Re: Timing adjust

Also make sure that the sensor is aligned/centered correctly. it should be in line with any one of the distributor cap contacts when the motor is at TDC, or at least very close.

Re: Speedo not working

You should pull the speedo end of the cable and see if it is turning when you drive the car. If it is turning pinch the end of the cable as it turns to make sure that it is not slipping. The O2 sensor will stay on till you reset the trip counter under the hood or disconnect the wires from the counte...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

Bridging the battery to the switch by passes the ignition switch and associated wiring. Have you checked the clamp on connection on the positive battery cable? It should be fairly close to the positive battery terminal end of the cable. It will have several brown wires and is the source for almost a...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

If that is the case it could be the actual ignition switch. Fortunately, if you have a UK spec TR7, the switch is the same as a Spitfire so it is readily available and inexpensive. The US type is almost impossible to find and expensive when you do. It can be changed out fairly easily by removing the...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

If the voltage/battery had dropped low enough to not allow the ignition to function it would not have enough power to energize the starter.

Have you tried running a direct power wire from the battery to the coil yet?

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

Stag/TR8 Ignition switches usually fail on the starter engage portion of the switch. You could try moving the key slightly next time it cuts out before the car stops moving. Alternative you could run a hot wire from the battery to the coil and see if it stays running. Be careful though as if the swi...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

I have had similar experiences with a points type ignition when the condensor was faulty.

Coils can also act in this manner.

Basically they work cold but cut out after they warm up. Once they stop they cool off and start the cycle over again.

Re: Alternator fitting

It is normal for a replacement alternator to need to be "Clocked". This is a process where you undo the bolts holding the the front and rear halves together and then rotating the front face to a new position. DO NOT separate the two halves or you will need to reassemble the brushes. Edward...

Re: Fuel Tank Filler Tube - RKC3533S

I have looked all over and I can't figure out where I put the filler tube "For safe keeping". I'll keep an eye pout for it but for now it is lost in the barn.

Sorry

Re: It lives! Sort of.

Later cars have the delay unit mounted on the back of the instrument pod. I believe that you are correct about your car's being mounted on the bulkhead.

Re: Radio replacement

It is much easier just to install one of the new HD radios with a USB port and no CD player. They are much shorter. You will still need to do minor trimming to fit the DIN Sleeve but hat is pretty easy.
