  1. Hello The later arms had a bigger Webb on the shock absorber mount not sure what year it came in Richard
  2. Hi Be aware that 035" gap may be correct measuring against the servo face, but the piston in the master cylinder can sit further in especially if not nos parts causing a bigger gap, I had a problem with long movement and trouble bleeding with new master cylinder checked against original one and piston was to far in, so adjusted nut to compensate. The 035" wood have been bigger to tighten up gap. An expantion gap should be there between servo rod and piston , Richard
  3. Hi Double checked First size bore .860" piston is .847" dia Second step down bore is .812" piston is .807" dia This is from an original 1975 master cylinder other years may be different ?? Regards Richard
  4. Hi Just checked a an orginal 1975 brake master cylinder. Not sure of the servo inner dia. Approx 6' 225" Master cylinder First bore is .860" 55/64" then steps down to .847" 13/16" Regards Richard
  5. Hi It may give you extra clearance to fit longer studs when assembled to car. Richard
  6. Hello My brother is building a mk1 group4 rally car he was told that the prop from gearbox to diff should not be completely In line as this can cause vibration but should be staggered, may be different with a fixed diff like TR Richard
  7. Hi Yes Tr6, tend to be on the US spec cars, seal can be got from Moss. Richard
  8. Hi By breathing across the probe does it measure your own co2 which should be about 3.5 to 4% , you would know if it's in the basic ballpark I've used an old patient monitor before to get a basic reading. Richard
  9. Hello I've had the same problem ended up only fitting drivers side,I think the rubber is not stiff enough if revington do a better Part may source from them. Richard

    Broken down ,

    Hello and apologies from a register member for not stopping to help, I was driving along the military road in the family car when the family shouted out tr6 and I was just happy to see one and reconised your car from the forum, had not realised you had broken down or would have stopped. Hope got home and sorted ok Apologies again Richard
  11. Tr6 Needles car park on Saturday and I think Pinky in his Tr6 on the Milatary Rd today. Richard
  12. Hello On the latest arms the ribs for the shock mounts are larger strengthening the shock mounting point. Richard
  13. Hi I think Craig Aldersons wheels are 7" rims as I was looking at his car at one of the nationals a few years ago when I was looking for new wheels which have a deeper rim dish. Richard
  14. Hi, I fitted a new steel carrier(unknown manufacture from a trade stall at stoneleigh) which had a smaller bore than the original worked fine on the bench but in use was very stiff so I Brought a bronze carrier and it was still binding on the shaft giving a hard clutch I got my brother to cylindrical grind it out to the standard steel size as the bore was smaller and it has since work fine, it appeares to me that bore to shaft clearance is quite critical to getting a smooth working clutch. Which ever carrier material is used Richard
  15. Hi I had the same issue a few years back and discoverd it was the piston but mine was too short compared to the original so gave long pedal travel and bleeding issues so I compared it to the original what the clearance should be And reset the servo push rod to suit and it worked fine. The clearance I gather is there so the piston can return fully with no interferance, so within reason As long as there is the correct clearance it will be fine, I don t think the manufacturers relise the importance of the piston lengh/depth in the TR6 aplication. Regards Richard
