    Spitfire Re: 20-50 oil says run in car manuel

    A 10W-40 should be fine in very cold temperatures, by which I mean well below freezing!

    Post-War Other Re: Tr-10

    I wonder if that fleet of "panel trucks" you saw might have been Standard Vanguards? Not too likely, as they weren't sold much in North America, except perhaps in Canada. Those would have had the...

    General TR Re: 1962 Herald Convertible

    And there are some of us with...ahem...more than a few (Heralds, that is)! :laugh:
  4. TR2/3/3A Re: Seeking advice on how to repair TR3 steering wheel broken spoke.

    1. I'm not sure it's worth the effort to properly and safely repair that. As others suggest, a used one should not be that difficult to locate.
    2. I'd be very, very concerned about the integrity of...

    May I be the first to suggest that a: you keep a fire extinguisher with you at all times; and b: consider a new, properly made wire harness ASAP?

    General TR Re: British Heritage Certificate

    One thing I like about having the certificates is that they help to confirm "unusual" history of a car. It so happens that several of my cars were originally "Personal Export Delivery" cars. In most...

  9. TR2/3/3A Re: What weight transmission oil in a tr3 with OD?

    Yeah, it is "kind of expensive"; on the other hand, I'll second Randall's comments about noticeably better shifting (in a Herald/Spitfire box, in my case). Also, if your car is anything beyond a $700...

    Spitfire Re: Anti-Roll Bar

    A quick scan of eBay under "Triumph Spitfire A-arm" or "Triumph Spitfire control arm" should bring up several from which to choose. Also, check your local Craigslist and such, try contacting local...

    Spitfire Re: Anti-Roll Bar

    I have seen problems in that area, but not all that frequently. (For example, in well over a dozen Heralds, along with Spitfires and GT6s, I've never had it happen.) Meanwhile, someone certainly has...

    TR6 Re: Steering Column Loose

    Ok, that makes sense! I readily admit to being far more familiar with the "Small Triumphs" than with the later TRs such as the TR6. I know the wood facia is "slotted" at the bottom; would removing...

    Is there something different about TR6 columns that required you to remove the ignition lock? I've taken several (essentially identical) columns out of Spitfires and GT6s without first removing the...

    ISTR that the early TR4 rack had 2 1/4 turns lock-to-lock...but don't quote me on that!
  18. Post-War Other Re: HERALD Simple Task turns into another project.

    Replacement boots can be found, although I'll be darned if I remember where I've seen them! I don't know, though, that I've ever seen replacement tie rod ends sold without them! On the other hand,...
  19. Post-War Other Re: HERALD Simple Task turns into another project.

    GSJ158 is the current "generic" part number for the tie rod end; they fit all Heralds, Spitfires, Vitesses and GT6s. I'd look into either Spitbits ($10)for the GSJ158 or Stanpart 146728 from The...
  20. TR6 Re: Help with points and condenser on '74 TR6 -- or better, choices to get rid of 'em

    I'll bravely go one step further and say that points will almost always work...to some degree...until they don't. Unless a condensor or rotor or something has failed, even the best quality set of...

    Well, the cutaway was correct...for 1959 and a 948cc twin-carb Herald engine. But things really didn't change all that much in 10 years! :D
