MG TD TF 1500 - Accelerator pedal and shaft
|1954 mgtf Left hand drive|
I broke one of the brackets that holds the accelerator shaft to the firewall. Is there a source for obtaining a new one? I can't seem to find the part (or the pedal and shaft for that matter) in the Moss catalog.
|Hi Ed, I have a TD and can only imagine that your broken part is the same as mine. I made one up by bending a piece of heavy strapping around the shaft in a "d" shape and bolting it to the fire wall in the same hole as the broken part. I searched for an original replacement but had no luck. I've had it in the car for about 3 years now and it works fine. I hope you can understand my solution.|

|Somewhere in the archives several fixes have been discussed. The above fix is simple and works well. I personally can never seem to find things in the archives, but give it a shot. George|
|Ed, I have a pedal out of a 62 Sprite that I believe has the same bracket. I'll have a look tommorow. If it is the same I can cut the shaft and send you one. I think you are going to have to figure out a way to bend your shaft straight or cut it in two to get it in place. I'll try and let you know tommorow if they are in fact the same. |
|Ed, I had a look and the brackets appear to be the same including the locating pins. I'll cut the shaft and send you one if you figured out a way to get it on your shaft. The Sprite and TD/TF shafts are not the same in case you were thinking that direction.|
