Body looks pretty clean. Does it have a fuel cell?
I have a bunch of information on TR8 coupes and a list of over 200 known coupes that I can share. Just send me an email to macdonaldp at rogers.com if you are interested.
Very cool, looks like a fun project. Is it a factory 8 or was it converted? If it has a VIN number it would start with ACN or TCN if it came from the factory with the 8 cylinder. Also more pictures...
All installed and bled and (drum roll please!) ...a working clutch. Yay!! Took the car for a run down the block and it appears to be working. When I started it after the clutch install, about the...
Update, dropped the transmission and took out the clutch. measured the height of the clutch fingers off the flywheel got 2.5 inches. Tr8 standard configuration is supposed to be 2.25 inches. Ordered...
$5K ....where do I sign. Wow some serious fabrication skills. Is that some kind of Lotus or a kit car?
Looks like aftermarket disc brake conversion on the axle. Really liking this build.
That looks terrific, will be following your progress.
The TR7 race car had them, but also lots of reinforcements. They were Carrera QA1s

I have had a limited success. Installed the new master and could not get a pedal, just felt like nothing. Was about ready to give up and read somewhere that pump it quickly and short strokes for...

No, tried it a couple more times, lowered the back of the car, used my old ezebleed pressurized set up (pumped half a bottle of brake fluid on the floor), think I will bring it to a local shop next...
Just finished the break in of the cam, 2000 rpm for 20 minutes, got to just over 3/4 on temp gauge. Not too bad considering it is about 95 degrees in...
Interested to hear how you route the braided clutch line. Angled end at the master? Then over and behind the brake booster?
Figured it out...all is good.
You will be mobile before long.
Almost ready to install engine, trying real hard.
Getting there slowly
D&D, Mark did the heads and rockers. Thought I would go with him, since the rest of the engine has his stuff.
