Just like to report that I have just done the handbrake mod on page 33 of TRAction 269 (Sept 2013) and it has improved the performance of this a lot on my TR4A. Can now use just one hand to pull on handbrake and it holds on steep hills. Just like to add that new pivot hole is 11mm centre to centre from old hole. Also you need to make sure both cables move at same time on equaliser plate (may need to lengthen/shorten one) and when handbrake is partly on, both wheels offer same resistance (jack up rear of car and try to turn each wheel in turn by hand - resistance on both should be similar. If not then adjust square adjuster on backplate.) Both wheels should spin freely when brake is off. Moving pivot hole does mean a bit more movement of handbrake lever but not really noticeable. My handbrake is fully on at 6 to 7 clicks on lever. Many thanks to Tim Hunt for posting this in TRAction - it has improved my 4A a lot. Keith P.S. don't be tempted to move new hole more than the 11mm or it will foul inside of handbrake bracket!
Here are some images of the cars and the venues at the 2013 Vintage Triumph Register Convention / Triumphest at from October 2-6, 2013, courtesy of one of the attendees, David Gunn. The hosts this year were the Triumph Travelers Sports Car Club (http://www.triumphtravelers.org/), the Triumph marque club in the Bay Area. I wasn't able to attend -- it's sort of like having the TRR IWE be a 4000 mile round trip for the weekend. And I live in the middle of our country! You'll see a powder blue TR3 in some of the photos that did make the ride (on a trailer) from our local club to the west coast. Dedicated Triumph folk. You'll also see the club scene is a little more inclusive over here -- it's hard for us to draw a line between "TR" and "Triumph" in the US. Heck, our local show is the "All-British Car Show" where any British marque of any age is welcome. Enjoy the pix. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dgunn/sets/72157636342731323/ PS. Excuse the tags. This system is kind of stupid right now -- where's the "all models" tag?
