TR7 - The public like them.

I suffered an injury to the back of the calf of my right leg, while clearing the spot I've had a new 12m x 6 m shed built. 3 roller doored bays with a 3m x 6m work area, it is the shed I've wanted for about 30 years. I have been visiting the local doctors surgery to have the injury dressed for about...

Re: Float chamber vent hose connection TR7-fi

Sorry roger, my 4.6l has not had a charcoal canister in my ownership. Probably removes by the shop that fitted the 4.6. Early in my ownership of the 7, I found the charcoal canister over half full of a mixture of oil & petrol. I chucked it out. The tank breather is plumbed to a carb, the engine ...

Re: Float chamber vent hose connection TR7-fi

Any oil will be coming from the engine breather from your camshaft cover, which should be plumbed to your charcoal canister, & then to your inlet manifold.

On my 4.6L injected V8 it is plumbed direct from the rocker cover to the inlet throttle body.

Re: What's the thinking on this?

I test drove one of the Bullet, [V8 MX5] about 6 years ago, when I wanted to retire the TR7 & 8 from daily driver duties. They weren't bad at all, better than most on the market, including the Z3 & 4 BMW but I found the Honda S2000 the best available today. Of course I then decided the mint ...

Re: MGF 15" wheels

Re: TR7 Fuel Gauge & Sender

The first time I filled the tank on my 7, after building it from 2 wrecks, the fuel gauge read only 3/4 when the tank was filled up the filler neck. When checked I found the float had something like 15 to 20% of its capacity full of petrol. Knowing that wood swells when wet with water, I drilled a s...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

Hi A of E. I have a stock 7, & a 4.6L 8, both with a nicely set up stock steering rack. I am now 80 years of age, & do not find the steering too heavy. In fact I find if the rack & strut tops are well lubricated the steering is just perfect for high speed motoring, & adequate for a h...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

I had a problem with the fuse board early on. Some fuses were not passing current even though the contacts on the board were clean & bright as were the fuses, which tested good. I sprayed the board contacts with contact cleaner, & replaced the fuses. All working, well for about 8 months, whe...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

What is on your key ring? My daughter had this problem with a Honda Prelude. She was running an architectural office. They had a large number of blueprint safes, each with a key. She had about 15 of these, the office keys, car keys, & home keys all on a large key ring. The Prelude started cuttin...

Re: Catastrophe!

Yes Beans, it has been less than nice, but this is not unusual, Oz can be a tough place. We had bushfires in the area first, before they moved south. It is mostly the very large national parks with thousands of acres that are locked up & very overgrown with scrub where the fires are starting. We...

Re: Catastrophe!

Unfortunately we had a real catastrophe here today. That ex greenhouse shed,originally a greenhouse recovered with hypalon material that has been sheltering some of my cars for about 17 years was damaged, worse, it damaged the TR8. We had a small thunderstorm with 31mm of rain this afternoon. During...

Re: Catastrophe!

Mine sprayed me with coolant from the ventilation outlets the first time I took it for a run, & ran the revs up over 4000. In our climate air is essential, but a heater is not, so I simply bypassed the heater, running the coolant from the back of the head direct to the water pump. The joys of a ...

Re: Catastrophe!

I have been driving the 7 more often since the re gassing of the air. My son convinced me there is not much use being the richest man in the cemetery, & I extended that to it was not much use being the owner of the most beautiful 7 in the cemetery. I took it for a run to a new city & shoppin...
