  1. #18 steering box leaking....again.

    After having my steering box rebuilt by Macy's garage,
    (It looks like they did a good job BTWand getting it all put back together and buttoned down nice and snug; happy with the wheel play and movement lock to lock.
    I was surprised and disappointed to find a small leak in front of the box where the stator tube exits.
    ( one of the same leak points as before the rebuild.)
    teflon tape didn't help, tightening or loosening the collar didn't help. A close inspection of the most ...

  2. #17 Replacement sleeve for Moss dampener crank pulley

    had been waiting on a replacement part from Moss for 3 weeks.
    The original sizing sleeve (fits on the crank pulley boss, to resize it to a TR3A timing cover/oil seal) that shipped with my narrow belt conversion had rust blemishes and dings on it. Apparently a common problem for Moss.(BTW: I was dealing with Mack at Moss & he was very helpful. One question I posed to him is "why doesn't Moss pre-mount the sleeve on the pulley for The TR conversion kit?"
    ....no answer......, ...

  3. #16. Facet electric fuel pump placement.

    The conundrum of the facet fuel pump
    ( from Moss ) is finding the optimal place to mount it on a TR3. It is not something I gave any thought to when I ordered it. And it was only after I removed the mechanical AC pump, that I realized it may be an issue.

    The facet pump is a cube with ear flanges top/bottom.
    the problem is : it doesn't fit the rather narrow TR3 chassis, unless you angle it( which would work, by the way, as mounting on a 45 degree angle is recommended ) ...

  4. #15 AC Fuel pump removal

    Seems like every one derived there own trick for removing the back nut (or bolt) on the AC fuel pump. my pump was made in Canada,
    so I doubt it was original(pls correct me if I'm wrong). & may not have met original specs.
    it was leaking gas at the bowl seal & the top, it appeared to have a hair line crack in the top, probably from one of the screws being over tightened.
    i went back HF today and bought a 1/2" crowfoot open end(3/8" drive) & that worked for ...

  5. Ignition keeps cranking

    I have a 1977 MGB...When I turn the ignition key to start car, the starter keeps cranking and does not turn off even after I turn the key to off position. I have to disconnect the battery in order to stop the car from cranking.
    Does anyone have any thoughts or possible solution?

    Thank you
