Hi James Tencate. I recently converted the front struts from original to
needle bearing thrust washers, and I saved the original stuff on my 80 TR-7
with less than 40,000 miles showing. I am assuming you want the bearing
components only and not the metal cap/cones which support the bearings. Best I
remember, they are in good condition. I also have some older and cruddy parts
from another car.



Simple enough to post them to you once I locate the secure location where I
stored them. Please reply so that I know that this got thru to you.

Wedge List / Gas pump
« Last post by Bruce Riley on July 16, 2018, 02:26:18 PM »
Hey guys,

Need some quick help.  I am trying to take off the gas pump in my TR7

Spider and have run into some difficulty.  I got the right bolt off but the

left bolt seems to be covered with a metal bar that comes from just above

the pump.  The metal bar is welded to a couple of pipes that, I assume are

heater pipes.  So the bar extends down and is totally in front of the left

bolt and does not move to allow me to get at the bolt.  Any suggestions as

to what to do?

thanks and in the middle of......

I called Jeff and he does not have a supply, but had one and is sending it

to me.  Nice guy. Good chat.  He says that FAST is again supplying them and

that the last one he bought had it included.  He also said that it was the

transition from Crane to FAST where they ran out and Crane didn't reorder,

cause they were selling the company.



So, I called FAST to ask about it, as I sit here I have been on hold for 45

minutes.  I am going to give up and try again later, but it is possible they

are again included in the xr700-0300 kit.

And I can do some test prints using comparatively low temperature plastic.  I

can do ABS too but it is a low-ish temperature ABS "alloy".  I would not trust

it inside the engine compartment.  And when I print with the ABS, it is a

bitch to clear the print head to go back to the usual material.
