  1. I have a fully rebuilt TR5/6 differential for outright sale. It has completed 600 miles and is 3.7:1. Rebuilt by a very well known and respected re-builder with many years experience. Painted and with powder coated rear casing. Open to offers as moving house and needs to go. Colin
  2. Hi Rich, I believe the factory spoiler has 5 fixing points. If you fit a new valance you have to drill these out. I just drilled the 3 required and used these strange fittings. It is very awkward in the 2 ends, hence the little spigot. Colin
  3. Rich, There are some strange shaped fittings, as access is limited. I sold one of these spoilers a few months back but I am sure I still have the fittings. I can look them out and let you know if necessary. Colin
  4. Hi, Just a reminder on scams. I put my rebuilt CP engine on Classified and also a post here. Got a fair amount of interest but one person was prepared to pay my initial asking price. Promised to send a cheque and then arrange collection once it had cleared. After about 2 weeks the cheque finally arrived but for twice the amount. Looked a genuine cheque from a business in Manchester. He then emailed to say a client of his owned him this money and would I pay him the difference when it had cleared. He would also arrange to collect the engine. This transaction always concerned me as he wanted little info on the engine rebuild. Anyway I decided to email him back and say the bank wouldn't accept the cheque as they thought it was a scam. I told the purchaser this and offered to return the cheque if he provided an address. No response for a couple of days but then, after another reminder, he told me to destroy the cheque! Absolutely no mention of the engine. Reading up on this, I understand that even though a cheque may clear after 5 days, if found to be counterfeit, the bank can take the amount back out of your account at a later date. This could be several days after the 'cleared' funds. This is where you lose your money, as you have paid the scammer in between times!! As a foot note, the genuine 63,000 mile 1972 CP rebuilt engine is still for sale. Be careful. Colin
  5. Just put one on eBay Michael. Really nice condition and correct for TR6. A coat of paint or powder coating and it will look like new. Colin
  6. Alan, You can machine them and fit a small bearing in there. Only room on CP bodies as the spindle diameter is smaller. Difficult to see on attached photo but they have bearings on each body. No play and very smooth. You need to be able to machine a counterbore on the same centre line as the spindles. If you are careful, you could do it on a pillar drill. Colin
  7. Hi, Enquired about this on the TR6 forum but no definitive answer. I know someone with a TR5 who has owned it from new. It has this air bleed. Anybody else got one on their TR5?
  8. Interesting. Just spoken to someone who has owned their TR5 from new - it has the air bleed. It was a very late TR5. Colin
  9. I have a set of bodies but don't recognize the air bleed screw. Someone has suggested it is off the later TR5, or very early TR6 specification. This would have been before the brass, later air bleed screw and after the version with no bleed at all. Any ideas? Colin
  10. Hi, I know this is not uncommon. Any clever ideas to solve it please? Thanks Colin
  11. I have put a rebuilt genuine CP engine in the classified section. CP77***HE All work complete including new fast road Newman cam. 63,000 original miles on engine before rebuild. I have a TR250 with the same specification, so a test drive can be arranged (on a dry day!). Complete engine only, no ancillaries. Moving house so it needs to go. Giving you the opportunity before it goes on ebay. Thanks, Colin
  12. Michael, They fit without issue. Colin
  13. Panch, As Steve has said, the bolts and thread areas are irrelevant. The correct gasket with a good quality sealant will solve your issue. The consistency of the leaks from every bolt confirms the issue is the gasket and its sealing method. Colin
  14. Is the stay straight? It happened to me with a slightly bent stay. Colin
  15. Take the PRV out and clean it and ensure it is free. I had exactly the same issue and it was the piston jammed open. The pump displacement is relatively small so it will run at zero if PRV open. Unlikely to be the pump. Colin
