Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

I had a problem with the fuse board early on. Some fuses were not passing current even though the contacts on the board were clean & bright as were the fuses, which tested good. I sprayed the board contacts with contact cleaner, & replaced the fuses. All working, well for about 8 months, whe...

Re: Not about a TR7 But Help required STAG

What is on your key ring? My daughter had this problem with a Honda Prelude. She was running an architectural office. They had a large number of blueprint safes, each with a key. She had about 15 of these, the office keys, car keys, & home keys all on a large key ring. The Prelude started cuttin...

Re: Catastrophe!

Yes Beans, it has been less than nice, but this is not unusual, Oz can be a tough place. We had bushfires in the area first, before they moved south. It is mostly the very large national parks with thousands of acres that are locked up & very overgrown with scrub where the fires are starting. We...

Re: Catastrophe!

Unfortunately we had a real catastrophe here today. That ex greenhouse shed,originally a greenhouse recovered with hypalon material that has been sheltering some of my cars for about 17 years was damaged, worse, it damaged the TR8. We had a small thunderstorm with 31mm of rain this afternoon. During...

Re: Catastrophe!

Mine sprayed me with coolant from the ventilation outlets the first time I took it for a run, & ran the revs up over 4000. In our climate air is essential, but a heater is not, so I simply bypassed the heater, running the coolant from the back of the head direct to the water pump. The joys of a ...

Re: Catastrophe!

I have been driving the 7 more often since the re gassing of the air. My son convinced me there is not much use being the richest man in the cemetery, & I extended that to it was not much use being the owner of the most beautiful 7 in the cemetery. I took it for a run to a new city & shoppin...

Re: Christmas Greetings

After the worst drought in living memory, it was drier in 1902, we got 40mm of rain in less than an hour on Christmas eve night. Nothing could have been a better Christmas present. I couldn't have had a happier Christmas. I sure hope all triumph lovers had one just as happy. Unfortunately it took ou...

Re: Triumph TR7 Small sunroof

Butyl is a synthetic rubber. Some of these tapes are now being used fir windscreen instillation. There are quite a few different ones in tape form, some reinforced & others not. My windscreen was installed with one of them, sorry no idea which, about 10 years ago, & it is still fine in our s...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

Hi toranarodTR7, & welcome back. Yes things have changed. I don't think many of us are still using 7s as daily drivers, so no where near as many miles finding little faults, those who still have them don't use them as much, & many have moved on. I made the mistake of a full bare metal paint ...

Re: Catastrophe!

Horrible drive into town today, [26Km] in 38 C heat. The air coming in the ventilation system was hotter than the ambient temperature, but I haven't looked for a reason. My trusty auto electrician pressure tested the system, & found no leaks in an hour of holding pressure. Regassed I drove home ...

Catastrophe!

Haven't used the 7 much lately, as I have not been doing much other than shopping center trips to town. I took it for a trip to town yesterday, as I would not be parking in a shopping center car park. Coming into summer it was hot, 29C, so I switched the air conditioning on. Nothing but hot air. It ...

Re: Triumph TR7 - Electric fan Positioning

I agree it doesn't matter, if the engine cooling system is in good condition, with no blockages, an electric fan can be in either place. When having a lot of trouble with cooling the 8, I did a test, after installing air conditioning in a 7 which had never had it. I removed the fan blades to see if ...

Re: It's raining TR7s

The car is up on the Darling Downs near Crows Nest, north of Toowoomba.

One of the members here is going to look at it. I report what happens either way.

Re: It's raining TR7s

Yes Beans, it must have been a pretty potent 7, 8 years ago.

I've had a call from one member who is somewhat interested. After a bit of a chat he worked out he had seen it competing way back then, & he reckoned it was a great car.
