  1. I have a load of original Girling 16P brake calipers that are about to be refurbished by Bigg Red. I have had one pair finished in black to go behind the black wire wheels on my BRG racecar. my plan is to have these plated (not painted) in either the original type gold or silver. There will be new pistons and seals etc. Basically, they will be fully reconditioned and ready to fit. The point of this post is to ask that if anyone is looking for a pair and wants then done in a particular finish, let me know as I will be taking to be done next week. Price depends on finish. Final point is that these are original castings and not the repro ones!! David
  2. I have a Lucas 15ac alternator with a external regulator, and intend replacing with a 18ARC with an internal regulator. Car has been rewired with a RHD TR5 wire loom. Is there a wiring drawing showing the modification required to the wiring
  3. Hi I am nearing the end of a complete renovation of my 1967 TR250 and am struggling to find either replacement or new rear wing badges as mine are somewhat worn.I have hunted in the states and in the UK. with no luck. Getting new ones made is expensive and no one is sure whether they are paint infill and chrome letters or are enameled. They certainly do not look like regular enamel cream infill so i have ground to a halt. I wondered if anyone knew what the actual make up is and where i might get them renovated or replaced? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Regards David

    FND 205F

    FND 205F Looks like a TR250 but advertised as a TR5! Used to ATR 5F I think.... Chassis Number CD 1762L and a CC Engine number with PI added.... Smells like a rat......very naughty behaviour IMHO https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1009168
  5. Folks. I have been constantly hearing regards fake cars. Time to do something simple ie post the suspect cars and let some so called experts help unsuspecting buyers. It will be very easy to create a database on FaceBook. yes I know a lot of people dont like FB but do you like the idea of of people buying cars that are 'Ringer's?' Doesnt that damage our reputations too. Those new owners might just join the register one day. So there we are to start the ball rolling I have started a FB group for this. If you have good knowledge please pop over and either give your expertise, post photos of cars or if you need a hand deciding anyway. Please help other to look after the Marque in this sense too. Tony The 'TR Ringers' FB group. To combat the despicable habit of selling cars for what they are not Such as Tr250's as Tr5's and Tr7 with a v8 as Tr8's I have started another group. You are free to join if you can give advise or want to check a car? The official wording is Welcome to this group. It has been formed to address the ever increasing number of Tr's that are being converted and then sold as something they didn't come out of the factory as for instance a Tr250 being sold as a Tr5 or a Tr7 which has had a 3500 v8 conversion. Whether you want to help stop the phenomenon or need help assessing a car. Please join the cause. https://www.facebook.com/groups/234504900530639/?ref=br_rs
  6. Not everyones cup of tea I know, but defo the best way to share generic info and photos. As a life long Michelotti fan and friend of the family I felt it was time to start a FaceBook page dedicated to Michelotti and the 1200 designs of his which became cars as although we love our Triumphs he designed Jaguars and all sorts. Did you know he has 192 Ferrari designs that became cars? Anyway for anyone interested in seeing and sharing there is now a FB group called The Michelotti Cars where fans and car owners can join in. https://www.facebook.com/groups/271937770263969/ All the best and look forward to seeing some of you. Tony

