    TR2/3/3A Re: Oh no, not again

    I know the feeling. My mystery part turned out to be part of a garage door opener that came with the car.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Cracked Welds on Steering Idler Arm

    I also have a 58 TR3A 32847 and had a 60 TR3A. Thirty-five years ago I had the front end rebuilt on my 1960. When I drove it home I felt like it didn't handle any better than before. Then I got a...

  6. TR6 Re: 74 TR6 Interior - Padded dash and heat/sound material

    I used Kill-Mat which worked well. Same as Dynamat. I chose to use the thinner mat to save weight and then put two layers on the left side of the transmission hump. On top, not under.
    Make sure...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Front apron position

    You really don't want to get involved in bending the front apron, so bending the fenders is the best alternative. The apron is what it is. There is no right or wrong if it looks good.
  8. TR2/3/3A Re: glass and ring into new bee hive sockets

    You're right Keith. I think I said it backwards. My memory is fading but but I clearly remember the hours of swearing and then feeling really stupid.
  9. TR2/3/3A Re: glass and ring into new bee hive sockets

    I spent hours trying to get mine on and then realized I was doing it wrong. Five minutes later I'm done.
    The bee hive goes over the top of the seal and only the Crome ring goes under the outer lip....

    TR2/3/3A Re: An Electric TR3 ??

    I think it's a great idea, if you have a TR3 with a bad engine. But if you put 100hp electric in it you might have to beef up the transmission / rear end. Or you could put a torque limiter on it. I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: tr3 spare tire fit

    I think you can bend it without cracking the paint or at least just cracking the paint on the inside. Little choice but to put on your big boy pants and go for it. I like your original idea of a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Quiet

    I used Kilmat 50 mil. It was easy and works. They also have 80 mil. I hear Dynamite is hard to work with but this may be because it is thicker and less stretchy. I would put the best stuff over the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3A Gas Cap

    I don't like these heat shields because they go under the carburetors so they can't be removed without removing the carb.
    I made one just like this one (see TR3driver) but with only two bolt holes. ...

    Would it be possible (advisable) to grind the push rods down a 16th. This is more of a question than an answer. In 1974 I had to buy a thicker head gasket to reduce the compression. Might still be...

  21. TR2/3/3A Re: The chrome beading is rubbing on the hood

    I put a strap around the hood and squeezed it with a wood block clamp. This method didn't damage the paint and pulled the back corners in nicely.
