Description

The TR4 represented a new breed of British sports car. Its modern lines, and accessories, such as wind-up windows and face-level ventilation, were a big departure from the earlier TR3 models. While TR4 mechanical parts may not have been new, the introduction of IRS (independent rear suspension) on the TR4A set a new benchmark for sports cars of that era. Performance was solid, if not spectacular, with 109 mph attainable in overdrive top, and these TRs found a ready market in all parts of the world. Now nearly 60 years old, the TR4 and TR4A still attract a huge following worldwide.

This book is designed to offer owners and potential owners of these cars an insight to the common problems that can arise and how to fix them, and often making an improvement at the same time. Arranged into easy to follow sections – engine, driveline, suspension, etc – you can see not only where the problems arise, but how to solve them. Information is also provided on owners’ clubs and spares suppliers to help keep your car in good condition and on the road.

The author

Paul Hogan has owned TRs for over 40 years, including three TR6s. While serving his apprenticeship working on Jaguars and Healeys he stripped down his own TR to the last nut and bolt and rebuilt it from the ground up. The fact that this car is still in excellent condition is testament to the care he lavished on it at the time. A former Chairman of the TR Register, Paul helped to raise the profile of the TR range through racing his own TR at Le Mans, and he has experienced many of the problems described in this book on his own cars.
