  1. Hi Would like to find the current owner of the above TR4 ( possibly dormant awaiting ressurection) as I have details of the first owner including period colour pictures I would like to pass on. Kind regards Andrew
  2. That would be Darryl at Racetorations at least 32 years ago.  Did it cost much ? Thanks for the reply.

      Hi Richard

      The price was very fair, the workmanship was excellent, Sam (the workshop Manager) is an perfectionist, the result is an axle better than at any time in the previous 23 years of ownership.

      The axle needs to come out of the car to set up correctly, i'd also recommend new inner and outer bearings are fitted at the same time, it's good for the next 50 years then.


      Gentle drive to Gainsborough and an overnight in an air B&B, perhaps take in the sights of Lincoln City?


      Take care



  3. Hi Richard. The guys who built your engine (all those years ago) rebuilt my TR3 Girling axle last year, fantastic job, they fitted new bearings, Crown wheel and Pinion the diff is now silent and the excessive previous play not detectable. I drove over 3500 miles within the first month of use including last years Triumph Liege, Brescia Liege event. Kind regards Andrew
  4. Hi Conrad I recall Dave Gleed selling a speaker for a side screen car, it was round in shape and fitted in the large hole in the o/s scuttle panel. Not sure this is the reply you wanted. kind regards Andrew
  5. Depending on how early, the earliest frames were trimmed in a fine grain black material. Andrew
  6. Hi Stuart thank you for your replies, the second option would be an option if the OE cable straps prove elusive. kind regards Andrew
  7. Thank you Alan for your reply and clarification, yes it is the 3 clear plastic straps I require. Kind regards Andrew
  8. Hi Can anyone assist in advising where I can source the Stanpart wiring loom Strap (Part number 131831) fitted to Commision number CT15053, there are three straps fitted to the O/S inner wing they appear clear or white in the photograph I have attached below. I have been unable to find the part number listed with all the usual suppliers. Kind regards Andrew
  9. Great photo Iain, interestingly the factory colour in '57 for the red hardtop on a beige car was "Sunset" red (a Standard colour) and slighly darker than the TR Signal red. My hardtop matches the main car colour of spa White.
  10. I bought mine from Dave Gleed's stall at the international, original NOS, worth a look on Dave's stall if you are attending the spares day @ Stoneleigh in February. Andrew
  11. When attending any auction never forget to read the small print, for this auction house, if the hammer falls @ £10000. , the actual price for the purchaser would be £11200.00 when the 10% + VAT buyers fee is added to the hammer price. In addition, hefty storage charges can be applied if the car isn't removed on the day of sale, this is often the case when the auction is held at a third party location. All Auction houses are different, I understand mainstream car auctions (BCA for example) actually charge a premium for counting cash. The term "Buyer Beware" has never been more apt.
  12. Hi Pete I think you have omitted an important piece of information here, I understand The original (badly damaged) engine block was not 6 feet away from the replacement, this is not someone glibly re inventing an identity!
  13. Hi Tony Looking forward to seeing you sideways somewhere very special on Friday night :-) Keep it on the black stuff! Kind regards Andrew