  8. Hello guys, do you know if there is a supplier who sell decent plenum corner repair panels, ie left and right extremities of the plenum panel ? I've got a TR5 and a very early (CP 2500*) TR6 who are rusted here, so ready (or nearly ready) to use repair panels could be usefull !
  9. Had problems with the Overdrive that turned out to be the switch. So I replaced it, but this one is nearly as bad in as much as the overdrive will keep dropping out and reengaging. Are they all from the same source or are some better than others? Definitely the switch because if I put pressure on it I can get The overdrive to cycle! Or has anyone managed a good modification?
  10. Hi Everyone I've not been on the TR Forum for a good while, mainly due to other car commitments but now I'm looking to do some work on my TR50 resto. I have a 2.5S saloon gearbox with J Type overdrive that I intend to install in my GT6. This would be a straight swap since I have been running it with an identical unit for nearly 30 years. This leaks profusely and is of unknown mileage, but still has an excellent shift. Once this swap is done I intend to have the ex-GT6 box rebuilt and eventually use it to replace the non overdrive unit currently fitted in the TR250. I'm looking to have the rebuild done by a local company since I'd like to be able to deliver it personally rather than risk using a courier. I've been asked the same questions -availability of spare parts for both the gearbox and overdrive. I'm not sure about the gearbox but it sticks in my mind that there is a company that rebuilds overdrives, or am I having a senior moment? Ideally I'd like to have the same company rebuild both and source the parts themselves. Any recommendations please for both parts suppliers and also rebuilders? Cheers Alan
  11. Hi. Ive never had the hood up on my car but decided last night to give It a go. What a PITA! Its nearly an inch short of the pins dropping into the header rail. I did manage it in the end by pulling and tugging on the the hinge arms. Result it is drum tight! It looks like a new canvas/mohair type and probably was a good fit prior to the chassis being changed by a P.O. Ill leave it up for a couple of weeks to see if it gives at all, but is there any thing else worth considering doing? Dave
  12. I have experienced a problem new to me and I am wondering if any one else has had this problem? The triangular box under the dash. labeled an Anti Torque strap in the moss catalogue, page 211 part 104, has fractured. This the small section on the bulkhead that supports the steering column and to which the column stays are bolted to. I am told it is metal fatigue? I am a "chunky" person but i do not use the steering wheel to lever myself in or out of the car. hence I am wondering how and why this small but vital piece breaks? It is not shown in the original ST parts manual considered I guess as part of the bulkhead, but Moss do show it as a separate part implying that failure is common. In nearly 46 years of TR ownership I have never heard of or seen this before. I would be interested in your views/experiences Duncan
  13. Hi Folks, a friend of mine requires his TA stud holes rejuvenating. Has anybody got an alignment jig I could borrow/hire/ for a week. I promise not to break it. I will save me making one Roger
  14. Bought a couple of new trunnions today just to sling in my parts bin. However Mr Moss does 2 types, a 'proper' one and a 'replacement' obviously there is a price difference and me being me went for the more expensive option! So the questions are: What IS the difference between the two? (how would one know that a 'cheap' one hadn't been put into a bag marked with the more expensive option!) Hypothetical question!! I note that the bottom has a steel base, is that correct? ROGERRRRRR one for you! Dave
  15. Has anybody used the Bastuck syncro rings and how would they rate them. Thanks Alan.

