  1. As you may have seen on the news Unipart Automotive have gone into administration. No pay for July, so claim it back from the government. Same for notice. Kept on by kpmg for 2 weeks to help close it down. Therefore, if I can't find a similar job role pretty soon, the TR will have to go. It has won Pride of Ownership at the IWE a few times. Insured for 10k Hope to make it to IWE, but it seems a long way from Dorset, and cancelling the hotel would save shed loads of dosh.
  2. Anyone know of a source for a replacement sump for a 4.6? Thanks Jo

  4. This month's TRAction has an image of a placemat. I remember this as a jigsaw, but it's one I passed on to a charity shop several years ago. So the questions that follow: Are there jigsaws featuring our favourite motorcars? Are there enough jigsaws featuring our favourite motorcars? Best wishes Al

  7. Hi had my TR7V8 since last September and covered around 3000 miles since without mishap...But..this AM tried the headlights and sure enough the Drivers side light doesn't rise, I found the Relays and one clicks and the other doesn't so I swapped them over and sure enough the same headlight refuses to rise, so I'm assuming that the relay isn't getting power...where to look next? Any help much appreciated Regards Brian
  8. Hi I am new to this site and wondered if anybody could help. I have a TR8 RHD. With a Rimmer bros converted SD1 Rack. It has a problem leaking fluid from rivets which hold a ring inside the tube.. I have heard that the Triumph Stag power rack will fit and wondered if anybody could confirm this or could my rack be rebuilt... I am from Hampshire... Cheers
  9. My Old Magellan Roadmate has become somewhat unreliable these days, so thinking about replacing it with something more up to date. any recomendations? Don't want anything too fancy, 12V power only will do, don't really need road traffic conditions, or camera positions etc. Bob.
  10. I've got a problem with low speed manoeuvres in my tr7(v8), I get a loud knocking noise, almost a cracking noise when turning the wheel. It seems to be coming from the nearside and is not continuous. It recently passed its mot so I assume there's no play in the important areas. Any suggestions??
  11. Has anyone fitted the Tony a Hart (Stag specialist) hand brake improver often posted in eBay ? Aircraft quality aluminium, any feedback would be appreciated, Jo
  12. Hi all, Is it possible to remove and replace the ceiling lining (so I can install insulation) without damaging it or would I be better off taking it to a motor trimmer? Next, having installed insulation in the rest of the cabin, I want to return the carpet pieces that run along under the doors. Any advice on the best adhesive to use? Must be available in Aust. The carpet is being fixed to closed-cell foam. Thanks in advance, Michael
  13. My drive is begining to look like the oil is leaking from below upwards! AND not only that but its FUCHS 20/50 full synthetic... The sump looks fairly well protected against corrosion so it must be leaking from quite high I would imagine andy usual suspects that I should interview first so to speak? All help much appreciated Bonnietiler
  14. For those who are having difficulty sourcing a decent sound system for the TR7, this is what I have, its small , compact , and fits in the dash. This is due to the depth of the unit, as it does not have a cd slot. Its a radio, has 3 Interfaces: 1 x USB input, 1 x SD input, 1 x AUX input Some members have contacted me regarding my article in TR Action and asked where can i get one. Please follow the link. But to be honest,I listen to the V8 more than the radio Check the sellars other items too, as he has quite a few types of radio on his list http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Car-

  16. Hi, My TR7 has a Rover SD1 V8 on board and I want to install a new AC compressor. I am looking at working off the original mounting assembly, but that includes a very heavy idler pulley. Is there any particular reason the idler pulley has to stay if I can lock the compressor in place with the right belt tension? Words of wisdom please. Thanks Michael
  17. I see a tr7 v8 convertible for sale at Peter Byrne for a very unreasonable £29950! Surely prices haven't risen that much? Jo.

No offers below 300 please. Any questions, let me know. Cheers Steve.
  19. Hi, I am just about to install a Davies Craig water pump and fan controller in my TR7 3.5L V8. It allows you to set the target water temperature, but the question is, what is the optimum temp for different uses (eg, best economy, racing)? Any ideas? Michael

  21. looking for a quick rack for a tr7/v8 rep any one got one ??????????????
  22. Back in the early 80's in my mid teens I used to work at a petrol station on the A46 near Old Sodbury on the Avon Gloucestershire border. The garage was called Roman Camp Garage and had a workshop round the back of it. The Workshops were owned and run by a chap from Hawkesbury Upton called Dougie Dawe. Dougie was quite well known in the local area as a Rally enthusiast. I seem to remember Dougie purchasing 3 Works TR8's that were ex Tony Pond cars? I can still recall the amazing noise these cars made each evening as he pulled out and accelerated hard off down the A46. You could still h
  23. Hello guys, I'm still playing, in my few spare time, on an ex US, carburetted + air con TR8. I've removed all the air con parts (I'm allergic), and rebuilt a standard TR7 heater with new radiator and all anccilaries to fit under the dashboard. But it's not the problem : I've also modified the cooling fans wiring loom for something far more simple, and now need to find the temperature cut in/out of the sensor in the radiator (a rebuilt standard TR8 unit) : is there here any TR7 V8 or TR8 owner who could help ? Thanks in advance,
