    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3 Piston Sleeves

    Sounds good to me. They do go in easy if everything is clean.

    I would measure the protrusion on both sides, as I've had two engines in a row now where the deck isn't quite level. But I don't see...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel gauge readings?

    I put an early TR4 temp gauge in my TR3, so I've kind of been through this :)
    It's interesting to note that Smiths made both types of gauges, but Triumph chose the ones that need the VS. I assume...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel gauge readings?

    The later gauges (TR4 through at least TR6) work on a 10 volt supply, not battery voltage. The "voltage stabilizer" (a very poor name IMO) is what supplies the 10 volts.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel gauge readings?

    So, check the voltage coming out of the stabilizer, with the circuit complete (gauge and sender connected). If it is less than 10 volts, then the gauge will probably read higher when the battery...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel gauge readings?

    With reading that low, I'm pretty sure you've got something else going on.

    Is the stabilizer an original type (thermal) unit, or an aftermarket solid-state unit? The original type will work...

    General Tech Re: Spitfire overdrive, the sequel

    Should be same as my Stags, which take an extra-thin 1" wrench to remove the solenoid. I started with a cheap open end wrench, then milled both sides of the head to get it thin enough, and cut the...
  8. Re: I'm Sick of Seeing People Wearing Masks!

    I've been hearing a lot of that kind of logic. I agree, nothing is a 100% barrier. But if wearing a mask gives only a 1% chance of stopping an infection that might be deadly otherwise, I'm going to...

    There is only one mark, which should be TDC (unless someone has assembled the pulley wrong).

    TR2/3/3A Re: Access to trafficator

    With a standard steering wheel, there are 3 small "grub" screws (what I would call setscrews) that go in through the steering wheel hub and lock the control head into place. But I don't see them in...
  12. Re: Distancing task #1 - anyone know about ripping DVDs?

    Check your player, there should be a way to turn off subtitles that aren't "forced", even if they are in the MKV. They take up almost no room in the MKV, so no real need to delete them.

    I'm not...

    FWIW, any office supply place can sell you reinforcements for the holes. Basically a round piece of clear adhesive tape, with the hole already punched. I use two of them, one on each side, so they...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wiper motor hookup

    Good. I'm glad you got it worked out, Jim. It's easy to get confused with all the different wiring schemes.
  15. TR2/3/3A Re: Turn signal and control head memory refresh.....

    Mine only sticks out by 1/2" or maybe 3/4" tops. No doubt there is some variation, but 2" would make me wonder if the upper end is properly engaged.

  16. TR2/3/3A Re: Bubbling in brake reservoir. No pressure in lines

    Do you get fluid and bubbles in the reservoir when pressing the pedal? If so, definitely a bad MC.

    But if they only happen when you release the pedal, you may have some other problem. If the MC...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wiper motor hookup

    First of all, you've got it wired backwards (but that's not the only problem).
    Terminal 1 should ground through the switch (BG), terminal 2 gets power from the fuse block (G). Check page 48a at...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Dash Lights

    Well, maybe. It means you'll be operating them a little below their design point. That generally causes longer life, but less light output. And since they are rated at 2.7 watts, it might put them...

    _All_ DOT 3 and DOT 4 are synthetic and always have been; they aren't refined from petroleum. The reason some say "synthetic" on the can is just marketing hype, to get you to pay more for them.
