  1. Hi Iain, I had my EFI map refined some time ago, by a company called Norris Motorsport, next door to Peter Burgess actually. Karl Norris advised to put NGK BKR 7EIX in mine. This is what I now use, and I have the same set-up as you. I have done at least 15k miles on these plugs in the last two years, with no issues whatsoever. They are not expensive either. Cheers.
  2. Hi Chris, Is your 6 an original UK car, or originally a USA motor ? The front bumper looks USA spec to me. Not sure if it is possible, when converted from LHD to RHD (if this is the case), that someone has rotated the column 360 degrees, so indicators and o/d are on the opposite side to a UK car, in the event this is feasible ? That said, your o/d stalk appears to be in the correct location, looking at your previous post. Cheers.
  3. Hi Tim, I used Jenvey throttle bodies actually. 185 BHP at the flywheel, with pops, crackles and flames enabled at Emerald. My engine was built back in 2011, and covered over 70k miles. The cam chosen at time of build was geared around Lucas PI, so couldn't go too hot. - (Newman hybrid cam) Planning an engine re-fresh this winter, with a Newman PH5 cam, which I am hoping should be quite entertaining. Cheers.
  4. Hi Lee, Give Ben a call:- http://www.revivalfabrications.com/ He does a lot of TR stuff, of high quality. Cheers.
  5. Hi Kistinie, The ECU controls all activity inside the coil pack. The distributor is removed entirely, and a blanking plate fitted, and is shimmed accordingly. I have a lambda probe that just comes off the extractor manifold, before joining to my 2.5" exhaust system (TR6). I then have an AFR gauge in the cabin, attached via a bracket on the H-frame. A small hole was made in the gearbox tunnel to feed it through. Cheers.
  6. Hi Tim, If you do not have a knock sensor, the ECU will not retard the timing in the event of detonation. I have the Emerald kit on my 6, and it does not have a knock sensor. You can however, install a 3-way map switch, for around £15, whereby Emerald can have three different maps set up. For example, full power, poor fuel and economy. Poor fuel, causing detonation, can be switched to allow the timing to be retarded in this event, to eradicate. Cheers.
  7. Hi Ian, OK, noted. On my EFI set-up, we had a bespoke catch tank designed, to fit in the bulk-head area next to the clutch master cylinder, that 'picks up' the pedal box area, and has a tab coming off the catch tank that locates on the clutch master cyl bracket, and a tiny tab that uses one self tapping screw, where a small hole is required in the o/s inner wing. We sited the tank here, as it is the most obvious place from the routing of the original set-up off the rocker cover outlet. Black silicon hose comes off the screw cap feed, with two p-clips that attach to two wing outer wing bolts, and runs over the o/s wheel arch seam, and enters the o/s chassis leg, which acts as a self-lubricating chassis arrangement. You can drain the catch tank with a bolt than can be removed to periodically drain the residue. No issues with bonnet clearance either, etc. Cheers.
  8. Hi Harry, Must go well with that power ? What was done with regards to the breather system that usually exits the rocker cover ? Cheers.
  9. Well done Bailey. Great stuff, Dave. Cheers.
  10. Hi Steve, I have no experience with Megasquirt, but do have an EFI TR6, but with Emerald kit fitted. Done around 10,000 miles so far, and very reliable, with no issue. There maybe other people on here that will comment on Megasquirt. Cheers.
  11. Hi Tim, Did you also have an auxiliary air valve fitted, to assist in cold starting, without the use of throttle ? Cheers.
  12. I did operate contact breaker points for many years (on a TR6), and with a decent/unworn distributor, and good quality points, they are no hassle at all. I have driven my cars thousands of miles around the UK, abroad, track days and sprints. I then changed to a 123 tune, and that was a great piece of kit. Fine tuned with a lap top on the RR. I never carried the original dizzy, just had the 123 tune installed, and ran like this for thousands of miles, without a single issue. I am now distributorless. but that is another story, and have a coil pack installed. Horses for courses, etc. Cheers.
  13. Hi Ian, I am after a set from 1989 of TR Actions. Any ideas where I could obtain a set from ? I often look on eBay, but 1989 appears not to be a good year ! Many thanks in advance.
  14. A Type for me, too. Oh, an competition spec !
  15. You need a decent exhaust manifold gasket, as a lot on the market, certainly for the TR5/6, are not great quality at all. If you get one not to 'blow', it is a matter of time before they start to break down on the mating surfaces. Bastuck in Germany will sell you a high quality steel gasket, which are very robust. Part number MD9TR6. Cheers.
  16. Hi Stan, Do you know which Ford hubs are used ? I have this kit on my 6. Cheers.
  17. I agree with Marko, the Red 5 was much better value than that Blue 5. The Blue 5 needed a complete rebuild, and made good money at circa £26K + fees in my option. The Yellow low mileage 6 was not that nice at all either. Over-spray on several components, plus several other defects. Cheers.
  18. Hi Harry, It was a shame that White 6 with EFI did not make the concourse arena at the weekend. I was looking forward to hearing what mods the engine had received. Cheers.
  19. Hi Ian. I have Jenveys and Emerald Management (K6 ECU) in my TR6, on a +0.40 bore, PB head, 10:1 CR, plus many other mods. I run a Newman cam, which is not listed on their web site. You could get away with a different cam with that management system, and a cam that offers more valve lift, providing you have a good exhaust system including manifold, you should find the results quite entertaining. It should also be totally tractable. Cheers.
  20. I agree with Bruce above, this most definitely sounds like what is known as a ratchet clutch. You will find it is worse when warm as everything expands. The nose piece that the release bearings slides up and down will be slightly out of shape, hence when you release the clutch pedal it does not release smoothly. Been here before. Good luck.
  21. Hi Neil, Many thanks for the update. Cheers.
  22. I understand Malcom has now retired, I believe ?
