« Last post by Ross LoMonaco on October 08, 2019, 06:47:39 AM »
I just purchased OEM alloy wheels for my 1980 TR8.B  What tires do you

recommend?

Is this the correct size?B  185/70 13

I am considering Kumho Solus.

Anyone have any experience with Nankang CX668?

Any other to consider?

You may have a very hard transmission mount that is transmitting drive train
noise to the interior of the coupe.

TR8 Noise.


 Hello Listers,


 I have a pair of TR8s a DHC and a FHC. The FHC makes more noise than the
DHC. Why? The FHC has a steel roof to keep the racket inside and the DHC
rarely has the top up . Both cars have the same motor with a Holley and open
air filter fitted with Rimmers stainless four chamber exhaust.


 I think the intake makes a good deal of noise on a strong pull and really on
an uphill pull. Has anyone found a better manner of doing an air filter that
make less air intake noise?


 The entire Rimmer mufflers system is open/straight through with
surrounding
absorption material. I would like to find a rear silencer which uses a
folded design muffler. Room is limited. Anyone have advice?


 My first susprission was that something in the car was touching. It is
not.


Please any ideas or comments.


CHEERS

Bill,  while sourcing an OEM part is a good strategy,  in this case I would

suggest using anything that fits the application.



If  the replacement part fits the nut snuggly and can be locked in place by

the cotter pin that should be your main concern.



I would give one of those Dorman parts a try and if you find something that

works well,  let me know and Ibll add it to the next wwwedge cross reference

update.



Regards



Mark

I find, at least in the UK,, that agricultural equipment suppliers have a

vast range of fixings on the shelf.

William,



According to the ROM the nut is 9/16" UNF.

Castle nuts of this size are available in Australia, so I would bet a lot

of money it would be elsewhere.



I thought the retainer was the same as that used on the Rover SD1 (which

are available) but I was wrong! The Rover nut is 12mm according to the

Rover ROM.



Regards ... Trevor
