    Hardtop removal

    How an old person takes the hardtop off on his own RVWP's idea. JJC
  2. Thanks - ordered. JJC
  3. Anyone got a part number handy for the replacement stop light switch? Think I used a BMW one but can’t find the bill and it’s gone duff. Thanks. JJC

    Rear airflow

    On the General Forum there’s a post about mesh wind deflectors. Peter W says that wind tunnel tests on (I think) an MG showed a reduction in drag coefficient with the mesh present. Would be interesting to know if a mesh deflector stops the air flow over the boot lid reversing. Can we persuade a mesh owner to do the experiment? JJC

    Rear airflow

    Alan. I think that saves me modifying my wool as that was my next step. That combined with the sideways flow at the edges pretty much says it all about exhaust positioning. JJC

    Rear airflow

    For many years our 6 had a wheelbarrow exhaust system, it also suffered from fumes in the cab and consequently smelly clothes. At the last rebuild a few years ago I fitted a standard exhaust and no longer suffered from fumes. So I was curious about airflow. Made up a set of wool tell tales hanging from the boot. RVWP (of this parish) observed then we swapped over. The wool only goes up to horizontal possibly because it’s a bit heavy so unable to say anything about airflow back up over the boot which was what I was looking for. What I did notice was that at both sides the airflow goes out beyon
  7. Bonnet catches as used before the Dzus type catches. Only for early car purists I guess! Oil filter attachment looks as though modified for a cooler, no idea where it came from. Last call for TR4 hub caps then they’re going to the tip. JJC
  8. I’ve uncovered four pretty tatty hub caps and a passenger door which doesn’t look bad at all. PM me if interested JJC
  9. I’ve put a post on the 2 forum about clearing stuff from my loft. Also just spotted 4 hub caps with bad chrome. Free to anyone who wants them. JJC
  10. Odds and ends going spare as my TRing days are over (too old). Bomb starters, clutch covers, speedo drive end cap, Lockheed rear axle, rear w/cylinder (new), w/s lower seal, sump - bits like that. Really don't want them going on the tip. PM if interested. JJC
  11. And if anyone wants a 4 exhaust manifold and down pipe send me a pm. Also free I don’t want to put it on the tip. JJC
  12. Rob - thanks that’s a great help. JJ C
  13. How many amps should a standard alternator deliver? Is there a way of checking performance other than turning the headlights on and looking at the ammeter?JJC
  14. Be grateful if someone would pm me Paul Bishop ‘s (think I’ve remembered his name correctly) phone number. A friend is thinking about seats. Thanks, JJC

    Overheating fault

    Roger that’s what I was hoping. Easiest to fix.
