  1. Hi Sean The picture is right for the right hand side of the car and wrong for the left hand side if you see what I mean. Roger
  2. Hi Sean The way I read para 14 it says the open end of the spring should lead in the direction of the wheel rotation which makes Neil right! Roger
  3. Yes Neil is correct just checked in the Bentley manual. Learnt something today so will have another job to do next week. Interestingly the Haynes manual has a seperate spring and retainer washer, can't get that the wrong way round. Roger
  4. Hi Jochem Thats a interesting one, I'm not saying your wrong, but I have always installed the clips pointing the same way, although they point in the opposite direction to those on Andrews car. I looked on Buckeye Triumphs and they intall them pointing the same way. Is there a right way? Andrew have a great trip. Roger
  5. Hi Dave Looks like number 2 injector is causing your problem so I would first swop that injector with another one, other than number one. Bleed the injectors and take it out for another drive. If you still have a problem with no 2 then you know it's not the injector. I would then work backwards and have a look at the one way valve or o ring at the Mu. I might first check that your wiring to the pump is not overheating as that can cause your symptoms. I had similar problem and it turned out to be wiring. best of luck Roger
  6. Hi Dex I can't really say that I have noticed. Did you clean the disc after installing to make sure there was no grease or dirt on them. If yes I would run a metal ruler over both discs and pads to check they are flat if your worried. I do remember a few years back when installing new pads on a Audi that the they were slightly concaved. It puzzled me at the time, but thought maybe they were designed that way to help bed them in. Roger
  7. Andy I agree with you about inbuilt reflectors and Police enforcement, but your not correct saying only pre 1/1/75 vintage can display Black number plates. The rules have changed and all Historic registered cars can now display Black number plates as stated in previous post. Regards Roger
  8. Bill you worry to much. The vehicle has to be at least 40 years old and registered Historic before you can use Black plates. I would worry more about all the Historic cars on the road that don't have MOT's. I actually found the GOV.uk link on Footman James classic car insurers web site and I am sure apply to DVLA means either for tax or Sorn. all the best Roger
  9. Bill I don't think you have to apply to the DVLA apart from applying for Historic status. As usual clear as mud. Roger
  10. The TR6 is actually perfectly legal having Black number plates! It’s legal providing cars are registered Historic. Copied from Gov.UK 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 2019 vehicles manufactured before 1 January 1979 are also able to display traditional ‘black and white’ number plates. You must: • haveappliedtoDVLA • beregisteredwithinthe‘historicvehicles’taxclass. The 40-year exemption date rolls forward automatically each year on 1 April. Roger
  11. Waldi Link as promised https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bosch-0450905021-AN-6-JIC-06-External-High-Performance-Fuel-Filter-8-Micron-/381571013429 Roger
  12. Thanks Waldi/Mike/Walt I was interested in knowing what the correct capacity was as I have my empty axle out at the mo and it's an easy fill rather in situ. I will next time top on a level surface once I have worked out an easy way as my TR is a bit low to get underneath. A bit weird my owners workshop manual says 1.27 litres and that whats gone in. Out on the road hopefully Wednesday, first time this year as the winter jobs took a bit longer than expected. Waldi I have attached a link you asked for showing a Bosch filter as 8 Micron. I expect most post filters around that figure. Better late than never. Regards Roger
  13. Talking of over filling what is the correct capacity for a TR6 Axle. I have the original handbook for a 1975 which states 1.27 litres, a Bentley manual which states the same and a Haynes manual which states 1.42 litres. I assume 1.27 is correct? Can anyone solve the riddle . The Bentley manual does mention1.42 for a pre 1970 USA model! Maybe that is the answer. Roger
  14. Hi John Bosch pumps are not great suckers so you want as large a pipe as possible from the tank to the pump. I have large bore outlet from the tank 10mm pipe work and a Sytec bullet filter with a reusable 55 micron metal filter and then a finer Bosch F5005 post filter which is approx 8 to 10 micron. You want a coarser pre filter to maximise flow. The powermax filter is cheaper than the sytec so I suppose you could use that filter with a metal coarser filter filter which I notice they supply. Best of luck Roger
