Parts Drawings

Although many parts are available as 'New Old Stock' (NOS), second-hand, or remanufactured for TCs and TDs, some parts are totally unavailable and will have to be made up either by yourself, of a fabricator.  To help eliminate some of the guess work involved in this process, we hope to bring you measured drawings and templates where previous restorers have had items made.

NB: When you open the thumbnail you may not be able to see ALL of the picture in one view and may have to scroll to see it all.

Roof Gutter Layout

If the rear drain tubes from the sun roof on the MG Y and YB become blocked, water will back up and rot out the rear cross member of the sun roof assembly.  Here is a dimensioned drawing by Roy Clapham of the roof gutter so that you can fabricate a new one.

Headlining cutting pattern

When Roy Clapham recently fitted a headlining to his car, the one he purchased from NTG, apart from the main roof piece, he had to cut the rest as per the drawinghe sent in.

Boot liners for the MG Y, YT and YB

The MG Y Series had millboard liners to line the inside walls of the trunk. These were made from Millboard. The fold line can be made by scoring a line about 1/3rd depth to the FRONT side of each piece. Another piece of Millboard was placed across the rear of the rear seat panel too: this piece was fitted to the saloons only and not to the YT, whereas the side panels were common across all models.

The MG Y Series also had a one-piece panel of black painted thin bituminous felt type material. The metal and wooden floor panels on all cars were covered by this. It was not stuck down, but could be removed.

Y and YT Rear axle half shafts and differential gaskets

When switching out the half shafts or removing the differential on an MG Y or YT, it is a good idea to make and fit some new gaskets. The differential gasket is the larger of the two. Click on thumbnail to open full sized picture to print from onto sheet of gasket paper.

MG Y Bulkhead reinforcing plate

This part was introduced by the MG Car Company as a modification to strengthen the bulkhead where the supports for the steering column are bolted through the firewall after about Y 5500 (exact point of introduction is uncertain). The bolts used to secure the steering column brackets will have to be lengthened accordingly to accomodate the additional thickness of the plate. Reproduced here by kind permission of Anton Piller.
