    TR2/3/3A Re: Differential question

    If you plan to do differential work, you will need a bearing puller like Randall shows. Using a drift to remove bearings during the set-up is asking for trouble with your new bearings. I only have...

  4. TR2/3/3A Re: Loss of Power - ride of shame on flatbed to the house

    Remember the coil is simply 2 windings. The primary side, which you are asking why it cycles with the points, is a rather low number of windings. Power comes into the neg side of the coil (positive...
  5. TR2/3/3A Re: Loss of Power - ride of shame on flatbed to the house

    My guesses:

    Top guess...coil has died. It may even work again when all is cool, but would still be bad.
    Next guess (much lower chance)...the high tension lead to the cap/the cap/or rotor have...

    Yep, the book gives an "initial" advance as a starting point...then it is very explicit in explaining how to perform the final adjustment with a road test.
  7. TR2/3/3A Re: Inner sill or floor pan- which to replace first?

    Do all body work with the body on your frame, after measuring the frame to ensure it is straight.

    I understand what you are saying, however, age has nothing to do with a rebuild. Especially when "brand new" is actually a rebuild from the 1980's. I have retained bearings with tens of thousands...

    Yes...what Randall said! Warm to hot discs after driving is normal, since the valve does keep the pads in light contact with the rotors.
