  1. Hi Roger, Thanks for your reply. I'm not aware of play in the front wheel bearingsĀ  but will go and check this.


  2. My TR3 (TS 21965) has an ongoing brake problem. When first used this year there was a lot of pedal movement and so I bled the brakes resulting in the usual excellent pedal and effective brakes. This soon "went off" and I have since carried out two further bleedings with the same result. The fluid level in the reservoir does not drop and I can see no signs of leakage anywhere. Anyone had a similar vexperience? Any suggestions?
  3. I've always felt that the gearbox in my TR3a is odd; it "feels" different. The speedo also reads about 33% slow. Whilst I havn't yet taken off the gearbox cover I have found that there is a small added panel that covers the speedo drive from the gearbox. Upon removing this I found that, unlike other TR2's and 3's I have had, the speedo cable is not screwed into the gearbox box to a right angled drive so I wonder what gearbox I have. Any ideas?

I touched the T terminal (Green/black wire still connected) with the new eart wire and the gauge needle shot to empty. I guess this means that the gauge is OK. 3 I have checked earth connectivity between battery and sender. This is fine. 4. I have checked connectivity from tank sender to T terminal on the gauge and s
  6. Thanks Bob, I will get on with this this week. Dave
  7. One of a number of electrical problems with my TR 3 was that the petrol gauge always read full. Over the last couple of months I have fitted a new wiring harness and was careful to ensure that the body of the gauge (via its mounting thread) was earthed as shown in the wiring diagram. However, it stll reads full when there is, at best, a quarter of a tankful. Does anyone have any helpful ideas? Dave Whitefoot (again)
  8. Thanks for your replies. Another job to try come winter, Dave
  9. Has anybody changed the rubber seal between hood and windscreen top? Do you have to dismantle the windscreen or can it be pushed into place? If so - any tips?
