  1. Hi Thanks for all the replies and advice, I will probably go for the standard Moss items as the use and mileage of the car is minimal... Phil..
  2. Just looked again at the moss site, part No-s 208636 standard and TT4016 competition both pictures show the 2nd leaf continuing up around the bush, perhaps a mistake on thier site.. Phil..
  3. I had the originals retempered by ML Welding in Portsmouth who used to be McKinneys spring manufacturers when I bought the car in 2007, they were ok to start with but one side has dropped more than the other and I fitted a small spacer to even them up so I thought that since they have been done once it would be best to renew them as long as I can be sure of the quality of them.. Phil..
  4. Hi Stuart I thought I was looking at the standard springs, will have another look, the difference I picked up was the curve of the spring continuing up and around the front bush on the Moss picture, standard springs will do as the car is only used for normal driving but over the years the back end seems to sunk a bit especially when loaded a little. I assume that the Moss springs are ok.. Cheers Phil..
  5. Hi All Looking for new rear springs for my tr4 Rimmer are out of stock at the moment Moss have them in stock, they look slightly different at the front bush end to the Rimmer picture, any recommends from you guys? Cheers Phil..
  6. Hi Rich I replaced my bullet mirrors with Ital 467 mirrors from Vintage Supplies LTD, (vintage car parts) mainly because the chrome had failed badly on both mirrors, the passenger side however had been useless since fitted, before I through them away I took then apart and found that you would be able to redrill the bullet piece of the mirror and turn it in further to the driver, whether this would look quite correct on the car looking from the front would be personal choice.. Phil...
  7. Hi Roy The ad is in the wanted section of the classifieds, Hi Lebro Found the TR Shop to be very helpful, they checked whether the tr4 system was the same diameter as the 4a so I would be able to use the 4a manifold I have and use a down pipe and 2 into 1 and shorten the 1st pipe but it is a different diameter. Phil..
  8. Thanks Rod all sorted, now in the wanted section.. Phil..
  9. Hi all I put a wanted add on the classified section but somehow its ended up in the cars for sale section, not very good at this stuff (obviously) and can't see how to move it or repost in the correct section, any advise please.. Phil..
  10. Hi All I have just fitted the Holden Ital 467 mirrors that I ordered they did cover up the holes from the bullet mirrors (just) and look good quality, the nearside mirror does turn in far enough to be able to see satisfactorily. Cheers Phil..
  11. Hi I am looking for something off the shelf to fit as opposed to cutting and welding as I have no access to or the skills to weld, I do have limited use of a friends local garage and ramp so working under the car isn't a problem as long as everything fits first time and the car isn't left imobile. I remember on a previous question someone mentioned they had a complete Phoenix system including the manifold that they had removed from I think a TR3, I wonder if you still have it?? Cheers Phil..
  12. Hi all I apologise in advance as I know this question has been covered but I have searched under various topics and can't find the absolute answer, I am replacing the rusty exhaust on my 4 and decided to go for a stainless system, I have aquired a standard refurbished 4a manifold, TR shop have a pheonix sport system for a 4a including the downpipe and 2 into 1 adapter, they are unsure this will fit on a 4 and suggest I question the greater minds on this forum. Will this system fit, will it pass through the centre cruciform section on the chassis with enough clearance, albeit in a st
  13. Thanks John will check the check the measurements and compare them with the fixing holes on my doors.. Phil...
  14. Hi John I have found Holden mirrors web site were you referring to the ital 467 mirror, it looks ok and not a bad price is there enough adjustment to make the nearside usable as that is the main problem with the bullet mirrors which won't turn in far enough? Phil..
  15. Got the same mirrors on my 4 not only have they poor vision but the chrome has failed and the drivers mirrors spring has worn and the mirror won't stay where set, I to am looking for replacements, watch this space.. Phil..
