Re: TD oil pump to TC conversation

afraid not Tom ... I'll try once again to clarify ... I am sure it is a legitimate modification. I have 3 TC's, 2 with engines. One engine is an early TC Xpag engine the other is a Xpag factory replacement engine which looks to be a TD. It was all disassembled so parts are mixed up but the oil pump ...

Re: TD oil pump to TC conversation

no probs :thumbs: Steve, so I suppose the question is ... is it feasible to modify the TD oil pump body then ... anyone know? ;)

Re: TD oil pump to TC conversation

thanks for the that Steve, however I'm not sure that has answered my question in how to modify the TD/TF pump so it does the same as a TC did originally? Clearly to do this a hole would have to be drilled I think on top of the pump to receive the external pipe to filter.

TD oil pump to TC conversation

Has anyone attempted or knows if and how a TD oil pump can be converted to be used on a TC engine?
That's to say it would then take the external top mounted oil pipe connection to the separate oil filter.

Re: Radiator top and bottom hose size

The cost of shipping heavy weighted parts across the water is prohibitive, so the offer from Tom as kind as it was isn't going happen ... unless he gave me them!
So, is there anyone in the UK, or perhaps Europe that has 1 or 2 radiators for sale please? Chris

Radiator top and bottom hose size

Hi, I wondered if anyone can please confirm what the size of top and bottom brass pipes are fitted to the radiator? Not the rubber but the brass external pipe sizes. Often these get replaced, damaged etc so wanted to make sure a radiator refit will be correctly assembled. thank you Chris :thumbs:

Re: MG TC radiator shell nose piece

ah, Steve there is nothing wrong with my radiator, but from what you have said is that my rad is actually a ... TD one. This all makes sense, especially as you have already stated the angle of water inlet is different ... this is what I see. So, I have wonderfully restored TD radiator for sale ... a...

Re: MG TC radiator shell nose piece

On a similar theme, I wondered if anyone knew if and what differences there are between a TD radiator and a TC one? Not the chrome part but just the core, brass and frame. :? I ask because after re-coring one of my radiators for TC4245, then trying to fit it to the chrome outer I see that the rad ca...

early XPAG oil-pump wanted

I have an excellent later TD oil pump (without top opening for brass/copper pipe to filter) but would willingly swap or perhaps purchase a genuine TC or early TD pump. Probably best if this was sourced within UK due to excessive shipping costs Chris (Notts, J28 M1)

Re: Pinion diff bearing #18

Yes Steve, I thought he did his own ... I have sent him a msg about his RA021 bearings; however it looks like you have to do machining work too along with shims etc, is this correct?

Re: Pinion diff bearing #18

Cheers for this Marv; yes, Moss Europe has them at £54.40
However, they charge a premium so perhaps I can find others (as i need 3, yes for 3 diffs) elsewhere if I can establish the dimensions! Does anyone therefore able to confirm whether these at Moss are 62x25x17mm?

Re: TC or TD engine?

Steve, you say that the head gasket on a TC and a TD are different. Assuming putting a TD gasket on a TD head is ok ... but what about a TC gasket on a TD head?
Why I ask is that this may be the answer to my water-leaking-head ... any logic in this you reckon?
