Wedge List / Re: doh.... was Trouble Shifting
« Last post by Chris Hansel on April 01, 2019, 06:11:49 PM »
Jim, as we all know by now, or we all should know, these cars do not like to

sit. I just got done paying about $1000 to get the stag running again due to

bad gasoline that was only four or five months old. Have to drive these

suckers at least once a month.

Wedge List / Re: gear pumps in 5 speed gearbox

Jim,



I called The Wedge Shop when I read these posts, as all my TR8's for the last

10 years have had metal pump gears and in mid-install of a turbo 4.9 using one

of these trannys!  Woody let me know that they have only run metal pump gears

in any transmission that has come through their shop (upwards of 200 across

last 10 years) and not had any come back (or have not been told by customers)

that had issues due to the pump gears.



Im curious to see what you transmission issues end up being....  I donbt

think itbs the gears maybe something else??

Wedge List / RE: TR7/8 fuses
« Last post by "David Huddleson" on April 01, 2019, 05:20:30 PM »
To answer the actual question of the correct fuses for the standard
TR7 or TR8 fuse box, in North America I would expect the major Triumph
parts suppliers such as The Roadster Factory, Moss Motors and the
Wedge specialists such as The Wedge Shop and TS Imported will carry
the proper British-sized fuses. In the UK, of course places like
Rimmer, S&S and Robsport come to mind as large suppliers that will
have the right ones.

Now, I am not sure anyone sells a pre-packaged "set" for you, but
certainly they will have them individually in the common 5, 10, 35 and
50 amp ratings.

I always advise folks to "Check the easy stuff first."B  Do I do that?B

Sometimes.B  As you said, if you've already convinced yourself what the

problem is, why bother with the other stuff?

Advice: always check the obvious things first, no matter how much you're sure

that it can't possibly be the problem.



Why? I put the car up on cribbing blocks with the intent to crawl under the

car today. Before I crawled under there, I figured I should make sure the

fluid level was topped up in case I wanted to bleed the clutch line later or

something. Clutch has a new Master and Slave (original Girling TRW) as of

about a year ago.



Surprise. Fluid level was about 2/3 of the way down. Doh! Not sure where it

went but it clearly leaked out somewhere. JUST enough to give me a funky

shift.



OK, do I get an award for being stupid? Why do I always assume it's gotta be

the absolute WORST thing instead of looking at the obvious.

I see that the Wedge Shop sells correct fuses in lots of 5. Either of various ratings or all of one rating.
FYI - Used forward to eliminate getting multiple copies of responses.
