  1. My TR4 is now completely dismantled and I am now starting the process of rebuilding. Engine,gearbox and chassis now completed. The front springs look fairly recent, they have a blue and green stripe on them. What spec are they because I can not see it any where. Are Bastuk vertical links as good as *Moss (*none in stock) or are they all from the same source? Mine do look as they have wear looking at the peaks of the thread but can not compare with new if I do not have both in my hands. Going to fit new as a bit paranoid after losing a wheel on my then TR6 when the trunnion parted company with the vertical link. I knew why at the time after inspecting so are Bastuk as good as anything out there. Regards Harry tr5 Nutter
  2. No 1 Piston top dead centre both valves/ rockers closed No 4 valves/rockers equal lift on the rock. I did this and both the sprockets lined up just to check it. If it does not work I have cocked up. Standard parts nothing fancy on my TR4. Timed my TR5 with a timing disc and pointer as per book. Regards Harry
  3. Ok Mike. The hotel came back to me and the deal is the same as before.You must say it is for the Triumph Club as well as the TR Register although the Triumph they recognise more. Booked in now for Saturday Night. Regards Harry
  4. Mick, Have filled in the form for attending. The hotel is no where near from £99 on a Saturday night booking. including dinner for two and breakfast £261. or there about . Do you have a code for discount at the advertised price. Regards Harry
  5. Alan can I drop my one around. I have two one a two speed and one a single speed(TR4) i know roughly were you live but will need your address again. Please PM me. Regards Harry
  6. Graham, You welcome to have a play with mine to see if it is your mask at fault. I am in Hemel Hempstead as you know. If you still have my mobile no give me a ring. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  7. Revington solution with my added twist.It exits out of the vertical floor panel at least a couple of inches and NOT into the sill.This works for me and that is all that counts in my book.
  8. Ignore the doubters Nigel, I too had a health issue at the time and if I did not fit the power steering I would have got out of TR,S and would have so regretted it. Now enjoy. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  9. You are just going to love this piece of kit! I think I fitted mine in 2010 or there about. Best mod I have done to my TR5 and I have many on Jas. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  10. I rivnut mine (Tex) which leaves a thread insert to screw into and stops it moving on the base. Easy to do and works. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  11. Fit longer set screws 2" and nyloc the backs. 5/8" UNF if memory serves me well. Well done on finding it and welcome to our world. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  12. I built a TR4a with them and found the fit very good apart from the rear nearside inner wing which they were going to sort it on the next batch made (2018) so I hope sorted.
  13. If you want convincing, have a try in mine providing you have TR Register insurance. Regards Harry TR Nutter
  14. A member in North London Group has successfully converted his around three years ago and is delighted with the result.Modesty would probably exclude coming on here. I fitted CDD hydraulic power steering in 2009 ( I think, such a long time ago) and only remember it when driving others. With the many mods I have done on my TR5 this ranks as the best. Regards Harry
  15. Thanks all for your contributions. When I have finished the body work, I will then look at the engine again. Because we are not allowed out except for a daily walk etc I am forced to work in the garage (so you could say I am happy as a pig in sh*t) so things are progressing along. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
