  1. TR2/3/3A Re: TR4A 16P Girling Calipers Adapted to TR3. Hose/tubing routing?

    Bob,
    Yours does not look a whole lot different than my TR3 with original split Girling calipers. The hose on mine does not actually hit the upper control arm but curves just underneath. The bends...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Engine plate question

    That plate is very vulnerable to bending from even minor impacts. My TR3 had been hit in the front and repaired before I bought it. That plate was not part of the repair even though it was bent more...

    General Tech Re: ST Parts Manual

    I think I got it from you but my memory is not particularly reliable. The fact that the file became unreadable after the update might have been a coincidence or something else I did. The new file,...

    General Tech ST Parts Manual

    Windows recently "upgraded" my OS and now I can't open the ST Factory Parts Manual pdf that I've relied on for years. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the manual is in the public domain and it...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Oil? Oil Pressure?

    The manual for the TR2/TR3 is of little help although there may have been a service bulletin on recommended oils at some point. There were no multi viscosity oils at the time and I think the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Oil? Oil Pressure?

    I've never been too fussy about engine oil and have had little success at raising oil pressure with heavier oil. I do however try lately to use ZDDP(Zinc dialkyldithiophosphate) oils as the evidence...

    TR2/3/3A Re: 30a 5 pin universal relay

    Here is my most likely warped logic. I can buy 10 Chinese relays, shipping included, for about the price of one brand name unit. They can be changed in a minute. I guess I was lucky as my 2 year old...
  9. TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    Interesting, I've never tried to "adjust" those screws, instead I've left them very slightly lower than the surface, as they seemed to be when I took them out. I also find no mention of adjustment in...

    TR2/3/3A Re: I'm stuck... alternator/wiring/starting/?

    Did you switch the leads on the ammeter? I think that is polarity dependent.

  11. TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    If it's in the selector, you can sometimes hold it in gear with the shift lever. If it's the top hat, you can't. Tom

    General Tech Re: Lucas Fog Lamps

    I think these will fit, but I haven't used them. They are positive earth and polarity dependent.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Hints on sealing the sump gasket.

    I'm probably being pessimistic but the timing cover has been known to leak where the tensioner finds a way to hit it, which it seems to do.

    TR6 Re: 1974 Tr6 ignition switch

    It's not that easy unless someone replaced it in the past. The two little screws only hold the electrical part. The original switch is held in by 2 tamper proof ("break away") bolts. There are...

    Try putting some heavy oil or grease on your throttle shafts where they go through the carb bodies and see if that stops it. If so that would mean the shafts and bushings are worn. The oil wont fix...
