  1. Hi all, thanks for your kind words of support and offers. Conrad has come to the rescue with the most solid looking spare wheel cover I’ve seen for a while. Friends and club members have been amazing. I in addition to the spare wheel cover for the 3, I have also been offered original TR5 grille, bumper , over riders, front panel and valence. Thanks to all. Kind regards Martin.
  2. Hi John, the TR3 is only cosmetic damage so should be straightforward. The 5 maybe borderline if chassis needs to come out for repair / replacement. However, I have salvage rights, so if insurers won’t cover it, I can buy it back do the labour myself and use the payout for parts, bodywork and paint.
  3. Hi Rob, no injuries other than to the cars and my brother in-laws pride. We were 2 miles from home on the way for a short holiday in Dorset when he rear ended me in my TR5. Unfortunately that has not fared so well as it may have sustained chassis damage.
  4. Anyone got a good spare wheel cover they are willing to part with? Not sure this will polish out!
  5. I have my system set so it runs at 100psi. It works fine and takes some of the stress off the Bosch type fuel pump which is working at the upper end of its design spec.
  6. I had a bit of a radical solution to this wanting to sort it properly as in normal times the car normally does 2 or 3 trips round Europe each year. I cut a hole in the boot floor behind the wheel arch and fitted a large swirl pot. This contains two Bosch style pumps. One is duty, the other is backup. I then attached cooling fins to the outside of the swirl pot so heat is removed from the fuel as you drive. If you then run into severe traffic on a hot day with low fuel as we did a few years ago in Strasbourg, you have coolish fuel in the tank to keep your pump happy. If you do cook a pump. A fl
  7. Hi Steven I have just had a rummage through my box of old injector collars. I have some of the design that are the same as yours. If you PM your address to me I will send you one out. Martin (Fred Millturn Parts)
  8. Hi Stephen. Are the linkage rods the aftermarket type? If so they are very hard to adjust and lock off. I can supply you with original spec linkage rods which will enable you to synchronise your butterflies properly without burning your hands on the hot exhaust manifold. Kind regards Martin (Fred Millturn Parts)
  9. Hi Andrew thats a familiar looking picture
  10. Hi all. My name is Martin Giles. Long time TR owner and member of the TR Register. I am on a bit of a mission to remake all of the the original spec throttle linkage and mechanical PI parts that the big suppliers list as no longer available. I currently can supply just about everything for CP cars. I have just finished making a twin to single choke cable conversion kit that TRGB will be launching I’m trying to build up the services and products that I can provide with a view to make it cover its own costs / or even make a return by the time I retire in a year or two. More details a
  11. Hi John, the 1DD’s are different to the DD1’s. They are later but still appear to have been early enough to be fitted to TR5’s. The order appears to be: the throttle bodies with no DD numbers, DD1 with no reinforcing, DD1 with reinforcing around one air balance pipe and then 1DD. All of these developments appear to have been made whilst the TR5 was being produced. Then DD2, DD3 etc for CP TR6. Then the CR throttle bodies started using DD1 again. Not sure if the DD numbers are meant to be chronological or denote differs moulds or suppliers but they were made at different times. When I am recon
  12. Hi John, thanks for that. There appears to be two versions of the DD1’s we have seen so far. One has no reinforcement around the air balance tube and the other only has one reinforced. What have you got?
  13. Hi Peter, those are early DD1’s. No reinforcing around either balance pipe.
