    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    I just checked mine. They are 7/16. I suspect you have the wrong tie-rod ends and the taper is not fitting into the steering arm, so you don't have much thread, or they're just a lot shorter than the...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    Hmmmm....you really should have had plenty of thread when you started the nut. Are you sure that the taper is fully seated in the steering arm? It's possible that the part is not made right or it's...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    The whole point is that you compress the rubber buffers completely against the flange on the steering rack's tube, then install the square washers underneath, so the rack is held firmly in place. I...

    Rut, I do hope things work out for you. It's good to have you here among us.

    TR4/4A Re: rebound stop clearance issue

    Since it doesn't have the body on it yet, the suspension will be at or close to the limit of its travel. When you have more weight on it, you'll compress the springs more and can then evaluate it a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: More pics of Kast Cam

    Your first three pics are still pretty blurry, so I can't say anything about the lobe next to the gear. In the other three, the lobes have a couple tiny spots that might be slight pitting (or might...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Kast f cam...301466

    As for wear, it's almost always obvious: pits, chips, and striations. I have seen camshafts reground so deeply that the heel of the cam is actually below the surface of the shaft, which would be a...

    Does anyone have any experience with KYB shocks on a TR? I ask because they are a cheap option for the Porsche 912, and the 912 community universally reviles them. I think the problem is less the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: 30a 5 pin universal relay

    I pay $4-$5 for name-brand relays. They're just not an expensive part; in the costs of these cars, that's a sneeze in a hurricane. So, I'm good with it.

    TR2/3/3A Re: 30a 5 pin universal relay

    When I buy those relays, I try to find ones that are a name brand, so there is a data sheet with specifications they must meet. Without that, it's likely that the consistency is poor, which could...
