    TR6 Re: Bell Stainless Exhaust System,tr6 ??

    Kerry,
    If you are considering a "brake upgrade," I suggest you examine the popular Toyota calipers that fit Triumphs. I have them on both my TR6 and TR3.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Front Sway Bar on a 56 TR3

    Thanks JP, you guys are killing me. We haven't gotten the front fixed and you're already talking about the back.

    Thanks for all the info.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Installation of a Macy's Hurricane Fan

    Not really JP and the diagram in their instructions is of a stock fan, not the installation of their kit.
    The fan is very high quality, just having a problem deciphering the instructions to install.
