  1. Hello All A few from our trip to Spain & Portugal. Roger and The Memsahib Ps we can not wait to go back again
  2. Hello All Not a TR but Still a Triumph! Roger & The Memsahib
  3. Hello How about this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HIRE-MG-Midget-King-Pin-Bushes-Reamer-HIRE/283330492185?hash=item41f7d03719:g:18IAAOSwc9VcMwJ6:rk:3:pf:0 just noticed its for midget so probably to small Roger
  4. Hello All I have a 28% overdrive on my Spitfire 1500 it does make it a bit tall sometimes but having 3rd + OD = 4th it is nice when at border line speeds(just the flick of a switch) Then 4th OD gives me 70 mph @ 3000rpm Its not a standard engine fast road cam, block decked, crank balanced, rods polished and shot peened and ITB fuel injection plus some head work etc Roger
  5. Hello All I rebuilt one of those engines a few months ago for a mate. My Velocettes did not like a foreign engine being in there! 1938 MSS 500 1938 KSS 350 OHC 1965 Viper 350 (now 500) Plus a 1961 Venom 500 and a 1938ish MAC 350 both not mine And all sorts of spares I thought I would need? Roger
  6. Hello All Thanks for the comments and advice it gives me something to think about before I jump in with both feet as usual! Roger

    Hello All Lamp holder looks like a bog standard Lucas one as fitted to Spitfires No 85 https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/shop-by-model/triumph/spitfire/electrical-system/lighting/interior-lamps-spitfire.html Roger
  8. Hello All 3 digits before 2000 Roger
  9. Hello All I know this is a daft question but I have to start somewhere? I am 73 years young and own Triumph 1500 Spitfire, Mk2 Vitesse , TR2 and a Morris Minor Traveller plus a few motorcycles! The Spitfire is modified and runs ITB,s and fuel injection on a modified engine The Vitesse needs a bit of work to get it road worthy not Konkers The TR2 is in pieces and I do not think I will ever get it back together. The Morris Traveller needs a bit of work as well! 2 motorcycles are road worthy and one needs work! Plus numerous spares etc So the question is I am thinking of buying a TR7 now while the prices are reasonable Having a quick look I think I could get a very good soft top for about £6000 (2 litre) We love Spitty and have done 35000 miles in the last 6 years Spain, Italy, Ireland(north and south) Classic le Mans (4) Classic Spa(3) we love touring But as we get older she is getting lower to the floor(well feels like it!) so my thoughts turned to a TR7 is Still a Triumph but modernish?(I fancy a Triumph Stag but expensive for a good one and thirsty) I have never driven one and all the reports I have read say they are not as bad as the non believers make out! (I remember the out cry when windy window TR4,s were allowed in!) We have owned TR4, Reliant Scimitar, and I have repaired and driven a few TR6,s I just thought a TR7 may suit better into my dotage Now Am I completely mad or does that seem like a good plan?(remember I have to sell it to the Memsahib!) To be honest I could sell one Motor cycle to buy one? (but its time I tried!!!!! to down size the collection) Roger ps be kind to me and break it gently that I am stark raving bonkers!
  10. Hello All If they get that hot they need a fan for cooling how does the heat get out of the headlamp shell? and would it not be worse if the shells were plastic? Roger
  11. Hello All In this mad world seems like a snip! Roger ps do you get the brownings as well? now that would be fun!
  12. Hello All I stand corrected (not the first time and sure as hell will not be the last!) Roger
  13. Hello All I thought washing up liquids have lots of salt in them and why they are not the best stuff to wash your car with? Roger
  14. Hello Roger where can you get some of this addative???? has a good number of additives and one is for swelling. Roger
