Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

Hi Rod, that sounds like my kind of shopping. I need to do a bit if that myself. Looking at getting a compressor and a shot blasting rig at the moment. Thankfully all the welding is now complete on my car and the rolling shell is in fresh paint waiting for the all the bits to be refitted. Haven’t ma...

Re: Does anyone have a photo of the back of the fuse box

Pretty sure there is one in my parts stash complete with wiring attached. I will have a look tomorrow.

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

Hi Rod, hello from another forum user (and Facebook hater). I’m halfway through the restoration of my drophead and the installation of a v8. Looking forward to following progress on your resto.

Cheers,
Rich.

Re: Triumph TR7 - Electric fan Positioning

Hi, I removed the complete fan and idler assembly on my 7 and installed the electric fan and shroud behind the rad. I wired mine exactly the same as saabfest and it always cooled the engine well with the temperature gauge never moving more than a fraction above the quarter mark even after longer run...

Re: Triumph TR7 - Kenlowe Fan Problem

Hi, I’m no expert but logic would suggest to me that there is either a problem with the wiring to the temperature sensor or the sensor itself such that there is no signal getting from the sensor to trigger the fan.

Re: POWER STEERING

I agree with Beans in that if you are going to take the time and expense to fit power steering you should do it in tandem with a quicker rack to reduce the amount of steering input required. The original manual rack is a compromise with 3.9 turns lock to lock in order to make the steering effort acc...

Re: POWER STEERING

I agree that the original manual steering rack should be adequate where the car still runs on the original sized tyres but cars running on wider rubber require more steering effort at parking speeds. My car has 195/50/15 tyres on the front with the roller bearings on the top of the struts and is unc...

Re: POWER STEERING

I, like Beans, have also been looking at the hydraulic system offered by Classic Driving Developments. It seems like a well engineered solution and has a rack with 2.84 turns lock to lock. Personally I would rather have a hydraulic power steering system than an electric one as I believe it will prov...

Re: Fuel gauge late is full

Hi, it could be due to a break in the green and black wire that runs from the sender in the tank to the fuel gauge. Check the continuity of this wire. It is also possible (although unlikely) that the new gauge is also faulty.

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Beans is correct as usual. The low fuel delay unit has always been located screwed to the top of the instrument binnacle on all the cars that I have worked on. I have never seen it located either in the engine bay or under the dash.

Re: New Door Seals

We fitted similar looking generic seals when we restored the blue dhc, however the doors would not shut cleanly as the part of the moulding that is squashed between the door and body was in a slightly different position to the originals. This resulted in the moulding squishing upwards and forming an...

Re: Flamenco Red CAD

Hi John, Although my fixedhead is a Speke car which would originally have had the black back panel, it was sporting a red panel when I purchased it courtesy of the previous owner. I will of course aim to return it to the correct spec when I finally get round to doing the restoration. The convertible...

Re: Flamenco Red CAD

Hi John,

Looks great. My old fixed head, which I still have but needs serious work, is flamenco. One day it will see the road again. In the meantime my Carnelian convertible has been painted and similarly now needs putting back together. Good luck with your rebuild.

Cheers,
Rich.
