TR4/4A Moss rear spring distance piece 674-560

Fitting new lever shocks on my live axle TR4A I find the shock link dangling from the lever arm, and the distance piece broken at the link mounting hole. Looking at the Moss catalog I see that the distance piece (P/N 674-560) is not available.

Here is the relevant Moss section: https://mossmotors.com/rear-suspension-solid-axle-tr4a


Anyone knows of an available source for this part?

Try contacting forum member Marvin Gruber, he has a lot of TR parts, If no luck try posting in the Buy/Sell forum or try eBay

He's not looking for the link, he needs the aluminum distance piece between the spring and the axle. Mounting location broke.

Thanks for your suggestions everyone. I'll reach out to Marvin Gruber as suggested. Ebay is negative for now.

Is this it? I have had this with parts I got with my TR4A in 1985

It looks similar but not the same as catalog pic

Nope, those distance pieces are for a TR4, the "ear" on the TR4A distance piece is centered.

Somebody else can correct me ---but the TR4 does not use that kind of a distance piece. Only the TR4A with the solid axle had those.

TR4s, from CT23383 on, have the distance piece pictured in post #12, there's a LH and a RH.
My '63 TR4 CT246XXLO has them.

All TR4As with a solid rear axle use the distance piece I pictured in post#13, RH/LH are the same.
