  1. Pretty sure that 301466 is standard camshaft. Mike
  2. The useable range of EVs has improved a lot in recent years. An EV running out of charge is the same as an ICE running out of fuel, and in an EV you have many more warnings going off in the car many miles before it completely stops - in fact an EV will attempt to eke out the remaining charge by automatically disconnecting any ancillaries (such as seat heating, climate control) as the charge level drops below set points. A total failure as described by Ian would suggest the 12v battery was also dead flat. As Rob says the BMS should not let the 12v battery get so low nothing functions, so i
  3. As well as using a strip of rubber glazing gasket to great effect under the front lip of the header rail on my TR4 like Roger does, I also fashioned a couple of small plugs for the 2 surrey fixing holes in backlight top section. This has more or less eliminated another source of noise when the surrey top is in the boot, as the rushing (well, it is a TR) air passes over the top of the backlight frame. Mike
  4. Moss still list the Smartscreen: https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr2-4a/electrical-system/wipers-washers/smartscreen-wiper-systems.html However a number of us in North London have found it unreliable on both the single speed and 2 speed model wipers. My experience in a TR4 was that it tended to have a mind of its own sometimes, behaving erratically. Contacting the manufacturer didn't yield an answer so I pulled it out and wired in a flick switch in place of the rheostat for single wipes.
  5. Reviving this thread, I am in need of an unbent 4/4A front plate, if anybody can help please pm me. (David F did suggest a lead (thanks) but it has drawn a blank) Mike
  6. Ralph, The earlier cars had a larger bore master cylinder, changed during the TR4 run from 0.75" to 0.70" . Rear wheel slave cylinders were changed from 0.75" to 0.70" around the same time. This wasn't related to any servo fitment, but to reduce pedal pressure I believe. Mike
  7. Greg, Sorry, my top is on the car at the moment. Have a look at the parts drawings here: https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/tr2-4a/weather-equipment/hard-tops/surrey-top-fittings-tr4-4a-1961-67.html Mike

  10. Hi Roger, Sorry, my hardtop is aluminium. Mike
  11. One small point that hasn't been mentioned about the original "tuck in" front fixing arrangement is that it is much easier to store the surrey fabric in the boot, useful when boot and rear bench space may be at a premium on long tours. Incidentally wind noise can be greatly reduced by feeding a length of small section glazing gasket under the lip, removing in seconds when you need to do the tuck.
  12. Looks good on a 4A, but maybe a bit blingy on a 4 (no side chrome strip)?
  13. This is a neat way of doing touchup:
  14. Moss and others do extra long wheel studs, just be careful that your conical nuts don't bottom out before fully tightened against the wheel. Studs can be shortened to suit. Mike
  15. Hi Rich, Yes, I have a set - exactly where you said I would find them! PM me. Mike
