    TR2/3/3A Re: Quiet

    I used Kilmat 50 mil. It was easy and works. They also have 80 mil. I hear Dynamite is hard to work with but this may be because it is thicker and less stretchy. I would put the best stuff over the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR3A Gas Cap

    I don't like these heat shields because they go under the carburetors so they can't be removed without removing the carb.
    I made one just like this one (see TR3driver) but with only two bolt holes. ...

  4. TR2/3/3A Re: All new valve train - no adjustment at rocker arms

    Would it be possible (advisable) to grind the push rods down a 16th. This is more of a question than an answer. In 1974 I had to buy a thicker head gasket to reduce the compression. Might still be...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Carpet and upholstery installation

    61859I just did mine. Carpets are easy, just lots of contact cement. I also put "Killmat" under the carpet for sound and heat. Definitely recommend over the hump to keep your right leg cool. Vinyl...

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

    I used a long 3" wide nylon strap like you would see on lawn furniture. Tied a loop at each end and used a wood block clamp to pull the loops together. Those clamps aren't that strong but they have...
  9. TR2/3/3A Re: The chrome beading is rubbing on the hood

    I put a strap around the hood and squeezed it with a wood block clamp. This method didn't damage the paint and pulled the back corners in nicely.

    I lost a corvette and a Jag, all at once, to a Eucalyptus tree. Long story on the insurance, which I will no bore you with.
    If the car runs good, etc., buy a door and a fender. Good luck. Pictures...
  11. TR2/3/3A Re: location of the coolant drains on a tr3a

    The linkage can be located on the manifold side, centered, or on the fender side. The important thing is to bend the bracket that holds the cable shroud so that you get good alignment with choke on...

    What did you end up using for the wheel arches. Foam rubber, cotton, nothing. They look better than mine with cotton backing.

    You say 5th gear. Are you running an electric overdrive. Could a sudden downshift be an electrical problem. After all, it is a Triumph!

    Those are real Lucas mirrors from England. Got the convex and really like them, at least the left one. The right one is hidden behind the dash mirror so it gets less use.

    When I bleed the brakes really well, they were firm for about a week. Then after a long drive they got soft again in the morning. You might be right about the bearings.

    TR2/3/3A Pdwa

    People keep referring to the PDWA, but as far as I know the TR3A just has a Residual pressure valve.
    That said is the valve easy to remove in place, without unhooking all the hydraulic lines?
