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. The brake lines on this GT6 are copper nickel alloy. Please visit my website to purchase a kit for your Triumph http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html What we did over the winter: Added a much stiffer rear spring, welded up the differential, Increased the size of the engine crankcase breather substantially, removed the drive shaft and had it balanced to perfection. Also we got a new set of light weight wheels To purchase Cunifer copper nickel brake line kits for your Triumph Spitfire or GT6 contact me.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Alfa Romeo 1900 sprint Touring restoration
This is a tribute to the restoration of a very rusty and battered Alfa Romeo 1900. There is video footage of this restored 1900 being driven (with engine sound) after the initial series of still pictures. I did not have a video recording camera through most of the restoration, also I was more interested in working on the car, hence the still pictures. I thank all of the people who helped us with the project. Many owners provided advice, took pictures, and provided hard to find information and drawings. You all know who you are and I thank you. I finished the restoration this fall (2009) and the car returned home to her happy owner. The sound tracks are both approved by youtube. The first is a snippet from Piccini's Gatling gun and the second is Verdi's La Traviata di Provenza
