    Re: When do you replace things?

    When you find it, put it back in the box for next time.

    Re: When do you replace things?

    I do change the points on my old cars every Spring and usually look at the plugs at the same time. I almost always put them back in unless there's been a skip or they are badly worn or fouled, and I...

    Re: Scroll Air Compressor

    I'm sure my dentist has one similar but not suited to garage application; they are tankless (no reserve) and only 4 to 6 cfm.
    From your username can I assume you have a 70 Triumph Herald?

    General TR Re: 1962 Herald Convertible

    It would be nice to have another Herald in the group. Here is my '69 13/60. Sorry for the poor pic, I've got some better ones but they seem to hidden behind the cloud somewhere.

    I have not...

    Re: Scroll Air Compressor

    Yes, thanks Jerry, I can't seem to find anything to compare this with, although the big ones seem to be quite common. I wonder if there is any reason they can't be scaled down?

    Still looking for comments on using a scroll compressor in a small one person shop. I did read the comments, John, both negative and positive and am not scared away, at least not by the comments. I...

    Scroll Air Compressor

    Anybody have thoughts on one of these. An impressive 12.7 CFM claimed, small size and quiet. Too good to be true?

    Nothing here in the Northeast. Good price but Midwest only it would appear.

    Yes, I tried to indicate that in my initial reply but there is a limit that the pedal should safely "go down" when vacuum is applied. From what SherpaPilot seems to be saying is that his pedal goes...

    The late Tappet Brother Tom Magliozzi from NPR "Car Talk" devised a procedure using one of his favorite cigars. Sorry I couldn't find the episode on line.

    TR4/4A Re: rebound stop clearance issue

    I too have some trouble visualizing the problem. If you have a solid rear axle TR4A I can say that those chassis have been known to twist. It's pretty easy to see if you put the chassis on stands on...

    TR6 Re: Brake Pressure Problem

    If by "brake pressure seemed to drop" you mean that it becomes easier to push the pedal, that's what the booster is supposed to do. If the pedal does stop at some reasonable point above the floor...

    To translate from Peterk's chart, the E cam is the last in Kastener's grinds (A to G I think) suitable for street. Your's is in the race category. Tom

    Remove the inner cable from the outer then cut the outer with a hacksaw. Hopefully they have given you a sleeve to go over the cut end. Then feed the new cor through and mark the length. Wrap the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Questions on fuel pump installation

    I would feel much more comfortable with the 5/8 thread length but I think the 3/8 would be OK. You certainly don't want them too long as the hole in the block does not go through and is about 3/4"...

    My local hardware carries a good supply of automotive studs and I assume most do. If I can find some a bit long they are relatively easy to shorten. Tom

    TR2/3/3A Re: door blistering with rust

    If you get a good color mask you might try "back masking" around the spot with the rattle can and then compound the area. Better to do the whole door in my opinion or mask it off at the crease so you...

    Thanks, PJ. I know that if a disconnect failed my life would depend on the safety catch on the lift, not a chance I intend to take. So far have managed OK without a disconnect. Tom

    I don't have a TR6 so can't comment on the hard top but I can say my hat's off to you for keeping up your 375K car like a trailer queen. Keep on driving.
