    TR2/3/3A Re: Valve cover breather cap?

    Probably not since they took the lead out. There was a time when it was so commonly used that mechanics were getting lead poisoning. I quit using it 50 years ago and find odorless mineral spirits a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Valve cover breather cap?

    I think the book does say to rinse it in gasoline but I don't see why most solvents wouldn't do as well. Tom

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mini Pulses at Idle

    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...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Spark Plug Gap?

    The TR2/3 manual does say .032. I wonder if there was a service bulletin at some point. I've always used .025 also but I don't remember where I got the number. Perhaps from the plug manufacturer's...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Noise from clutch area?

    The seats usually come out without protest. If the 3 screws on the bottom of the rails won't come out, take the bottom cushions out and unscrew the nuts that go on the studs that come up through the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    I'd say your test will work fine. Around Macon the correction for altitude will most likely be less than a degree F and the correction for cruddy water couldn't be much more than that and neither...

    TR2/3/3A Re: carpet kit

    I'm one of the ones who can't tell the difference. The listing says '55 to '57. I know there were differences in materials but pattern differences too? (Mine is a '59 and the set looks like it will...

    They used to put a little thing of grease in the box too. Don't know if they still do. Tom
  10. TR2/3/3A Re: Gas Gauge sending unit "float" orientation?

    The obvious answer is to place the float in the lowest position but you can't see that with the tank in the car. If you're asking what the outside part looks like I can post a picture of an original...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    Perhaps off base but I had a bit of temp gauge creeping up in hotter weather, never a problem but a little unsettling. I found an original bellows thermostat on line and installed it, not so much as...

    I had the motor off mine while working on the brake cylinders so I cleaned and greased it. It was a solid lump with impressions where the moving parts went but it worked well before and after the new...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    It would seem that the size of the grille openings would make a difference, and Standard Triumph thought so also and fabricated larger slots into the grilles on some of their works cars. I don't know...

    TR4/4A Re: Can't get rear extension off. Help!

    The Buckeyes are right, if it doesn't come right off, something is wrong. I also made up a crude puller that grabbed the raised boss on the end of the tailshaft housing. Very moderate force required....

    TR2/3/3A Re: Recondition old wire wheels or buy new?

    May also be 48 spoke and upgrading to 60 would be a big improvement. (Rimmer has a decent price depending on shipping from England)

    TR2/3/3A Re: 59 TR3A Clutch Master Cylinder Failure

    I may be mistaken but I don't think current Pegasus Girling cylinders look like the old Girling cylinders. I also think the Classic Gold brand that at one time looked like the originals was among...

  24. Post-War Other Re: HERALD Simple Task turns into another project.

    Hopefully the GSJ158 will fit as that's what I ordered before I read you post. My original order, 668-040 from Moss clearly does not fit, and from everything I've read, it should. Perhaps someone...
  25. Post-War Other Re: HERALD Simple Task turns into another project.

    Thanks for the replies. The Lucas brand seems to be still available regardless of the business ownership. I believe the the GSL158 is the Lucas number. Here's a set on ebay:...
