    TR6 Re: 74 Tach

    Do you know if the needle for the tach is the same as the speedo? I might have a late speedo that has a usable needle.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Unmarked SU jet needles?

    Look on the side of the shank. You may have to use a magnifying glass as the marking are sometimes very faint.

    TR2/3/3A Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    For some reason I found that reducing the OD of the bushing to make it a light press fit had more effect on the problem than increasing the ID. Also, if I remember correctly, the throttle shafts are...

    TR2/3/3A Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    I have rebushed many SU carbs with Delrin. I made the bushings from solid rod stock. The only problem was that if bushing was too tight of a fit in the carb body, it would cause the throttle to...

    TR2/3/3A Re: When to use R (Rich) needles in my SU's?

    Nelson Riedel wrote some great articles on O2 monitors. They pertain to the ZS carbs and the TR6, but the principle also applies to SU carbs. The bottom line is that the adjusting nut effect on...

    John-If the sliding member sticks to the brake ring, the OD will be engaged in all gears even if the isolator switches are functioning.

    Re: Reversing w/. OD engaged - symptoms?

    A quick and easy check to tell if the OD is engaged is to put the car in neutral (engine not running) and attempt to push it rearward. If it won't move, the OD is engaged. From my experience, if you...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Another Differential Question

    The spec for the carrier bearings is .002"-.004" "pinch over both bearings", so .003" would be in the middle. Maybe you could find some .0015-.002" shim stock and make your own.
    Just my opinion,...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Another Differential Question

    I might be wrong, but I think you would add .0015" shims to each side of the carrier to maintain the contact picture and increase the pre-load. Also, increase the pinion pre-load to 15-18"lbs by...
