Wedge List / Re: 1980 TR7 Electic Clock???
« Last post by Bill Derksen on June 15, 2018, 07:55:10 PM »
I think you can still get the clock new from Rimmers. They show up on

ebay all the time, and I have at least one here.

Here is an article on how to fix them:

Wedge List / TR7 silent flasher??
« Last post by Bill Derksen on June 15, 2018, 07:53:35 PM »
Yup - very dim indicators in the instrument cluster and a quiet

flasher/noisy car. Don't ask me how many miles I've driven down the

highway with the signals merrily flashing away...



You might find a louder flasher, or put in brighter bulbs/LED's in the

cluster, or there are a few articles around on putting a small buzzer in

the circuit to make it more obvious when they are flashing.

If it is the original type, just plan on replacing it. They do seem to

have a very limited lifespan.

Wedge List / 1980 TR7 Electic Clock???
« Last post by TYA2 on June 15, 2018, 05:15:36 PM »
My clock stopped working is there a magic fuse for the clock in the

TR7?  It is a factory original in the top left corner of the main

instrument cluster  with remote controls at the bottom of thedash near the

reset for the trip odometer.   Is there a source for replacement clocks of

this style?



Sorry for all the questions but the more I drive Colonel Mustard the more

niggly little things to be fixed come to light.

Wedge List / TR7 silent flasher??
« Last post by TYA2 on June 15, 2018, 05:12:13 PM »
The flasher in my 1980 TR7 works in that the lights flash appropriately

when activated and it cancels properly.   However it is so quiet I can't

really hear it.  I have a number of the other vehicles and don't have the

problem with these vehicles.   Are TR7 and 8 flasher relays really quiet?

or is this anomaly than can be solved with a new one from Victoria British?

Wedge List / TR7 windshield washer pump??
« Last post by TYA2 on June 15, 2018, 05:08:56 PM »
Dear TR7 and 8 ers,



My 1980 TR7 windshield washer pump is acting up.  It is not the fuse

because it makes a sound when the switch is activated.   The reservoir is

full.   The water is not being pumped out somewhere else because I have

checked the washer lines under the hood for leaks and clogs.   So what is

left besides replacing the pump which sounds normal??

Wedge List / Re: manual brake conversion
« Last post by Todd Kishbach on June 15, 2018, 03:57:43 PM »
Here is a link to a TR8 coupe with easy to duplicate manual brakes. Ibve

driven the car and they work extremely well.



 http://www.britishv8.org/Triumph/LorenzHassenstein-TR8.htm



Ibm building a very highly modified TR8 coupe with a 500 plus HP LS3 engine

package.  The brakes are manual and all Wilwood products.  I have reverse

mount pedals with triple masters, Wilwood calipers, aluminum hats and rotors.

Havenbt driven this particular car yet but Ibve driven other cars with

similar race setups and the package is a proven design that works great.

Wedge List / manual brake conversion
« Last post by "Allen Brenden" on June 15, 2018, 03:16:37 PM »
Has anyone converted a TR7 to manual brakes? If so, what parts were used and

how did it work out?



Thanks,

Wedge List / Re: What type of tool/screwdriver for the instruments
« Last post by Bill Derksen on June 13, 2018, 11:35:44 AM »
Even cheaper: grind/file a shallow "V" in a flat blade screwdriver. I'm

still using the one I modified 35 years ago...
