    TR2/3/3A Re: The Steering Wheel Nut

    I had Steve’s experience too. The nut does not “feel” hardened, so I was afraid to crank on it. The wheel later loosened a bit after use. I then snugged the nut back down and all is tight 3 years...

    TR2/3/3A Re: I have a doubt about the gearbox

    +1. I would not rebuild for that little play on a known tranny, but these are not strong gearboxes. As a minimum I would pull it for new synchro rings, top hat bearing, countershaft bearings,...

    And I don't think the box lasted long. Mine, car 5248, did not have the box, so it had disappeared by 1954.

    TR6 Re: Why were all these shims in there?

    Good effort in getting close...but still save the shims as you should reset alignment after full running gear is in place and suspension has settled into a permanent set.

    TR6 Re: Why were all these shims in there?

    I agree, suspension geometry must be adjusted with weight on wheels and all settled into its normal ride height. Jag was an exception, where you used special spacers to set a "standard" height. I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Side screen location.

    Great...if you already have the window acetate you can use that to make sure the angles on the frame are correct. The window plastic will dictate the final angle of the front rail of the frame.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Side screen location.

    As Steve wrote, you may be a bit low. The "missing" material is simply a thick fold of material that extends out from the inside edge of the frame about 3/8 to 1/2", depending on how TRF finishes...
