    TR2/3/3A » Re: Scuttle uneven on one side

    Very hard to tell in a single pic...but in that one the rear scuttle looks low on the left. I can’t see the problem with the front.

    TR2/3/3A » Re: Putting windshield back together

    If you are making the pieces yourself, then tap the countersunk screw to a standard size. In other words...it doesn't really matter.

    I’m pretty sure the 3 stanchion screws are Witworth...the big 3 should stock them. If you are making the pieces yourself, then tap the countersunk screw to a standard size. You will need a witworth...

    TR2/3/3A » Re: The chrome beading is rubbing on the hood

    It’s a beautiful fit...a shame it rubs. Maybe some vinyl tape on the trim to protect the bonnet paint, and then live with the rubbing? I’m afraid anything you do is going to harm the beautiful...

    TR2/3/3A » Re: location of the coolant drains on a tr3a

    Lower right side and rear of the radiator... and low on the block below the rear carb, but just above the starter. Unless you drain it regularly, the engine tap will likely be clogged.

    I always painted the entire panel, but I have noticed that modern body shops prefer to feather the spray over just a partial panel. I figure it goes back to the fact older paints faded badly, and...

    TR2/3/3A » Re: how do i fix this hood line?

    That's not too bad!

    Bob is correct. Make sure the spring is assembled preoperly so it isn't pressing abnormally hard against the bonnet, and the rod is hitting in the slot in the bonnet.

    Like Tom says, that pin is the single hardest part to replace on a TR3. I would try to bend it back as you plan first, as it would save several weeks labor if the pin has to be replaced. On...

    Funny, Steve! We should put oakum all around the cockpit. It's definitely wood, but it's always a weird, twisted, wood.

    That happens sometimes. There is still a satisfaction knowing you did it all yourself! I would have done the carpet myself, but had to draw the line somewhere.

    In my TR3A it was like a very thick cardboard. My Skinner kit for the TR2 came with 1/4” plywood as a backer. It also holds the edge of the carpet too, although that’s not shown in the pic.

    If the MC rod was adjusted too tight, it can maintain pressure in the line, even after the pedal is released. I’ll cross my finger that is the issue!?!
