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

    I've always just cut them. Lots less hassle than trying to work one side through the hole, and works just as well.

    TR2/3/3A Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    So they would stick even after line-reaming to .3125"? Did you happen to try .3135"?

    Re: Scroll Air Compressor

    Seems like a good idea, but then so did the Wankel engine.

    Not sure I believe that a 30 gallon tank at 145 psi can be the equivalent of my 80 gallon tank running 175 psi. Seems like the laws of...

    Just Delrin. Same size and shape as the standard insert (although a bit longer than necessary). The kit came without instructions, but the carb (an updraft Zenith IIRC) already had (badly worn)...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    FWIW, I dug out a TR6 Haynes and I still don't see that torque figure listed. Couldn't find an edition number, but the copyright notice says 74, 78 and 87. Maybe the wrong number was removed from...

    TR2/3/3A Re: problem just rebuilt SU carbs

    I did much the same thing, but it was just nitrile (ethanol-safe) automotive fuel line. It did start weeping a bit after 10 years or so, but just took a tiny fraction of a turn on the adjustment to...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    I don't really know what is right; just going by what I find in the manuals. But "standard" torque for a grade 2 1/2-20 nut in "slightly lubricated" condition is listed as only 41 ftlb, so your...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    That's kind of why I was asking about actual thread size. The TR6 manual says they are 7/16" and only 38 ftlb of torque; while TR4 says 3/8" and 27 ftlb of torque.

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    Sounds to me more like you've skinned the threads off of the stud. If it was just the nut that was damaged, it would still turn down the (good) threads on the stud.

    Remove the jet and inspect it. Originals used a blind hole in the center, but I've seen reproductions that have the jet drilled through, then a plug put in that also retains the clevis for the choke...

    TR4/4A Re: Steering rack clearance

    If the rubbers aren't compressed, you can get sloppy steering from the rack moving around while cornering.

    The SPC calls it a "stay, fascia panel to battery box", P/N 601939.
    I don't know of anyone reproducing them, but used originals should be easy to come by. They rarely fail or get damaged.
