  • Even more of an eternity, but I also found your notes helpful. One trick of the trade: if your boot is very tight to fit, try moistening the inside, for about an inch above the rim, with meths. It will stretch nicely if you fit it straight away.
    An old Army trick, for getting issue boots to fit better.

    at the sheer amount of work our Moderator puts into this Forum. As a new 2003 TF 135 owner I've been tracking all the Forums and I've looked hard at this with the idea of some day getting my own pscan. I can only say that however much Paul makes out of his invention it's nowhere near enough!
    Regards, David.

  • Thanks, Bruce, that's exactly what I needed. My 2003 TF135 has had an unpleasantly sticky throttle since I bought it. In traffic it went from too little power to too much in an instant. I followed your advice, found exactly the same problem and fixed it the same way. Now the throttle is perfectly smooth throughout the range, and the car is much easier to heel-and-toe. Couldn't resist painting the assembly while I had it out.


    David.

    Well, I ordered one from Rimmers (postage cost same as manual price) and now they've given me the bad news that they have no prospect of ever getting one. I want a book to keep in the car, but I'd settle for a download in the meantime. How come this is about the only F/TF manual you can't get online? I've got the TF Workshop Manual, and the F Owners Manual for luck, but that's it. I'd welcome any ideas. Or manuals, I suppose.

    In 1970 my wife and I were out in Lincolnshire in our Frogeye ( We were doing a year at Cranwell courtesy of the RNZAF) when there was a sudden, overwhelming smell of petrol. Pulled in, checked under the bonnet and found that the thread in the fuel pump body for the fuel outlet pipe union had stripped. After a little fiddling I discovered that the stubby screwdriver from my toolkit could be wedged against the pipe hard enough to seal it in the pump. So off we went. Six months later I sold the car to a dealer, after it (and the screwdriver) passed MOT. I occasionally wonder what happened after the new owner found and pulled out the stubby.......

  • I'm just in the process of buying a 2003 TF160 and, with lots of regret, selling the 1955 TF I've had since 1967. I'll update my photo when I get the new car.
    My wife finds the old car a bit draughty and bumpy, so it has to go. I must say I didn't much care for the new one on my long test drive, but I hope it will grow on me. I won't get a chance to put it on the track till next year, so we'll see how it goes. I've been racing the old one since 1968, and more recently supercharged it.
    I've already found a lot of interesting hints on this site.
