I went to William Shaw of Corte Madera British & European
Motors in Greenbrea to rebuild my TR6's engine (and breaks, rear end and clutch system) and he did a fine job. Plus he's a nice guy - very British. You might want to talk with him. It won't be cheap but his approach and follow up are quite good.

Yes, all the numbers match.
I'm not thrilled with N Bay British, he balanced my Lotus Elite carbs,
and a $400 estimate became a $1400 invoice. I could have rebuilt them
I have a guy who works on my Lotus now as a side job to his regular
work, but I'd rather find someone who's rebuilt an MG motor before.
So I want a functional engine, but not the platinum cotter pins!
