After just shy of 2 months at Paltech in Ohio, I received my carbs and
manifold back this week. What a relief to find that they ran great right out
of the box. The workmanship and finish are exemplary. If you can afford the
down-time and need similar work done, I highly recommend this company. Those
on the list that recommended this company to me were right. My only
complaint was that the shipment packaging was no where near the quality I
would expect for my delicate and pricey cargo. Pictures of carbs and
manifold on my Facebook page.

On a different note, FYI I was able to cure a long-time differential clunk
problem by replacing the side gear bushings (now fiber) and planet gear
bushings (brass) to tighten up this part of the gear train. Installed
pinion/crown gear backlash is .005 average. I was also able to replace a
single cracked carrier bearing cap (I received an entire used unit from Ted
Schumacher - another one I highly recommend). I got lucky because one of the
caps on the unit I received was almost exact in critical dimensions to the
cracked one. I think I dodged a bullet, but time will tell.

I found Jeff back in '06
(tr6.danielsonfamily.org/CarbRebuild2006.htm) and have been
recommending him ever since. He does a super job on both the refinishing and
the rebuilding.

Brian,

I decided to go with the Hitachi SU HS6 upgrade offered by Jeff.
I posted a photo on the 6-pack list.
6-pack.org/sixpack/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=15146&highlight=

Scroll down to you see the post with the engine bay in French blue with the
yellow TR3 and white TR4 avatar. That is me.

I agree with you, Jeff sure does nice work.
And yesterday I finally completed enough of the wiring of the dash to give the
engine a start and it started right up ran pretty good for a freshly rebuilt
engine, dist, and carbs. Still needs some sorting out but that will happen
when I can get it out of the garage.

Bob
