  1. Alan thanks for the tips , have run extra earth wires from front valance earth points and lights now working , but I still don't trust them. About a year ago at our local tr meet on the way back lights just packed in proper scary trying to drive with no lights?I would be happy for any advice so TT I will look into getting your cd on electrics and will look forward to your seminars when we get back to normal. many thanks Michael.
  2. Happy birthday Paul owe you a pint next time we can meet. Michael.
  3. Thanks for all advice its great to have a really helpful forum. It does seem to be a earth fault somewhere? thanks Rob for the diagram that's seems to be problem.Roger my knowledge of muti meters involves switching it on I do have one but got as far checking the battery voltage with the mystic thing. Could be a good idea for seminars at the international car electrics for dummies or where to put your probe? Will spend tomorrow in the garage kicking the car. many thanks Michael.
  4. I have a problem,well an electrical problem which is driving me bonkers. the car will be fine for months then the headlights will not work,and even one right hand indicator repeater will light up,which as far as I know does not share any circuits to headlight wiring. Have checked all earthing points I have found but beginning to think it could be faulty original light switch . Don't understand the dark arts of electrics. Can anyone help with advice what to check next. Michael.

      hi Dave,

      Glad you're starting the tr5 resto ,

      have orderded some hydraulic ramps from Cj auto's.

      Have not recovered from the last tent you sold me !!!

      but do need a tent ?


    2. dblenk


      Ok glad everyone is well I can keep the tent for you also no worries will offer the ramps to the group just need the space so no money required

      maybe see you at a meeting now the lockdown is being relaxed starting another list of things for sale if you need anything. Don't have a lot of 6 stuff but let me know



  6. I also have a small single garage, thought about mr1 but seemed to big and bulky. Now thinking about 4 hydraulic ramps and axle stands so as to get all 4 wheels off to do oil change and gearbox topping up ,so car can be level. that is the plan at the moment. michael.
  7. Hi Dave, How about 6 inch revolution wheels ! michael.
  8. unfortunately I don't how thick the garage floor is ,without drilling a bore hole . unless I contact the house builders, there's much to research before buying a lift . it states over 1500 thousand satisfied customers,but that could be worldwide or on village? michael.
  9. yes that's the one ,will have to use wood ramps to clear the lift?
  10. Does anyone have any experience of bh repairs car lift advertising in classic car weekly newspaper for £1200. michael.
  11. hi John had same problem with my tr6,mounted new ignition switch in centre consul ,as per early tr 6. Just leave stearing lock in place ! And leave key in to release lock . You can buy ignition extension loom from most electrical components companies,for tr6. Michael.
  12. rob h,Thanks ,will have a poke around tomorrow,as you can see electrickery is not my strong point. Michael.
  13. hi Roger, top tip for safety,take ashtray out of dash top so you can see smoke !!!
  14. thanks Mike C, I always thought if you switched on high draw it would have a negative result,I've learned something new, I'm a sucker for originality,so stuck with ammeter. Thanks Michael.
  15. who designed ammeters and oil pressure gauges! Have had trouble with both,but over the last year ammeter has driven me crazy it always registers plus 15 Amps with engine running,but when I switch main beam it goes up to 25 amps , but with engine off it registers minus with an electric load , is this something to do with alternator diodes or rectifiers acting up, Faulty earthing or light switch,any help would be most appreciated. Michael.
