Re: What have i done !!!!

The easiest way to remove a steering wheel is. 1/. Get a willing helper, a brass drift & a hammer, or plastic faced hammer. 2/. Undo the nut, & screw it to the top of the shaft. Set it up exactly level with the top of the thread. 3/.Sit in the seat, & apply upward pressure on the wheel. ...

Re: POWER STEERING

You are so right about higher caster angles accentuating any wheel wobble Stag. When I first started driving the Formula 1 Brabham Repco it had a terrible wheel wobble, shaking the whole nose of the car, particularly under brakes. It was so bad that one knowledgeable spectator could see it from 75 y...

Re: Fuel pump service kit.

The fuel is actually pumped by the spring in the pump. The spring is compressed by the leaver riding on the cam lobe. The more the spring is compressed the higher the pressure produced by the pump. Our SUs should not be asked to handle above 2.0PSI. The replacement pumps supplied in Oz come with a c...

Re: POWER STEERING

Be careful what you do with your TR7 steering. The most dangerous thing about my Honda S2000 is the too light, too quick steering. When I was a young bloke, racing Formula 1 & Formula 2 open wheelers, & had a steering suspension & brake shop. I did a fair bit of suspension tuning for oth...

Re: Cracks

God I'm glad I live in Oz, & in the northern half of Oz at that.

I reckon you people restoring cars in Europe & the northern half of north America are heroes. You have my respect & admiration.

Re: Cracks

According to my 1977 workshop manual, the bolts that hold the radius rods & trailing arms to their brackets are supposed to have THICK washers under both head & nut. This is obviously to spread the load over the whole bracket, rather than just the bolt hole in the bracket. If you get a mild ...

Re: New Door Seals

I got a set of those from Greg Tunstall in Brisbane.

Yes they fit perfectly.

I expect to have enough money to buy food again by next month.

Re: 2lt Service

You'll be back. How could you not having experienced driving nirvana, with sports car weather all year. I had a Dutch man working for me many years ago. His wife got so homesick he had to take her home. Home wasn't as great as she remembered & they were back with in a year. See you soon. Hasbeen

Re: TR7 Interior mirror

Phil, please tell me what a camera in a rear view mirror would be able to see that I can't see myself, looking in the rear view mirror? Or is it a rear mounted camera that screens it's pictures in the mirror? My ladies last 3 cars have had reversing cameras, & I don't find them much use. They de...

Merry Christmas.

It's about that time to wish you all a very merry Christmas, & a happy & prosperous new year. Not so many of us left these days with a TR7 sized place in our lives. However for any of the old gang still lurking, a merry Christmas to you too, & my commiserations that you are no longer sev...

Re: New front Brakes Wilwood?? TR7V8

I have Volvo 4 pot on the front of the 8 complete with discs.

The back has the single pot system that came with the Nissan Skyline limited slip dif. Surprisingly with this mix of components they balance perfectly, & needed no attention to the distribution valve.

Re: More reliable than a modern?

I agree, once I had put my neglected 7 on the road it was remarkably reliable. It is not all new cars, but perhaps a French/German thing. My ladies last private car, a Mazda 2 did 175,000 kilometres using only consumables. Her company supplied Peugeot 2006 felt like it spent half it's life at the de...

Re: oil pressure

I gave up using oil pressure as a warning of impending doom many years ago. I was driving a mates Lotus 20 formula junior, with a Cosworth 105E Ford Anglia engine. It had all the right stuff for the day, forged crank rods & pistons etc. When it suddenly lost power about half a kilometre from the...

Re: Standard uk steering wheel.

I have the original 14" wheel in the 7, & a flash looking 13" in the 8. The increase in effort when parked or just moving with the 13" wheel is much greater than you would expect, considering everything on the 8 is in mint condition, & she was done after the 7.

Re: New owner (TR7 V8 FHC URW450X)

Hi Paule, I'll add a welcome to the fold from Oz. If your window has come out of the frame, it is a job for insertion rubber, to do as traditional. I did one in the 8 about 10 years back, & still remember it with horror. I did it with the winder mechanism in the door, after much swearing putting...
