Triumph TR6 - Sway Bars, @ and hydraulic release bearing kit

Hi jean G ( ou plutot bonjour),

Firstly, I'll do it in french, it's gonna be easier for me and then, I'll translate:

Pour le rear damper conversion kit, il est vrai que les koni places dans les ressorts sont surement les plus fiables mais on a un peu tendance a l'oublier pour les soudures que l'on doit faire (sur de l'aluminium c'est pas toujours facile).
Je vous deconseille tres vivement tous les kits qui utilisent comme points de support la caisse. Pour ne pas risquer d'abimer la rigidite du chassis, il est preferable que les fixations se fassent sur les points d'origine sans faire d'autres modifs.
Pour les anti-roll bars, j'ai entendu dire que richard goods en PA aux USA en fait de tres bonnes avec des fixations plus solides, mais c'est plutot 229$ pour un cote, a voir.
Je vous laisse differentes adresses:
http://www.racetor.force9.co.uk
ceci est l'@ de racetoration, regardez leur production et discutez avec eux si besoins ait.

http://www.grmotorsports.com/index.html
Ceci est l'@ d'un excellent magazine pour modifier sa voiture, ils font souvent des articles sur les triumphs, c'est la que j'ai trouve l'@ de richard goods, et en plus ils vous envoient a sample issue, comme ca, ca vous donnera une idee.
En plus si vous voulez vous installer un injection electronique TWM fait maintenant des kits tres sympa mais c'est de l'ordre de 2400 a 4000 US$.
Bon courage et bonne annee.
Arnaud.

English version (good luck for understanding me):

For the rear shock conversion, it's true that Koni's placed inside the coil spring is the best and the cheapest but it is strongly recommended to know how to weld on aluminium and to have the tools.
I strongly advise against popular fitments on the body, it is essential for the car to keep all its strengh. That's why, it is better to fix the shock on original points without modifying the body at all.
For the anti roll bars, I've found a a dealer in PA, Richard Goods who seems to have better product than adcco.
Here are some addresses that perhaps some know, it depends on you:
http://www.racetor.force9.co.uk
this is the @ of racetoration which is the manufacturer of the rear aluminium conversion shock.

http://www.grmotorsports.com/index.html
This a good magazine adress, they have sometimes triumph's article and they give samples, if your looking for performance, your in the right place.

Best regards and happy new year.
Arnaud

PS: Do you have any information about hydraulic release bearing kit????

Bonjour,

In fact, I don't think there is any trouble to fit the shock on the frame, but that's not easy as I told you, There might be a palce where they talk about it, I have a dealer (beta7) in paris who carries some, I'll check for you.
For the release bearing kit, this in fact a replacement stuff which eliminates the slave cylinder and the fork, it is directly linked to master cylinder by the original hose. But you have to do certain modifications on the bearing and input shaft I think.
The problem is the price, it is generally high but I found some cheapers.
We'll see, cheers.
Arnaud.

Bonjour,
Mais quel est l'avantage de remplacer le système d'origine. Le seul problême que j'ai eu fut le boulon de la fourche qui était cassé et en le remplaçant par un plus solide (MOSS) je n'ai jamais eu de problême par la suite.

I do not see what advantage it gives to replace original configuration, except that may be clutch is a bit stiff in original configuration.
Merci pour la recherche et à bientôt. Jean Guy
