    TR6 Radio

    If you can get a period stereo then adding an aux input can be as easy as soldering a jack to the volume potentiometer. Tim

    TR6 Radio

    Also did this.. picked a digital radio with blue tooth and then wired a woofer on the back shelf and 2 tweeters on the kidney pads Tim
  3. Quick question. Who owned the supercharged TR6 on the TR register stand? I had my supercharged TR6 on the club triumph stand. Popped over a few times to chat to the owner but couldn't see him. Tim

    Car cover

    Had this on my first classic, a spitfire. Paid to get it resprayed, but the garage I was having built was no ready in time. Left the car with a cover on for a couple of weeks. And when I took it off, microblistering. Grrrr! Cheers Tim
  5. Already been. Cheating.. . Was delivering my car to another stand. Cheers Tim

    Car cover

    Stuart, Does this include the breathable (non-waterproof) dust covers that one might use when the car is in a garage? Put on a dry car of course Tim
  7. Will be there on Sunday. My pimento TR6 is on the club triumph stand. Tim

    Best door mirrors

    I have the standard black TEX mirrors. No complaints, work well. Tim

    Supercharged TR6

    I think they discontinued it for a couple of reasons. But certainly carbs were an issue. The Holley that they use had to be specially drilled so that it could get the correct pressure signal from the manifold. I have this setup and it does work well. Great on the mountains of the 10 countries run last month. Tim
  10. One thing to be aware of.. some companies don't use new shafts in the gearbox. Instead they fit sleeves to the bearing surfaces.. Worth asking the rebuilder the question. tim
  11. Got mine down by Mike papworth in Coventry. Great service at a very reasonable price. He uses ORS for some of the work on the overdrives. Tim
  12. Yes that would make sense. I fitted the adjustable ones to mine so I could adjust camber easily if I started to play with wide height. Otherwise the geometry is standard (helped by having a new CTM chassis) Tim
  13. Strange comment.. machanisms that allow continuous adjustment are always superior to discontinuous. Or would you rather a torque wrench that only did 10, 20 and 40 ftlbs rather than 10-40 continuous Tim
  14. Hi Tim, Sorry my terminology was a bit misleading. When I said "stock" meant my one personal stash of spares. Fitted the camber only brackets. Think the shims are easy to change for toe in. When I went to fit helicoils is discovered that 1/4 of them had already been done! Tim
  15. Interesting. Went through this very process last weekend. While on the 10CR (alongside Tim Hunt). We noticed that a lot of the TRs seemed to be running excessive camber. My own 6 didn't look to bad. However I had to take the rear suspension appart when I got back to fit CV axles and helicoil (had bought the jig when I was in the US) the studs in the trailing arms (mountain passes + supercharger stresses the system somewhat). I also measured camber and it was 2.5 degrees. I had some adjustable trialing arm mounts in stock so I fitted them. Adjustment back to spec was super simple.very much recommended. Cheers Tim
