  1. As a standard TR6 engine makes 150bhp another 50bhp from modifications hardly seems a wild claim. With a steel bottom end, the higher rev limit will only raise this figure.

    Dove purchase

    Strange things have happened Wayne, as I, like yourself, have a TR7V8 with bodywork as extreme as a Grinnall and also a Dove. I'd of never put money on it. Now to make the drag car road legal....
  3. Well with Eve getting bigger by the day, a four seater Triumph was needed. To my surprise my wife Louise spotted a Dove for sale at a reasonable price. Deal done. it's a shame I have sold off my dad's huge collection of spares. I think I'll find myself buying some back at rather different prices! Cheers, Tom Pringle
  4. Where did you source these?
  5. Can anyone help with the marking on the end of this TR4A camshaft? Assuming it's modified... BHMRY2
  6. Thanks Roger, appreciated. The order of service was my wife's (Louise) work. Most other parts were mum's choice, the wicker coffin, the songs and even the vicar. Although her readings were based on my choices she adapted them for Diane perfectly. It was a sad day, but it went well. Thanks to everyone else, your comments mean a lot. We do have a donations page for her funeral to her chosen charities. That some have asked about so link added below. https://dianepringle.muchloved.com/
  7. Thanks Paul, I'd like to add this convoy behind the hearse is in initial stages of planning and I've put it out there before its been fully authorized, the council have accepted the idea in principal, but We need to keep the numbers under 30, this is people rather than cars. so 15-30 cars, obviously depending on number in the cars. We can have use of toilet facilities at the cricket club. We will need mobile numbers to confirm any track and trace covid aspects in regards to the use of these. I appreciate Mere isn't near anywhere, stuck in the wilds of Wiltshire. But there is pl
  8. Mum, Diane, passed away 16.48 thanks to everyone for your messages, it means a lot. I found appropriate attire Tom
  9. Hi all, I've resisted posting about mums prognosis on the forum, she was slightly more private than the old man regarding her condition. But unfortunatly its also her final lap. I can't say enough how much these words mean to me, and my mum. My parents always helped others when help was needed. These words definitly help now. They always went above and beyond, even over their own needs. While looking after Dad, Mum's own prognosis got worse, we thought the mastectomy would cut it. But unfortunatly not. She enjoyed a brief few months of touring europe. Le mans classic, Spa and Z
  10. Think there are several grey dashboards that haven't seen the light of day for many a year in the Pringle garage.... Tom Pringle
  11. Just been attacking mum's original TR4a dash board, thoroughly ruined cracked lacquer, water damaged in places. If you have time on your side, sometimes it's possible to revive even the most worn of dashboards. Heat gun and an exceptionally sharp chisel made short work of the lacquer. Oxylic acid removed the odd water marks. Light sand prepped it for varnish. Be careful here, the veneer is very thin. If your Essex way regency veneers in Southend do excellent work on our yacht stuff at work, and I'm sure a dash would be no problem to re-veneer. I only have a base coat applied in
  12. Just the last photo of us I could find on Louise's (the wife's) phone. I'll start with an easy one I heard the MG is lapping faster than the Triumph.
  13. Thanks for everyone's comments, to make light of the situation, this is a photo of the old man, taken at Spa sept 2017. His hair growing dispite mass chemo. He insisted on going again, there was friends he had to see! I most remember him on this trip recounting Chevron testing at 170mph, in the 70's(60's?), while avoiding children running across the track from a farmhouse. Thankfully the circuit isn't quite that dangerous now-a-days, though much shorter. He's still achieved so much for people since then, but this was our last trip away together. RIP Dad Oh back to making light
