ah man i have not seen a tr6 in that condition in years.hell i used to make a good living fixin those little jewels.. yea we called the lucas electrical system the prince of darkness LOL!!! the 1919 is a great addition
as a former 67 series 2 A Land Rover 1 st owner with 3/4`s of a million miles on it before i sold it i know exactly what you mean generator about every 6 months and a starter about every two years good thing it had a hand crank
YOu know I have always heard the jokes about Lucus electronics and british cars, but I have owned a 62 Jaguar MKII, a 69 MGC Roadster, a 69 MGC GT, a 71 MGB roadster, I still have a 72 Jaguar V12 SIII Etype, 75 Daimler Double Six, and a 86 Jaguar XJ6, and never had any real electronic problems. Worse thing was one of the MGC's would eat condensers but I think it was the heat. Those 3 liter 6 cyl. motors cramed in under the little hood really put out some heat.
Now rust and oil leaks, thats another story. When people tel me my car is leaking oil I tell them its really the active on board rust proofing system.
Now what I need is advice on how to get two 1919's to pop up out of the fenders (sorry front wings) of the Etype. Now that would be a cool mount.
i remember reading that too!! my dad was a triumph motorcycle dealer in the late 60s and early 70s, he wishes he had taken a couple crated 650 bonnevilles when he got out of the business. iremember when the trident came out,3 cylinders and pretty fast for the times.
WAY OFF TOPIC: Over the 13 years I owned my first TR6, I had to add grounding straps to the engine, the front chassis loom, each tail light and brake light socket, and I had to replace the headlight switch three times. But the only time it wouldn't run, I got a set of new Champion spark plugs with cracked insulators on all six! Lots of fun, but I was constantly working on it. My 1991 Miata hasn't had near the love and attention! Taber
