I hadn't heard about the rotors.  I'll try to overnight a couple before

hitting the road.

Shiner Bock, certainly.B  Also get a couple of distributor rotors.B  There

were some bad ones in circulation some years back and when they go, they go

instantaneously with no warning.B  They are cheap, easy to swap out and take

up very little room.



Enjoy.B  Those conventions are fun.

Wedge List / Newbie question from a not-so-newbie
« Last post by Chris on April 21, 2019, 04:59:07 PM »
I have a confession to make.B  I've been driving Triumphs for 25 years -

started with a Spitfire, now a TR8 - and have *NEVER* been to a regional

or national meet.B  I'll wait for the gasps of disbelief to subside.....



The good news:B  I plan to rectify this personality flaw this week when I

attend the VTR SC Regionals In Posttsboro, TX, on Lake Texoma.B  I'll be

driving up from San Antonio, convoying with a couple of friends.B  It's a

little over 350 miles one way, mostly interstate and state highway.



I'm driving a freshly built carbed TR8 with a Hollie.B  Most everything

is new or rebuilt including a new Pertronics distributor.B  I've put

about 1200 miles on it since the rebuild with few problems, mostly local

car shows and club events. Longest day trip so far has been about 175

miles.



So, what do all y'all recommend to throw in the boot? Tools? Spares?B  

Shiner Bock?

We make a 1 piece steel braid clutch hose, master to slave. Fits TR7 &TR8 depending on how it is routed. Much easier to bleed and only connections compared to 4 on OE. Ted

Thanks Darrell.  Now i just need to figure out which is upper and which is

lower as they are fairly similar.  6 years on memory fails me.

Hi Bill,



On my TR8, the soft line had previously been replaced, but there is a single

hard line from the slave that does a 180 bend out of the slave, goes between

the oil pan and transmission (held with a couple of clamps that use the bolts

that hold the cover of the bottom of the transmission), then up to the side of

the bell housing where the end is held in a bracket.  From the master, there

is a hard line down to another bracket on the firewall.  The flex line goes in

between.

Wedge List / TR8 Clutch Master Lines
« Last post by Triplesn8s on April 20, 2019, 08:14:44 PM »
Listers,

I am befuddled by the clutch line situation. On the TR eight, does a hardline

mate to another hard line and then the flex line? I have a couple of lines I

did not label and they are somewhat similar but not the same. They both end in

a sharp hook, one obviously for the master cylinder but it doesn't make sense

on the slave cylinder end of things. Anyone to have a picture of the Stocks

set up they can send to me? TIA!
