sounds about right...these could be for another FOT member.

Want to research this so he gets the best deal and combination.

Note: some of the TR3A used a big ugly caliper that was different, but
mounted the same.

TR3 - Early TR6, around CC30000 use the same Girling 16 caliper. After
that, the TR6 has the 16P and very late TR6's have the 16PB. The pistons
on the 16 have a thin lip for the weather seal, and are not interchangable
with the later type. The designation MP has metric threads for the brake

Chuck R. asks $45 for the core on these puppies. Figure half that from

100 bucks from TRF, I think apple gets $45 plus the cost of the new 
pistons, so it comes out to around $100 per caliper.
