Re: Triumph TR7 boot / trunk lock

Push the lock button in to the housing until it stops. Then you will see two little metal pieces sticking into the sides of the white plastic button. Pry those off with a little screw driver. The button will then pop out when released.

Re: TR7 Door Seals

I'm not sure I'm getting this right. Tony has invested his time and his money to have original style FHC seals made, which are not available. Yet people keep trying to push people towards the seals in Canada that neither look original or fit that well. If you like the seals in Canada, great buy them...

Re: Removing a TR7 stuck brake drum

I would think you need to determine what is stuck on the drum that's keeping it in place. Is it stuck to the axle? Or, is it stuck to the shoes? If it's stuck the axle, a little heat on the axle flange area of the drum and a couple of good smacks with your favorite hammer is in order. If it's stuck ...

Re: Differential bearings

I'm a real bad guesser, but, I'll guess you have the rear end that came on a 5 speed car.

Re: 5 speed (LT77) gearbox question.......

In my experience, the gear oil leaks out of the shifter/selector shaft and runs down the case and turns the gear box rubber mount to a sort of mushy kind of thing. The seal for the selector shaft is just an o-ring. A little machining and a press in oil seal with a lip could be installed to stop the ...

Re: 5 speed (LT77) gearbox question.......

Well, since you have the rear cover off. You might consider getting a real oil seal installed in the rear case for the shifter shaft. And thread inserts for the stripped bolt holes. All simple things to do with the case off and some simple machining.

Re: 5 speed (LT77) gearbox question.......

Do you own a 1/2 inch drill? If so attach the drill to the input shaft and put the trans in gear. Remove the oil galley plug and start the drill. You should have a steady stream of oil coming out the oil galley, if you are turning the drill in the right direction. Tractors and lathes might be a litt...

Re: 5 speed (LT77) gearbox question.......

Yes, that pretty much what you need to do. I would also check to make sure the oil pump is pumping fluid before I installed the trans in the car.

Re: Saturn alternator conversion question

The one wire or two or three depends on what plug you buy to go to the alternator. The one wire loses the ignition light. Three wire plug keep the sense wire, the light wire and the field wire. If you have the one wire plug there are parts in that plug to eliminate the other two wires. The Saturn al...

Re: Unwiring

I never could find one of those tools to fit my connectors. So, I made my own. I re-used old plastic connectors quite often. Generally replacing all the ones in the engine compartment with connectors I remove from other parts of the harness that are exposed to less light and heat. Never had a proble...

Re: floor bung

Both types are as original, depending on the year of your car. The flat plate was used on cars from 1979 down. The paint can type were used later. 1980 on up. Both types were sealed with seam sealer. The flat plate one is sealed better as the sealing surface is larger, the plate is stronger and fits...

Ah, you do know you can buy a new reproduction correct positive battery cable from the Roadster Factory? The only reason I mention this, is your cable is toast. I'm sure it will leave you stranded at some point soon, as it looks like you have some internal corrosion going on. In the process of faili...

There was no good reason to keep the bulkhead or firewall attached to the floor pan. Also, I wanted to remove the largest section I could in one piece. The bulkhead attached to the floor pan/front end would not allow it to be removed and installed in one piece. Also, bulkhead keeps the body in align...
