Re: paint for Tr7 help please

To my understanding thermoplastic acrylic was the type of paint that was used. I believe this is resin based and different to cellulose. supercass

Re: Identify this radio

Hi, I believe it is a Radiomobile pushbutton medium / long wave. It has been badged with a Triumph emblem before supply to B.L. Can't quite see on your pic but on some of their radios the brand was on a small piece of plastic that slotted into a small recess. The one in the video is slightly differe...

Re: Fuel pump service kit.

Thanks for your reply saabfast. Wouldn't a holed / damaged diaphragm deliver lots of fuel at low pressure rather than a smaller amount of fuel at high pressure. The fuel pump is the original one and with ethanol fuel it must be in need of a service. Any one got a pic of a disassembled one? supercass

Fuel pump service kit.

I have a service kit for my original fuel pump purchased from a specialist. My car is over fuelling and I am pretty certain the fuel pump diaphragm is past the sell by date. I thought this would be a nice easy job and that I could do it with the pump in situ. I have got the section off containing th...

Re: Wanted - headlight connector

Maximum current of 10 amps for the weatherproof one though. Assuming it operates both headlights may not leave much of a safety margin.

Re: New fog lights

My understanding is that whilst they would (probably) pass an MOT they are not legal.

More reliable than a modern?

Just taking stock of my disastrous association with a Citroen 1.6 Sensodrive which has done a low annual mileage now has a burnt out valve and needs a new engine and has been sold basically for scrap value. Loss of confidence in the car reduced the enthusiasm to argue about the value. In about the s...

BMH and TR7 panel manufacture.

Puzzled how Classic Car Weekly (18/07/2018) arrive at a figure of 2000 TR7's. Surely BMH exported panels. On line resources suggest there are around 3k TR7's remaining as taxed or SORN in the U.K. However I understand that 85% of production was exported so assuming similar conditions that would leav...

Re: Aley Roll Bar Removal?

I have always failed to see the cosmetic attraction of an after market roll bar. Cosmetic detraction yes. Attraction no.

Re: Replacing DHC glass felt channel.

Yes, I recall replacing one of mine some years ago and it was just a friction fit. Don't recall there being a rivet there.

Re: TR7 Tyre Pressure Label in Glovebox

185/70/13's were fitted to the alloys. I have never seen an updated factory sticker and AFAIK they were not a statutory requirement in the U.K. so I just assumed they were never fitted and were never made as factory. My car did not have a sticker when new. When you consider (I stand to be corrected)...

I know these headlights come in for a lot of criticism but with the odd spray of silicone fluid mine have never given any problems in 37 years! supercass

Re: Auction prices.

I think though that the prices actually achieved at auction are perhaps more meaningful. The problem is that if you look at the for sale ads one sellers idea of "mint" is quite different from another. To some people it is quite acceptable to describe a car that is welded like a patchwork q...

Auction prices.

Spent a few moments glancing through a classic car newspaper when doing the shopping. Looking at recent auction results I was surprised to see a cond. 2 convertible had sold for more than £7.8k and a condition 2+ (presumably hardtop) for over £8k. I must have been somewhere else and missed this rapi...
