Re: POWER STEERING

I use a Corsa electric unit in my Lexus V8 7 with a S&S quick rack and it has worked fine for 5 years plus now. I seriously wouldn't consider building a 7/8 without now! I already have two more units to fit the convertible's in the pipeline.

Re: For UK owners what do you think ??? Proposed Changes to exemption of vehicles from MOT

If only life was so simple! Presented my forms at the Post Office this morning but they didn't know anything about it or what to do with them, I left them with it and said I would call in after lunch and after they had contacted the help line. Second visit, the help line had told them that the car w...

Re: Tax free motoring

It may be worth your while obtaining a heritage certificate which certifies your cars build date, in the absence of this they go by the date of first registration for when it qualify's for "free motoring". In my case three of my 7's were built the previous year to their registration date a...

Re: Wheel and tyre size options

Running 205/50/15 and 205/45/15 on my two 8's, that is on MGF rims, the 50's needed very slight relieving of the front lower inner wing to avoid rubbing and that is using 5mm wheel spacers all round.

Re: Ebay body spit

It "should" be fine with the doors and screen left in situ, although leaving the doors on probably isn't a good idea as they are easy to remove and doing so eliminates the risk of damaging them when working on the car and also makes working on/tidying up the interior far easier. Welding is...

Re: For UK owners what do you think ??? Proposed Changes to exemption of vehicles from MOT

TR7 V8's "shouldn't" be a problem, under the 30 year rule which states that if a modification was reasonably common within 10 years of the end of the model line then it "should" fall within the rules for MoT exemption, and there were plenty of TR7 V8's around by 1991/2. A lot of ...

Re: For UK owners what do you think ??? Proposed Changes to exemption of vehicles from MOT

My understanding of it after a fair bit of research is that under the new, to be implemented rules are that if it qualifies as "substantially modified" and is 40 years or older then it will still require an MoT but will qualify for zero excise duty. Whereas currently it has to be a a vehic...

Re: Uploading photos

If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extension...

Re: For UK owners what do you think ??? Proposed Changes to exemption of vehicles from MOT

It is kinda up in the air at the moment as I doubt anyone knows what exactly the final draft will look like, although it certainly doesn't hurt to start to fight our corner asap. My reading of the 'Q' plate allocation is that it hasn't changed from being based on the eight point system that has been...

Re: New sun visors

I put the all black new ones on mine, well the one that's finished, and I don't have a problem with them. They are 100% better in looks than the dross ones they replaced!

Re: Anti-dive Kit bush problem?

I just used the "saddle clamp" that came off the standard mounting setup, I assume yours were missing? It fits between the cross-member and the bar mounts and has a recess for the bush to sit in. Mine do still bulge a lot and were buggers to get on, but that is with an uprated AR bar which...

Re: 16" MG TF Alloys

For what it's worth it seems to depend on individual cars in my case. On 15" MGF wheels one of mine rubbed on a front bottom arch on 205/45 tyres before I modified it a bit, on another I run 205/50's with no problems. The funny part is that the 205/50 one used to rub very slightly with the 14&q...

Re: Headlamp

If the the above remedies fail check the block connectors that sit on top of the heater assembly underneath the middle of the dash..... a couple of hours here fixed mine plus a few other electrical niggles.
