I have several questions:
I bought, years ago, a fiberglass gearbox cover from I dunno who...
probably Moss. I still have it on the car, although I've always had
trouble with the way it fits (or doesn't, as the case may be). I wonder if
the "space age plastic" gearbox cover sold by TRF is really as good as Mr.
Runyan boasts. (oops... dancing on the edge of more Runyan-bashing there!
Secondly, after changing my clutch several years ago I ordered from TRF all
of the hardware for installing the cover, as well as the rubber seals.
Pictured in the TR6 catalog were what appeared to be MOLDED strips of
rubber that were shaped to fit the curves and straights that the seal would
have to follow. Naturally, this is what I expected to receive, but what
TRF sent me was some cheap, perfectly STRAIGHT stips of rubber that didn't
even have any holes in them for the bolts. (This has always stuck in my
craw!) Well, my question really is, has anyone managed to make their own
seals for this that are cut to shape? What materials would be convenient,
inexpensive, easy to work with and effective all at the same time?
Any tricks out there?
1973 TR6 with TWO blower speeds!! (and new tires as of today! Yeah!)
