  1. Hi Stuart, if the old rack needs to be longer because it is mounted higher does that mean if I use a later chassis and a later rack to suit it wont need the inner rods changing ? Regards Ron
  2. Hi Stuart, thanks for the reply, is this the part that the track rod ends screw on to ? part number 128023 in the rimmers book ? Regards Ron
  3. Hi all, on my new rebuild (mark 2, productivity is up this year ) I scrapped the old early chassis as it was full of rust and I picked up a good late tr4 chassis, I intend to use all the old running gear but I need to change the steering rack which I have obtained. I read about the different lengths and when compared side by side the later one is shorter, can I use the old pin and balls so that it is compatible with the old steering gear ? Regards Ron
  4. Hi all, I am thinking of doing something different with the rear seat, it would seem its only function would be as a hood frame receptacle. As mine didn't come with any trim anyway I thought I would do something practical in this area, I know it wont be authentic but I would like some ideas of what could be done, with photos if anybody has got any. Regards Ron
  5. cheers all for the replies

    Hi all, Engine rebuild time, I'm using the the original pistons and liners, all within tolerance with new rings. I marked all the liners to match the pistons and also the way they faced but I seem to remember someone suggesting that it is better to turn them 90 degrees if so what are the pluses and minuses of this ? Regards Ron
  11. thanks for the replies, it would seem I can cut them out and insert new ones, I was thinking of using sealant Rodger but thanks for the thought, happy christmas to all Regards Ron
  12. Hi all, I need to replace 2 pushrod tubes on a TR4 head which have rusted through, are they pressed in or are they just pushed in and flared to seal ?. I am preparing the head for unleaded conversion and so I have complete access. Regards and seasons greetings Ron
