• TR3A Scuttle Vent (air vent) Lid leveling...

    Tony's Tip #3:

    If you replace the Scuttle Vent (air vent) lid and rubber gasket on the top of the front cowl, you might find it won't be level with the ground due to the new rubber gasket being taller than original. One fix for this could be for you to fabricate and install 2-holed thin rectangular SHIMS (as required) between the new lid's hinge and the new rubber gasket, thus raising the rear of the lid so it's level with the ground. Heavy weights placed atop the lid will help set the gasket to the cowl (with the proper silicone caulking) as low as possible so the bonnet doesn't hit the front edge of the lid upon raising the bonnet.

    Perhaps the detent tag was omitted? I've taken a lot of gearboxes apart where these little parts were omitted or missing.

    I'm guessing that's what's going on here. I'm guessing that mine is filling up with hot oil that was accumulating because the manufacturer failed to include

    Illness confirmed

    After weeks fighting the flu I have been thinking about the project in my shop. Found another Spridget - 1965 MG Midget in small town nearby. "Engine locked up"... but it has wire wheels. Photos look...
