Sprint Unobtainium and TR5 Refurbish Parts

After a few weekends away and Stoneleigh last weekend I am hoping to do a little work on the cars this weekend.

Anyway I managed to get some more unobtainium parts for the Sprint engine rebuild

4 NOS rocker arms - I need the other 4, but I do have an unmarked set of secondhand ones to complete the head

I also got a NOS jackshaft sprocket

and a NOS  roller bearing for the nose of the gearbox input shaft - this sits in the crank

As to the TR5 I eventually got the accelerator pedal assembley replated, this has sat on  my desk at work for the past 7 years !

The soft top handles have also been rechromed

and I got the door latches replated

The seat frames have gone off for blasting and powder coating too, so two days spannering ahead

  1. Two days spannering? Have fun! Hopefully we won't have to wait another month for an update!


Where am I?
