    TR2/3/3A Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    Remove the jet and inspect it. Originals used a blind hole in the center, but I've seen reproductions that have the jet drilled through, then a plug put in that also retains the clevis for the choke...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    If the rubbers aren't compressed, you can get sloppy steering from the rack moving around while cornering.

    Dig around and find a service manual that suits your model. They are usually designed to be taken apart with very little room to work in, beyond that required to operate the machine. Top-loaders,...

  10. TR2/3/3A Re: What is the name of this bracket and is it still avaiable?

    The SPC calls it a "stay, fascia panel to battery box", P/N 601939.
    I don't know of anyone reproducing them, but used originals should be easy to come by. They rarely fail or get damaged.

    TR6 Re: Front shocks

    I checked RA, they don't seem to have front shocks for a TR6. Or a TR3 for that matter.

    So, I guess you either buy cheap shocks, or expensive ones.
