    Here you go Nigel. Hope it helps. Sean Scan Brake Servo pages Haynes.pdf
  2. Hi Richard, I have an old pair of cards that you could probably use as templates, somewhere. PM me. Cheers, Sean
  3. Hi Andy, I replaced my boot floor, both sides and the lower inner valance and outer valance using plug welds. Worked very well.

    hood bag fitting

    Len, This is what I did on the inside. Mine is a Don cover and it has 3 elasticated straps with a square vinyl pad on the end of each. I fitted a female snap to each of the 3 vinyl tabs (if the cover is lying flat on the table, with the snap hollow facing up to you). I then fitted the corresponding three male snaps under the screws marked red in the pic. Note you can only see two of the three. The third one is the corresponding one on the drivers side to the one highlighted on the passenger side. You can see the black male snap already fitted on the passenger side, although I subsequently changed for chrome snaps. Don't know of a "correct" way but this works well for me. In fact I only ever attach the middle snap, as the two outer ones are hard to get to, and that holds the cover fine at all speeds. Hope this helps. Cheers, Sean
  5. Thanks All, What a great form this is! HAGWE Sean
  6. Thank you all for your input so far. I'm pretty sure it is not the UJ's as these are all new and greased (including the propshaft). I can find no manual play in the splines on the shafts. I have had them off again to check. When I rock the inner part of the drive shaft only, the play and noise (audible in the video) is still there and as I say above appears to be only in the passenger side of the diff. Roger, if its excess backlash, is this something that can be lived with, or is damage being done by ignoring it? What is the fix? Thanks again. Sean
  7. Evening All. I have knock (possibly better described as a clunk) from the drivetrain when I lift the clutch and the wheels start to move. I can also hear it at low speeds when releasing the clutch after changing gears 2 - 4. Cannot hear it at high speed. The car drives beautifully apart from this. Could this be the problem? The play seems to be only in the nearside diff yoke and I cannot detect any play in either side shaft splines or UJ's which are all new. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be here and what the fix might involve? The diff has not been rebuilt, but CTM replaced the seals and bearings about 5 years ago after which it sat in my garage during my re-build. Many thanks, Sean
  8. Thanks Waldi. Expensive bit of kit!
  9. Thanks Brian, That's good information. I do tend to have a heavy foot so that may have something to do with it. Thanks Waldi, do you have a link to the one that you installed? Rich, I think I'll stick with the standard tank for the moment, and hope to improve fuel economy Cheers, Sean
  10. I have done about 800 miles with a rebuilt engine and completely refurbished PI system (Neil F) but am only getting 18 - 19 mpg - getting about 145 miles before I need to re-fuel. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong? Many thanks, Sean
  11. Didn't know you were green fingered Roger. You've started something there!

    Bore condition

    Hi Ian, I'm no expert but they don't look too bad to me. Can I see honing marks in the 2nd pic, or have you rubbed with fine sandpaper? I see that the bores are already bored out to 60 thou so hopefully they dont need further boring. Cheers, Sean

    Exhaust Fitting

    Hi There, (do you have a name?) I have these. Hope they help. Sean
  14. Hi Stan, Have a look here https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/features/car-oscars-10-british-films-cars-stars/ Cheers, Sean
  15. A bit of Friday fun. Apologies to those who've seen this already in the members area. I had intended to post it only here but seem to have put it in Alec's Inn by mistake.
  16. Looks like it might need a bit of work on the side rails under the windows. No connection, just thought I'd share in case anyone is on the lookout for one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-TR6-hardtop/183790322313?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  17. As Mark says, the replacement panels fit relatively well. A tip that I found useful when replacing the lower inner valance was to leave the whole top of the outer panel in place until the new lower inner is in. This ensures that the whole rear remains rigid and in the correct position (assuming it was in the correct position before )
  18. Congratulations on your purchase Graham. It looks like a very nice car
  19. Hi David, You will have to pay VAT and duty on goods imported from the US. It is generally charged by the Royal Mail if goods arrive by post or by the courier company before releasing the goods. VAT is payable at the normal rate on the value of the goods including duty and is payable on all imports over £15. Duty is only payable on goods over £135 and charged at 2.5% So if for example your goods cost the equivalent of £140. you'd pay duty of 2.5% = £3.50 and VAT at 20% on £143.50 = £28.70 ie total of £172.20. If the value is less than £135, only VAT is payable at 20%. If you buy online (eg ebay) this is not mentioned. First I knew was when I got a card from the Royal Mail telling me they were holding my package pending payment. All the info is here. https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty Hope this helps. Sean
  20. Thanks for the response John, It was really about whether the oppressive restrictions in the old (new) rules which caused many to refuse to sign up have been removed/modified in a way that might be acceptable. Cheers, Sean
  21. Good work John, Brian and team and many thanks for the effort put in to this task. Looking forward to seeing the new forum rules and what has changed regarding the clauses which caused so many resignations. Are you able to give any preview of the changes or when will they be published? Thanks again, Sean
  22. Nice job. Are you using your bonnet as a work bench?
  23. Is the pump to PRV hose touching the body of the car? With my lucas set up, resonation is very loud if the pipe is resting on the bodywork at any point. Mine does because I have routed it behind the pump and across the wheel arch. Fixed this by putting a short length of 22mm plumbing pipe insulation around the pipe at the touching point to separate. Makes a big difference.
