    Useful travelling spares list

    Hi You are most right Roger . .and I think I will join! It is a stones throw as you say but now you have to drive all the way to Holland. The overnight Esbjerg ferry stopped 5+ years ago which is a great loss. Seems they could not compete with Ryanair and the busy lifestyle people now want. Rich

    Useful travelling spares list

    Hi I am in the TR club of Denmark and the Triumph Club of Denmark currently. I must admit I feel a bit bad to not give back to the TR register as this forum for me has been a lifesaver on owning my car and also I have met some wonderfully helpful people. I think if I was in UK I would join in a heartbeat but if I do from over here its more for appreciation of the support of this forum. Does this make sense? Rich

    Also for the history buffs. . . Osnabrück is where three legions of Rome were defeated by the German tribes and there is an excellent museum there! Rich

    I have also had that slime as well . . and only a few months after a flush. Wonder what it is...

    Aluminium Radiator and Corrosion

    Some interesting FYI, on the offshore platform we are building, if the inspector sees ally' and steel who marks it as a fail. There is a basic rule of differing metals means an insulator, often a Teflon strip or Teflon made washers. I know Offshore is extreme but but us TR6 owners never do things by half :-) Rich

    Door Card lining up tips

    Hi After many hours on this and those dumb poppers pinging out I used a few nice screws (self tapping) across the top. I got nice ones specifically for interiors from woolies and they look great. All I then had to do was align a couple along the bottom and use the winder and door handle to hold in place. I think the issue for me, was after 50 years the holes were wider and the new panels simply mis-aligned. For me, it just was not worth it - driving along, smile on face and they bloody well came loose. Only reason not to do it is originality but my TR is not a show car. Rich

    Hi Remember to put an insulator between the steel and the aluminium (see my other thread on it!) rich

    Aluminium Radiator and Corrosion

    Hi all I sourced recently a nice new original Stanpart radiator and read also some people mentioning corrosion issues on aluminium radiators. currently I am working on an offshore wind project and a material specialist gave me some tips on some issues that one could have with an aluminium radiator when putting into a classic. Here is his advice: Steel and aluminium is a no go . .this causes corrosion issues The above is accelerated with moisture Solution for offshore is to use strips of Teflon to make a barrier, guess rubber washers could also work but its a bit soft Also the steel washer which is part of the bolt that goes onto the aluminium must have insulation, ie teflon Last, he mentioned ensuring having an inhibitor for aluminium in the coolant. Maybe all covered before but thought I would share, but the summary was there must be insulation between the steel body of the car and the aluminium. Rich

    Offer of new / re-cored radiator

    Hi Can anybody help me identify which hose is which from this kit? Supplier is https://roosemotorsport.co.uk/triumph-tr6-coolant-hose-kit.html I think it makes sense to add a new set whilst at it. They also offer stainless hose clips so may do that too. PS - Carb / US version. Rich
