    Re: Dead battery

    Further update. Even with the green knob turned all the way out - which is unnecessary - I still get a .02 volts reading when touching the green knob or the holddown bolt. It should read zero volts,...

    Re: Dead battery

    Elliot guessed it. He wins the prize. The ground cable clamp was (barely) touching the battery hold-down rod. Not wanting to bend the cable, I had kept it straight and tightened it up not realizing...

    Re: The times, they are

    My wife has the I-Phone and uses it constantly. It's very useful, especially when you're lost. She says "Directions Basil's house" and we get the route and a map. It also tells her how far ahead a...

    Re: Dead battery

    Ok - I think I discovered the source of the short circuit by accident, and when I discovered it, I burst out laughing at how simple and stupid it was. I discovered it by using my Radio Shack...

    TR6 Re: TR6 Door Glass

    1. Remove the door panels. Use a screwdriver and an ice pick or a nail to drive out the metal pieces holding the handles to the shafts.

    Vermont car show

    Spent four days in Vermont. Attended a car show in Waterbury. Over 100 cars - about 40 makes represented. I'd say 90% were American, mostly from the 1920s-1950s. Many Model A's, a couple of T's - the...

    Re: I do miss Gliding

    As a novice, you have to be aware of "stick lift". - the unconscious easing back of the stick trying to hold altitude. You start to climb but lose speed rapidly if you persist.

    Re: I do miss Gliding

    I flew only one time in a glider. Flew from Bridgeport up to Wurtsboro, NY where an ex-fighter pilot took me up in a glider. I learned fast what adverse yaw was. You had to lead into a turn with...

    Re: Seized Nut Removal

    My memory may be faulty, but as I recall, VW Beetles and (maybe) Porsches had lug bolts and no studs. Made tire changing fun when there were no studs to lift the tires onto. I use a jack today. Can't...

    TR6 Re: Clutch pedal click noise

    I'd have to use a mirror since I can no longer lay under or on top of a car. I'll also have to figure out what I'm looking for. I'll check my catalogs to see what's up there.
