Re: Front Main Spring

I also have a 1959 Triumph TR3 and the original service manual states use the drain oil after each oil change to paint the leaf springs. I don't think the meant using all five quarts.

Re: Engine pans

I have had engine pans on my sedan almost 40 years and never had a problem with them breaking. I was lucky and found original ford plans and had them powder coated black.

Re: Front motor mount fixed!

Synchro to stop the squeaking open up the center hole a little bit for clearance and put a little grease around the hole.
The Service manual shows a change in this flat spring.

Re: Primer for YOM plates

You should be fine but try and use the same manufacture for the top coat of paint . Read the labels on the can for the correct time between coats.

Re: air bubbles in rad water.

I have seen small gas bubbles in engines with no head gasket problems. This is caused by local hot spots which boil some of the coolant releasing oxygen molecules.

Re: Fan replacement

After losing a fan 35 years ago I went with the aluminum fan which came powder coated black and balanced. I would never run a original fan again.

Re: Failing gas tank sealant

I think I would forget the pencil filter and build what's called a dirty leg. Do a search on this site to see how it is made and run with it until the flanking stops.

Re: 31 slant window outside door handle sag

I agree with what Duke36 has suggested and have fixed many this way. I don't use pliers to make the slight twist I use an 8 inch Cresent wrench.
