Hello Everyone.

I was referred to TMF through a recent customer who said great things. We are just in the process of setting up our TMF discounts which will be available on machine shop services and complete builds.

 

I am helping a local company called MCCS Engineering Ltd, Up until the pandemic MCCS had worked supplying trade and retail outlets with machining services, short engines and complete engine units. Not exclusively A or B Series engines but everything right through to modern performance and turbo engines. The guys here have been machining and training their newer staff from the 1970's and have always had a passion for the A Series. Since the start of 2020 when things started to slow down with many regular trade clients closing their doors and some not planning to re-open, MCCS asked if I could help them get online and offer their favourite and most popular engine packages for private customers to purchase. So that is what I did. Their website has been up for several months and already there has been great feedback, a fantastic response. The guys really appreciate it with their order book for A and B engines taking great shape.

 

MCCS have their own machine shop facilities and offer a wide range of services from the basics;

Surface Grinding / Refacing / Boring, Honing, Line Boring

 

through to balancing & full cylinder head works, offering high quality staged performance options.

 

On top of this we have our very own build shop and clean room. We are currently split between two premises but over the coming months will be moving our machine shop over to our rural premises.

Hey, I suspect I was that customer! Great to see you’re on here. I can vouch for your superb work. I haven’t quite got as far with my project as I’d have liked, but I will update when time allows...

Ah yes there you are!

Thank you for the recommendation, fantastic forum, very friendly :)

Looking forward to seeing how your project unfolds. I have a very interesting project in at the moment which I will post up when complete :)

I am also on the Mk1 forum, not sure why but the comments seem a bit abrasive and not so helpful! I can see what you were asking!

I can’t really help with suppliers, but what I would suggest is to buy one of the standard Austin or Morris plates from Minispares so you can get a feel for the dimensions and hole locations. I am sure there are plenty of places that can print a logo or etch something, it would look good having it black with the company name cut out so showing silver

Thank you for that. I like the idea of having it black with silver showing through. I think I have a couple of old metal ones from engines they have stripped but I have just looked on minispares and see there are a few designs so will take a look :-)
Thanks for the reply :-)

Merely an observation, but why do you put the core plugs in backwards?

Are you sure you’re not looking at a small bore block? The core plugs on those are domed and then dimpled when installed.

Hi Steve,
Graham more of leas answered that one for me :-)
Most of the range our in website currently is 998 Pre A+ and 1098 based. There are currently a couple of 1275 and A+ 998 going through so expect a few updates to the range on the website. With the site being set up during lock down at short notice I have been updating the image as they build more :-)

Thanks for looking though much appreciated
