    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel gauge readings?

    You might be able to fix the tr3 gauge, they are kinda interesting inside with these little coils that can be moved around. Perhaps the gauge has cased grounded there.

    TR2/3/3A Re: clutch/brake pedal question

    Yes I am kinda sure I know what piece you mean; the piece that looks like collar which helps hold the assembly together like a spacer in place once it is all together. Yes they should both spin so...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Making your own steering wheel stator tube?

    I purchased the material for making one at a large commercial truck parts store were they make hydraulic lines. I forgot what they use the line for, but they had it in stainless. It was rumored that...
  6. TR2/3/3A Re: Turn signal and control head memory refresh.....

    Yeh that is probably it; the tube slipped out of the key on the head
  7. TR2/3/3A Re: Turn signal and control head memory refresh.....

    maybe 2 inches
  8. TR2/3/3A Re: Turn signal and control head memory refresh.....

    General TR Re: Dot 4 Brake Fluid

    It is flat; how else are you going to have horizontal? Do you think everything will return at the finest infinitesimal angle from infinity to go full circle?

    TR2/3/3A Re: Inner sill opinion

    Wise words John I totally agree. I have been building and remolding since I was 16 and had many 19th nervous break downs- not that Frank is stressed; he seems highly capable of getting her done. If I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Inner sill opinion

    My guess is the tub is a little twisted in the engine bay in the lower section where they bolt up to the frame. Like John said, the car was never perfect plus IMO the factory did it every day, and...
  12. TR2/3/3A Re: Karl's ham handed adventures for your amusement in these trying times.

    Well it will be good test for the JB-- keep us post how it holds. If it does not work maybe some silicone orange or black the RTV stuff. Anyways, I thought maybe if you clean stuff up good with some...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Inner sill opinion

    Frank, I think that sounds close and probably good for now at least. Some pics are always nice. I am not sure what part of the front clip you are referencing; it sounds like the inner kick panels. I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: radiator overflow restrictor

    I have never tried it. I use a sleeve thermostat and a tropical fan. The fan makes a big difference. I believe Macys sells some form of tropical fan.
  16. TR2/3/3A Re: Karl's ham handed adventures for your amusement in these trying times.

    Oh yeah for sure. I would try it also. I forgot about that piece. Does it also get crimped into the hole somehow? Maybe you can re-crimp with a metal round clamp to help it hold. I had that piece on...
  17. TR2/3/3A Re: Karl's ham handed adventures for your amusement in these trying times.

    I thought the trunnions are brass? Did you mean the end of a tie rod?
  18. TR2/3/3A Re: understanding the float and needle set up better

    Yes that is a good point. Long before I joined this forum, I remember once I ran a tr3 with an electric fuel pump and regulator. If the regulator was turned down to 1 psi the car would start to miss...
  19. TR2/3/3A understanding the float and needle set up better

    This is probably one of my dumber questions, anyways in trying to understand the float and needle set up on an SU carb better, I can see how it would be necessary to have the needle shut the fuel off...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Tierod Dyslexia?

    Yeah get a 6 point wrench on it; it looks to me-- push north. Should be the opposite of the other end, and yes those threads can bend your mind. I would say left hand there, no right.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Front apron position

    I said that wrong; what I meant was, I would not bolt the fenders to the tub in the front yet. Let the whole front end move on the tub. I would put the bolts in the back of the fender starting at the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Front apron position

    I would not bolt the apron to the tub just yet. Let the apron float on the tub between the fenders and bolt those 3 together; the round holes usually means a early fender. You might even want to...
