  1. Gentlemen, Can someone please tell me the thread form of the studs which hold the screen vent outlets in place? Thanks Graham
  2. Gentlemen, Would any of the above change if LED indicator bulbs are fitted? In the Lucas unit referred to there is a relay, does this have to be changed? Graham

    If you are up for making your own overdrive controller go to www.worldphaco.net. You will find instructions how to make one and how it is wired into the overdrive circuit. I have made one for each of my TRs, both have A type overdrives and they work very well. Each one cost me less than a tenner. Thoroughly recommended. Graham

    Hi Chris, Try the Flyingenglishmen on EBay. The last time I was up at his workshop he had a couple of Surrey’s in his store and he may well have a TR6 rad shield as well. His email address is Flyingenglishmen @hotmail.com. Graham

  7. Gentlemen, A couple of questions please. What size and thread is the 45’ elbow that comes out of the cylinder head to the heater valve. A few years ago there was an article in TR Action showing how a stainless steel bush with a plug was used to replace the gearbox filler plug. Can someone tell me what size and thread the original type gearbox filler plug is please. Thanks Graham
  8. A couple years ago I fitted some new repro. wheel boxes. When I fitted the old wiper arms they would not fix firmly to the splines. I bought new arms (Trico as fitted originally), same problem. When I fitted the new arms to the old wheel boxes they fitted and held. So, in my opinion the problem of wiper arms not fitting to the splines of repro. wheelboxes is due to the splines not being up to scratch. To resolve the problem I bought a pair of “heavy duty” ones from Revingtons, the clamp sort. When fitting them I pushed them hard onto the splines and the tightened the screws up tight. No problems since. I think the solution shown by Chris could weaken the shaft that holds the splined end on depending on the size of the self tapping screw. In my view another case of repro parts not being up to the required standard. Graham
  9. Hi Paul, Buy used originals, try the flying Englishmen on eBay or one of the TR specialists in the UK. Graham
  10. Roger, The Rimmer reamer looks totally different to an expanding reamer. On the Rimmer one the cutting flutes are in the middle of the tool and a little way in from the end, not on the end like an expanding one. Graham
  11. Gentlemen, Please excuse my ignorance but can you fit an LED tube in a fluorescent light fitting and, if so, is it a straight remove old tube and fit new tube? Graham

  13. Gentlemen, I am starting to restore my 1962 TR4 and restoring parts as I remove them. I am now working on the two dash vents. When I removed them the seals on each end of them, rubber, had deteriorated to crumble nature and thus will need replacing. According to the Moss catalogue the seals are no longer available. I assume a rubber or foam extrusion are my only options. What have other members used please. Graham
  14. Roger, “ little rod that keeps the two balls apart” Take care you don’t get banned from here. Graham
  15. Roger, I have sent you a PM. Graham
