Post Breaking a MG TF
I may have said this before - I'm breaking a TF 160. I bought it mainly for the engine but I'll also keep the gearbox, driveshafts, ecu, loom, AP 4 pots and discs, rear calipers and alloys. I've already sold the seats, hood and various other bits and pieces and have recovered most of what I paid for it so the bits I'm keeping won't have cost me a penny! If anyone needs anything that I might still have let me know before it goes on ebay...

Hi. I would be interested in the front upper suspension arms if they are still available. Happy to pay the going rate and postage.

Hi Mike, yes still got them. Not sure what condition they are in. I'll take them off next time I get a chance, clean them up a bit and check them over and come back to you if that's okay. I was wondering if the suspension components would be of use to any K3 owners with hydrogas spheres as the TF comes with traditional springs/dampers but I'm not sure if the components are interchangeable.

Look forward to hearing from you. Pity you are not a bit closer and I could have collected them but Bristol is maybe just a bit far from the Scottish Borders. If they are at all reasonable I am interested because they are for a Coupe project which, if I am honest, may never see the road. It has hydragas arms at present but I really intended it to have a proper coilover arrangement and so it has no gas spheres​. The TF arms are just what I am looking for but are not the same as those on Metros and MGFs and would not be a straight swap for a K3 owner.

Is the gearshift/cables going begging Dave?

Not sure yet. I changed mine to MGF cable change just over a year ago so technically I don't need them but the change feels much tighter/more precise on the TF so its got me thinking the one I fitted might be worn. I think the short cable from a TF is too short as well. I used the MGF cable with a TF bell crank. The TF bell crank points forwards whereas the MGF one point back and there isn't much slack on mine so I think the shorter TF cable won't reach. I'll check when I remove it. I'm currently thinking I'll keep the change mech and cables as spares but I'll let you know. I should end up with a spare TF bell crank though.
