  1. I found that the replacement pins were all slightly oversized, which might be OK, since some of the wear is to the bore. The bores will still likely need drilling and/or reaming. If the bores are too big, you can sleeve them. Boring TR6 hinges: http://bullfire.net/TR6/TR6-62/TR6-62.html Sleeving GT6 hinges: http://bullfire.net/GT6/GT6-40/GT6-40.html Ed
  2. It's not easy to find good information on this, but here is some pure speculation: The Four wire may have an explicit ground wire, while the two wire uses the case for the ground connection. There are two ways for the regulator to sense the system voltage. In "remote sense", there is an explicit wire that connects directly to the battery. In "machine sense", the regulator senses battery voltage from the same wire that charges the battery. This might be hogwash. Ed
  3. You could consider Italian-made Spal fans: http://bullfire.net/GT6/GT6-58/GT6-58.html Ed
  4. This is a useful table for comparing plastics properties. Ignoring the engineering ("designer") plastics, and focusing on some of the more common plastics for this application, Delrin acetal is designated as POM H, Nylons as PA, UHMWPE as UMHW, Teflon as PTFE. The most important properties would be Compressive Strength (higher is better) and Coefficient of Friction (lower is better). For example, PTFE (Teflon) is very slippery, but also very weak in compression. The table doesn't seem to include fortified plastics, like Nylatron, which I believe is just a Nylon infused with Molybdenum disulfide to reduce friction, which would seem to make it a good candidate. https://precisionpunch.com/wp-content/pdf/PropertyComparisonChart.pdf

  6. I used Delrin (Acetal). It is almost as slippery as PTFE, but has much higher compressive strength. Ed
  7. Signs like that are a thing. This is on my office wall. Ed

  9. Colin-- I didn't keep meticulous records beyond what's on my page, but I'm sure that all mounting points had at least one pad. Ed
  10. This is a common confusion. All the suppliers disagree. See if this helps. It's for a GT6, but it should be similar. Actual body mounting starts about halfway down the page. http://bullfire.net/GT6/GT6-42/GT6-42.html Ed
  11. One popular home brew penetrant is just ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) mixed with some combination of acetone, kerosene, and/or mineral spirits. If mild anti rust properties are needed, lanolin is sometimes added. Ed

    Tom-- If you are planning a rotisserie restoration, you presumably have some welding skills. Have you considered building a rotisserie? Ed
  13. Thanks, Peter. No grease nipple, but plenty of anti-seize. Ed
