    Brakes discs

    Hello, I have Brembo rotors,no backing plates and Project mu club racer pads on my TR6 but havn't used them in anger yet. Most of my bikes have cross drilled rotors,e.g. 1984 Laverda Jota with well over 115,000 km.(mostly Hard inc.track) and no sign of any cracks,but I suppose they are not hiding behind wheels and backing plates.Regards,Michael. PS cross drilled = less un-sprung weight?

    Hello Andy, In Australia there is a rolling 30 year age limit for "classic"vehicles one can get (if a member of an approved club) concessional registration with a 60 day fill in your log book go anywhere registration AND this is separate from any designated club outings! At about $60 a year (which includes third party personnel insurance) + a one off cost of number plates .Approx.$35. Regards,Michael. Mine was built on 25 October 1968 and shipped from Glasgow to Los Angles on the 'Moerdyke'.

    Hello,So according to the written word my motor is out of the 500th TR6 carby. The trim color is different too. I will see what they say about my wife's TR3 (we already have a Standard Register certificate for it,which is a bit ordinary looking.She has owned the car since 1971.) Regards,Michael.

    Hello,I received the certificate for the TR6 and everything matches except the engine no.! (the one in the car is a lower no. than the certificate ).There is quite a bit of interesting information on the certificate compared to my wife's certificate for her TR3A.Michael.

    U.S. market TR6 origens?

    Hello,where would I go to find out when my U.S. market TR6 was made and if it had any options fitted? Regards,Michael.
  10. Hello i'm not sure if this where to do this but....I recently read an article in an old copy of Triumph World called High- Speed Files about a TR6 and in particular the "crank damper".I am interested in contacting him regarding his dampers.Regards,Michael.

    Hello,Do you have Maxxis over there. My wife has a set on her 3A and I have a set on my tr6 and they did a G.E.A.R.(Golden Era Auto Racing) day on the 6 (Regularity) and they work well for both of us. Ordinary looking tread and VERY ordinary looking sidewalls but otherwise very good.Regards,Michael.

    Hello all,Thank you for the replies.There is no recess in top of block.(all I got,with some BAD information is the block,set of 77.4mm pistons,rods , big end caps and a sad unrelated?looking crank.) I was told the block came out of a '69 Tr6 ! I read in the Rimmer vehicle I.D. section that there was a gap from CR2911 to CR5049 ???? The motor that I currently have fitted is MG2412HEBW.I plan to rebuild the original motor,CC25539HE and refit it.(I was thinking of using some of the parts from the CR block but I don't think so now) Regards,Michael.

    Hello,Can anyone tell me what this block belongs to? CR4806HE. Regards,Michael.
