  1. Have found the original wipers which came with the car. They will park on the opposite side to a rhd car but does that matter? They are much more robust than the spindley new ones from Moss. Eddie
  2. Hi Rob, Thanks for this, very useful. Solenoid is a bit more complex than I imagined. Looks like an opportunity for someone to offer refurbished solenoids. Eddie
  3. My TR250 has a saloon gearbox fitted. I have just wired up the solenoid and it doesn't seem to work. It doesn't make a noise when switched on. I have checked the current and it is taking about 2 amps so electrical side is OK. Can these be serviced/ repaired? New solenoids seem to be well in excess of £100. Thanks Eddie
  4. The wooden dash needs modifying to take the wider lucas switch. My new dash came with 2 wider switch openings to suit available switches. Eddie
  5. The previous owner fitted some long rear springs with over 9 coils. A loose pair with approximately 71/2 coils came with the car. I suspect they are original because the back of the car rides far too high. Will I have to remove the drive shaft bolts to get enough movement to remove these extra long springs? Thanks Eddie
  6. Update, the alternator didn't work and I don’t know anyone local who could repair. So have fitted a replacement Chinese one which is fine for now.
  7. Thanks Stuart, Got one , and blades from Moss today other to follow. I am surprised that they are not as large or robust as TR6 wipers and the blades are smaller. Eddie
  8. I have converted to RHD so do I need TR5 rhd wiper arms? Thanks Eddie
  9. Roger, Sorry don't know how I have managed to repeat my reply, possibly having too many screens open and too many beers watching the football. I am committed to the Lucas size now with the new dashboard so I have to get a Lucas replacement or use my existing one with relays/diodes. Many thanks Eddie
  10. Hi Roger, Car is a TR250, wiper motor is 2 speed. I have bought new lucas toggle switches to replace broken clear hooters wiper and wash switches. However I think I have the wrong wiper switch.

  12. Hi Roger, I have a Lucas toggle switch which I thought was a direct replacement for the Clear Hooters switch but I don't think the connections are correct. I will have to investigate. Thanks Eddie
  13. Hi, Thanks for the replies. I haven’t wired it up yet. I am sure it is the DR3A, number on it is 75568B and I had read about incorrect wiring burning the motor out. I am worried that the switch I have might not work. Eddie
  14. Can anyone identify this windscreen capping. It came with my car but has slots in the holes that don't match the car. It looks like it hasn't been used so might be useful for someone. Thanks Eddie
  15. I have a 2 speed motor and new lucas wiper and washer switches. I accidently pulled the wiper switch apart but think I have found all the bits and it seems to operate OK now I've put it back together. I haven't wired anything up yet but tested the switch, which has four terminals at the back, it only seems to connect two of the terminal together in all positions. Is this right, I thought I needed 2 connections to the wiper for fast speed. Thanks Eddie
