When I Waxoiled my Tr2/3 chassis I found that I could pass a thick wire from the rear end right through to the front end. There are cross-tubes at various points but they don't form a complete blockage.

At the time the chassis was completely bare so I could elevate the rear end  and using a purpose made funnel I could pour hot Waxoil down the chassis rails until it came out of the holes at the front then flip the chassis over, drop the rear end, elevate the front end and collect the surplus waxoil as it poured out at the rear.

There are various small holes in the sides of the chassis that need to covered with masking tape. 

Hope that helps.

Regards, Colin

I drilled my chassis and used a Bilt Hamber product Dynax s 50 which was easy to inject. It came with a lance. I had a plan for the correct place to drill the holes but I can not find it at the moment. I will check the garage tomorrow. 

Someone else may have access here. It may have come from Macy's garage in the USA who are very  accurate about TR problems.

Good luck Richard & B.

Hi there,

Years ago there was a very basic trick that turned a piece of plastic pipe into a 360 degree spray.

Take a small diameter length of hose and mark off with indelible marker in foot lengths. Say three to four foot inside chassis tube.

Take a nail ideally soft metal like alloy felt nail in a smaller diameter than the tube. Flatten the end tip only like a spade (this locates it in place in the tube).

Push nail into the pipe till the flat head end is 1-2mm from the pipe end. you must have flow round this (suggest that you blow through to check)

You now have a dead head tube which pushes fluid against the nail head like putting your thumb over a garden hose. Using tube markers you can assess how far you have covered inside the chassis section.

You get a 360 degree spray that covers much more than a straight tube inserted.

If you keep Waxoil can in boiling water it flows much easier.

I take no credit for this other than still being able to remember it after all this time, and yes I did inhale!!!!!!

Regards 

Rod
