    Steve, thanks for these pointers, I telephoned Bob West last night to discuss, Bob repeated exactly what you mentioned about the rear oil seal. After listening to all the sides of the argument and reading up online, I finally made the decision to change over to the 1800 unit with 5 mains, and have asked Bob to look for an engine for me. Then we can move ahead on a full rebuild. Bob said that his e...

    Back to tools...nothing beats an adjustable crescent wrench...doesn't matter if it's if its metric, SAE, BSF, Whitworth...whatever...that adjustable crescent wrench has taken it off or tightened it up at least once.

    On original,right hand drive TFs I have restored in Australia,the original rear upholstery panel/wood screw holes was indicative of the handle being on the passenger,near side of the car. The reasoning of the Factory was perhaps that the Driver could extract the handle more safely from the CURB side without his 'bottom' being wiped off by passing traffic!!

    I want to install my new voltmeter to a switched/ fused power source.
    I've heard about such gauges being jumpy if not wired correctly, so I'm looking for advice on where to power from.

    Ive seen glances of your front suspension and looked on your website but cant find it..
    Could you put up some pictures of that ?

    Tommy, You have told us about quite a few products now, do you have a website with pictures and details ?

    I think we all should encourage people who have the energy to get parts manufactured (or make them themselves) and make them available to us...

    Forgive me , but apart from the above I think the best tools are : common sense, patience, a deep pocket. Not particular in this order.
    Sorry could not resist.

    My iPad! I have a fully stocked three bay garage with a two post lift. I have music or the radio (app) playing all the time, can answer emails on the fly, and bring it to whatever I am working on. I can take a digital picture, pull up a PDF diagram, workshop manual or forum for whatever I am working on. Often, it is this forum.

    I recently bought my wife a nice silver TF soft top, unfortunatly she had a slight bump and decided that she didnt want it any more.
    So I have silver 2005 TF with only 30k miles that has easy repairable damage to the drivers side front wing, This would be a cheap nice winter project for somebody that appreciates the car.
