  1. I used one of these https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-STC4104P as I was only using the wire to the oil pressure light anyway Regards Tim
  2. I had mine powder coated ... that was 15+ years ago and still looking good! I'm pretty sure they were shot blasted before coating...no sign of rust but I can see how this could happen as Roger says. Tim
  3. Robin, I've had the Hydrotechnik on my car for about 8 years now, as you say works a treat ... pressure can be checked easily and quickly. It was connecting a pressure gauge at the injector I was questioning...not sure there would be much gain over the 'checking for a pulse' method. Cheers Tim
  4. Not sure that would tell you much due the pressure pulses in the injector pipe...the gauge would probably go berserk when the engine is idling and give some average, rpm dependent, reading at higher revs.
  5. Hi Mac Sounds like an air leak to me...it doesn't take much air to get the engine reving to 3000rpm. Did you clean the inside of throttle bodies? Doing so can prevent the butterflies sealing properly... been there .. done that!! Cheers Tim
  6. So if your car has not been taxed (free or not) since 31st jan 1998 then you don't need to declare SORN.
  7. I've got my fingers crossed that its going to that simple!!! I wonder if the DVLA have informed the Post Offices of the new tax exemption rules... the old dear behind the counter at my PO will probably think its an April Fools joke. Cheers Tim
  8. Hi Michael I put one on my TR7V8 last year and I have it set to 85degC same as Mick There are a few pics of my install here: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/tlweb/tr7/repmod/mod_ewp.html I also moved the alternator to make fitting the EWPeasier: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/tlweb/tr7/repmod/mod_elec_alternator.html I used the EWP controller to operate the fan after the dual speed Kenlowe Electronic controller started palying up and then failed! Overral it works pretty well although due to the number of hose joins, mods to make the heater work and blanked off water pump getting everything water-tight took some time. I particularly like the way it prevents heat soak by running the pump, and fan if the engine is hot. Claims that it releases 12bhp (or whatever they claim) by not driving the water pump from the engine is, in my experience, dubious. One thing I find a bit alarming when the engine is warming up is seeing the temp gauge oscillate between the 1/4 and 3/4 marks. This happens because the pump is turned off and on by the controller as the engine reaches the set temperature. The cooler the weather the worst it is, maybe its designed for the Oz climate! Cheers Tim
  9. What is 'the interface'? ...I thought they came with a control box which drives the motor. Cheers Tim
  10. Some more info on headlight operation here... http://club.triumph.org.uk/cgi-bin/forum10/Blah.pl?m-1352379828/s-new/
  11. Hi Tage I has all my suspension parts (except vertical links) powder coated ... that was 7 years ago and its still in excellent condition! Cheer Tim
  12. [ Works for me ... however the Gunsons Carb Balancer - just doesn't!! Tim
  13. I've been looking at those myself and Andy has sent me some hi-rec pictures - they look very well made. Did you have any problems fitting it? Cheers Tim
  14. Hi Knortech Is this one of Mr Wiltshire's fuel tanks? Cheers Tim
  15. If its the same as mine and the wires are red/black and white/black, then red/black goes to 12V and white/black goes to coil -ve. Cheers Tim
