  1. 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..
  2. Thanks Rod all sorted, now in the wanted section.. Phil..
  3. 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..
  4. 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..
  5. 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..
  6. 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 straight line unlike the original and then kick over to avoid the diff', they have checked out the differences on their systems in stock hoping I could order one for a 4 without the expensive manifold and cut down the length of the 1st pipe to account for the angle of the 4a manifold but the diameter is different? Cheers Phil.
  7. Thanks John will check the check the measurements and compare them with the fixing holes on my doors.. Phil...
  8. 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..
  9. 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..
  10. Hi Bought my 62 TR4 in 2007 it had been rebuilt 10yrs previous and although serviced and mot every year it had done little mileage being bought as an investment, we checked everything over and 4 months later took it to 24hr Le Mans, the seals in the servo failed and lost all the brakes on the Maulsane straight, (not racing). We got it home by by-passing the servo, at home we went through all the seals on brake and clutch systems, I would advise you to do the same.. Cheers Phil..
  11. Hi Rich I found a replacement for mine when the seals failed on a Morris Minor web site it was advertised as genuine not a copy.. Phil.

    My ameter never used to move much towards the + I had the dynamo rebuilt because of a noisy bearing and when I refitted it my mech' brother set up the regulator properly by using a piece of paper between 2 of the connections and adjusting the others, something he learnt back in the 60's when it was part of servicing these sort of cars, it now reads high in the positive when started up and quickly settles when the regulator adjusts it, you can see the needle moving as things are turned on and when the engine speed increases,there must be something on you tube about setting it up.. Phil..
  13. HI All My 4 has bullet style mirrors which look good but are actually quite useless the nearside mirror will not adjust in far enough to be of any use,(all I can see is the hedges going by) both are now going rusty and pitted and the drivers side mirror will not stay where set the mirror end is loose and moves around, I have been looking on various sites trying to find a suitable replacements which will use the original holes approx 2" apart, not all the web sites give the fitting details and I don't want to order by post if they are not going to be suitable. Any ideas? has anyone had this problem ?? phil.
  14. I had problems with the rear shockers coming loose on my 4 so added spring washers, have had no further problems since.. Phil..
  15. When on holiday or parking it away from sight for a while I put a heavy motor cycle chain and lock through the wire wheel and the front suspension which acts as a visual deterent at least, you just got to remember to take it off.. Phil..