  17. Roger H suggested that someone had produced a small batch of panels for the rear 'seat' (if you can call it that ?) panel of the IRS cars. DRN 4D is distinctly lacking in the rear seat department, peeling off the bituminous soundproofing sheets brought the underlying sheet rust with it, and a fine panoramic view of the garage floor . . . . So, can anyone assist with a rear seat panel, patch, or whatever . . . . please ? Cheers Alec
  18. Having been shopping recently, I have a few bits and bobs available for sale! I have attached some photos showing some of the original Stanpart panels which will be for sale. These include doors, wings, bonnets, boots, windscreen frames and other parts for TR2 to TR6 cars. There's lots not in the pictures. I think I'm going to be busy over Christmas sorting stuff out. I also have some 6 cylinder engines, a complete TR250 bodyshell, gearboxes and all manner of other original Stanpart parts. In due course, pictures and descriptions of parts will be available to see online at www.stanpart.uk.com There's nothing to see at the moment. Visitors will be welcome to come and view parts if needs be. I am close to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, and the Coventry Transport Museum. I can be contacted by PM if needs be. David
  19. Hello All, I am getting very near to completing the restoration of my 250, & I am currently fitting the inner door mechanisms. I need an o/s door window glass lower window channel. this channel glues on to the bottom ot the glass & enablesthe w/winder unit to fit/slide across the the channel. this channel unit has a window stop bracket fitted to stop the window being wound up too high. this bracket stop is situated towards the front with the slides facing inwards. If anyone can help to obtain this channel I would be very grateful. My phone no is 01302 711235 Cheers Peter
  20. I have had the most senior moment ever. Having rebuilt my engine reground crank.new pistons cyl head having new valve seats etc.it was time to turn over the engine to build up the oil pressure before firing up the motor. Having spun the engine for ages but still no oil pressure I wondered what could be wrong. I went to bed that night & I couldnt sleep thinking what coud be wrong. Up in the next morning I decided to remove the sump & check the pump. After draining out the engine oil & 1/2 hour removing the sump what did I discover?. I (BL---Y) hadnt fitted the oil pump. The question I raise has anybody else suffered such a stupid senior moment. I have dropped many clangers in my time but never have been as stupid as this one. This is what happens when you become a member of the ( old farts club ). Peter
  21. I am reluctantly putting my 1967 TR250 up for sale due mainly to lack of use and other projects - the usual story!! I thought I would give this Forum first look before I put it up for sale on the usual sites. CD/916-L was built in October 1967 and shipped to Los Angeles. It has spent most of its life in California, according to the fairly extensive history that came with it. In 2000 it underwent a full restoration by XK's Unlimited, a Jaguar and British car specialist, costing over $30,000. In 2006 it was bought by a Canadian and shipped to Vancouver where it put on 2500 dry miles until I imported it in 2014. Since then it has only covered a further 1500 summer miles and has been kept in a heated carcoon through the winter. As you can see from the photos, this is a stunning car; the only thing stopping it being a concours winner is the fact that it is painted in a non-Triumph colour (Porsche Arena Red) and the restorer decided that satin black was more appropriate for the inside of the boot and engine bay. Also it now has minilites rather than factory wire wheels. Mechanically it is incredibly well sorted and starts and runs impeccably. For someone wanting a car they can just jump in and use, this is it! As would be expected after 17 years there are one or two small marks on the paint, which are barely noticeable. The chassis and body are rust free and I waxoyled the chassis as soon as it arrived, so there are no worries there. It is booked for an MOT on Tuesday so will come with 12 months. As mentioned, it does come with some history and receipts dating back to 1971 as well as some spares, including the original steering wheel (needing restored), tonneau cover and a Stanpart TR250 spare parts catalogue. I am asking for offers in the region of £27,995. Location is Aberdeenshire. Thanks Ali
  22. Just posted on the B/S/T section: http://www.tr-register.co.uk/classified/1236/Complete-dashboard-TR5250-LHD PM or email if any interest.
  23. Hi All in my 5 the headlight switch is on the right-hand side of the steering Colom, and the positions are Top=off middle side light bottom side & headlight So, when I got one from a supplier it was Top= side & headlight middle sides and bottom=off Can anyone throw some light on this (pardon the pun) have I ordered the wrong one ??????????

  24. Interesting article on pistons etc http://www.wbclassics.com/tech/tr6/engine/triumph-tr6-cast-piston-comparison
  25. This all makes fair sense. Fitting a cooler thermostat will not stop overheating - just delay it. http://www.tuneruniversity.com/blog/2012/04/low-temp-thermostats-whats-the-advantage/ Increasing pressure of radiator cap will raise boiling point. .... But to my mind may explode your TR2/3 Smiths heater....it is also said the bellows thermostat will not work correctly if over 4psi radiator cap pressure is used. http://www.tuneruniversity.com/blog/2011/06/beating-the-heat-advantage-of-a-high-pressure-radiator-cap/ link to Redline Water Wetter Moss Europe http://www.moss-europe.co.uk/water-wetter-335ml-mm220-115.html Probably cheaper on ebay - you can even buy the stuff premixed with de ionised water.
