    Scam alert

    Hi Graham and others, I am currently in an email exchange with Jay. He is a fully paid up member of the TR Register and appears to be a genuine buyer, albeit young and of a different generation to most of the TR Register membership. I think the difference in style of communications as a result of that has been part of the problem and I am asking questions to ascertain his motivations and to ensure he is as genuine as he sounds on his correspondences to myself and Jo. Bank transfers to the younger generation are a common way of paying for large ticket items and with modern banking apps, you can transfer many thousands of pounds via mobile phone whilst stood on someones driveway. I too use this method over the cold sweat of dangerously carrying large amounts of cash for buying big ticket items. So far in the current conversation there are no indications that he is a scammer to me, but clearly has a rather over- keen and unorthodox way of going about purchasing a car. He has expressed to us in the office his disappointment with how the transactions via this club have so far played out. I'll update you when I reach a firm conclusion. I would be happy to hear from anyone who has had actual physical dealings with Jay that have raised concern. Christmas greetings.

    New Search?

    Hi Dave, Click the search box and it will expand to give you a list of options. To search a particular forum, simply go to that forum, click search and choose "Search in:> This forum" from the dropdown. It will show results based on keywords so that's why you might have multiple posts from the same thread show up.

    Forum rule 4.1.4

    Data Protection Act, since 1998 when the specific clauses for under 18's were first added I believe. Implemented of course by the GDPR as well.
  4. Wayne, thanks for fixing the apostrophe in "Members' Websites".

    Scam alert

    We are investigating these concerns. The individual is a paid up member of the TR Register but we are currently making enquiries, as no evidence of wrong doing as yet been presented. Those that have raised concerns have suggested a dealer may be posing as a private individual in this case, but no evidence has yet been presented. We'll report back on our findings.

    Where is the like button on this forum?

    This had me scratching my head for a while, but it should now be resolved. What I did not realise is that although all the permissions were set correctly, there was another setting in quite a different part of the forum admin for setting a limit on how many reactions groups of users could have. It was set stupidly low, or to 0. This explains why everyone was merrily using it when we launched the new version and then it disappeared for some and not others! Now all set to unlimited and should be operational for all.

    4 to 5 speed gearbox change

    Hi ya Steve, great to see you posting unrivalled expertise on here! Are you suggesting above that you are able to fit Land Rover 4x4 LT77s into our 5-speed TRs at S&S as a simple bolt in conversion as well? If so, this is exciting news surely, as we don't need to bother with these more scarce 17A and 19A boxes anymore? I stand corrected on the 5 -speed diff ratio. My spare CWP is 3.45:1 and came out of a 2 litre originally - hence the confusion in my brain, silly boy.

    What headlights to upgrade to

    I simply use the Rimmers Hella Halogen upgrade with Halfords super brilliant bulbs inside - still good after years of night rallies and Round Britain Runs !! If you are increasing the wattage substantially then it's a good idea to relay your headlamps. It takes the strain off the original wiring by passing a lower current draw through the open cage switch and also helps to prevent that green fur that builds up on the contacts.

    4 to 5 speed gearbox change

    Personally I would stick with the 4 - speed unless you are doing long European autobahns or track days. Its a rare car in that form now and you will find it perfectly capable. I did the Round Britain Run in a 4spd TR7 and it did very nicely indeed.
