Re: Small sunroof

Hi folks Just resurrecting this post. I can't believe how quickly time flies! I'm still working on the Weathershields sunroof and am at the point of fitting it, but I need the rear seal. Some old dealer fitting instructions and a parts list I found show the rear seal was originally made of "But...

Re: Latest trend in pop-up headlights?

Interesting that one of the "feedbacks" (is that a word?) says something like "...I expected to receive more than just a switch and some wire...".

Re: Weathershields Sunroof fitting - HELP!

Thanks beans. I managed to get it in by putting it in at an angle, but doing that has destroyed one front slider (the plastic cap, not the metal bit). The sliders were aftermarket nylon parts from Littleport Boat Haven, and look like they are 3D printed.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks

Weathershields Sunroof fitting - HELP!

Hi folks. I am having a hell of a job refitting the above. I just can't get the roof to go back in, i.e. engaging all four sliders in the metal channels. I can get one side in but not the other; I've tried putting the whole roof in at an angle to kind of stretch the distance between the sliders and ...

Re: Triumph TR7 subframe drain holes

Hi Cass
I am not sure that there are any. Here's a photo of the top and underside. Lots of holes, but once used up by the steering rack, engine mounts etc I am not sure what's left over.

Cheers

Re: Parts Mystery #1

Hi again Beans. I think I managed to answer my own question! I found a pack of old photos from 1994, and going through them found a photo of the coil location. Looks like it goes right there. When faced with an empty engine bay which was stripped around 25 years ago, it is amazing how the smallest t...

Re: Parts Mystery #1

Ah, now that's interesting, Beans. Many thanks. Mine is a 1977 ACG17###-series car - do you think I should put the coil there? Nice fuel filter, BTW ;) Thanks John Coil mount for early cars, but never deleted on the later ones ... Very useful to fit a fuel filter :mrgreen: https://1.bp.blogspot.com/...

Re: Parts Mystery #1

Hi all and thanks again for your ongoing help identifying parts of the TR7. I quite like this game, so here's another round:

Somewhere to the left of the steering column, in the engine bay, there are two threaded rods. Anyone know what they are for?

Many thanks

Re: Parts Mystery #1

I had a moment of clarity today and remembered where the other one was! In a box of Bond Equipe spares, as it happened. So disaster averted.

Thanks

Re: Parts Mystery #1

Hi folks There are two brackets which fit somewhere in the front footwells, one right and one left. I only have one, and equally I am not sure what they are for or if they are strictly necessary. My dusty memory vaguely recalls them to be something to do with the manufacturing process rather than ha...

Re: Triumph TR7 Rear brake pipes

Thanks everyone for the help and advice. In the end I decided to go for the standard set-up, mainly because (a) that's how it left the factory and (b) right now I only had the parts for that. My thinking was to try it as-is, and if it is a pig to bleed then I can always do the T-piece mod later. Got...

Re: Rear brake pipes

Perfect, thanks Bushey. That is super helpful! I should have looked there, as I do sometimes have a look through Kent's blog and I believe he follows mine! All the best John I found this photo after a google. Zooming in reveals rusty brake pipes on a rusty 4 speed. http://irestorationtr7.blogspot.co...

Re: Rear brake pipes

Thanks Hasbeen, really useful. I had been pondering whether to do that modification and I think I will give it a go, if I can find somewhere to mount the T-piece without too much drilling (do you mount it to an existing fixing?) Cheers John No photos, but a suggestion. The stock system runs direct t...

Triumph TR7 Rear brake pipes

Hi folks I have just started fitting new brake pipes to my restoration and it is going ok. However, I don't have any patterns to use as templates for the rears (the set-up from the drums back to the central flexi-hose), so am a bit lost. Would anyone have any photos of how the pipes are installed al...
