Re: MGF 15" wheels

Hi Cam,
I have MGF 15” wheels on my car. They fitted straight on with no issues. I cosmetically modified the MGF centre caps using body filler and sprayed them silver to match with stick on Triumph badges.

Re: Front ride height

Hi Mals1960, I had the same issue with excessive front ride height when I fitted the Ford strut top bearings. I ended up removing them and replacing with the alternative bearing kit which is supplied by Rimmer Brothers and also I believe the Wedge Shop have them as well. This kit fits in place of th...

Re: Triumph TR7 Boot lining

Hugh,
If you use automotive carpet it has a certain amount of give so that you can stretch and fit it over curved sections like the wheel arches without it rucking up. Also you need to use a heavy duty adhesive which you should be able to get from the same suppliers as the carpet.

Re: Another wiring question

There is a circuit breaker in the headlamp circuit that is normally located behind the fuse box. It is a small black rectangular object with two wires attached (brown from memory). Some years ago my headlamps were not raising and it turned out that this circuit breaker had failed. Replacing it cured...

Re: Inner wings

Hi, if you do decide to go down the route of just letting in repair strips or patches be careful when cutting or welding the left hand side (nearside in UK) as the loom associated with the headlamps etc runs inside that wing cavity and usually sits somewhere on the top side of the inner wing towards...

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.
