  1. On lever arm I always fit longer set screws 2" and nyloc the back, then it is secure. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  2. As it is now welded in and fitted can you not alter it after Rimmers has compensated you (if they ever do) Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  3. Viking Radiators. Father and son outfit.Been around for years and know their stuff. 01895 831300 Denham Uxbridge
  4. Ian have you tried the tune over the wifi that Emerald can do for you? It is a brilliant service. Sorted me out a couple of times before the rolling road and after. Have you and Mark been in touch with Dan regarding the airbox? Regards HarryTR5 Nutter
  5. On early fuel tanks this was a common problem of cornering with no baffles or swirl pots inside resulting in fuel climbing up the sides and away from the outlet at the bottom. Leyland rectified this later on. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  6. What a timely reminder. I never thought of replacing these as they always looked good from the outside. Next job..... Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

    There is/was a faulty batch and the clouding up is from the shroud painted black.I tried to wash out with white spirit and also thinners which got some off but gave up because the shroud is in the way and was cutting in to my pinkys!

    Is my hub scrap?

    The spline should grip and not turn.There is some suspect ones out there with the splines not so pronounced. I guess these are the front ones as the rears are taper seat. I fitted the uprated Alloy hub kit from CDD although Stuart recommends another supplier. There is always something to do and don't you just love this hobby of ours. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

    Hi Mark, Send me a PM with your email address and I will send some photos. My mate, who made the airbox still has the pattern and may make you one although I have not asked him yet. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  10. Dave I ordered two of these and they were too small to go on the rad neck. Yours obviously fits and is the correct size. I just threw mine away and must of come from a different manufacturer in China. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

    Well done Ian, Would get the 1000 miles under your belt and let Emeralds loose. Dave or John know our cars very well and have a great understanding of them. You will come away with a huge grin when they release the horse power (and torque more importantly). As you know we made up an airbox from scratch and used the original air filter with K&N in the housing but cut a square out to get more air in. It made 205 BHP but was a trick engine built by a racer. Emeralds will look after you as they are a great company and know what they are doing. Maybe see you in Bicester scramble January 5th 2020 as a few of us are going to it subject to weather of course. Tickets in advance only. Regards Harry
  12. Yes they look identical to the original ones. Don't think the TRShop does these any more. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

    Well our MOT testers like them and do not fail.Our insurance likes them and will not invalidate a claim. So long as the beam pattern is the same go for it. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  14. Is it a competition one I wonder as they can come in with a bang. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  15. Get a length of 1/8th dia rod . Cut it nearly in half of the correct measurement. Push the escutcheon in as far as you can, then the handle exposing the securing hole. Push the length of the rod in to the cut and wiggle it back and forwards till it snaps off.Bingo you are there.I tend to go in the opposite hole with a thin blade screwdriver to hold all things together and knock the rod into the hole pushing out the screwdriver. Job done. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  16. Sorry to hear that.I have also known Ken a great many years and he worked in theTriumph factory the same time as my Dad and they knew each other alongside Dave Gleed and others. Get well soon Ken. Regards Harry Dent.
  17. Thats brilliant! Thanks for sharing. TR Shop had new ones made with a modern motor some years ago which I have in my TR5 and looks the part. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

    Lots of interest and I bet it goes as Gary (TRGB) tends to always get sales at the show. Lovely lovely car. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  20. I got chatting as usual and cleanly forgot about the 12 meet, sorry. Did speak to Conrad and Tom Boyd. My daughter and partner are showing their Alfa Romeo maroon 155 and on the Alfa stand with Kevin McClouds (Grand Design's) Alfa. Even I have not managed to show a car there and my daughter has beat me to it. Regards HarryTR5 Nutter

    It will go for that price I am sure.It is Harry Eatons and is close as possible to factory. It gave me the inspiration to paint my TR5 in Jasmine all them years ago. A wonderful car and correct in every detail. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
  22. Dave, I also had a twin Busch two poster fitted into my garage and wish I had done it years ago, mind you they have just re-tooled a smaller one for home garages which siuts me fine and just goes in.I cut a slot in the ceiling to raise my surrey topped car up into it. Well worth the money. I had to have equal arms as the short ones were just too short. Cost me though but hey ho. With an adjustable up and down stool on wheels (Halfords) I can whiz around underneath to my hearts content. Well worth it. Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
