  1. Hi RobH & Lebro, The battery is getting charged properly and the ignition warning light behaves as normal. I have kept the old ammeter and will carry out your suggestions. Thanks David
  2. Hi, Hopefully you will see two attachments: the first shows the instructions and the second what I believe is the wiring diagram. Without the engine running there is a slight discharge. Regards David TR Wiring incl headlamps Sheet1.pdf 27021903.PDF
  3. Hi, Some time ago I replaced the dynamo with a 65 amp ammeter. Following advice I replaced the +/-30amp ammeter with a +/- 60amp unit and wired as the instruction that came with the alternator from Revington. The ammeter never shows any positive charge but only a very small negative discharge. I wonder what is going on and why I changed the ammeter? Should the wiring be different to show both charge and discharge? Regards David
  4. Hi Guys, My windows have never fitted the screen angle. At the International a few years ago I bought some TR4/TR4a replacements in better condition with a view to replacing them when time permitted but I noted that they were to the same shape. One member earlier showed a diagram with TR6 and TR4 patterns and guess what they are for a TR6! B....! Regards David
  5. Hi, I used the original 4a capping and soft top fixing clamps with the supporting frame landing on MGB supports. It works well enough. Regards David

    Headlights After several years of putting up with candle power headlights I have decided to upgrade and include a relay kit. There seem to be two main types - Super White Xenon Gas Lamps and 60/55w halogen. Any advice will be welcomed d2
  8. Hi Keith, I believe that you solved the problem. Today I offered up the cable to the back of the speedo and gently pushed in the cable end. So far all seems to be working accurately and without noise with the knurled locknut not attached. Thanks David
  9. Thanks Alan and Keith, I have attempted to reinstall the cable into the back of the unit. Again all ran well, quietly , and with the correct speed for say 5 miles. Then as before the wobble commenced and a noise came from the speedo. I also noticed that the indicated speed was too low. Regards David
  10. Thanks for the info and link Iain. Regards David
  11. Hi, The needle in my speedo has wobbled around since I purchased the car many years ago and so recently I took the decision to replace the cable from the gearbox. The old part had plenty of oil around the inner cable. The new cable appeared to be sealed and so no attempt was made to inject oil between the outer sleeve and the inner cable. I ran the car for some 15 miles and the needle gave a steady speed. Then the speedo started wobbling again and the speedometer ran with a distressed noise. Should I attempt to inject oil into the back of the speedometer or is there an
  12. Hi Guts, Thanks for the replies. The engine mounts were bought from Moss and appeared to be the same as the ones replaced. I did try a search but obviously input incorrectly as nothing found. I will look at the LR mounts mentioned. Regards d2
  13. Hi, I have just put my engine back in the TR4a on to two new rectangular engine mounting blocks and notice that one of my circular air filters is resting on the inner wing. This was not the case before I removed the engine! What have I done? I recall mention of a recommendation to use mounting blocks from a Land Rover. Any advice would be most welcome. Thanks d2
  14. Hi, It is the bearing sleeve that I was thinking about; Haynes refers to high melting point grease. David
  15. In the March Issue of TRAction was a very interesting article on suitable oils for gearboxes and overdrives. I wonder if there is similar advice for modern greases suitable for clutch release bearings? TR4a nut David
