    Re: Honda spark plugs

    It ran fine and still does. Starts instantly hot or cold, winter or summer so saw no need to change. This car sits outside most of the year, only coming into the garage when we go to Florida. It's...

    Honda spark plugs

    Our '02 Accord goes into the shop tomorrow for routine maintenance & tire rotation. The original spark plugs now have over 150,000 miles on them (try that on a Triumph) and I think they should be...

    Re: Dead battery

    Re-checked. Voltage now 0.00. It bleeds off slowly. But battery voltage across the terminals has dropped from 12.6 to 12.45 just sitting with green knob loosened. I'll check it again tomorrow.

    Re: Dead battery

    Further update. Even with the green knob turned all the way out - which is unnecessary - I still get a .02 volts reading when touching the green knob or the holddown bolt. It should read zero volts,...

    Elliot guessed it. He wins the prize. The ground cable clamp was (barely) touching the battery hold-down rod. Not wanting to bend the cable, I had kept it straight and tightened it up not realizing...

    Re: The times, they are

    My wife has the I-Phone and uses it constantly. It's very useful, especially when you're lost. She says "Directions Basil's house" and we get the route and a map. It also tells her how far ahead a...

    Ok - I think I discovered the source of the short circuit by accident, and when I discovered it, I burst out laughing at how simple and stupid it was. I discovered it by using my Radio Shack...

    TR6 Re: TR6 Door Glass

    1. Remove the door panels. Use a screwdriver and an ice pick or a nail to drive out the metal pieces holding the handles to the shafts.
    2. The glass should fit squarely and snugly in the lift...

    Vermont car show

    Spent four days in Vermont. Attended a car show in Waterbury. Over 100 cars - about 40 makes represented. I'd say 90% were American, mostly from the 1920s-1950s. Many Model A's, a couple of T's - the...

    Re: I do miss Gliding

    As a novice, you have to be aware of "stick lift". - the unconscious easing back of the stick trying to hold altitude. You start to climb but lose speed rapidly if you persist.

    My memory may be faulty, but as I recall, VW Beetles and (maybe) Porsches had lug bolts and no studs. Made tire changing fun when there were no studs to lift the tires onto. I use a jack today. Can't...

    No safety inspections in CT either. Emissions only. Triumph and Alfa exempt - too old.

    TR6 Re: Clutch pedal click noise

    I'd have to use a mirror since I can no longer lay under or on top of a car. I'll also have to figure out what I'm looking for. I'll check my catalogs to see what's up there.
