    TR6 Re: measurements of a Snugtop hardtop for 250/6

    Hi Phil,
    I was just looking at Craigslist and came across a TR6 with a Snug Top. At least I believe it is a Snug Top. Take a look and maybe you can get the dimensions you need from the seller.

    Just want to reinforce Wayne's statement.

    The shaft he referred to is very small. It's been a long time since I removed a gear box but I remember finding a little metal cylinder on the shop...
