Re: How to properly use the wire strap shown

See the pic below for proper application of the cable strap. You first will wrap the strap around the cable and draw it tight by threading the free end "tail" back through the innermost rectangular hole. Now wrap the strap around the frame tube and feed the tail of the strap through the outermost r...

Re: Rebuilding TC5560

I did a quick check of FTFU, Moss, Abingdon Spares, Naylor Bros, Anglio and Rimmer. No one offers gaskets or the TC door handles. TD yes, but they are different handles. Not a bad idea but I think you'll have to make your own out of thin rubber or poly film stock....

Re: Radiator Brace...Which way round?

As Steve said: The mount is a rubber grommet which is surrounded by a metal band. One grommet and band go above the bracket and one below, followed by a large washer and then a nut and a locking nut. I believe the nuts are 3/8 BSF - double nutted or a lock nut is good. As far as one can tell, the gr...

Re: Radiator Brace...Which way round?

Functionally, it makes no difference as the extension headlight cradle mounting hole will end up the same anyway. :thumbs:

Mark: Are you confident the new pump is identical to the old one? I know some pumps will interchange on mounting holes on other MG engines, Not sure on the TC but a short snout pump could be an issue possibly.

Is the engine number matching to the car or possibly an XPAG from a later car?

Re: Fan to water pump spacer

My TC 5141 does not have the spacer block. Both of my TD's did have it however. My spare XPAG engine out of a '53 TD has it also.

Re: Old topic on tub construction but new for me

Mike, Just a thought but have you talked with Craig Seabrook on this matter? I've always found him very helpful and willing to offer his sage advice. Also, Doug Pelton in Mesa, AZ is a good source as well. He has built numerous TC tubs and offers similar services that Craig does. I purchased my TC ...

Re: Grill to cowl fasteners

Brazing is pretty much the preferred method I believe Brad. It does discolor the chrome finish but in my case the only stud needing repair was on the bottom. so with some buffing and fine compound stick it came out ok. A high strength epoxy or similar solution may be available. Vibration is your en...

Have a competent machine shop do it for you. Take the crank, flywheel and new ring gear then have the crank magnafluxed, turned and balanced for new bearings. Have the shop install a new set of camshaft bearings for you and the camshaft if you have it. Have the flywheel magnafluxed and checked for b...
