  1. Hi Andy I see that you live in Wakefield, who did you use for the balancing and any engine work? Regards Rich
  2. Hi All Big thanks for the feed back to date, I've realised that I'm responding with my usual middle name which is Richard! Yes my first name is Paul so anything official I use this, so I apologise for any confusion, my Mother has so much to answer for she even changed my twin brothers name after 1 year again from first to middle. I wont give her a hard time now as she is heading towards her late 80s ! Regards Paul Richard Drescher
  3. Andy Thanks for the reply, like you i want a car with some gusto but not a street racer, must be reliable but fun and a little bit of z. Rich
  4. Hi Ian Thanks for the reply, I've gone for a Standard road set up, replaced all suspension/steering bushes (blue) overhauled the original rear shock dampeners, fitted new road springs on all four corners, new crossed drilled discs front and new pistons/seals etc on the rear. The car will be for a Sunday lively drive definitely no racing, just good fun with a bit of Zip Best Regards Rich
  5. Hi Tim Thanks for the prompt reply, yes i want a nice sound as all us petrol heads do, come the day of electric I will hopefully be in a cask! Regarding driving style, no huge trips across Europe, just local runs around Gods Country Yorkshire, with the capability of zipping past the Sunday driver . Rich
  6. Matt great feed back, thanks. I removed the Cam today and all looks good regarding wear/marks is the line boring a common mods and something I need to do even if everything looks good? Who did you use for balancing and chem clean of the block?? Rich
  7. Hi John Yep balancing appears to be a good idea while the engine is in bits, how expensive did you find it?
  8. Great feed back thanks 1. Ribbed block ? i presume engine block any pictures of what i need to look for? 2. Pistons look in great original condition with a few tiny markings so I'm going to measure and if OK just replace all piston rings 3. Now definitely considering balancing, please excuse my ignorance but how do you balance piston rods and pistons, i understand crank assembly as this could be put in a balance machine as a unit but rods and and pistons how do this work? 4. Removed Cam followers today, look perfect, if i get a new cam do i have to buy the followers to mat
  9. Hi John TESCO do a 99 octane much cheaper, our local Rally Drivers fill their cans at the local TESCO'sI take my 370Z their for a monthly fill up. What advantage will CR 10.5 would be compared to 9.5 ? could this compromise any future head gasket leaks that cold require head re-skim? Rich
  10. Hi George Thanks for the reply, had some great feed back, CR 9.5 appears to be suitable for what I require as suggested the cam needs to compliment the head changes, any recommendations for cylinder head work?
  11. Hi Colin Thanks for the great feed back, I'm planning what you have recommended possibly stick with the SU carbs and maybe change out to Webbers 3 off at a later date. I've had numerous questions about driving style/need. I believe i want a good noise, some grunt to overtake on a a class road, and fun on my local country lanes but no drag racing. Did you do any crank/flywheel balancing? who did your head work and what CR did you go for?? Regards Rich
  12. Hi All I have a September 1972 US Spec TR6 which I have been restoring for the past year, chassis refurb complete, all running gear replaced, diff and gearbox rebuilt, LHD to LHD complete, body is waiting to go off to be painted so I'm now at the point of totally dismantling the engine for inspection and rebuild. I want to improve the HP of the engine to about 140 but without spending a ridicules sum of money. I have come across some old threads but at times the topic becomes embroiled with with technical jostling between individuals. So I would like feed back on the following improvemen
  13. Hi I'm on the final stages of rebuilding my TR6 4 speed gearbox, when rebuilding the top cover selector system I have found some damage to the 1st and 2nd selector, attached are photos of the 1st and 2nd selector along with one of the reverse selector which is in good order. As these parts are no longer available I'm considering tig weld overlay and then machine back to original dimensions, but I have noticed that the reverse selector has machined leading edges but the 1st/2nd dose not, can anyone advise if that how it should be or has a machining step been missed when originally manufac
  14. Hi Matt, I'm after exactly the same, pics and drawings do you still have them available
