  1. Thanks Roger, They have the knurled nuts but not the brackets (or straps as they are listed) Cheers, Dave.
  2. Thanks Mike, I have tried Craig but he doesn't have any of these. I'll try Speedy Cables on Monday. Thanks Blue TR3A. Dave
  3. Hi Folks, I am rebuilding a TR250 and many parts from this car have been missing. One thing I am struggling to find, if anyone can help, is the two brackets that hold the Speedo and Rev counter into the dashboard, plus the knurled nuts that go on the long threads at the back of the instrument. I need brackets and nuts for both instruments. If anyone can help or point me in the right direction I would be mighty pleased to hear it. Thank you. Dave.
  4. We must be on the same wavelength again Pete. As well as painting our cars the same colour I was just thinking about this mod a couple of days ago. I actually have a kit that I bought some years ago that I'm going to fit, but I'll see can it go on the inside like yours. Cheers. Dave.
  5. Hi Everyone, Sometime ago... a long time ago, someone helped me out with a webpage that gave technical specifications for different tyre sizes to maintain the rolling radius, to keep your speedo more or less accurate if using different size wheels. I've inherited some 16 inch wheels for a TR5 and I would like to find out what size tyres to put on them. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks. Dave.
  6. Dear Ed, The car had the conversion on when I bought it, but going back to the original is high on the agenda as I have never liked the feel of this particlar conversion. I have no idea if they are all the same, but this feels shocking. (No pun intended). Thank you for your comment. Dave.
  7. Does anyone have any ideas where to obtain telescopic shockers for the rear conversion from Armstrongs on a TR5? My old shocks were Gaz, but one is worn out and the other leaking. I put a pair of Spax on yesterday. They came off again today as they were appalling. I thought they were going to fracture the trailing arms they were that fierce, even on softest setting. I took my mate out in the car to get his opinion and after 200 yards, he said 'Turn round'. I'm looking for something along the lines of a standard shocker, but finding any with treaded top and bottom seem to be diff
  8. I looked at all manner of ramps for a long time before buying the MR1 and I have been very happy with them. Heavy, yes. Easy to use, totally. No messing about with hydraulic pipes and wondering if the ramp is going to fall down on you. No working your way around hydraulic pipes and ramp mechanisms. Dave.
  9. Thanks Roger, I just ordered one from them. I'll have a look at their website. Cheers. Dave.
  10. Thanks Guys, very helpful and much appreciated. I shall get one ordered right now. Dave.
  11. Oh, that was a disappointment, I was looking for a nice female companion to join me on my Triumph adventures. hahaha. Cheers, Dave.
  12. Hi Guys, I was reading recently in the forum about the American replacement Heater Control Valve that screws into the head. Stuart and Roger had posted on this subject and Roger, I think it was, listed a link to a USA company. I can't find the post now. HOWEVER!!! I tried to order one from that company and they said they didn't ship internationally. I can't now recall what the valve was called and does anyone know where we can get these from. Thank you all. Cheers. Dave.
  13. Three hands will definitely help you. Cheers, Dave.
  14. As a typesetter of many years standing earlier in life, I have an eagle eye for spotting the tiniest irritation in a copy of anything with type and I have to say that Paul's reproductions are absolutely mint. When people reproduce text they often don't understand the relationship of inter-character spacing and how it has changed over the years and therein lies the easily spotted errors in reproductions. Congratulations Paul. That really is a superb job. Cheers, Dave.
