Re: Hesitation after a corner

interesting! I looks like a Sprint distributor to me with Lumenition magnetronic system fitted, but with a different cap and leads from original (there are many things like this available on the internet, and many work well). Kind regards Simon[/color] So the Ambassador cap theory sounds reasonable...

Re: Hesitation after a corner

Most likely an Ambassador cap, they are often used by the Dolomite boys and are sold as an option to give a side entry plug-in type cap but they are higher than the usual Sprint cap. They have two screws to attach them normally but you can take the screws out and the usual spring clips will work. Th...

Re: Hesitation after a corner

Think you are on the SU carbs, what oil is in the dashpots? If the pistons are lifting too quickly that can cause hesitation.

Re: Hesitation after a corner

What electric pump are you using? There are all sorts out there that give too high a pressure for SU carbs.

You can generally reach it without needing to do that, it sort of sticks down on that corner.

Re: TR7 Hazard Flasher Relay Location

I have usually seen them clipped on the corner of the fuse box mounting, access is from underneath and not too difficult. Easier to see here with the dash removed

Re: Another body repair question....

Had to get the bodyshop to do both sides on my car after I bought it some years ago, this is what it looked like with the bottom of the wing cut out.
They fitted the readily available repair panels and the finished result looks good and you can see the before picture as well..

Re: Clutch woes.

When a clutch plate is stuck to the flywheel it feels normal but you just can't get gears with the engine running, so nothing at all like the symptoms described.
Be worth taking the slave off just to check but the problem sounds like it is going to require the gearbox off.

Re: where does this go?

I think that is the little extension piece that the dash top plastic cover fixes to. The open end has a screw into the top of the main dash so sticks out forwards with the speed nut end. A small countersunk screw then goes up into the speed nut to fix the dash top. I will try to add a picture.

On moderns maybe, but they were certainly not fitted on our 40 year old cars.

Re: Brake fluid for Triumph TR7

I bought one of those ones powered off an airline that sucks the fluid through, seemed to do a pretty good job for me after a new clutch slave cylinder was fitted.

Re: Triumph TR7 - Electric fan Positioning

Put my 14" fan on the back of the rad, loads of room to the engine and controlled by a Revotec unit in the top hose.
