  1. I use a standard plastic in-line fuel filter that is inserted into the rubber fuel line just before the pump. Stan
  2. I use the standard mechanical pump that the Stromberg's use, no regulator. I know I am not the only one. The only issue I have that is when the car sits for several days it takes a while to fill the float bowls. If I do go electric I'll fit a pump likely on the frame just below the tank. The electric pumps are generally designed to be gravity fed and act as pushers not pullers. The pump you are looking at has a low end of 2.5 psi which is about the max that you need so I would look at a pump with a lower operating range and similar for the regulator. You dont really want to rely on it working
  3. This is a set from TRF. I had ordered something else but they sent me this by mistake. The thick gasket with the wrap around is in two pieces but bonded so it looks like it will do the job.
  4. Good news John, you probably wont get rickets. I am as skeptical as anybody until we get a proper study which could take years and still not be conclusive but I got a chuckle out of this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC300808/ Stan
  5. Another retrospective study but quite comprehensive. SARS-CoV-2 positivity rates associated with circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0239252#pone-0239252-g001
  6. Thanks for the birthday wishes. It was a freakishly warm day today, 77 degrees F so we took the TR6 out for a very enjoyable scenic drive... and yes I took this selfie myself.
  7. Glad you got it sorted Steve. This is the picture from the workshop manual.
  8. I like it, Nicely done.
  9. I know we have a few geeks here.
  10. Thanks Neil, excellent point. While the Vitamin D discussion continues to be very educational there is other stuff going on. Better than a vaccine is everyone wearing a face mask when outside the home and cant guarantee the required separation. How are people doing where you live with that ?. Where I live each state has different requirements but the stores all pretty much require it and I dont see anyone objecting or refusing to do what is needed. Infection and death rates had stayed pretty flat for a while but now that schools are starting up we are seeing things tick up again. Hand sanitize
  11. Took the TR3a for a short drive around town. Foliage is starting to turn.
  12. It happens more than I would like here. Our cars are small, low down and dont have many of the visual cues that people are expecting. In addition people are paying less attention to the task at hand and more attention to who is liking their post on Facebook. Many of us fit a high viz LED brake light and I have a habit when I have to stop at an intersection to keep my foot on the brake until I see the vehicle behind slowing down. Stan
  13. Fantastic. Where is that darn Like button.
  14. Car looks good Sean, you have some great roads to enjoy it, it has an interesting history and you are making good progress with getting it sorted. TR6 ownership at its finest. Stan
  15. I think if you measure back 3 inches from the lip on a line perpendicular to the bolt holdling down the tonneau pegs you will be well into the hole. I think I would stick a scalpel blade through the pad at that point and find the edges. As pointed out already, dont go too deep and yes, if you ever need to change the leather washer in the oil gauge line this is the way to go. Good luck, let us know the outcome. Stan
