    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...

    Re: Torque Sticks

    Been around for at least 30 years that I know of. Accuracy is pretty low though, from what I understand. They need to be matched to the impact gun; but impact guns get weaker as they age, etc. And...

    Did you contact Marv Gruber? I'll bet he's got a pile of them. I'm sure I've got several myself, but not where I can get to them easily.

    TR6 » Re: wider tires

    Unless you raise the air pressure a bit. Up around 30-34 psi (which I'm sure varies from tire to tire and car to car so do your own research) I find that traction and handling improve, while...

    Re: It's friday - transportation songs

    Not my favorite, but definitely worth an honorable (and belated) mention. Got some neat old video clips & photos too.

    TR6 » Re: wider tires

    I run 205/55 on stock TR6 rims. Speedo calibration is off, ground clearance is less, but no other problems. On a TR6, I'm sure you could find a taller profile, but I actually like the reduced...

    Re: One morning at Starbuck’s

    I'd resemble that remark, except I never set foot in Starbucks.

    My point of view, being an "Internet cafe" is part of their business model. Seems rude to me, to try to annoy their other...

    I like both of those, although IMO it's the wrong version of "Hot Rod Lincoln". It was 12 cylinders, not 8.

    Old fashioned lightning rods actually work quite well. Yeah, you could say they "attract" lightning, but the point is that they shunt the local charge to ground without doing any damage. Far better...

    That's actually the solution I used as well, although I made my own extended tip nut (doesn't seem to be in their old printed catalogs). It's worked great for a long time. My only regrets are not...

  19. TR2/3/3A » Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    Sorry, I thought I had an original 1/4" sleeve to measure, but couldn't find it.

    TL8 is a standard sleeve, the ST hardware catalog gives length as .250" (1/4")

    It's been a long time ago, but the sleeve I got from Moss was just a standard compression sleeve, meaning it didn't work right. Didn't try their nut.

    And maybe they have since found a source for...
  21. TR2/3/3A » Re: Can someone confirm size and thread count on fuel line tube nuts (brass fittings)

    I don't have the thread information handy; but you're right about the nuts. The outlet is a special adapter nut, to fit 1/4" od tubing into what would normally be a 5/16" fitting.

    Possible, but not likely IMO. I would look for something that restricts fuel flow, like a line that is partially blocked or an old fuel filter. IIRC, the TR6 has rubber line under the tank that is...
