  1. Yes, this came up a year or so ago and the TR6 registrar Derek Graham supplied the Triumph document detailing the black paint spec which was used in production, it was: ICI Matt Black air drying paint ref 062/4523 with thinners 851/222. The matt black windscreen surround came in sometime between March & May 1969. Bob
  2. What rating diode did you use ? Thanks
  3. 4 yr warranty, correct 'Wet' type (non-calcium) with terminal layout for a TR. https://www.tayna.co.uk/car-batteries/bulletbatt/096r/ Bob
  4. Trying to make contact with the current owner - can you help? Many Thanks
  5. Bruce, E5 petrol will continue to be offered in Super octane form and since were talking about TR5 & TR6's I doubt owners would want to use the lower octane E10 petrol anyway. Bob
  6. Stuart, I'm just asking if the steel hinge fits the early door? Thanks Bob
  7. Hi Colin, its common after cleaning the deposits out from around the butterflies on the pi system for this to happen. 3000 rpm does sound high though - but as you are able to get engine speed down by covering the inlets I think you need to measure the clearance on the butterflies. Bob
  8. Post TS60000.
  9. I'm considering re-pinning the original brass door hinges on the TR2 and a friend two counties away has offered to send me a brand new OS top hinge he had left overfrom a TR3A (post TS60000) rebuild. Slightly different shape and pivot arrangement but the hole patterns seems very close to the earlier cars. Can anyone advise if it would be usable ? Thanks Bob TS60000 Hinge shape.docx
  10. Not so Richard, the injectors are effectively poppet valves so stay locked shut unless correct pressure is applied.
  11. Nige, just a warning, there have been some poor TR6 cables supplied, a friend fitted a new one and within a month when pressing the acc pedal, the fitting pulled straight thro the bulkhead. Not good especially when overtaking etc. One of the more careful suppliers has even stopped supplying the new ones now since he's not prepared to be associated with them. See how good a fit your new one is, possibly the old fitting may be best, if you can re-use it. I've attached a pic of my method prevent this happennng, not pretty but reliable. Bob
  12. Re: overdrive plate, you have found it. My A type overdrive plate attached, this one is without the 22% or 28% prefix number, they don't all have it, depends on the year and original vehicle I believe. Bob
  13. Hi ? in your very last photo showing the solenoid wire, look at the top edge of the oval boss in the gearbox casing. Is a TS number stamped into the casting radius? It looks like numbers are there but can't quite make them out Bob
  14. Undervaluing the vehicle value seems to be a common method to generate interest by auction companies. Seen this practice used quite a few times.
  15. Ha Ha- stirrup pump for me, keeps the biceps in use. Or the VAG one can be bought here wiith the sealant. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AirMan-ResQ-Compressor-and-Tyre-Repair-Sealant-Kit-OEM-Suppliers/251302402729?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20201210111314%26meid%3Dd700a796cdd24521ac806588eb46d985%26pid%3D101195%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf%26sd%3D294002631606%26itm%3D251302402729%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithDarwoV3BBEV2b&_trksid=p2047675.c101195.m1851
