    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.

  1. Thanks Jose, will do. thanks. To all the TR people going to Pamplona, Have a safe journey and drive carefully. See you there. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  2. Hi Jose, I spoke too soon. I just drove up the road to fill up ready for the trip and the, I assume the angle drive has gone again. So it's back to the drawing board, again. Kind Regards, Dave from Spain
  3. Hi Roger, Strange that, I remember there was always a small sachet of red rubber grease in the Girling packet. Economising or knicked? Kind Regards, Dave from a sunny Spain after the "Gota Fria"
  4. Hi Jose, Sorry to hear that. After how many kms did it break? Was it another repro or a soldered repaired one like mine? As I am leaving for Pamplona, probably approx 1800 kms round trip next week , I am hoping that my soldered angle drive will last.Otherwise it is back to the drawing board, again. We shall see! Kind Regards, Dave from a cooler rainy Spain
  5. Hi, The 69 inch cable is what you need If you can get an extra inch one probably better.. I route it from the angle drive along the lip of the floor, curve it over the gearbox bell housing through the hole/grommet in the cover then up to the speedo. If it is a repro angle drive you may find that the cable is turning in the part that goes to the gearbox. See my post above. I have lost count how many times I have had the angle drive on and off, I have got it to a fine art now taking the seat out, pulling the carpet out and removing the cover plate. 10 minutes. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  6. Hi Nigel, I have had two of the repro angle drives both developed the same problem the cable turned in the part that goes into the gearbox.I contacted Alan T but not offering a repair service , maybe in the future. I had to resort to o ther sorts of "cures" such as soldering (not very good at that) , epoxy resin but after about 20 30 kms the cable worked loose. In the end a mate filled up where the cable goes into the cog with solder. That seemed to work though early days, the big test will be when I drive to Pamplona for the European meeting on the 20th September. Give it a try. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  7. domain registered on 14 August. According to whois.com Regards, Dave from Hot sunny Spain
  8. Hi Kevo, One other cause may be the rubber pipe which takes the excess water from the plenum and drains it into the wing void. either perished or may have come off. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  9. Hi all, Getting packed ready for the trip to Osnabruck. As you can see my route is the oppsite of Andrews, Google tells me it is 2,250 Kms from my house in the Costa Blanca. and should be 2,250 kms back again, we shall see. This is what I am packing for now. More to go inside the boot. Kind Regards, Dave from a hot sunny Spain
  10. Just ordered mine to put on my TR6, ready for the drive from Spain to Osnabruck in June. Kind Regards, Dave from hot and Sunny Spain
  11. Hi all, I have a few wheels the ones fitted to my current six which shows the part number and wheel size and others which I assume are not stamped. Also stamped is F6D and another, Dunlop logo and 981 I would assume that it was on later CR series TR6. Kind Regards, Dave from a sunny Spain

  14. Hi all, Does anyone have the all the dimensions and pictures of the items and how thick should the metal be as I am making a pair for the MX-5 seats, which should be here on Sunday. I would be grateful if some nice person could send me them,. I did have a look at the CD Rom but couldn't make head nor tale of it. Kind Regards, Dave from sunny Spain.
