  6. Evening Pete, no you have not missed my posts, I am finding yours most interesting. At the moment I don’t have the time to carry out such a time consuming rebuild. I was losing a lot of oil from the push rod tubes and the catch tank was getting more oil in than usual. Did a pressure test on the cylinders and found that No4 was well down. We were thinking of doing the engine next year but as you know we do a lot of miles and decided to bring it forward. The crankshaft may of found another problem that I have being trying to rectify for a while, the car shakes at 57 / 62mph hopefully we can now get that sorted. Mike and Carole. Redrose group
  7. Afternoon Pete still enjoying you post. I am having my engine rebuilt. The lads put the crankshaft on the balancing machine and said that they could probably only get it 70% balanced. As it had been worked on before not very successfully. I have got another from our local TR specialist (Craig TR Bitz) so that’s on the machine being balanced. Mike. Redrose group

    Just taken the steering column out of my 4a and was just wondering if you can use the lower steering shaft knuckle off the TR5 or do you have to fit the flexible rubber coupling. Mike. Redrose group
  12. Morning Mark, as the others it’s a no. I have just done mine and found the easiest way for me was to put the car up on ramps at the front and stands at the rear, get the car level. Put a jack under the sump and under the gearbox a small gearbox lift on wheels. Undo all fixing slide back and twist and pull upwards from the rear. When putting back do in reverse and with a bit of luck it will slide back in on the gearbox lift. Mine pushed straight in, do not force it in, good luck. Mike. Redrose group
  13. Evening Pete, I am enjoying your engine strip down. As you did not see you engine running you will have no idea if you push rod tubes are leaking. I don’t know if you can check them or if your sending cylinder head away if they can check them, mine let a lot of oil past so will be have my head rebuilt and having the tubes changed. Mike. Redrose group
  14. We had a great time last year and have it in the diary already. Good to get money off again, we will be there on the Sunday. Mike. Redrose group
  15. Evening all I will be having some work carried out on my cylinder head in January. In the estimate they have included 2 items I would like some advice on please. 1 dip and and then wash in anti-rust bath. 2 resin impregnate to tackle porosity if it was your cylinder head would you have is done.
