View Full Version : TR2/3/3A 1961 TR3A's Nuts, Bolts and Screws

04-29-2018, 08:55 PM
I'm slowly getting the under dash/hood pieces blasted and painted and ready for installation on my 1961 TR3A BUT...
They were all removed when I acquired the car, therefore I don't have all the hardware to re-install them. I was going to buy a tumbler to clean up what I have and then purchase the remaining nuts, bolts and screws.
Long story short; I'm looking for a list of hardware and diagrams on where/how all the pieces parts go back together.

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

fwiw...I have dealt with this by cleaning up the old stuff that I have; using the parts catalogue as much as I can, since it gives dimensions for much of the hardware, and I can get most of it from our local fastener shop: and getting the rest, at much greater cost, from Moss or TRF: but I suspect there are better sources. Re-use of nylocs is forbidden by most, and lock washers by many. Fastener shop can also match a sample if you have one. General purpose auto shops have not been so helpful here.

Here's a copy of the Standard Triumph Hardware catalog. It breaks all the hardware down by type and size. Together with the Spare parts Catalogue, you should be able to identify most of the hardware. The Spare Parts Catalogue is available from TRF, part #501653. I've also seen it from other places online for less money than TRF.

Also, here's a version of the hardware catalog with bookmarks to make things easier to find.

FWIW, part numbers with 6 digits instead of the two letters followed by 3 or 4 digits are "special" in some way. Unless absolutely necessary, I would suggest buying them from the usual suspects rather than the local hardware store.

Piggy-backing on Randall’s suggestion, Macy’s Garage has nut-bolt-screw sets in stainless steel for TRs. See:

I bought the kits from TRF which were easier than trying to sort and clean everything, in my humble opinion.
