  1. 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
  2. I’ve uncovered four pretty tatty hub caps and a passenger door which doesn’t look bad at all. PM me if interested JJC
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Rob - thanks that’s a great help. JJ C
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  10. Another fault has appeared. Stuck in traffic or idling temperature indicates fine. Running at 3000 rpm or more the gauge goes right up. Knock it out of gear and the temperature drops quickly. Anyone experienced that? JJC

    Fuel pump

    Thanks for the replies. I’ll trust to the original AC diaphragm which replaced the failed after market one but will look at a petrol tap because a failed diaphragm drains the petrol tank into the sump under gravity. JJC

    Fuel pump

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds as though I can risk the original AC diaphragm to replace the failed after market one. Bearing in mind that a failed diaphragm allows the tank to drain petrol into the sump under gravity think I might investigate a petrol tap . JJC
  13. This post also appears on the 4 forum. I’d be interested to know how many of us have been running pumps with the original AC diaphragm with no problems due to unleaded. Thanks. JJC

    Fuel pump

    I put this on the general forum but didn’t get answers. So this is a repeat, sorry about that. I’d like to know if many of us have been running original pumps with unleaded with no problems with the original AC diaphragm. Many thanks. JJC I’ll post it on the side screen forum as well.
  15. I’ve just had a failure of a recently rebuilt pump. Actually more than just a failure a real pain. Think where the petrol goes when the new diaphragm fails. And it doesn’t stop. As I had a box of old pumps in various states of disrepair I found an original AC diaphragm. Encouragingly labelled “genuine”. Fitted it and it doesn’t leak, yet. My question is how many out there still have original pumps which have suffered modern petrol? Will my AC diaphragm survive unleaded? JJC
