    New Member from Northern California

    Hello. As the title says I am new here, and also new to the "forum" thing, so am a bit confused right now. I'll pick it up soon, though.

    I am just starting to really get into the glorious and frustrating business of personally maintaining the 1959 TR-3A I've had for 10 years. It has always run well and I've had precious little reason to work on it. No longer: the differential is apparently shot. I can do basic mechanical repairs, but rebuilding a differential is beyond me -- and a guy at Moss just told me that I need to find a shop that is specially set up to do differentials. He also said that it would be cheaper to rebuild it with new parts than try to replace the whole thing. I tend to favor that as well, as I have misgivings about replacing it with an old assembly that may just break on me pretty soon down the road.

    QUESTION FOR ANYONE: Do you know of a reliable place, in or close to San Francisco, that could rebuild my differential? Any suggestions or comments are much appreciated.

    Thanks. Talon

    Hi Talon,

    "Welome" to the BCF. "THEE" best LBC site anywhere.

    I would suggest you post your question on the "Triumph Forum" and I'm certain someone from your area will help you out.

    Happy Hunting.

    Welcome, and good luck with your differential!
    Never tease an old dog, he might have one bite left.

    Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
