  1. I have straight radius arms on my Rotoflex mk3 GT6 but the manual shows them as offset. Which should it be? I can’t believe I’ve only just noticed this!
  2. Hi, I've recently been lucky enough to purchase a TR6 manufactured in 1972. I also own a GT6 Mk3 manufactured in 1970 right at the start of the production run (No.16) which I'm restoring. The GT6 has a hazard flasher switch. The TR6 does not. I have the Driver's handbook for the TR ,which I believe is the original, which contains narrative and pics that say/show clearly my RHS vehicle does not have hazards but that the LHS version does. Also, the TR has a headlight flash/dip switch in the footwell although the handbook makes no mention of this but does say this function is achieved from the column lighting stalk which in my case provides the three functions - on/off, side and headlights. The handbook says the light's on/off function is provided by a rocker switch on the dash to the RHS of the steeringwheel, below which should be the small square version of the combined wiper/washer control I've seen on other Triumphs. On mine both switches are the vertical oblong type, the upper switch is the wiper control, the lower the washer. The corresponding wiring diagram does show a hazard switch/unit. In the handbook the sketch diagram of the dashboard (as opposed to the pics of the instruments and switches etc) is exactly the same as my installed dash. It seems strange that a safety function such has hazard warning lights would not be installed on a 1972 build vehicle. As I'm right at the start of my TR journey if anyone has ideas, thoughts or even the actual answer to these anomalies I'd appreciate hearing them - I just hate not understanding/knowing! Many thanks, Paul
  3. My ‘72 GT6 has got this plastic mount, which is secured with a set screw. There’s no evidence that it’s ever been different but I can’t find it listed anywhere. Does anybody else’s car use this too?
  4. I've just fitted some wider rear wheels to the back of my gt6 and have noticed that the driver side rear wheel is almost an inch further back in the wheel arch than the passenger side. Passenger side seems quite central where as driver side is noticeably not centred. So my question is how much movement do you have on the chassis to body mounts and could I loosen mounts and square up both rear wheels to the wheel arches? The car drives straight and doesn't scrub the tyres so I'm assuming it has to be body mounts not being in line rather than rear suspension components not being in line also my car doesn't appear to lean at all either side so I'm hoping I can just loosen the body mounts and nudge the driver side of the body back 1/2 inch to an inch Anyone have any experience with fitting a body to a chassis and know how much play there is? Thanks Dan
  5. Hi guys, I have a question regarding the wiring on my 1972 Triumph GT6 MK3, and was wondering if anyone could help clear it up. I had a auto electrician come over a few days ago to help with the wiring who has worked on a GT6 before and couldn't get his head round the wiring set up which links the flamethrower oil to the distributor cap. I have included pictures of my current set up below. The engine turns over but doesn't run, this is due to there being no sparks on the spark plugs which tells me something isn't set up properly on the coil?? I may be wrong but if anyone can give me some advance on the wiring set up or send me pictures of their set up I would really appreciate it. Thanks! Jim.
  6. Hi guys, Having trouble fitting my 1972 Triumph GT6 MK3 that I am restoring. The bonnet isn't original to the car and when I bought it it had a poorly fitting fibreglass one on. The last owner sold me an original bonnet with it but not sure if it's off the same GT6. A lot of the body work has been replaced on the chassis and body including the hinge boxes and lower side panels of the body. I have attached pictures below of the bonnet is about an inch out at the moment. If anyone has any advice on how to resolve this issue I would be eternally grateful, as the problem is holding everything up at the moment. And I can't figure out why it isn't fitting and have tried pretty much everything to get it to fit including cutting and re welding the front binge boxes, which improved it but didn't solve it. Thanks! Jim.
  7. Hi all, While assembling my dashboard for my Triumph GT6 MK3 I discovered that I have the wrong length metal fixing for the RPM Gauge that fixes it in place onto my wooden dashboard, after looking online I cant seem to find them available to purchase, does anyone know the specific name of them or are they just called Gauge fixings?? Please see pictures below. Hope someone can help. Kind regards, Jim.
