  1. Wire coat hanger in case one of the exhaust brackets fails Cheers Chris
  2. Thanks Stuart I believe Everflex is still available I may search for a company who will make me one in that material possibly using my existing one as a pattern. Cheers Chris.
  3. Hi Stuart My original surrey top is 57 years old and now leaking along the seams and appears to be made from leatherett and lined in a cream fabric is the one you show constructed the same or is it just unlined black vinyl. Cheers Chris.
  4. Hi Rich I spoke to them last week they said they were having their 2 week summer shut down and will be back first week in September, I am thinking of ordering one myself will be interested to know what the quality and fit are like. Cheers Chris
  5. It could be that the brass jet bearing in the carburetter body is not central try dropping the the jet with the choke lever if that cures the problem then the bearing is out of alignment Cheers Chris
  6. Gentlemen I need after 20 years to replace the 2 Falcon stainless steel silencers on my TR4 as they are now very noisy and resonating badly. Due to quality issues Moss no longer supply Falcon products but offer Bell systems. As I do not want to go to the expense of a new manifold and link pipe I asked Moss if the Bell silencers would be compatible with the rest of my system the answer was they thought they were but not 100% sure. Has anyone had any experience of this ?, the outside diameter of the inlet pipe into the existing Falcon silencer from the link pipe coming from the manifold is
  7. +1 for Pete Cox. He had my TR4 Flywheel lightened to approx 19 lbs and drilled for a diapragm clutch just the right amount for road use make, sure you have the flywheel and clutch assy balanced together, I previously had a steel flywheel weighing 10 lbs not in my opinion suitable for road use, great pickup but the drop off to dramatic. Cheers Chris.
  8. Thanks Alan That's a great help, much appreciated. Cheers Chris.
  9. Gentlemen I need to replace the stainless steel silencers on my TR4 to ensure compatibility with the extractor manifold and connector pipe I need to identify the manufacturer. I originally purchased the whole system in 1995 from Triumph Tune in London . I thought it was a Phoenix system but when I quoted the part numbers from the old invoice to the TR Shop they said they are not Phoenix numbers. The numbers are as follows , if anyone can identify the manufacturer I would be grateful . FSTH 28 Rear Silencer FSTH 21 Front Silencer FS 1130 Extractor Manifold FS5027 Link
  10. Hi Jim Also check the length and diameter of the brass plunger at the bottom of the assembly this can vary the quickness of the initial piston lift. Cheers Chris
  11. Just fitted one of these to my TR4 no problems experienced. Cheers Chris.
  12. Hi Lee Do not think about it at that price most likely made in a mud hut in Bongo Bongo Land Cheers Chris
  13. Did you buy or make the fixing bolts? if you made them details or drawing would be useful. Cheers Chris
  14. Thanks Roger Will look forward to it. Cheers Chris
