Too bad you are not a little closer to Arizona, we have a couple “133” cars out here....

Not too far from me and my '133' car! :)

Re: My New Interceptor - '72 Mk 111, 133-5597

I really don't think you need any changes to the wiring. If I remember correctly the Halogen headlights draw less than the standard sealed beams. When I had my sunbeam Tiger I replaced the standard bulbs with Halogen headlights and had no problems and that car had a generator. :)

Re: My New Interceptor - '72 Mk 111, 133-5597

Hi Rocky My car has Cibie headlights in it. Pretty sure they came in the car as the doctor that was the first owner probably did not put them in. There doesn't seem to be any additional/different wiring for them. If you use the basic 60/55 watt bulbs you should not have any problems and will see a b...

Re: usa registration/VIN

Not understanding your question. Usually this information would be from the previous owner or whomever you bought the car from. All 50 states run their own Motor Vehicle Department so getting information will vary depending on the state it was registered in. Hope this helps a bit. :)

Re: Advice needed - to rebuild or not

How many miles are on the car? Is the engine quiet when it is running? Is there any bottom knocks? Very tough engines. Not very common to have a valve issue. Make sure it is not a valve train issue. With zero compression you should be hearing some popping noise either out of the exhaust or out of th...

Re: Advice needed - to rebuild or not

Some basic info is needed. Why are you checking compression? Is the engine running well? Oil pressure? How many miles on the engine? :)

Entire car looks to be very well done at the restoration shop. Underside looks great too. A very desirable car! :)

Looks pretty nice! I hope you plan on removing the Trim Line molding! That is riveted on. What state are you in? :)

Re: Jensen renovation USA

Assuming you are referring to an Interceptor? As with any car it all depends on how much rust there is and where in the country you are. :)

Re: Classic cars on the road

the left hand door front bottom corner does not line up too well. That is the straightest TR7 I've ever seen! Unfortunately for the TR7, those two comments are not mutually exclusive. That TR7 has Arizona plates on it. I am guessing that is the original paint on an unrestored car. Very possible the...

Re: My New Interceptor - '72 Mk 111, 133-5597

Looks like there may be some confusion so just to make this clearer when you put the upper ball joint shims in the front side of the ball joint it moves the ball joint towards the rear of the car. This will increase the positive castor. When you increase positive castor you should get more steering ...

Re: My New Interceptor - '72 Mk 111, 133-5597

Moving the shims to the front will increase positive castor which should give increased steering feel in theory. Weather it will I cant be sure on these cars. I would not recommend putting an offset shim pack on the upper control arm shaft mount as the bolts are so close together I feel they will no...
