MG TD TF 1500 - Polyurethane Spring Seating Pads

Hi to everyone,
I am the owner of a 53 MG TD and am looking for the spring seating pads Moss P/N 281-488. Only I want the pads that are made of POLYURETHANE they are a orange color. I hpoe someone knows where I can get a set.

Hi Ed,

Ed; I was told that the spring pads for late midget could be fitted to TDs and TFs. Both have 1.5" wide springs and similar mounting plates. Cannot confirm or deny this statement-never tried it. Perhaps someone else can shed some light on the interchangability of these parts-poly pads are definately available for the Midgets. Dan Craig

Thank You Chris & Dan,

Yes Dan Midget spring pads work. I just installed a set of Prothane poly spring pads from Moss, 280-904.
Clutch operation seems to be better, old pads were ok but slightly worn, U bolts were tight.
Oh I also installed 1" lowering blocks to go with the HP RB MGB front springs, that lowered the front.
