The Tr6 has finally made it back from Virginia and now the restoration can begin. Initial “in the dark”inspection with a torch reveals solid floors, very little rust and basically a solid body. Yet to inspect the chassis but from what I can see, mostly good. Engine is noisy, no clunks but really noisy tappets. Carbs have a mind of their own and the engine runs hot in the short time I had it running. Fair amount of fuel around the engine bay so expect the pipe work to be perished. Didn’t run long as I didn’t want a bonfire having only just got her. Full examination on the weekend with daylight and fire extinguisher lol. First impressions..... could be a lot worse considering it was a picture purchase.
Hi, I am re-building and restoring my Princess calipers (SS pistons and new seels) and I have a couple of questions. First, how do I bleed them, given the three nipples? Second, after I take them back to bare metal, what is the best way to prevent rust? VHT clear coat (which brand, if any), zinc coating or something else? Cheers, Michael
