    Re: Honda spark plugs

    I did the plugs on my wife's Fit a few months back, not quite at 100,000 miles yet, but over ten years old. Not a huge job, but you had to take the stupid plastic engine cover off. I won the plugs...

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

    Just read through this, good luck. Sounds like you are doing all the right things, but chasing leaks in our old British cars can be a hard test of skill and patience.

    TR6 Re: Twitchy rear end

    If everything else seems fine and you still don't like how your rear end feels in certain situations I would try a rear sway bar, I drove my car a little before I fit the rear bar, it went from...

    No expertise here, years ago I had an MGB GT with an oil cooler. To my knowledge no thermostats were used on these to my knowledge and it all worked fine. Main difference I noted was it took longer...

    TR6 Re: TR6 Door Glass

    It is kind of a distant memory, but I know my windows didn't line up well with the windshield when I did my TR250. I recall adjusting the windshield to get the angle and gap right.

    Re: 1275 EN40 Crank

    Looks like .030" and .040" rod bearings are pretty common, so it doesn't sound like the crank is toast.
