  1. If I may continue this thread. I have new re-cored radiator and new thermostat. Today, engine was pushing into red and I had to put the internal radiator on (sun and heavy traffic). I removed the thermostat and it helps, quite a lot, but suspect there is another issue. Any help appreciated.

    hood bag fitting

    Funnily enough did same today but put the male poppers halfway up the back board. Lets see how it goes when I got 70mph!
  7. I have flushed mine numerous times and keep getting this brown sludge. . .its doin' my 'ead in...!
  8. I used the L brackets that came with mine and find this kept the stalks more out of the way on the seats, especially when tilting. Rich
  9. Hi Mark Half a wheel height is fine. Concept is that air rises and therefore by jacking up, the air moves to the front of the car and then exits from the radiator cap hole - also squeezing top hose gently helps circulation. In the old days, I believe mechanics just went and found a hill and ran the car with cap off.
  10. I had some issues and this is what I went through: - Check thermostat in a pan of water and see it opens - Check temp sender - I had one (new) that was wrong. I only found this by using a heat gun. This is a great purchase and cheap off ebay. - A good flush! - Burp the coolant. I jacked up front and ran engine with radiator cap off. When hot it literally went 'burp'. To avoid mess, I cut a windscreen wash water bottle (which you see outside garages) in half, wrapped tape around outlet and then that goes into radiator. All this does is make a overspill chamber for coolant to run into when it gets hot. If non of above, maybe something more serious.
  11. Hi Think its risky mate. . the shipping alone is gonna be a bomb, but from experience, the piccies are nothing like seeing it and turning it. I'd buy local.
  12. Hi so I recently put a new alu' fuel tank in. can I do this from inside the cabin so I don't have to re-do the work? Rich

    Power Steering

    Hi I know its personal, but for me, the TR6 I have from 1970 reminds me a bit of how simple life was and I, in a strange way like the heaving and grunting to get mine out of the drive. My main car is power everything with no dah and even has Apps you can download and for me, and again its personal, I like the clear difference of veteran and new. Hope you do not get offended by my comment. Rich

    Overheating

    Hi I had similar and it was the temp' sender sending wrong data to dial! I tested heat on the block and radiator using a digital thermometer, you know the gun looking thing that chefs use for testing the heat on a pan or food. Swapped the sender and all was good. Just one step in the elimination process maybe. Rich
