TR7 indicator fault (turn-signal)

The electronic flasher units are much better. Some have 3 connectors and need an additional earth (easy) and some are a straight replacement with only 2 connectors. The work better and flash at a constant rate even when idling. Main flasher unit is above (or normally dangling below) the steering col...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

Basically shows what I described, the heating element on the bimetal strip contact. Sloshing the fuel in cornering will only give momentary power to the unit, not long enough to heat the strip to make contact so stopping the light from flashing. If the level stays low for long enough it will allow t...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

Actually, looking further at the diagram there are connections on the green cable feeding the likes of the wash/wipe switch and stop light switch. It seems to be a common power feed so the double up must be to one of them. Try pulling the green connection from the delay unit and see if that solves y...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

Looks a slight variation on the wiring diagram I have. That does not show the doubled up connections. It shows: Green - G -from Hazard switch Green/orange - GO - to tank unit Light Green/Red - LGR - from the low fuel warning light Black - B - ground By the looks of it the when the low level contact ...

Re: RELAY..Low fuel? BDS 1004 Giving grief

This listing on US ebay suggests it is the low fuel delay. Certainly looks like it (normally fitted to the top of the instrument cluster under the cowling). https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Smiths-Low-Fuel-Warning-Relay-Thermal-Delay-Switch-Triumph-TR7-TR8-New-1-/223192370154 On the wiring diagram it se...

Re: hello!

Not really.
When is it noisy? Tends to suggest the release bearing on its way.

Re: TR7 Steering Wheel question

Sounds a good fix. I was tempted to answer yes as I was sure I had prised them off when I sprayed mine but then looked at the wheel I have in the garage and they seemed very tight so I left it not wanting to be the cause of any damage. The paint does scratch and mine could do with a respray (althoug...

Re: What have i done !!!!

It seems that you cant take the instrument panel out before you remove the dash ???? You need to take the top section over the instrument cluster out to remove it, but not the entire dash. As above, take the top section off, reach under and release the speedo cable, take the weird screws out of the...

Re: Completely Dead

I assume the battery connections have been checked and cleaned, I have had similar on our Montero the other side of the world where the terminal clamp had got eaten away and cracked, with a bit of corrosion it no longer carried any current. There is a splitter connection on the lead where it dives d...

Re: POWER STEERING

I put the needle roller bearings in the strut mounts when rebuilt about 14 years ago. When I had to put new inserts in the struts about 5 years ago I found the grease in the bearings had gone hard and they hardy worked so stripped and repacked them. The steering has never been light at paring speeds...

Re: One of those days when you think you are winning.....

No, they have never failed mine on it. I just told them they had to pull the lever down again to stop them. It was more of an irritation to me that they did not work properly. Had another of those days last week when I was getting the instrument lighting to work again. Having stripped out the instru...

Re: POWER STEERING

Going by the ones I know, I don't think the racks are particularly fast, just have a lot of power assistance (and can be too light). Lock to lock does not feel different in the number of turns. I think most of the after market kits (like S&S) retain the original rack but change out the steering ...

Re: POWER STEERING

Most smaller cars now have electric power steering. S&S do a kit based, I believe, on the Corsa system. (http://ss-preparations.co.uk/). There are hundreds of thousands of cars running around with electric systems reliably. My wife has a Pug 207 with it, the assistance varies with speed being li...

Re: Fuel pump service kit.

From memory the diaphragm is moved by the arm riding on the cam to suck fuel in from the tank through one one way valve and then pump it out through the other one way valve into the carb float chambers. I would have thought if the diaphragm was badly damaged or holed it would not work well at all.

Re: Fuel pump service kit.

If the car is over fueling it sounds like the fuel pump is over pressurising if it is the pump? If the fuel pump diaphragm was bad would that not have the opposite effect, ie low pressure. Assume you have standard SU's? You could try a thickness or two of card as a shim in gasket to the block to red...
