  1. M 1970 CP TR6PI has Lumenition Magnetronic electronic ignition fitted inside the 25 Lucas distributor, I want to remove it but I couldn't release the rotor disk from the cam, I loosened the screw holding the cam to the distributor shaft thinking it might help, which it seemed to as the rotor came away. My question is can I simply retighten the cam retaining screw (No. 15 in most of the exploded diagrams), does it engage itself in a slot or something on the top of the distributor drive shaft or do I have to adjust it to retime the ignition once it has been disturbed? Can't find anything about this in any of the manuals... Thanks, Chris
  2. On the M3 / M27 yesterday followed an emerald green TR6 for a while. I'm not a copper and would never interfere in other's business but couldn't help noticing: - The oversize tyres protruded beyond the wheel arches, - The car was M registered but had a black numberplate. _ The driver was wearing massive earphones, clearly visible through the rear window of his Surrey top...! I believe the maximum fine for the latter infringement is a £5,000 fine... Otherwise the car, and driver, looked ok, but too highly modified for my taste...
  3. The car in question is not ' exactly how it left the factory in every minute detail'. Comparing it to my unrestored 1970 J reg TR6 that I have owned since 1972 I notice the following as being unoriginal: No 1970 CP TR6 was ever fitted with a spoiler. No TR6 ever had full length trim lines. No TR6 was ever fitted with an emergency bonnet release. The front number plate is mounted on brackets below the bumper, not on its leading face. The oil filter housing is painted grey mottled finish. The oil breather flame trap is natural metal. The rubberised part of the drivers carpet is oversized. The vacuum pipe from the metering control unit to the central throttle body is routed through a clip on the rear rocker cover stud. This vacuum pipe is not bundled with the injector pipes. The tool roll and its contents are incorrect. It would be interesting to investigate the fuel pump, clutch release bearing, inside the distributor, and the rear shock absorbers. The spot lights and air horn are after market extras. Call me pedantic - yes - but this is not the car it is claimed to be...
  4. I fitted a new alternator and fan belt to my 1970 TR6PI, now there's a loud whistling noise from the alternator. The old fan belt was smooth, the new one is toothed. The belt tension is correct and the noise is not coming from the water pump. The alternator cooling impeller looks just like the old one. The whistle is loudest on pick up to about 2000rpm then quietens, it sounds quite cool, people think the engine is supercharged...! Does the panel have any ideas? Chris, Wessex Group
