  1. Belgravia Classic Car Show on Sunday. A few Triumphs and many millions of pounds worth of unusual and stunning cars. A great day out. Nigel
  2. Crown Classics changed my cam and did some head work a couple of years ago and it has run perfectly ever since. Nigel
  3. Another topic I should have finished but here goes. Half way to ANGOULÊME last year the vibrations caused the flimsy bracket to snap so disconnected it and did without. Have now taken it to pieces and done away with the mounting bracket, drilled a couple of holes throug the body and screwed it back in place. it now sits flush and nothing to break so another job done! Nigel
  4. Just realised I had never finished this Topic. Shortened the frame so that it was the same size asthe original, some careful bending, repositioned some of the poppers and added the missing ones and with Rogers Mods no problem at 80( I mean 70!) so now happy with this so probably won’t be using the header rail I acquired unless I get bored and need another project.( little chance of that as my wife has a long list of modifications to the house!) cheers Nigel
  5. I’ve had a new one sitting in the garage for the last five years, one day I’ll get around to replacing the split one! Nigel

    Her first start

    Hi Waldi At Classic Le Mans a few years ago we watched an engine being changed in the pits. It would not fire, they checked everything except the timing despite the audience telling them it was probably 180 out. Eventually they checked and it was.started straight away. So worth a check as even the experts can get this wrong. Nigel
  7. Recently I had trouble with my lighting switch, and when I removed it I found that part of it had melted inside due to shorting when using the flasher. Rather than get another repro switch, I dug out my original TR250 switch which is of much better quality.Also decided to use oeiginal indicator switch which is also better quality. Only downside is that as the car is now RHD the switches are on the wrong side, but I no longer turn the lights on accidentally when indicating Nigel
  8. Just bought a new Varta Blue Dynamic G8 battery from Battery Megastore, just over £100 including VAT. This is the biggest battery that will fit in the available space. This replaces the same battery I’ve had for the last 8 years. I hadn’t used the car for 2 months and forgot to connect the ctec charger. Tried a normal charger but couldn’t revive it. Nigel
  9. Hi Andy the Clayton fan has 3 wires for the 3 speeds plus an earth. If you use the original switch then the switch itself will give you off plus two speeds. You therefore can only have 2 speeds using the original switch so have to decide which speed on the Clayton heater not to use and don’t connect this wire. Can’t remember the colours but trial and error connecting direct to the battery will show the different speeds. hope this makes sense but recovering from a bit of a hangover. Nigel
  10. I have a Clayton heater which is 3 speed, but the original switch is for a two speed fan. I left the slow speed wire terminated with an insulated connector in case I ever decided to use it. Nigel
  11. I originally sprayed the car at college with assistance from the tutor. A couple of years ago I decided to have a professional job and did all the stripping down myself. There was only minor body work to do, and they had it for a month fitting it in between insurance jobs. A great job and £2000 cash. There are a few imperfections but I prefer driving to polishing. Nigel
  12. Slightly off topic, my snaps and poppers are very weak - who supplies the best as mine will pop off with the slightest pressure cheers nigel
  13. Hi Roger I had my diff rebuilt by Jay at Crown Classics and it’s been perfect for the last 4000 miles. Very happy with all the work they have done. Nigel
  14. I bought 4 from Moss a few months, but have lost the receipt so can’t check the part number. in the Surrey Top section they are NCA in one part but somewhere else on the same page they are available. Nigel
  15. I do find find the DOT too close to other thing as I’m always touching the wrong bit on my iPad and usually end up on the op’s details page. per haps Wayne could increase the spacing. Nigel
