Help and Advice wanted ref TR4

Recommended Posts

Check your engine mountings then, if you use the Landrover round mounts then the engine will sit a bit higher so you maybe able to get away with a flush guard like the works cars

Thanks, yes it did occur to me maybe my engine mounts could be a bit tired.  I'll look at the LR option for sure.

For the Liège Rally, the roughest of all in the early 1960s, the Comps Dept fitted a sump shield as shown in the attached photos.

Sorry - the images did not upload. I have no idea why not as it has always worked in the past.

Another attempt, but failed again.  I give up!

Have queried with Wayne.

+1  My sump is clear of a guard mounted to the underside of the chassis.

Off at a tangent here...From what I recall of our buy out of stock from Abingdon when it closed was that one of the alloy Leyland ST sump guard kits bought (? maybe 1800 or Mini?) included a thick rubber pad to wedge between it and the power unit bottom.  The engine was probably stabilised with additional brackets so I guess the sump guard added little in that area, only added shock and/or fretting impact protection.

Any use on a TR?

It is said the Austin 7 racing boys used to use motorway/roadwork signs for undershields - nice big bit of corrosion proofed aluminium for free....

Moto x , trials bikes and seriously mucky rally cars used to use the foam rubber packing to keep mud and stones from collecting on the guard.

Logical when I think about it.  Thanks for that Hamish.
