  1. I should say the 5 and wait for the shrieks of horror, especially as it’s Ford tractor blue ! But wouldn’t be that cruel, "...........I’m ‘refreshing’ a compressor project I picked up, and rather than just get the thing running decided it needed a bit more love than that.
  2. Am i correct in believing that I need to wait 7 days for bonda rust to 'cure' before spraying with a synthetic enamel, I think thats what its saying on the tin but anybody confirm for me please.
  3. I thought the emblem might be related to the submarine service, but they tend to have 2 dolphins, however Google is your best friend and it might be that the emblem has something to do with the Latin phrase Festina lente which basically means make haste slowly.
  4. Rich any use ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/184316351666?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=184316351666&targetid=879842586457&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9045303&poi=&campaignid=9445986154&mkgroupid=95782681917&rlsatarget=aud-381667280803:pla-879842586457&abcId=578896&merchantid=6995734&gclid=Cj0KCQjw4f35BRDBARIsAPePBHyUYe1_uTbZDTfcpkveeceEJA35vTm3n5phIlQb3WXjAM7ePDrm8PgaAhs5EALw_wcB
  5. Damson TR6 16:00Hrs Whitchurch Hight St a forumite by any chance ?
  6. Perhaps an obvious question but why do you say the engine is seizing, I’m guessing because you push the starter and it doesn’t turn over , but is it the starter failing to turn the engine , for a reason other then the engine has seized? ATB Graham
  7. Ian yes I’ve been looking like my original post said I took the list from the LRO site did find this however, wrong pulley obviously but looks like no oil vacuum pump alternators are out their https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hyundai-Getz-Accent-Matrix-1-5-CRDi-Alternator-Vacuum-Pump-2001-2005-Models/323948552302?hash=item4b6cd6a06e:g:PxAAAOSwFFVdpbfB
  8. Ian have a read of this also CBS sell an electric vacuum pump, another option I had considered was fitting a vacuum tank behind the splash panel in the OS wheel arch
  9. Well not quite, but spraying in damp conditions, was going to put the bonnet in its final coat of bonda rust today but the atmosphere is very humid and was just pondering if I should spray today as was concerned I might trap moisture under the paint so can anybody advise if its ok to spare in these damp humid conditions EDIT Answered my own question, recommended relative humidity 40-50% Aylesbury today 94-98% so looks like we won't be doing any spraying today ATB Graham
  10. I found this one a good fit http://www.racetorations.co.uk/triumph-c56/tr4a-c8/tr4a-interior-and-trim-c42/racetorations-tr4a-6-fibreglass-split-gearbox-tunnel-includes-extra-inspection-panels-p1023 just need marbles/ballbearings to mark/centre the fixing holes properly. But knowing what I know now would have kept my old FG one and modified it to fit as suggested above, after all once the carpets are in nobody sees it ! ATB Graham
  11. Ah just been back out to the garage for a re count, so I have the 5 (not 4) across the back, then forward of this on each side I have a broken stud and then on top of the b post I have 2 vacant holes, so should I bother getting the broken studs out ?
  12. Something in the back my mind is telling me that TR5's only have the 4 rearmost fixing studs on the hardtop backlight, the front 2 are only for 4/4a anybody tell me if this is correct, the back window i have has both the front studs snapped off and don't want to struggle to get them out only to find I don't need them anyway
  13. Phil personally I wouldn't drive it until you get to the bottom of the cause, my 6 had an annoying squeak from the rear audible at low speeds, when I took it to Enginuity for them to have a look at, the cause was as per Mick's photo, my hub had cracked 3/4 of the way round the flange, so the wheel was about to part company with the car. When I had the car rebuilt I went for these http://www.vessey-classic-car-services.co.uk/quaife-products.htm#.XzEOLC2ZMwc not cheap and they do come with their own issues but at least I know that all the wheels should stay on the car.
