View Full Version : New Member 1960 TR3

I wanted to join because I have many questions about my TR3. I purchase it almost a year ago and I really enjoy driving it. I do not have a manual for it. If you can answer a few questions, I would appreciate it.

1) How do you turn on the heating system? Will I have to add more fluid to the radiator?

2) How do I winterize this car? It will be in a heated garage. Should I run it every month?

3) I have a brake fluid leak, and I almost ran it dry. Now the front wheels stick a little. Do I need to bleed the brakes, or are these unrelated?

Thanks all

Looking forward to hear response,

Welcome- If memory serves right your TR3 should have disc brakes up front? If so your calipers might be stickin a little, doesn't sound like it's related to running the fluid low? Do the brakes have good pressure now?

Presure is good. When I stop at a light, or stop sign, the car won't roll. Ocasioanlly I can can hear metal scaping metal.
