    Re: Drive Your Triumph day photos.

    This https://www.nps.gov/ocmu/learn/historyculture/upload/SB25-Civilian-Conservation.doc seems to indicate it was started by the CCC and finished after WWII.

    Re: Expanding the skill set

    The Subaru starter is located similarly, although the engine is a flat 6, and I don't think it was that hard to replace.

    Re: Cooking bacon

    When I went to school, many, many years ago, only the girls were taught how to cook. The boys were taught wood shop.

    Re: Front sway bar mounting?

    The all came with anti-sway bars standard. The mounds often die because of slamming into curbs when parking. The factory rally cars had guards for the mounts.

  12. Re: Front Shroud Differences: 3000 vs. BJ8

    You're correct, the shroud is different in the windshield area. The defroster vents are about 6" forward (I recall) in the convertible shroud. A club member of ours found his had been pieced there...

    Re: Front sway bar mounting?

    IIRC, the bolt holes are in the middle of that piece (left to right). Is there filler covering the holes?

    Re: Rebuilding roadster windshield

    The ones I got from Moss didn't fit either. I was able to reuse the old ones. I was using new glass, so the sealing rubber fit.

    Re: Proper Pronunciation

    I suspect you speak "Northern Californian". "Southern Californian" includes a lot of "like", as in "I speak, like, Californian."

    Re: Spark plug wires 7mm or 8mm

    What goes bad on the wires is the insulation. If you run the car at night in a dark garage (with the door open) and see sparking, it's time to replace. If you touch the wires when the engine is...

    Re: Longbridge BN4 top frame question

    It is welded. I would take and post a photo of mine for you, but I installed the top, folded it up behind the seat and attached my hardtop. It has remained there ever since. It's easier to remove...
  20. Re: How to inspect the frame in a pre-purchase inspection on a restored car?

    Here are some thoughts:

    If there are no seams on the top or bottom of the frame, it has probably been replaced by a Jule frame. That's good in that it's a better frame and wouldn't be rusted on...
