Thought some of you older members might enjoy an Up Date pic of the TVR, It has been running in Classic series for over 15 years now, 13 of those on the same engine & just finished this season with 8 wins I think. In that time its managed to fail a roller lifter ( due to error in setting valve lash ), dropped one exh valve ( due to minor machining difference of keeper groove on valve stem that allowed rocker to contact valve retainer, that's what you get for trying to be kind and giving it a new set of valves-had to chuck the old ones back in during an all nighter ) and spun a rod bearing with initial wet sump. Its had a few prangs during that time, but not enough to kill it. Have not worked on it myself since 2012, health issue slowed me up for a while. Credit for pic to Phil Dickie from NZ.
