    TR5/TR250 Re: TR250 question (Not asking for a friend)

    Thanks for the advice - I might do that, although my excess is $450, and I am still not there yet with my expenses due to my mistake.

    TR5/TR250 Re: TR250 question (Not asking for a friend)

    Hello, fellow Triumph enthusiast. Just to keep you posted; I received the new ignition switch, but that didn't solve the issue, either. So, now I have ordered a new ammeter (which will take a loooong...

    TR5/TR250 Re: TR250 question (Not asking for a friend)

    Thank you, guys - for advice and not telling me off :) I have ordered a new ignition switch and hopefully that does the trick. The next thing to obtain might then be an ammeter. The weather is such a...

    TR5/TR250 TR250 question (Not asking for a friend)

    I hold my hands up and confess my mistake; long story including bad weather, bad temper and little time cut short; I managed to put my new battery the wrong way round, fixed the negative pole to the...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Hello all! Final (I hope) update! Changed the oil pump, followed instructions from AH Spares: primed the pump, removed spark plugs and turned the engine in five second bursts three-four times to...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Hi! New oil pump has arrived and I'm about to change the (hopefully) faulty one. After reading a bit, I consider this as a rather straight forward job, where I have to take care to ensure that the...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    I have now ordered a new pump (from the UK, this time) and hope that will solve the problem. Perhaps I should have checked the shaft and the thrust waster first, but I'm off for the holidays now and...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Thanks again for your advice! I really appreciate it.

    Checked the oil pressure directly from the engine block with a meter borrowed from a local garage: zero pressure. Removed the rocker cover...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Hi, Patrick - Yes, I've checked and double checked, the filter is filled with oil and I have checked that oil is actually coming out when cranking the engine. Also, the oil pressure was zero before I...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Weekend and time on my hands to have another go. Moss didn't have the oil pump in stock so I checked the restrictor between the engine and the oil hose: clean and clear. Hose: ok. Uninstalled and...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Thanks, Marty - that does seem to be a plausible explanation. I was certain that because the oil filter was filled with oil and also because oil came out through the middle hole on the adapter when...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    No, I haven't, because I concluded that wasn't the problem since no oil came out of the engine when I disconnected the tube feeding the oil pressure gauge.

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Thanks for all the input. Made up my mind to change the oil pump, which probably isn't a bad idea, anyway, and hopefully that will rectify the problem. Order is placed, so now it's waiting time. Good...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Alright - dropped the pan and found the screen to be clean which obviously wouldn't obstruct the oil flow in any way. Will the next step for an instant amateur car surgeon be to inspect/change the...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Hmm... The thing is that it wasn't well before I installed the spin on filter kit; I had zero pressure then and was hoping that installing the new filter and replacing the pressure valve would...

    Re: Zero oil pressure

    Thank you for replies! I just now removed the oil filter, turned the engine and oil immediately gushed out of the hole. Doesn't that indicate that the oil pump works as it should, afterall?

    Hi, there! Spent a few hours on the forum and otherwise on the Net to figure out what to do, have done a few things adviced, but problem persists: zero oil pressure. So now I turn to all the...

    I've now read several discussions and threads on "scuttle shake" and have come to a conclusion that my '66 BJ8 seems to have the same problem. If the problem is caused by imbalanced brake drums,...

    Hi! Thank a lot for replies! I will take your suggestions and see if I can find out if there is something wrong with the chassis frame/rear springs. Hopefully the reason might be less serious than I...

    BJ8 low on left side

    Hi everyone!

    Being a Norwegian working/living in London last year was a great Healey-experience. Brought my car over and used it a lot driving around outside London. A highlight during this period...
