    Funny, Steve! We should put oakum all around the cockpit. It's definitely wood, but it's always a weird, twisted, wood.

    Aaaaawww...now I’m going to have to repaint mine body color. They’re black, but I think you guys are right. Body color makes sense in Triumph logic.

    The Triumph flywheel is designed to expel any oil leakage from the tranny to the front of the flywheel...away from the clutch assembly. It has drilling’s through the wheel to accomplish that feat. ...

    In my TR3A it was like a very thick cardboard. My Skinner kit for the TR2 came with 1/4” plywood as a backer. It also holds the edge of the carpet too, although that’s not shown in the pic.

    If the MC rod was adjusted too tight, it can maintain pressure in the line, even after the pedal is released. I’ll cross my finger that is the issue!?!

    Aaah, not the stock linkages. Then there isn't much you can do without "digging in". The likely issues are:

    It sounds like the adjustment is a definite possibility. Remember, as the disc face wears, the clutch fingers lift and the adjustment tightens. In other words, any clearance you had has reduced...

    Yes, they should. The lobes are ground with a very slight taper, and the lifters with a very slight dome. This keeps the camshaft pushed rearward and causes the lifters to rotate. If they don’t...
