Or, strictly speaking, a TR6C engine (carbs not PI!)

That spec sounds awfully like an 'S' spec though.

Cheers,
Mike.
Off the top my head I think 'S' was 106 bhp and 105 mph. Them TVR's must be a lot lighter or had different gearbox/fd ratios.

Re: Original Purchase Receipts

Hi all, When looking through this month's issue of the SIXappeal magazine, I noticed that there were a few images of people's original purchase receipts for their cars. I'm wondering if anyone else has these and would like to share them to compare prices of the cars, optional extras etc. Just think...

Re: New Wipers Needed

Even with the original Trico blades that are curved when lifted from the screen, the curvature of the windscreen is such that even they don't always fully contact the screen on the lower right hand side. JD, do you mean n/s on a r/h drive vehicle? The last 10 deg's on the N/S is the only area that ...

Re: Why no love for autos?

I've got auto's on my 2 BMW's and love them. I've yet to find a BW on a Triumph that is smooth changing and not jerky. For this reason, over the years, I've converted 3 to Manual/ Drive. The 2500 that I've had for over 20 years I've had overhauled a couple of years ago. Now like a new one . I put i...

Re: Running on

Hello Kev, when the controlled ignition source is removed, if there is incandescent carbon then fuel will continue to be drawn into the engine as long as it is still turning over. Running on can continue for some time, in severe cases, unless the engine is deliberately stalled using the gearbox and...

Re: Steering lock - Part number 160337

Hope it's better quality than some of their parts that I've used in the past...... :roll: !! :roll: Yes, their quality of re-manufactured parts is now very poor. If it is not NOS then one has to be very wary. It will be postage costs at least to check out one of their parts unless one lives on thei...

Re: Running on

In common with many other engines from the same period, the mechanical fuel pump exacerbates running on, by continuing to pump as the engine turns over continuing to fill the float chambers and supply fuel to the dieseling engine. I have found problems with engines needing a decoke where the carbon...

Re: Running on

I thought the 'S' bhp was 106 not 125. 125 was the late PI. Aahhh, I was referring to the cam (my knackered engine had been fitted with a 125 pi cam) but the new donor engine is fitted with a non Stanpart cam. Isn't running on caused by either a weak mixture, incorrect ignition timing, tick over to...

Running on

Hi Groupies, Just swapped another 2.5s engine into my 's' six months ago. Engine fine in the other vehicle but runs on in it's new home. Engine has a fast road cam - nearer a 150bhp profile than a 125 profile. Carbs swapped from my knackered engine to this unit. Refurbished about 20 years and 30,000...

Re: Boot Carpet Panels

Hi Clifford, mine is a post face lift, so the spare wheel is in the floor. Not sure how I'd go about making the cover for an earlier one. Any ideas? I believe they would have been heat moulded. One could do the same if a shape near enough diamentially was utilised/made and then a sufficient enough ...
