    It will be my fourth 10CR, but first time in my recently-restored TR6. My dad will also be taking part in his own TR6. Looking forward to it! Matt

    Hi there, and welcome. The 2000 bumpers definitely won't fit a TR – much too wide. Good luck! Matt
  3. I fitted a brand new TRW master cylinder unit to my TR6 when it went on the road earlier this year after a full restoration. Leaked from where the reservoir joined the cylinder itself, although it took a few miles and a repeatedly emptying reservoir before I worked out what was wrong. Easily fixed with a replacement rubber O-ring/seal between reservoir and master, but seems like the problem is still, well, a problem. Potentially a batch issue, as Mick states above, but I thought it worthy of a mention. Matt
  4. FWIW, that doesn't look anything out of the ordinary to me. As said, if there are any cracks then it is a different matter. Good luck!

    Mintex Pads

    Slightly off topic, but I use Mintex 1144 on my 2.5 saloon, and they are excellent for fast road work. Great bite and they never fade! Matt

    Go the tracking done on my '6 a couple of days ago – was set to 0 and seems to be fine. Matt
  7. Russell, Not quite the same application I know, but I've used a modern B & B clutch kit in my 2500 saloon over the past five years with no problems. Has stood up to all the abuse I can give it, too! All the best, Matt
  8. Hi Jon, You have a PM. Thanks, Matt
  9. Tim, Richard Dempster at TRGB set up my previous PI TR6 a number of years ago and was happy to go inside the MU and adjust things. Transformed how the car performed. Matt
  10. County pistons are absolutely fine, done 40,000 fast road miles in my 2500-engined saloon since rebuilding it in 2012 and had no issues. Stuck with the original rods. Hastings piston rings are well regarded… Jason at TRGB advised these when I was rebuilding the engine from my current project TR6. This time I had the original rods balanced and used them again. Matt
  11. Hi Ian/Oakwellian, You have PM Thanks, Matt
  12. Niall, Watling do list them, and at a significantly cheaper price than Rimmers do, but I was hoping to find a secondhand unit via forumite if at all possible Matt
  13. Thread resurrection… I'm looking for a towbar for my TR6 project. Plan is to use the car to tow a trailer tent eventually. Do any of the parties in this thread have any advice and/or parts available please? Many thanks, Matt
  14. Jason gets all the TRGB stuff done at Ivor Searle. I've been working with him on my TR's engine rebuild and learning plenty along the way
