Re: Clutch woes.

I haven't had to bleed the hydraulic clutch system yet when rebuilding it. I've filled the reservoir in the master, left it overnight and any air has risen up the pipe and out through the top. Top up the reservoir again, the pedal is firm, drive a few miles and all is well. I was expecting to crawl ...

Re: Clutch woes.

Over 30 years ago the pivot pin wore a hole in my clutch fork at around 65,000 miles IIRC. The pedal went down to the floor with no resistance, came back up and stuck solid. Luckily it happened just as I left my driveway. It prompted the V8 conversion as I had to remove the engine and gearbox out an...

Re: Fitting an immobilizer.

When 2.0L wedges were current they were insurance group 7. Exotic stuff like Ferraris and Porsches were only group 8 or 9! I still have a complete set of TR8 badges for my 7V8. I never got round to fitting them as I thought the 3.5 litre badges in 1990 would draw the wrong kind of attention. Likewis...

Re: airhose to airflow-meter (TR7-fi)

Hi Roger, If you're suffering from inconsistent rpm at idle it may be due to oil residue collecting in the throttle body around the butterfly valve. I had to clean out the throttle body in my Mk3 Golf Gti every 12 months, otherwise the accumulated residue shut off the airflow around the valve at idle.

Re: Tartan Upholstery

That tartan reminds me of a 1984 Manta GTE back in the day.

Re: Suspension turret strengtheners ?

Yes - at 19 years old mine required new metal in the turrets because of them.

Re: Suspension turret strengtheners ?

I have to raise the top under a bridge to avoid getting soaked if caught out in the rain. It takes forever. Stay above 30mph and the rain goes straight over the top. :D My manual MX5 hood in comparison can be raised in 5 seconds from the driver's seat. I recently saw a dry state TR8 being restored i...

Re: Suspension turret strengtheners ?

As if there weren't enough rust traps in the original TR7 design, they added some extra ones? :D

Re: What's the thinking on this?

My daily driver is one of the first Mk3 2L MX5's. It's done 105k miles, is 14 years old, we've had it 8 years and notched up 65k. It's been incredibly reliable, inexpensive to run and great fun. Good MX5's can be great value. The Mk2's front chassis rails can succumb to terminal rust and cars are be...

TR7 Cruise / Marker Lights and Covers TR8

I had a look at this website. I definitely need to get out more........ http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1989/1796/schedule/7/made as I wondered if you could have amber rear cruise lights that flash with the rear indicators. I have flashing amber at the front - I reckon they're a must have. I have...

Re: Triumph TR7 Black Cord seat covers

If you've not become an addict already, a weekly trawl on eBay may find some out there........ different sellers often describe parts differently or misspell them. Some 42 year old black cord seats might be in someone's attic. I picked up a set of blue check seats on eBay a few years ago, it was wel...
