Has anyone got these? No Moss or TRF number.

It's kind of below the T-stat...It's on one of the bolts for the water pump housing.
You can see the head of that bolt and some of the clamp in this picture.
Looks like it would be easy make.

Steve, I ended up with several; usable but with surface rust. Lately I've been refurbishing 6RA relays; soaking the cases in 6% vinegar for 24 hrs gets rid of most of the rust (but not the patina). I can round them up to see if they're better than what you have. Jeff

You might take a look at McMaster-Carr, search under "p-clamp" or if you want something that provides better vibration damping under "adel clamps." Aircraft Spruce is another good source for stuff like this.

Thanks - checked out McMaster-Carr. This clamp looks like a one-off. Maybe that's why the usual suspects don't stock it.

Going back to my crusty old parts catalogs, the Triumph part number for the clip is 138516 and the sleeve that fits in the clamp and cushions the fuel pipe is 114178. As near as I can tell the 138516 clip is NLS (no longer supplied/serviced) but the 114178 sleeve is still available.

IIRC, that fuel line is a -5 (5/16" OD) and it looks like the ID for the cushioned clamps from McMaster are all for -6 tubing (6/16" OD). They do have an uncushioned one that is 3/8" ID so some thin rubber sheet (1/32" or so) material could be cut as a cushion sleeve. If you scroll down past the illustrations, the Aircraft Spruce catalog has a link to a copy of MS21919 that you look over for all of the material codes covering the clamps and cushions, dimensional information and wedge vs nonwedge clamping types under Documents, Tech Data Sheet:

I found these in my spare stuff box. Not sure if they're better that what you have; should clean up OK. Just the shipping if you want one.

5/16" from the fuel tank to the pump, but 1/4" from the pump to the TR6's carbs

Went back and did a little digging and sure enough the hard lines from the pump as well as the hoses should be -4. Having said that, it looks like at some point early in my TR6s history, the hard line from the pump up and around the front of the engine was replaced with -5 tubing with the last bit of hard lines and the tee fitting that splits things off for each carb being -4. I guess I never gave that -5 tubing a second thought since it was so well done that it looked like it had always belonged there. This was on the engine that was in the car when I purchased it. That engine was removed from the car and is just sitting around in storage.

The car now has an electric pump with fuel pressure regulator and a combination of -6 hard lines and braided flex lines feeding the carbs and a different TR6 engine that has been modified a bit.

I just made a new one from some sheet metal, and I’m no fabricator, so it’s pretty easy. After fabrication, I zinc plated it. Looks pretty good. I’ll try to post a picture when I get home. Ordered the rubber piece from TRF, but it’s just a piece of rubber hose you could get at the auto parts store.
