  1. Mine has steel disc wheels. T
  2. I use dollies on my TR3. I've got 5 cars in a 3 car garage most of the time and dollies are the only way to do that. The car sits on dollies pretty much all the time. My dollies are not hydraulic so it's a bit of a pain to jack the car up and down each time I drive it or store it. The advantage of the hydraulic one is that you don't need to find a way to jack the car in tight quarters so I do plan to get one set in the near future. Another advantage is that you can let the car down onto the tires if it will be stored for any lenght of time. Although it helps to have two people, you can move the car in any direction with very little force. Sometimes it takes a bit of extra force to start it moving if the dollie wheels are not in the proper direction but that is only a minor inconvenience and you'll get the technique worked out easily. I would not worry a bit about the wheels ant tires. Since I am in such tight quarters, I push the car from anywhere that's convenient. If the dolly wheels need to turn around I do try to push on tires or bumpers but I have pushed on both the front and rear wings without issues. Tom
  3. Ralph, While I understand why you don't want to disturb the front apron, it seems to me to be a whole lot easier to put the engine and transmission in with the apron off and and as a unit. I admit that I've never tried it with the apron on and have never been tempted to try it. I'll be interested to hear how you make out. Tom
  4. Just past the point of making a survivor/driver, imo, but still nice to have it pretty much intact and unmolested. Tom
  5. As G Denson said above, the gauge will absolutely not go through the hole. I double checked with my spares. Tom
  6. The bulb on my tube was stuck in the housing also. As I recall I removed the housing and thermostat and was able to tap and wiggle the tube out. There is a slight lip on the gauge itself after you remove the bezel and seal. I haven't tried it but it might just fit through the hole without the bezel. The bezel is crimped on and does not unscrew. Best to get the bulb free imo. Tom
  7. Most of the kits do not contain the seal that goes on the shaft that operates the diaphragm but that seal is rarely needed. If you do need it it doubles or triples the cost of the kit and may be hard to find. Last I knew, TRF had the kit with the seal. I've also used the Moss kit without issues but their kit does not have that seal. Tom
  8. Seems the year was suggested by the registration document. Not really a car but a collection of parts from several and bid accordingly at £510 as of today.
  9. I think there were variations of a lift on this forum, which someone will hopefully post, but here is one from another. You can do it manually but it is awkward and heavy. https://www.triumphexp.com/forum/tr2-and-tr3-forum.6/tr3-transmission-removal-and-replacement.1574518/ Tom
  10. Right Stan. When I tried to renew I could not access the members area and I think I may have set up a duplicate account. Things went downhill from there. However I am now listed as a member rather than a user on the forum, which was my concern. I've got a better idea of how this all works thanks to Wayne's efforts and will try logging in again when I finish warming my backside here in Marathon FL. Cheers, Tom
  11. Thanks very much for the reply but I am unable to access my membership number. Your system does not recognize my email, nute_shop@hotmail.com so I cannot retrieve or reset my password. The password that I have, which I'm quite sure is correct, does not work with my user name or my email. I used your link to update my profile using the same email and still cannot access the members area. At this point I am quite frustrated and regret that I cannot participate as a member of your otherwise excellent organization. I'll also miss my copy of TR Action which I read cover to cover. I am not laying blame and make no excuses other than my inability to cope the requirements of your system. With Regrets, TomMull FWIW, I don't think I got a notification of your reply even though that option was checked on my post.
  12. I've become disconnected from my user name. I was registered at one point under my "TomMull" user name and after failing to renew for a few years finally got it renewed recently. When I tried to renew, I failed to login under that user name and unwisely created a new one "GreenTurtle" or "Greenturtle" in order to renew the membership and I guess I created a new user name. Now, I cannot retrieve the TomMull user name since it shows that it is already in use. I still use the TomMull username on the forum but of course I show as an unregistered user. I would like to re-connect with that name. I am, as you can probably tell, not particularly compatible with the information age. I did send a message under the Register's contact link with no response as yet. Any help will be appreciated. Tom
  13. You might also make sure the interlocks are in place if you take the cover off. (Put the selector in first gear position and try to move the other rails. They should not move.) Tom
  14. Here is a Long Door on BAT in the US. Lots of "upgrades" but looks quite solid to me. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1954-triumph-tr2-3/ Tom
