  1. Ian & Elclem Thank you for your help i will have a look & give it a go this coming weekend. Andy
  2. Guys I am currently stripping my car in preparation for a bare metal respray due to the dreaded micro blisters after 8 years of ownership, the car looks great from 20ft ! unfortunately even time you wash or wipe the paint for dust the blisters pop !!! I am struggling to remove the windscreen wiper wiper mechanism from the top vent, the motor is off but the rack and the two drives don't seem to have enough clearance to come out the top vent. Am I missing something obvious ? Hopefully I will Get it back in time to drive it at some point this year. Thanks in adv
  3. Roger, Rich, Andy, Bruce & Jochen Looks like best coarse of action is to remove and inspect before making the decision to refurbish or replace unit. Thank you for your support Andy
  4. Guys I am looking for some advice on my Tr6 it a 1975 Cr uk market PI My Clutch master cylinder has developed a minor weeping leak which has resulted in the paint lifting, clearly it needs fixing. QUESTIONS 1. Should I repair with new seals or replace with new master cylinder. 2. Would you opt for a 0.7 or 0.75 inch bore master cylinder (there are no marking visible indicating bore size on the casting) 3. Where would you purchase replacement unit ? 4. Where would you purchase seal kit ? 5. What is the best clutch fluid grade or type, Cap states Dot 3 but woul
  5. A good dry lubricant is wax, I have lubricated rubber seals rubbing them with a candle and it worked on my car. Andy
  6. I Guys Sorry for late response. Yes Installation very straight forward, there's a multi plug and a separate Aerial connector all clearly labelled. Took me around 15 minutes Andy
  7. I have one of these in my TR and to be honest its Ok, my only criticism is the FM station strength is not good at holding the reception, its got Bluetooth and you can charge your phone etc. Amazing value for money think I paid £15 delivered
  8. This is what I did on my TR6 although I never installed a flame trap, I had some trouble starting when hot. I have since returned to the standard plenum with K&N filter mounted to the front of the radiator which has helped.
  9. Adrian I think the flat bar dimensions were 20mm wide by 2.5mm in thickness with very simple radius'd ends, I will confirm next time I go to my lock up. To be honest I copied this existing MGF ones as a pattern, hacksaw, file and re drilled out the holes. I have still not finished the skirt on mine to stop the draft coming between the seats. Hope this helps Andy
  10. Guys Happened to find this recent upload on Youtube, really useful for understanding how the different components function before you attempt to repair or replace. Enjoy Andy
  11. Hi all Starting ticking off the jobs for re commissioning the car for the coming season, anyway the problem I was having engaging overdrive was simply down to the Gearbox oil level being low. Took the car for a run today and it engaged and disengaged really well. Thanks for all your comments & support Andy
  12. Thank you all for your support. I will check the levels as a first check and report back. Andy
  13. Guys Took my CR TR6 out for a drive today and what was noticeable was how long the Overdrive took to Engage and Disengage, seemed like forever say 15 seconds at a guess. I have not noticed this issue before and wondered if you can offer some advice on where to focus my attention to resolve. The gearbox oil I have is EP90 grade and I have not checked the level since early summer. Any ideas would be appreciated Thanks in advance Andy
  14. Steve I too have a CR with a 996 pump in rear arch which reading the history of the car was installed in the 90's, I am interested to know what you opt for pipework and connections for the installation. I have already uprated the tank outlet, installed a tap and replaced standard triumph filter with Inline replaceable type as shown but think this set up could be improved. Can you post some images of your pipework set up please Andy
  15. Keep up the good work guys, I really enjoy reviewing the latest videos Subscribed to both
