    TR2/3/3A Re: Running rich SUs.

    Like the man said, take the car out and thrash it good, then come home, shut it off and check the plugs. Don't worry if its a bit rich. As long as the plugs aren't gas fouled, you're ok. Too lean,...

    My TR6 does the same thing. Has done it for over 20 years. A rap of the knuckles and the tach comes to life.

    Re: What goes up must come down.

    After 39 years of struggling to lift the cellar garage door, I installed an electric eye opener. Cost $395.00. Should have done it years ago. Our regular 2-car garage has had a metal door for years....

    TR4/4A Re: Wheeler Dealers TR4

    I watched it last night. I was curious. Does the TR4 engine use thrust washers like the TR6? If so, they never even checked them, nor did they take the head off. I guess the compression was good and...

    I have an expandable ball retriever and an 8 ft stepladder - a good combination to get myself killed in a bad fall on uneven ground. The ladder is lightweight aluminum and not very steady.

    I don't think anyone has hit on it yet - or maybe yes, but got the year wrong. Please note that the tail lights go all across the rear. Where did the license plate go?
