  1. Hi Roger Thanks for the reply , I assume that's the correct length then Steve
  2. Hi All Tried a search on this but after 14 pages gave up. I have a RHD CP 6 and I need to replace the Tacho cable but there are a number of sizes I see. My inner cable length is roughly 42 inches (old school) and the are cables availanle are from 39 to 48 inches. Can anyone tell me the correct length for my TR6, do I have the wrong one in the first place ? Thanks to all who reply
  3. Ok thank you Michael I will give them a call Steve
  4. Hi Y'all Hope you are fine and dandy. Does anyone know if there is an engineering specification for the 6's hardtop front and rear fixings. I have been lucky enough to get hold of a solid original hardtop (which im in the process of getting sprayed) and whilst I do have the side fixings I'm missing the front and rear plus the rubber corner feet ( for want of a better word) I wouldn't mind having a go at manufacturing them myself but can't find a specification. I could buy them but have you seen the price !!! For a couple of bolts and spacers etc geezzzzzeeeee Any help
  5. Hi Pete This is cured if you use a LED relay as directed above and then link the p connection of the relay to the dash indicator lamp(LED). I used the one that Bob gave me the link to. Mine work just fine with no dimming etc https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/collections/indicator-relays-electronic/products/12v-electronic-indicator-flasher-relay-classic-car-with-oe-click-x-l-p-2-3-pin Hope this helps and I suspect will be much easier than trying to put diodes across the switch etc. Steve
  6. Hi Harvey Long shot but are you sure that the ignition switch is located in the key switch correctly, Mine occasionally comes out and I have to pop it back in Steve
  7. Hi Aarhus This looks exactly the same as the units I have on my 72 TR6 but the link on shows one view Happy hunting Steve
  8. Thanks for all the replies chaps I will take a closer look at the spindles and if they look suspect I may change. I will see what the balance is like at 1500 John, may point me in the right direction. I will also start with a fag paper gap and start from scratch just in case as I've also noticed that the bleed valve is only just cracked open for 900 rpm which makes me think the butterflies are adjusted too far open. Steve
  9. Hi Stuart Possibly, but over all three sets ? I'm wondering if this is just the norm ? Steve
  10. Hi All Managed to change the coolant and antifreeze today so another job completed. Whilst I was there I decided to check points timing and throttle balance primarily because I recently purchased a balancing gauge. All seemed to be good but I've noticed that cylinder 1,3,5 where all reading 2.4 on the gauge and cylinders 2,4,6 reading ~2.0 This didn't make sense to me as I would expect each pair to be the same therefore allowing me to get all throttles the same. Dispite fiddling for some time I cant get them all exactly the same and the throttles can only be adjusted as a
  11. Hi Peter Front door painted and did the front of the whole house at the same time, only the lintels to do today. Totally in wifeys good books. Only joking about the 6 months The reference I made was really to the fact that as soon as I do one job on the house there always seems to be another she's held back that needs doing, still we've been married 33 years and together 38 so must be keeping to good lady reasonably happy. She a wonderful lady Btw Triumph red for the front door my be a bit too far Back to the garage Steve
  12. Hi Cas Just a thought, would it be worth taking a spar spark plug with you so that next time it happens you can remove the HT lead from cylinder no1 and turn the engine over to see you still have a spark, (insulated grips to hold the plug on the engine otherwise you may get a but of a shock ) that won't necessarily rule out the ignition as the spark when running in the cylinder could be performing differently, but it may help (I understand it's intermittent) Also with Marco's explanation I fear he may not have pointed out his drawing/picture is for a four cylinder and not a 6 cyLind
  13. Padi These are the three posts worth reading all of these make a good read Happy easter
  14. Hi All As a side note and being a bank holiday weekend (like we need more time off !) I have been on the forum more times than not lately and have been able to fix a number of issues I've not had time to deal with until recently. So here's my point, am I the only one here that the more threads I read the more I find I want to do to the 6, despite owning her for 24 ish years. I must admit that I'm an engineer through and through so tinkering / improving (possibly) I enjoy just as much as cleaning and driving the 6 but the more I read the more I find I want to do! I've just read a
  15. Hi Phil There are two of these currently on flea-bay. TRIUMPH TR6 HARDTOP CHROME R/H FINISHER REAR CORNER PART NO 716608 This is how it's listed Hope that helps Steve
