"What Is an OEM Clutch Kit?"
That is a good question!  TR250 and TR6 models were built originally with either
Borg & Beck clutches or Laycock clutches.  Laycock clutches were generally preferred
by enthusiasts, but Laycock was sold off to LUK, a major European clutch
manufacturer, a long time ago,  At that point, Borg & Beck clutches were the OEM
clutch of choice, as it was the only one left.  Borg & Beck clutches were manufactured
by Automotive Products which also manufactured Lockheed brakes.  This company was
sold to Delphi Diesel, and then it was sold again, I think.  That company is still
manufacturing clutches, but the Borg & Beck name was sold separately.  The new
owner of the name does not allow the products of the original manufacturer to be sold
as Borg & Beck anymore.  I am not sure what happens if an old stock clutch in a Borg
& Beck box is sold as Borg & Beck.  Who knows?
My recommendation to customers is to avoid this controversy altogether.  If you
purchase a TRF Magic Clutch listed in the previous section you will probably have a
better clutch than any originally fitted to a TR250 or TR6 sports car at the factory.
Nevertheless, I am going to include the clutches still manufactured on Tachbrook Road
in Leamington Spa where we always purchased Borg & Beck clutches in the past.  For
any customer crazy enough to purchase an original throw-out bearing, I am also listing
clutch kits with original RHP throw-out bearings in addition to the ones having our
own Koyo bearing.  If you could see an RHP bearing torn apart and displayed along
with a Koyo bearing, you would never buy the RHP.  The Koyo bearing will last and
last, and the RHP will not last.  I rest my case, but you can buy what you like.  In
case I wasn't clear enough above, I will say it again, buy a TRF Magic Clutch, and
you can forget about clutch problems for years to come.
