Re: Run out in Cheshire, this Sunday 27th

Hi Simon, Many thanks for your prompt reply. Yes, that all rings a bell and it was of interest because we took part in the last Derbyshire run out which you organised. (mine is the green car you took photos of). I look forward to hearing if the event is successfully resurrected next year. Thanks aga...

Run out in Cheshire, this Sunday 27th

I’ve made a note of this in my diary but for the life of me I don’t know who’s organising it, if it’s still on or where it starts. Can anyone else shed some light on it please, as it might be of interest as the weather forecast looks half decent?

Many thanks

Re: Newbie!

This thread is intriguing as there seems to be contradictory understanding or interpretation of the SORN regulations so I had a dig around for some clarification and came across this government document about SORN. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1997/3025/made In it is this statement which seems...

Re: Newbie!

I’m with Christopher on this one. My understanding is that legally it needs to either be taxed (even if no money changes hand because it is a historic vehicle) or it needs to be SORNed.

Re: Has Anyone Fitted the Tremac 5 Speed ?

Yes. With 3.07 diff and 0.8 fifth gear. Seems to give 28mph per 1000 revs in 4th and 33mph per 1000 revs in 5th with standard (80%?) tyres.

Re: Coolcat fan switch

I may even hide a “peace of mind” switch inside the car for those edgy moments in summer traffic! Pete Was your Kenlowe a two speed version? If it was, you can rewire the Kenlowe speed switch to be a simple on/off and it has the added benefit of illuminating whenever the fan is on. Because I don’t ...

Re: T5 gearbox

I run ATF in my T5 but I just found this interesting item on a TVR forum posted in 2015: “I've been in the ATF camp for years, there are three very good reasons why ATF works well in our T5 boxes. 1. Its free from corrosive sulphur 2. Its light enough to lubricate the needle roller bearings in the W...

Re: Sudden complete loss of fuel delivery

Hi Frank
If “not a drop of fuel coming through” didn’t actually mean that, then presumably it could still be electrical. Like something breaking down when it gets hot. Could be condensor, coil or the dreaded black rotor arm for example.

Re: Clutch choices, and Release Bearing and Fork Woes

Rory, If you’re looking for a 9.5” friction plate then the item I purchased for my T5, back in 2010 is from AP Racing and has part number CP2346-4. It seems to have increased in price considerably in the intervening 8 years but there seems to be another plate with identical spec, a little cheaper, u...

Re: Fuel Tank Sump - Tank Thread - Parallel or Tapered?

Bob, this is not an area where I have any knowledge, but looking at the picture of the old sump, is there a copper washer (say) at 15mm and then a spacer, which are possibly being held in place by the black paint?

When you’re not logged on you also don’t know you have any Notifications or PMs. I have two PMs which I know haven’t been read by the recipients so I am assuming they are not logged on. If the headings on the left are in black, then you’re not logged on.........I think :scratchheadyellow:
