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/ They have been making thermatic cooling products since the early 70s, we used their thermatic fans in our race cars back in the early 70s and h...

Re: TR7 Water Pump - Davies Craig EWP80

I've been recommending these things for years, fitted one to a mate's 32 Ford roadster hotrod running a 429 Ford V8 (7.0 litre) a bloody good piece of kit. I've got one for my 73 landrover running a 351 Ford Cleavland V8 (5.8 litre) That is if I ever get around to finishing it.......who knows I migh...

Wanted TR7 Rally Front Spoiler (in Australia)

Yeah I seem to remember them being for sale as the vendor was ill,I remember thinking at the time the poor bugger was probably sick from breathing the fiberglass fumes as so many others had before him.

Maybe contact any the Triumph clubs here in OZ

Re: Another wiring question

Somewhere in the dark distant past I sat down and figured out exactly how the bloody complex headlight system works, I posted the explanation on this forum. I suggest a look back through the archives to try and find it, the search will be worth the time it takes to do it. And regardless of the curre...

Re: Another wiring question

Looked up the part#, even found some alternative part# but none of these feature it the TR7/8 parts catalogue........not that that would mean much! I can tell you it is a 1amp diode and is used in many applications and different cars including the Deloren, which apparently has 6 of 'em the scatted t...

Re: Another wiring question

I don't think that's right....I have the hand brake circuit using black/purple wiring. The heated rear window circuit uses white/black wiring. As to what it would be doing there..... a guess is; given that the resistance would very as the heater warms up, it might be there to automatically shut down...

Re: Another wiring question

Its a diode (for those who don't know what a diode does it is a semi conductor which allows current to easily pass one way through it, but it restricts the flow back the other way) As to what it's doing there....... I don't know, but if you were to look at the wiring diagram, the approximate locatio...

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

It would depend if your in a state that dosen't require an annual inspection such as Victoria
So if you are in such a state the you could register it with the 4.0 version and stuff the larger capacity version in later.

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

There wasn't a lot of difference between the P76 engine and that of the Terrier, different carbie, cam profile, dissy advance curve and the colour of the rocker covers.

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

I can see a couple of Leyland P76 motors in that pic, for those of you who don't know what a P76 is it was a cor made here in Oz that used a 4.4 litre version of the RV8, they ran larger main bearings and the block has a higher deck height for the increased stroke.

Re: I am restoring my TR7 DHC

I had to replace my MIG welder, due to an idiot mate borrowing it, leaving it out side in the weather for @ a month, then wondering why it wouldn't go! :roll: So I've just got myself one of these: https://sydneytools.com.au/assets/images/products/7/5/1/0/7510/E55F628E9AF80ABFBBE422A7DB971CC6491AEB60...
