  1. Or you have the choice of three other fantastic driving roads from Alston - Down the South Tyne Valley on the A689 north via Slaggyford to meet Hadrians wall near to Greenhead, down Weardale the A689 east through Stanhope to join the A68 and down Teesdale B6277 via Middleton-in-Teesdale to Barnard Castle. Dave
  2. A medley of assorted triumphs, TR6, GT6, 2xSpitfire, Vitesse and 2000 mk1, on the Borders Raiders run taking in the view over the Firth of Forth and northwards over Fife
  3. Hi Rob When I had similar problems with the air vents I found that dried leaves were causing blockages, particularly in the bends and behind the eyeball vents. I ended up taking all the flexible hoses off and clearing them out and with the hoses removed you can clear out the vents easily. Dave
  4. + another one and they also do full car sets which include the all important LED compatible flasher unit.
  5. Thought I recognised this car, here's a link to the car and classic advert and photos https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1309693 Dave
  6. Here's the link to the switch on Car builder site, though it's currently out of stock. https://www.carbuilder.com/uk/long-stalk-momentary-toggle-switch Dave
  7. Hi Stuart, Carcoon do a self supporting cover, the Carcoon Veloce (https://www.carcoon.com/carcoon-indoor-veloce). Much better to use than inflatable cover. Dave
  8. The first of four fords on this 8 mile length of road in North Yorkshire Moor NP, glad we went through before the heavens opened this afternoon.
  9. Does look like the phoenix one, here's the link to it from Moss - https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr5-6/exhaust/exhaust-manifolds/phoenix-performance-extractor-manifold-tr5-6.html Now all you need is the rest of the system!
  10. Thanks Stuart, I think the loom was original, just in the process of fitting a new one as it is a long way past it's use by date. Interesting that there's no mention of reversing lights on the Heritage certificate along with heater, windscreen washers and Michelin X tyres Dave
  11. Hi, My TR4, built Jan 1962, had the top cover switch fitted and the wiring loom had the requisite feed into the boot. Dave
  12. Just put the car away from a 100 mile trip around the Peak District in glorious sunshine, good to give the car a decent run. Dave
  13. +1 for SGS, I went for this one https://www.sgs-engineering.com/tj3lp-low-profile-garage-trolley-jack, overkill on the capacity for TRs but at under 4" lowered goes under the car easily and lifts to over 21 ", plenty height to get axle stands under. The time between ordering and delivery was only a couple of hours Dave
  14. Hi Michael I bought a TR4 at the end of 2019 and it had a servo fitted to the clutch, it's the one on the left in the photo. I was told that the PO had similar issues to those you describe hence the fitting of the servo. I must admit I didn't like it and the clutch is going back to original configuration. If you do decide to get a servo I have a couple spare on the shelf if you want. Dave
  15. Hi Willies I waited for three months before driving the TR, however my replacement hip was my right and I had my operation on 1st December, so no real incentive until the weather got better. My surgeon said I could go back to driving when I felt like it so I was driving our moderns on short journeys before two months. Like Roger I was 61 when I had mine done. Dave
