    John is doing the same thing I do. Upload the photos onto another photo sharing site like Imgur, then insert an IMG link in the post here.

    Re: Further skill-set expansion

    I think what's happening is that the image has a flag saying it should be rotated for display. Some platforms obey the flag, some don't.
    If I save the original to my hard drive and then display...

    I like the idea of not posting the news here. But it's actually kind of entertaining to follow some of it, just to hear what the conspiracy theory du jour is. I've heard everything from the virus...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR 4A cylinder head on TR 3 engine

    My feeling is: It's your car, it should please you. It's a fun little car, and for some, a little extra grunt makes it more fun. Others just like the bling of that row of intakes under the hood. ...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Restoring a 54 TR-2 Long Door

    The pushrod is different between Lockheed & Girling, as is the way the slave cylinder mounts. I'm not sure of the difference in pushrods, but the Lockheed version might well be shorter, since the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR 4A cylinder head on TR 3 engine

    Oops, my mistake. According to Bill Piggott, the late exhaust manifold will fit the early head without modification, but the early manifold won't fit the late head. I don't recall having to change...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR 4A cylinder head on TR 3 engine

    Oh yes, that's true. All the head studs on the manifold side got longer for the high port head. The 3 short ones went from 5" to 5-3/8", two long ones from 9" to 9-1/2". Then later on, the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR 4A cylinder head on TR 3 engine

    The exhaust did change, I believe, but ISTR the early manifold will still bolt up to the high port head. Difference might be in the way it bolts to the intake manifold.

    AFAIK only one manifold...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Dot 5

    FWIW, you can partially compensate for the soft pedal by converting to the braided stainless brake hoses. They swell less under pressure than the originals.

    I've lost track of just how long I've...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3 Piston Sleeves

    Sounds good to me. They do go in easy if everything is clean.

    I would measure the protrusion on both sides, as I've had two engines in a row now where the deck isn't quite level. But I don't see...

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

    I put an early TR4 temp gauge in my TR3, so I've kind of been through this :)
    It's interesting to note that Smiths made both types of gauges, but Triumph chose the ones that need the VS. I assume...

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

    The later gauges (TR4 through at least TR6) work on a 10 volt supply, not battery voltage. The "voltage stabilizer" (a very poor name IMO) is what supplies the 10 volts.

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

    So, check the voltage coming out of the stabilizer, with the circuit complete (gauge and sender connected). If it is less than 10 volts, then the gauge will probably read higher when the battery...

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

    With reading that low, I'm pretty sure you've got something else going on.

    Is the stabilizer an original type (thermal) unit, or an aftermarket solid-state unit? The original type will work...

    I've been hearing a lot of that kind of logic. I agree, nothing is a 100% barrier. But if wearing a mask gives only a 1% chance of stopping an infection that might be deadly otherwise, I'm going to...

    Check your player, there should be a way to turn off subtitles that aren't "forced", even if they are in the MKV. They take up almost no room in the MKV, so no real need to delete them.

    Mine only sticks out by 1/2" or maybe 3/4" tops. No doubt there is some variation, but 2" would make me wonder if the upper end is properly engaged.
