    TR2/3/3A Re: Frame off vs. body on restoration

    If you are planning a full restoration, I cannot see that happening in less than a year. If you are just freshening a few things with a paint job...then maybe, but even then only just. I can’t find...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Windshield Wiper mount rubber

    It’s been so long since I installed mine I can’t remember the specifics...but I do remember having to modify the rubber to get it installed. I think that means I cut it??

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel Shutoff Valve

    It was a breeze to cut. The most time was spent trying to decide how deep to groove the O-rings. I am sure that answer is in the machinist's handbook somewhere, but machining is still new to me. ...

    TR2/3/3A Fuel Shutoff Valve

    Well, it's been a while since I posted a "how to" thread. This is one I've been meaning to get around to for quite some time...that leaky POS fuel valve the TR2 and early 3's came with. For those...

    Interesting. Are the inserts solid Delrin or a Delrin insert in the middle of the larger brass insert?

    Every original rubber part I have found on a Triumph turns into Steve McQueen's Blob. LOL If there is any rubber reusable, I would guess it had been replaced already.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Frame off vs. body on restoration

    The body is only 16 extra bolts, which is fewer than what holds a front wing on! All rubber will need to be replaced, which means new body mounts.

    TR2/3/3A Re: When to use R (Rich) needles in my SU's?

    Because the nut adjusts the resting position of the jet around the needle, changing the nut actually affects the mixture at all throttle positions.

    On the TR2 they were very specialized chromed bronze bolts with a domed hex head on them...and not a standard thread. I don't know it that changed later or not.

    TR2/3/3A Re: More pics of Kast Cam

    I would have no problem re-using it. As far as value...anyone with the specs, i.e. lift and duration data, can re-cut one using an old stock cam for about $80. There isn't much money in used cams.

    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.
