    CP1

    CP1 was built up "off tools" thus did not make it down the production line. CP2 was the first TR5 to have that distinction. Nice car to own though. Alan G
  2. Eddie this was the reply I made to a chap who was having wiring problems to the wiper switch. Worked for him. Recently I changed the dash on a TR6 I bought last October and was extremely careful (phone video taken) making sure that when I went to fit this switch again the wires would be in the correct positions. Hmm not so simple. The PO had put the wires on in the wrong order and upon re-assembly with the wires back on in the order they cam off in I had normal wipe in position 2, nothing in position 1 and nothing in position zero evidently. I checked the TR6 brown bible and discov

    Wiper woes

    Ian are you sure you have the 4 wires to the wiper switch on the correct terminals?

    Really?

  5. Ken I went down the same road recently and found that most filters do both applications nowadays. Yes I too found the text you have shown above but after trying to find a specific petrol example I gave up. Times change and that info is now "old hat" and as I have said specific petrol ones are unobtanium. I fitted a Bepco example after much searching. I wouldn't worry too much about what you have in the car at present. Alan G
  6. Geoff 1st thing is to establish you have power at the fuel pump, I presume its a standard Lucas pump? This is easily done using a simple light bulb, like the type fitted to the rear lights. If you have power to the pump then that rules out any fuse issue so basically it must be the pump itself. However I for one can'r remember a Lucas pump just giving up like that, cavitation yes but not a total seizure, let us know please? Regards Alan G

    72 Blue

    However if its a later 1972 TR6 the comm plate is situated on the passenger side (RHD) b-post, visible when the passenger door is opened. Alan G
  8. Yes on the column Paul for all TR6's Alan G.
  9. Whats going on? Looks like the venerable and brilliant Michelin 165 HR15 XAS is no longer being produced ? It would appear that to cater more for the Porsche 912 and 911 market the current model is an XAS 165 VR 15 ? Even if you wanted a set of 165 HR 15 CN36 tyres these too are VR rated now? This info was taken from the Longstone tyre website and must be correct as I have a friend who wanted a set of HR XAS for his concours TR6 and was informed that they were now VR or nowt? Does everything have to be governed by the "last penny" policy or by the Moss "yes we have one of those
  10. Sad news indeed about your Dad. We too went on this trip and well worthwhile, looks like you arrived at Melle just after us as cousin Derek's saffron TR6 was just before you in arrival shot. Good memories of that trip and even more poignant ones for you. You have a lovely video there. Alan G
  11. Hi John After collecting far too many original TR250 and TR6 articles over the last 40 years I have an American article which is quite specific with regard to converting a manual carb TR6 into an automatic type. I can send you a copy if you send me your email address via a PM if you want? regards Alan
  12. Nice fit now, well done. Alan
  13. Hi Jase Can you supply a side elevation pic please that shows the arms in what should be a locked position? Alan
