    TR6 Re: TR6 turn signal puzzle

    Do the lights come on as well, when you select left turn? If so, it's more likely to be a poor connection somewhere, or even a corroded wire.

    The turn flasher is deliberately sensitive to current...

    Re: Fraud is just theft with a smile

    By no means the only way they rip you off.

    Some years back, my (late) wife asked me to look at a friends car. Engine oil was black as tar (and smelled like it too). Oil filter caked with old...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3 with Ground Conversion

    Just to amplify what others have said: Your various problems don't appear to have anything to do with the polarity conversion. So whether to take the extra step of switching back, or not, is up to...

    General TR Re: Ethanol free gas

    No doubt its getting better, but we still imported over 3.5 Billion barrels of oil last year.
    Granted, a relatively small portion of what we used (about 10%), but still a significant slice of our...

    Re: What to do about my wire wheels

    Pay particular attention to the splines; worn-out splines are a safety hazard even just driving around the block.

    Unfortunately, they are also the most prone to being attacked by rust, if they...

    General TR Re: Ethanol free gas

    Of course, there might be something to be said for burning American corn instead of Arab petroleum.
    In any case, its illegal to use ethanol-free on public roads in California. You can buy it, but...
  10. TR2/3/3A Re: Can a TR4A Fuel Gauge be swapped into a TR3A?

    You would need a voltage stabilizer, and a tr4 sending unit. I'm not sure offhand, but ISTR the 4A gauges each had their own bulb for illumination, so you would probably want to wire that into the...

    Re: Dead battery

    Digital meters will often give a voltage reading when connected to nothing at all. Seems like they manage to pick up and rectify random radio waves or something.

    Had an experience with that just...

    In general, I feel TRF supplies the best quality available. If they don't have them in brass, likely no one does.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mystery stall and no start?

    Seems unlikely to me, since your problem seems to be that something is conducting too well, rather than not well enough.

    Any chance your point retaining screw has been replaced with the wrong one?...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mystery stall and no start?

    Turn the engine until you can see that the points are open, then check at the coil again. If you still don't get a light on the wire to the distributor, then something is shorted inside the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel Gauge again....

    No, tr4 and 4A gauges are different electrically. They read full for a low sender resistance, instead of empty as the Tr2-3 versions do. To make one of them work, you'll need to change the sender...

    That is a post-60K gauge, which as I said, are different than the earlier ones. Pre-60K does not have the fiber strip, nor the Lucar terminals. Instead, the connections to the gauge are made with...
