  1. Thank you all for your support. I will check the levels as a first check and report back. Andy
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Keep up the good work guys, I really enjoy reviewing the latest videos Subscribed to both
  5. Adam For three years I had the three K&N filters in place with standard linkage on my CR model, I found it could be difficult to start when hot without choke applied. About one year ago I purchased an original Plenum and fitted single K&W filter on its end, its definitely better at Hot starting now. Hope the picture helps Andy
  6. Steve Really enjoyed the video, thanks for sharing this as removal of sump to replace gasket is on my to do list. How's the chassis swap on the blue car coming along ? Keep the video's coming ! Andy
  7. Dennis I totally agree my son who is 16 year old generally comes with me to classic car meets, loves the gatherings & photographing the cars, funny enough he loves Austin 7's. However recently he had his school prom and I have been offering to take him in my 6 as most arrive in more modern prestige cars. He said "no way" too embarrassing to be seen in car with you !!!! I think the problem with him and my car was he would have needed to go with me on his own and if it had been say a stag that could have held 3 people it would have been OK. You cannot win Give it a year and he will want to drive it if he passes his test and I can afford the insurance cover Andy
  8. Update Took the car for a drive at the weekend as the weather was great and the wind deflector has made a difference, as stated I increased the length of the mounting brackets by 35mm to get the deflector height increased. Image of brackets extended by 35mm, original on the Right hand side was 100mm centers between M8 clearance holes, now 135mm. Not bad for total spend just over £50 so far Question, can any of you advise me of what you have connected to the Bottom of the wind deflector to stop draft between the seats ? I am assuming leather/pvc material strip, is this correct ?, pictures would be fantastic Thanks in advance Andy
  9. All This is identical to the one i purchase of eBay, you will note the mounting brackets which were modified to suit seat belt mounting. see link http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/mgf-tf-wind-deflector-/262876172566?hash=item3d34a41116:g:3uEAAOSwOgdYtv0S Andy
  10. Andy I modified the existing MGF brackets, opening up the mounting holes for clearance under the seat belt guides and a bit of adjustment the mounting angles to ensure the hood frame cleared when retracted. To be honest i was suprized i don't have to remove the wind deflector when putting the hood up and down, it clears without a problem. The next thing is to road test it to see if it does the job, which i hope to do over the weekend. Hope this helps Andy
  11. Thought would like to see my take on an alternative & cheaper method of fitting a wind deflector on my Tr6, I couldn't bring myself top spend nearly £200 on a bespoke one. Your not going to like this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have purchased an a used MGF version off ebay for £50 including delivery and with minor bracket adjustment, right angle bracket mounted under my seat belt guides, It fits well. I have not fully tested yet as ran out of time today, but very happy with the result. following options may be needed to optimise performance 1. Increase height slightly by lengthening brackets, I think it may not be 1-1/2 below side windows, more like 2-1/2" 2. Make a pvc/leather skirt and fix with velcro to underside stop draft between seats. What do you think ? Andy
