  1. Has anyone got a photo of how the hood should be properly stowed? I've tried it a few ways but they all look wrong/awkward. Ta Chris
  2. Hi all I need a new battery for my 7 The one that was on it was a type 038. Having surfed a few sites, different suppliers suggest differing types, so far 015 and 049. Can anyone tell me which would be most suitable. Ta Chris

    185 tyres

    Does anyone know when 185 section tyres became standard fitment on DHC's I'm looking at some Toyo 350 tyres. Are these any good? (not going to be doing big miles so mileage isn't a big concern).
  4. Thank you very much Ian - very good instructions. I've read a post by JohnG about having the cones machined which retains the original ride height and ensures there's still plenty of thread left for the top nut. Sounds well worth doing while fitting the bearings as you describe. Chris
  5. I've done a search back to find all I can on fitting the sierra bearings. It seems the consensus is that the sierra bearings is the best solution. Is there anywhere where I can find blow by blow instructions on how to carry this mod out? I've read about how machining the cone gives a better result but I can't find the basic instructions anywhere. Ta in advance.
  6. Hi all, I'm new on here. I've had three 6's in the past but now I've seen the light and am wedged-up! My car, an '82, needs some new tyres and I was wondering if there are any benefits in fitting 175's over 185's? My main thinking is that it might lighten the steering a bit at low speeds. Any thoughts either way? I'm not planning on driving the car too hard so outright grip isn't really a big issue. If I go 175 route are there any make/model of 175's that are particularly light steering. I'm sure there will be lots more questions to come. thanks in anticipation Chris

    running-on

    It can only be the breather that goes to the rocker box cover. What purpose does this serve? What might stop running-on ...blocking it off?, choking it down? or disconection from rocker box so it 'breaths' easier? Got to be one of these three options

    Running-on

    I've posted this on the TR6 forum but thought you guys may be able to help also... My TR6 is running twin SU's. A few years ago I had it set up on a rolling road. After setting up the car was 'running-on' a little. I asked the tuner if it could be cured. He said it could easily be cured be disconnecting a rubber tube (I think), he did say there was a slight downside but I can't remember what it was. I've lived with the (intermitant) running-on ever since and, whilst slightly annoying, it hasn't bothered me too much. I am now selling the car and the buyer wants it sorting. My questions a

My questions are: which pipe/tube is it likely to have been? What would the downside be to disconnect

  13. Wow thanks Wayne. You found the other pictures then I noticed the door handles and wondered how well they'd been done. Did make me think that, with them and the recent(ish) non-standard paint, what else had been filled/painted over The gas strut could be a good improvement? Thanks for all advice, I will certainly check it out properly. Got any pics of the Grinnall
