Tech Index

This is the index to a series of web pages intended to disseminate technical information related to T-series MGs, especially TDs and TFs.  TAs, TBs and TCs are well taken care of from a number of sources, especially,, and  I'm also rather inclined toward TD stuff, being as how I'm the proud owner of a 1952 TD named Lazarus.

 A substantial amount of the information on these pages will be gleaned from my own experiences and is strictly my opinion.  There's no way on earth that I can always be right so I'll have to warn you ahead of time that these are just my opinions and observations.  I hope that they never cause harm to anyone, but I can't be responsible for that.  If you follow my suggestions or recommendations, it's done at your own risk. I'll try not to plagiarize, but I'll be sharing information from others on a number of occasions.  I'll try my best to give credit where it is due.

A new section entitled 'Contributions' has been added to present contributions by others.

Unless they're being used as hyperlinks, most images will probably be thumbnails that will expand into larger images when you click on them.  I'll try to remember to place a link bar at the top of each page to allow you to return to where I suspect that you might want to get back to.  The index below is broken up into a few sections, including Lazarus and Tech Stuff.  The Lazarus section is a group of pages telling the story of my TD, Lazarus, and some of his adventures.
