    TR2/3/3A Re: back seat bracket

    OK - I see what you are talking about with the recess and small hole. I think my back panel does have a center hole but will confirm tomorrow.

    That's where the hardtop brackets go (aka "Bridge Piece"). Here is a page from the workshop manual showing how to fit the hardtop. Apparently after TS6824 the body was stamped for the...

    TR2/3/3A Re: 59 TR3A Clutch Master Cylinder Failure

    Wow - that's an interesting failure. I wonder if the retainer cup was made from metal that was too 'soft'. 'Back in the day' OEM material and tolerance (Girling, Lucas, etc) was really good. ...
