    Re: Across the Street

    I think I know what that car is. I've seen one or two before.
  4. TR6 Re: It finally HAPPENED... Hood cable broke but HAPPY ending.

    My Alfa also has a cable. I dread to think what would happen if it broke. Some owners drill a hole through the fender and thread a wire through with a loop on the end. I would post a question how to...

    Seems ok to me considering there are no audio or video recordings of BF in existence.

    Re: Toolboxes

    I also have about 5 other assorted metal boxes filled with electrical parts, odds and ends plus 4 plastic fishing tackle boxes.

    Re: Was anyone right in 2015?

    I'm still upright and doing the same things I did 30-40 years ago - but not as fast.

    Re: Toolboxes

    60s? A bunch of kids. As for pictures, if I shrink down to the logos, it will fit. One is their standard toolbox with a tray in the top and the other is a 3-drawer rollaway cabinet with lockable...
  9. Re: So what does a restoration really cost these days?

    Depends on what you want. A show car that you're afraid to have anybody touch or a nice clean daily driver-type? This is what mine looks like 25 years later.6447264473
  10. Re: So what does a restoration really cost these days?

    One owner's experience. I bought my TR6 on November 11, 1995 from a local guy who was getting married. It was not running but it looked good with a shiny red paint job so I paid him $2,500.00 and...

    Toolboxes

    Doc has a Craftsman toolbox. I'll one-up him. I have two - both probably older than half the folks on this board. I'll try to shrink them so I can post - the pictures that is.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Need New Battery for TR3A

    I'm of the school the bigger the better. I get a minimum of 6 years out of a battery. If it fits - use it. What's the downside?

    TR6 Re: New front shocks & air in clutch

    Backed the car out of the garage today. No problem.
    As soon as it heard I ordered new parts - it cured itself. Right?
  14. TR6 Re: It finally HAPPENED... Hood cable broke but HAPPY ending.

    Best investment I ever made. I never use the stock cable any more. Need all my strength to open the latch. Why they put it on the left side I never could figure out - all those bends. My daughter had...

    First ride in LBC

    What was the first time you rode in a British sports car?
    Mine was 1954 when I was a student in Philadelphia. I had attended the 1953 Bridgehampton road race with a fraternity brother who lived in...

    As a teenager, I lived near the water. New Yorkers used to come up, park and use the small beach at the end of the road. They also left debris, defecated in the small bushes on the path leading to...

    TR6 Re: New front shocks & air in clutch

    That's how I intend to install the replacement - bleed nipple up.
    There may be a problem with the clutch pedal itself - perhaps the pivot point is worn and that's the occasional bang I hear - like...

    Re: Oil leaks

    Amen to that. My TR6 has a solid aluminum cover that has never leaked - not even a drop. Be careful that the corner of the gasket doesn't get caught inside when you tighten the cover.64438

    TR6 Re: New front shocks & air in clutch

    I read online (where else?) that it was unnecessary to pump the clutch pedal when bleeding - that gravity bleeding was enough but making sure the reservoir doesn't run dry. Is this true? That makes...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Lucas, SU, and the rest

    Same with my TR6 after 4 1/2 months in Florida. Never even disconnected the battery. Before leaving, I threw some Sta-Bil into the tank. The hydraulic clutch? Not so good. That's another story.

    TR6 Re: New front shocks & air in clutch

    I bit the bullet and ordered both MC and SC from TRF. I think they are both original to the car. The brake MC was replaced by a PO back in 1986 but the car has not been driven much since then so...
