  1. Hi Andy, The original fans aren't much use even if you can find one undamaged. I used a Spal booster fan from Europa spares, similar to the one used in the Clayton kit. https://www.europaspares.com/heater-box-fan-only.html The heater box will need modification to fit it, but the difference in performance is worth it. Cheers Graeme
  2. That is a TR5/6 hood front hood rail. The TR4A has a different arrangement with over centre clips. Cheers Graeme
  3. Hi Mike, For the TR5 and TR250, the factory painted the SS beads along with the bodyshell. A lot of people, me included, prefer the SS beads as fitted to the TR4A, hence why you see so many not painted. Cheers Graeme
  4. Eddie, I had to have the saloon flange machined slightly as there is a raised area on the propshaft flange to help with location. Graeme
  5. I thought that too. Graeme
  6. Enjoyed seeing that again, great close racing. Thanks Kevin. Graeme
  7. Dave, The best replacement valve is the Four Seasons/Everco 74648 Heater Valve. https://www.amazon.com/Four-Seasons-74648-Heater-Valve/dp/B000C2UVQ4 Cheers Graeme
  8. GGR 77E, my first TR4A along with my future wife Sue in Scotland 1976.
  9. Eddie, I recently discovered that the TR250 boot has a slightly different mounting hole position for the boot support compared with the 4. The boot does not open as far as my TR4A and I can only assume this is to prevent the boot making contact with the larger fuel filler cap. May be worth checking so you don't damage the paintwork. Cheers Graeme

    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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Our TR4A at Salem, Oregon in August 2018, our 40th Wedding anniversary. Graeme
