  1. Pete, What a great report of your day and the experience of driving a TR4/4A for the first time in 25 years; and what a great advertisement for the TRR and, in particular, the Essex Group. Thanks so much for such an in depth description of the experience!! (For what it's worth, having owned both 4 and 4A I'm a fan of the earlier car. But it's definitely a matter of taste only, as I think both are great cars to drive.) Cheers, Tim
  2. I don't think they are, which is why these are available for badges...
  3. I can't help with brands in the UK, but I highly recommend them. Mine have flexible/angle-able heads and there are some jobs that are HUGELY easier with them. I have 7/16, 1/2 and 9/16.
  4. Jan and I had a great couple of days driving all over the Yorkshire Dales a couple of years ago; sadly not in a TR. I've wanted to see the Ribblehead Viaduct for years and it didn't disappoint - and then we also found the Dent Head viaduct quite by chance - mostly because I'd never heard of it! We carried on up the tiny lanes along the river Dee and stopped for a pint in the very quirky village of Dent before heading on to the Lake District. Even without a decent classic, we loved every minute of it. Cheers, Tim
  5. Hi John, I have just tried to place an ad and upload a photo (mine was 3.1MB) and all went fine. Do you have any other ads running? I don't know the classifieds section very well, but perhaps there is a limit on the total...? Lastly, what browser are you using? FYI, I'm using Google Chrome for my successful upload. Let me know and, if needed, I can give you a call. Tim
  6. Hi John, It might be due to size, but it would be helpful to know a bit more detail - was there an error message shown? Thanks, Tim
  7. Which, I think, is what Charlie is suggesting - but based on cold oil not circulating fast enough.
  8. I'm really intrigued by this idea. There are clearly a lot of us who have the exact same sound on cold start-up, so it's obviously a TR engine "thing". Would be great to nail down the cause. I'm going to run a test on this tomorrow morning and see what the dip stick says...
  9. Shows that I cant remember my 4a (but then that was over 25 years ago). I thought they had a column switch that selected side, dip or main. T
  10. No, TR4 doesnt have one. Also the dip/main selector is a footswitch.
  11. Hi John, I have a similar set-up to others, above - a "momentary on/off" switch on the dash pointing at my left hand (LHD car, obviously). However, if I remember correctly (and I may not) the Vitesse, and probably the GT6, has a column switch which is both a dip/main switch (up/down) and a headlamp flash (pull). Assuming I'm right (don't hold your breath) and that they are available, you should be able to fairly easily make this an OD on/off switch (up/down) as well as flash (pull). Hope that is helpful! Tim
  12. Fab video - thanks for posting, Deggers!
  13. Thanks both (and apologies for the thread drift). I don't remember my car having no synchro on first so maybe it had a 2L 'box. Or maybe it's just so long ago that I don't remember properly... I do know that I had to rebuild it after every second rally...!
  14. I used to have a Vitesse 6. I dont remember the gearbox being different from the 2L. Was it just ratios?
