    HT leads ends for spark plaugs

    +1 to Alec's comment. I got a set of leads for my Sprint engined TR7 from MrRetroLeads. He made the coil lead to my spec to sort my car for no extra cost. Excellent serve.

    Period British car articles

    A great collection if little frustrating as you have to open the documents before you know what it is.. Incidentally you can view the MotorSport archive for free: https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/archive

    Which Tool?

    If you keep your eyes open you may find other jaws to use in the tool Graeme mentions.

    Multi Meter

    I used an analog Gunson Testune multimeter for yeas which does the traditional volts, amps and ohms + dwell and tachometer. Added a digital Draper multimeter 3 or so years ago. The draper has proved itself and was cheap and cheerful.

    Best workshop manual for reference.

    There is a link to the shop on the website: http://www.tr-registershop.co.uk/ Or get a pdf from my website: http://vitessesteve.co.uk/Servicemanuals I recommend getting both. A real paper copy can be read anywhere. + you can print off pages from the PDF to use use in the garage.
