  1. I am considering changing to the TR6 14w 2 speed wiper motor on my TR4 as my next project . Two questions firstly is it better to source a second hand OE motor and have it reconditioned if so any recommendations on who could do this, or buy a repro motor from one of the usual suppliers, secondly I would like to preserve the appearance of the original switches if possible, is it possible to use and adapt the TR6 switch. Cheers Chris

  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. +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.
  19. Thanks Alan That's a great help, much appreciated. Cheers Chris.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Just fitted one of these to my TR4 no problems experienced. Cheers Chris.
  23. Hi Lee Do not think about it at that price most likely made in a mud hut in Bongo Bongo Land Cheers Chris
  24. Did you buy or make the fixing bolts? if you made them details or drawing would be useful. Cheers Chris
