  1. It's Barry again---the first photo's are of the dynamo pully / water pump pully, the dyno has more of a flange and this could be illusion? , but the other photos are of either side of the crank and water pump, that one def' to far back--Barry -----photo's 3 and 4 are of the water pump, with s/.edge either side of the crank pulley not shown--Barry

  3. HI chaps --I also have a problem with my pump/ crank pully , my pump look's about 3-4 mm too far back,,,,I have another Tr4 engine not in a car , and that looks the same? photo's w/ belts are of engine in car, any idea's,,,,Barry
  4. Hi Chaps --thanks for the tips, runs normal most of the time, will let you know what I do--Barry
  5. Hi Chaps-- it's the radiator that has the two positions , it's in the forward position at the moment--Barry
  6. Hi Chaps My 1961 TR4 w/ remote radiator filler cap has two positions , at the moment it's in the forward position making it about 50mm (2") away from the fan, if I bring it back to the other holes would be about 20 mm ( fan to radiator) that would keep it cooler , anybody know the correct position?--Barry
  7. Hi Mick--Thanks for that, just been on to to the engine reconer's, best would take the bare block in and they take 3 or 4 thou off the block top face that should bring the liners right height, not looking forward to the work though , and it freezing outside well a cold wind--Barry
  8. Hi Mates Just had an idea, after confirming the Ht w/ clamped liners , file the liner height square w/ the block then adjust the liner height to the right height, just an idea ? btw the top face of the block looks original surface
  9. Hi Mates thanks for the tips so far , no didn't clamp them down to test , I will have to give this some more thought--after clamped test will take out the liners and / check them and the fig' 8 seals Barry
  10. Hi mates - been getting bubbles in my water, and a bit of water in the oil, Just took the head off, the liners gaps on the dissy side were all 5 thou, but on the manifold side, they were all less than .1.5 thou the thinnest gage I had, prob' less than one thou or even 0 gap, so what could cause that? I have a feeling the other ( early ) engines in the range may have a different liner base gaskets and I may have used the wrong one, it was years ago , any ideas --Barry
  11. Hi Mates thanks the replies so far, the plug to me looked like it was too cold ,thats why I put the hotter plug in, thinking more heat less soot, the s/ station I used was really expensive, looked like the dearest in Aust', so you might have something there Hamish, just come back from a test run, it ran very well, but , it seemed a bit harder to start, on 91 now--Barry
  12. Hi Chums I also have vintages motorbikes as well as my Tr4, They have all been i running fine on 95 for years,, if a tad sooty exhausts ,,,,,I had just run a full tank over 2 days about 300K ? in my 1962 500cc Velocette Venom clubman it ran fine to whole time , but two day ago filled up w/ Caltex (Chevron?) 95 , It didn't run good from the start and got progressively worse as the run of 70ks went on , the last 5 ks it was really bad, I was thinking I wasn't going to make it, it was like the choke was 1/2 on, when I got back it wouldn't start again, I striped the carby no prob' and poin
  13. Hi Chums--Thanks John for the photo comment, ,-- hey Hamish I bet you thought it was a long way, did you have many punctures / break-downs ? you must have had some problems--Barry
  14. Hi Hamish So you went to Dawin via S Australia? that is a longer route , were you driving? ,,I went to Gingin British car day at least 50 Triumph's there, it was a fine day apart from a very light shower, the TR never lost any water and didn't get hot, my TR4 is in the first photo, in the middle of the red ones, mines got the hood up-----Barry
  15. Hi Phil Read--Did you have bubbles in the water? and after you used K-seal you haven't?--Barry
