TD's Daily Ti thread

Good news! - all ok on the brake tester :D In fact rear left gave slightly better response than rear right. Rear right is still first to lock up under savage braking - maybe it's a weight distribution effect. In reply to Alan, yes as new the shoe with the handbrake lever attached has noticeably thin...

Brass fuel tube thingy... Any ideas what it is?

.... Which reminds me, although I've not seen anything about it, I'm guessing I should replace the short sections going to each injector? When I had my injectors checked and cleaned some years ago, the technician said "Don't need to change that, it's Japanese quality" referring to injector rubbers....

Yes, handbrake lever often stiff as new, I freed up that rivet/hinge on this and previous occasions, explicitly with a good yank in direction perpendicular to rotation. Then applied a light smear of copper grease. Both new and old (as in removed) are/were freely moving. Hopefully I'll get new test a...

1800 TI for sale in the Netherlands

The point is that this car is in Europe and can be viewed by European buyers fairly easily (just a drive, no ferries etc) whereas a car situated in the UK is not as easy to view for Europeans

Forum editing capabilities?????

Technically no problem, I have 200 MB broadband, win 10, intel 980 hex core cpu, nvidia 950 gtx SSD disks, so more (much more!) than sufficient for websites, can just do virtual reality (graphics card is weak link).
Maybe I'll try some tests in next few days to get to bottom of the problem.

Handbrake cable over the exhaust: Yes that was the previous problem that lead to the overheating of the drum...and subsequent replacements. Handbrake cable is free-operating for last 12 months and more. And still today. Looking at brake shoe wear, I wonder why the one with the handbrake lever is thi...

Just spent a whole lot of time making a post with with a couple of photos. I cannot believe how effing difficult it was! Now the new site is much better than the old one, that's true. Dragging and dropping the photo sometimes seems to work and sometimes seems not to. A JPEG seems to be received more...

APK time (aka MOT) ugh: 1. left lower front wishbone rubbing against chassis 2. Right rear anti roll bar link loose (almost unthreaded!) 3. Rear brake imbalance 1000 vs 1500 (unknown units) Bit of a shock as car had done just 1500 miles since previous APK. 1. Inspection showed that the very expensiv...

I think it's surprisingly cheap for Europe, but photo's do not show much detail.

Did this ever get made?

Well, I think that Towns design looks like a lump of lard from the front. OK otherwise.
Later Sabre front end much better!

Did you fit it yourself Steve? Then Well done! Surprised that you left the connectors up top - very "Un-Chershire". It's possible to cut the body shell a bit and fold them down underneath the dash. Inside rubber does bulge a bit but pretty invisible see https://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/viewtopic....

Fuel Additive

Not a straight answer to your question, but in The Netherlands we can buy this fuel: competition 102 ® The octane number of competition 102 is 102 which does not contain ethanol Motolab, where can you buy that? I guess about 50% petrol stations around Eindhoven don't even have 98 octane. Luckily th...
