British sports car center, Gormley Ot, from the web. I don't know how they are.
Don't seem to be a lot of shops in the area.

Trevor White owns the British Sportscar Centre. He is a good mechanic but be prepared to leave your car for a very long time...

You could try these....

Dougs Auto Clinic, Milton
R&B Automotive, Oakville
J D Auto Service, Etobicoke

The guys above exhausted my local knowledge. My uncle worked on TRs in the 60s/70s and said Redshaw Auto was top notch - problem being they're in Ottawa, but might be worth a drive/tow.

The TR 6 cyl is a relatively simple engine, unless you are looking at high performance, any good mechanic should be able to rebuild it for you. I would suggest having the internals, flywheel and clutch balanced.

I guess another possible action might be to pull the engine yourself and ship it to someone in the states.
Macy's garage comes to mind.
