  1. TR2/3/3A Re: What weight transmission oil in a tr3 with OD?

    Ok it looks like the MT redline 90 is a 75 to 90W synthetic. I did find one quart in town for 17.00 and they are ordering more. Plus I have some 75- 90w Valvoline, but is says limited slip on the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    David the car looks great and very original. I must be in a controversial spirit and suggest trying a different gauge. It could easily be gauge. I bought a bordon gas tub gauge a few years ago at the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Noisy tachometer

    You will find a tr3 tack a simple instrument in many ways, but be advised of the coil spring behind the needle and the shiny dish; yes the problem is probably drying grease. Sometimes getting the...

    TR5/TR250 Re: Steering Self Center

    I know little about a tr250 suspension other than general stuff, but I did put some wide tires on a tr3 once and did more damage than good, but again they do not have rack steering and suggest a very...
  5. TR2/3/3A Re: What weight transmission oil in a tr3 with OD?

    Thanks for accurate answer Keith. Those manuals confuse me because there are/maybe was imperial pints and stuff like that. Well at least that is how I remember translating some of the stuff.
  6. TR2/3/3A Re: What weight transmission oil in a tr3 with OD?

    TR2/3/3A Re: Help, I am stuck, or think I'm stuck

    The more I think about that car was cut in half, so IMHO the best thing is too jug it up from the frame. You will need some pins in the frame hole on the front and back to set the overall length of...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Help, I am stuck, or think I'm stuck

    Randall and John have been some of my best teachers, but because I am carpenter, I would basically leave the tub where it is and maybe lift it 2 inches and stick a 10 --2x4 between the tub and the...
  11. TR2/3/3A Re: shifting tower shifting rods on an early tr3 tower

    Ok after I read Randal’s post better after the shock. I can that all means all. Plus they look identical. See, I like both you guys, and yes it takes a good man to admit when he has missed something....
  12. TR2/3/3A Re: shifting tower shifting rods on an early tr3 tower

    Ok---you guys-- do I have to move the forks over to the earlier shift tower along with the switches or are all the later forks the same? Is there and OD fork?

    TR2/3/3A Re: Help, I am stuck, or think I'm stuck

    You can lift the tub up with small jack and put 4 shims in on each out rigger--- no big deal; you are going to moving shims around until you get the doors correct anyway, maybe 5 here and 3 there....
  14. TR2/3/3A Re: shifting tower shifting rods on an early tr3 tower

    Randall thanks again. I have like 4 old trannys lying around and was gutting out the shifters to find or make up the best out of the bunch that would have a factory dip stick hole. I drill one out a...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Help, I am stuck, or think I'm stuck

    Sorry, I did look up at the above post and see the picture that shows the floor and sill are in on the passenger side. Seems to me you need to be the other sill in. Those shims are meant to be moved...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Help, I am stuck, or think I'm stuck

    How could there be any shims in place because the shims go between the inner sill and the outrigger of the frame. What do the out riggers of the frame look like? The other shims on the back and front...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Help, I am stuck, or think I'm stuck

    So you have one side with an inner sill in place sitting on the frame and no inner sill on the other side? What is the side without the sill sitting on? Does one side have a new floor?

    Interesting John, you did the tr2 Don Elliot style. I gots to say it looks right. I put mine in the channel one piece and not cut to length and did not glue it yet because I figured it might shrink....
  21. TR2/3/3A Re: The big brass drain plug on the OD does not thread in easily

    Sorry I did clarify sooner these 4 year restoration combined with my youthful mind, I forget. The transmission came out of 1961 tr3. I was able to get the plug to go in and out smoothly by filing...
  22. TR2/3/3A Re: The big brass drain plug on the OD does not thread in easily

    So, John did you use a square O ring or round O ring?
  23. TR2/3/3A Re: The big brass drain plug on the OD does not thread in easily

    I figured there was some damage also, but with the large size of the plug I just did not know. The threads look good in the aluminum case. The plug looks banged up on the outside and maybe bent, but...
