  1. See what you mean Stuart - very strange, they clearly don't know what they're talking about, and only a recent member of ebay with no feedback....
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1965-Triumph-TR4A-Dashboard-Facia/401729317248?hash=item5d88eee980:g:uA0AAOSwccdcimeH
  3. Morning Nigel - welcome to the forum...and a fine choice of vehicle. I'm just in the process of swapping lever arm dampers on one of mine so in a position to measure for you. They are 3/8" UNF - 1" long high tensile socket heads which take a 5/16" allen key socket. The only thing I'd add is that the nuts on the back of mine are welded to the tower which makes things very easy to remove & replace the dampers, you may need to add another 1/4" to the length to allow for a spring washer below the nut on yours... hope that makes sense. It's a very simple change to make but well worth it...they do have a reputation for coming lose in the mounting and causing the clunk you've probably experienced because the original bolt set-up was so difficult to access & tighten properly.
  4. Always worth trying Rogers suggestion re the plunger & spring but from the description of 2nd & 3rd under load I fear it may not resolve your problem....
  5. Crikey, well done David, it's nice to hear a positive side to what is often considered a bureaucratic nightmare....good luck with getting her completed..
  6. Tim, I've had exactly the same problem previously ...with a reputable dealer - arm put on wrongly....it happens & it's not you.
  7. Exactly what kind of TR are you considering?..... ...........although given what I've done so far an AWD may be a worthy consideration......!
  8. Ummm - like your thinking Hamish....for some reason it brought to mind that old advert for Tonka toys....?
  9. Friday 4:30 - you know where........but you might have some stiff opposition..

    Pistons

    The 205498 relates to the original number given to a standard 86mm piston, can't help you with the others...
  11. I'm still up at Stoneleigh, but if no-one has replied by the time I get back tomorrow I'll send you details of what I use, but a Dremel is a bit too lightweight to do any serious metal sculpting of the ports.
  12. Back again straight away under a different sellers details... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1964-TRIUMPH-TR4-RED/292944439032?hash=item4434d966f8:g:j3EAAOSwgotcVcOh:rk:26:pf:0
  13. Ebay are starting to take them down a lot quicker - already gone
