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

John

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...

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Hi everyone Here's an update on the "location of the fuel delay relay debate". I was at Robsport today and they had a very rusty yellow FHC parked up (interestingly, with a very similar registration/licence plate number to mine, and the same year). A cursory peek under the bonnet and I fou...

Quality Issues

Hi folks As some may know I am restoring a '77 Speke-built FHC and enjoying it very much. I come across many items in the rebuild which make me think "why did they build it like that?". However there's nothing really so far which makes me shudder. I have been reading David Knowles' book wh...

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Hi Olivier, many thanks for the info. My car is right hand drive, so the washer pump is on the passenger/left hand side (as a matter of fact it is already fitted!). So I don't think the washer pump goes in the area highlighted in my photos.

But thanks for the contribution!

All the best

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Hi folks I trawled through my photos and managed to find a couple of the "thing" and its positioning. One is a really old photo and not very good quality, the other shows it was still there when I primed the engine bay some years later (where it disappeared to I have no idea!). I have high...
