View Full Version : What to do now.....

I came home for lunch a few minutes ago and find this parked in my driveway. Now what to do. The friend with the "free TR3" came through and gave me the engine/tranny from his old, rotted TR3. Even had his men throw together a quick engine dolly. I don't know if it is something that I really want to fool with. What would J...s do? I can't really give it away, he would have his feelings hurt. Guess I'll put a wrench to it and see what I have to work with. The tranny looks like it has an A-type overdrive hanging off the back. Should be interesting. I'll keep ya'll posted on what happens next. (Like I need this right now.)

Bill-

I think you have no choice but to find the rest of the parts to fit around it.. I thought I had a good lead for you (check link), but found out it was already sold! Seems someone had stuffed a 289 engine in a TR3, your engine/tranny would have been perfect..

I agree with Randy ... you need to find the rest of a TR3 to put around it! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I think we need to build the snot out of it!!!!

Can you get 150hp out of a TR3 mill? I say we give her a drink and see what happens!

Cool! Wish someone would drop stuff off at my house like that. I've even got room in my driveway now! (Just moved the TR4 frame to storage, that the neighbors had been enjoying for the past few months.)

If you do any parting out, let me know! I'd particularly like to get a set of H6 SUs, stubby TR3 shift lever and wouldn't mind another early A-type OD if it were affordable (yea, right)!
