  1. Thanks Ian, Tony managed to contact me okay. Hope your well. Regards Mike.
  2. Hi Tony, just spotted your Ad in Classifieds. I have a Tr5 bonnet for sale if your still looking. Couldn't reply in adverts section to your request. Mike Hazlewood.
  3. I may be able to help you. I will have a look tomorrow but I think I have a low compression head from a stripped North American Engine. Mike
  4. I understand a number of Morgan owners use that tyre on there cars. Sensibly priced at £75 each fitted and balanced, look right on the car, correct size as original and highly recommended to me by tyre fitting company I've used for 30 years. Also had a set on my TR4.
  5. Hi, just had new tyres Continental 165/80x15 fitted to my TR5 rims/wheels 15"x4.5". No inner are tubes required.
  6. Many thanks Richard. I am due to pick up my wheels from being stove enameled on Saturday so I shall look at the marking. My wheels are off my friends TR250 which he imported from the USA recently. The wheels were fitted with 205 tyres ' a bit big I think !!! ' 3 fitted without tubes 1 with, but suspect this had had a puncture. Having spoken to a few people with TR5/250's with steel wheels fitted, some have tubes fitted others don't. I have a very good tyre fitter who will also confirm what is correct. Again thankyou for your reply. Mike
  7. Question, I am refitting original 4.5 x 15" steel wheels to my TR5 with Rostlye trims. The valves holes in the wheels are bigger 15mm instead of standard 13mm as on most wheels. This of course is not a problem as Land Rovers still have the larger hole and valves are readily available. The question is where TR5 wheels original fitted with innertubes?. I know the earlier cars had tubes fitted because the wheel rim was riveted to the centre of the wheel and air leaked especially when old. There was also a question as to if the rim on a TR5 was suitable for tubeless tyres due to the roll on the r
  8. Hi Tom, have a set of 7inch wolfrace wheels repainted in anthracite shop with Yoko tyres with very little use.
  9. Having had both breather pipes fitted to engines belonging to both TR2-TR3/3a. I was led to believe that the curved one was fitted at some stage as a modification in the TR3 production to allow easier access for the removal of the oil filter canister.
  10. Belated Birthday wishes Dave, its looks as though you had an excellent Day which clearly involved a lot of celebrating with fine food and drink. Just another normal day with Jane looking after you. Mike.
  11. Pete Cox for gearbox and overdrive unit. First class service. Redditch, Worc's. Also has someone who does engine builds for him.
  12. Just looked at the photo closely and noticed the Lakes rally plaque was 2014.
  13. I purchased the car from Holmes Chapel in Cheshire Nov 74. The car was white on wires no Surrey and was in pretty good condition. I believe the car was originaly purchased by a serviceman in the forces who was stationed in Germany and re imported when 12 months old and then registered in Cornwall. The car was always RHD. I have many photo' s of the car whilst in my 20 year ownership and sold the car to purchase an e type jaguar. The ownership of Tr's did not stop as I also owned a Tr3a which bought in 1975 and still own and also a TR5 which I still own. Is that a recent picture of PRL and doe
  14. I owned this car for some 20 years from Nov1974 to Nov 94. I believe to car is still owned by a Register member and was seen on the lakes tour many years ago. Be good to catch up with the current owner.
  15. I have a LHD TR6 for sale. Runs, drives but requires restoration. Very solid chassis body and panels. Very good interior and carpets and a number of new parts fitted including radiator,alternator, starter motor, brake master cylinder etc. Unable to access adverts for some reason. Long standing register member. Please contact me re queries. Mike
