  1. White smoke is normally caused by brake fluid Harvey S. Maitland
  2. Just a point on Ferodo brake pads for the TR6, the prefix FER refers to the budget range FDB for the premier 167 is the part no. ( FDB 167 are fitted to my TR6 ) Harvey S. Maitland

    A Nice Rack -2.

    TR will not start.

    Check vacuum diaphragm in metering unit ( possibly split causing sudden failure ) & over fueling. Harvey S. Maitland
  7. As a point of interest ( without going into details ) , I had a cheque that had cleared & was debited from my account after 3 months. When I was investigating this my bank informed me that a cheque can never be assumed to have cleared if a problem with that cheque is found at some time in the future. Harvey S. Maitland
  8. I think the Millers product contains ferrocene that may have a shelf life. Peter C. may be able to confirm. As for valve seat recession one of my customers covered 60,OOO mls in a Ford Cortina ( cast iron head) before no. 4 exhaust seat suffered recession. Harvey S. Maitland
  9. Jaguar XK 8s also have a fly off hand brake due to being fitted on the right hand side of the seat ( stops you tripping over it when getting out of the car ) with hand brake on. Harvey S. Maitland
  10. Not TR related but a friend of mine cycled the end to end ( Lands End to John O Groats ). When he came to get the train home there was no provision for his bike, so he found a role of plastic sheet in a local farm field & taking the wheels off his bike he made it into a large parcel. Back to the station with large plastic wrapped parcel . No problem sir we can put your parcel in the guards van. My friend Stuart was then able to travel home by train ( I think the moral of the story is don't divulge the contents of your parcel ) Harvey S. Maitland
  11. Yes same as mine, the centre screw is spring loaded, the vent opens as the cap is closed. good luck Harvey
  12. Trevor if you buy a new seal just punch a hole in the centre, with the old one off you can see a vent hole in the cap itself. Harvey S. Maitland
  13. I had a problem many years ago with my TR6 ,after a short run if I accelerated hard the engine would start to misfire, when I checked my new cap seal ( no vent hole ), problem was a vacuum build up in the tank reducing fuel flow to pump. Punched hole in seal as original one, problem solved. It appears many new seals are produced with no vent hole ? Harvey S. Maitland
  14. You need to apply pressure to the taper for it to grip & oil on the threads to reduce friction. I have this king of problem all the time, sometimes I get around it by putting a length of wood between the ball joint and the wheel arch & jacking up the lower suspension arm until the taper grips. Harvey S. Maitland
  15. Try Merlin Motor Sport, they list a selection of heat shield material. Harvey S. Maitland
