Did you wash & wax your Triumph TR4/TR4A, or drive to a scenic viewpoint?
Fire it up for the first time after a rebuild or make an in-car or drive-by video?
Maybe it's just a nice day and you feel like using that fancy new camera...

This picture was taken in front of the famous Biggers Antiques in Chamblee GA. This is a converted church dating to the early 1900s. There is an amazing collection inside, most of which is rented out as set material to the new movie industry in Atlanta. Alas, no TR4 parts.

Hah,Rob, my fault. Should have known you guys notice everything! I actually did not notice it when I attached the little thumb nail photo. More fixing I had to do caused by the Rocket Scientist who restored the car. The hood gap was off kilter,rubbed and never did close right. Did not take me long to realize the idiot made his own hood hinge on one side. Half Triumph part/half moron! He should have had a parts car like I have to pick from. Have a list in the glovebox that came with the car,over 2000 dollars spent on bits. What was spent on rubber floor mats could have bought a new hinge. Some people,I tell ya!

Fired up the TR4 today. The fenders are rattling and the rear end vibrates because the doors haven't been put on and adjusted yet and things aren't bolted up. This car had sat since the 1980's when obviously someone had made some mistakes. The points didn't open, the ignition was wired wrong and the trans wouldn't go into gear. Took a few tries, but got 'er started. Of course, I forgot to tighten up the oil pressure gauge, so had some cleanup to do. I haven't adjusted static timing or checked valve adjustment. just wanted to make sure things would work before buttoning up a restoration. Need to polarize the dynamo - I hope that's all it is.

I took a few minutes to static time the engine. That calmed the rpm down. It now idles like a Harley at 600 rpm and sounds much better. Next is to check the valve adjustment.

To static time, you set the #1 piston to TDC by turning the engine until the pointer is on the small hole (timing mark on the pulley) Check to make sure the distributor rotor is pointed to #1 (toward front of the car) Set the adjustment wheel to midway on its travel (and turn a bit more until a division line just appears). Loosen the distributor clamp and attach a 12 volt bulb by leads from ground to the wire going from distributor to coil. Turn the distributor slowly back and forth until you find a point where either way the bulb glows or goes out. Lock the distributor with the clamping bolt. Now turn the advance adjuster anti-clockwise until one full division appears.

Adjust rpm at the throttle stops by turning the small screw. Turn them both equal amounts in 45 degree increments. Shoot for 600-650 rpm. Now with a piece of tubing from your ear to the carb intake listen to the hiss. If one is higher pitched that carb is open a bit more in relation to the other. Loosen the clamp between the carbs, adjust and then re-tighten.

Idle should be smooth and even. (I know you guys already know this but it's fun anyway)

How much chrome can we get on a red sports car? As much as possible.
