Welcome, you will find a lot of good information for your TA22 here on this forum. Make sure you review the FAQ section for links to repair manuals and information about your TA22 which has the early bumpers which maybe a 1974. Here is a link to the repair manuals available from another great site.

Thanks for all theses informations !
:D

My car had a very strange (and uncommun) trim : it's a bi-color yellow with the roof painted with a kind of black resin.
The border between theses two colors is defined with a chrome trim (stock fitted)
is it a special edition or something else ?

Welcome! It looks like your had a vinyl top that was removed. There were a few different designs of vinyl tops. Yours might ended where the lower corners of the windshield are close to the door, top corners of the windshield. or possibly halfway up the roof. Look for a screw hole where a small piece of trim was.

Hi !
I've found these round mark on each piston of my engine.
Is that normal ?
