Re: Triumph TR7 Small sunroof

Hi Theo I bought the DAF YA 324 from a guy in Breda/Roosendal and brought it back on the ferry from the Hook of Holland to the UK. I loved that truck so much and used it as an amateur radio vehicle. Now I think it is the only YA 324 in the UK, but in a bad state after I sold it. That makes me sad! R...

Re: Alternator fitting

Well, you learn something new ever day. Three bolts out, give it a twist and hey presto it fits. I have learned the art of "clocking" an alternator.

Thanks Edward.

Re: Alternator fitting

Thanks Edward, much appreciated. I'd never come across "clocking" so after your message I had a look on YouTube and now understand it.

I'll give it a go and report back!

Cheers

Alternator fitting

Hi folks, and Happy New Year. I decided to do a trial fit of my new alternator today, while the engine is still on the bench. I am totally baffled about how it fits and left wondering if I have the wrong alternator. Basically, if I fit is as I would expect it to be fitted, the adjustment bracket has...

Re: Weathershields Sunroof fitting - HELP!

Hi Beans

I followed as far as "...Fit the blanking plates (2 screws each) pull the sunroof back and fit the rear rail to the roof."

What are the blanking plates?

Cheers

Re: Triumph TR7 Small sunroof

Thanks Guys @RugbyRef Yep, still at it and too late to stop now! The car is looking really good and, once I get the sunroof and headlining fitted, it's just the engine/box to go in. @Hasbeen Thanks for the info about Butyl. I did manage to get some via ebay, a brand called "Snake Tape" whi...

Triumph TR7 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 Some old dealer fitting instructions and a parts list I found show the rear seal was originally made of "But...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: 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 ...
