    My 60 spokes are second hand from an Austin Healey owner who went to chrome. At 4 1/2 I believe they are the widest that will fit a TF but they do allow for a bigger variety of tyres.

    JK,
    have you done a blowby check on all cylinders?
    Also check that the tappet cover plate gasket has the holes to let pressure vent out.
    I have changed pistons from below, it is a bit fiddley but do able.

    Silicon grease is fine. It's just that Vaseline was my first thought.

    Oh, and be very careful with the spring metal contacts. They are easily broken.

    The problem is that very few MG T`s were sold in the UK that they are rare. The taxes here made them very expensive, the Government needed cash coming in and cars did it. The bulk of post war MG`s went to the USA, Australia and NZ
    The rarity has put up the prices, TF`s go for 25000/3500 and even higher.
    The Octagon club has a dismantled TF advertised at 13500.

    Its, probably a moot point but I would go with the silicone grease, which is very slick and may help keep the leather soft with time.

    It's all been done before and I trust their judgment.

    They won't warp the the 3-inch wood rails, but they will pivot at the joints, unless you over fixed it. :-)

    There are plenty of cars (actually most) that fit your description for sale out there. But unfortunately most of the sellers think they are show worthy and price accordingly.

    IMHO a lot of scrappy MGTD's should go for about $4-6k US and hopefully that would put them on your list but the sellers think they should get $12-18k for them.

    I guess the best advice would be to identify s...
