    Hi. I have reached my allowance for posting images. CJD suggested I go back and delete earlier messages. Are there other options? Can previous threads be archived in case people want to access them?...

    TR2/3/3A Re: such strange thread on gear shift knob

    Mine definitely has the nut. Tried to identify the thread but no record of that pitch and diameter in my tables. My guess on the fine thread is that it is similar to the brass threads, allowing...

    The big hammer and anvil either side does the job on the tapers. Don't miss hit and take out the steering box!

    Hi Windsor. Sorry for the delay in responding.
    The sheet I use for body panels is 0.95 mm which equates closely to 19 gauge. Other parts such as body mounting brackets are much thicker and I find...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Rear tail light cutouts

    Merry Christmas everyone.
    I got a little bored with doing panel work earlier this year and so I started rebuilding the engine, gearbox and differential for the TR. I haven't posted anything related...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Cam follower rotation

    Thanks for the feedback Jerry. I had vague recollections about the offset aspect you describe. Interesting to hear of the two different approaches to effect the same outcome.

    Thanks for the confirmations gentlemen. I will just put the plate on the press and should be able to iron the wrinkle out.

    Is the front engine plate completely flat. Mine is slightly bent at the right hand engine mount. (Viewed from the front of the car) Could be damaged from a collision because it looks like the bend...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Liner spigot fit?

    That makes sense Randall. The liners I got were purchased from a guy for half price, surplus to his requirements. They have sat on my shelf for quite some time.
    Even so, I doubt my brother in law...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Liner spigot fit?

    Got to work on the liners today. I cleaned the block thoroughly again, this time with a flapper wheel in my drill to ensure there was no old sealer or surface rust in the block.
    I then made a...

    Thanks John. I thought it was something like that but could not remember the detail of how it worked. Makes you wonder why they wear like that. Perhaps the cam has been ground flat. When miked, it is...

    TR2/3/3A Cam follower rotation

    Are the cam followers supposed to rotate in operation?
    The ones I removed from my old block are generally grooved slightly as if the have been sitting in the same location on the cam.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Liner spigot fit?

    Thanks Graham. That fits with what I have read. I think I ran some weld in the old liners to shrink the spigot a bit when I pulled the old block apart.
    Not sure what I will do going forward....

    TR2/3/3A Liner spigot fit?

    I have a new set of liners to install. I find they are quite tight when seated in the block and would have to be pressed in.

    TR2/3/3A Re: lower wishbone installation

    Bobby, the front and rear wishbone arms cannot be mixed up since they all have a stud in their end closest to the chassis. If they are placed on the coil pan and all the bolt holes align, then the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Hood / bonnet plinths

    Frank, John, any idea when those rivets were used? John, did your TR2 have them? Seems to me they would have the potential to force the bonnet skin closer to the stiffener and potentially distort the...
