Re: airhose to airflow-meter (TR7-fi)

I would take that silver tape off, clean it really good and double wind black duct tape around it. Use string like the original. It will look like the original. The oil is oil and fume condensate. Normal. The advantage is: costs next to nothing, looks original, last a long time (going on 14 years). ...

It's one of those things that when you think you know the right way they go, put them on the other way and you'll be right.....like the head restraints. :P

Re: Suspension turret strengtheners ?

It was meant to be driven on sunny days, top down, in the desert, in summer where only the occasional shower that popped up would you have to put the top up in a hurry. Of course the hot dry desert sun would quickly dry everything out. The rest of the time it was in the garage. That's were my car sp...

Re: Lights left on buzzer

Never had a problem laving lights on (other than the occasional door light that inadvertently gets knocked getting out of the car). It's just part of the shut down procedure. As for new cars my Volt's computer automatically shuts lights off after ten minutes if left on (ad everything else). Again a ...

Re: New Gearbox loom additional wires?

If I am not mistaken the two extra wires are for the light in the automatic gearbox which the manual doesn't have/use.

Re: Catastrophe!

Oh, No! Not the 8! You have so much time and money into it. I too currently have my 7 stored (under a cheap car cover) under my "shed". I made mine out of 2" (or what ever size) ABS plumbing pipe with a tarp over it (on its third one last summer). While there are tall trees around, no...

Re: Alternator fitting

The same thing applies if you install a gear reduction starter. If it doesn't appear to fit, it may have to be clocked.

Re: Catastrophe!

When I had the Integra I used the air even in winter (to take out the excess moist air) and never had any problems until the cabin inter cooler sprang a leak spraying coolant in a mist through the vents. I had just picked up my sister at the airport (she was looking after the housed/pets while I too...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

I use blogger and Google Foto's to store my low resolution online pictures. And pretty easy to link them in forums from there. Indeed FB is much easier & quicker. And it show in the number of posts :twisted: as a result everything is lost within a few days. FB's business plan is to keep you com...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

You can add pictures directly but you have to resize them with whatever photo program came with your computer that allows you to do this. Any size like 640x480 pixels or smaller will do. FB et al do this automatically. Modern cameras and smart phones take such a large picture that you can print a po...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

A word about discoloured window washer boxes. If you take them and soak them in a pail of bleach and water you can restore them to the original translucent look. I did that to the Spider over the first winter on initial "restoration"/bringing up to par for "from out of country safety ...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

FB has its uses. It's mean for the flittering thought/picture of the day (amongst other less noteworthy applications) not for what a forum is for. Yes, that is my Spider in the foreground on The Wedge Owner's of America's FB page that has been up for some time. 8 of the 13 wedges shown had Gold or G...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

I don't use mine during the winter (just above freezing with it often cloudy and some times rain) and mostly I just use my 2013 Volt (EREV). In summer I go to car shows and the occasional British car club outing (OECC). This Fall (September) I took my car on a 3,000+ mile journey to Portland ABFM (O...

Triumph TR7 Window wipers

I never had a problem with wiper speeds although I did pull the wiper rack, clean and regrease (with clear synthetic grease) as a matter of course in the first winter of operation (2006/7). I replaced the blades with refills from a major brand. I had to adjust the parking switch the next spring when...

Re: Triumph TR7 - Electric fan Positioning

While theoretically the body of the electric motor will block a little of the radiator core from getting a full blast of air, the air temperature will be the same as any heating of the air by the warm running fan motor is negligible. It's all arguing how many angels can dance on the head of a pin as...
