I had a new internal hard drive put in and am rebuilding the drive piece by piece. I had the old drive backed up on time machine and have that intact.

There are some files that I didn't pull off the old hard drive that I'd like to get off of Time Machine (iTunes library file, etc). Is it possible to get those files off the Time Machine disk, without starting time machine backing up this new internal yet?

Click on TM preferences, then select "OFF", this will prevent TM from starting a backup.
You still enter TM and select whatever files you want to restore.
At least I can do this, as usual I tried now just before posting this reply.
