    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    FWIW, the last time I fought with overheating, the radiator shop said my radiator "flowed fine". After struggling and trying many fixes; I finally took it back and asked them to rod it out anyway. ...

    Re: New HP Laptop SSD

    Yeah, that's how it worked before. But after I did the clean install, the choice was gone. Loaded latest touchpad driver from HP, still no box. Loaded synoptics driver, that brought the choice back,...

    Re: New HP Laptop SSD

    I dunno, I've not been very happy with this HP. Keyboard quit working, got that fixed under warranty, but didn't get it back until warranty expired. Touchscreen quit just a few months after that.

  5. TR2/3/3A Re: Slight clunk in the rear assembly somewhere.

    I'm confused; are you saying the flange moves relative to the driveshaft? That's a serious problem.

    But if it's just backlash inside the differential (pinion turns but wheels don't move), that's...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3A Transmission ID and cover

    Frank, it would help (me) if you would put your commission number in your signature, or mention it in your posts.

    The dipstick was deleted at TS50001, so that is (probably) a later transmission. ...
  8. General TR Re: This Happened Twice (TR6 tranny in a TR3)

    I could answer that, but you wouldn't like it!

    Last year, I carefully rebuilt the hydraulic pump in my 49 Ferguson (with the TR motor). New pistons, new cylinders, new valves, the works. It...

    Re: Firework photos

    The links in Tom's post (which are the same ones I got before) don't work for me, either in his post or from the notification I got before.

    But Greg's new links do work, so I'm happy. Thanks...

    Re: New HP Laptop SSD

    At least in my case, that option is simply not there. Loading the latest touchpad driver from HP didn't bring it back. I found a website that said to load a "precision" touchpad driver from Lenovo;...

    TR4/4A Re: Can't get rear extension off. Help!

    IIRC, there is an alternative. After dropping the countershaft, use a long punch to tap the rear bearing back just a little (with the shaft still in it), then use a "splitter" type puller with some...

    TR6 Re: More fun with Lucas

    To check, run a temporary wire forward to a battery post, or ground you trust. Then check the voltage from the temporary wire to the hot wire at the lamp.

    Sounds to me more like a bad (high...

    At least in theory, you can download a fresh copy of windows 10 from Microsoft, and install it on a machine that originally had Win 10, at no cost. If what I am reading is correct, there is a key...

    TR4/4A Re: Can't get rear extension off. Help!

    Did I remember wrong? I'm pretty sure there is a lip inside the extension housing that means the bearing must come off with the housing.
    But its been a long time since I worked on a nonOD box, so...

    TR4/4A Re: Can't get rear extension off. Help!

    If all else fails, I would probably try to cut that bearing apart with a Dremel and abrasive cutoff blade. Make a notch where you can work each ball out (after cutting the carrier), then you can...

    I believe there is significant truth in that.
    With a traditional hard drive, you pay a significant price in access time for every file fragment. With an SSD, that price is thousands of times...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wire wheel conversion question

    Easy enough to check. After you've mounted the wires and run them for a bit, check for shiny spots on the outside ends of the studs. If they contacted the wheels, you should see definite wear marks. ...

    Ditto. No specification; but I believe lightly oiled is correct.

    Personally, I would re-torque even with ARP studs, just to be on the safe side. Everything moves around just a tiny bit during a...
