I know it’s a Tr4a but all this about dash lights mine have just arrived with a high level brake light, another little job to do in lock down, I’m going to take out the rheostat what have others replaced it with, I was thinking of a 2 position heater switch for some small cabin lights then boot and bonnet light.

  12. Good afternoon all, as Christmas is getting close and I cannot send all the forum members a card I thought I would post one on the social scene. Happy Christmas everyone have the best time you can and let’s look forward to a better TRing year in 2021 all the best. Mike & Carole Redrose group.
  13. Thanks Mick, but unfortunately we will not be able to attend this time as we are booked on the Traws weekend as it’s the same weekend. For others looking for a day or two out the Donnington weekend it is is well worth a visit. It is a well run event and you can get up close and personal to the race cars and drivers. Also the Leicestershire TR group make a good coffee. Mike Redrose group
  14. Afternoon Paul, it must be angle of the photo as there is a good 3” gap around the filter to the nearest pipe. As Stuart says the copper pipe is for the brakes, thanks for your concern though. Mike Redrose group
  15. Morning all, I may of found the problem with the oil leak, this morning I came to remove the oil filter and the adapter plate spun round as well, when I installed it I did torque it to 12 lbs, and only put the filter on hand tight. As I have a new one may as well put it on, did a dry run first to see if all fitted, there were some slight differences in measurements but not a lot. All fitted and car has been running for about 30 min and no oil. The only thing I did not do last time was the put blue loctite on the adapter bolt do you think it could of loosened with the vibration? Mike Redr
  16. Just got a new spin on oil filter adapter and this one is different than the one I have on, this new one is a one peace unit looks like the bolt holds all the unit on, my old one is in two bits and the oil filter pushes the adapter plate onto the large rubber seal. Mike Redrose group
  17. As I cannot go out in the TR Carole got me to put up the out side lights this week, hopefully Santa will see us this year and stop with some gifts. Mike Redrose group
  18. Had the same problem with my spin on oil filter adapter but lost all the oil from newly rebuilt engine after running it for 2500 miles, ordered new parts fitted and did another 700miles before putting the the car in the garage for three weeks, (doing bathroom conversion). Had to move the car out of the garage yesterday and no oil on the garage floor, left car running for a while come to move car back into the garage and there’s oil on the drive, looks like I will have to do Bobs conversion to stop this happening again. Has anyone JB welded the parts together? Mike Redrose group
  19. Happy Birthday Andrew have a great day. Mike Redrose group
  20. Got from another site, as I don’t watch this program. Mike Redrose Group
  21. It looks good there used to be a big factory here, not been for a long time but most of the site is house’s now. It used to smell nice when I used to deliver goods to site. Mike Redrose Group
  22. Well I think I put the roof on to early this year as this morning was a little warm inside the car. Had a good run around enjoying the wonderful countryside we have, Chapel-En-Le-Frith, Dove holes, Tideswell, Longnor, Blackshaw Moor, and back home. Mike Redrose Group
  23. Well done Paul that looks fantastic looks good with the red top. Hopefully you can get out and enjoy as you think of your next project. Mike Redrose Group
