MG TD TF 1500 - FromTheFrameUp Rotors
|I bought a couple of rotors from the new source that I learned about, FromTheFrameUp. Images are attached. They seem well made. The letters 'AD' are molded in at the lower side of the 'spout'. I'll try one out as soon as I can get the snow cleared away from the garage and the temperature gets up to 40F with sunshine and dry roads. (Well, I can dream. Can't I?) I paid $17.50 for 2 of them with shipping (USPS).
|I think these are the same pieces that LBC is advertising, again, you have to buy two.|
|Buying two was my choice. I could have bought just one.|
|Jeff Schlemmer has for sale, they look very much alike.|
Cheers - Dave
|Thanks for the pictures Bud.|
Did you by chance order a cap? I have been planning to order both a cap and rotor from FromTheFrameUp. Any chance you can measure the rotor height? I'm wondering if it will need to be ground down to allow use with the pertronix collar.
|Hi Evan. I haven't ordered a cap, but I may. I plant to do the measurements shortly to see how they comply with the Pertronix sleeve requirements. May have them later today.|
|Measured a FromTheFrameUp rotor. Should be no problem with the Pertronix sleeve. The dimensions are very close to those of an original Lucas rotor.|
Find the thread 'Pertronix Problem' for more details on this issue. Below is an image of the rotor with the dimensions, viz., .382 in. inside and .660 in, overall.
|Dave is correct, these are the rotors supplied by Advanced Distributor. From the frame up, among others, is a reseller for them.|
Can you measure the height of the rotor? Top to bottom?
|Evan,that's the .660 in. overall measurement. OEM Lucas was .669 in.|
|Thanks Bud! Sorry I misunderstood the measurement. I couldn't respond earlier due to my ID getting compromised. I'm back now, in MG witness protection!|
