  1. Is there a set distance at which the cylinder head needs re-torquing after a major re-build? I've done 222 miles since a major re-build in 2016.I know I should get out more but some stuff got in the way (including a house) but I plan to put a few more miles on starting soon. Thanks in advance Keith
  2. A trio of proper quality items recently introduced by my old pal Martin Jay, Dissie Doc . . . . . . and no, I'm not on commission before you ask !! http://www.distributordoctor.com/new_parts_available.html The AC Delco condensers have plagued me in the past, the OE items were never much cop and the subsequent Unipart, CI etc repros worse, these things from DD should work properly as they come from the same guys who make his top notch Lucas condensers. His agent in India seems to be doing an excellent job from what I've seen - not surprisingly, the chaps actually manufacturing Martin's items are delighted to be able to make things up to a standard rather than down to a price. No question, they do a bloody good job. Sure they cost more, quality does. The other two items are V8 rotor arms, again pukka spec and both versions. New supplier, and the rotors look to me like the dog's danglies. 5 year guarantee against manufacturing defect, even in competition application, must be a record ? There are plenty of budget 'one size fits all' repros on offer, but unfortunately by trying to cover both applications in one design these things don't do a decent job in either fitment . . . . . as in they do work, but only just, and certainly not a high rpm. Admittedly the budget onesies are much cheaper, but you get what you pay for . . . . . and what's the point in a V8 that won't rev cleanly ? Cheers Alec
  3. I'm in the bad books of a couple of Wedge owners - for not having mentioned here that I've been clearing surplus parts on the 'bay . . . . . In fairness I had mentioned my stuff At The Bar, but evidently I should have mentioned it in the TR7/8 Forum too . . . . Link - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?item=381473955169&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&_ssn=alecs_tr_garage_clearance&_sop=1 Can I remind interested viewers that if I have something on auction then it stays on auction - I don't play games with ending listings early for a sudden buy it now or an off ebay sale. That sort of dodgy dealing simply disappoints everyone else who bids and watches in good faith. Cheers Alec
  4. At last the Round Tuit is being applied to my excessive hoard of Wedgie parts, and I've made a modest start on sorting some of the heftier surplus bits and listing on eBay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/alecs_tr_garage_clearance/m.html?item=381019257295&fits=Model%3ATR+7&hash=item58b68479cf&pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 There will be a lot more stuff listed over the next few months, as time allows . . . . I hate to think how many hundred Wedgie parts of all descriptions I have spare !! Feel free to enquire if you're desperately looking for a whatever, As regards eBay listings, I'll consider a direct approach on 'buy it now' items, but auctions run their course - I hate seeing something I'm watching or bidding on suddenly get pulled off, so I try not to do it to others. I don't use the Forum's insecure messaging system, but can be contacted as captaintr and that's at hotmail of the uk persuasion. Cheers Alec
  5. I still have a TR7 clutch cover and friction plate for sale . . . . see Buy Sell TRade http://www.tr-register.co.uk/forums/index.php?/topic/47649-bargain-clutches-for-sale/ And I'd be pleased to see it find a new home ! Cheers Alec
  6. Does anyone else find they can move their distributor cap slightly when it's in situ? It's almost like the spring clips holding it down are the wrong width or not strong enough. It doesn't seem to affect the car's running but I'm just nervous it's going to do something unpredictable. This is on a 1981 4-pot by the way.
  7. bearing has disintegrated leaving outer ring in crankshaft, any ideas how to get it out ?
  8. I am urgently seeking a Pageant Blue TR7 Fixed Head Coupe for a display please. Must be available to travel to Nottingham on June 8th 2014 - all day. Please email press@tr-register.co.uk if you have one or know of the whereabouts of a suitable car! Regards, Wayne Scott Press Officer TR Register
