  1. 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.

  2. 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...

    General TR Re: Dot 4 Brake Fluid

    _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.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Crankshaft Thrust Washers

    Yes, have to have two half-washers per side, total of 4 pieces. IIRC the crank hits something else, so motion measured without washers installed doesn't mean much.

    There is a bypass line from the side of the thermostat housing down to the water pump housing. It allows for some coolant flow through the engine even with the thermostat fully closed (blocking flow...
  12. TR2/3/3A Re: understanding the float and needle set up better

    Maybe I'm not understanding the question. The float is supposed to ride on top of the fuel level in the bowl, if the level starts to sink then the float sinks as well and lets the float valve open a...

    I didn't mean to say they don't have the inner; only that the LH thread should be on the outer end. The inner end, with the RH threads, is P/N 110467 and they show it as available as well.

    Worth a try I guess, but I don't hold much hope that the JB Weld will hold. My idea would be to take it all back apart and braze them together, but that's a lot of work.

  16. TR2/3/3A Re: understanding the float and needle set up better

    The problem is that the flow into the bowl needs to exactly match the flow out of the bowl. The flow out of the bowl varies widely under different conditions, and if the flow into the bowl doesn't...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Tierod Dyslexia?

    "Clockwise" depends on which way you look at it. If you think of the tie rod as being the wall (making the tie rod end be the hands of the clock), then it's clockwise (the direction the hands move...

    One end of each tie rod is left-handed threads. So it turns the opposite of the usual direction to loosen.

    Since it's already damaged, you might find that a "flare nut" wrench will help grip it...
