  1. On my 3A, brakes all re-done with new stuff, brake fluid squirts out the pin hole on top of the reservoir. Not much, just enough to take the paint off part of the lid. On the one in the picture, from my TR3, PO must have had the same problem. He soldered the curly copper tube over the hole and I’m assuming that would prevent the little squirt from ruining the paint. Good point about clearing the bonnet. It does with about an inch to spare. On the TR3, It’s a long way off but I’m switching to dot5 when the time comes. So the curly copper tube will just be a conversation piece. By then I’ll have thought up a good lie or two about it too. Current status pics
  2. From previous owner, cleaned polished and painted by me. It will be a few years before I know if fluid still squirts out but I don’t think it will. And it looks awfully cool to me. Paul
  3. If you go to the Triumphexp.com site under the TR3 Forum, under the title “Paint, or Not another Red, Green or fill in the blank TR3” about fifteen subjects from the top is an interesting explanation of the correct BRG. Paul

  6. Do you have a pic? Thanks, Paul
  7. Thanks. I used the bolt on version from Moss. Paul
  8. Iain, it’s too late for me but which r&p system doesn’t increase the turning radius? Thanks, Paul
  9. Richard didn’t mention and there is usually a nut loose behind the wheel.
  10. Am not sure about vibration, but I think everything on my 3A was put together (by me) correctly but fluid has always “misted” out of the pin hole on the lid of the reservoir. Not a lot, just enough to ruin every bit of paint it touches. The attached photo is of the reservoir lid from the TR3 (I polished and painted it) I’m now working on. Not only does it look cool, when I get things together I’m hoping it will eliminate the reservoir “mist”. Paul
  11. I know, I’ve got two. I give rides at various charity events, free, no taxi meter.
  12. Tony, I can’t believe you took my comment seriously.
  13. “Original Rob Slotermaker/Triumph Competition SpeedPilot and Halda”...I’m disappointed I thought it was a taxi meter.
  14. Ian, Winchester blue is what I was hoping for. Thats what mine was originally and will be again one day. Here is another example of my getting the cart before the horse.
