    TR6 Re: TR6 EFI Conversion

    When I was considering EFI for my TR3, I was looking at these throttle bodies from Borla Induction. As it turned out, I got the original SUs dialed in so good with a wide band O2 sensor that I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: such strange thread on gear shift knob

    The parts book for the TR3 doesn't show that any jam nut was ever supplied. I just screwed the knob all the way down and the shift diagram pretty much lined up. That may be one of the reasons for the...

    Yes, not a common size, however, my local machine shop supplier had both the tap and die in stock. I needed to chase the threads on the lever arm as they were messed up quite a bit. The die was too...

    It looks like the only adapters that they have available are for Strombergs and SUs...see link below.

    Besides, replacing Weber down drafts is not necessarily a bad thing. :laugh:

    How do you know they are mixing equally without an O2 sensor??

    In a perfect world, two sensors would be great. But, having one O2 sensor will still yield more than enough info for selecting the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Putting windshield back together

    Actually, those are BA (British Association) threads. The 10-32 screw you used is very close to a 2BA size, which measures 0.185" x 31.4 tpi. A lot of threads smaller than 1/4" on the TR are BA...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Windshield difficulties

    Be careful, if it's the screws that I'm thinking of, the threads are most likely BA (British Association). Very similar in size and pitch to UNF, but not the same. Both pitch and thread angles are...
