Resources?

What happened to the listing for "Resources"? I accidently clicked on the picture above and got taken back to the old site where I found them so had my original question answered but curious if there's going to be an obvious link to "Resources, Members, etc" in the future? Be that as it may....thank...

Re: 'water on the head', no not that one, the cylinder head!

Chris...I have had water on a head bolt in the past...it was the one on the right rear. I used loctite on it and never saw water again. Since it’s all of your head bolts though I’d have to go along with the rest...either a head gasket or a torque problem. Another thought, does your head match your b...

Re: TC starting handle

The XPAW engine is basically the same engine as the XPAG so dimensionally they’re the same.

Re: Converting from lhd to rhd

Why not post this on a TD/TF website? The steering/front end of the TA/TB/TC is completely different than your TF and it’s doubtful you’ll get much help here.

Re: 1949 TC gap between the running boards and rear wings.

On the TC there is a definite gap and it will vary between cars.

According to page 215 of TC's Forever: "Running Board....The butted rear end is curved to match the rear wing front face but does not reach it, leaving a small gap"

Re: VW STEERING BOX

Tom, I have 2 TC's, one with the Datsun conversion and one with the VW conversion. I've also driven TC's with the BC box so I feel like I can speak from experience. Yes, a properly set-up BC box has a sporty feel on the road and a smaller turning radius but unless it's "properly" set-up it's a bitch...

Re: Speedo drive

Norman, Not sure you can get to it from the inside but I've never tried. Take a blunt (flat faced) punch and tap the sides of the drive flange from side to side (maybe try some 50% ATF/acetone mixture to soak around the edges first. Once you get it moving you should be able to wiggle it out. The oth...

Re: Pressing tapered halfshaft into hub?

Kam, I'd email Roger and ask what the diameter of the axle shaft should be just to make sure there wasn't a machining error. They should be the same diameter as the original axles in that area.
