    Maybe Prestone US and Prestone europe are different species. I have been using Prestone (5 year life) in my TR4A for 10 years since arriving in Canada when I was not able to find the 'Blue stuff.' The coolant is fine and replaced every 5 years. Looking at the Prestone website, they produce other specific coolants, one for European and one for Asian cars both based on OAT technology. I believe that the Prestone Yellow stuff in North America is Glycol based. https://prestone.com/products?detail=AF2000 Says it meets these two standards ASTM D3306 Standard Specification for Glycol Base Engine Coolant for Automobile and Light-Duty Service ASTM D4985 Standard Specification for Low Silicate Ethylene Glycol Base Engine Coolant for Heavy Duty Engines Cheers Graeme
  2. No, Ken Newman recommends using the standard springs if in good condition. I also use the Newman PH1, it is a great cam. Cheers Graeme
  3. Phil, Can you select all the gears OK? Ensure the reverse gear is not engaged at the same time as any other gear. If I remember correctly, it is possible to install the reverse gear the wrong way round which would lock the lay gears. Graeme
  4. Our TR4A at Salem, Oregon in August 2018, our 40th Wedding anniversary. Graeme
  5. Didn't get out at all in December, so I promised I would take the 250 out on 1st Jan. Reasonable weather and a good blast to clear the head. Cheers Graeme Gabriola Island ferry in the background. de Havilland Otter float plane about to land.
  6. It's a few years since I ordered this panel from Moss and things may have changed. The panel supplied to me for a TR4A was a TR6 panel with incorrect apertures and it was very poorly pressed. I returned it and repaired the original. Cheers Graeme
  7. John, Low fuel, less than a quarter tank can cause this on cornering. Graeme
  8. Hi John, I would recommend using poly spring collars in place of the rubber version. Cheers Graeme
  9. Thanks Jochem & Stuart, As I thought, I will order new. Cheers Graeme
  10. Hi Marco, We have two on the island, one here in Nanaimo last weekend. https://nanaimochristmasvillage.com/ And one this coming weekend in Victoria. http://www.victoriaedelweiss.ca/events Cheers Graeme
  11. Hi Marco, PM sent. Cheers Graeme
  12. After the Christmas break I plan to strip, inspect and rebuild the suspension on my TR4A. It is 20 years since the rebuild was completed. It has Goodridge brake hoses fitted which are also 20 years old. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether I should replace these? Can they break down internally like conventional rubber hoses? It would make sense to replace them while I am in there but on the other hand it may be unjustified expense! Thanks in advance Graeme
  13. Agree with Roger, probably anti-rattle. No, both the same. Cheers Graeme
  14. Graham, I have Mazda Miata(MX5) seats and full travel is available, they also recline without touching the roll bar leg. Cheers Graeme
