MG TD TF 1500 - 7 1/4' Bell Housing Part Number
|After years of clutch problems I have decided I am going to pull the gearbox and bell housing in the spring. I am convinced that I am running a 7 1/4" clutch with a later 8" bell housing (it has the 3/4" shaft)and this is playing a role in my problems.|
I want to replace the bell housing, and I happen to have a spare one in a box that has the earlier 5/8" shaft. The problem is that the spare bell housing has a part number that does not match the ones listed in an archived post:
TC - SA2414
TD 7¼" - SA2239/3
late TD/TF 8" - SA2239/4 casting nbr 168022
My bell housing has the following stamped on it: PBM (within a hexagon) and 22826 under that.
Does anyone have an early bell housing out where they can search for these numbers for me? If not from a TD what is it from? Will it fit?
Thanks a bunch. Tim 53TD...with earlier engine.
|Hello again. I just looked in my workshop manual and it says the older (7 1/4") housing number is MG.900/14, and newer (8") is SA.2239/4. So now I have at least two different numbers for the 7 1/4". Maybe the one on my housing is a casting number? Could they have used several different housings on early TD's? The mystery continues. Tim|
I just went into my shed to look at my spare 8" clutch housing, and it bears a casting nbr.
168022 if that's of any help.
According to my (original) MG midget (Series TF) Service Parts List, the OEM part nbr. is SA2239/4 for the 8" clutch housing.
Sorry I can't help you with other parts numbers. Sold my old 7" stuff years ago.

|The search is over!|
Many thanks to Mark in Ottawa who confirmed that his early TD bell housing has the number 22826 on it. Tim
