  1. Stag Re: Converting a Stag from auto to a 5 speed

    Best thing to do is find a donor. When I parted out a Staaaaaag a couple years ago, I sold OD trans as a package deal on eBay. I think I got $850 or so from it. Try going that route, maybe?

    Sorta odd 1500 question...

    I'll start of by saying I'm a Triumph guy. I know a bit about Spitfires and Heralds. So when a co worker bought a '79 Midget and had some emissions control questions, I figured I'd help out. Anyway,...

    TR6 Re: TR6 OD?

    Thanks guys. Are the driveshafts the same between OD and non OD? I rescued a rebuilt motor, trans and OD from a pick-n-pull yard. Too bad I don't have a TR6 to put it in... :P

    TR6 owners, what's an OD conversion worth? '75 vintage.
  12. Spitfire Re: Spitfire Rear Wheel Flanges-Common Problem or DPO?

    Those things are on there so tight I cannot envision a hub spinning on the axle. My vote is to blame the PO. If the PO was such a hack, it makes me wonder how they managed to get the hubs apart in...

    Re: Roll Bar Question with pics

    If you do bolt plates up underneath, be sure to make them bigger than the existing plates. Same size plates will act like a shear and rip through the sheet metal.

    Sammio Spyder group buy?

    I OK'd this subject with basil a few weeks back. I am in no way affiliated with the producer of this kit and am not profiting from this in any way, other than saving boat-loads of $$$ on shipping.

    Re: What do you guys think of the Sammio?

    I think I read somewhere they weigh about 1200 pounds, so yes. Swap in a hot 1296 and OD, should be a very fun car.

    I'm going to swap everything out with another in the morning. I do have one other thought, maybe the passenger side shock is binding? I'll look there first.
