Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

My guess would be a faulty coil.
I’ve had a similar problem with my Spitfire. It started fine, but after a short drive the motor stopped, like no ignition (no sparks). After cooling down it started fine again. Changing the coil cured the problem.

Re: New model car TR7 DHC 1:18

My blue 7 arrived today.
Great model just like the pictures on the site. Can't open doors, as expected.
Panel gaps are perfect :lol:

Re: Head Honcho (Cylinder Head removal tool)

I was thinking to remove the welded nuts, and use a metal strip with threaded holes instead. Thick bolts will bent less, so are better to start with. After the studs are level with the head I can use a different strip with smaller bolts, that will go through the head. I want to screw a bush on the b...

Re: Cruise light metal electric pins

I've used little self tapping screws to fix them.

You can use 2 relays and 4 fuses. Just put the fuses before each light.

Re: What went wrong?

I was present at the brake test. They do only MOT, and don't fix the cars. The markings on the backplate are from my screwdriver :oops: I've tried to remove the drum at the roadside. Couldn't get it off, but after releasing the adjustment I could at least turn the wheel, and I tried to get home. At ...

Re: What went wrong?

I didn't have to lever the drum off. I could pull it off, after releasing the automatic adjustment. No force needed. The brake felt a little warm, certainly not hot. I expect all the steel for brake shoes is soft metal. None would use quality, hard steel. That leaves only the Gremlin theory. Hope I ...

Straightened the retaining lip. The rear plate seems to be fine. https://myalbum.com/photo/wfC9Ily1QwcX/360.jpg https://myalbum.com/photo/yn0Lz6mMcoBW/360.jpg What about the automatic adjustment? The first time I push the brake pedal after working on the brakes, I hear the adjustments working. It ha...

Re: What went wrong?

When overhauling cylinders of any sort, I lubricate the metal cylinders and rubber seals with red rubber grease (which sometimes comes with rebuild kits but can be bought separately). I don't rely on the brake fluid to do the lubrication. This also prevents the cylinder bore outside the piston trav...

No they didn't work on the car, no tools are used at the Dutch MOT it's only a test of functionality.
