  1. Good afternoon Keith

    As a former practice manager (of one of the largest in Scotland), a GP practice has a legal requirement to ensure your information is correct.  Don't know who you contacted previously, but suggest you speak to / meet the manager.  They can highlight the "incorrect" information, but will have to have a clinician confirm a medical check before it is deleted.  There should be a note put in your file advising what was deleted & why to avoid any future problems of say insurance companies thinking your records had been tampered with to facilitate a claim.

    Regards Duncan

    Calling all Sapphire Blue TR6 Owners

    +1, not sure if others took in a sample, I took the car in

    My old Pirelli tyres stamped 367F

    Surely these would gain points for originality on a trailered queen ?

    Shaved doors

    Depending on the age of the car, it might require at least a driver's side mirror.

    Hylomar exhaust sealer query

    Seems an appropriate place to quote Michael Caine's character in The Italian Job !

    Overdrive stopped working

    Steven, did you check the electrical connection under the car onto the solenoid ? That came adrift on mine, suddenly no overdrive.

    4a/5/6 softtop differences

    The header rail on the windscreen & the method of attachment differs as well.

    CV joint in driveline query

    The propshaft UJ is maybe 6 years old, maybe 20k miles, totally wrecked ! The CVs were installed 15 months ago, due to a drive shaft UJ being snapped by a rock. The diff was out for inspection (no damage). So not sure if the UJ might have been worn & missed 15mths ago, damaged by the incident & missed, maybe the propshaft fell & hit the floor damaging the UJ, or the CV joints have aggrivated it.
  10. Ok, another slightly weird query, I do like them ! Has anyone had any problems with the UJ between the prop shaft & the differential, after fitting CV joints between the differential & the wheels ?

    Electrical component question

    Many thanks all, I probably took the wiring straight off the battery (with an inline fuse). The satnav does not work off the computer, which is why I think I fried it. I did like the old girl, she only sent me the wrong way occasionally, always after a period of non use.
  12. I am looking for the correct name of a component - poor brain can't think of it. I think I upset my satnav in the TR as the voltage from the battery probably fluctuated too much for it. I know there is a component which will limit / adjust the input of 13 to 16 volts to a constant output of 12v, If anyone can recommend any particular ones, I would be appreciative. Many thanks Duncan
  13. Many thanks all, I might just send it away to a pro, the annoying thing is that it was recalibrated about 2 years ago, I probably didn't seat the speedo back in well enough when I put it back on the car. Ce la vie !
  14. Hi All My speedo drive cable snapped & the end ( I think about 2 mm ) is stuck in the housing on the speedometer. Any ideas how to extract it ? Appreciated

    Battery

    Stuart, check which way round the battery terminals are, as some modern batteries are the wrong way round or back to front for a TR6
