    Re: The end of an era?

    It's interesting to me as well. When I moved to new Zealand, I actually brought 2 TVRs with me, having sold the Marlin before I moved. The amount of hassle and red tape to get a new windscreen...

    Re: triumph 2500 engine and gearbox

    That's interesting to me - that means that there must be a bellhousing conversion for Triumph 6 to type 9 gearbox available. All these years on, I reckon I should have bought a hybrid instead of...

    triumph 2500 engine and gearbox

    I am interested did anyone (except me) ever fit either a 2500 engine, or a Saloon/TR6 gearbox in their Triumph or hybrid roadster? Or can I claim the Purple Peril was, and remains, unique ?

    Re: What is this plug ?

    To me doesn't look like a throttle sensor, as it doesn't seem to have a 'rotation' or movement type setup. I wonder if it's a WOT switch (Efi systems typically have a WOT setting, = Wide Open...
