  1. We used to ship aircraft piston engines ( P&W radials) after re manufacturing with desiccant packed spark plugs fitted. Plus all orifices were blanked. https://www.ebay.com/itm/171072239829
  2. The Stag box in my TR3A bashed and rubbed the tunnel and it needed dressing back with a big ball pein hammer plus rounding the bell housing starter bulge with a curve cut file.
  3. My concern in using the steel tunnel is that in a TR3 if you fit a later 4 synchro gearbox, as found In TR4A, finds the starter motor bulge in the bell housing touching the inside face of the steel tunnel. Modification involves either cutting a lump off the bell housing or reshaping the steel tunnel to clear the bell housing. Cheers Peter W
  4. Should the voltage stabiliser be earthed to make it work? If the gauges are just hung in then perhaps no earth exists
  5. Seats now spoken for. To go in……an Euros. Cheers Peter W
  6. Seats now spoken for. To go in……an Eunos. Cheers Peter W
  7. Both I took the legless midget shelf out and still too little rearward movement for my long legs. Suggestion has been to take a lump hammer to the arches…….
  8. I have search Civil Aircraft Inspection Procedures Part 1 in sect BL/2-3 onwards ( Roger will have his own set too no doubt) and only found a written comparison of screws and bolts which is quite woolly and refers only to a particular series of screws. see image. As stated above screws are for lightly stressed things bolts do a job of not only clamping but are resilient in sheer and or tension. This will vary with material the fastener is made from and it’s head design.
  9. I have a pair of MX5 seats with detachable head rests and runners for sale So does any one want a pair of dark/black fabric covered seats with detachable head rests and seat runners.? Detachable headrests means you can get the tonneau on without having pockets sewn into it. Same style as those photographed in this thread. They are in excellent order with no foam damage that so often happens to the seat corners. These could go straight in a dark colour trim car as the covers are not tatty. The seats can be collected from Pinner with the runners and head rests for the p

  11. I have now tried a pair of MX5 seats with detachable head tests in my car and can not get them far enough back for my long legs. Drat! As they are so comfy. The same style as the cream ones pictured in this thread. So does any one want a pair of dark/black fabric covered seats with detachable head rests and seat runners.?

  12. You would want a clear lens I suspect not the NAS orange one. Then you can use a dual/swapping coloured side lamp/indicator LED bulb. White on side lamp but extinguishes when indicating and flashes orange. This modification is becoming more common on sidescreen cars that have originally white front indicators in a lamp that is also the white front parking light. Roger fitted tiny clear LED lamps into the red bit of his tail lamps of his TR4 to provide reversing lamps. Lots of options …..
  13. TR6 Parts book part numbers 1969 to 1973 is 517785 or 517785A The 517785 is a spiral ring bound book with hard covers and is really only useful for 1969/70 models. 517785A is a soft back book that is far more complete. It has been reproduced by Brooklands Books Later is RTC9093 This is a graphic parts book that list and fails to list items that might or might not be in the earlier books. Useful for images of the later CR/CF unique items. Microfiche also exist if you have a reader. I'll get my anorak
  14. This has been covered before. Just be sure that the speed rating of the tyre you choose is sufficient for the car manufacturer’s stated top speed. PI cars were specified with HR rated tyres from new I believe. That I think is up to 135 mph. Carb spec had a lower top speed.so lower speed rating on the tyre. Just do not give the insurance companies another exit route in the event of a claim.
