  1. Andy In my TR6 the washer pipe follows the route Roger describes, however on my TR4 the washer pipe follows the wiper rack into the plenum. This may well be a previous owners solution to the problem you face . Dave
  2. Andy If you look on Ebay you can find the correct NOS bellows type thermostat for a lot less than £100, I picked up a couple for less than £30 each. The same thermostat is used in lots of 50's BMC cars and Jaguars. Dave

    Hi TR Shop are advertising the complete kit on ebay at the moment, at a cost of £140!!!!. I'll look after mine very carefully. Dave
  4. Hi Hamish I would echo Rogers comments and stay well clear of the NC500 in the high season, unless you like a lot of reversing, it's a mecca for camper vans who like driving in convoy and are driven by those who don't use reverse gear! It's worthwhile getting the guide book (North Coast 500 guide book by Charle Tait) as this gives a lot of the alternatives to the main route, which are often of the type with lots of grass growing down the middle but unless you explore these you wouldn't come across little gems like Rogers pub in Achiltibuie. Here's a photo of the TR4 at John o'Gr
  5. HI Tim Happy New Year I have LED headlights in my TR6 and it has been through 6 or 7 MOTs with these fitted. I've also fitted LED bulbs everywhere else and thoroughly recommend them to you, you can see where you are going and others can see you. The car has been through 6 or 7 MOTs with the testers informed, they were only bothered about the operation and beam pattern. Like others I've declared them to my insurers. I've also had in on the continent, including France, a number of times with no problems, including the last 10CR. I've used https://www.bettercarlighting.co.uk/ and h
  6. Hi, My, wife happened to be looking at the Sky Arts FB page and came across this photo of a TR6 (GYY821L) in the post about a screening of twelfth night from The National Theatre in December - Dave
  7. Classic and Sports Car did an online article on the hoard with some really good photos - see https://www.classicandsportscar.com/gallery/behind-scenes-last-days-bristol-cars?utm_source=20201104&utm_medium=EMAIL&utm_campaign=ENews Bulletins&utm_content=CLAS ENews Digest 4th November 2020 (04.11.2020)::Hyperlink_20180116_175007319 Dave
  8. John I focussed on your comment about TR5 and didn't reply about the MG. I am sure that https://www.bettercarlighting.co.uk/ do a similar kit to the one i fitted to the TR6 for MGB/C/V8, have a look in the classic car section. Dave
  9. John - I am in the process of doing this on my 4, having fitted TR5 reversing lights, just waiting for the led bulbs to arrive. I found that there is a spare terminal on the light switch which is live when headlights are on which gives me the necessary feed for the switch. Bob - you need to change the bulb holder from a single pin to a twin pin to allow this to work. I got a kit from https://www.bettercarlighting.co.uk/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=715 for my TR6 which gives you new bulb holders, led bulbs and the necessary additions to the wiring loom. Works very well in both mod
  10. If Demon Tweeks are still selling the T-Trac2's at £43.15 it is a steal as Tim says, this is what I paid when I ordered a set from them last December. I don't recall there being any problems with supply/delivery from Demon Tweeks, maybe because I was buying summer tyres in the winter. Dave
  11. Hi You can find pdf copies on the internet, try googling Triumph TR6 Workshop Manual. Personally I find the hard copy easier to use and you can get these from Rimmers, or try Ebay or Amazon, it's well worth the money! Dave
  12. Staying in Borrowdale, had to have a quick run over Honister Pass Dave
  13. Hi, An alternative would be to use a Carcoon or similar. Dave
  14. Socially distanced meet at Leicester Airfield prior to todays Welland Valley Wander, thankfully the weather did get better.
  15. Hi These are becoming common fitment on Landrover defenders, judging by the number we see in the Peak District. I suggest you try Landrover aftermarket suppliers like Britparts as suggested by Graham Dave
