    Wedge Re: TR7 led light conversion question

    Yes, I've done it. Fairly easy to do, the only thing I encounter was that one of the flashers (the turn signal one, I think) needed to have the polarity swapped. The bi-metallic original ones don't...

    TR4/4A Re: TR4 Weight Loss Program

    Wizard says:

    Aluminum is a much stronger and more durable material compared to brass. This allows aluminum radiator cores to feature larger, “skinner” tubes which allow a greater volume of coolant...

    TR4/4A Re: TR4 Weight Loss Program

    Does your aluminum radiator have higher capacity than stock? That will offset some of the weight savings. If you still have an original type generator and starter, one of the Denso mini alternators...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Just rings?!

    General TR Re: Dumbest DPO

    My TR4A apparently had a bit of a fire under the bonnet. The DPO patched up the burnt wiring, all with the same light blue wire.

    It also works for the Stag engine, which is essentially two TR7 engines joined at the crank. Or the TR7 engine is half of the Stag engine.

    That would the the TWOA, unless ISOA also has one.

    In any case, a TWOA membership is well worth the cost for any Wedge owner.

    Wedge Re: TR parts cost

    You can find some crazy prices on eBay. Parts for the Rover V8 should be in line with any other engine. Try looking at places like Rock Auto. Regular Champion spark plugs are just fine. Also...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR2/3 Guru Final Exam

    So on my TR4A, the ring gear somehow lost all of the bolts holding it to the flywheel. Sometimes it would stick enough to the flywheel that the car would start with the stater, other times the...

    TR4/4A Re: Door Seals and Top Padded "Rail"

    That's how I did mine. Originals were long gone when I got my car (in fact, it was many years before I even released they were missing!).

    Wedge Re: TR8 research before purchase

    Hi Nick,

    I don't know what sources you have in Canada, but you should be able to get new injectors for much less than $100 each.

    Wedge Re: TR8 research before purchase

    The double-hump hood came out with the TR8, the space is needed to clear the carbs. But BL switched all models to use that hood, so later TR7s and EFI TR8s will have that hood as well.

    Wedge Re: TR8 research before purchase

    On the FI system, all the parts are Bosch (with Lucas part numbers), except the ECU (as Randall stated). The TR7 uses a Bosch ECU, but apparently they didn't have an ECU for a V8, so Lucas rolled...

    Here is the bottom corner of my aluminum rad, looks like there is plenty of room there for a petcock. And if you are removing the stock fan setup, there would be even less in the way.
