  1. +1 for the CDD cv shafts and hubs
  2. Devon registration as well,looks tidy and nice coat of Valencia blue. Might be worth checking quality of coolant and if it's not been used much in recent years flush and renew
  3. Pit stop on a 20 mile run,near Newton Abbot, Devon
  4. Hello  Tim,

    I've  been  following the renovation of your  hardtop. I did ask where  you got the headlining from  and you mentioned TRShop, I called them  ,they weren't sure if they had the lining in stock but if they did it would be £400 plus,does  that tally with what you paid?.

    Hope you don't mind me asking, 

    Best regards

  5. A bit of exercise for me and the car,Haldon forest south of Exeter today
  6. Where did you source the headlining kit?
  7. I don't have the link but Revington have an electronic solution,expensive, but does away with the ball ache of the dog drive

    This will be my fifth run ,I will be co driving with James Cooper, entry 17
  9. Racetorations have a similar co-axial clutch,in fact ,it may well be the same.Fitted in 2007 it has been smooth and reliable for 55k miles,excellent bit of kit and a genuinely good 'upgrade' , Cheers, Laurence
  10. Thanks Roger and Stuart,I'll speak to Revington ,bearing James's comments in mind, Cheers Laurence
  11. Alec' s words are even more pertinent today than in 1979.Triumphs in general and TRs in particular look incredibly vulnerable compared to contemporary vehicles. I have a roll bar fitted and front hub strengthening kit but does anyone know where the tank shield and suspension strengthening kit can be purchased. Apologies in advance if this has already been discussed in other threads , Cheers Laurence
  12. I've searched the relevant forums but not found the sequence to remove and replace the rear springs on my TR5. Will it be necessary to unbolt the drive shafts as well as the shock absorber?.I assume the rear antiroll bar will have to be at least loosened if not removed
  13. The FB page that Darren has set up works well,it's not for everyone but personally I prefer the format to traditional forums. Cheers Laurence
  14. Racetorations do ducting in fiberglass coloured black,simple but effective

    Ebay 5

    late example,the final digit denotes overdrive
  16. Nice Bury registration
  17. The reviews are generally excellent Tim . I've got the vredestein sprint classic and they tick most of the required boxes as well,the only downside with t trac might be that they are classified as summer tyres tho probably not an issue in the uk, Cheers Laurence

    Expensive TR5

    I wonder how many of the very early TR5s ie CP1-20, actually survive, seems like a few. Like others, I recall seeing CP2,in a rough state, at TRBitz, cheers, Laurence
