Re: MGF 15" wheels

They should fit OK, sometimes the centre bore needs to be relieved a little. You can often get sets from people breaking MGF's much cheaper than that. Not sure what centre cap fits (other than MG) but I think many keep the MG caps with Triumph/TR7 etc stickers over as available on ebay, something li...

Re: TR7 Headlamp Flash CCT & LED headlights

I would advocate fitting an electronic flasher unit whether you use LED or normal incandescent bulbs, although agree that there are better things to spend on than LED indicator bulbs, the power saving is minimal when you consider how long they are actually on for. With an electronic flasher unit the...

Re: Wiring loom tape?

You can purchase split electrical conduit in various colours and sizes that looks quite neat. supercass I have just ordered this to tidy some of the wiring on the 9-3 where the original has broken up: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BLACK-SPIRAL-CONDUIT-SPLIT-TUBE-CABLE-TIDY-WIRE-LOOM-HARNESS-TRUNKING/1...

Re: where does this go?

Welcome to the forum. They are great cars. Also join the TR7 Owners Page on Facebook for more advice. The 'Files' section has a lot of documents and a copy of the workshop manual available. To try and answer your queries: 1. That does look like the bracket which holds the fuel gauge delay unit. 2. T...

Re: TR7 Fuel Gauge & Sender

When I got my car the gauge just read 'full' all the time. I changed the gauge (for a s/h one) and it has worked OK since. Not sure why but they seem to fail showing either empty or full.

Re: Any idea why I would want to buy a TR7 VIN plate?

I didn't think it was legal to sell the VIN of a car? I thought that was used when they did naughty things like cloning to change the identity of a vehicle.

Re: Lights left on buzzer

Have to admit I have never left the headlights on in the TR7 as they stick up so are quite visible! I don't drive on sidelights so, as it the same switch, they all get turned off together. That's what I like about my Saabs. With the headlight switch in the headlights on position they go off when you...

Re: Lights left on buzzer

Cig socket is not ignition switched on my 7 (unlike modern cars!) Looking at the wiring diagram it is fed from the hazard flasher unit connection.

Re: Starts then dies help

Assume the 'ballast resistor' noted is the 'eureka (resistance) wire' which drops the voltage to the coil to around 8V? The car starts on 12v from a start ignition switch contact and the drops to 8V for the 6V coil when it is released. However, I would agree with Beans to check the switch as they ha...

Re: Front ride height

I used a roller bearing kit which I think came from S&S (was some 14 years ago). It did not seem to materially raise the ride height. I also thought it did not seem to be doing much and when I stripped the struts to put new inserts in 6 years ago the grease was hard and they did not roll!

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.
