Wedge List / Re: TR 7 Fan Belt size
« Last post by Greg Gall on July 31, 2019, 07:45:11 PM »
I use Rock Auto quite a bit...







They show that the 1980 A/C TR7 gets:







Gates 9365, which is 15/32b x 36-7/8b







(Which is 1/16b thicker and 1-1/4b longer than the one they gave you).

Wedge List / TR 7 Fan Belt size
« Last post by PAUL CRABB on July 31, 2019, 07:32:06 PM »
Does anyone know the correct size or have a part number (NAPA, AutoZone etc.) for the TR 7 Fan Belt? The one I got at NAPA is 13/32" x 35 5/8" or 10mm x 904mm. It is too small. The part number that NAPA listed for the TR7 is the wrong belt.



Tks/ Paul C.

Wedge List / More Lawyer Letters

You and your children are going to get another letter from the lawyer in

San Diego soon.  We've accepted an offer on the condo and CA law requires

notification be sent to all the named beneficiaries before we can finalize

it.  No action required unless you want to object.

I'm not sure if the T7 used standard or metric, but im attaching a hardware

catalog.

Wedge List / Decals and headlights - More
« Last post by jaltman636@gmail.com on July 30, 2019, 12:44:26 PM »
So, the headlight issues are resolved and all lights work as advertised.  I

had to clean and tighten some of the grounds, use some contact cleaner on some

of the molex connectors (did them all as long as I was there) and of course

the low beam on the driverbs side turned out to be a bad bulb.  What a

choice of times for the bulb to die.  I checked voltage at the fuse and (lucky

me) decided to work back from the headlamp connector.  Had good voltage there,

so popped in a spare bulb I had sitting around and voila.







I have a few partial sheets of decals and have the nose bTR8b and the

wreath emblems for the sides, but am missing the b3.5 Literb ones.  Anyone

got those to spare?

So, I have a set of decals that is al least 15 years old.



Any reason they should not be good?  Do they just peal and stick?  I seem to



remember something about wetting the area with soapy water before applying.



I need to apply the big TR8 in the center front and the 3.5 liter and



emblems on the sides. Advice?



If they've been stored well, they should be ok.  The soapy water allows you to

move them around a bit.  You apply by removing the inner backing, apply to the

car, then remove the outer backing.  They use a credit card or a plastic

scraper to squeegee out the soapy water and any air bubbles working from the

center out.  You can google "how to apply decals to a car" and probably come

up with a bunch of Youtube videos showing how it works.

Two questions:















I just got my car back from having the front end repainted.  It had been



repainted in 2000-2001 following an accident, the back half looked great,



but that was the era when clear coat didn't work and it had pealed and



looked crappy.  So, I have a set of decals that is al least 15 years old.

I need to apply the big TR8 in the center front and the 3.5 liter and



emblems on the sides. Advice?















Also, upon return they had removed the headlight buckets and the left bucket



is balky going up and down and the low beam light is dim.  The fuses are



good and have proper voltage.  I suspect the ground is doggy.  Where does



the driver's side headlights find their ground?  Is it the bolts for the



bucket mount itself so is there a grounding point somewhere.  Its been a



long time since I had to pay attention to the headlights and don't recall.















Thanks all.

The ground for that corner should be several black wire attached to one of the

bolts by the relay cluster in the engine bay. At least on my 81.
