  1. Have you tried taking the injectors out? If you have no fuel spraying out and the pump is running you may not have enough pressure for the injectors to open Check the pressure if possible, it could be the pump or the pressure relief valve; the relief valve could be fauly and not adequately allowing the injector to open or the pump is sluggish There could be other causes but these are the ones I have found recently; not something you would expect Cheers Gordon
  2. I saw one on a TR4 last weekend at Goodwood in the main car park, Gordon

  10. He said that the TR was June 1971; did he just count the rings in the tree , or did he find the log book in the trunk,,,,
  11. Both MVC 999G and MVC999H were false plates. I thought that last night with reg changing by one letter ,the sales brochure would have changed to coincide with that year's production, so that the leaflets were kept up to date As for the cobra wheels; they were the 'in' thing the 'bling' of the 70s Cheers Gordon
  12. Triumph brochures? The one with a TR6 and a blurred background got it, not the same Reg but close, CWK600L was in the sale brochure with the rear bumper of a red TR6 in the rain, in all my sales I have the sills are all black
  13. These are cobras on my TR4, they are different to the wolf race. I used to have cobras on my ford capri in 1976. They weren't too bad to keep clean as long as you kept on top of them I used to use solvo autosol I think the price of the TR is realistic as I think the price of other TRs is a bit low when you consider the price of other classics. If I had the money and space I would buy it! Pete - The TR blurred image on the sales brochure is MVC 999H Cheers Gordon
  14. Nice job Pete, Dont forget the earth spike ,,,,,,,,,, for the STATIC
