  6. A friend of mine, next door neighbor, is restoring a Lancia Lambda and has discovered that Tr 83mm pistons with a little machining may fit. Before he buys a new set he is after an old useable set to machine first to make sure they will work. The top of the piston is at a slight angle. If anybody has a used set that the6 no longer require please le5 me know. Many thanks for any help.
  7. Thanks for all your suggestions. With the PTFE spray does it dry so that dust does not stick and where do I buy PTFE spray and MWS cleaner. I will give anything a try.
  8. any tips on how to polish and keep polished chrome wire wheels after a through cleaning. could you use a spray polish used on furniture.
  9. I had my TR2 set up on a rolling road last year and now without touching the carbs SU I am running very rich. About 20mpg. What may of happened or do I need to adjust the mixture, if so is the adjusting nut up or down to weaken the mixture.
  10. Thanks to all replies. Yes ther is oil but sometime the simple thing can be the problem. Rogers answer is what I fear may be wrong so back to what does not grow on a rolling stone and hope they will put it right. regards to all
  11. I have fitted a girling back axle to my TR2 and it was rebuilt by a well known supplier in Twickenham. After 2500 miles it is making a whining noise that is getting louder. Any suggestions, is it bearings or does it need to be re-shimed? Also remomendations for a good builder of diff's I have paid good money and do not want to pay again and still not get a good axle.
  12. Andy Thanks for reply. Pictures would be most appreciated when finished. As with all things TR I am getting a lot of help now that I have asked, so hope to be able to get enough info to fit. regards Ian
  13. Hello Andy You have the same problem as I have. I am just finishing a complete restoration of a TR2. I have aquired a hard top and now want to fit it. The car was not built with the fittings for a hard top and I now need to find somebody with the experiance of fitting hard tops so as to get it correct and then tweek the side screens to fit.I live inNorth Buckinghamshire if you do not live too many miles away could I come and see how the hard top should fit. The information I need is to see where it should sit on the car and the clearances between the cappings at the side. Regards Ian
  14. I am changing my TR from dynamo to alternator and I need resuring as to what I have to do.

Regards to all and thanks to those that answer.
