  1. I used SAE 30W non-detergent motor oil in my TR6 J-type OD for many years. No complaints, but found it was getting harder to find locally. No longer have the TR6 and my TR3 does not have OD. Cheers, Mike
  2. Small things aside, that seemed like a good buy for someone. Cheers, Mike
  3. Thanks John. I tend to stick to the TR3 part of the forum. Cheers, Mike
  4. Don’t see a posting about this sad news. Charles Runyan of TRF passed away this past weekend. A great loss to all Triumph enthusiasts. https://www.indianagazette.com/news/...0f2029c1e.html
  5. 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
  6. Thanks very much for sharing! Cheers, Mike
  7. Yes, I am sure a number of us would be interested in a scanned copy of both booklets mentioned in this thread. Cheers, Mike
  8. Hi Keith ... glad it worked out for you. Enjoy your drive! Cheers, Mike
  9. Gosh, and I thought I had stuff I'd forgotten about ... nice find! Cheers, Mike
  10. 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
  11. I’d just be happy you seem to have found the fault. Cheers, Mike
  12. 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
  13. Nice ... wonder if they will make their way to Canadian market? Cheers, Mike
