  1. Let us know how you get on, if you continue reading the article it might help you adjust the Camber when the time comes. Roger
  2. Hi Marco This link might help. It's at almost at the end of the article. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjL5ObEvf3qAhWMN8AKHRd3A3cQFjALegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic1.squarespace.com%2Fstatic%2F5c6dec53b10f25d4edf0b3f7%2Ft%2F5c6efe8cfa0d6054b95e50e3%2F1550777997286%2FAdjusting%2BRear%2BSuspension.pdf&usg=AOvVaw1LmsIkJtM9QT1uRH0FA2IS Ride Height Change (Spacer) = (1.8) X (Spacer height) Roger
  3. Colin I bought my o rings from Chris Witor and they were fine. You could give him a ring. Roger
  4. Hi Colin They will go in if your sure you have the right size O rings. Make sure the rings are well lubricated and inside the tube, then do as Gareth suggests. Roger
  5. If they are spraying OK then thats fine. If set to low they will dribble and to high they night not spray at all. Roger
  6. Hi Colin I have dismantled the injectors quite a few times and replacing the o rings is quite easy after you have done it few times. Be careful when taking off the metal retaining ring & do it in a plasic bag if your worried. I use a piece of wood to press out the inside ,shaped like a round pencil. Use a bit of vasaline when putting on the o ring and re assembling as there is a ridge in the bore of the injector, to avoid damage. I then use a tyre pump with a inflatable bed adapter which is coned shaped to check that injector is popping off of at about 50/55 psi. Easy to adjust.
  7. Hi Pete Unfortunately there is no one tool to deal with removing old underseal from my experience. I have been working through this horrible job over two winters and have still not finished although I have taken it at a leisurely pace. I have found if the underseal is really old and dryed out a selection of old wood chisels can scrape it of quickly followed up with a rotary wire brush on the end of a drill with white spirit liberally brushed on wiil remove the remaining underseal. More recent underseal is best removed with a heat gun and stiff scraper followed up by white spirit and
  8. Hi Worth checking that the steering wheel shaft to the steering rack is as straight as possible so that there no big angle at the UJ. Roger
  9. Jerry Will do. Thanks Roger
  10. Graham Thanks for your info and I will check whether the caps are alloy or not. I don't think they will be as the engine was rebuilt in 1989 and has done around 40,000 miles since. Waldi/Mick I think you are right it is probably a sticky valve. I am a bit worried that if it happens again at higher RPM that it will wreck the engine. There was a lot of oil around when I took the cover off and the tappet was moving smoothly in bore. I think I will assemble the push rod and then take out the spark plugs and turn over the engine to check that the valve is not seized. If ok I will do a
  11. Looking for help please as I have never experienced the above before in spite of driving some really old cars with worn out engines in the early seventies. I have just taken out my TR6 1975 CR to the bottle bank for the first time this year approx one mile and on the return journey and almost immediately I notice the engine was misfiring a bit( not unusual for the first journey of the year). Then I noticed a rattle from the engine above 1000 RPM. Stopped immediately had a looking thinking I had left something under the bonnet, but no such luck the noise was coming from under the rocker cover.
  12. I am afraid it's an old car and I am not sure I would even have left a car idlying in the seventies for that long. With no air being driven into the engine compartment it would get pretty hot in there and cause as keith said fuel vaporation or maybe dirty plugs. Modern cars automactically adjust the idle and we no longer have to blip the throttle like we had to in the old days. Also the PI runs rich at idle. Glad you got back home Ok and did it pass the MOT. Roger
  13. Hi Lea I have the same uprated springs tt4212 and I am pretty sure they are standard height when new. Here is a link for more info. https://www.triumphexp.com/forum/6pack-tr6-list-archive.13/coil-spring-id.795498/ Roger
  14. Hi Paul I have had this problem occur a few times on the standard TR6 wheel and the cure is as per Roy6 comments above . Easy fix and no more red blushes. Roger
