This is a mod that is offered by British Frame & Engine. I don't
know if they will fit a TR6 motor. The GT40 tappets are smaller in
diameter than the holes in the TR2-4 block so steel sleeves were
designed to be slipped into the bores... The recommendation was that
the sleeves be chilled in the freezer for a couple of hours and lock-
tited or epoxied into the lifter bores. The advantages are the Ford
lifters are harder/lighter than the stock units. They also have a
hole drilled into the side of the lifter to allow oil to drain out.
`Works like a charm.
