    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3 Timing Chain

    I found the new timing components to be pretty good, in contrast to most of the new stuff. I got everything from BP Northwest; used the slightly more expensive AE chain, but it's a really nice part....

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wheels, tires, hubs and axles

    You might want to take a look at my description of replacing the rear studs:

    The studs have a flange that locates the brake drum. On the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Speedometer Error Again

    That's similar to what I do. I have a small electric motor, powered from a laboratory dc power supply, and I use an optical tach to measure the speed. My setup is a little sloppier than yours, but it...

    Great info about using a small rare-earth magnet to remagnetize the rotor. I never would have imagined that would work.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Clutch through out fork misaligned

    I had a similar problem with a new shaft that I bought for my TR4A. When the locating/retaining bolt on the right side was installed, the fork wasn't centered. I suspected that the shaft was designed...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Clutch through out fork misaligned

    I don't see the regular locking pin in your photo. The extra screw (I used a taper pin) is in addition to the regular, square-headed pin, not in place of it, and the regular pin should locate the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Speedometer Error Again

    Your errors are roughly proportional to speed, so just moving the needle won't work. You need to change the amount of pointer motion per mph, and that's a lot more difficult to do. Do you have a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: manifold studs..locktite or antiseize

    Yes, Bob's quite right. Also, since you are tightening it against a rather thick, soft gasket, it's not a bad idea to retorque the manifold nuts after a few hours of use.

    TR2/3/3A Re: manifold studs..locktite or antiseize

    I'd put a little antiseize on them. I don't like using loctite on something like this--the blue stuff won't take the temperature, and if you use the red, high-temperature stuff, you'll have quite a...

    TR4/4A Re: What's the purpose of this door part?

    Ed, I think that's the only purpose that makes sense, at least to me.

    They're easy enough to fab, so I'll probably just make a new one and be done with it. And maybe put some tubing over it in...

    TR4/4A Re: Piston Liner Protrusion TR4

    In principle, selection of the figure-8 gaskets is the way to get the right protrusion. Machining the block is unnecessarily brutal, I think, but I know that people sometimes machine or polish the...

    TR4/4A Re: What's the purpose of this door part?

    Tush, that's about all I could figure. Seems pointless, though, since it fits around the window channels at their strongest point.

    My car had one of these, but the second was missing. I can...

    TR4/4A What's the purpose of this door part?

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    I just checked mine. They are 7/16. I suspect you have the wrong tie-rod ends and the taper is not fitting into the steering arm, so you don't have much thread, or they're just a lot shorter than the...

    Since it doesn't have the body on it yet, the suspension will be at or close to the limit of its travel. When you have more weight on it, you'll compress the springs more and can then evaluate it a...
