Re: Speedo not working

Is it a US car with the service counter? I think these sometimes give trouble in the service counter 'box', might be worth opening it and having a look.
If it does not have that it might be the drive gear in the gearbox, they are plastic IIRC.

Re: Timing adjust

Also make sure that the sensor is aligned/centered correctly. it should be in line with any one of the distributor cap contacts when the motor is at TDC, or at least very close.

Re: TR7 Water Pump - Davies Craig EWP80

It has an electronic controller that adjusts the pump speed according to engine temp. For more info here is Davies Craig's site: https://daviescraig.com.au/ That makes more sense than an on/off sensor, would not like to stop the flow through the engine! Have to admit I have not read that book for a...

Re: TR7 Water Pump - Davies Craig EWP80

I think there was a thread on the old forum regarding fitting these pumps. Someone was making a plug to blank off the existing pump opening on the TR7 engine if I remember correctly. If it is fitted in the bottom hose and the thermostat removed how does it control the engine temperature? Would it no...

Re: Soft top roof advice appreciated

I fitted a new mohair one to mine, makes it easier to use in colder weather as vinyl goes quite hard/stiff. If fitting a vinyl hood you need to either be in a well heated garage or mid summer to get enough flexibility in the material. There is a chapter in 'How to improve your TR7' on fitting the ho...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

Hi, not sure if you tried your old username and password but as far as I know they were carried across from the old forum to the new one. I think old posts can still be found with the Search function (sure I have found some of my old ones before). The forum is run by Christopher Kenneth Smith so he ...

Re: Who wants the latest trend in pop-up headlights?

Sold 100,000 of them, my car must be one of the few missed!!
Now have 900 available - but not for a picture?
Why would you want to control the lights to various levels, to make it look sleepy?

Re: Triumph TR7 - Caliper bolt settings (Princess 4-pot)

Much easier with an EziBleed kit, just make sure the powering tyre pressure is only around 20psi. Also, the master cylinder brake failure switch (on the underside) should be unscrewed for bleeding.

Triumph TR7 - Seat belt warning light.

Going by the manual, there is only a passenger seat switch but a seat belt switch in both the driver and passenger units. It looks as if the seat pad switch is NO and made when sat in and the seat belt switches (in the receiving part) are NC to earth and opened by insertion of the belt. The light is...

Re: TR7 - Rimmers carpet opinion

I was considering new carpets a few years ago (but still not done it!!) and got samples from a few suppliers, but not Rimmers as had heard they were not so good. IIRC I had decided on Coverdale, although not from their expensive ranges. https://www.carcarpets.co.uk/triumph-tr7-dhc-1979-to-1981-carpe...

Re: Brake fluid for Triumph TR7

I use the Eezibleed for my brakes and clutch, works well. The only thing I have found is that with the single bleed screw at the back a small amount of air sometimes collects at that point over the year and it then fails the MOT on rear brake imbalance. Using the Eezibleed with a bottle full of flui...
