    TR2/3/3A Re: Control Head/Stator tube orientation

    The one I measured the other day was a little less than 3/32" (.085"). Length depends on whether you have an adjustable or fixed wheel. The one I measured is for a fixed wheel, slot is about 1-3/4"...

    General TR Re: Main bearing caps

    Like having the washer pinned to the cap. This is a common racing modification for Spitfire and TR6, and a lot cheaper than line boring.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Radiator drain tap?

    Sorry, don't know for sure offhand. I thought it was 1/4" NPT, as that's what my radiator shop always puts in and it seems to seal fine. But you can often get away with a slight mismatch with...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Control Head/Stator tube orientation

    Sounds like you've got the base plate attached to the head wrong. But it really shouldn't matter. Leave the gland a bit loose, get the dimples engaged in the slot, then turn the head and stator...

    TR6 Re: Ignition Switch-73TR6

    Again, I'm almost certain that switch won't have the appropriate contact for the ARV (hot only when the ignition is off). You can either live without it, or add a relay to make it work.

    If you...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Radiator drain tap?

    Original tap? It's just a solid body with a tapered hole where the tapered plug fits. On the bottom is a shaped washer, spring, and cotter pin. Remove the cotter pin, and collect the spring and...

    TR2/3/3A Re: stock fog light

    If you really need a fog light, you should be using it without the headlights. The whole point of a fog light is to not reflect back from the fog (as much), so having the headlights on defeats the...

    TR6 Re: Ignition Switch-73TR6

    My suggestion is to use an ohmmeter or continuity checker to record the logic of the switch you have. Lucas made an awful lot of different switches, some of which look identical (but aren't). So...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Draftt seals

    On the early doors, the seal does turn the corner at the front and have 2 more clips on the front of the door. There's also an extra hole at the (square) back edge, compared to your later door. I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Cracked Welds on Steering Idler Arm

    Must be my eyes, I don't see any cracks. Typical ****ty tack welds (which are just reinforcement for a press fit), but they don't look cracked to me.

    And I agree with Steve, the idler doesn't do...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wiring 1954 TR-2

    For negative ground, the lead from the distributor would go to the - terminal.

    "Buzz out" is just slang for doing continuity checks.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wiring 1954 TR-2

    1) For positive ground, the dist lead goes to the "+" terminal.

    2) My suggestion is to "buzz out" the wires to the control head. You'll need something that will test for continuity, a DMM set to...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Triumph TR3 cam shaft measurement

    For a driver, I would just do a visual inspection. If there's no obvious damage, it's almost certainly good enough.

    I have been known to repair TR3 fuel tanks with soft solder, and in one case a patch cut from a 'tin' can. No reason you couldn't braze or weld, that was just the method I had available at the time....

  17. TR6 Re: Carb Vacuum Port- TR6 Zenith-Stromberg Carbs

    Not the same. A growler is specifically for testing armatures, by applying a strong AC magnetic field to the armature. If a winding has an internal short, current flows through the short, which can...

    Right. If you have the option, it might be better to look for one in better condition. If not, at least double-check that there is no continuity between the commutator and the shaft (which would...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wiper motor armature

    The classic material was varnish, but I'd probably use JB Weld or similar.

    From the looks of it, that armature has been overheated pretty badly, which is why the fiberboard pieces are breaking.
