Just to update everyone. Victoria British called me back tonight and said
all their clutch slave cylinders are the same which is what some of you have
mentioned. I took some of your advice and used my dremel tool to grind a
little off the mount. it didn't take much. So now my clutch is working
Thanks again everyone for your help and advice!

Subject: Victoria British Clutch rebuild kit
I ordered the Victoria British Clutch rebuild kit for my 73 TR6. When I
opened the package, everything looked great. Brand new master cylinder,
slave, and tubing between the two. I flushed emptied my old unit, removed
it and proceeded to install the new kit. I started with the master
cylinder; it went it perfectly, as did the hose. Excited at the fact that I
will be very close to driving my car after two parts come tomorrow, I
dropped down and slid under my car only to find out.. THE DARN THING DOESN'T
FIT!!!! Apparently the end is now oval and not round, making it just a
little to wide to slide into the mount. Frustrated I called VB, wait on
hold for 30 minutes only to be told the best they can do is to open a ticket
to do some research. Not only did they want to charge me a wad to have a
repair kit sent express, they won't take partial returns on kits! So
basically the moral of the story is.
And to top it off, I can't get my darn oil drain plug off! (Any ideas???)
