TVR Chimaera in the workshop

By Chris McPheat, Nov 1 2019 05:28PM

The owner of this 1996 TVR Chimaera 500 called today to see if I had room to take it in with a view to looking into a couple of problems in the next few weeks. Today was most convenient for him so I shuffled some vehicles around and he drove it over. It's been oiling up one of the spark plugs and there is a little bit of noise that sounds like the top end. A bit of investigation first, compression test, endoscope the cylinders, that sort of thing. There's also a question hanging over the cooling system so it might be a good idea to just replace the radiator with a more efficient modern one.
