    TR4/4A Automatic transmission in a TR4 A

    I know this is considered blasphemy in our world, but a friend of mine has a TR4 A but due to leg problems can no longer depress the clutch pedal. So I was wondering if the automatic transmission from the Stag could be used in the TR4 A. Also whether anyone out there has done this? Thanks, Dan

    New member and new owner of a derelict 64 TR4

    Hi All! My first car was a 2nd hand TR7, then I had a couple of 70's Spitfires, then 25 years later a couple of XJ40's. When the electric fuel pump in my 87 XJ was stranding me and the shops were holding on to it for 6 weeks or more and out of experience with the model, not even beginning to...

    TR4 from the ground up

    Retired and myself taking pats of my 62 TR4. When I got past the tipping point I figured I might as well go all the way. As of date it seems you can't take 2 steps without running into car parts. As of date, the chassis is ready for coating. I look forward to getting helps and hints as I put...

    TR4/4A TR4 Carburetors/Idling

    Have adjusted the carburetors SU-H6 as the two front spark plugs were running too rich. Flow meters show identical measurements. Gunsun Colortune shows blue/ red flame. Still the two front cylinders are fouling the spark plugs. If the mixture is set to more lean, it won't idle when driving...

    TR4/4A Which seat frame do I have?

    Hi Guys! I've stripped my passenger seat down and would really appreciate your knowledge on what frame I have. My TR4 was built 10/23/1962, but my seat covers (per Moss pictures) are from a 4a. Are my frames from a 4a? The front of the passenger side has a small 'dent' in the lower rail that...

    TR2/3/3A TR4 Air cleaners on TR3

    Would appreciate any clarification of what I have read on some of the threads about alternative paper air cleaners. Do the early TR4 paper cleaners fit the TR3 carbs AND clear the inner fenders? Were the TR4 cleaners a complete disposable assembly, or were the paper filters replaceable? I see...
