    Mainly TR6's. I am now down to one of them now, I have totally restored five of them three to concours condition, the rest were to a high standard, restoring them mainly by myself. All information and photos about my TR6s' and the restoration of them are on my websites www.tr6pi.com www.tr6pi.co.uk www.tr6pi.info Also on the site is a buyers guide which hopefully will help potential buyers of their TR6 with a little advice.

    Engine Noise.

    Hi Phil, Could it be the speedo cable near the angle drive? That is on the drivers side. Just a suggestion. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain

    Hi Tom, Thanks for the nice comments, Tom. The engine problem should never have happened, caused a lot of unnecessary expense. Kind Regards, Dave from a sort of sunny Spain

    TR6 Steering wheel 15 vs 14,5 inch - Advises

    It is difficult to get your arm through a 14.5" steering wheel to put the key in the ignition, it drove me mad, so I changed mine back to a 15", so much better and correct for my car year. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain

    Vredstein Tyres

    Any good, Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  6. Hi Dave, I see from an older post that you fitted a top tinted windshield to a TR6. I just wanted to know if this was the one supplied by Moss and if you had any problems with its fitment.

    Thanks!

      Hi,

      Regarding the top tint screen. Yes it was purchased from Moss and it was fairly easy to install, really takes two people, one to push the glass and the other to pull the corded seal out on to the screen.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

      Dave from Spain

    TR6 LEFT STANDING FOR 10 WEEKS

    I always leave the ignition and pump running for up to a minute before turning the key. Seems to work for me. Dave from sunny Spain

    Fuel & temp gauges, plus overdrive - earth leak??

    Hi Steve, Good to hear from you. I've often thought about you and COV. Though I still have the water colour of it hanging on wall in my "office", so never far from my mind. Here is a picture of it painted by Steve Fitton as a gift for my 50th birthday in 1992. Life is well over here in Spain. It is still too hot for me, though.

    Misfire after new metering unit installed

    Hi Phil, I had this problem a couple of weeks ago. I took the injector off and no fuel. I run the engine, with the fuel pipe in a glass jar, and eventually fuel started to appear I put the injector back on and it was fine. . I had to do this on 1, 5, and 6 injectors it took a while for the fuel to come through. It was a big air lock in the system. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Dave from sunny Spain

    Tyres options

    I put a set of Vredestein Sprint classic 165 x 80 x 15 HR 86H tyres on my TR6pi. They handle very well. Regards, Dave from a Hot Sunny Spain
