    Glad you're back at work. It sounds like everything is starting to line up...1/4" is well within the limit to look straight, which is the determining factor on these cars.

    I do know that if you open the bleeders too much they will suck air. So the air is not from the system, but introduced through the bleeder screw threads. Only crack the bleeders just enough to get...

    Ah...the "sill" in the title confused me. We are talking about the mounts in the engine room! Is it an illusion, or is the frame diagonal on the driver's side a bit bent inward? For those holes to...

    You can pull the wires back through the tube to get enough access to work on the trafficator in place, assuming the wires are in relatively good condition.

    TR2/3/3A » Re: Inner sill opinion

    Hey Frank,

    As far as tolerances, I think the factory must have used about 1/2" on the body. If you can get it inside 1/4" you are doing great. With the poor stampings we are dealing with it...

    During my rebuilds I have always had to take a few thousandths off the washers to get the clearance right. Half would be too much, though!

    Confused...the nut is backed out a thread too far or in a thread too far?

    Also, not sure how it could leak at the threads, as they are normally machined from the same piece of metal as the seal...

    TR6 » Re: High Compression in One Cylinder

    Dry carbon would still increase compression when oil is added to the cylinder. In other words, adding oil should always bump compression a bit...unless the oil the already there.

    TR6 » Re: High Compression in One Cylinder

    The key here is that adding oil did not increase compression. Even in a carboned chamber adding oil should show an increase. This again points to an oil control problem in that cylinder.

    It is a sign of oil in the cylinder. If only one cylinder has a carbon build up, then that is still a sign of bad oil control in that cylinder. Causes would be intake valve guide/seal, piston...
