  1. #38 brake fluid change & clutch repair

(could be another method to increase brake part sales, but it confirmed what Marv & CJD pointed out). I will plan on DOT 5 conversion, when the car dictates.

  2. #37. TR3 arm rest review

    My wife and I are planning a drive up the blue ridge parkway & Smokey Mt. next week.
    i wanted a convenient place to store the necessary "small stuff". So I purchased this arm rest console from Moss (catalog #643-895) for what proved to be a premium price of $129.99.

    first the short list of the Good:
    it will do.
    it does fit.
    First appearances are good. ...

  3. #36. K&N air filters #56-9327

    After finding a reference or two in the forum & looking at the K&N web site. I was pleased to find these SU H6 compatible cotton fibre K&N filters.

    they are not offset, so my first thought was " they will not clear the float bowl".
    but that was not an issue. They fit nicely & look good & though it may be my perception, seem to make the TR3A run better, with quicker starts & more responsiveness at the accelerator.

  4. #35 new coil remains the old problem

    Trying to give the new pertronix flamethrower III 45k volt 03.2 ohms coil the benefit of the doubt, I purchased the compatible pertronix wires.

    & it seemed to work, ran smooth & strong for about 2 hrs. Then the familiar hesitation & missing again.

    so I've shelved that coil for good & went back to the gold colored Lucas racing coil.
    While it does solve the problem, I have to admit I really liked the extra pep of the pertronix coil.

    The strange thing is the hesitation start after about 45min. of open road driving & gets progressively worse, until I feel lucky to make it back to the garage.
    today, I warmed the car up before the test (I had already tuned the carbs, to balance the mix and airflow, independently and sync'd ....I've done this so many times, now, it feels like i know what i'm doing)

    and the drive started off great, all
