    TR4/4A Re: door seal channels

    I think any body shop with a stretcher/shrinker machine can do that. My friend has two of them and something called an English Wheel and hed curve those in 30 seconds. Being somewhat tubular and...

    Yes, that seems the easiest. It follows the manual. Valves 7 and 8 in balance.

    TR4/4A Re: No Marks on Timing Gear

    And what about making a dummy tappet? Is that really necessary? shouldn't the pushrods be accurate enough or is it best to adjust everything with the head off?

    TR4/4A No Marks on Timing Gear

    I'll follow the manual carefully, but I'm surprised to see no markings while on my rebuild. Did all new, stock TR4 models have marks on the timing gear?

    I assume I can only mark that gear after...

    TR4/4A Re: Center Console Recovering

    I dropped it off at a shop. They mentioned angle cuts, heat guns and all that, and i can tell it's all beyond my capacity. I admire any skilled artisan, and I think I found one. I'll post the results.

    Well, I took another look. They definitely got the bearings off somehow and then drilled one hole bigger and another relocated for the galley. They may tell me they had no choice. It appears close,...
