    TR2/3/3A Re: Anyone running NGK spark plugs?

    The "5"s are hotter, which have a tendency to burn off deposits easier than colder plugs. If you are running rich, that may be why the engine is running smoother with the "5"s. I'd also put the gaps...

    TR2/3/3A Re: bonnet safety catch

    You have to be careful with all screw sizes smaller than 1/4" on the TR3. That stud seems to be a 10-32, but if I remove the nut, it will start to screw onto a 10-32 screw, but then stop. It's most...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Starter or Solenoid

    I'm not using the Ford solenoid as an aid, but rather as a replacement for the Lucas unit. Here's a picture, and as you can see it is constructed similar to the OE unit and it works the same way.

    I was one of those that had problems with a replacement solenoid. It would often stay engaged when you hit the starter button. I just went up to the local parts store and bought a Ford solenoid for...

    TR2/3/3A Re: carpet kit

    I also used a kit from TRF, but it was about ten or twelve years ago, so I don't remember which one it was or if they even had different grades back then. Actually, I got the whole interior from them.

    General TR Re: Wood rimmed steering wheels

    Great walnut burl! BTW, I have a Tourist Trophy wheel, and I don't know if it's just the wood, or how it is finished, but the feel on your hands is just wonderful. I suppose leather is better for...

    Re: MAD Magazine Ending After 67 Years

    Back in the late '50s, early '60s, my mother would always bring MAD home from the grocery store. There was always a fight as to who got to read it first. My mother died young (age 43 in '63), but I...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Wire wheel conversion question

    Well, Moss shows the spacers as 1/4". I believe that is the proper thickness. My car would be able to handle that OK. 1/2" would not leave enough thread for the nuts holding on the spline drives.
