Triumph GT6 Mk3 race car
I did a lot of work porting the cylinder head to make the engine rev so freely. The stock Exhaust ports are originally are nearly square. The Exhaust headers have nearly round ports and a lot of material had to be removed from the head casting to match the two. I also cut off the bottoms of the Exhaust guides, although I do not think this makes a big difference. The intake is also port matched. I was a bit concerned about the huge amount of material removed from the head around the Exhaust ports, but so far we have about 8 races on this engine and it has performed superbly.

First start of new Triumph GT6 race engine
Update Warning: Do not use ARP rod bolts. I have had two rod bolt failures now due to the bolts backing out. I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws.

This is the very first (very gentle) start of our new high compression race engine. We have new Arias custom made forged pistons, a lightened fly wheel and a recurved distributor. It looks like we will make it to the vintage race a Lime rock park this Labor day!

This is Triumph
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.

Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1
A tour of the GT6 race car engine bay , part 1. Visit http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html for information on the copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be adding part 2 of this video next week. My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very little information about it's history. The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the work done on the head, the Exhaust header and the weber carb setup.





1967 Triumph Spitfire EV Conversion - Student Project
Mechanical Engineering Students from the University of Colorado Denver spent the Summer of 2009 converting a broken down 1967 Triumph Spitfire into a 100% Electric Vehicle. Our EV conversion can reach a top speed of 75 MPH and has a maximum range of 40 miles (of average city driving) all with an overnight charge (8-10 hours) on a standard 110 Volt outlet. We completed the entire conversion for under $10,000 including almost $2,000 of restoration work, all in about 8 weeks. For more information on this project please visit http://www.stefanelsener.com/EV





Triumph Story
The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England. In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary "Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry. The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful. In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.
