Wedge List / Re: Torque Steer
« Last post by Pat Ledford on July 24, 2017, 07:48:40 PM »
This is not the first wedge I have owned nor the first uni-body I have

dealt with.  I knew there were some mechanical areas that need repaired or

replaced on the "8" but the main reason I bought this car was it's rust

free condition.  There is a possibility mounting issues could be the

problem but I do not think so and if so I will chalk it up to an expensive

education and part it out.

Many TR8's are having problems with rusty mountings for the rear axle.  There

have been many TR8's sold on ebay that are too rusty to restore.  But it seems

that many of the TR8 buyers want a cheap ride.  You get what you pay for.

Or in my case, it was the frame & mountings succumbing to the magic rust...



(Bushings are easier!!)

Rear trailing arm bushings are giving up the magic smoke.

Wedge List / Torque Steer
« Last post by Pat Ledford on July 24, 2017, 04:49:39 PM »
I labeled this Torque Steer because I was not sure what to call it.  As I

drive the 8 more and sort various items out I found that when I let off the

gas the car has a tendency to move to the right.  I had it aligned this

morning seeing if there was a cause there but everything in the front was

fine, just needed toe adjustment.

So now I assume there is something in the rear needing addressed.  I did a

visual inspection a while ago while I had it on jack stands and did not see

anything obvious.  The gas gauge quit again so it will be going back on

jack stands in the next couple of days.  What should I look for to find the

problem of what I called torque steer?

Wedge List / Headlight Relay Alt Part
« Last post by "Brian" on July 24, 2017, 12:58:37 PM »
Does anyone have a generic part number for the Headlight Relays as used on

the TR8?  



UKC2416  - Lucas Part SRB411 - Rover Part DAC1028



If you look at the relay diagrams at

www.jagstyperegister.com/images/maintdocs/Lucas-relays%20etc.pdf



then Lucas SRB500 has the same circuitry but is rectangular rather than

round.  

That should give some more generic cheaper options!

used on the TR8?  The Lucas part(or  substitute) are very expensive from the

usual suppliers.



it seems a bad on is keeping one of my headlights from going up or down.
