Re: Another wiring question

Item shown on Rimmer Bros website Back in the 80's I replaced the carpets which stopped the headlight pods from lifting entirely. Why? This small circuit breaker had fallen from the loom and lodged behind the new carpet in the passenger footwell. It was bare friction fit to the wires around the fus...

Re: Another wiring question

In my DHC the white black wire for the heated rear window ran to a blanked off connector block behind the switch panel. (Basically factory sticky tape wrapped around it) It then ran to the back of the cockpit, (again more tape) as there's no hrw on a DHC It was useful. When converting to V8 I used i...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

Could be a poor connection or cracked wire that's just about ok until the car warms up and conductivity is lost?

I've lost count of the number of connector blocks, spade connections and earthing points on my 40 year old wedge that have been coated with green grunge or worn loose.

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

Hi, When the electronic OPUS distributor on my 7V8 died whilst driving, the loss of power was immediately accompanied by the rev counter dying, though still in gear. A common issue with the Opus. Did your rev counter do the same? Is your distributor on the original points or electronic? I had the ig...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

Hi Rod
My 7V8 is taxed all year round in the U.K. It only goes out on dry saltless roads in the winter and dry ones in the summer.

Re: Latest trend in pop-up headlights?

Ironic that many wedge owners have had issues making their lights lift properly, and along comes a product so they don't.

And that's if it's compatible.........

HRW Relay? (TR7 Heated Rear Window)

I didn't think there was a relay fitted to the HRW part of the loom when I fitted an accessory to it on my DHC years ago. (The DHC doesn't have a HRW but is wired for it, just fit the dashboard switch) The 1980 Euro wiring diagram I have backs this up. If you want to PM me with your email address I ...

Re: Dead in the garage.....

I had no electrical issues with the wedge until the day after the recent Classics on the Croxley Green / Carters steam fair. I parked up in the garage straight afterwards, left it overnight and the starter wouldn't turn over, no solenoid click the next morning. The headlight lift motors and headlamp...

Re: Engine + Gearbox Weight?

If you squint through almost closed eyes, F8b almost passes as P5b, one of the earliest applications of the Rover V8 in the U.K.

Or, the engine from a Suzuki Alto. http://www.suzukituning.com/SuzukiTunin ... Tuning.htm :D
