  1. Try a bit of timber down the side of the tyre to lever it sideways. Mick
  2. Chock the front wheels, take the hand brake off, then jack up one rear wheel, put it in 4th and turn this wheel. Should get it moving. Mick
  3. Posing at the top of Glencoe during the TR Tours to Scotland in September 2019.
  4. Well done to the TRDC and the TRSDF. Mick
  5. Hi Jerry, The man you need to contact is Derek Graham, our TR6 Registrar. He has a staggering amount of information about cars and their owners over the decades. His email address is: saffrontr6@outlook.com Hope he can help you. Mick
  6. This is Mike's email address: tr2-3registrar@tr-register.co.uk Mick
  7. I realised that my '6 was pulling hard to the left on moderate to hard braking but could see nothing wrong at the front end. Then a few weeks later I could not get the handbrake to hold on a hill. Took off the rear drums and yes, a leaking brake cylinder had soaked the shoes. New cylinders and shoes both sides and now she brakes straight and the handbrake holds on a good hill. It was clearly a very slow degradation that I had not noticed until it was really bad. Mick
  8. Good to see the theory spelt out in black and white. If only all cities across Europe were so clear. The 40 year rule is meant to be applied consistently for all ULEZ but it is hard to get such a clear statement as this. Well done Birmingham. Mick
  9. Just imagine that instead of the shot where he drove off in his 4x4 truck it was a TR, that would definitely be Out and About in a TR! Mick
  10. When I did this operation a few years back I moved the rack, not hard, and removed the cross member so I could get good access. I used a three leg puller with the centre against the previously loosened crank bolt. Tightened up the puller bolt as much as I dared, then hit the end of the puller bolt with a lump hammer, pop, the pulley came off. Hope you get it off one way or another. Mick
  11. I agree Ian. As a professional engineer, it annoyed me that people think that I can fix their washing machine. My usual response was no but I can design a better one or a factory to make them. Also end of rant. Mick
  12. Driving down and up Glencoe was stunning as was the drive up the Rest and be Thankful and on to Inveraray Castle for a tour and lunch.
  13. 12 cars have joined the tour based in Aberfoyle on the side of Loch Ard. A nice run out today over the Dukes Pass and on to Aberfeldy, returning via the Glenturret distillery for a tour and taste. Glencoe is planned for tomorrow, be even nicer if it stopped raining. Mick
  14. Bo'ness Revival and TR Register Scottish weekend was brilliant, well done Cliff McKinnon and team, lots of hard work from a great team, thank you. The hill climb event was also fun to watch as well, some really special cars. Mick
  15. I fitted a water expansion bottle from a TR6 to my TR3. Works a treat. The bottle is hidden. I topped the water up to the filler cap and half way up the bottle. I have not added any all summer, still nearly half way up the bottle. Mick
