Re: Strange squeak

If you decide to drop the gearbox out from underneath, be prepared as it is a considerably heavy unit. Last time I dropped the gearbox I used two trolley jacks, one either end. Rich. I used two trolley jacks too. The car was up on jackstands sitting on top of large chunks of rail sleeper to get it ...

Re: Strange squeak

Not easily. If you removed the slave cylinder (take care not to remove the actuating rod from the clutch fork) you may be able to squirt with a tube discharge onto the release bearing but it would not be easy and you need to make sure it does not contaminate the clutch. There is no way to reach the ...

Re: Hesitation after a corner

Looks flat on the base with no rebate to hold it central on the rim of the dizzy?

Re: Hesitation after a corner

SU dashpots should be filled with engine oil (normal 20/50). This is more viscous and slows/damps the movement of the piston. This is recommended in the manual.

Re: Gearbox tunnel sound deadening - fitting

The longer ones are pretty standard fixings for insulation on HVAC ductwork. They just bend the pins over rather than cut off as it is then clad.

Re: Gearbox tunnel sound deadening - fitting

I can't even recall seeing it on mine but it is sometime since I had the gearbox out. You could cut off the existing pin remains and use insulation stick pins in the same position to hold it in. These are a little long but the pin is trimmed off after fixing. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/62mm-stick-pi...

Re: Starter relay failures

Make sure he relay has EXACTLY the same diagram, there are subtle differences with the incorrectly supplied ones. One thing I did when waiting for a new relay was remove the cap and pinch the contacts to start the car (it will dangle below the glovebox when released). If you do that with the old one...

Re: Starter relay failures

My car had a failed start relay when I bought it (in 2006), started it by means of a screwdriver across the solenoid and starter connections! I replaced it with one from Robsport and it has been fine since. Take care, there have been several reports recently of ones supplied by Rimmers being incorre...

Re: Centre exhaust box.

I think it depends on the system. My 4 pot has a tubular manifold and stainless system (Rimmers I think) with centre and back box and is reasonably rorty (I have even been asked if it is a V8 more than once). It does not have a problem with the tuning or MOT. Never tried it without the centre box bu...

Re: Clutch woes.

I had the clutch stuck on the TR7 for the first time this year, probably because it has not been driven for ages due to the CV19 (had it a lot with an Imp many years ago for some reason). As it is parked on the drive facing the garage I started it in reverse with the clutch down and it broke away wi...

Re: Clutch woes.

Two things spring to mind. One is the reasonably common problem of the clutch fork wearing through the pivot and jamming (or one heard of recently where one of the thrust bearing slipper blocks came out somehow), although I have not personally had these happen. The one I have had happen, which must ...

Re: Brake switch washer position?

Not sure of the answer to your question (can't remember now) but they are known for the bracket bending and hence either stopping them working or making them on full time. I had the latter after doing some work around the pedal area when I must have leant on it somehow, a simple bend back corrected ...

Re: wiper motor

Yes, I think. When I had problems with mine I bought a new one on ebay which was boxed as a LRW110, for a Land Rover IIRC but also listed for the TR7. (Just checked, it was listed as ' Windscreen Wiper Motor Unit Genuine OEM Lucas Land Rover 3 90 110 Defender ', think the description mentioned TR7)....
