Triumph TR8 highway runs
Breaking in BAD8 the proper way. 160 miles on new motor setup. Seems to be
running well, pinging slightly and the new transmission is still tight.

Triumph TR7 Wedge - Cold Start - Startup
Starting my British classic 1980 Triumph TR7 Roadster (30th Anniversary
edition) after sitting in non-heated barn for six months during winter.
Gettin' her ready for some spring driving and more car shows! Has manual
choke conversion from Victoria British 3:45 (had the original BEESWAX
thermo-choke when I bought the car, which was completely rotted!) If you
wanna skip the lead-up, the actual start is at about 4:00.
1981 Triumph TR8 STK # 598
Here is an extremely rare British sports car, the Triumph TR8. Considered
by many to be "The English Corvette" the 1981 Triumph TR8 was the last of
the Triumph breed and only around 2,300 were ever built. This one has been
meticulously restored and has had many major upgrades to enhance its
performance. Call it a TR8 restomod. Weighing in at only 2,700 pounds this
car is an absolute blast to drive. Has a non-original but much better
performing Oldsmobile performance V8. Full custom Exhaust system and an aftermarket sound system
have been added as well. The five speed manual gearbox shifts smoothly,
rowing through the gears in this car is sure to put a smile on your face.
Aftermarket wheels cover custom Wilwood disc brakes that have been added to
give your peace of mind with the increased power on tap. This is a very
nicely restored car with a straight body, mint condition interior, and high
quality paint job. This one is truly one of a kind! Call us at 866-542-8392
for more details.
1981 Triumph TR8 fuel system diagnosis.
Car started dying out, and I suspected a fuel delivery problem. So out
came the gauge to test, listen closely you can hear the pump whining. The
fuel pressure gauge just started acting up in this vid, the pressure
reading should of been lower, but it was sticking! Time to get a new one.

Like many auto companies, Triumph started out making bicycles but like the
others found a new life in the four wheel world.
Known mainly for its sports cars the company also produced family cars but
it was the roadsters that got the attention.
Unfortunately, the company dissolved along with the rest of British Leyland
and the brand's name is now owned by BMW.
