    (***except I went back to halogen

    on my headlights,
    i just liked their penetration and spread better than LED)

  2. #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.

  3. #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. ...

  4. #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.

  5. #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.
