  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. A good dry lubricant is wax, I have lubricated rubber seals rubbing them with a candle and it worked on my car. Andy
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Thank you all for your support. I will check the levels as a first check and report back. Andy
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Keep up the good work guys, I really enjoy reviewing the latest videos Subscribed to both
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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 h
  17. 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 t
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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

    TR6 Boot lid

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-TR6-bootlid-/282014674347?hash=item41a9626dab:g:J48AAOSwubRXG1oH For sales on eBay, Not sure if this is any good ?
  22. Agreed on the Halfords HB072, Not the cheapest but excellent product !
  23. Fitting hidden anti theft imobilisor switch given Phil's terrible week, this seems like a warning shot ! I was thinking of breaking into the wire prior to the Inertia switch, is this a good location and if so what amp age rating switch do i need ? will 16 amp do as i have one spare. Forum thoughts would be appreciated Thanks Andy
