    TR2/3/3A Re: Marx Viton rear engine seal

    I am almost certain you have to have the crank out to get the top half of the seal housing installed. There is a tool to set the position of the seal housing.

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

    I did check it a while ago against a new gauge and it was very close. Under reading by a 2 or 3 pounds.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    Well the 160 degree thermostat fixed the problem a bit too well. I am running at 140 degrees now. So I will get a 180 thermostat as I understand the motor should run at around 180.

    I had checked...

    Once again the pit helped as I could sit down in front of the TR to work on the grill.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Looking at the gasket I have just removed I see areas around some bolt holes where the gasket has been crushed. The gasket RTV did not seem to be stuck...

    Here is the tool. It is just wide enough to fit the main openings. Just squeeze carefully and check the opening.

    Please excuse the welding.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    Got a 160 degree thermostat and fitted it today. Not taken the TR out yet to see if that has helped.

    I did remove what I think may be a 195 degree thermostat.
