Ditto what James said about doing some preventative maintenance on the safety systems (brakes, tires, seat belts, check suspension, etc) of your TR8 before you take it anywhere...







I like 205/60R13 as a nice upgrade from stock that still fits stock rims, but these are getting hard to find these days!







I would love to hear some comments from people who have tried the Pirelli Cinturato's on a wedge - my fear would be that they would be too "wallowy" without steel belts...

Wedge List / in-tank TR8 fuel pump
« Last post by tencate on March 21, 2017, 08:27:47 AM »
Therebs a small hose that goes from the pump to the outlet tube. Rubber. It

perishes in Ethanol (ask me how I know). Therebs an old TWOA newsletter

article about it in fact. So you need to buy fuel hose that is fully

submersible and will tolerate ethanol (30R10 spec if memory serves me right).

Itbs expensive stuff as I recall. But worth the price unless you want to

pull out the pump every couple of years to replace the hose. Not me thanks.



But I forget the size of the hose, is it 1/4 in or 5/16 in or ??? My mind is

going. Ibll start searching but hope someone here knows??

Cool. Flush the brake lines first :-)

I use a standard NGK copper plug, nothing fancy, Ibve tried fancy ones and

maybe they make a difference, maybe not.

Nice tires are the Pirelli Cinturato that Lucas Classic Tires sells. Ibll

likely get a set for my stock alloys this Spring. Yes, theybre radials.

Ibve also nearly used up a set of Kumhos, a good tire, predictable, cheap

but looks a bit bsmallishb for some reason.

Good luck with the strip and repaint process. Ask David Elsberry about

stripping TPA paint. Canbt wait for photos!

My TR8 was delivered today so I am back into wedges.  I need to go through

a complete maintenance check yet over the next few weeks and get vintage

plates.



What is a good spark plug for a stock engine?  I looked on the TWOA

archives but did not see any articles in the directory.



Been looking at 13 inch tires and I will probably stay with a stock

185/70r/13 for now and move to a 15 or 16 inch tire in a year or so.  Any

suggestions, a lot of manufactures I am not familiar with.  I might stay

with Cooper or Mastercraft as I have had their tires in the past.

Slightly off topic, but it is Triumph, Sidescreen TR fans will  like
it I hope.




Assuming the link works ok, look down  the page a little way and run the

Wedge List / Power Steering Fluid Leak
« Last post by Alan Woody on March 16, 2017, 09:06:25 AM »
I just ordered the power steering hoses from Woody.  I also ordered a

couple of the power steering pump banjo bolt washers since someone posted

the comment that their power steering leak was fixed with those.  I hope

that I'll be able to replace the hoses without dropping the subframe. If

the hoses don't stop the leak then I'll order a rebuild kit for the rack.



What power steering fluid should I be using?  The ROM calls for automatic

transmission fluids that I can't find like "Castrol TQF, Esso Glide, and

Texmatic Type 'F'"  So would it be better to use the right kind of ATF, or

should I keep using the Lucas Stop Leak or some other kind of power

steering fluid?

When I rebuilt my car I sent it off for a rebuild but some say they are not that difficult if all you have to do is replace the seals and such.  I sent mine to TSI and it worked flawlessly for 9 years until the crash.  I intend to reinstall it when the time comes.

I'm suspecting that I need to rebuild it since there's fluid within

gator/bellows. I didn't really think there should be. Ok so .... NEXT! LOL
