    4A LED gauge bulb threads

    just received some different LED's from ClassicCarLeds and they fit in both the new and original bulb holders without any issue. The thread profile is also seems to be a good match to an original bulb - go figure? I can only assume the Bettercarlighting versions could be from a bad batch

    I wonder if the new individual holders I got are old stock or the problem has not been sorted - part number is 161-915, so it must sourced from Moss. Alf

    Got it , thanks Stuart. Alf

    Wow, this forum is great with so many informed contributors. The plot thickens, but there seems little that can br done about, but purchase additional bulbs from different sources and hope that some of them fit. Clearly Bob and others have got them to work quite satisfactorily. I have now dismembered a broken bulb and using the base only with pliers trying to install and determine what has to be modified in the holder This is becoming a mindless time consuming and expensive dash bulb upgrade... cheers Alf

    TR4A - some trivia "while I'm in there" questions

    Thanks Stuart, What's the difference between the two options for item 17 p/n 148696 and UKC345? Does this item connect to the relay? Do I need17, if I only go from Relay to switches I don't have a reverse light switch, so assume item 16 p/n 147777 is not required. I checked the TRF and it shows only p/n 131339 (Moss dwg item 18) being required. Cheers, Alf

    uh oh more learning - will await new bulbs and see if any fudging required. Thx Alf

    Hi Bob, a brief update. I learned from Duncan that many of the new E10 threads are metric, which I presume could be what accounts for the difference in root diameter. If one runs into this problem, the suggestion is to open the thread "tongue" in the holder a tad (dremel I guess). Will have to try it when I get bulbs to replace all the one's I destroyed. Alf

    Thanks Stuart. I'll look into a new harness from TRF - may be on sale now. I assume with OD harness in the tunnel, to remove the cover, the process would be to disconnect at the switches and solenoid every time? Cheers, Alf

    Thanks Roger. Brackets black then. OD harness though may be more of a challenge - it looks all so original now, so length will definitely have to be carefully assessed. Cheers
  10. Hi All, I am in the process (though slowly) of re-assembly after drivetrain rebuild, incl Radiator re-core, new electric fan with narrow belt conversion, and complete engine, transmission, OD, driveshaft work. I have a few questions please: a) What colour are the radiator mounting brackets supposed to be - black or body colour? b) My OD harness as removed, passes through the front bulkhead and is routed down to the lockout switches by draping over the bell housing with the speedo cable. I understand the harness is supposed to exit from the switches through the hole in the G/B cover under the dash. What is the correct routing? Is it possible that the Malines built cars were done stock this way? PS a clarification - the brass fitting was the PO's effort to re-route the scuttle drain away from the behind the wing into the engine bay instead c) I have purchased a new Clayton replacement heater which is a 3 speed. Is the early TR6 2 speed switch a direct replacement for the single speed TR4A switch? Many thanks, Cheers, Alf

    Clutch Adjustment

    Per the OP salutation - thank you learned Gentlemen, as I learned something today. Alf

    Clutch Adjustment

    good point Pete, but I have no answer to the TR6 configuration. It's just Intuitively, the continuous rotation of the TOB seems wrong, and the spring helps against that.. Cheers, Alf

    Clutch Adjustment

    +1 on retaining the spring on the 4A, to avoid the TOB rotating continuously. On this basis I am not yet convinced that .300" does not provide for excess slop Alf

    Thx Bob, I had a quick browse of their site. For the gauge bulbs, what is prevailing consensus; use the GLB 987 E10 MES in Flat profile (8 SMD - smaller) or the raised version (5 larger SMD) Cheers, Alf
