  1. Since the time, those pesky vise-grips are still clamping on any flexible hose within reach !
  2. Hi have a pair of ugly looking TAs for cleanup. What would be the best dipping solution before finishing with jet and wire brush ? Surface isn't a problem, hollow parts are so I would need something drastic. Some pointers please. As always S
  3. Hola, I still have one leftover in similar condition with studs, new gaskets and new spacers. Must have the bolts somewhere. Not ported. Yours for £70 including postage. PM if interested.

    Cheers

    TR5 parts

    https://www.tr-register.co.uk/forums/index.php?/forum/53-parts-and-cars/ I would start with TRR: "Classifieds" is for anything and you can choose your category (not user friendly though) or "For Sale, Swap or Wanted, maximum value £250 " (user friendly but capped). In general very good and quality response albeit limited audience especially for TR5 parts.
  5. 3M OUTDOOR double-sided tape is anything proof
  6. Ebay: type "Desmo" or "Barnacle" tax disc holder
  7. That's assuming rebuild done by a pro, as he intends to do. DIY job is half of the above figures of course
  8. There's always a wide price difference between 86/87 mm (~£ 250) and 89 mm (~£400). You can't find 89mm for less than that simply because there's less demand hence smaller production.
  9. For a basic rebuild you're in the 3K range. 4K range with some exotic upgrades. 5K and above for top notch job
  10. Having gone through this I came to the conclusion that the simplest and most effective solution to reduce chassis flex is to add a second breast plate just like on TR6.

    eBay scams

    It's internet gents, most of it is trash.
  12. Pratical, good luck to track oil leaks on a black engine and easier to work in a engine bay with a color that reflects light rather than absorbs it.
  13. Shaky arrangement. This is the way it should be, no compromise. If you need to rotate the engine more than 90* make sure you use an hollow bar as an extension to the supplied bar or else you'll be painfully reminded Newton's laws of motion. And wear safety shoes...
