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

    I have a new 1/4" tube nut from TRF. IT is identical to the one in Gene's picture, with the extension below the threads. So it looks like either source provides the same item.
    Good to hear that...
  2. TR2/3/3A Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    Very good Bob. By the time I saw your message and got the numbers you already found them. The second thing that I was going to say was, if you can not find the part or number on line call them at...
  3. TR2/3/3A Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    I purchased both tube nuts from TRF and have used them for several years. They sell the sleeves as well. But I suspect they are the same as found at the local hardware store. Again I have used...
  4. TR2/3/3A Re: TR4A 16P Girling Calipers Adapted to TR3. Hose/tubing routing?

    Good for you. Truth is when it comes to parts of the car that are hidden you can modify a lot and still pass for original. If you can leave things like the original tab in place then your...

    60712Here is one picture of the TR4 frame. Passenger side right side is bottom left is top of spring tower.
    I agree that it looks like you should move forward and place the soft hose on the front of...

    On the GBH 206 line one end is threaded and about 3/8" long this goes into the caliper with a copper washer. The other end is threaded for a flare fitting and is 7/8 to 1" long . I note that your...
  7. TR2/3/3A Re: TR4A 16P Girling Calipers Adapted to TR3. Hose/tubing routing?

    Yes shoulder of the start of the threads. No I am using the stock upper control arms on the TR3. I have a TR4 as well but would need to remove the wheel to measure the hose. I suspect it is the...
  8. TR2/3/3A Re: TR4A 16P Girling Calipers Adapted to TR3. Hose/tubing routing?

    I measured the soft line that I am using on the TR3 and it is 12& 3/4" shoulder to shoulder.

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

    It seems to me that you are over-thinking the situation. First I will say that I have TR4/4A front brakes on my TR3A project . Consider that the TR3B used these same TR4 calipers. The difference...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    The TR3 that I am working also does not sit correct in the front with the recommended spacers. I found that reversing the spacers on the shock tower greatly improved the fit.
    For myself I preferred...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    I believe the panel was hand made. But TRF (Albert) could tell you if the present panels are the same as they had three years ago.
    From your picture I would say your situation would not require a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    First the dogleg piece I bought was a VERY poor fit. I only used the very bottom of it , which is about the same size that you are missing some metal. Even at that the bottom took a lot of...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    I agree with David. Your No. 7 --repairing the dog leg panel needs to wait until the B post is welded onto the frame. In fact to make it easier on yourself you will need to open that dogleg panel...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    One thing that is not apparent at your stage is that if you remove the inner sill, the rear weld point to the B post is behind the sheet metal between the door and rear fender. I had to cut an...

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    If the spindles are worn you will see it when they are removed. If they are not worn then one would assume the bushings.

    TR4/4A Re: SU HS6 throttle spindle size

    I have rebuilt several of the HS6 carbs. On those I found that the spindles seemed to take the wear as opposed to the carb body. I used a rebuild kit from TRF that worked well. Yes the spindles...

    TR2/3/3A Re: painting the floors of my tr3.

    I believe that Hammerite paint was originally a brand name of paint. We now see hammered finish paint in several brands of spray cans. I suspect that POR 15 may need some special prep to be able to...

  23. TR2/3/3A Re: Stock air cleaners and aftermarket air cleaners.

    It seems to me that a lot depends on the area that you drive in. If you live in an area with little to no dust or blowing dirt and no dirt roads then the original air cleaner may do just fine. But...

    TR4/4A Re: Moss rear spring distance piece 674-560

    Somebody else can correct me ---but the TR4 does not use that kind of a distance piece. Only the TR4A with the solid axle had those.
