Re: Oxygen-Sensor TR7 FI-engine

I have used Bosch part number 11027 in the past with success. They are described as "Universal" fit. They looked like what was in the car with the exception of the short lead wire.

They are available from Amazon.

Re: TR8 efi 1980 and TR7 TR8 a/c under bonnet (hood) labels

Do you still have any of these and would you be willing to ship to the USA?

Late night surprise

So there I was fast asleep at 2:30 in the morning when I awoke to a noise. I walked through the house and soon realized that it was coming from one of the TR7 so, in my bathrobe, I ventured out into the pouring rain to discover that the 1976 TR7 DHC's horn was blowing all on its own. I quickly disco...

DPO again

The wife and I went to drive to the grocery store the other night in the 80 DHC but sadly when I turned on the headlights we got illumination but no rotation. I went out to day to look at the car to see if I could figure out what had happened. In short order I found that the one of the wires to the ...

Re: Door Lock Jammed

This is also caused by the anti-burst latch needing lubrication. You just need to shoot some oil into the slot high and low. I usually oil the door mechanism at the same time.

Try pulling the door switch and cleaning the contacts.

Re: Wiper blade problem

You might have the wrong size pin. There are several different ones.

The retaining clip might need to be re-bent to hold properly.

Re: Smell of fuel

I would check the small rubber hose that is part of the fuel venting system. On my cars it usually was rotted right at the connection to the filler neck. The other end connects to the filter you will find in the same area. You can access it from the odd shaped panel inside the boot on the right side...

Re: Front suspension ball joint boots

I use a long bar to lever the arm down far enough to get the stud out of the lower strut. Not too bad with the front jacked up you can place a foot on the bar and move the suspension strut with you hand. It's a lot easier than removing the sway bar.

Re: cooling problems AC, FI-engine and other issues

I had a wheel wobble problem recently. Tires are new and double checked on the balance. A new steering rack removed the problem. The gear/rack was worn in the straight ahead position enough to allow the rack to osculate. Adjusting the tie-rod ends to move the rack to one side or the other changed wh...

Re: cooling problems AC, FI-engine and other issues

The heater control valve can be replaced by one that fits a Volvo. Unfortunately that part seems to be discontinued as well. The matrix is different from the non-AC unit. No one has found a substitute that I know of. Fortunately they do not often fail. You should back-flush it with low pressure wate...

Re: Inlet Manifold

I always use a swivel socket on a 6" extension. A tight fit but it works.

Re: Bonnet wobbles

I had a similar problem even with new rubbers. It turned out that arch on the rear of the bonnet had been flatten out. A block of wood under the center of the rear edge and a gentle push on both corners soon fixed it.

Re: tuning US ZS carbs...dam things.

The adjustment should always be able to turn anti-clockwise as that is how the needle is removed for replacement. Turning it clock-wise can bring the needle all the way up where it will jam against the adjustment screw. If it is jammed you can remove the top of the carb and take the piston assembly ...

Re: Radiator temp sensor

That sensors is for the A/C condenser fans. It has power one one side and a wire that leads down to the area in front of the radiator. You could use it as a switch for you engine radiator fan but the temp range is a bit high. I think that it kicks in at about 200/210 degrees. Edward Hamer Petaluma CA
