MG TD TF 1500 - TF Firewall
|Does any one know if the firewall of the TF and TD are interchangeable?|
|I do not think they can be the samesin the TF is 2 inches lower at the front of the cowl,|
I believe the TF battery and tool boxes are different as well. Aside from being lower isn't the TF a bit wider also?
If you need it I can take a picture of the TF with tape measure in the shot..if that would help, let me know.

|I believe they are the same. I can measure the two at home. Might be a bit though. Going through funeral arangements and the stuff that surounds them.|
|I believe that the Firewalls are differnet with the footplate bulkheads being identical. I know this because i'm pulling a "B" series engine with MGA gearbox out of my TF that a PO had put in and I had to find another bulkhead to replace my old one that is cut up.|

|I don't think they are the same - the body line at the rear of the bonnet (and front of the cowl) is slanted more on the TF. This would mean the back of the firewall has a rake that is "leaned back" more - as is the windshield.|
I hope that makes some sense - long week and I am at a loss for proper terms.

|Other differences would be the placement of the wiper motor on the TF firewall and the relocation of the two horns - from the firewall to the front chassis on a TF. The later TFs also have the fuel pump mounted in a different location - moved from right side of the tool box to the right rear chassis.|
I am sure you can find a TD firewall out there

I'll snap a few pics for you today!

Passanger side. That is a standard 3' yard stick in photo if that helps.

|Thanks for all your help; I was wondering if a TD one would work but I have located a TF firewall. Thanks again.|
