Re: P2 tourer at Brightwells

The #58 car (& #110) will be at MK over the weekend. 110 had a problem with slow running due to a blocked Slow running jet, but was made worse by a very feeble spark. Fortunately it appears to have been the 80 year old coil, as a replacement coil seems to have done the trick and cured the backfire o...

Trim Information

I have started on the trim on #58 tourer now that the doors fit properly and most things work! I have decided to save everything that I can possible from the original (even the overpainted fabric) . In brief the carpets are totally gone apart from the toe board and the section under the back seat. T...

Re: Hand tools P2 etc

I now have a complete tool tray,thanks to the bay of E! Two are even correctly branded.
This car came with two jacks…one with a handle to wind it up/down,, the other uses the (sloppy fit) wheelbrace
Anyone know which is correct for 1947? I imagine it is the wheelbrace version.

Re: P3 75 floor panel fixing

Re: Hand tools P2 etc

A plug spanner is listed separately, but it does seem logical…however a long tubular plug spanner is not suitable for removing plug no 4 as it catches on stuff on the bulkhead on my car! Ref. Manufacturers, my post isa bit misleading in that Snail etc I think only made/ branded the open end spanners...

Re: Hand tools P2 etc

Sounds logical…
“Someone” will surely know about the tubular one!
I think they were mostly made by Snail,but I think Superslim also were used, but I may be mistaken

Hand tools P2 etc

There is quite a lot of information on this site, but I have a basic question. In the tool list in the workshop manual there are spanners 3/16x1/4 (2705): 5/16x 7/16 (2706) (both open end) and 3/8 single end (2712). There is also a mysterious box spanner (52485) size unspecified! as well a a plug sp...

See my reply. Please let me know if I can help…I have a friend in Osnabrück with a TR4A who’s been rebuilding an XK120 coupe and has become very familiar with the local TUV…….
