Decent source for TR-6 brake calipers?
Posted by: Sidecardoug

Hi- does anyone know of a decent source for TR-6 brake calipers ? After about 5 months of being stationary,
I went to pull my TR-6 / Ford out of the garage and the pedal went almost to the floor. I noticed some liquid
on the backside of the caliper, so at his point it's just a strong hunch on my part.... hope to get the car up in the air soon so I can take a better look.
Thanks, for any help
Doug

P.S I'm in Northern Nevada

Moss have pretty much everything for the TR6.
[www.mossmotors.com]

I parked my TR6 outside for 5 years. When I revived it last month the brakes needed nothing. Why? Because before I parked it I always changed the Dot 4 fluid every year. Fresh fluid = no water = no corrosion = no leaks.
Otoh I hadn't changed the clutch fluid for about 3 years - the master was weeping and the slave was positively dripping watery rusty fluid.

Just a thought.

Thanks, Ivor !

I had tried my usual sources, everything was " not available." I will definitely keep Moss Motors
on my list of resources !

Moss Motors had the parts- Very reasonably priced, amazingly quick delivery. Turned out that there was a
seepage from left caliper, and the master cylinder was bypassing as well. ( Moss had that too- calipers, master cylinder, hoses, pads and install kit all brand new, not refurb.) Moss gets my 5 star award !
