  1. Still asking myself what did I wrong? I can't imagine that I used too much force while pulling it. they made yours looking like the original in high quality or does it look different?
  2. Decided to try a last repair with a crimper. It looks not that bad.
  3. After spending some time on my new old boat in Holland I had a look today at my TR and removed the old cable. exactly the same failure than the last one, both lastet just for month. The bonnet catch alignment itself ist smooth and easy to move. What is the reason for that and how -if possible - can I prepare the new one against doing it the same again? I still think that it could be a failure of production.
  4. photo please? My one is not fitted as the original route. My one is fitted (since 1985) with the cable following the front-line of the battery. And that cable with that route lasted for 35 years. only the last two were real one-hit-wonders and I do not why. Have just ordered the third cable for this year, grrr.
  5. same with me. My emergency release works pretty well. So I guess, that my bonnet-latch-alignment is ok. I have never ever any problems with opening the bonnet. But now two cables in one season. I did not change anything, just the cables.
  6. Hi there, back after more than one year due covid 19 and restoring an old ship I am still among the TR6-drivers. Today I did only the 2nd trip in 2021. But I need the second cable for the bonnet release this year too. Always the same: pulling the cable and it do not release the bonnet but overstretched more ore less the outer cable instead. Both sets (outer and inner cable) were from MOSS. Is it possible to get higher quality cables somewhere else?
  7. As far as I know is the car a leftover from a member of the "Rheinarmee" (British Army of the Rhine, BAOR) who was stationed in Germany during the 1970s. I guess that it was never ever an officially exported car.
  8. well, that idea popped up, that I drive the car over the channel (and cross the irish sea as well) and spend some days there. And on that way I could arrange some meetings with potentially buyers. The "pre-sales" would have to be done in advance, of course.
  9. or just a bad day? I am seriously thinking about selling my TR6 PI RHD. Here in Germany RHDs come cheaper than LHDs. I am wondering if it is better to bring the TR home and sell it in the UK? Stupid idea in brexit times?
  10. You will get the proof in hot summer conditions. With bad luck it will start to howl. But not necessarily. Knock on wood!
  11. Well, that reminds me on my trip to Sweden to a race in Karlskoga around 15 years ago when the clutch collapsed. First what gave up was the master. A former swedish rally-champion nearby gave me that of his wonderful 123GT (he gave it to me for free. from his own note 1 car. what a guy!). And it was different to my TR´s one (I cannot even remember if the Volvo one was a 7.5 and my one 7 or vice versa). But I do remember that there was no difference (it was with a B&B clutch). later I changed to a Sachs. There was no difference between them still.
  12. There is no Bosch equivalent available, I guess. Try that polish pump or find any else wich do not more than 100 l (or 22 uk gal) in an hour at 5 bar. The best way: it is winter, it is corona, it is ugly. So spend your nights with ebay and a lonely (and expensive) search for a 996.
  13. Be aware that the next problems will pop up then. Try a pump which is nearest to your old one.
  14. still do not understand why you want to uncrease the bore when your pump is gone. Maybe I got something wrong?
