    Fitting a hood stick cover

    I got tired of mine flapping even with all the stock bits used. I bought a piece of foam insulation meant for 3/4 inch water pipes. It is about 4 ft long and about 2 inch in diameter and quite pliable. I stuff it in with the flap and it holds everything snug. Doesn’t hurt anything and can’t be seen. Cheers, Mike

    Rare Standard and Triumph Booklet?

    Yes, I am sure a number of us would be interested in a scanned copy of both booklets mentioned in this thread. Cheers, Mike

    Lockheed master cylinder

    Had similar issues bleeding the clutch. Tried everything suggested here with no luck. What I found to work was to create a dummy top plate with a air valve in it. I applied a little pressure with a hand bicycle pump. Once there was some pressure, opened breed screw and out came the fluid. Once you do that problems are gone. I must have spend 2 weeks fiddling with this before I decided to take a new approach. Good luck and let me know if you need more details. Cheers, Mike https://photos.app.goo.gl/MB93Qt44Y9N5DupZ7
  9. I’d just be happy you seem to have found the fault. Cheers, Mike

    Very early lockheed axle.

    My backing plates (early 56 TR3) had provision for springs but none came with car. I added some after much debate. Here is a link (https://photos.app.goo.gl/EJWNt4m6SDWmXVVs8) to a picture of my backing plate showing part number and spring attachment point. Also page from parts catalogue showing how parts changed over time. Yellow mark shows wear I was worried about in case springs were causing issue after installation. Cheers, Mike

    Early TR2 front water pipe.

    Thanks for the links. Bob, interesting that your controller failed too. Perhaps an issue they are not acknowledging. Cheers, Mike

    Early TR2 front water pipe.

    Rod, does someone sell a pipe with the thermo switch attached, or do you mean you can add one yourself? Bought a Revotec fan kit via Rimmers and the thermo switch quit working after about 500 miles. Revotec is not willing to replace switch so looking at other alternatives. Meanwhile, on-off switch under dash works fine. Cheers, Mike

    Don Elliott R.I.P

    This is sad news indeed. First met Don online while restoring my 56 TR3. During the restoration Don "dropped in" to our home in 2011 to see how the restoration was going and to give me a ride in his 58 TR3 to "encourage" me with my work. Later I met him at several British car shows and we always had great visits together. He was always engaging and helpful. A real loss within the TR3 world. Here is a picture from 2015 when our TR3s were together in Ottawa. Cheers, Mike https://photos.app.goo.gl/y9r1d8VMGUD3cLa52

    Lockheed brakes

    Hi Rod Here is a table I put together when trying to sort out brake lines on my early TR3 (with Lockheed brakes) with Goodridge. Not sure they are the same as TR2, but perhaps this will help. https://photos.app.goo.gl/4IFCEBJqw2GDNMH83 Cheers, Mike
