  3. Hi John have just raised the car back up on stands to re,bleed clutch,the master cylinder , slave cylinder and rods are all new (Moss).when cold 123 have to be really forced,(stationary).after ten or fifteen miles 123 still very clunky to get in even when on the move,double declutching was still hit and miss when going down and still hard to get 1 when waiting at lights.Slightly more success if I selected 2 and then tried 1 again?? nige
  4. You lads never fail thanks lads will check all advice /info out regards nige
  5. Hi all I have just taken my 72 out for its first shake down after buying it and doing all the jobs I could do,the car wasn’t drivable when bought but it did start,although it runs lumpy I was anticipating that.My question is gearbox related,the gears 1 2 3 are quite hard to engage,first is hard to get even when stopped at traffic lights, is this a normal thing (first TR6 I have owned) for this model car.I might add that this was quite a long test drive (given the miss fire) and the car was well warm,also what would be acceptable oil pressure at tick over when warm. Any thoughts/comments w
  6. Right got it thanks Stuart regards nige
  7. Hi all the trim strip that runs along the seal on the near side of my car is missing (just the rivets left) the other side is still there but I can only count 5 rivets in total,when I look at the remaining strip I can see no evidence of a rivet on the bottom of the rear wing,nor even on the other side where it’s just the rivets showing.So does this mean that the last bit of trim just rests against the bottom of the rear wing which seems to be ever so slightly proud of the bottom of the door when looking along its length? The other side (fitted trim) seems to be doing just that, any t
  8. I,m on it thanks guys nige
  9. Ok firstly thanks for taking the time to reply guys,so I think I will have a go doing this with a mate of mine who knows infinitely more than me but his knowledge is all american mostly (carbs).One question I have is on checking the throttle bodies for vacuum I can’t seem to find a bung big enough to seal around the opening (bet I am making myself look really daft here) I have a vacuum tester that seems to fit every thing else!! I will also invest in a colour tune kit and yes the metering unit was sent for refurbishment prior to purchase any advice on the vacuum bung thing or where I can purch
  10. Hi all i have asked this before but does anyone know of a good place to take my car to for tuning as i am nearly at the tuning stage after a light restoration,my problem is I can’t find a good recommend tuner for my fuel injected car.Its all pretty much standard but most contacts I have made seem almost reluctant to take the job on (maybe to old or just not the sort of car they are used to),to be fair although they dont refuse I am left wondering if it may become a learning experience for them just as it would for me,and I would much prefer an experienced eye rather than a learning as you
  11. As usual a great spread of advice and info thanks lads very much nige
  12. Hi all i am progressing with my 72 cp and I find myself wondering about originality over reliability and performance regarding the fuel injection system,I have seen carburettor set ups that look positively mouth watering.Or should the original Lucas set up be adhered to or is the Bosch set up more reliable,the car does not run well and the running issues will be my next task so now may be the best time to consider different options and as ever cost will become a consideration.Above all though reliability will be the watch word,any thoughts would be welcome from this ever knowledgeable ban
  13. Thanks for all the info gents I can work with that regards nige
  14. Hi all Does anyone know how many rivets and the approximate position of them to hold on the sill trims please regards nige
