Re: Fitting new Bluetooth radio!!

As far as I am aware 7's only had door speakers (in the forward lower corner if you do not have anything currently fitted). I make do with these (5" IIRC) but then I am tone deaf. Others of a more musical bent have fitted fancy slim speakers on the rear bulkhead too. Not sure what they were but...

Re: Oil for engine and gearbox

Classic 20w/50 is available at a lot of places including Halfords and local motor factors. It is often in a cream can and looks green like the old Duckhams Q (if you are old enough to remember that). I think much of it is made by Comma. I recently bought it off ebay as it was cheaper even delivered....

Triumph TR7 Heating Gauge

They generally run between just over 1/4 to just under 1/2 with the standard cooling system and fan. I have an electric fan set to control between those points. What is your cooling system, standard or modified with electric fan etc? Have you got the correct thermostat (the one with the 'foot' on th...

Re: Archive Info

Christopher Smith may be able to help from his extensive records. Might be worth contacting him through FB as more seems to happen there now (Christopher Kenneth SMITH). Have you checked the boot gutter, some had the VIN stamped there but I can't remember which years now.

Re: Starter fault

Did you check that the starter relay was still OK? Some of the modern Chinese stuff does not last long. When I bought my car the relay was not working so I removed the cover and pushed the contacts together with my fingers until I got the replacement. (That was easier than using the PO's method of a...

Re: Starter fault

Did you remove the small connection onto the starter solenoid and look at the wire in the spade terminal. I had an intermittent starter problem some years ago, the relay would click in but sometimes the starter would not turn. I found that the copper wire connection inside the spade was green and co...

Re: Late fuel filler caps

Some talk on this yesterday at the annual meet at Gaydon. Apparently there is a Sherpa fuel cap which is the same as the TR7 (non locking) ones, just has a red dot sticker on it for some reason but it peels off.

Re: Electric fan turn on / off sensor switch issue

I fitted an electric fan with capillary sensor some 10 years ago, can't remember the brand. I just used some sealant around the thin capillary line where it entered the hose and tightened up. Never had a leak since.

Re: Late fuel filler caps

I had a lockable one when I got the car but was concerned about only having one key and the possibility of rain leakage through the lock (not sure it would but kept it greased to fill the hole). Then a chance find on ebay came up with a standard one, seemed a lot for a plastic cap but nowhere near t...

TR7 indicator fault (turn-signal)

The electronic flasher units are much better. Some have 3 connectors and need an additional earth (easy) and some are a straight replacement with only 2 connectors. The work better and flash at a constant rate even when idling. Main flasher unit is above (or normally dangling below) the steering col...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

Basically shows what I described, the heating element on the bimetal strip contact. Sloshing the fuel in cornering will only give momentary power to the unit, not long enough to heat the strip to make contact so stopping the light from flashing. If the level stays low for long enough it will allow t...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

Actually, looking further at the diagram there are connections on the green cable feeding the likes of the wash/wipe switch and stop light switch. It seems to be a common power feed so the double up must be to one of them. Try pulling the green connection from the delay unit and see if that solves y...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

Looks a slight variation on the wiring diagram I have. That does not show the doubled up connections. It shows: Green - G -from Hazard switch Green/orange - GO - to tank unit Light Green/Red - LGR - from the low fuel warning light Black - B - ground By the looks of it the when the low level contact ...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

This listing on US ebay suggests it is the low fuel delay. Certainly looks like it (normally fitted to the top of the instrument cluster under the cowling). https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Smiths-Low-Fuel-Warning-Relay-Thermal-Delay-Switch-Triumph-TR7-TR8-New-1-/223192370154 On the wiring diagram it se...

Re: hello!

Not really.
When is it noisy? Tends to suggest the release bearing on its way.
