  1. Also available from Chris Witor https://www.chriswitor.com/proddetail.php?prod=514223SK
  2. Yes RobH , I stand corrected a more minimal wiring setup - so no dedicated radio wire and the only fused live wire "purple" is linked to the horn. I found the wiring diagrams on another post. http://www.advanceautowire.com/tr24a.pdf Sorry Dave for the wrong info. Paul.
  3. You should find a pink/white cable as the ignition switch feed to connect to the radio Red "switched" power and you will need to extend from a purple wire "fused permanent" to attach to the yellow radio constant power. NB NOT purple/white courtesy light earth. The pink/white line may well have another cable attached to it usually red with a necessary inline fuse in place. It will be the one you are using to power the radio now I expect. You can run a new wire from purple at the fusebox or find a connector in the courtesy light circuit.
  4. I soldered the copper contact to the edge of the earthing/spring clip and made sure the edges where it inserts are clean. This seemed to be a weak point of contact both mechanically and for dirt to reduce the conductivity. NB new ones are problematic too.
  5. Hi I installed a set of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Weber-40-DCOE-40-IDF-Carburettor-Stainless-Mesh-Clip-Trumpet-Air-Filters-ADV-/274296452494?hash=item3fdd57b58e Paul
  6. This company provide a big pack of most the nuts and bolts you need to hand https://shop.imperialnutsandbolts.com/product/triumph-tr4-tr4a-ultimate-restoration-fastener-set-over-1500-pieces/
  7. Hi Ian, Worth watching the Superseal video to see how to put them together. https://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/12-volt-planet-tv.html Well if all these things didn't go wrong you would just be driving around enjoying yourself :-) Cheers Paul.
  8. Hi Ian With regards to joining different the looms of different wire thickness these AMP connectors give you the flexibility you need. Select Yellow/red/green for different wire thicknesses but they use the same connectors of whichever size required 1 - 6.Note the terminals and coloured seals make the difference. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-AMP-Tyco-Superseal-Waterproof-Electrical-Connector-Box-Set-1-to-6-Way/132080540628?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 So it is possible to buy a 6 way 1.5-2.5 connector and a 6 way .5 to 1.5 - that would give you 2 x 6 way connections. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-Way-Genuine-AMP-Superseal-Waterproof-Electrical-Wiring-Multi-Connector-/140938481537?hash=item20d0968f81 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-Way-Genuine-AMP-Superseal-Electrical-Connector-Wire-Size-1-5mm-2-5mmsq-/140938481489?hash=item20d0968f51 NB - back to where you started you need the correct crimp tool! Keep going though - I had so many issues with my installation, the throttle bodies had to go back, I blew a fuse in the Megasquirt unit, Head gasket went,Gearbox fork pin broke etc etc the wiring was mostly the easy bit :-) Regards Paul
  9. Some more info on the head spacing in a previous post CC75001 seems to be the change point.
  10. Hi I use a facet silver top pump (480530K) for my Strombergs . It comes rated at 5-6 psi but I replaced the internal spring with a 3 psi replacement to be sure. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230984130252 Regards Paul.
  11. Hi Ian I also have a set of Heritage 40mm as recommended by Jenvey. I am utilising the openings for Idle air management which means the butterfly valves can be closed at idle. Paul.
  12. Hi Rog, I used one of these Lucas switches with the pictorial TR6 fan pull. I had to remove a little from the end of the switch as the depth of the pull is not as much as that supplied with the switch. Paul
  13. Hi Rog, If you look at the rear of the Dash support bracket there are 2 extra holes pre-prepared each side of the courtesy light switch. It is possible to utilise these for extra switches or lights as required. Paul
  14. Hi Richard I have 185/15s on my US spec 6 with which I replaced a set of Michelin Redlines. They are from Blockleytyre.com Ive had them around 18months and very pleased with them. Paul
