  1. Has anyone had dealings with Moon Automotive in Newbury, or have heard any good or bad reviews? Have emailed them about my oil pressure and have had good reply from them, also emailed Classic and Modern in Bracknell five days ago, and as of yet no response. Chris
  2. The car had a full nuts and bolts restoration by the previous owner in 2016. He never used it, and I have added less than 2000 miles since buying it at the end of 2019. The place I took it to said all the top end looks new, or reconditioned. Only the crankshaft, oil pump and bearings were bad. Also said the crankshaft had been previously ground to +10, and that there was a lot of metallic matter in the bottom of the sump. Maybe the engine wasn’t flushed out properly when it was reconditioned? He showed me the wear in the oil pump and bearings. My gripe is, if he didn’t have time to do a proper
  3. Just looked on their web page. Can I just drop the car off for them to take the engine out? I don’t have the facilities to remove and transport it myself. Chris
  4. Bracknell is ok. Will give them a call. Thank you.
  5. Looking for recommendations where I can take my TR6 to have the crankshaft reground due to low oil pressure. Live in Reading, Berkshire, so would like someone fairly local with reasonable labour charges. Took it to one place, they took the sump off, changed the oil pump, put new shells in but said the crankshaft needed regrinding. They didn’t have time to go for the regrind, or let me know before they put it all back together, and charged me £635. They said I should have good oil pressure for about 1500 miles and then they will have time to do the job properly! All in all, by the time I drove
  6. Built in Reading, my neck of the woods! Did see that advertised about three years ago. It’s had a lot more upgraded than just the engine. Must have cost an arm and a leg, and a lot of re-engineering. What not to like, you get a more efficient modern power plant, and still retaining the looks.
  7. Think I have serious lack of oil pressure! Today out driving, when hot, was only recording about 10-15 psi at 2000 rpm, and just above zero at tick over. Previous owner paid a lot of money for a full nut and bolt restoration in 2016. Has done less than 2000 miles since then, mostly by me over the last 18 months in my ownership. Need to urgently get it looked at!
  8. 2003 Yamaha Roadstar Warrior a 1700cc sports cruiser owned for ten years, and a 1974 Suzuki GT750L two stroke triple, newly purchased, and same year as my TR6.
  9. The log book used to show the previous owner. That I know, he bought it from the restorers, who I also know. They had the car for a number of years waiting for the right time to restore it. It was off the road for 10 years, before it had a £35K restoration in 2018.
  10. Tried sending off a V888 form to try and obtain some past history. In the box asking why I required this information, I wrote, “Researching the history of my historic car, for personal use” It came back saying they cannot release this information as it does not meet the reasonable cause criteria. Guess after hitting that brick wall, the history of GCT 416N will stay hidden for ever now?
  11. Previous owners were Dr Martin L Ward from Lyndhurst, Hants, also Robert Norman from Camberley, Surrey, and an unknown owner who lived in Germany. The two names above were members and listed the car as red. I was under the impression from the company that restored her for the guy I bought her from, that she was in Magenta! Are these two previous owners still members, or does anyone know them please?
  12. Oh well, was just hoping a previous owner (or 8) might have been members!
  13. Well my mot was booked for today. So took the “6” out 45 mins before to warm her up. While driving I kept pressing the pump switch, within a 1/4 mile from the garage it worked once and stopped working again. During the mot my fingers were crossed, and low and behold when the tester tried it it worked! So new mot certificate, and new pump ordered tonight.
  14. Well tried tapping it, sucked and blowed, checked to make sure the little no return diaphragm works, all to no avail! Motor gets warm so guess so guess I will have to order a new one.
