    TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    No you still have to pull the cover - later covers, I think later TR6 had small freeze plug style plugs instead of the screw in plugs which seem to me to be more of a pain to deal with.

    TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    I adjusted the ones on the end - easy to do in my case because I had the screw in plug style. I didn’t get fancy with measuring any kind of release tension, just tightened down more and tried it out.

    TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    I had that same issue, was convinced it was the 2nd gear bush as I had seen several broken previously and I didn’t test per Toms suggestion. All mine was was was a weak spring on the selector shaft.

    Jerry (texasknucklehead) may chime in on this - but beware using a longer throw slave. On a car he recently worked on clutch disengagement was a real mystery. Until he studied it and found the...

    TR6 Re: Inertia switch mounting location

    Don’t have a pic but when I bought my 6 a few years ago it had a Facet pump below the tank and an inertia switch up on the firewall pretty close to the brake master. It was a tidy location for...

    TR4/4A Re: Surrey backlight seal

    This was about two years ago but a friend of mine had the same issue - and found the one from Victoria British was a great fit. Might be worth a try.

    GT6 Re: Triumph GT6, basic work estimates

    Don't waste your time on trying to fix. Joecurto.com as Doug suggested. Or Spitbits. Nitrophyl floats, I think B1947ONT is the part number but best to call to confirm for your car.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Oil pump question

    Didn’t spot this yet so here goes: are you still running a break in oil? If so I’d wait for a change out to 20W50 then see what you have. The numbers you quote don’t seem too alarming yet to me.

    I’ve used stainless ties from Band-it on a few cars now and really like them. Was lucky to find a used kit so cost was still cheap.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Just rings?!

    Add a vote for that. I rarely disagree with advice on this board but if I’m messing with the liners it’s only when the engine is pulled and I’m doing a proper rebuild.

    MOSS Europe has the stock thrush washers listed as 0.0925. They have +0.005 available, one set might get you to the tolerance you are looking for, or possible just a fresh stock set will do it.

    The car as a RHD is just screaming for repatriation to its homeland - try TR Register and some of the UK Facebook options and I bet you would do very well.
  25. General TR Re: Is there a special tool needed for rear brake cylinders

    I wedge in a very small screwdriver to get the locking tang to disengage, then use a drift and hammer to get it started. It’s small steps doing each tang separately until both are free.
