BETTER GEARBOX COUNTERSHAFTS, TR3B, TR4,
TR4A, TR250, TR6
“Specially Made for TRF of Harder Steel with Correct
Indexing of Holes and Slots”
The Roadster Factory has found that readily available countershafts are not
made as hard as they should be and that they are often not even machined
correctly.  We at TRF have solved the problem of knowing whether or not we
are selling good countershafts by having our own shafts manufactured correctly
at a U.S. manufacturer with high standards of quality.  Regrettably, this adds
some cost to the part, but we find that most customers are willing to pay a higher
price for a critical part they can trust.
Note that TRF recommends press-fit needle bearings over open-cage bearings
originally fitted to TR250 and TR6 countershafts.  The press-fit bearings are made
for higher performance with a complete ring of needle bearings, and the closed
cage provides a new bearing surface each time a new bearing is installed.

GL4 GEAR LUBE
“The Correct Grade for Classic Gearboxs and Diffs
with Yellow Metal Components”
Commonly available gear lube from auto parts stores is GL5
which actually contains additives harmful to yellow metal
components such as bronze bushes, gearbox synchros, thrust
washers, etc.  Some time ago, Castrol discontinued its version of
GL4, and we had nothing to sell for classic car owners for a while.
GL4 has now been reintroduced by American Refining Group, Inc.,
the makers of Penn Grade "1" oils.  This company now occupies the
old Kendall refinery in Bradford, Pennsylvania, where Kendall,
Amalie, and Wolf's Head oils were produced, and we thank them
for making this product available for British car enthusiasts.
