  1. Not even a little "con" ? This forum managed to kill the 10th man. RIP
  2. Now that I have your attention... it's been a while that most of us have been struggling with the Register DOS-type steam search engine. While browsing one MGTF forum I came across the type of indexation I've been looking for on the Register forum, to no avail. So here is it: https://www.the-t-bar.com/forum/54-how-tos/25321-a-to-z-of-how-to-guides-pics-and-videos Could the co-coordinators take this onboard please ? Cheers
  3. I would definitely bang/pull the rear valance out without removing. The sill calls for replacement, you'll never get the folds back to shape
  4. This is what i'm looking for ! Thanks all
  5. As stated - something simple for test/trial where one can upload car pics and change the color of the body or part thereof, wheels, trims in one click ???
  6. I'd love to read that the leak isn't related to a bent front engine plate
  7. Found this schematic to illustrate Lebro's explanation.
  8. I blame it on customer education and the internet. Many new TR owners are still professionally active, spoilt and don't know about parts hardship back in the days. Between the immediately of getting your supply on the cheap in one-click with guarantee (cough) and after sale service (cough-cough) and spending hours and days scooting for OE - for a price, the maths are quickly done. It boils down to a business decision IMO. What you could do is to hookup with small suppliers focusing on quality and customer relationship i.e. TR shop and propose your parts there. They themselves are offering OE recon but they are struggling to respond to the demand so it's very much dependent on availability. The advantage is that you will benefit from the exposure, brand and marketing machine of a well established business and won't have to build your brand yourself.
  9. Just bring your knock-offs for re-chroming, they will grind and buff them nicely. My originals were completely shot with deep hammering marks and this is what it got back
  10. That what I didn't wanted to read. Fortunately it on primer so not a biggie, yet something i didn't wanted to do. No free lunch, ever... Thanks
  11. Gents, years of bumper-to-bumper driving has taken its toll on the front valance. Now that the car is at the paintshop i'm trying to find a redress because i can't refit the grille properly (see schematic). The sides are ok (where the cups are) but the whole lower section of the grille fools the valance. I miss at least 5 mm to be able to slide the grille in properly. Now trying to find a way to do it. I've tried bending the skirt of the valance to get some clearance but it comes back to shape so it's not the right way. Banging the flat of the valance doesn't work either, all it does is denting it and whacking on a long wooden across the flat doesn't work either as it rebounds. There should be a more structural and definite solution. So how ? Cheers

    Timing

    yes there's a mickey mouse gasket but you'll probably tear it while attempting to refit the dizzy gear so whatever RTV will do indeed

    Timing

    The key at the bottom doesn't "allow" for 180* difference because it's offset. Just make sure that the slot is pointing towards the #1 pushrod as per the pic with the larger part of the offset towards you As Roger mentions, it will take several attempts to get it smack in because the gear is on a spiral.
