    75 TR 6 seat track location

    So I have a 75 TR 6 which had rotten floor pans which I have cut out. In addition this car had different seats in it from some other unknown car. I have obtained the correct seats and tracks. Now here is the problem, I have no idea as to where to locate the tracks. The bolt holes on the frame do not line up with the holes on the track. Are the tracks just bolted to the floor pan? Help....and Thanks

    The seat sliders are mounted directly to the floor, not the frame. Normally you would have nuts inside cages on the underside of the floor pan. As to the exact location of those holes for the tracks I can not help you. But will tell you that if you are particularly tall you my wish to determine the best location for the tracks for yourself. I believe that the TR4 through 6 all have the same bolt hole locations.

    That is correct... the nuts are welded to the floor pans in the TR6. If you cut out the floor pans and have the sections that you cut out, have a look at them for location.
    Possibly just replace the floor pans with new ones....

    Thank you....this was a big surprise. So I will go find a TR 6 and measure their track location and duplicate. What do you mean with the term "cages"? Cheers

    I have attached a pic of a floor panel and circled in WHITE the caged nut for the seat rails.
    Hopefully you will be able to see the nut welded to the floor panel.

    There was a small spacing washer between the floor and seat track - WM67 in the parts book. The seats had never been out of my 74.5 and I was surprised how small they were; 1/4" tall but not very wide. I replaced them with some about as wide as the track. Originally there was underfelt under the seats, but it can can hold moisture and lead to rust.

    I'll add a picture of the original spacers if I can find them...

    I'll save you the trouble, Tropic. Original spacers on the left. They looked sort of wimpy to me, too. New ones on the right.
