  1. I think it would be a great donor car for the restoration of another solid but incomplete long door 2. Dan
  2. Peter, thank you for raising the topic and I hope someone can root around and find that video. Cheers Dan
  3. Can I get a pair for my 2 when they are ready? They look nice! Cheers Dan
  4. Since some care was taken in using a period-correct block, you may want to consider using the low-port head just so the top end of the engine is period correct as well. The high port will obviously use the different manifold and carbs, so the difference will be obvious under the bonnet. Cheers Dan P.S. Peter did my low port head and it is great, so he is the man.
  5. There is an early color catalogue for the first run of TR2 colors. It has actual paint samples protected by plastic covers. Bill P mentioned the Registrr has a copy, or I could lend you mine Cheers Dan
  6. Yes, reverse seems to be fine (although backing out of the driveway when it is cold is often my only reversing time). I was concerned it was oil leaking from the rear main onto the clutch surface, but again I am not very bright on whether that is a realistic concern. Of course a clutch bleed or adjustment would be a huge relief if that were the fix for it. I may not have been vigorous enough slipping the clutch, as it is counter-intuitive for me. Dan
  7. I have a similar problem with my Doretti, getting serious clutch judder when pulling out in first, especially uphill and especially after the car is fully warmed up. Other gears shift fine. I have tried slipping the clutch, to no avail. Someone suggested bleeding the clutch or altering the clutch slave attachment hole, but I can't see why this would help. Not trying to hijack the thread on John's issue but maybe address both. Cheers Dan
  8. Congrats Ken, and thanks for posting. I think quite a few of us followed Pogo with envy as he sorted a really unique TR2. Please keep us up to date as you put the car to good use! Cheers Dan
  9. RIP Cyril. Here is an image from the Mayfair article:
  10. Had not seem this image before. Shows the abundance of the early US offerings! Cheers Dan https://www.ebay.com/itm/N347-1954-NEGATIVE-SEXY-LADY-ADVERTISING-TRIUMPH-TR-2-CARS-ALLIED-VAN-LINES-SEE/202758870481?hash=item2f355ed5d1:g:fp0AAOSwlPZdWD-S
  11. Not to be outdone, my buddy shared this photo with his 3A and his lovely daughter. Dan
  12. I told Marco I would do a surf-themed photo shoot and it was more pleasant than I expected! Cheers Dan
  13. Gawd, one of the best things about my TR2 is the original single 18 inch silencer, which is pretty loud. But I really enjoy sharing the music around the neighborhood. I also think the way you drive the car can drastically change how loud it is as you go along. Dan
