  1. Thanks all for your help, much appreciated. I changed the fuel filter and it seems better already, less noise and smoother. I have had the car 12 years, it's a very early CR, built January1973. Funny, I know I have changed the filter at least once before, but what I think of as recent could be years ago! I still think the restoration work is "new", since the car is 47 years old, but all the restoration stuff, including the pump. is itself 25 years old of course. If it ain't broke, don't fix it I reckon. By the way, it is a Bosch 996 pump, found its number. Thanks again chaps, keep tinkering till we can drive again-now to refit the standard road springs again-anone want a set of hardly used uprated ones-just a little too firm for my ageing posterior!
  2. Thanks Nigel, checking the pressure would be the first thing to do. Mike, that sounds like a good addition to the set up too.
  3. Hi all, hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these unusual times. Spending (even) more time tinkering in the garage during lockdown, I have been looking at my fuel pump. The car was completely restored in the mid 90s and it looks like they installed an old style Bosch pump and left everything else alone, just as fitted by Triumph. I know the prv was replaced at the time though. The car has always run pretty well and I haven't checked the fuel pressure yet, but the pump is very noisy on start-up and runs quite noisily when on the move. The car was cutting out occasionally just briefly for a split second last time I was able to drive it, but I'm not sure that was fuel related. I have bought a new filter and thought I'd just try that, but I'm wondering: Do I have a Bosch pump here? Is there any benefit in mounting it vertically? Should I put in a relay? Is it worth shelling out on the full monty-new pump/filter/modern prv? Searching the forums this is not a new topic-hopefully it will contribute to keeping you busy while we are "socially distanced"! All help much appreciated.
  4. Here's mine being sociable before the current crisis, and now-socially distanced!
  5. Done now, all looks fine, just the fiddling around to fit them left to go!
  6. Thanks chaps cutting now. Noticed they are not the same each side, the seat belt mounting projects out further away from the seat on passenger side.
  7. Hi I'm in the same position thinking the same thing-did you cut it off and was it OK? TIA Phil
  8. I had this-just needed to bend the stay slightly to fix it completely.
  9. My CR is the same, although the choke cable takes a more direct route from the bulkhead rather than running over to the inner wing and back and yes, it is a twin cable, one going to the MU lever.

    Lighting Issues

    Well, since I had been dismantling the steering column the area where that multiway connector lives could have been disturbed. Having spent hours playing with switches and connections over the last day or two, I just gave the multiway connector a wiggle and everything came back to life.I'll take it apart and clean all the connections. Thank you so much for that advice Roger-much appreciated!

    There is no power on any wire at the switch in the on position

    Will do Roger-yes, I meant no power NR with the switch in the on position.

    Lighting Issues

    need some help guys-searched and plenty have had issues before me but can't find a way forward. I recently replaced the steering column bushes on my 1973 TR6 (a fun job, but that's another story!) Since then I cannot get the headlights to work properly. I believe all the connectors are correct and the switchgear works fine. I have noticed there is no live feed to the column switch and I think it should be live through the red/brown wire that goes back to the dash light switch. The only live feed to the column switch is the thin brown "flash to pass" one, which is working. earth points all seem good 9unless there's one I don't know about) Anyone any ideas?
