  1. They should go on the inside of the bumper, before you fit the irons, its to take up the curve of the bumper
  2. I'm looking for a set of Std big end bearings, where is going to be the best place to purchase? I haven't been able to find any info on the running clearance of this bearing to make sure I get the correct shells, does anybody have any info, it would be appreciated John
  3. Colin That's the same cap on CP TR5, so I would imagine its original. Trever Was your car a US import with carbs perhaps?
  4. Paul Which address are you using?, he must be very picky as to the ones he opens! John
  5. I have tried several times with Emails in the last months, but no response at all.
  6. Here's the Moss tool, price has gone up a lot https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr5-6/body-chassis/doors-fittings/weather-strip-clip-tool-gac9994x.html John
  7. @TR If you think the rubber is wrong or fitted wrong perhaps can you give a picture of what it should be then, hasn't anybody got an original they could post a picture please. Were's Saffi? John
  8. I think the new rubber pads are not correct, this is what's mine like, it has a groove to hold the rod that the new don't. This is more what it should like its from MGB #34 https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/mg/mgb-c-v8/body-chassis/bonnet-fittings/bonnet-fittings-mgb.html Hope this may help John
  9. A few thoughts, could it be the spot weld that holds on the bracket for the chain tensioner on the cover, and are there also some spot welds on the cover next to where the seal sits and allowing oil running down to the bottom, the seal looks to be square with the sleeve from the contact polish mark in your photo above. If you have the cover off with the seal in, put the sleeve back into the cover, and then fill the cover with some thinners, mount the cover high up so you can see underneath the seal area, that should show a wetness somewhere perhaps? It would be nice to have a photo of the actual leak from both sides of the pulley before you take it off again. The seal may need to bed in a few miles weeps a bit then dries up. Where are getting the seals from, is it worth getting one from a seal supplier take your cover and the sleeve for them to get the right dimensions, don't take your seals for comparison. How tight are you doing the pulley nut that relies on sealing the sleeve to the pulley. John
  10. Can you give us picture please of where you see the leak, it may well help in suggestions? John

    Gearbox rebuild

    I picked this up from Chris Witor site https://www.chriswitor.com/proddetail.php?prod=58391 This is for a TR 2000, but I think should be the same bearing. Read the numbers off the bearing. John

    Gearbox rebuild

    I got my kit from Moss, after the TR gearbox seminar with recommendation from P Cox. He thought the synchro cones were OK at that time it must 2 years + by now. I would find out which bearings they supply, the Moss ones are not RHP, I think would be worth the extra to get them John
  13. Yorkie It would be interesting to know what setup you have, are you still running a CAV filter? If you are, make sure if you do decide to change it, make sure you only fit a genuine Landrover one, any of the others I have found to be restrictive. I'm trying to find out if there is one of the many systems that is more prone to this issue than others, then we could all focus on a good outcome, and which one doesn't give as much trouble in the heat. John
  14. I often run the bonnet just un latched, on the safety, it certainly helps with the air flow. I don't think there is much fuel return from the MU, its the PRV that is heating the fuel, would be interesting to know if the Diaphragm type is better at not heating the fuel. John
  15. How much crank end float do you have? Have you got the oil thrower fitted https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr5-6/engine/engines-components/internal-engine-tr5-6.html John
