  1. TR2/3/3A » Re: Seeking advice on how to repair TR3 steering wheel broken spoke.

    If all 4 are broken at that point, what are the chances that the others are about to break? What you've outlined is the only way I see to repair it, but I think David has the right idea : Look for a...

    I'm more interested in making sure the choke levers are fully released (don't want to drive around with the choke partially on), so I set mine up with it off. Note that there is supposed to be some...

    TR2/3/3A » Re: Lug Nut use

    No, they're not safe. Somewhere, there is a specific warning against doing that.

    IIRC, the steel wheel nuts were actually made larger during early production, to help keep them from pulling...

  6. TR2/3/3A » Re: location of the coolant drains on a tr3a

    My concern would be blowing the heater core apart. They aren't the strongest construction to begin with, and get weaker with age and rust.

    Yes, but it has been somewhat erratic. Much of it is considered "wilderness preserve", meaning its supposed to be left in it's natural state.

    TR6 » Re: Front shocks

    I checked RA, they don't seem to have front shocks for a TR6. Or a TR3 for that matter.

    So, I guess you either buy cheap shocks, or expensive ones.

    Re: Making your own tools (Sometimes)

    I have a drawer in my tool chest reserved for "custom" tools like that, and it's mostly full.

    For example, the overdrive solenoid on a Stag requires a wrench that is 1" AF, but only 3/16" thick...

    I'd say it also depends on what you plan to do with all that current. But in general, yeah, you're gonna need some wiring improvements. The existing charge path (alternator back to battery) is...

    Not for me. They almost always snap off for me, which leaves a much worse problem. The original bolt is soft enough to drill, but not an easy out!

    TR2/3/3A » Re: Windshield difficulties

    IMO a hand impact tool is your best bet for the other two; but it may snap them off too. Start out with fairly gentle taps on the tool, and work your way up gradually. You may have to create a...
