Nov 23, 2010 update to the Triumph TR6 project car

Triumph Time Machine

Our TR6 is looking good, and with a fresh rebuild it'll run like a top as well.

We used a mildly upgraded camshaft to ensure good street drivability.
A freshly rebuilt engine is one of the most beautiful things we get to take pictures of. Shiny!
Once our rebuilt motor had been properly broken in, we took Autocrossing with our friends from the Vintage Triumph Registry.

While not officially a project, our 1969 Triumph TR6 has recently seen a major improvement: a freshly rebuilt engine. Jere Dotten handled the build in our shop, while JK Jackson built us a head with a bit of porting and decking to raise compression. We went with a GoodParts street cam and kept the powerplant mild for excellent drivability.

We ran in the engine for 500 miles below 3000 rpm to seat the rings. Then the TR6 hit the track at the VTR National meet. We’re very pleased how this car came out. We’ll be writing about it here and there, although we’re afraid of giving our readers an overdose of Triumph editorial right now.
