    TR2/3/3A Re: Distributor Caps

    My distributor caps (and my coils) are all the old stuff bought mostly on eBay. If you are not in a hurry you can do a bit of bottom-feeding and pick good used or even NOS at a reasonable price.
  2. TR2/3/3A Re: TR3 clutch release bearing... from Home Depot?

    What? No radial tires? And you call yourself a home improvement store?
  3. TR2/3/3A Re: Stock air cleaners and aftermarket air cleaners.

    Foam koozies can add a bit of filtration to the stock filters.

    I am not sure where you look to see light through the stock black can AC filter - but it is hard to imagine a less restrictive device. Like you say - a bug catcher... and just big bugs at that.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Starter or Solenoid

    The 'click' would suggest that the solenoid is most likely working fine & the problem lies elsewhere... but not necessarily the starter.

    I would check that the big cable connections are all clean...

    TR6 Re: No oil pressure

    Yes, that can be the longest 45 seconds of your life... cranking the engine and watching the gauge, waiting (and hoping) for oil pressure to show up.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    I love mountan pass photos (and photos with Fred). So if Fred's diff had leaked it would go to the Atlantic and if the radiator leaked it was bound for the Pacific?

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    That has not been my experience. I routinely drove my TR3A back and forth between Tucson (2700') and Mt Lemmon (9000') w/o any cooling issues. I still drive my TR4 that route at least once a week...

    Spitfire Re: 1980 spit.. 34000 miles unbelievable

    So you finally got it in but had to use a " drive to get it to go? If something was wrong in there (and I suspect there was) I don't think this fixed it. Next oil change may reveal more info.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Throttle linkage cross rod

    Yeah, mine was bent - still worked okay. As Randall notes... probably occurred during and engine pull of a gearbox removal (engine raised too much).

  16. TR2/3/3A Re: Loss of Power - ride of shame on flatbed to the house

    I have given up on new coils, the ones I am using now came off of eBay and are from the 60s - quite reliable. Plus they are the Buck Rogers inspired design Lucas used for the classic Sports coils.

    Do you know specifically what failed? If the casting and bore are sound it seems you could just replace what failed plus new seals while you're in there.
