  1. X2 for the above.Stuart I think also uses/used this type, mine works well and smooth you can feel the notches on the dash control knob . Paul
  2. Glad to see its got a wing mirror - for safety reasons.
  3. Hi Gordon, You could ask me for £50 if you like. Delivered of course . Paul
  4. Yeah Yeah nice bumpers, nice car, nice garage and the sun is shining. Well at least we don't have Kangaroos to run into and dent the Bumper (area around whipsnade excepted). I am only jealous Graham Paul
  5. Like the correct position for the badges front and rear?. They look a little bit out from what I believe to be the original position. I stand to be corrected. Paul
  6. Hi Andy, Glad you got it sorted and your tale is cautionary guide to the rest of us travelling abroad. A picture paints a thousand words someone once said, that is why I always carry a copy of Moss and Rimmer parts catalogues so you can point to the parts causing the problem as well as ease of ordering. Paul
  7. All the above with an addition of a spare ignition barrel and keys. Cheap to buy and easy to fit should your ignition key break (as did mine) or indeed you lose your key. Paul
  8. Hi Ian My tr5 (PI) has a pheonix manifold fitted by previouse owner and you can see were it has been fettled to fit. I had to remove it recently for some work to be done and it was a pig to get back on but managed in the end. Paul

    Starting issues

    X2 Me too Paul
  10. Damson eh, Jammy bugger. They will start calling you Frank Ifield - YOD...L (those of a certain age will remember) Nice car Gordon Paul
  11. AARRRRRRRGH !!! Nigel as you are aware I am having exactly and I mean exactly the same trouble. The oil is leaking in the same place, dribbling down behind the pulley. My next oil seal will be my 3rd and before I start I was hoping for some resolution to surface. I Feel your pain, boy do I feal your pain. Paul
  12. A great watch. I am sure they must swear as well as have a good time. Am I jealouse - you bet.
  13. Hi Nigel I am thinking it might be the case with the timing cover also. I will try the pressure test to see if it is excessive and maybe the problem. If not I will have to source a new cover and will probably suffer the leak until later on in the season and strip it all down again. I did it last time with the bonnet off for ease of access so might do this again as it gives you chance to clean up a few things at the same time, Hey ho TRs are fun. Paul
  14. Hi Nigel, I am following this topic as I have exaexactly the same problem. I have replaced oil seal twice with double lip version and replaced sleeve, mine still has leak in exacrly the same place as it originally did . I am currently typing this underneath my car (its on a ramp) awaitng friend to view and try and help. I will let you know if I can fix problem. Not looking forward to removing everything again. Paul

  16. Me too on my TR5. Now I have said this I will be scared to go out in the rain cos you know what will happen.Doh.
  17. Just a thought, check inside the hole it left behind in case something is still there.
  18. Hi Guys Sounds like something floating about in the fuel tank and coming to rest now and then over exit for the fuel. One of our club members had a similar problem which turned out to be the small cardboard disc from a cap of fuel additive which fell in!!. Took a while and a lot of fishing about with a stick and pin thing to remove it. Paul
  19. Jealous, Who's jealous Paul
  20. Hi Stuart Me too for this. There is a lot on the forum about keeping the engine cooler and fuel evaporation problems, which cooling fan to use etc. This has to increase heat retention doesn't it? Paul
  21. Hi Mike Did you spray it yourself or have it done elsewhere. How did you go with the paint match. Paul (redrose)
  22. iani X2 You will save so much time/hassle in the future should you have a problem with pipes or tank or just want to clean up the boot area. My pump is also in the wheel arch and this gives you a little more space to use in the boot also. Paul
  23. Are you sure there is no one locked in the boot!
  24. MrG is too close to MG for my liking. Welcome to the forum Bob Paul
