    TR2/3/3A Re: Triumph tr3 overdrive wiring

    Do you have the transmission in gear? Switches close when in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear. In 1st or [thank God] in Reverse, as well as neutral, they are open so OD doesn't engage.

    Wanted Re: TR3A Fuel gauge

    I had mine rebuilt by Nisonger Insturments in West Chester County, NY. Looks and works like new. I recommend them.

  4. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    I like my arms nearly straight, so actually push it all the way in. I wouldn't have used an adjustable wheel at all if I had a non-adjustable column with little play in the steering. I haven't seen...
  5. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    Hi John,

    I appreciate your comments, but I respectfully disagree. It's possible the old control head I have is not for an adjustable column, since no one knows what a PO has done. I do have a new...
  6. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    Thanks Steve,

    If you enlarge the photo you will see that the bakelite base is in shambles. The cable was not in good condition either.

    The car I am restoring [almost complete!] is the...

    The patient is doing well after successful surgery.....

    I rummaged around and found the control head I had taken out when I dismantled one of the two cars I used to build this one. Here is a...
  8. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    Thanks Steve,

    I will try that today. I did anticipate the oil drainage, but it oozes over the wiring cable, frame et al so still made a bit of a mess despite the container I placed to try to...
  9. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    Steve,

    Yes I believe you are correct. I have an uninstalled standard one for another car I own. The steering wheel is correspondingly deeper though. I can easily get the control head all the...
  10. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    John,

    Thanks for that idea. I tried that, but the tube on the control head is hitting something in the steering column that I can't see (need a laser) and won't let it go in far enough to seat in...
  11. TR2/3/3A Re: Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    Randall,

    Your diagnosis makes sense, but I wonder why the wrong stator tube would be there. The telescoping wheel column and the fixed wheel column are different. There's always the possible...
  12. TR2/3/3A Fitting the Control Head - Telescoping (Adjustable) Wheel

    Trying to fit the new control head I bought at TRF to my adjustable steering wheel. Lining up the slot in the stator tube and the "keys" on the larger tube from the control head, I can slide the...

    Thanks to both of you for your help on this wiring question.

    I'm also retired which has given me the discretionary time to complete my 58 TR3A restoration that I started about 15 years...
  14. TR2/3/3A Re: Wiring ammeter with the British Wiring alternator conversion.

    David,

    I have your sketch but hesitated to follow it since the post I saw with it asked for comments and I wasn't sure it would work. It is a bit like Randall's drawing that he posted later. ...
  15. TR2/3/3A Re: Wiring ammeter with the British Wiring alternator conversion.

    Thanks Randall,

    I was trying to understand this diagram that you previously posted in answer to someone else but didn't know what the various alternator terminals were. My alternator has two...
  16. TR2/3/3A Re: Wiring ammeter with the British Wiring alternator conversion.

    Are you suggesting I could replace the "battery cable" wire from the alternator output with 8 gauge and put the ammeter in that circuit between the alternator and the solenoid terminal?
  17. TR2/3/3A Wiring ammeter with the British Wiring alternator conversion.

    I am finishing restoration of a 1958 TR3A TS31684L. One upgrade I incorporated is the 60 A alterntor kit from British Wiring. All done according to their instructions, but that leaves a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: 3.45 Diff ratio?

    Better top end. The gear ratio is how many times the propeller shaft, i.e, the engine (unless your clutch is slipping badly) turns for each revolution of the axle shaft. In fourth gear, the axle...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3Positive ground conversion

    I was thinking you could easily check if the field was a permanent magnet by seeing if the case is magnetic when the battery is disconnected. Is that right?

    Do the "modern" gear-reduction starters also have wound fields so they are also "bi-polar"?

    TR2/3/3A sealing body seams?

    Is it a good idea to seal body panel seams? I have some 3M Strip Calk [sic] I used on bulkhead panels. Should that also be used on body panel seams, or is it better to leave "dry"? Or is there...
  25. TR2/3/3A Re: Steering Column Support for One-Piece Steering Column

    Thanks guys for the prompt feedback. My frame and body shell are from a 1959 TR3A that had a two piece column originally, that's probably why it has the forward bracket. I have that clamp, but do...
