  1. Many thanks Bob, I had not considered an internal bearing.
  2. Thank you for your interest chaps --the rev counter works well until the revs increase and then the screaming starts suggesting an imperfect location in the entry to the instrument. I was just wondering how I might effect a DIY cure on what I believe to be the loose connection. I will remove from the dash and examine the fit.
  3. I have installed a new cable in a very original rev counter but as the revs increase the cable obviously fails to grip the female drive and the screaming necessitates removal. Apart from having the complete gauge serviced are their any suggestions as to how I might effect a cure? Araldite perhaps ?
  4. Rod, I have reached the same point in my refurbishment of my TR3 seats. Roger Williams book is as always a great help with a photo of the seat back with horse hair padding and the horseshoe shaped pad in place. I presume that this u shaped pad gives a degree of concave support and should not be infilled. In the past I have used a plastic bag to ease the cover into position and then left it in place. The usual chaps are slow to respond to our mutual need for advice, but I am sure that will come. In the meantime wrestle on. David.
  5. First class response gentlemen and thank you for taking the time to photograph the fixing. Spire nuts it is then, despite the premature covering of my crash pad !! Regards, David.
  6. How is the grab handle secured to the dashboard rail. ((The "OMG" handle)Two cut outs are evident but its not obvious how these might be utilized A spire nut is listed in the parts list. any advice or photos would be gratefully received.
  7. I am missing one hub cap for my TR 3. It's omission detracts somewhat from the very recent rebuild --newly painted wheels attached for the first time yesterday, only to find long stored hub caps box only contained three correct items. Any help with an improvement on the suggestion that I have but three wheels on my wagon and the provision of a hubcap would be gratefully appreciated.
  8. Many thanks Tom for the very useful Photos--much appreciated. D
  9. With regard to this topic may I have some advice on the correct route for the speedo cable on a right hand TR3 . I am engaged in the final stages ( yes right!! ) of a rebuild and left to right conversion. David.
  10. I am In the process of converting left hand drive to right hand drive. It is not obvious where the dipswitch bracket attaches to the floor/ bulkhead for a right hand drive car. I have sourced the correct RH bracket. A description or photo would be most welcome. Regards, David.
  11. Sorry chaps , but I too am battling with vacuum pipe issues. Should the vacuum pipe with the trap be fitted such that the trap functions in a certain direction? Is it a trap that can work in either direction or does it a have a one way valve function and is therefore directional.--reference Moss 12H733. vacuum pipe. David.
  12. Thank you gentlemen for the very rapid response, and apologies for referring to the wings rather than the nose cone. You would think that after staring at the front of my car for the best part of three years I would with, some accuracy, refer to the correct panel. Anyway thank you again for all the contributions. David. P.S Is anyone out there living with a side screen TR and in the Ledbury/Malvern Herefordshire area ?
  13. How are the headlamp bowls fitted to the wings on the TR3.? I have two beautifully restored and painted wings fitted to my Tr3 but the refurbishment by the first class bodyshop removed any evidence of how the headlamp bowls are secured leaving only square holes. It is obviously a "blind " fixing and suggests the need for one of those plastic push fit inserts to accept the self tapping screw, but would that have happened at assembly circa 1956? It seems a simple problem but without the opportunity to stare at a whole shelf of proprietary fixings advice would be appreciated.
