    TR2/3/3A Re: Questions on fuel pump installation

    I would feel much more comfortable with the 5/8 thread length but I think the 3/8 would be OK. You certainly don't want them too long as the hole in the block does not go through and is about 3/4"...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Questions on fuel pump installation

    My local hardware carries a good supply of automotive studs and I assume most do. If I can find some a bit long they are relatively easy to shorten. Tom

    TR2/3/3A Re: door blistering with rust

    If you get a good color mask you might try "back masking" around the spot with the rattle can and then compound the area. Better to do the whole door in my opinion or mask it off at the crease so you...

    Re: hydraulic fittings "O ring face"

    Thanks, PJ. I know that if a disconnect failed my life would depend on the safety catch on the lift, not a chance I intend to take. So far have managed OK without a disconnect. Tom

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3A Chassis restoration

    The part I would question is heating the fulcrum pin. I'm not saying you shouldn't do it but you should get advice from someone more knowledgeable than me. Perhaps find a way to bend it cold. I'm ...

    My memory tells me that it was a nailer for the weather strip but my memory is not all that reliable.

    General TR Re: You May Not Know? Hardtop Installation

    I don't have a TR6 so can't comment on the hard top but I can say my hat's off to you for keeping up your 375K car like a trailer queen. Keep on driving.

  9. TR2/3/3A Re: TR4A 16P Girling Calipers Adapted to TR3. Hose/tubing routing?

    Bob,
    Yours does not look a whole lot different than my TR3 with original split Girling calipers. The hose on mine does not actually hit the upper control arm but curves just underneath. The bends...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Engine plate question

    That plate is very vulnerable to bending from even minor impacts. My TR3 had been hit in the front and repaired before I bought it. That plate was not part of the repair even though it was bent more...

    General Tech ST Parts Manual

    Windows recently "upgraded" my OS and now I can't open the ST Factory Parts Manual pdf that I've relied on for years. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the manual is in the public domain and it...

    The manual for the TR2/TR3 is of little help although there may have been a service bulletin on recommended oils at some point. There were no multi viscosity oils at the time and I think the...

    I've never been too fussy about engine oil and have had little success at raising oil pressure with heavier oil. I do however try lately to use ZDDP(Zinc dialkyldithiophosphate) oils as the evidence...

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

    Here is my most likely warped logic. I can buy 10 Chinese relays, shipping included, for about the price of one brand name unit. They can be changed in a minute. I guess I was lucky as my 2 year old...
  17. TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    Interesting, I've never tried to "adjust" those screws, instead I've left them very slightly lower than the surface, as they seemed to be when I took them out. I also find no mention of adjustment in...

    Did you switch the leads on the ammeter? I think that is polarity dependent.

    If it's in the selector, you can sometimes hold it in gear with the shift lever. If it's the top hat, you can't. Tom

    TR2/3/3A Re: Hints on sealing the sump gasket.

    I'm probably being pessimistic but the timing cover has been known to leak where the tensioner finds a way to hit it, which it seems to do.
