    I doubt that you could find an 'O'ring with the desired configuration. It's a flat, soft gasket, seldom found in place. Think I'd make my own before going to a circular cross-section ring. Bud

    Ask for a nitril 'O' ring of the proper size. Cheers - Dave

    My 10.5 wide feet are a challenge. I found a pair of lightweight Under Armor running shoes with very narrow soles that are the only shoes I can drive the TF in safely.

    My brew is plain water, a bit of anti-freeze as a lubricant and anti-rust agent, and some Water Wetter. The car runs cooler than I do.

    I've run tubes in my 60-profile tires on my daily driver MGB for the past ten years. No problem.

    Has anyone substituted an o ring for the leather gasket on the oil pipe to oil pressure gauge. If so, any special o ring or other substitute?

    Thanks

    I talked with the tire people at Beaulieu and as Paul suggests they said not to use tubes on tire profiles of 65 or less but they would not have any concerns when using a profile of 80. I think Graeme's point of using good quality tubes is sensible and I've emailed Hankook direct and put the question to them.

    Bob,

    I am attaching two pics of how they are used on my car. I have every reason to believe these are original.

  • MG TF CONVERTIBLE - ONE OF THE LAST BRITISH EDITIONS

    “Here i am parting with my MG TF, this car is a true collectible being one of the last British Made editions.

    The car starts but does not drive, this is due to the hydraulics in the clutch, it could be something as silly...
