    TR2/3/3A Re: Cam follower rotation

    Yes liters should rotate. But taper and radius comments is not true if discussing OE parts, both cam and lifters are ground flat if original equipment parts are being used however many aftermarket...

    He's not looking for the link, he needs the aluminum distance piece between the spring and the axle. Mounting location broke.

    TR4/4A Re: A type OD working in 3rd but not in 4th

    I had a similar issue which was finally traced to a loose ground wire that attached to the transmission top cover. It was frustrating in that it didn't always drop out of OD.

    TR4/4A Re: Reducing Chassis Flex on TR4A IRS

    A few years ago I saw a TR6 race car without a cage or any obvious additional strengthening that handled like it was on a rail. The only observation was a series of large pop-rivits spaced pretty...

    TR4/4A Re: What radiator do I have?

    It looks like someone blocked off an inlet on the far left of the top tank. Same location as a TR6 so perhaps a TR6 modified somehow. Take a look at the side mounts on the radiator frame, perhaps...

    TR6 Re: Clunking noise in rear continuing

    I think you may have found the problem if you can't remove the spinner. Get it off and inspect the splined adapter and wheel. Jack up the car and have someone apply the brakes then see if you can...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wiper Motor Troubleshooting

    Exactly, I did this on my TR4A (systems are basically the same) and it made a huge difference, my wipers now have distinct 2 speeds and work very well.

    TR4/4A Re: Starting without Transmission attached

    Good.
    Were you able to see the leak with the flywheel attached? Or did you need to remove it to see the leak? Was it the 2" plug at the rear of the camshaft or the smaller oil gallery plug?...

    TR4/4A Re: Starting without Transmission attached

    I don't think the test running will reveal much. With the flywheel attached and it has to be attached, you won't be able to see any leak from the rear seal. If you're going that far then pull the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Loosen engine

    I think everyone is overthinking this. If it's frozen it's most likely the rings. Put some light oil in through the plug openings and let it sit for a week. Put enough in that it will soak down...

    I've run .090 off 3.30 for maybe 40 years. Recent head gasket failure has me at .103 off. We shall see how that works out. At .090 93 octane worked fine. May need to retard timing some for current...
