I'm putting things back together finally. What a joy to be assembling rather than taking apart stuff.

In this case, I cleaned all the old, hard grease out of the wheel boxes and drive cable, greased all up and put it in the car.

Then I found the flat washer on the floor. It had the old grease on it, so I know it came from the assembly, but where? I don't think that there is space for it on the gear. The only thing I can think of the that the cable might go through it before going into the wound cable housing.

It is one small diameter washer. As the car was acquired in parts, it maybe be missing one from the second wheel.box.

This is a TR2 setup, different from a TR3.

I don’t see any washers related to the wheelhouses.

My very early TR3 has those same wheelboxes, and don’t recall any washer either. Mine was built from boxes of parts too and only came with one wheelbox. Cheers, Mike
