Saturday afternoon and I'm still here!

I'm just putting the finishing touches to a differential for the local TVR specialist, which means I'm still here long after the shop closed! He's desperate bless him, car is on his ramp in bits and in the way, punter is on the blower every 5 minutes, etc. Not really sure what sort of TVR it's from? In another life I recognise it as a 3.89 4 stud Spitfire diff, with a strange fabricated front carrier on it? The diff he brought along that was taken from the car wasn't even worth starting with as it had been run dry. As you can imagine it was a bit of a mess inside and fit only for the scrap bin. I have to get a move on because I'm under strict instruction to get home at a reasonable time as we have tickets booked at the picture house for that film the D'vinchy Code or something, seems like a good excuse to catch up on some sleep to me!


  1. Funny how the owner cares about his car enough to phone the TVR specialist every five minutes, but not enough to actually refill the oil in his diff once in a while!

  2. Hi Dave,

    Spitfire diff on a TVR, I didn't think that it would be able to handle the torque? Are you telling me that there is hope yet for me using my rebuilt 3.63 with my v8 conversion?
