    Always a problem : when you play in someone else's sandbox, you play by their rules or go home.

    Re: Lightning Strike!

    Old fashioned lightning rods actually work quite well. Yeah, you could say they "attract" lightning, but the point is that they shunt the local charge to ground without doing any damage. Far better...

    TR5/TR250 Re: TR250 question (Not asking for a friend)

    Batteries can certainly fail in interesting ways, but he said the horns still work. If the battery can supply enough juice to run the horns, I would expect at least something from the lights.

    That's actually the solution I used as well, although I made my own extended tip nut (doesn't seem to be in their old printed catalogs). It's worked great for a long time. My only regrets are not...

  9. TR2/3/3A Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    Sorry, I thought I had an original 1/4" sleeve to measure, but couldn't find it.

    TL8 is a standard sleeve, the ST hardware catalog gives length as .250" (1/4")

    TRF stocks a LOT of parts that...
  10. TR2/3/3A Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    It's been a long time ago, but the sleeve I got from Moss was just a standard compression sleeve, meaning it didn't work right. Didn't try their nut.

    And maybe they have since found a source for...
  11. TR2/3/3A Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    I don't have the thread information handy; but you're right about the nuts. The outlet is a special adapter nut, to fit 1/4" od tubing into what would normally be a 5/16" fitting.

    Fairly standard...

    TR6 Re: Fuel issues

    Possible, but not likely IMO. I would look for something that restricts fuel flow, like a line that is partially blocked or an old fuel filter. IIRC, the TR6 has rubber line under the tank that is...

    AFAIK, the extra hard line was only on TR5 and later; not TR4A.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Liner spigot fit?

    The bottom edge of at least most of them is tapered, so you won't get the true diameter by measuring what sticks out (if they stick out at all).

    That's a puzzler, I can't think of anything offhand to cause that. Any chance the spring inside the MC is broken?
