    TR2/3/3A » Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    I do that too. I took the assembly back off and cannot see a problem. The only thing maybe is the little brass washer did let the lower assembly fit a little low, but I do not know if that matters,...

    TR2/3/3A » Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    Thanks Randall makes good sense. I guess I do not know what really makes the assembly seal if not the gland washers. The ones I used were like a synthetic cork. I can never get those O rings to...

    Pre-War » Re: my hood problem got worse!

    Sorry for the post in pre-war “Freudian slip.” I ended up using a grinder with a green stone. It cut right through the paint and metal quickly with no problems the hood slid over. I did put some tape...

    I was not thinking of the vertical link. I was thinking about how they pin across in the front. Doesn’t TR4 use a bolt? Anyways, maybe the weight of the tub, fender, and hood do make a bigger...

    Sure the cowling basically cantilevers out from the tub, so it is weak. The inner kick panel is the support for the cowling, so the arc stays the same. Taking off the outer sill IMHO will not let you...

    Steve, did you use a band clamp with something under it? Or a large wood clamp, say 4 feet, and go from side to side with something on that to protect the paint?
