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: Best TR7 Stainless-Steel Exhaust?

Baked bean cans and a few exhaust clamps make a pretty good temporary repair!

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...

Re: Triumph TR7 - Electric fan Positioning

Provided the airflow is in the right direction I am not sure there is a 'right' place. When my viscous fan got a bit noisy I removed the fan blades (leaving the pulley and belt) and fitted an electric fan to the front of the rad. This was partly as it would not fit on the back with the pulley in pla...

Re: Refreshing the Mohair hood on my V8

Not on the TR7 but on my Saab 9-3 convertible I vacuum the blue roof, scrub with Johnsons Blue baby bath using a nail brush, when dry wash with Miltons solution then when dry paint with Fabsil. This is a recognised way with those roofs. I find it does not get out all the deep seated green and small ...

Re: TR7 - pertronix ignition

Still not looked at mine, although I do only do about 1000 miles a year.

Only as difficult to install as new points or even adjusting them really and you had to do that quite often.

Triumph TR7 Boot lid gas struts (trunk)

As above, the boot strut is a little different to the bonnet one in that it is a lift to release rather than having a catch to push in. If you can get a boot strut from an earlier car it also has the advantage that the top bracket fits to existing tapped holes in the boot lid. There is only the bott...

Triumph TR7 Boot lid gas struts (trunk)

There has been discussion on this on the TR7 Owners page on FB and they are available, take a look there. I think one member was selling them on ebay previously too. I fitted a boot strut from an early car to mine some years ago (similar to the bonnet strut). The tappings are in the boot lid, just t...

Re: Fitting new Bluetooth radio!!

As far as I am aware 7's only had door speakers (in the forward lower corner if you do not have anything currently fitted). I make do with these (5" IIRC) but then I am tone deaf. Others of a more musical bent have fitted fancy slim speakers on the rear bulkhead too. Not sure what they were but...
