    Wire Wheels TR2

    Hi All, I have a set of 60 spoke painted wire wheels I bought from TR Shop 10 years ago. Due to my poor maintenance 2 of them are showing signs of corrosion and rust...The dilemma!... should I bite the bullet and buy a new set (or just 2 new ones) or does anyone know a local repairer in the Northampton area who would shot blast etch and re-stove? I really cannot make up my mind which is the best decision.. any thoughts? Roger

    Weight of a bare chassis?

    Hi Rod, I took my TR2 chassis on a standard Halford roof rack on the top of mt Audi A6 from Northampton to CT in Southampton no problems. It did take two of us to load it. Regards Roger

    TR2 Overdrive

    Help! My recently professionally fitted overdrive has suddenly stopped working, I guess that the solenoid wire has come adrift and if I can fix it myself it will save a long journey to the garage that fitted it( highly respectable ,no complaints)Where will this wire connection be ,can I get at it fom under the car or do I need to remove the transmission tunnel...sorry for being lazy but this could save hours!! Regards Roger

    TR2 overheating

    HI Rod, I had a similar problem and I simply used a bit of plastic ducting, the sort that is spiral wound wire with plasic covering. It is about 6" diameter. It is fitted from just behind the grill and round to the front of the engine using cable ties. Sounds crude but it works for me plus of course ,electric fan, flushed block and stainless steel heat shield between exhaust manifold and carbs. Hope this helps Roger

    TR2 overheating

    Hi Rod, I had a similar problem with my TR2 even after I had the block cleaned out. I solved it in 3 ways: 1) A Kenlow fan 2)I made up a stainless steel heat shield between the exhaust manifold and the carbs, this stopped the problem of fuel vaporisation on restarting when the engine was hot. 3)I ran a piece of flexible ducting from just behind the radiator to play cold air on the engine.This is simply fixed with cable ties. I now have no problems. I hope this helps Roger
