    Rob

    Appreciate your reply.

    Antique Tyre Supplies are in Victoria and the NSW depot/warehouse/shop closed up over 5 years ago (I have been there and looked at what was on offer), so it looks like my nearest 4ply tyres are about 1,000 klm away (thatís a long walk!!!).
    At least they are in Oz and can be delivered so all I do is take them to be fitted.
    They have 2 correct siz...

    The ecu logging a blocked particle filter is trying to tell you that you have exactly that, a blocked or partly blocked particle filter, the ecu doesn't lie,it's fairly common and caused by not getting long enough highway drives to burn it out clean and also can be caused by faulty glowplugs or a combination of both
    Just blasting around the block won't burn it off it needs a good 1/2 hour at h...

    John,

    TFs originally had Dunlop 5.50x15 cross ply tyres.

    VWs tyres were 5.60x15.

    Dunlop tyres of the TF original size new are no longer available.

    I purchased 5.90x15 Dunlop cross ply from Vintage Tyres Supplies in UK for the TF1500 a few years ago.
    They are also now unavailable.

    Willie's lead to Antique Tyres in Sydney may be worth a try.

    Yes I agree with all that has been said above. As Pete says, the show implied you can remove the 4 wheel nuts and put wire wheels straight on.
    And merely check the alignment to be happy you are selling on a car in perfect condition?
    Iíve not seen the programme before and wonít bother in the future.

    I have discovered that TF4706 is without a speedo cable - one of the few things missing in our collection of parts. Do any of our Australian members have a good spare one I could purchase?

    Nice work Chris!

    A number of forum regulars have spotted a very original MGTF on Bring a Trailer.

    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1955-mg-tf-1500-8/

    This is not the first time this car has been sold recently.

    It is a very complete and original car that will be important for any TF and even TD restorer to view.

    I have created a web page for the car from both it's current and p...

    Hello#have done it some weeks ago,
    all information should be in my blog
    here
    https://www.mgexp.com/forum/t-series-and-prewar-forum.46/mg-ya-no-1675-from-1948.4022768/page-33

    the way i have done it and so on
    perhaps it could help you

  • Greybeard 18 January 2021

    A blocked dpf can give the effect you describe, but it's not necessarily all over if so - dpfs can be cleaned out except in really extreme cases. Lots of places do this, even some Halfords centres.
    But it might not be a dpf problem. Stuttering over a certain rev point is absolutely typical of a fuel pump getting past it and the delivery pressure being too low. I'm not sure if the Dodge has it...

  • FT Franz18 January 2021

    I have found the problem
    two things I know now ;-)

    but I was really close to throwing everything into the corner

    I found the first error quite quickly
    the LED flasher relays are wired a little differently,
    I looked at a few circuit diagrams and then assigned the pins a little differently,

    then the hazard warning lights worked properly,
    when i wanted to tu...
