    Re: Baseball Hats - Why Pay

    Because "fair" has little or nothing to do with "good business".

    Obviously plenty of people are willing to pay for the privilege of being a walking billboard; so why should the company pay them? ...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Turn Signals Blinking too fast

    Having the wires switched on the front lamp can do it, too. Check that the turn signal is much brighter than the park lamp function.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Over drive

    You need to remove both plugs to fully drain both gearbox and overdrive. Inside the OD plug is a screen and possibly some magnets that should be cleaned as well.

    To test the OD in the car, you'll...

    Don't hold the wire at all; hold the metal shell of the spark plug firmly against the engine head or block and you won't get shocked.

    TR6 Re: Starting

    One test for spark is to remove one spark plug, put the wire back on it, then lay or hold it against the cylinder head so the metal shell is touching the metal of the engine. Then get someone else...

    Some of the people will probably get jail time; Rick Singer has pled guilty but not been sentenced yet.

    I used an in-line holder, hanging off the back of the ammeter. You can see just the end of it, at the top of this photo (taken as I was parting out the wreck).

    TR6 Re: Proper ring gaps

    Too big is better than too small; but correct is better than wrong. Specified end gap is .010" to .015"; at .022" you would be starting with rings that are, in effect, already worn. Probably not...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Over drive

    The fuse protects both wiring and solenoid, but mostly the solenoid. Possibly less important now, as new solenoids are a lot less expensive than they used to be, but still a good idea, IMO.

    Re: "Power Wall"?

    Seems to me there's something wrong with this picture. 3.5kW is quite a bit of power, roughly 3.5 horsepower. Well pumps vary no doubt, but I can't imagine it's more than 1hp. ISTR mine is 1/4hp. ...

    Possible, if you have an early car. They were introduced at TS9593 according to the SPC. The whole shift lever changed at the same time.

    AGC 20 is pretty close. Not exact, the size is slightly different; but it will fit in the TR3 fuse holder and has about the right current rating.

    Something else worth checking sooner rather than later is crankshaft end float. The half-thrust washer is a known weak spot in the TR6, and can wear so badly that it becomes a clutch issue.
