    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.

    4 to 5 speed gearbox change

    I'm not aware of anyone who has successfully fitted a 4x4 derived LT77 into a TR7 before, I would certainly be interested to learn of one because the 4x4 variants have a much more readily available supply of spares and rebuild support. Remember the input shafts, gear ratios and quite a few other details I'm told are different on a Land Rover box to those found on a 2wd car, not least because they were engineered for use in conjunction with a transfer box of course. I understood that it is far from simple to replace a 5 -speed TR7 LT77 with an LT77 from a 4x4 - let alone all the necessaries mentioned above to convert from a 4-speed. Bell - housing , clutch, prop shaft, rear axle and diff ratio (3.45:1 - I think... in 5-speed compared to 3.63:1 in 4-speed) are all different. Gearbox mount, bushings, remote, selector stick, speedo, speedo drive will also need changing as well. There might be other little details, that's off the top of my head. Keep us posted on how you get on!

    Making brake pipes - metric connections?

    They are indeed metric , I simply used the ones off the shelf at Halfords on my 1979 TR7 V8. I'm running SD1 callipers and drums but absolutely no reason why they should be different to standard TR7 ones. https://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/garage-equipment/fuses-electricals-fixings/halfords-brake-pipe-unions-metric-male https://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/garage-equipment/fuses-electricals-fixings/halfords-brake-pipe-unions-metric-female

    TR Register National 2018

    One of the stand out moments of the arena this year was the pleasure of having so many TR7s / 8s joining us on Saturday afternoon. I can't remember the last time we had such a big and varied selection, so thank you Christopher and all those wedge owners for taking the time to bring them in and chat with us. The TR7 Sprint in that vibrant red really caught my eye and was a close contender of my car of the show, that honour in the end though was bestowed upon the TR8 Drag Car in Alec's memory.
