  1. TR2/3/3A Re: Question on wiring Denso alternator through ammeter

    An easier way to get the operating information you need is to use a TR6 (or similar) Voltmeter and switch to the convex glass from your TR3 ammeter. Monitors Volts and looks correct.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Heater tap locking nut

    General TR Re: Moto-Lita wheel refinishing

    Can we have a look at it?
    We will then be able to make better recommendations.
