MOT and May Bank Holiday

MOT for the DHC was booked for the end of April with Anglian Triumph, beforehand I sorted out an earth gremlin in the rear fogs and fitted a new flasher relay, the old one flashed very slowly, the car sailed through. Minor problems seem to be a couple of oil leaks in the usual places, namely front and rear crank seals, and a gearbox oil leak from the remote to gearbox housing, so will live with these for now. 1 major problem seems to be with the left hand rear wheel bearing, which is becoming noisy, this was fitted before the HCR and has only done 1500 miles, I have a spare so will change this week.

Sunday was spent gathering more treasure hunt clues for 21st June, then on Bank Holiday Monday we entered the Broadland MG owners club Heritage run.

This is one of the best organised runs in Norfolk with an entry of 170 cars, the majority MG's, but loads of other classics, this event never seems to attract a large number of Triumphs which is a shame, in fact with 4 TR7,s attending the wedge was the most popular of the Triumph Marque, others where 3 Spitfires, 3 TR6, 1 Dolly 1500, 1 Herald, 1 TR2, 1 TR5, 1 Stag, 1 GT6.

The start was at Caister Life Boat Station with coffee and bacon rolls for all. A good route book was given out with Tulip diagrams, descriptions of interesting places en route, a rally plaque, and vouchers for tea and coffee at the halfway stop.

80 miles later after a little run along the coast, criss crossing of the Broads, along excellent minor roads in dull overcast conditions we finished at Blickling Hall where all finishers received a rally plaque.

We had no wrong turns, plenty of time to stop and view interesting places, and had a few convoy situations as we considered it rude to overtake except when a slow vintage car was in front (or a traction engine)
