Re: Cracks

Great job there, well done.

However that sounds like ultra low gearing. My 7 does 33.5 Km/H per 1000 RPM, giving 100.5 Km/H [62.45 MPH] at 3000, with stock 5 speed transmission.

The 8 now does 100 Km/h at 2300 RPM , a bit high revving really for the 4.6L.

Triumphs can be expensive.

Well they can be if treated wrong. Don't let them sit, even in perfect storage conditions. I dropped into my old mate Gary Parkers place yesterday. Gary is a mechanic with a shop in Beaudesert, south east Queensland. A long time stalwart of the Triumph club here in Queensland with about 6 Triumphs, ...

Re: Guaranteed A1100% Hand Brake Adjustment..Please!

Since this thread I discovered the self adjusters at least on mine, work better if you apply the foot brake while reversing at a little pace. I was reading an old Renault drivers hand book which advised braking while reversing was required to make their adjusters work properly. I don't know if this ...

Re: Wheel Hub Upgraded Bearings

Beenleigh Bearings, southern Brisbane suburb, have all the best bearings. They were the only people who could tell me what was wrong with my flywheel, causing my clutch to not release properly, & can supply almost anything, due to the knowledgeable people there. I have no idea if they do mail or...

Re: Fuel Tank Filler Tube - RKC3533S

Get it galvanised. They use very good rust removal systems, & once galvanised it won't rust again in the cars lifetime.

Re: hello!

Used to be a bit like that in Oz a few years back. These days, apart from the side curtain crowd Many who have earlier TRs now have a 7 as well.

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 ...

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

Yes they fit perfectly.

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
