Can somone tell me, which part of the Tiger shell did Jenson build, as it seems to me, from the photo's in cat's whiskers 86, body in white, all the mod's were carried out by pressed steel company. The same place as the Alpine. So the argument if it was not done by Jenson it's not a Tiger, does'nt r...

MOT Test new rules

Lot's of changes to the UK MOT test starting January 2012. I will try to list some of the new items, that may effect a Tiger passing it's MOT. To many changes to list all the new stuff, and i don't make the rules. So don't blame me. A battery leaking or insecure. Elecrtrical wiring insecure, damaged...

I liked it, as the shorter Morris track rod end mentioned, is the solution to my tracking proplem, due to the spacers fitted to my steering arm's. So even old technical tip's, still have a place.
would be nice to see a few more, if it can be done.

I worry that the only way, this beyond repair vehicle, will end up on the road again. Is if an unsuspecting Tiger owners car disappear's. Only to turn up again with the reg and vin from this rusted out shell. If a modern, is involved in a smash making it unrepearlable it is now loged as such and can...

Hi Mal Sorry to put a dampner on what you have done, but i can see a small problem when it comes to tracking. Due to the size of spacer's you have used on the steering arm. As to re set the track you will find the track rod end, does not screw on to the track rod enough, as it will bottom out. I use...

Sounds very much like an ignition timing problem to me, are leads on correctly? Allso possible vacuum/air leak for reving on its own. Was it out driving in that 5 min's or just on idle? Check rad is not blocked as well. My car got very hot after head work and that was only a timing issue. Once set c...

HI Mal The coil spring, inside any oil seal all ways face the oil, so if you can see the spring, that faces towards the diff, not easy to tell from your picture. As for removing the front flange on any diff just to change the seal, you should centre pot/mark the nut to the pinion, so as to fit it ba...
