    We are allowed on to the show ground after 1200 on the Saturday. I normally get there mid afternoon Saturday which gives me plenty of time to wrestle with the miles of independently-minded GRP poles for my tent.

    Here's an update on JRR from me, still with oil, filter change etc to do tomorrow.

    She's smoking and knocking when cold so driving to the show and back risks trashing the motor completely. It may well be OK if I drive B roads slowly and take 5ltr of oil with me!

    Given that I've pencilled in a transporter to take it there and back again, but two issues;

    1. They can only deliver it later this Friday and collect on Tuesday. Can anyone who knows the organisers check if that's doable? I'd imagine Tuesday pickup is OK but Friday drop off?
    2. Cost, £380 return, ouch!

    I think we should get the car there as it's the 40th of the company and Roadster but that transport price is half the cost of a short engine rebuild kit.

    How much do you the club members want JRR there?

    It won't worry us if JRR is not there. It was built winter 1976 so is older than the Roadsters by a bit. Would be better if it was running properly than wrecking the engine.

    DB, save your money towards the engine rebuild !

    It would be good to see JRR there but not at that price !

    As Liz says, it's a prototype and predated the T cars anyway

    David,

    Is the knocking just on the start up until oil pressure is up??

    If so a lot of Triumphs suffer that from oil filter drain back but seem to survive.

    However I have to agree with the above its not worth wrecking the engine

    if you have doubts about its condition.

    You've got 4 days !!!

    Whip the head and sump off fit new bearings and oil pump
    hone the bores and fit new rings

    so whats keeping you
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    Yes it’s a lot quieter when the oil pressure is up and the engine is warm, still ‘knocky’ though.

    Member Paul has given me a few tips to test compression and try and find out if it’s just stuck oil rings, or maybe valve. I’ll do that tomorrow.
