    TR2/3/3A Re: 30a 5 pin universal relay

    Here is my most likely warped logic. I can buy 10 Chinese relays, shipping included, for about the price of one brand name unit. They can be changed in a minute. I guess I was lucky as my 2 year old...
  2. TR4/4A Re: tr4 pops out of second gear on deceleration

    Interesting, I've never tried to "adjust" those screws, instead I've left them very slightly lower than the surface, as they seemed to be when I took them out. I also find no mention of adjustment in...

    TR2/3/3A Re: I'm stuck... alternator/wiring/starting/?

    Did you switch the leads on the ammeter? I think that is polarity dependent.

    If it's in the selector, you can sometimes hold it in gear with the shift lever. If it's the top hat, you can't. Tom

    General Tech Re: Lucas Fog Lamps

    I think these will fit, but I haven't used them. They are positive earth and polarity dependent.

    Have you tried putting some goo on the bolts themselves?

    I think the oil cooler thermostat is only useful in cold conditions.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Hints on sealing the sump gasket.

    I'm probably being pessimistic but the timing cover has been known to leak where the tensioner finds a way to hit it, which it seems to do.

    TR6 Re: 1974 Tr6 ignition switch

    It's not that easy unless someone replaced it in the past. The two little screws only hold the electrical part. The original switch is held in by 2 tamper proof ("break away") bolts. There are...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Valve cover breather cap?

    Probably not since they took the lead out. There was a time when it was so commonly used that mechanics were getting lead poisoning. I quit using it 50 years ago and find odorless mineral spirits a...

    I think the book does say to rinse it in gasoline but I don't see why most solvents wouldn't do as well. Tom

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mini Pulses at Idle

    Try putting some heavy oil or grease on your throttle shafts where they go through the carb bodies and see if that stops it. If so that would mean the shafts and bushings are worn. The oil wont fix...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Spark Plug Gap?

    The TR2/3 manual does say .032. I wonder if there was a service bulletin at some point. I've always used .025 also but I don't remember where I got the number. Perhaps from the plug manufacturer's...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Noise from clutch area?

    The seats usually come out without protest. If the 3 screws on the bottom of the rails won't come out, take the bottom cushions out and unscrew the nuts that go on the studs that come up through the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Reproduction TR3A Grille

    I'd say your test will work fine. Around Macon the correction for altitude will most likely be less than a degree F and the correction for cruddy water couldn't be much more than that and neither...

  21. TR2/3/3A Re: Gas Gauge sending unit "float" orientation?

    The obvious answer is to place the float in the lowest position but you can't see that with the tank in the car. If you're asking what the outside part looks like I can post a picture of an original...
