  1. You could try a piece of timber to lever the boot floor up a bit and relieve the pressure on the tyre. If they are as daft as they sound they may well have put the wheel in the wrong way up as well. Mike
  2. Ed, You have a PM MIke
  3. Won in (I think) 1956 by Richard Bensted-Smith in his TR2 SYA 176, a previous winner of the Mobil economy run. There have been others and I believe a Peerless has competed in relatively recent years. Mike
  4. Just to update this topic the TR2 in question sold for £2700 plus commissions.
  5. Mentioned in Registrar's report in latest TRaction (317) which refers to the magazine of the TR Register Australia access from here https://www.tr-register.com.au/Files/sidescreens/104SidescreenAugSept2019.pdf. Hoping to persuade the guy to write a detailed article soon. Mike
  6. Mike could u send pics of tr2 nhadley@tiscali.co.uk



  7. Looks as though they have only one picture on the website, that's its good side! Like I said before I do have others if anyone is interested. Mike
  8. A TR2 (TS1857) has recently been pulled out of a barn after about forty years storage. It is being auctioned on November 20th as part of a house clearance by Wotton Auction Rooms in Gloucester with no reserve. When it appears on their website I will post a link but until then if anyone is interested I can supply photographs (too many to post here), just PM me your email address. Be warned that although it seems to be fairly complete it is very bad and they cannot find any documentation. Not for the faint hearted. Mike
  9. Hi Chris, You have a PM. Mike
  10. Car is currently owned by a Register member but registration is now YVS 399 as the original was sold some years ago and is now on a Kia Sorrento. Mike
  11. They go into an airbox visible on the inner wing which is fed from a scoop on the bonnet. You can read more about it in the next (317) edition of TRaction. Mike
  12. Andy, No record of it in our club files, have sent you a PM. Mike
  13. Recorded with the club in 1989 and 1991 so presumably by your family, no knowledge since then. According to the DVLA it appears not to have been taxed since 1993. Mike (Registrar)
  14. Hamish, No, not me. Mike
  15. First H6 SU engine was TS8997E but they weren't fitted in sequence. When the FR plates were attached the original number was usually ground off, I guess some sort of X-Ray analysis might show what was there but it is a bit extreme! A few more photos of the engine may give some more clues. My engine has a mildly modified camshaft and 87mm pistons, Martin Jay built me a distributor to match this. I also have a standard distributor rebuilt by him which while not quite as good still performs satisfactorily. Mike
