  1. I did operate contact breaker points for many years (on a TR6), and with a decent/unworn distributor, and good quality points, they are no hassle at all. I have driven my cars thousands of miles around the UK, abroad, track days and sprints. I then changed to a 123 tune, and that was a great piece of kit. Fine tuned with a lap top on the RR. I never carried the original dizzy, just had the 123 tune installed, and ran like this for thousands of miles, without a single issue. I am now distributorless. but that is another story, and have a coil pack installed. Horses for courses, etc. Cheers.
  2. Hi Ian, I am after a set from 1989 of TR Actions. Any ideas where I could obtain a set from ? I often look on eBay, but 1989 appears not to be a good year ! Many thanks in advance.
  3. A Type for me, too. Oh, an competition spec !
  4. You need a decent exhaust manifold gasket, as a lot on the market, certainly for the TR5/6, are not great quality at all. If you get one not to 'blow', it is a matter of time before they start to break down on the mating surfaces. Bastuck in Germany will sell you a high quality steel gasket, which are very robust. Part number MD9TR6. Cheers.
  5. Hi Stan, Do you know which Ford hubs are used ? I have this kit on my 6. Cheers.
  6. I agree with Marko, the Red 5 was much better value than that Blue 5. The Blue 5 needed a complete rebuild, and made good money at circa £26K + fees in my option. The Yellow low mileage 6 was not that nice at all either. Over-spray on several components, plus several other defects. Cheers.
  7. Hi Harry, It was a shame that White 6 with EFI did not make the concourse arena at the weekend. I was looking forward to hearing what mods the engine had received. Cheers.
  8. Hi Ian. I have Jenveys and Emerald Management (K6 ECU) in my TR6, on a +0.40 bore, PB head, 10:1 CR, plus many other mods. I run a Newman cam, which is not listed on their web site. You could get away with a different cam with that management system, and a cam that offers more valve lift, providing you have a good exhaust system including manifold, you should find the results quite entertaining. It should also be totally tractable. Cheers.
  9. I agree with Bruce above, this most definitely sounds like what is known as a ratchet clutch. You will find it is worse when warm as everything expands. The nose piece that the release bearings slides up and down will be slightly out of shape, hence when you release the clutch pedal it does not release smoothly. Been here before. Good luck.
  10. Hi Neil, Many thanks for the update. Cheers.
  11. I understand Malcom has now retired, I believe ?
  12. Triumph TR5/6 Racetorations alloy front hubs with good quality wheel bearings only a few years old and Revington TR hub spacer kit (RTR3463K) for sale. I have just acquired a set of uprated front hubs with larger stub axles, and larger, modern Timken wheel bearings, so this kit is now surplus to requirements and absolutely serviceable. £150 + postage

  14. Hi Andy, Despite the actual small difference in actual BHP between the two, the CP early cars do feel quite a bit different on the road with regards to power and torque. I have owned both a standard CR & CP models, both set-up properly. If you're involved in an engine build anyway, it is an ideal time to upgrade, and not much additional cost in the grand scheme of things to make these changes at this time. However, when you start tuning/improving, it can be difficult to know where to stop !
