Very much under construction, but will continue until every part you can think of has a comment - however long it takes.....!
At last here is the page you need to find those hard to get parts for your TVR M Series/Taimar. Parts are grouped into a logical order, and suppliers are listed where parts are stocked (this will be updated as and when parts availability is known so may be incomplete for a while). Please help me update this list with your parts knowledge...and list is printable for your use.

Pressure Warning Differential Valve Aston Martin? - Aston made a batch of these in 2005 - probably no longer available but worth an email to them just in case.  
Front Calipers Triumph TR6 2 types may have been used
Front Discs Triumph TR6  
Rear Brake Cylinders Triumph TR6

Not only are there two types of disc caliper fitted to an 'M' but the rear brake cylinders also vary. It appears that the latter 'PB' caliper with metric fittings, is matched to a 0.75 inch cylinder while the earlier version has a 0.7 inch. These are 'american' spec apparently. I have been informed that the units are interchangeable however.

Many thanks to Alan Nicholls for this information.

Paint Codes Ault & Wiborg paint manufacturer colours were the ones used to cross reference to get the correct code, the company since being sold off to Spies Heckler.

You will need to go to a paint manufacturer or specialist bodyshop to get a match for old TVR colours. In the mid 1990's I was at a bodyshop in Brackley (Colin McCrae's car was in for a respray at the time, and they had just sprayed the Golden B&H Jordan F1 cars if you remember those). They used a special paint analyser tool which used some form of radiation (possibly laser) to measure the make-up of any colour so it could be matched. You could try them as they still exist, but I know they normally worked only with business customers, & this was a long time ago.

Paintbox Developments Ltd.
Top Station Road

Update Jan 2012: Now most insurance approved bodyshops have one of these devices to accurately match paint colours, give your local bodyshop a call.

Motor Factors

Halfords/Motor Factors - This is the large original size filter

Halfords/Motor Factors - This is the "less well known" smaller diameter filter (and shorter) which although is a compromise on filtering surface area, allows fitment where the engine mount or nut for the engine mount makes contact with the filter. I have seen a major oil leak caused by a larger filter being fitted to a 3000S, where the engine mount needed a half-nut rather than full height one on the engine mount stud. This smaller filter would have been a simpler option. For even more reference material so you can source your own, the filter is listed for:

Ford KA (RB) 1.3 (1299cc) Petrol JJB 50hp from month/year 09/1996 to 10/2002
