    Thanks, guys. I've decided to abandon the existing wire in place and install a new full-length wire outside the wrapped bundle and re-wrap it, per the suggestion of an MGE mate. You are right about damaged wire further into the bundle. If there is still a problem, then replacing the entire front loom is the ultimate solution.

    My 51 TD was also originally Autumn Red and I found large areas of original paint behind undercoat on fenders. I have pictures but the color changes from one computer to another. Here is a link to the thread regarding my findings with a pic of the can and formula. It is very similar to Chris Bennett's color.

    I have two original early TD 20 amp ammeters & both require a pointer. I just need the part as I'm able to easily replace it myself. Any idea where I can purchase a couple of pointers? Both instruments have the pivot grub screw. Cheers

    Cam, higher octane makes for a slower more even burn. This eliminates 'ping'.

    Everyone remember "No Knock"?

    Clip, huh? My PO had them passing through the hole in the front engine plate.

    Live and learn.

    Your carburetor isn't dribbling gasoline. It must be empty.

    Moss has those parts.

    I used Hylomar and the Abingdon Spares gasket, no leaks yet.

    I bought a 76 TR6 from my neighbour who was moving. I assured him I was going to restore it but when I got into it I ended up selling it for what I paid to a fellow who deals in parts both new and used.

    It had patches on top of patches, holes, no inner body panels under exterior, seized engine and a lot of rust.

    I suppose it could have been fixed up but it was too far gone body wise ...

    By the looks of it, even if it ran, it would fall to pieces if you tried to move it. I'm thinking of the Dodge Monaco from the Blues Brothers film that fell apart when they arrived to pay the orphanage taxes in Chicago.
