Hello. My father died in 1988 and had a TR4A that I havegaraged since then (he had stopped driving it a few months before he diedbecause it needed a brake job). It needs a substantial amount of work of coursebut there is very little rust and the body is in great shape. Anyway, I have now moved the car from mydetached garage to my attached garage where it is physically andpsychologically more available and I am committed to getting going with it. Ihave searched the first steps to do in the process of getting ready to try to startan engine after 30 years and have kind of put together a syntheses of what todo. My question to the forum is what would you suggest specific to the Triumph.For example, I have obtained a Workshop Manual and have been studying it andsee an oil pumper filter gauze in the sump. That seems like something thatwould deteriorate and contaminate new oil after changing what is in it. Butthen I don’t really know exactly what that means. Any input from the knowledgeablemembers here would be appreciated. Thanks. Raleigh Sanford.
