This is how I did mine to make sure it worked until the right parts came along including the seal which does not fit, and it seems to work fine however do not bank on it being correct

Here's my TR6 MBV 513G, a 1969 CP car.
My third TR6 but the first since 1985!
Welcome back to proper motoring, I hear?
Big thanks to Andrew Smith and Allan Jezzard for advice, encouragement and support

Had a good day today working on the rear end of my TR2 restoration.
One of my problems was that the side drip channels were rotted out and I could not find anyone reproducing them.
Set about recreating from what I had and made up templates & formers to produce my own.
V pleased with outcome but just wondered if any other members would be interested in these before I lose the templates & formers.
I have made these over length at 55cm so can be cut to size. Also undrilled for wing fixing so could be used as a repair piece.
The up stand at the wing edge is also around 2mm higher than my sample to take into account corrosion etc but will just need a sand off to fit flush.
They were originally a 2 piece construction which I have copied and spot welded to as close to factory as I could make out. (spot welded not plug welded so no grinding out in the channel necessary)
If any members would like me to reproduce them then PM me. I reckon around 14 quid a side + p&p will cover my costs before I lose the templates!

I am aware that I have hi jacked this thread and I am sorry for that.I am fitting the RPV on the front tomorrow to see what changes it does and then report on in a new thread.
Regards Harry TR5 Nutter
New thread. I fitted RPV's from Willwood. 2 lb front and 10 lb rear close to the master cylinder.Took calipers off and machined the alloy support to give me equal clearances both side of the disc,s.Bled the system twice.Reversed out of my garage with a slight hump to pavement and braked,drove forwards and braked,same result as before long brake pedal. What the f$$k is going on!. Looked at buckeye.org for clues.I had all this with standard parts when first fitted up eight years ago.Been changing parts and upgraded with the same result.I will be looking at the rear cylinders as this has not been changed since the rebuild and could be here.I checked the servo push rod and adjusted up too far, I now believe according to buckeye.It should have 35 thou clearance and could be here.The pedal is rock hard with the engine off.I put the old master cylinder back on as the new one did not make any difference.I just can not believe something so simple can cause so much grief.This time I am going to persevere till I solve it,BUT WHAT!
Regards Harry TR5 Nutter

many thanks. Is the Haynes manual to be recommended ? I was hopeing to bick up one of those brown bibles but .......
I prefer the Brown bible, you should get one. However it did not have the torque setting
required, hence the Haynes.
If some one knows otherwise, instead of pressing silly little red buttons on post,
dont hide behind your keyboard, if you have a comment, bloody make it!!
We are all here to help each other after all. Rant over

25 years with one of the Pi saloons, I never once dreamed of converting it to carbs, I was proud of it being a Pi, and yes, at one time or another I had every part of the system into it's component parts. Once you absorb all the available information about the system it becomes infinitely tune-able for either power or economy and with some patience both.
