  1. Hi, my first 1973 CR car had a Radiomobile 1080 push button radio fitted. The single speaker was fitted on the rear back panel between the two seats. The picture shows the housing and speaker that was fitted.The antenna was fitted on the front offside wing in front of the windscreen. (Access under the wing by removing the baffle plate). I believe this was the dealer/factory option, am sure there is an official BL publication for the fitting somewhere.
  2. Hi Darren, the plates were on the car when I bought it. A quick trawl on the internet came up with these guys. Seems they do the raised digits. Plate style 7. https://www.classicplatesonline.co.uk/plates.asp Cheers Steve
  3. Hi Geoff, the car is registered as a historic vehicle with the DVLA. At present on SORN. Going for the full body off resto. Intend to try and keep as original as possible. It is a matching numbers car, always was and always will be Magenta! Is there any other colour? lol. Steve
  4. Hi, just to throw a spanner in the works! Photo is of my other 1973 car. (Just about to start restoring). When I bought this it was fitted with the black and silver plates. I don’t have any documentation referencing an application to the DVLA. Does anyone have written approval? Steve
  5. Hi, on the subject of black and silver plates, following information copied from DVLA booklet INF 104 Vehicle Services. Vehicle registration numbers and number plates. No. 7, Number plate design specification. Page 11 Traditional number plates for vehicles made before 1 January 1973 Vehicles made before 1 January 1973 may display traditional ‘black and white’ number plates (for example, white, silver or grey characters on a black plate). From April 2020 vehicles manufactured before 1 January 1980 are also able to display traditional ‘black and white’ number plates. You
  6. Hi, My 73 CR has metal plates with raised lettering. I had this type on my original TR 6 back in 1975, which was also registered in 1973. Regards Steve
  7. Hi again John, just found these photos. Taken a few years ago!! Steve
  8. Hi John, just seen your post about NJH 611L. I have the car in my garage. It is running but needs restoring. If you need more info please send me a pm. Regards Steve
  9. Just fitted a blueprinted pump from Chris Wittor. Straight forward job and good increase in oil pressure.
  10. Greetings all, I have a steady oil leak on my J Type overdrive rear casing. It appears to be coming out of the threaded hole above the solenoid. Looking at various photographs and exploded diagrams I can't find any reference to this hole or its purpose. There is an identical hole symmetrically opposite which is dry. I presume they should be blind holes? The oil is topped up to the correct level in the gearbox is correct. It leaks even after a week of being parked, so appears not to be just an issue with pressure etc. I assume they are there for the mounting of a support bracket if r
  11. Hi John, John, The requirements were for 300mm depth of concrete. The garage extension was only part of a building project so there was plenty of readymix available!! The wheels shown in the photos are normally removed. They are simply held on with pins and R clips. They are forced into contact with the floor when the ramp is fully lowered. They lift the posts by about 5mm. I went for a four post lift as I want to park two cars in the garage. One on the raised ramp and one underneath. It has dual mechanical safety locks on each post so no chance of the upper car creeping down.
  12. Hi Phil, The lift is from Automotech Services Ltd. Model AS-4T36S As Waldi says it is probably made in China. That said I must admit to being impressed by the construction and materials used. Was relatively easy to put together but you need an engine crane as some of the parts are too heavy to lift comfortably by two persons. Everything you need is provided ( including the floor bolts), but not the hydraulic oil. It comes on a rack that weighs about 750 kg! The floor was laid as per the instructions. Concrete grade C25 (25N/mm2, 28 day strength) depth of approximately 350
  13. Hi John, it is designed to be moveable without a vehicle on it, the wheels are removed before putting a vehicle on it. Have to determine the final working position and will secure with the floor fixings then. I had the floor laid to the correct specification when the garage extension was built so no worries there! Steve
  14. Finally finished putting together my new four post ramp. No more crawling on the floor at last! Now to get to those oil leaks!! Steve
