    TR6 Cross Tube Differences?

    Can anyone explain the differences from year to year for the TR6 front cross tube? What year would the cross tube in this photo fit?

    According to the Moss catalog there were 3 different versions, but until you raised the question, I didn't know of such.

    Yep. I saw that, which prompted the question. I have a spare cross tube, but I have no idea what year TR6 it will fit.

    Later ones (75/76) extra braceing tabs for the raised bumper. I think the 74 was a little different, others should be same.

    Can't tell you the differences but mine got chromed sometime in it's life. Along with the cam chain cover and fan extension. It would be cool but the chrome is peeling off.
