  1. Darryl has just been in touch. To add confusion they produced 2 slightly different 777-1 cams in the 90’s. One set at 0.022” inlet 0.024” exhaust the other later one 0.016” and 0.018”. Darryl suggests the later gaps. I’ll measure as is now and take it from there.
  2. Graham that sounds like to one. 0.024". Later in the week Ill take the rocker cover off and see what they are currently. Stuart Ive contacted Daryl I'm waiting for him to get back to me.
  3. I’m pretty sure my cam was fitted by Racetorations in the 90’s. I have a lot of old paperwork and I know they rebuilt the engine around this time. I found reference to the MU been sent away to calibrate it to a 777-1 camshaft. But I’ve searched and can’t find any info on it.
  4. A previous owner of my 5 fitted roller rockers, amongst many other mods. During this lockdown I thought I’d set the tappets as they are very noisy. Would the gap be the same as a standard rocket shaft? I’m not sure which cam is fitted but I would guess at a sporty version. thanks Paul

    Rear wing bead

    Thanks Roger the guy doing the paint is going to try. But it needs a small patch welding in and it’s very close to the stainless trim. Is the trim still available ? If he damages it. paul
  8. Hi can someone tell me how the rear wing bead is fixed please. Mines chrome and I’d like to remove it to have a small paint repair done to top if wing. I’m hoping it’s held by clips and might just tease off carefully. Worse case I guess is it’s sandwiched between wing. thanks Paul
  9. I’ve got a hidden cutout switch for my fuel pump. I was thinking of moving it (into a better position) and wondered what sort of power the pump used. I want to make sure the switch is up to the job. It’s a Bosch pump and I don’t think it’s via a relay. Any suggestions on a suitable switch would be appreciated. The current one is one of the battery isolation types that you remove a red plastic key. thanks Paul

    TR5 For Sale

    Hi all I have seen a white TR5 for sale at auction (not Ebay) which I'm interested in. Reg No OKR842G, chassis No CP3077, Engine is CP29??HE although the catalogue states 308A28 not sure why. Ive done a search on here and see its been sold a couple of times at auction. The chassis looks solid, bodywork again is rust free but several shades of white. Down side is the rear wings are fibre glass. I know id never be happy with these wings. Question is what are repro wings like these days and what would a budget cost for a respray be? I could strip the body myself. it has a Surry top, no MOT and looks like its been standing for a while. Ive had a few 6's in the past and whilst looking for a tidy 4 I spotted this one. Might go above my budget but its been sold with no reserve. Id be interested in opinions please. Regards Paul

    Selling TR6

    So whats the safest way to sell a car? If its £20,000 its a lot of cash to accept

    Selling TR6

    Tell him to pay in full and youll store it for him free of charge until he returns from Australia when he can collect it. All sounds very iffy
  14. Cheers Alec whats the situation if they were fitted as a spot and fog when the car was new ie 1957. Which did happen? Paul
  15. Thanks. Its only a bit of bling really. Car rarely goes out in the dark and never in the fog.
