    Re: Paperless!

    Oddly enough, even living here in the suburbs of Lost Angeles, I have the option of paper bills for everything except on-line purchases.

    The point about no Internet is a good one too. Where I'm...

    Re: Paperless!

    I'm actually moving the other way; getting tired of dealing with all the paper. The bank I use sends me paper statements each month for each of about 6 different accounts (checking, savings, IRA,...

    TR2/3/3A Re: OD cover plate gasket sealer.

    Graham, I think you may be thinking of the later IRS-style OD. The earlier units had a much larger accumulator piston (and stronger springs), with no tube involved. Just a short distance piece on the...

    SPC lists FN2043/9, which is a flat speed nut with zinc chromate paint.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Starter catches 50% of the time

    Shouldn't be an issue here (as it is for later TR6). On a later TR3 through TR4A, the ring gear is bolted to the flywheel.

    And before that, the starter tried to drive the gear further onto the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Starter catches 50% of the time

    TR2/3/3A Re: Gaskets

    Along those lines, here's what the factory TR4 workshop manual has to say about sealants.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Starter catches 50% of the time

    IIRC, the book warns against lubricating the Bendix. It has to be dry to work right.
    I would also clean the battery posts and clamps, plus the connection where the ground strap meets the firewall....
  11. TR2/3/3A Re: Question on torquing nut on steering box rocker shaft

    That's pretty close.

    IMO, you be able to just feel the bind in the center, while turning the shaft with your fingers; but still be able to turn through the tight spot without too much effort.

  12. TR2/3/3A Re: Question on torquing nut on steering box rocker shaft

    Another approach is to lift the arm so the peg is out of the worm groove, and let it rest against the side of the box.

    My feeling is that tight enough to feel from that great big steering wheel is...
  13. TR2/3/3A Re: OD angle drive engaging the speedo cable

    Right, no angle drive needed for TR2-4. But you do need an extra-long speedo cable. 96" IIRC Angle drive is needed for TR4A-TR6 (and Stag, etc.)

    The hole should be square inside, to grip the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Restoration of 54 TR-2

    To answer your question, it takes a long time to start seeing oil at the rockers even with the engine idling. I'm pretty sure you could get there with the hand crank (and the plugs out), but there...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Over drive

    I'm not sure why the factory wired it that way, but they did. Since the solenoid is getting power from the battery side of the ammeter, the solenoid current shows up as a charge on the ammeter. ...

    Not a bad idea, but I've not found that many reasons to have to remove the heat shield. I put it on in 2012 and it's never been off, even to rebuild the starter and generator, and (eventually)...
