    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Toyota Brake Calipers on my TR3

    I don't know why you should be having a problem. I took the brackets from a TR6 that was being parted out. They look different than the TR3 brackets, but they fit fine. I used the TR3 mounting...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Oil? Oil Pressure?

    Yeah, 20W50 or 10W40 should be fine for the cooler temps in CO. Also, there are concerns by many about the lower amount of ZDDP in modern oils made for cars with O2 sensors, and the effect it has on...

    The '50s & '60s had to be the pinnacle of auto design. I had this 300S as my wallpaper for awhile. It certainly is stunning! The Italians seem to have a way with producing wonderful designs. Yes...

    I agree. I've run across at least two different diagrams of the rib settings, and my final version didn't correspond to either of them.6048460485

    TR2/3/3A Re: Bi-Specticles

    I have wing mirrors and both of them are convex. I had a flat one on the driver's side, but it just wasn't enough coverage, especially if it wasn't adjusted just perfectly. I also added a mirror...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Anyone running NGK spark plugs?

    The "5"s are hotter, which have a tendency to burn off deposits easier than colder plugs. If you are running rich, that may be why the engine is running smoother with the "5"s. I'd also put the gaps...

    TR2/3/3A Re: bonnet safety catch

    You have to be careful with all screw sizes smaller than 1/4" on the TR3. That stud seems to be a 10-32, but if I remove the nut, it will start to screw onto a 10-32 screw, but then stop. It's most...

    I'm not using the Ford solenoid as an aid, but rather as a replacement for the Lucas unit. Here's a picture, and as you can see it is constructed similar to the OE unit and it works the same way.

    I also used a kit from TRF, but it was about ten or twelve years ago, so I don't remember which one it was or if they even had different grades back then. Actually, I got the whole interior from them.
