  1. ARP lube easily available on ebay Bob.
  2. Those oil control rings are a bugger to get right, they so easily want to slip one end over the other. Do make sure that does not happen ! Bob.
  3. This is the type of thing I use, it screws into a threaded boss welded to the steel pipe in the bottom hose run. All the usual suspects sell them (the switch & the pipe) Bob. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253043650850?hash=item3aea93b122:g:fwEAAOSwnkpa5z7W
  4. Iain. No not the standard rheostat, but a 100 ohm wire wound "potentiometer" I used one like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391584895037?hash=item5b2c47503d:g:IQQAAOSwLF1X9WZQ Then modified the spindle to match the "PANEL" knob I had Bob
  5. Good point, I did have grind a bit off 2 of mine Bob
  6. Just a dot of silicon in the gap of the viton seal, then as you squeeze it between the metal parts of the seal the gap reduces to zero. see this for the best instructions@ Mad Marx splitseal.pdf Bob
  7. I think it could be any of the helical cut gears loosing a tooth. Recommend a three bearing countergear when you re-build, & don't use cheap bearings anywhere on it ! Bob.
  8. I was going to do that, buy found that the later springs were a smaller diameter, which meant also replacing the caps on all of them, & that the springs did not locate nicely in the cylinder head. Tests showed that the standard 4A springs were no softer, (or stronger) than my original TR3 ones. Bob
  9. What Mick said. I had no means of measuring bolt stretch, so I used the torque setting given in the booklet that came with them. Don't have that to hand, & I won't guess. As I recall they can be fitted either way round, but could be wrong. Bob.
  10. Wellseal, & stuff as much felt (pre-soaked) down the slots as you can, leaving some proud. Bob
  11. I use a single flat speaker enclosure which I had attached to the underside of the battery box, so it hovers just above the gearbox tunnel. Bob
  12. My ideal would be my Olympus OM1 with Digital back. ! I have a Panasonic Lumix something, it's very good in auto mode, but far too complicated to try to use manualy. Bob
  13. I would say you had a very lucky day ! Bob.
  14. Been watching that all day. I was supposed to be there today, but got sick (Covid type symptoms, but PCR test said not covid ?), so couldn't make it. Will probably watch tomorrow as well. Thanks for posting. Bob.
  15. Stuck needle valve in the float chamber. mine used to do this very occasionaly, a sharp tap with the "T" key always sorted it. (TR4 owners may have to use a small spanner etc) Bob.
  16. +1 for the CM seal. but must be fitted carefully. Bob
  17. It will limit how much the car rolls on corners, but also encourages understeer. Fixed by fitting a rear one as well. (I did ) Bob.
