idea pan out, there is nothing on your web page in regards to them?

  7. Luckily wheel alignments based on geometry then. I'm-:))) I'm teasing by the way.
  8. Thanks guys. I bought new 5mm metric countersunk screws. Drilled and taped. All now perfect.
  9. As I said, I know how to do the job guys, I only needed the measurements
  10. Hi guys. Thanks for the input. I have used the strung line before. It doesn't mater if the front or back is wider. The one thing that has to be determined is the rear wheel is running straight with no toe. As you all know, there are shims for correcting this. I can use basic geometry to check this prior to aligning the front. I will go for 3mm toe in. 1.5 on each wheel. Just have to get the front wheels on a very slippery surface. I have the car on ceramic tiles and engine oil. That lets the tire move nice and freely while adjusting. Thanks for giving me the toe in measurement. Appreciated.
  11. Oh one thing. Is that 3mm on each wheel or 3mm overall. Meaning 1.5mm per wheel
  12. Hi guys. Tomorrow i am going to do my wheel alignment using strings and measing tape. What the toe on the front. Is it 2mm toe out or........ Thanks
  13. thanks but i cant afford new parts. My dash has so far cost me 10 pounds. I am looking for a used item that's someone doesn't need and willing to sell for a good price. One cant help but hope eh.
  14. Good day guys. I am currently redoing my dash. I am installing a clock where the dimmer dial was. But i need a chrome 52mm clock. I honestly cant afford whats on fleebay or the likes and wondered if anyone has one in fair order in the shed they would consider selling. Also the chrome gauge ring on my rev counter is totally shot. If someone has a chrome rev counter or just a decent chrome ring, i would be very grateful on a good deal.
