Re: TC Air Cleaner

Go To http://www.tcmotoringguild.org and search for "MODIFYING A STOCK TC AIR CLEANER" by Joe Douglass. You will need to make one simple sheet metal bracket. Instructions are straight forward. You can then use throw away paper elements made by Purolator, Clark and others.

Re: My 1948 TC leaf springs service

Glad it worked for you, I bent my first one "cold" and it broke. Had to braze it. I bent the rest hot and also hot on reassembly. I used a Mylar tape between each spring leaf on reassembly after epoxy painting, no thicker than masking tape. Applied a thin coating of grease and put it all together. V...

Re: My 1948 TC leaf springs service

Yes, heat in moderation. the clips are ok to heat and bend otherwise the 69 year old metal will likely break if you bend it cold. You'll have to judiciously apply some heat to refold them on final ass'y as well then touch up with paint to match unless you're going to dip them. .....

Re: My 1948 TC leaf springs service

I stripped by soda blasting, then primed with epoxy 2 part black and finished with epoxy satin black. Then a strip of sticky back Mylar tape to each leaf on the contact side. The tape is no thicker than regular masking tape. On assembly, we brushed on a thin coating of regular wheel bearing grease. ...

Re: Lucas ammeter

Call Craig Seabrook at the Whitworth shop, Novelty, Ohio. He may be able to direct you to a good repair house out west or have you send the unit to him in Ohio. I had him redo all of my gages when he did a new Burled Walnut dash for me on my '48.

Re: Mixture Adjustment on TC with Twin SU 1 1/4 Carbs

Weigh in Joe Curto, what say you! I've experienced this before on a MGB. Changing the disks and one shaft out was the solution there.

Thanks, Marv

Re: Steering box rebuild

In all fairness, let's not forget Martin Cooke and Abingdon Spares, I purchased some of my bits from him for the BC box and had no issues with any of the items. Fairly priced and fast shipping.. Bob Grunau up in Canada had good quality worm gears plus other assorted bits as well. Easy to deal with a...

Hi Lew, There are a number of MOWOG databases out there floating around, why don't you post your MOWOG numbers and maybe you can get a hit. I've got one buried somewhere but I'm not sure how far back it goes.

Re: TC steering box

The felt pad is just a dust and dirt excluder that can be lightly oiled and tucked inside the column around the steering shaft and pushed down about 1/2" or so. I inserted the KOYO needle bearing which sort of centers the steering shaft and then pushed the felt down on top of that. I think I trimmed...

Pretty much the same on the reverse side too Richard. If you'll notice there is a heavy line of Prussian blue at the root and the leading edge of the teeth and the central area is filmed thinner by contact. I used too much bluing and the heavy lines are where the bluing squeezed out and left a heavi...
