    TR6 Fuel Issue

    Standard exhaust manifold ?

    Column movement

    Also the outer tube is made up of two sections just crimped together. It’s possible the movement your detective when you grab the indicator area is movement in this joint. Check the lower section is turning when you twist the top section. Cameron

    Carpets

    I’ll second that, Tr Shop carpets are a good quality for the price. I would also suggest you consider what your putting under the carpet.
  4. Some good news. Excellent !! Best Regards Cameron
  5. Still waiting. As it happens I don’t mind waiting a little longer. Cameron
  6. Interesting article. I’m I right in saying I remember one of these cars being at an international in the mid 70s. Cameron.
  7. If I remember correctly this is a US spec car you have and you were intending upgrading the engine. What have you done, or what are you intending to do. Efi is certainly a consideration, if your happy with that sort of approach, however personally for me if it’s not Pi then carbs would be my choice. If you have no previous experience with Weber’s then it’s important to appreciate what your taking on.I’ve been using them since the mid 70s, firstly on a Lotus Cortina then on my Tr6 and I’m still learning. I would say only go this route if your prepared to take on the extra learning and enjoy it Having said all that, once the Weber’s are set up properly they are very reliable and car be reasonably economical, particularly when touring. Last year three of us covered 2500miles across France and Spain, my car and two PIs, I used the least fuel. However give the car a bit of welly and your down in the mid teens MPG. I would recommend you watch this series of videos .This guy explains things well and will answer a lot of your questions. Cameron
  8. I’ve been impressed with this stuff over the years Cameron
  9. Thanks again all, the Other gaskets mentioned above do not fit the Racetorations cover,I did look at the Rimmers one at Stratford last year and it was much wider. My only concern was that Darryl wasn’t sure his current O ring gasket would work with the older flat groove covers, however Steve has found it can seal reliably. l’ve ordered one, however there out of stock, so could be a long wait. Cameron
  10. Thanks, I’ll do that Cameron
  11. Interesting indeed. When I spoke to Darryl last week he wasn’t confident that the O ring would work with the flat grove. Obviously from you experience Steve, they do.I assume the O ring won’t sit in the flat grove and you just have to carefully watching its position as you tighten the cover down. Thanks for your help Cameron
  12. Hi All Ive had a search for an answer to this with no luck, so I’ll have to ask. I have an early (20 year plus) rocker cover from Racetorations that was originally fitted with a flat cork gasket. The current offering have a rounded channel that takes the newer O ring seal. I’ve spoken to Darryl about this and said he would let me know if he had any cork gaskets left, however I’ve heard nothing so assume he hasn’t. Before I have a go at making my own, has anyone had a similar problem. Thanks Cameron
  13. In that case, fresh fuel and a good thrashing might do the trick
  14. Also... are you using an electric fuel pump and a pressure regulator and at what pressure. Is this the first or last carb to get fuel. Did you check the float height by removing the main jet, should be 25mm from the jet housing or 41mm from the top cover Cameron
  15. If this was my car I would be removing the shaft, dismantling it and giving it all a good clean and inspection. If you remove all the spacers,springs and rockers in order and feed them onto a length of cord or wire, that will keep the order correct for reassembling. Cameron

    Advice on help.

    It sounds like you can do most of the work yourself, which under the circumstances would be the most appropriate way with a family car like yours There are a number of us in your area who would be more than happy to help you out. Keep in touch Cameron

    I would suggest a John Skinner https://www.john-skinner.co.uk/triumph/ Cameron
  18. Thanks for that Tom, most helpful. Cameron
  19. Thanks all , I think I will probably get the 63mm filters, unless there are any other suggestions.
  20. These are the ones I was referring to https://www.webcon.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=43
  21. Morning All When I originally acquired this car back in the 90s the Weber’s had KN oval filters fitted. These were a very tight fit, and an absolute pain to remove. Over the years they got damaged and I finally removed them. As a temporary measure I’ve been using foam filters. I fully appreciate these are disastrous waiting to happen, and need to be replaced ASAP. My Weber’s are fitted with 38mm Air horns. Strictly speaking I should have 40mm space between the end of the air horn and the filter end plate. To achieve that I would need the 83mm KN filters, however that’s going to be tight. I could use the 63mm filters, however that obviously reduces the gap. The other option I have considered is the new Webcon mesh filters. These are not the old style basic mesh type that wouldn’t stop anything smaller than a sparrow, but a new design with three filter screens that appear to filter well. There is a slight reduction in power, but not a major consideration for me these days. I would rather not fit shorter air horn as the car run well as it is. I would be interest to hear what others in a similar situation have done. Thanks Cameron
  22. I fitted 4 of these last year, very pleased with them in all weathers, and noticeable quieter as well. Cameron
  23. Lovely Car, and plenty of chestnuts!! Cameron
  24. They certainly have because the some of the fakes have numbers stamped on the hex nut.
  25. Hi Richard When I bought a set of genuine Minilites last year I kept one of the replica Minilites I was replacing as a spare. I sold the other 3 to local members with alloys and no spare. May be worth asking around, should be possible to find one. Obviously much lighter to carry around. All the Best Cameron
