    TR6 Ľ Re: Fuel issues

    They could be low, or if it just started, lots of things.
    Have you checked the oil or the diaphragms in the top dome? Look for a tear in one or both.
    May even e a intake gasket or shaft leak, if...

    TR6 Ľ Re: Starting

    Have a look at the condenser and wire from the coil to make sure they are under the plastic sleeve and not on top of the stud.

    Re: It's enough to drive ya to drink....

    Different rubber compound. I too look for the equivalent size in mine or others I help with.

    Wanted Re: TR4 L Fenders Steering wheel hub

    Just checked and the tonneau is gone, I know where and he said "Oh, didn't think you were going to use it". Wonderful. I did find the boot cover, not in bad shape, but the ribbing at the front is...

    Wanted Re: TR4 L Fenders Steering wheel hub

    I think I can find you a rear fender that is in great shape, but not cheap $300, a tach and possible a tonneau cover, those I will have to find, but thinking $75 on the tach, will make sure it runs...

    TR4/4A Ľ Re: Can't get rear extension off. Help!

    You are right, that bearing and the extension are going to come as one off the output shaft.
    If all else fails and you are worried about damage, take it to a machine shop. They will press it off...
  15. TR2/3/3A Ľ Re: Recondition old wire wheels or buy new?

    Dave, it's not just the spokes that get loose, the splines get sharp and only a complete rebuild with new center hubs can make them safe and that's if you know what you are doing. Check the price of...

    TR6 Ľ Re: Rear Oil Seal?

    If it's about 1/8 inch across, that is the only thing in there it could be. Possible it was done on installation. Not centered when pushed over the crank end.
  17. TR5/TR250 Ľ Re: Wiper wheel box knurled end not tight on arm

    Bob, wrap the end with a couple of loops of aluminum foil, leave some overhang on the top so when you push it down it will not just shove off.
    Hope you don't have to drive too much in the rain,...
  18. Re: 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 Goes Full Lockdown

    Reid, as info, the XK8 Jaguar has the main ECI and several control boxes in two compartments on the back of the firewall with plastic covers over them.
    Here is the kicker, at the very bottom of...

    GT6 Ľ Re: Oil Pump replacement

    Do know you will have to turn the pan to clear the screen. It sticks out pretty good and there is a slot it will have to come out through.
    That may be the problem you are having now.

    Re: Ford pre-crossflow valve train

    Did you look at the Spitfire, I think the shaft is 1/2 on both and the rockers have some right left to them.
    If you are doing the engine, pay close attention to the front cam bearing, be sure to...

    Spitfire Ľ Re: Runs, but not well

    To start, check for vacuum leaks in the manifold, intake and exhaust. Spray carb cleaner around the areas the manifolds join and lessen for the engine to speed up.

    Doug, in her last post, she said the needle was in the middle when she put the old regulator in, so that problem is solved, we hope.
    Now the distributor may be the problem. Check the timing, loosen...

    TR6 Ľ Re: Front brakes won't release

    Jack up the front end and turn both wheels, that will tell you if one is dragging. That is the one with the cocked piston, it needs new seals and possible new pistons.
    Just keep pushing the pedal...
  24. GT6 Ľ Re: Zero acceleration power / Carís RPMs surge when you get in it.

    You have the indication of bad readings on the gauge. The sending unit at the front of the thermostat housing is really a grounding unit, it varies ground contact, The light green wire on the gauge...
