  1. Hello The later arms had a bigger Webb on the shock absorber mount not sure what year it came in Richard
  2. Hi Be aware that 035" gap may be correct measuring against the servo face, but the piston in the master cylinder can sit further in especially if not nos parts causing a bigger gap, I had a problem with long movement and trouble bleeding with new master cylinder checked against original one and piston was to far in, so adjusted nut to compensate. The 035" wood have been bigger to tighten up gap. An expantion gap should be there between servo rod and piston , Richard
  3. Hi Double checked First size bore .860" piston is .847" dia Second step down bore is .812" piston is .807" dia This is from an original 1975 master cylinder other years may be different ?? Regards Richard
  4. Hi Just checked a an orginal 1975 brake master cylinder. Not sure of the servo inner dia. Approx 6' 225" Master cylinder First bore is .860" 55/64" then steps down to .847" 13/16" Regards Richard
  5. Hi It may give you extra clearance to fit longer studs when assembled to car. Richard
  6. Hello My brother is building a mk1 group4 rally car he was told that the prop from gearbox to diff should not be completely In line as this can cause vibration but should be staggered, may be different with a fixed diff like TR Richard
  7. Hi Yes Tr6, tend to be on the US spec cars, seal can be got from Moss. Richard
  8. Hi By breathing across the probe does it measure your own co2 which should be about 3.5 to 4% , you would know if it's in the basic ballpark I've used an old patient monitor before to get a basic reading. Richard
  9. Hello I've had the same problem ended up only fitting drivers side,I think the rubber is not stiff enough if revington do a better Part may source from them. Richard

    Broken down ,

    Hello and apologies from a register member for not stopping to help, I was driving along the military road in the family car when the family shouted out tr6 and I was just happy to see one and reconised your car from the forum, had not realised you had broken down or would have stopped. Hope got home and sorted ok Apologies again Richard
  11. Tr6 Needles car park on Saturday and I think Pinky in his Tr6 on the Milatary Rd today. Richard
  12. Hello On the latest arms the ribs for the shock mounts are larger strengthening the shock mounting point. Richard
  13. Hi I think Craig Aldersons wheels are 7" rims as I was looking at his car at one of the nationals a few years ago when I was looking for new wheels which have a deeper rim dish. Richard
  14. Hi, I fitted a new steel carrier(unknown manufacture from a trade stall at stoneleigh) which had a smaller bore than the original worked fine on the bench but in use was very stiff so I Brought a bronze carrier and it was still binding on the shaft giving a hard clutch I got my brother to cylindrical grind it out to the standard steel size as the bore was smaller and it has since work fine, it appeares to me that bore to shaft clearance is quite critical to getting a smooth working clutch. Which ever carrier material is used Richard
  15. Hi I had the same issue a few years back and discoverd it was the piston but mine was too short compared to the original so gave long pedal travel and bleeding issues so I compared it to the original what the clearance should be And reset the servo push rod to suit and it worked fine. The clearance I gather is there so the piston can return fully with no interferance, so within reason As long as there is the correct clearance it will be fine, I don t think the manufacturers relise the importance of the piston lengh/depth in the TR6 aplication. Regards Richard
  16. Ps I do have the figures some where at home of how far it was running out, see if I can find them. Richard
  17. Hi I brought a damper from moss last year it was well out of balance and did not run true,my brother has a specialist cylindrical grinding business he ground the out sides true to the bore, plus had to grind high spots from the vee which would have grabbed the belt.they appear to be very roughly machined tolerance wise,no trueing up when machining different parts of the damper eg. Turning around in lath chuck. After grinding it ran true allover within a thou, it was then balanced. It got rid of a vibration that ran through the car before and is know good. I was lucky to be able to sort it at
  18. He has a youtube channel showing his find watched last night only shiws the six in the background more interested in cobra good watch. Cheers Richard
  19. Hi Not sure if they've changed the design but these pipes did'nt have flared ends or a ridge formed around the end same as on rad so when the jubilee clip is tightened there is a ridge to stop it blowing of under pressure' I soldered a ridge around mine. Richard
  20. Early AM V8s do with R & L stamped on the nuts. Richard
  21. Hello With it looking like it's a green light could it be an extra indicator light that a previous owner has install they not the most visible of lights Richard
  22. Hi I used one not long ago,i did each wheel individuely.I drove farward on flat service so as the stearing wheel was in the correct position.I used a maker to make sure the wheel stayed in the same position,I drove over the gauge and it gave me a figure for that wheel, then did the same on the other side keeping the steering wheel in the same position, I did this several times to make sure of consistancy,I then ajust each track rod to make sure that wheel ran at the correct degrees,each wheel would be half the total toe, which I found in another thread on tracking which converted from inchs t
  23. Hi I brought one from moss couple years back after having trouble with a new steel one dragging making heavy clutch. The bronze one from moss had a smaller internal dia than the original one so I had it machined out and polished (had access to facilities so didn't both returning it) now works fine Regards Richard
  24. Hello If you google fitting a tr6 spin on filter it comes up with the issues fitting these on the tr reg. Forum Cheers Richard
  25. Hi I had the same self inflicked problem a couple of years ago I had driven the car for about twenty odd miles when there was a banging sound which sounded like something banging on the exhaust, looking through the plug holes I could see bits of metal in the bores, on stripping of the head found pieces of a spring washer, had got into combustion chamber, the bits looked identical to what you have found and as Pete has mentioned it had compressed the piston ring gaps jamming the rings, lucky no bore damage but had to replace the piston, mine runs on SUs,the washer was from the filters, I had
