  1. Hi Geoffrey I did exactly the same as what you are planning. I'd wanted a TR6 since I was a lad but had never got round to it. I hired a TR6 from a place in Otley (Yorkshire) a good few years ago (I can't find a link to the company now so don't know if they are still there). My wife and I took it up to the Lakes for a weekend and had a great time. It was on that trip that my wife said we should get one of these. That was it - the green light! I started looking the week we got back and a local TR guy found mine for me. Had it ever since. As has been mentioned though, TRs can vary considerably. I don't know whether my hire car was a PI or carb model. It was quite a late one (N reg I think). It seemed OK and drove pretty well, although I had never driven another one so I had no level to work with. Having said that on the Monday when I was driving it back to the hire place the heavens opened and the rain came into the car. Not a drip - it actually poured in! I was soaked. It didn't put me off though. The hire company said that it was coming off the road to be renovated - not before time! Good luck in your search for a hire car - and a TR6. Roger
  2. Happy birthday Alan. Hope you have a great day. Cheers! Rog
  3. I bought a CTEK MXS 10 today to charge the battery on my son's 1994 Corolla. I read a few reports and reviews and this one seemed to stand out. To be fair the battery was new but I'd left the ignition on for over a week after working on the car (idiot). This one charges a battery from absolutely dead (which it was) and has a few options. It seems to have done the trick! I'll know in the morning when I try to take it back to him! Rog
  4. Lovely car and looks like a nice project. I can heartily recommend Bob's (Lebro) LED light upgrades for the front, back and brake lights. Makes a big difference. Roger
  5. What do you think that the 'B' at the end of the number means? I can find 75144 but not a 75144B. Rog
  6. And look - found the Lucas PDF. Having the full name certainly helped! http://www.waghornswood.net.nz/Manuals_01_18/Vehicles/Triumph/Lucas/lucas_equipment_1948_1962_cars.pdf
  7. Thanks for all the input. I'll try to find the Lucas info online - I did have a quick look before posting on the forum but couldn't find anything. Mine is NOS as far as I can tell and is certainly not stuck! It runs well. The grease is not hard at all. Rog
  8. Hi Folks I posted this on the General TR Technical Forum, but thought it might help putting it here too - I have a wiper motor that I am trying to identify. It's a Lucas CRT 12v motor with reference number 75144B. There are some markings on it - MODEL CRT 12V 2 60 75144B I bought it a long time ago from a well respected TR guy as fitting a TR2. Can anyone confirm that it is from a TR2 and whether it's fitted on anything else? Thanks Rog

  11. Hi Roger,

    I bought a lovely commission plate from you last week and was wondering if i could buy another one and you can have is stamped for me?

    Many Thanks,

    Nick

  12. Bit late on this one - but happy birthday Conrad. Hope you've managed to have a great day. Cheers! Rog

  14. Excellent - glad that bits done. I know it wasn't easy. Fingers crossed for a quick turn round with the DVLA. Rog
