  1. Hi George I do not have a auxiliary rocker oil feed - its seems this is an extra add-on? I have a T pipe coming off the ricker and to the carbs, the carbon cannister is gone. I will check the airflow from the rocker cover to the T pipe/s. Thanks Rich
  2. Hi It is. without a doubt a scam. I looked into some of the source and a lot is copied from other sites. Keep away Rich
  3. Hi Harlequin I must admit, I do not fully understand all the checks you refer to... may I politely ask for a more simplified check? Excuse my ignorance! Rich
  4. Hi Waldi So compression tell will tell me if its rings or valve guides? Rich
  5. Hi all Went for a blast today . . and a symptom was seen. I was pushing it a bit hard, but nothing crazy and when decelerating fast I got quite a bit of blue coming out of the exhaust. I did not see this on going up gears. Does this give any clues? Still need to do compression test. Rich
  6. Hi all I am using Millers Oils, happy with it so far. So the general consensus is keep it going as to address it, is a big cost with a lot of off-road time. Must admit not the answer I expected and appreciate the help as I know what I am like, before I know it, its in a specialist workshop costing £££/€€€€ and then mission creep comes in when I add this, add that :-) Rich
  7. Hi all I don't want to overdo the task and start stripping the engine so ask advice. I use too much oil, I cant give accurate measurements but I seem to be constantly adding. Now my plugs are a bit dark but I am unsure if the mix is a bit rich, and there is not clouds of blue coming out of the back. Also its not leaking oil, just the usual TR territory marking! Now my plan of attack was first to do a compression test, do other more knowledgeable persons agree with this as a first start in the root cause? Thanks Rich
  8. Hi I just had mine done and tyre needs to be on for best accuracy. Find a really good place, mine were not initially done well and I had a shake at 50-60. This good & knowledgeable place did the balancing, drove and then adjusted again. also he swapped some wheels around to get the best wheels to the front. Difference was incredible. Rich
  9. hi Peter It has no loop so guess its regular seat belt material Rich
  10. Thanks . . the thought makes me shudder. . . I got taught how to fix hole in a sock during my Army training days maybe this can help a bit! Rich
  11. Thanks Rob Yes, they are US running lights. Good point on the bi-metalic relay. wiring wise I was thinking of adding an extra parallel loop to both sides from the indicators. Question, do the UK versions have no bulb in them? Rich
  12. Urgghh.... not my strongest skill!
  13. Hi but do I have to stitch the webbing around the said pin?
  14. I read many say its not dielectric (vaseline). I did some digging into this with an electrical engineer and summary is Vaseline is fine as long as its does not heat up as it has a low melt point. Its a good cheap bit of maintenance IMHO.
  15. Hi Mines a US car and a nice chap on this forum gave me a set of rear orange side lenses to replace my US red lenses. Now I spotted the bulbs are always on and I guess they should blink with the indicators. Should I just run the side bulbs in parallel to the rear flashers? Cant see on the TR6 wiring diagram the correct way. Thanks Rich
  16. Ok understood, so guess I now need to go figure how a sewing machine works!
  17. Sorry - still none the wiser, tried google and noting came up. Rich
  18. Hi all Please see pic', suddenly this is now hanging. I can see it goes into the slot at the back but I cannot figure out hows its secured. Can anyone advise please? Thanks
  19. I fitted a Delco 6 Electronic Distributor as a temporary measure whilst I was going to send my D22 lucas of to the Dist Doctor. Thing is, its running so well I am unsure on what gains I can get by sending off my old 22D...! Rich
  20. :-) Well the door cards have a few screws rather than those spring clips so taking that off is not the issue . . but . . the door handles. . oh no . . . .I need a drink...
  21. there are three jobs on a TR6 I REALLY struggle with: first is the pin on door handles. Second is the outer rubber on the window Third is the inner felt strip on the window. I have, with enormous amounts of blasphemy managed no1 and no2. No3 looks at me . . menacingly, mockingly and teasingly and as its vacation time I have decided again to take on the assault, or as Shakey would say, once more into the breach... So door cards are fitted and and the outer rubbers, plus I have every clip going. Please, any suggestions on making this task that bit easier? Thanks Rich
  22. A most helpful member made my day and helped me source some originals! Maybe I am being OCD . . but I spent a day polishing and rebuilding my cluster which is all original Lucas and the thought of fitting new non Lucas lenses for some reason bothered me!!! Maybe I need to see a shrink... Rich
  23. Hi So the summary is, this is built for expansion of additional power elements right? If so, I will use it for faggy, USB, etc. Rich
  24. Yes Correct, rear side indicators. I have never been able to find a pair on ebay. Rich
  25. Hi Does anyone have a recommendation for speakers (regular size?) Nice work Trevor, doing same here soon Rich
