Re: 16" MG TF Alloys

I am struggling with posting photos, too. Any ideas, anyone?

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Hi everyone Here's an update on the "location of the fuel delay relay debate". I was at Robsport today and they had a very rusty yellow FHC parked up (interestingly, with a very similar registration/licence plate number to mine, and the same year). A cursory peek under the bonnet and I fou...

Quality Issues

Hi folks As some may know I am restoring a '77 Speke-built FHC and enjoying it very much. I come across many items in the rebuild which make me think "why did they build it like that?". However there's nothing really so far which makes me shudder. I have been reading David Knowles' book wh...

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Hi Olivier, many thanks for the info. My car is right hand drive, so the washer pump is on the passenger/left hand side (as a matter of fact it is already fitted!). So I don't think the washer pump goes in the area highlighted in my photos.

But thanks for the contribution!

All the best

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Hi folks I trawled through my photos and managed to find a couple of the "thing" and its positioning. One is a really old photo and not very good quality, the other shows it was still there when I primed the engine bay some years later (where it disappeared to I have no idea!). I have high...

That's on the opposite side and already fitted :)

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Well, I am sure you're both right. I forgot to check today as I was too busy trying to get the headlamp lift motors to work! The R/H one goes up when it should be down, and down when it should be up; and the L/H one doesn't do much at all, really. RE the fuel delay unit, I'll check again. But here's...

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Ha! On mine it certainly goes in the engine bay, but perhaps I should follow suit and put it somewhere novel. I'm thinking attached to a bit of Dexion racking under the rear parcel shelf? :P In all seriousness, I will certainly double check that I haven't made the wrong assumption about it being in ...

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Russ, thanks so much for taking the trouble to explain that, and for illustrating with photos. The low fuel delay unit you picture is exactly what I remember, and I really wish I could locate it in my shed! It must be the only part which has gone missing in 20+ years of storage and of course it is t...

Re: It lives! Sort of.

I am a bit confused again. Easily done with me! Lots of threads talk about a voltage stabiliser which smooths out the spikes in the 12v supply to the dash, and supplies 10v. It looks exactly like the fuel low delay unit, UKC7096, according to the photos. However it strikes me that both would appear ...

It lives! Sort of.

Hi folks Over the last few weekends I have been re-installing the wiring loom and connecting everything up. That I didn't label anything when I took the loom out over 20 years ago hasn't helped, but I believe I have done a good job getting everything back in and retro-labelling using the circuit dia...

Re: Cracks

Hi there. I'm really not an expert but I did have to repair this area on my 2L TR7, due to rust in the bulkhead. On removal of the bulkhead section the rear trailing arms were shot. Others on here will have a better idea, but the rear trailing arm mounts underneath the car are welded to the exterior...

Re: Parts Mystery #1

Firstly, just in case I wouldn't throw anything away, certainly at this point. Secondly, Theo should write a book. I don't think any one has the photo graphic and personal experience of a top shelf restoration of a TR7 that he has. Ha, that's funny. We should do a TV show called "Ask Theo"...
