« Last post by j t on December 05, 2017, 06:11:57 PM »
Hellllooo Listers,

 I have two TR8's one a 1980 DHC and the other a 1979 FHC. The clock on the

FHC works now and then and the DHC does not function.

 I understand that some 1981 production used quartz clocks. Are these

Wedge List / Hew Upshaw Triumph Cars website info needed.
« Last post by Karl Schmitt on December 05, 2017, 04:12:35 PM »
From Clay Thompson I learned of a website that might be of interest to me as

it offers info on TR-7 dashboard instrument clusters. Best he could remember

was that it was by Hew Upshaw and perhaps was called Triumph Cars.

I could not find it via google. Can anyone provide a link or other

information pertinent to this site?

Thank you, Karl Schmitt of St. Louis.   636-797-4203

Wedge List / TR7/8 FI parts
« Last post by Todd Kishbach on December 05, 2017, 12:58:37 PM »
I was just in contact with a place up in Maine that has a stash of good used

TR8 parts.  Some of the parts he said he had were a complete FI TR8 engine,

decent 81 blue interior, 2 outlet gas tanks, etc.  He said he just filled a

shipping container full of body panels and sent it back to England.  He also

said he had a really clean 81 silver FI TR7 he wants to sell.  If you need

something unobtanium, maybe he has it.  His email is  His

business is called Leyland British Auto in Arundel Me.  He has been running an

ad on Maine Craigslist as well.

Hi Wedge Group, I will be re-installing the dashboard in my 1980 TR-7 DHC

shortly and before doing so, I should like to have the spedo/tach instrument

cluster serviced. Can someone  provide me with the name of a shop which has

prior experience with TR-7 instruments and is reliable.
