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: Window wipers

Hi Phil, I had the same issue except next to nothing happened on 1st speed, very slow on 2nd speed then a marginal improvement with the engine running and water on the screen. :) Cleaning up all the electrical connections including the wiper switch, connector blocks and earth made a big improvement,...

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

Re: Triumph TR8 Engine Rebuild - help warnings!

I guess it just delays the point at which the pressure relief valve opens under operating conditions.......if you've got low oil pressure at low revs when the oil's warm it won't make any difference. From all the RV8 books that I've read, the V8 has a low pressure / high volume oil system and too hi...

Re: Triumph TR8 Engine Rebuild - help warnings!

Real Steel list one on their website. http://www.realsteel.co.uk/section1.pdf Page S1/6. Most of the V8 specialists seem to have an uprated spring listed. "Boosts oil pressure by 10psi etc". I couldn't tell you what my running oil pressure is as I don't have a gauge. I have enough issues w...

Re: Triumph TR7 - Electric fan Positioning

As per S & S recommendations when I bought their conversion kit back in the day, my electric fan is fitted on the front of the radiator, there's not much room on the other side anyway. Never had a problem with it there. It only comes on in stop / start traffic and there's no mistaking when it cu...

I've done that in the past with gardening wire, exhaust paste and patches of Diet Coke tin. :D
