  1. My wife's vit d test results came in today. Interesting to her levels were double mine and we both take the same dose (4,000iu a day). I suspect the difference is down to me being almost twice as large ! Keep safe folks,
  2. I sent off a blood test to see my Vitamin D status, I've been taking 4000IU for almost a year (as has my wife) . Like Alan I was also surprised at my lower than expected results . My wife's result has not yet come through, the lab said they had experienced a high level of demand for this service. Mark
  3. Hi Harry, You may remember i had same pedal issue with the replacment calipers fitted during the rebuild on my 6. Later I replaced these with AP 4 pots and vented discs and the long pedal didn't change, but brakes are fine on track Mark

    Hi Dan, I wasn't in the car, would have weighed a great deal more if I had!

    TR6 Weight

    Hi Dan I took my CP TR6 to a weigh bridge and it came to 1108kg. Full fuel tank, spare wheel. Mark.
  6. Just to add some information from my experience; I also have a 0580 464 126, as a spare, it is listed as a Bosch replacement for my current pump, a 0 580 254 909, which has been on the car for over twenty years. On my TR6 the setup uses the Sytec glass filter which as said earlier, has an internal bore of a little over 5mm. This I.D. appears to be Identical for the 5/16 and 3/8 filter versions, the only difference I can find is the bore of the chrome ends. Both sizes have the same 4 x 3.2mm diameter holes drilled in each end to allow the fuel to pass out of the input end and
  7. I remember someone at moss telling me that some Peugeots use the same uhd. Sorry but I cannot recall which ones.
  8. How often do folks running bosch fuel pumps change the large fuel filter? The fuel filter on my car was fitted over 20 years ago and done some 26k miles since its rebuild. I thought it was about time for change. I've not yet got round to fitting the replacement (PN 0 450 905 021 if anyone is interested, cost £22, its for a bosch 909 pump ) but I will open it up to see how it looks inside. i am not expecting much debris as it has a small glass pre-filter and has had a new stainless steel fuel tank since the rebuild.

    Make sure the replacement rad is not a 3 row unit, this happened to me many years ago. I replaced a leaky radiator with new one from Cox & Buckles and the car ran hot and easiily overheated. A 4 row fixed this......
  10. If you have an alloy rocker cover and roller rockers, the ticking could be coming from rockers coming into contact with the cover. I changed my cover and the new one caused a ticking and left minor witness marks on the inside of the cover..
  11. You may find the dashboard oil pressure gauge is inaccurate showing high or low, especially if it is the original. I replaced my original gauge (cica 1969) with a dual oil water/oil version and tested the pressure against my PI pressure gauge when I found the reading was noticeably dropped less on the new one. In my case I found the old gauge was reading between 10PSI high, which was a bit of a shock! But the actual pressure was within the Triumph specification/limits. Mark.
  12. Spotted this in a marshalls car at SPA classic recently, He purchased it from a German TR supplier in Koln. http://blob:https%3A//www.flickr.com/b1a20177-165e-4c5a-ac37-f3649486bcc1 Mark
  13. Hi Tom, Looked like you a had a ball out on the track. I got to to the SPA classic a couple of weeks ago, had 1 track session booked but got persuaded to do another, just had to Here's a short clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sm7kyGWtgmY regards, Mark.
  14. I converted my non-o/d TR6 gearbox from a Stag o/d box many years ago and I recall the solenoid was horizontal, pointed to the rear of the car. It required the removal of a tiny section of the floor pan out flange to give it clearance to the solenoid & make it fit. Mod wasn't noticeable when the cover was refitted. Mark.
