  1. I'm sure Bromsgrove Engines do a great job but you'll wait forever. Took mine away in the end. Went to Dave's Engine Centre in Studley. First class job and turnaround in less than 2 weeks. Colin
  2. Rob, Check the PRV again. I had this recently and it blew the oil filter and adaptor seal, spraying oil everywhere. The PRV appeared to be fine but it was binding and not limiting the maximimum pressure. I'd say 75 psi at 2500 rpm and 30 psi on tickover. It should be slightly higher on cold start but not too much, as the PRV will limit maximum. The thicker oil at cold increases the delta P across the PRV, as it can't escape as quickly due to the higher viscosity. Colin
  3. Hi Phil, The complete fuel kit has the return line in it. I would have thought you could purchase just the return copper pipe. Try TRGB. You will need the short flexible pipe to cover the last 8" or so to attach to the metering unit. Colin
  4. Hi, I have a rebuilt A type overdrive gearbox that, now fitted, has a couple of leaks from the overdrive unit and one in the bell housing. Pretty competent mechanically but never touch a gearbox before. How straightforward would it be to replace the paper seals? Is there anything I should be aware of? Alternatively I'll get it done professionally but I've tackled everything else. Thoughts? Thanks, Colin

    Engine removal

    Ian, Ideally you should jack up the rear of the car to give you a better angle. It's tight but doable as I have just done this. Obviously bonnet off. I think you must go backwards as it is quite awkward. If not, split the engine and box. Colin
  6. Hi Andy, Depends what you are looking to achieve. I would put a fast road cam in and get the head ported and polished. This will make a noticeable difference in performance without making it difficult to drive. Going to cost you £1000 but well worth it. Colin
  7. You will also have a Lucas ammeter. The later CR cars had a voltmeter. Also check they are all correct. Many cars I have seen have incorrect gauges or mixed ones. See photo - these are all correct for CP car. Colin
  8. Went ahead with the red interior and absolutely delighted with the results. Colin
  9. Just wanted to advertise the brilliant service of the TR Register, and particularly Graham, who was able to make the application to DVLA on my behalf. It all happened in 2 weeks and I can now really enjoy the bank holiday weekend! Thanks, Colin
  10. TRGB. They have had issues with reconditioned units so are only selling new ones at the moment. I thing they are from Argentina of all places! Colin

    07977 001571. Don't worry - top bloke. Colin
  12. Revington TR offer the complete kit but you can just buy a rather neat very small square cable holder that looks rather good. I have used one for a few years now. They cost about £5.
  13. Looks like a LHD one Sean!
  14. Thanks for advice. Decided to shorten the saloon lever and file the diameter down to enable me to run a die down it. Looks perfect and only took 15 mins. Colin
  15. Saw it Mark, hence the message! Seems very expensive but, if you need one! Thanks,
