TR2 help needed near Droitwich

Recommended Posts

Hello All.

My name is Tom, I have been asked by a friend of mine to help get is late father's TR2 going. Firstly this car is not for sale, it is going to go to one of his family, they used to do classic rallies together.

I am into classic land rovers, so have some knowledge. Anyways the 2 x SU carbs are off the engine, i have a receipt from Moss, for a carb kit HS6 aud209, I presume that the carbs are ready to go back on. 

I am fairly sure I can get the carbs on, and hopefully into running condition. The car has not been on the road for roughly 6 years. Would there be anyone that is local that members would recommend to bring it up to road worthy condition again. And possibly be a point of technical support if needed.

Thanks for any pointers. 

Regards

Tom

The TR2 used H4 SUs, so that HS6 kit may not be the best option unless you want to upgrade the carbs.  I like the H4s on my 2

Cheers

It could be that the engine is off a later TR model which used H6 carbs or HS6 carbs

You ned to make contact with the local TR Register group, likely have someone to come by and look at the car, and also know trusted local traders to help,

Droitwhich think thats, Birmingham Group?

Can someone confirm?

Tom,

If you feel the need for professional help Worcester Classics are not far from you. Simon is the chap to ask for.

No connection just a happy customer.

Many TR2s have high port heads with 1 3/4" SUs.

Thanks for the replies, my friend was in the TR register, membership has lapsed now.

I will find out some more today, but the car is a bit of a mixture of parts, so could we'll have later SU's fitted 

Any contacts will be most welcome.

Thanks again
