Sorry, can’t help you out but I love TRs. Had a TR6 until first child was born. Was lucky enough to find a mechanic who learned his craft growing up in his dad’s TR dealership in Canada. He was a wiz at syncing the carbs. I used to drop it off to him and he’d ask what I needed done. My response was “whatever you think it needs.” He led the brakes one time and forgot to tell me to pump the peddle a couple of times before I backed out of his bay. I almost T-boned a truck in the parking lot.

I wish you luck in your search. Are you driving it from Cali?

Nope...Haven't acquired one yet. Seriously thinking of it and I have been searching for quite some time... Would I drive it from CA if I found one there? Probably not. It's a long drive, even with a V8 and A/C.

In college, I had a roommate who had one. He was a typical student with no money so he maintained the car (or didn't) himself. One night he let me borrow it for a date I had. We took an exit off Storrow Drive and my date and I watched as a tire went flying by the passenger's side, hit the sidewalk and flew about 20' into the air.

As I was beginning to say "Wow! Someone lost a wheel". The car slammed to the pavement while dragging it's tireless right-rear axle.

Nearby, right there on a sidewalk, I found a glass, vertical enclosure that had a phone in it you could make a phone call by depositing a few coins. I called my roommate and told him where he could find his car.

Thanks all...
