    TR7 Turret

    Hi All, Not sure I am putting this in the correct, I thought the club ran a parts fund to make it possible for parts that go out of availability, can be re manufactured. The TR7 among many of its week points often need Turrets replaced and in fact the whole area of the inner flitches are a week point for metal worm. How do you get sponsorship going to get these type of parts re-manufactured ? Apologues if this is not the correct place to put such requests Mike
  3. Thanks for the information
  4. I know this might sound odd , but I had a problem of not getting a pedal, after much head scratching I found I tiny and I mean tiny pin whole in a brand new brake pipe. Before you go to far, just run your hands along all the pipe work, to see if you feel any leakage, I could not see it until after I made a new pipe and replaced it, but I did feel the brake fluid on the faulty pipe
  5. Hi All, I am looking to see if anyone has completed a front floor replacement on a TR7 Coupe, not sure where to start with taking the floor out in the correct way, I have replacement floor pans already. Can anyone help with a process and some pictures ? Thanks Mike

    SU Carbs

    Hi Folks Can anyone recommend a garage that is good with SU carbs in the Dudley / Wolverhampton area? Thanks Mike
  8. Thanks for your help ordering a kit to link both carbs on single cable
  9. Hi All, I am looking for some advice , I have a US 1969 TR6 that had been converted to right hand drive, during the conversion a set of HS6 SU have been fitted, the choke cable from the old cards does not reach the choke connector for the first SU (nearest the bulk head ) Given the cost of replacement cables can anyone advise which one is best to order? Thanks Mike

    Hi Folks I have a grinnall It runs 5 stud wheels, with modified SD1 strut mounts, the car is very twitchy and is pulling left, does any one have figures on how the toe in toe out should be set. Tyre pressures etc are all ok, as is all the front suspension as it has all been renewed also the powersteering rack has been reconditioned. Thanks Mike

    Hi Folks, Looking for advice, I have a Grinnal with the 5 stud conversion, it is really twitchy and I have replaced the strut tops with modified SD1 tops as per the originals fitted by Grinnall. Had the steering rack rebuilt, it has all new rubbers and bushes tracking redone after that. Any advice would be appreciated
  12. Hi Thanks for the note The inserts are ok its the rubber mount at the top that is the problem, do you run with normal TR7 ones or are they SD1 type with a bearing in them? Cheers Mike
  13. Hi Have a look at these people there work is very good with lots of options http://www.donhoods.com/ Mike
  14. Hi, I have a Grinnall with the 5 STUD wheel hubs. On the fromt suspension the strut mounts at the top of the suspension are past it. Can anyone confirm that these are SD1 units? Or tell me what they are likley to be Thanks Mike
  15. Hi Paul, Thanks for the pictures The bit I am struggling with fitting the throttle linkage, the linkage I have looks the same as yours, I cannot see how to mount it without it hitting the steering arm. There are two threaded holes on the manifold which I assume are its mount point but as I say it hits the steering arm did you have to modify yours? Thanks Mike
