  1. Ethanol is evil stuff in old cars and causing many car’s to go up in flames. Ive had new rubber fuel line crack up within 2 years you should replace any rubber lines with the correct latest hose capable of withstanding this evil stuff
  2. Nice. How local o Kent are you and if not local what sort of cost was this by the time it arrived from Canada?
  3. About 10 yrs back I had my 68 charger dipped, neutralised and etch primed by o e of the best known companies. This car was a 1 owner car from CA and although rot free I wanted it absolutely mint in every respect. Well with 2 years (despite NEVER getting wet or damp) started to rot through doors and other area where it involved folded metal or traps. I discovered, in my subsequent research that I was not alone and guys with some very very valuable cars were literally watching them dissolve before their eyes. A big court case ensued (not by me but by a big classic car company) ive restored many cars and always blasted them. But leave the centres of large panels to save distortion

    Callipers

    Thanks David. I have access to lots of Jaguar Etype parts and thinking that maybe I can fall over some this end. Thank you for your help and advice. Do you use unrated callipers on your TR?

    Callipers

    David, what would they have been used on in a previous life? Unfortunately I’m not travelling up there. For less effort on the pedal. For example on a circuit with repeated use I’m sure a bigger calliper would be advantageous. Do the racing boys use standard callipers, if so I’m happy keep the std ones
  6. I machined my inlet manifold to match the hairy exhaust manifold I have. Prefer them matching

    Well I’m thinking perhaps with a quick lump they might struggle with enthusiastic driving

    Without going mad what is a good alternative bigger brake calliper for the 6. I’m thinking something off another make of car perhaps ? Would love a pair of AP’s or similar but this car owes me a ridiculous sum now and it still looks like a shed. Thx

    Exhaust Fumes

    If one pipe is getting hotter it would suggest its running lean or leaner if anything than the other bank but of course which is right?? Never used to get the smell of fines in the old days and I seem to get it in a few now. I reckon its this dodgy modern fuel.
  10. Can’t seem to find where members list is ??
  11. Thanks guys. Sean I’ve been around on here for 100 years or so. This is a question for a neighbour.
  12. For my neighbour, I made him buy a TR6 but it needs some mechanical fettling. Who hi do you Kent fellas use and would you recommend them? thx lee
  13. I fitted 45’s but only because that’s all they were producing at the time. Had an issue with my build though and engine no work out again.

    Radiator

    On this topic (as just fitted my rad without that issue) my top hose is much too big on internal diameter Is there a smaller bore available?
  15. Thanks Guys, didn't really want to file out the metal
